NEW YORK - Tired of staring at your Christmas tree or flickering menorah - or at legions of rival shoppers at the mall?
LOS ANGELES - The Chernin Group, a media company run by former News Corp. Chief Operating Officer Peter Chernin, has taken a majority stake in Crunchyroll Inc., a provider of anime videos to mobile devices, game consoles and Internet-connected TVs.
LOS ANGELES - "Frozen" could ice out the competition at the Annie Awards.
KILDEER, Illinois - It could be a plot from a classic comic book: A mild-mannered boy with the good Spidey sense to treat his comics like priceless manuscripts grows into a man who must use the valuable collection to fight his greatest foe, a rare disease threatening to rob him of his ability to walk.
Instead of the bygone damsels in distress - yes we're talking about you Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty - the female royals of "Frozen," Disney's latest animated wonder, are feisty, forward and independent.
YORK, Pennsylvania - Cover art from a 50-year-old comic book featuring Superman's alter-ego, Clark Kent, as President John F. Kennedy in disguise was sold at an auction for $112,015.

His pot-bellied, large-nosed, hapless cartoon characters have populated the local funny pages for 21 years, starting in the Anchorage Daily News and spreading to over 550 newspapers across the United States, Europe and even the Caribbean.
COLUMBUS, Ohio - There is a place where Snoopy frolics carefree with the scandalous Yellow Kid, where Pogo the possum philosophizes alongside Calvin and Hobbes. It's a place where Beetle Bailey loafs with Garfield the cat, while Krazy Kat takes another brick to the noggin, and brooding heroes battle dark forces on the pages of fat graphic novels.
PITTSBURGH - Comic books and hip-hop have a lot in common, if Homestead comics writer-artist Ed Piskor is to be believed.

They both revolve around elaborate transformations, alter-egos, symbolic costumes, team-ups, rivalries, legendary battles, mysterious origins and so on.
