I saw the black and white film from 1959, The Law, on TCM last week, and I could swear the new ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana was lifted from it. Shot by Steven Klein, it features the usual guys, David Gandy, Adam Senn, and Sam Webb, along with Tony Ward and others. (Source:Swide)

So, it's 2012, and civilization as you know it is no more. Zombies roam the world, and they're hungry. Hungry for flesh. You have no food, no bars, and no internet. You have to hit the road. What do you wear? These fashions from the Arnaldo Ventura runway show for 2011 look to fit the bill. (Source:Simply Male Models)

In the previous issue of Young Avengers: Children's Crusade, Billy(Wiccan)Kaplan had tried to rescue Wanda Maximoff, once known as the Scarlet Witch, and Billy and twin brother Tommy's possible mother, from a fate worse than death...marriage to Doctor Doom! Doom isn't happy about Billy's arrival and interference, not to mention that Victor is the ruler of the fictional Marvel Universe land of Latveria, which makes Billy's actions sort of illegal. Meanwhile:
Wanda's brother, Pietro, known as Quicksilver, the sibling's father, Magneto, and the other Young Avengers prepare to invade Latveria to rescue Billy, but are met with resistance by the actual Avengers.
Back in the castle:
Wanda, who has amnesia and is seemingly powerless (not the first time for the character) wants to know what Billy knows about her. He does, so long as she helps him escape..
Billy's history is missing a key element, in that Vision is a synthetic being, and in order for Wanda and he to give birth, her powers of manipulating probabilities had to be amped up to Godlike proportions of creating lifeby writer Steve Englehart. John Byrne actually had the twins be a manifestation of demonic souls that Wanda had tapped into with her powers, which was more in line with the character's capabilities. I'm not certain whether we're getting Billy's wishful thinking here, or a Marvel editorial edict that the Byrne explanation be tweaked in order to cement the family ties of the newer characters.
Don't know what Billy was going to tell Wanda about her later actions because they suddenly arrive at the scene of a battle involving all the other players:
and are in jeopardy when the issue ends, with a 'to be continued'...
