Geek Links of the Week

Gamma Squad has put together a beginner’s guide to comic books for folks who want to start buying comic books. The Cole’s Notes version of it is don’t be afraid to go into a store and buy whatever you want. [Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4]

Red shirts on the Enterprise had a rough go of it but that wasn’t the worst colour shirt to wear. Statistically, the worst option is the command gold shirt. [Significance Magazine]

Wasn’t it cool when Neil deGrasse Tyson said that Thor’s hammer Mjolnir weighed the equivalent of a herd of 300 billion elephants? Well, it turns out that he might have misinterpreted the making of Mjolnir and it put his calculation off by about 300 billion elephants. [The Abstract – NCSU]

This is the same company that’s picked up how many PS3 GOTY and overall GOTY (among other) awards for the Uncharted franchise. I wish they can make as many stupid mistakes for their PS4 efforts. [Eurogamer]
