Have you ever dropped a series that you liked reading just because you didn't like the art?

Not that I can outright think of. I think the closest to this was that I stopped reading Batwoman after the Wonder Woman arc because Trevor McCarthy was taking over the art. It wasn’t that I don’t like his work, because I’m a big fan, but because the writing wasn’t as good when it wasn’t JH Williams doing the art. Like his art complements his own writing. 

That’s really shitty of them to do to you. :c haven’t you been working there for a while? I feel like because you’ve been there, they should at least be forward with you about their intentions— showing you respect is the least they should do.

I’ve worked for the company for over five and a half years, but moved to this new place in January because we moved from Houston to Austin, so I haven’t been here as long

But- I don’t understand the lack of respect I get. The managers don’t seem to like me and I actually asked about getting more hours last week and yet I got even less this week. It’s not too difficult for me to find people to give me their shifts, but I shouldn’t need to fight to get those shifts. 

My big issue is that they hired way too many people for the summer and try to give them hours too, but they’re all kids who don’t have stuff to worry about. I’m an adult. I have bills and things I need to pay for. So I need the hours much more than most of my coworkers actually do, yet they try to cater towards them anyway. Back at my old theater the people who needed hours got the hours. The ones who didn’t got less. I got the hours I needed over there because they knew I had a wedding coming up and needed the money for that. Over here they tell me “oh your wife has a job and you have a second job so you don’t need it as much” Ummm excuse me I think I know what i need better than you do.

I totally called him out and he was noticeably flustered and then told me i’d “get more than some feelings hurt” and I told him “I’m sorry you have to live a life so full of hate. Bless you.”

Boom.

Holy shit Meghan posted something on Facebook about enjoying going to the Beyonce concert and one of her family members came in there and started shitting on her saying that Beyonce is a devil worshipper and that there are “signs” and shit.

I’m convinced that my managers at the theater want me out of there. They keep cutting my hours and this week I’ve got two days, which is exactly half what I need to have. It’s really depressing me not only because I have to fight to make the money I need for us to be well off, but because I feel unwanted.

The majority of Texas towns are the types of places we big city folk say there’s only two things to do in- eat and fuck. It also happens that lots of them are religious towns who refuse to teach people that birth control even exists.

Canonical admission that Dickbats happened?
Yes, yes good sirs or madams
This is my jam
(from Secret Origins #4, great art by Ian Bertram)


The Robin Rises Omega one-shot had an intro that was canonical admission that ALL of Morrison’s Batman run happened. Including Final Crisis and Return of Bruce Wayne.

I dunno about you folks, but I’m pretty excited to see Sam Wilson (formerly The Falcon) step in to Captain America’s buccaneer boots :)

Here are a couple sketches from the aborted “Bat-Man” project with Azzarello.  Initially conceived as a First Wave title, I wanted Robin to be the son of Wu Cheng from the Blackhawks — fuck you, Chop Chop — sent to be raised in the US by Bruce Wayne. Get some pulp in that juice.

I don’t want to get too excited before anything’s confirmed, but I’m getting pretty jazzed over the possibility of The Rock playing Captain Marvel.

I wish “young adult authors” were yknow, actual young adults in the 18-25 age range at least and not old dudes writing about the high school girl they never got to fuck with and you know who I’m talking about

I FINALLY ordered this book last night. I started on Bruce Jones’ Incredible Hulk run quite a while ago, and worked through it slowly, but I was never able to find the eighth and final volume for a price that I thought would be worth it. I got an Amazon giftcard for my birthday, and kept debating what to spend it on and finally remembered that I still needed this book, and there just so happened to be a new copy on sale on Amazon for just $20, which is about $10-$15 less than it typically is. 
So I’m excited to be able to finish that run, and then maybe I’ll grab the other two volumes that are between this and Prelude to Planet Hulk- Tempest Fugit and House of M.

Now I’m working through KSD’s Avengers Assemble run. I didn’t really enjoy her Captain Marvel stuff, so we’ll see how this goes…

I’m on the final arc of the series now. It’s been good, but not great. Kind of feel bad because I can see that she never really got to do much with the title, at least on her own without editorial interference. She got to do two arcs in the first five issues which were both fun, and then Al Ewing jumped on because of the Age of Ultron tie-ins, then two issues were tied into her Enemy Within crossover with Captain Marvel, and then we get three issues that tie in to Infinity, one of which is also written by Ewing. Now with the final arc she’s cowriting with Warren Ellis. So that means there’s really only the five issues that she got to write on her own without having to tie into anything else or having a co-writer. We’ll see what I think of these last five issues soon enough now…

Well finished that last arc, and once again it suffered from being an event ti-in since three of the five issues were part of Inhumanity. Overall the series was a fun read, but honestly not something I’d outright recommend to someone wanting to read a good Avengers series. At best I’d give it an 8/10 because she definitely writes the characters well, and gives them all fun voices, but the story was a bit lacking and didn’t have much gravity to it. I’m pretty sure this was also my issue with Captain Marvel. In the end I just didn’t feel like what I read really mattered in the big picture of things. Maybe I’m just not a fan of KSD? But I did enjoy her Osborn mini-series from a while back so… I don’t know.
