Geek Links of the Week

This summer’s World War Z movie as all the markings of an unmitigated disaster. Vanity Fair looks at the massive re-write and re-shoot to try to make the movie actually make sense. [Vanity Fair]

AOL killed off its popular Comics Alliances site this week. Is this the beginning of the end for comic book blogging or is the end of blogging for profit already here and we’re all just hanging for dear life? [Comic Beat]

The Thief reboot by Eidos Montreal got a lot of people excited but it has been nothing but an unmitigated disaster behind the scenes. [Polygon]

Speaking of thieves, the creators of the Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat memes are suing Warner Bros. and 5th Cell over the inclusion of said memes in Scribblenauts Unlimited.

Facebook is going to start charging you to message people you aren’t friends with and gouge you should you message famous people on Facebook. They are the evil empire. [BuzzFeed]
