Thanks to developer Dan Loewenherz, Facebook just got a little bit creepier—or more loving, depending on your point of view. That's all thanks to the new application Loewenherz recently released: Breakup Notifier.

So what, exactly, does Breakup Notifier do?

"You like someone. They're in a relationship. Be the first to know when they're out of it," reads the description posted to Breakup Notifier's main page.

As described, the exact particulars of how the service works are fairly simple. You just have to log into Breakup Notifier using your Facebook account, and then select the various people on your friends list whose relationships are of critical interest to your daily life. Should said relationships change—for better or for worse—you'll get an email referencing the friend and the specific change made.

Too Much Coffee Man

Now that Borders has jumped headlong into bankruptcy, it's revealed that they're deep into Diamond Comic Distributors for $3.9 Million. They also owe Penguin Books $41 Million.

As part of the bankruptcy, Borders will be closing something like 200 of their stores.

I already get my books from Amazon, but with my local Borders closing, where the heck am I going to get my coffee?

Captain Action Winter SpecialBeau Smith and Eduardo Barreto make a great comic book team, a kind of one-two punch of writing and art. Of course, you already know this if you've put down some cash for Cobb: Off The Leash (IDW) or their recent graphic novel, Wynonna Earp: The Yeti Wars (also IDW).

They're back at it again with Moonstone Books' latest Captain Action title, Captain Action Winter Special. Beau and Eduardo have teamed up for a Captain Action Classified story called "White Lies."

Beau wrote it, and Eduardo illustrated and colored it. In this 13-page extravaganza, the Captain mixes it up with spies, commies, a Yeti (they make great villains, and Eduardo draws an impressively dangerous one), and a traitorous gal.

As always with Beau and Eduardo, the dialogue pops and the action never lets up. They make Captain Action a real man of action, a James Bondian character who rocks the blue jumpsuit and Captain's hat. There's another story in this issue, too, where Cap meets the Green Hornet (not Seth Rogen). But "come for the Beau/Eduardo, and stay for the GH."


World of WarcraftBlizzard Entertainment, the World of Warcraft people, are looking for a Franchise Development Producer, “a highly organized individual with outstanding communications skills, proven experience in production, and a track record of shipping AAA products to help lead the efforts on its next-gen MMO.”
 
One word: Yeah!

You get to be “the key evangelist for producing products which expand the next-gen MMO brand outside of the gaming industry” and “the key liaison between the development team and other functional teams within Blizzard Entertainment to create brand-extending merchandise for the next-gen MMO franchise.”


Dark Horse Presents #1You can’t beat the power of the hammer. There’s a new Thor trailer floating around that feels much more impressive than the earlier Fortress of Solitude one. I’m liking it more and more, even if the big battle in the desert town looks very movie set-ish.

Now let's read some stuff...

Chaykin: Here’s an interview with one of my favorite creators, Howard Chaykin, talking about his upcoming work at Dark Horse.

Chew: Marc-Oliver Frisch at Comics Beat tackles John Layman to the ground and asks him lots of questions about food, comics and work-for-hire.

Smart: I wanted to conduct an interview with Darryl Cunningham, but he’s so smart that it would only serve to point out how not-smart I am. Fortunately, Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter is a smarty and he landed an excellent interview with the creator of Psychiatric Tales.

Batman: The Pullbox talks to my old friend, the comics historian Peter Sanderson. Subject: The Batman TV series from 1966.


LivesIf you think e-commerce is selling tabs to college kids at the local warehouse rave, not only is your career going to be short-lived, you’ll soon be a third act plot twist on Gossip Girl or 90210.

Tokyopop, the Los Angeles-based manga publisher is looking for an E-Commerce Associate or Manager, (title depending on your experience).

You’re expected to maximize “product sales through Tokyopop’s e-commerce activities.” This involves “e-commerce storefront management, online promotions, quality assurance testing and key performance metrics, and demonstrated understanding of web technologies, browsers, analytics and content management systems and processes.”

They want you to bring your A-game and “hit the ground running” so they want you to have “several years of e-commerce experience” and be “entrepreneurial in nature with a service-oriented mindset.”


Yu Gi Oh Bonds Beyond TimeDid you know that there’s a new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie coming out? Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D Bonds Beyond Time is scheduled to debut on February 26 in 300 digital US theaters.

For those in the know, this marks the 10th anniversary of Yu-Gi-Oh! Those who drop into the theater to see it big-screen will “receive a promotional Malefic Red Eyes Black Dragon card along with a mini-manga from Viz Media.”

It’s like Free Comic Book Day at the movie theater. You’ll find a way to locate your nearest theater at the link.

If you’re a fan, go forth!
