I have a student who’s really into comics, she was reading Shade the Changing Man between lessons the other day and she has cool Watchmen school stuff among other things.

Anyway, today she was basically cosplaying Death in my class, with black clothing and make-up and a beautiful ankh necklace. I asked her if it was just a coincidence or if her look was a reference to Sandman, and she said that she was definitely going for a Death look and was glad I noticed.

I was very very tempted to just tell her who fucking cares about Martin Luther let’s talk Season of Mists.

My three favorite Marvel characters are Spidey, Cap Marvel and Wiccan

And right now Peter is “dead” and his body is inhabited by one of his greatest enemies, Carol had a brain lesion that made her forget her friends and Billy was on the verge of suicide - twice - to save his estranged boyfriend.

So, it’s either a-Marvel likes sorrow porn or b-I know how to pick ‘em.

We get Saga, The Wake, Young Avengers, Sex Criminals, FF, Fatale and Ultimate Spider-Man all on the same week, how are all the other weeks going to compete.

Whatever happened to Hawkeye and Mara though, feels like I haven’t read them in ages.

All those stupid batfeels

A few months ago after watching The Dark Knight Rises I was so high on my batmania that I started re-reading my favorite Batman arc ever, Cataclysm/No Man’s Land. But I was so busy, it was time-consuming and I had other things to read so I stopped.

Now I started again because I have more free time. I’m just past page 77 of the first trade and I already teared up three times.

  • Once when Barbara finds the young cop crying outside the destroyed police hq and tells him to get his shit together
  • then when Dick rescues the little kid and the kid calls him Batman and you can feel this shortest of pauses as Dick doesn’t contradict him, thinks of Bruce (he doesn’t know if Bruce’s ok) and then reassures the kid that he’s gonna save his mom
  • and finally when Babs is being her awesome bosslady self in police hq pushing back thoughts of her dad and Bullock comes in and he’s all like, yeah Babs you do your thing but I’m gonna look for your dad, and there’s that gorgeous shadowed panel of Barbara saying “Thank God”.

This story is going to be the death of me.

imissanonymous:

Heartbreaking. Truly heartbreaking.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the contrast between the extreme, painful, violent thing Billy wants to do and the ridiculous alien gun that resembles one of those toy bubble guns + the freaking background/Billy’s inner voice that taunts him with its IWISHIWASSOMEONEBETTER + the earnest look at teen suicides (especially among LGBT+ teens) which is kind of related to the cartoony gun because the writer here is showing us real kids with real problems in an unreal setting where alien shapeshifters are basically the bigger than life equivalent of some awfully real teenage issues and the pseudo-toy gun makes it all seem so easy and superhero-y and superficial, but the look on Billy’s face says otherwise giving the whole scene such pathos that most big action scenes in most superhero comic books can only DREAM OF.
Kieron Gillen you beautiful bastard.

Like we needed more proof that Gillen is fanservicing the tumblr crowd like there’s no tomorrow.
SO MANY FEELS.
But this makes me think of how Gail Simone sees the tumblr fans as the tasteful cinephile of the comic book community, who goes for precious gems like Miller’s Batgirl or X23 or her own Secret Six, rather than the big blockbusters for the popcorn eating crowds that are the general Cap fights Iron Man and Wonder Woman has big boobs fuck yeah fans.
Does this mean that stuff like YA and Hawkeye are destined to be short, memorable runs and will be canceled while crap like Superior Spider-Man, Avengers Arena and Cyclops vs. the World still go on and on (not to mention 99% of what DC is currently doing)? I would look at the sales but numbers hurt my brain.
Here’s to a long, long run mr. Gillen.
