Has there been any contestant on a singing or dancing TV competition that has performed something "nerdy", such as songs from video games, cartoons, or Internet media? The one example I can think of is a Dancing with the Stars routine to Super Mario.
I want to start reading/watching Voltron. Not sure where to dive in. [more inside]
When I was a teenager, I checked out a Lynda Barry collection of Marlys-Maybonne-Freddie Stories from the school library. The stories were mostly about Maybonne, and in particular contained a storyline where she fooled around with a Vietnam veteran in a car. What (likely out of print) collection am I remembering?

I am interested in reading some visually dazzling comics or graphic novels. I would love to find examples that were made with beautifully painted panels, incorporated collages, or are otherwise interesting on a visual level. What do you recommend?
My neighbors' outdoor cats, whom I catsit occasionally and interact with regularly, have names that I cannot quite parse, even though my neighbor has repeated them for me on several occasions. Both cats are male. One cat is "Dillon" or "Dylan." The other cat's name sounds like "Sits" or "Zits" or "Sitz." When I looked confused at some point, my neighbor said the names were "from a comic" or "from a cartoon." [more inside]

Please help me find manga and/or anime that has a story that would appeal to a mature audience, but without "mature" content. [more inside]

I work in a lab with rhesus monkeys. They need names. For reasons of historical precedent and notational convenience, lab animals are usually named alphabetically, from A ("Abe") until you run out of monkeys. For reasons of awesomeness, we're naming our monkeys after spunky cartoon characters. So, please help me come up with the best comic/cartoon/superhero names for each letter of the alphabet.

Are there any US colleges or universities that offer majors in comics and cartooning (the traditional 2D variety, not 3D animation)?

Realistic potraits cartoons: are there any art available of known cartoon/comic characters drawn as though they were real-life potraits? [more inside]
After hearing plenty of news about the cartoons recently published by the Jyllands-Posten, I tried looking for the cartoons online to see what all the hoopla was about. The thing is, I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anybody know where they can be found?
Cartoonists in the movies? [more inside]
The last wive in the Desperate Housewives titles. Who is she? Is she from something? Does this style of cartoon have a name?
Webcomics: If just about anybody can make one, what tools/resources would I need? I have a good mental picture of character design, but my hand drawing is hardly worth scanning, so I might as well do it all on my compy (Yes, XQ, you can try to talk me out of it). At least at first, it'll mostly be standing-around-swapping-punchlines, so nothing too complicated. So what's out there to make me a webtoonist?
A couple of friends of mine were recently discussing some old French cartoons and would love any help tracking them down you might be able to provide. Even names, general info, etc. would be appreciated. [More Inside] [more inside]
