1. a-light-chance-of-rain asked: Well here's an idea: pick up a goddamned and write one yourself. Be part of the solution instead of sitting around doing fuck all.

    rosalarian:

    Dude, you realize I’ve written several books, right? Seven series, thousands of pages. Literally, multiple thousands of pages. Four of those series are in book form, as well as some in anthologies published by other people. Total, there are 13 graphic novels that I wrote and drew or contributed to, and that’s not counting single issue comics or illustrated prose stories or other sundry illustrations (I keep updating this section as I remember more of the things I’ve written. There are enough to lose track.) All about people who are not straight white dudes. I will be the first to admit my track record on characters of color could be way better, as well as trans and disabled characters, and a whole bunch of other types of people, and I’m working on it. I’m actively working on it. In the books that I am writing. And publishing.

    I feel kind of silly pulling out the “don’t you know who I am?” thing but… you obviously don’t know who I am or what I do. And you look reeeeeeeeeeeeeally silly right now.

Alexandra reveals she still has her magic in ‘Betty and Veronica 271.’ Sabrina, Salem, and her aunts must’ve scared Alexandra and Sebastian pretty badly at one point which caused them to cool it with the magic hijinks. They both look pretty terrified which speaks volumes considering Alexandra is pretty fearless in both the comics and cartoons.
Also, even though Val is pretty OOC in this issue, I really loved how the writer(s) understood Alexandra’s character and the fact that SEBASTIAN IS IN THIS. It makes me so happy.

Shortly after completing the serialization of Sergio Ponchione's surreal masterpiece Grotesque, we came across portions of his project DKW: Ditko Kirby Wood on his blog, and we immediately knew we had to bring this phenomenal work to American readers. A loving tribute to Steve, Jack, and Wally, DKW tells their stories with astounding, eye-popping, trippy visuals that transport you inside the imaginations of these three master comics-makers.
We’re pleased to present DKW as a one-shot comic book coming to comic shops this July! Look for it in the May issue of Previews, out in two weeks, and demand it from your local retailer.

  11. Anonymous asked: Brian why does it seem that there is such hostility towards woman creators in the comic industry?

    brianmichaelbendis:

    Because no matter what we do there will always be unevolved cowards among us. and the anonymity of the Internet brings out some people’s worst instincts.

      please read my words carefully… I said some people. and its only some people. but those people seem really awful.

     truthfully, it is not just female creators. a lot of people take weird, hateful shit from weird people.  truthfully, honestly, a lot of us get showered with lovely thoughts all day as well but the sickening stuff stands out because… it just does.

    but I think that all of us would hope that we would have gotten to a place as a society where our mothers, sisters, daughters and wives could go on the Internet without having to worry about being called a whore for having an opinion.

     I think what rattles most of us in the comic book community is the fact that someone could read a bunch of comic books, with very specific, simple moral themes with highly moral characters, fighting the fight for good, and COMPLETELY MISS THE POINT.

     you know what Capt. America would never do? he would never go on the Internet anonymously and slam anyone.

    the point of the stories, the good ones :-), is to show us what we could be. not to waddle around in the minutia of comic book science but to enjoy a world were someone is fighting the good fight.  a world we hope we could live in one day.

     just because you are posting anonymously doesn’t mean that those thoughts are not yours.  it is not role-play, it is not a character, that is who you really are.  that is the energy you are putting out in the world. this isn’t some mask you are hiding behind… this is who you REALLY ARE.

    and if who you really are is a bully, anonymous or not, I truly feel bad for you. I really do. I feel bad that you’re hurting so badly that you think you need to do this.  

    but there is NO excuse to attempt to punish others under the cloak of anonymous. none.

    Check out that awesome googly-eyed velociraptor! He’s a giant industrial origami project called KitRex and he was created by Lehigh University grad student Lisa Glover.

    "KitRex began as a homework assignment where I was asked to research a manufacturing process and demonstrate it in a unique way. I decided to research Industrial Origami, and over the course of 50 hours I designed, cut, and built a wearable 15-ft long velociraptor out of cardboard. I took him to a costume ball, and when I tromped into the room, literally everyone stopped to stare. He was the star of the evening, and everyone wanted one. I knew I had to do something."

    Lisa then started (and successfully funded) a KitRex Kickstarter project to help her mass-produce an adorable 3-foot-long KitRex (since most people don’t have the space for a 15-ft paper dino). After months of prototyping and testing with kids between 8 - 12 years old, the final KitRex was born as a bristol board model that’s easily flat-packed and shipped anywhere (But you have to add your own googly eyes). A few lucky Kickstarter contributors were rewarded with giant 15-foot KitRexes of their very own.

    Lisa isn’t quite ready to ship the KitRex, but for the time being you can click here to download a free pattern that fits on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper. It’ll be like playing with a dino hatchling.

    This obviously makes me think of a beloved Dumbing of Age character (although she’d probably add feathers).
