Graphic Novel Round-up: Thank God for Small Dogs
Underground Reading: Ancient Appetites by Oisin McGann

Bet no one calls him 'Kitty' now...

Sir Christopher Lee has been knighted.

As Wired points out, Christopher Lee is probably the King of all (Nerd) Franchises - what with appearing in Lord of the Rings,  James Bond, Star Wars and everything ever made by Hammer. (As well as Gremlins and Witch Mountain).

And that doesn't count appearances in film adaptations of Discworld and The Golden Compass, numerous movies by Tim Burton, TV adaptations of Gormenghast and video game franchises like Kingdom Hearts and EverQuest. Basically, name something geeky, and Sir Christopher has been there, adding his special sinister sauce into the mix.
