i’m reading marvels, which is excellent btw, and there’s a foreward by busiek - he’s talking about how he didn’t grow up reading marvel, really, he had to go and read the back issues, and figure out how it all fit together

And one thing I continually discovered is this: there’s no substitute for hands-on research. I had all the fancy artistic goals. I knew my themes. I knew the grand scope of the stories I wanted to tell. But without the details, it never could have come through the way it did.

this is one of the major reasons this book is so, so good

why aren’t all comic writers like this

the most aggravating fans are the ones that become huge fans of a villainous character but just can’t handle the fact that the villainous character does villainous things and instead said fans invent a million assbackwards headcanons about how the villain is TOTALLY not a villain at all and is some tragic blob where nothing is their fault even up to and including murder and genocide

i am just so baffled by this

you mean loki. u can say loki

idk i think you can pretty much insert “attractive white dude”

I’m still mad that Cassie Lang is dead.

And Rikki Barnes.

And Laurie Collins.

The X-men comics were literally a metaphor for racism and xenophobia. This is meaningful because it is meant to be powerful and an accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control.

On the one hand, this is true, and it was a nice scene for Kurt.

On the other hand, Ororo Munroe should not need this explained to her.

It just - it just irks me that, in the comics, we have a black woman who overflows with understanding and compassion and wisdom, despite all she’s seen, despite her own missteps and mistakes. 

But in the movies, she needs to learn this from a white dude. (Yes, Kurt is blue, and in-universe experiences violent discrimination, but that’s a white actor underneath that body paint.)

Linda and Ariella.. from Peter David’s Supergirl storyline “Many happy returns.”. Ariella is the daughter of Linda Danvers (A Metahuman version of Supergirl who isn’t related by blood*) and the Silver Age version of Superman. the original line art was produced for an auction to benefit Peter, who recently suffered a stroke but is on the mend.
Pencils, inks and colors by me, with a little help from my wife (and critique) Karine Igle.
*She was human, got superpowers, became Supergirl.

lol if you think most people using “brotp” are considering aromantic representation

you know what is like - an ironclad narrative kink for me, when it comes to romantic relationships 

"will you kill me if i become a monster" "yes, absolutely"

thank you for illuminating this for me, roy/hawkeye
