Well, Snooki just gave birth last night. It's also known that the ancient Mayans foretold 2012 as the End of the World.

Karl Kesel, a writer and inker for DC Comics, is selling a trove of old comics that he's been collecting and preserving since childhood.

What for? The Kesels recently adopted a baby with heroin-addicted birth parents, and need money to pay for the child's rehabilitation costs.

Kesel has found some solace in the sale:

I don't necessarily feel like I'm putting away childish things. I may be putting away my childish things. But I'm embracing Isaac's.
I think I'm getting another childhood here.
