The sincerest form of flattery

The company that represents the Diary of a Wimpy Kid brand recently won a temporary restraining order against the publisher of two Wimpy Kid-parodying graphic novels: the "Wimpy Zombie" series by Fred Perry and David Hutchison. According to Publishers Weekly, the zombie books strongly resemble the originals, and their publishers didn't include a "parody" stamp.

I'm sorry for Mr. Kinney and all... but I'm so relieved they've run out of ways to "improve" upon Jane Austen. Way to move on to fresh blood, parody publishers! But you might want to hire a lawyer—unlike Jane Austen, living authors are lot more likely to sue.
