The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child Cover Sparks China Controversy

This Rafael Grampa cover for Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child apparently caused a bit of controversy online as some in China apparently interpreted it as veiled support for the Hong Kong protesters.

After initially including the cover image on Twitter and Instagram posts, DC ultimately deleted those posts, although it apparently has no plans to remove the cover from the Dec. 11 release of the comic.

Lee Se-Dol Retires from Go Due to AI That “Cannot Be Defeated”

I’m old enough to remember when people used to hold Go out as an example of a game that would be impossible for a computer to exceed human players. Not so much anymore.

A master player of the Chinese strategy game Go has decided to retire, due to the rise of artificial intelligence that “cannot be defeated”.

. . .

The South Korean said he had decided to retire after realising: “I’m not at the top even if I become the number one.”

“There is an entity that cannot be defeated,” the 18-time world Go champion told South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.
