COMIC BOOKS—DC Comics originally hired Ender's Game author/homophobic bigot Orson Scott Card to write a story in their new Adventures of Superman. Controversy ensued, and Card's contribution was quickly cut—Floating World Comics is celebrating the now hate-free comic's release with a signing featuring great local writer Jeff Parker! Plus, proceeds will go to LGBT charity allout.org! Hooray! EH

MUSIC—Holy Fire, Foals' third record, delves into ambitious, atmospheric waters while retaining the schizophrenic precision that has earned them near-universal acclaim in their native England. With a deserved reputation as an enthralling live act to boot, it's only a matter of time before they're headlining festivals on this side of the pond. AR
