A vinyl version of Amy Poehler’s book Yes Please is scheduled to hit shelves Sept. 1, and it comes with some strict instructions: “Please approach Yes Please Vinyl with an open mind and low expectation of gossip.” The book allows fans to get more intimately acquainted with the comedian through stories, lists, poetry, and more. An unabridged version includes guest vocal appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, and her parents. [HarperCollins]

The second issue of Archie vs. Predator doesn’t come out until May 20, but you can catch a glimpse of the cover here, or the alternate version here. This issue will find Archie and the gang headed back Riverdale, only to be pursued by the Predator and forced to create a secret weapon-Jughead in drag. And if you’re in the mood for more monsters, Archie and his friends will battle Sharknado on July 22.   [Adweek]

You won’t have to wait much longer for more Benedict Cumberbatch, but his latest project isn’t exactly new. The Sherlock actor narrated Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis a few years ago, and now BBC Radio 4 Extra is airing it on Monday. The literary classic follows the story of a salesman who is transformed into a huge insect overnight. Don’t worry, if you missed the live broadcast, it will be available for streaming here.
