Keep following our Twitter all weekend – if news escapes, Jim’ll catch it. Monday’s morning list will be a recap of the best stuff he’s seen – so that means no WeekStarter/Hangover list.

Before we begin, here are a few things we didn’t have room for in other posts today:

Secret Wars returns to Marvel. I’d expect toy tributes too.

-What’s the matter with Kansas? Sriracha at Taco Bell.

-Cosplay proves that the U.S. is financially doomed.

-James Earl Jones is still Darth Vader.

-The new Star Wars arcade game looks badass.

-Imagine Pacific Rim as a video game in which both Jaegers and Kaiju get to eat the humans.

-Zombie-animal comic The Other Dead gets a TV series…on Animal Planet.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs: The Prequel Series?

-Chinese Star Wars comic from back in the day is insane.
