Have to say I’m surprised it took this long for a TARDIS hoodie to crop up, but man do I want one. Available at Hot Topic this stylish and comfy hoodie will set you back about $45. No guarantees it’s bigger on the inside. Or rather, smaller on the outside. [Geek Tyrant]
It’s one of the Ooddest – ha! I’m not sorry – but still unbearable adorable proposals to date. A man proposes to his girlfriend while disguised as an Ood. You’ll have to read it, over on The Mary Sue, to believe it.

Spoilers guys, but there’s a pretty major death in Amazing Spider-Man #700, and it looks like Stan “The Man” Lee doesn’t think too highly of it. I have a feeling this has been photoshopped, but either way never a good sign when a character’s creator is shredding such a monumental issue. [Geeks are Sexy]
