These webcomics have my unqualified hearty recommendation. There’s enough quality content here to tide you over until Season 2 of False Positive starts.
Looking for webcomics to add to your regularly reading? Look no further than the man who does the False Positive comic himself.
PS.. Spacegirl is quite good.

As a Disney geek and former Nintendo addict, I was fired up for Wreck-It Ralph when I heard about it at the D23 Convention last year. Here are 15 facts about the movie that will get you just as pumped as I am, whether you were the world’s best “Tapper” bartender or consider yourself more of a “Dance Dance Revolution” phenom.
Always good to learn that actors are recording their lines together instead of separately.

As we considered the different opportunities for imagery on Wednesday, it quickly became clear that one option was a picture of the island of Manhattan taken from the air, showing the clear delineation of lights on and off in different parts of the city. We called Iwan Baan, one of our contributing photographers, to see if he happened to be in New York at the moment. (He is based out of Amsterdam, but travels the world, and often stops by New York.) Baan’s photography focuses primarily on contemporary architecture and its relationship to the urban language of the city. He shoots from every possible perspective, including high up in the air from planes and helicopters. “That view of Manhattan, I had it in mind because I’d shot it a number of times before,” he said on Monday from Haiti, where he’s already on another international assignment.
New York Magazine — always a good read.

Dear Gray Overcast Sky,
You have been lying irrelevantly overhead for several days now and I’m tired of seeing your glooms. You remind me of the Grinch before his heart grew three sizes in that one day.
And I’ve come to realize that I want the sun and you can only offer the clouds. I don’t judge you, that’s who you are.
You’ve changed and I have as well. Or maybe I just see you differently these days. We’ll never again be lovers and I’m not even sure I want to be friends.
I do know that I want to fold you so your corners don’t meet and stuff you in a mothballed box. Then throw you in the attic until I need to feel depressed. And more than likely that’s never again.
I’m moving on.. Maybe not physically, but emotionally we’re through.

EW has learned that the Discovery reality series — in which everything from urban legends to Hollywood scenes are scrutinized in the name of science — will put AMC drug drama Breaking Bad under the microscope with an episode that includes appearances by star Aaron Paul and creator Vince Gilligan. “We’ve been wanting to do a Breaking Bad episode for awhile,” says Mythbusters host Adam Savage. “Obviously there’s a lot of fertile material to play with, so things that happen on the show have been ending up on our list of stories to tackle for a couple years now. And when Vince said in an interview that he’d love to see a Mythbusters/Breaking Bad crossover, we reached out to him directly and the response was overwhelming positive.”
Savage and co-host Jamie Hyneman will test the science from a scene in season 1 of Bad, in which Paul’s Jesse Pinkman uses hydrofluoric acid to dissolve a body but ignores instructions from Walt (Bryan Cranston) to use a plastic container. Jesse places the body in a bathtub instead and the acid eats right through the tub, which winds up falling through the floor. “Hydrofluoric acid is terrifying stuff,” notes Savage. “It’s not quite like alien blood, which is what a lot of people think when they think of powerful acids. It’s poisonous in a way that is completely unique and very disturbing.”
Ladies and gents, set your Tivos for this Spring.
