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”
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
