Hey, two days in a row:

First, a quick report on Arsenal’s dismantling of Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League today.

From the world of webcomics, John Allison starts a news series featuring Esther from Scary Go Round (yaye!), and ComicCritics takes on APE in a strip featuring Shannon Wheeler and Too Much Coffee Man.

Finally, I may find the time to do my own Mad Men review, but in the meantime, Daynah Burnett at PopMatters considers Sunday’s finale to be a brilliant close to a season marked by “dark ideas”, while Amanda Marcotte on Pandagon sees it as a mess of an episode that, among other things, seems to duck the abortion question for Joan.
