Do you remember that Marvel Team-up story when Spider-Man partnered with the 1920’s hero, Dominic Fortune, who just happens to reside at Aunt May’s retirement home?

The truth is, even those of us who work with cookbooks, write about cookbooks, collect cookbooks — heck, even write cookbooks ourselves — don't actually cook from cookbooks.

It’s a place where cultures clash but also where sports and comic memorabilia collectors can converge.
LOS ANGELES — We all know he can leap tall buildings in a single bound and bend steel in his bare hands. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that during a time of crisis even the porn industry turns to Superman.
A Tucson attorney who designed and patented a Spider-Man toy got ensnared in his own legal web because of how he negotiated a deal with Marvel Comics.
A TV show DVD set represents more than a holiday gift that’s easy to wrap. It also demonstrates respect: you know the recipient is mentally fit and couch-ready for a viewing marathon of “Dr. Who” or “House.”
Let's not panic. We all know that Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Wonder bread and the rest of Hostess Brands' oddly everlasting foods aren't going away any time soon, even if the food culture that created them is gasping its last.
