Ultimate X-Men should have ended at #93. The team was back together. Jean went all Phoenix. Everyone was happy.
Instead they decided to go on and give us drug addicted X-Men, like almost everyone dying in Ultimatum, and then another evil Jean Grey story a the end of the second Vol.
It should have ended when BKV left the book. Kirkman…he had some interesting ideas, but the execution was quite WTF. Especially what he did to Nightcrawler.
I remember when Kirkman was announced as the new writer in Ultimate X-Men, and I was SO excited because I was at the high of my “Walking Dead” excitement. And, wow, it turned out to be SUCH a mess.
BKW was the high point of this series, his run was pretty much flawless AND had some of the prettiest Stuart Immonen art EVER.
DC Comics Batwoman Bishoujo Statue
I want to buy this almost as much as I want that Cliff Chiang designed Wonder Woman statue. Of course i’ll buy both, and that is why I’m always broke.
Incidentally, I’m shocked and thrilled that Kotobukiya managed to make a Batwoman statue that doesn’t borderlines on hentai. Also, the Kathy Kane head is ADORABLE.
Being an X-man means a lot to me…but it doesn’t always agree with me
This page destroyed me when I read it for the first time and it still does
I remember when I first read this sequence, when it originally came out, and I IMMEDIATELY got a flashback to when I first read Kitty’s debut in X-Men, so many years ago.
And I was like, “Damn. OF COURSE she would feel that way about Emma.”
No one is more excited about Batgirl’s new costume than Kara.

There are no words to express how much I adore this!
Harley’s face on the last panel is giving me LIFE!
Can we sit the DC editors through a week-long course on how awesome and adorable this is? Can we get Mike Maihack and Yale Stewart as DC’s new EiCs? Please?
Depois de alguns meses de hype e teasers tímidos, minha próxima HQ pela Fictícia foi oficialmente anunciada: trata-se do primeiro volume de Mayara & Annabelle, criado e ilustrado pelo Talles Rodrigues, com quem eu trabalhei n’O Clube dos Monstros dos Bairros Distantes. É,…
Ok, this looks way too cool.
My friend Pablo Casado (one of the authors of the awesome Sabor Brasilis), has a new comic on the oven.
Mayara & Anabelle will come out here in Brazil in December, and the sinopsis reads (translation mine):
"Thanks to investigating too deep into things she shouldn’t have, Combat Assistant Tecnician Mayara has been transfered from the Uncommon Activities Secretariat of the State of São Paulo to the Secretariat branch in the state of Ceará.
Magic Technical Assistant Anabelle is none too happy about it. Along with the Secretary himself, she was the only employee of the Ceará Secretariat, and all she wanted was an intern to fill her activities reports.
Now she must share the small office in Fortaleza (Ceará’s capital city) with a ninja-wannabe transfer.
They will have to put their differences aside and work together, though, if they hope to defeat a menace that has not been seen in the streets of Fortaleza for over 20 years, and that has just resurfaced.”
Can’t wait for it!
So, DC is going to release a statue of the Cliff Chiang design for Wonder Woman.
I’m going to buy this so fast it’s not even funny.
I got the same feeling when Jeph Loeb used the Wendigo in a similar way on his Hulk Run. Was buying only for Art Adams’ art. At least they acknowledge, on panel, that the curse doesn’t work that way.
Right, but that does…
That’s a really cool sequence, i just might have to check it out!
Another cool Wendigo in comics is the one in Charlie Adlard and Mathieu Missoffe’s "Curse of the Wendigo". Italian Western comic “Magic Wind” also had a really great story with a downright CREEPY wendigo in one of its earlier issues.
But, hands down, my favourite take on the Wendigo is Antonia Bird's awesome 1999 movie, "Ravenous". It has just the right ammount of weird, creepy and darkhumour, Can’t recommend it enough.
A few sketches I did during the weekend in between actual serious work. Had a TON of fun with these, tried the Tombo Markers, the watercolour pencils and even ballpoint pen.
I was organizing some old files, and came across this Scarlet Witch redesign I did a few years ago (as a matter of fact, expect some old drawings of mine to pop up around here every once in a while). I LOVE the character, and the way she’s been treated by Marvel over the last few years is really, really disheartening.
This is one I was really proud of after I finished - It was a rare case where I liked the redesign, the actual drawing, the body and facial expressions and even, at the time, the coloring. I’m not feeling the love for the coloring right now, though. :)
Reblogging myself, because I was just reading a few of the X-Men comics circa “Avengers vs. X-Men”, which led me to the actual limited series which led to me thinking about House of M and OHMYGOD how they screwed Wanda up!
I put that part of the text in bold because I posted this in freaking 2011, and it still hasn’t changed.
Aw…happy anniversary, you two! Cake can wait until you’re together again.
Thanks a lot, guys! And the ammount of cake will be EPIC!
Drew this to celebrate the 9th anniversary of my relationship with my Hubby.
We’re spending it apart this year, but we really got the long-distance thing down. Won’t be happening next year, thoug. The Big 10th will be something else!
The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia.
It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.
That is the most expressive and gelatinous cat I have ever seen.
OMG that face.
HAD to reblog because I’m sure northstarfan will love this guy.
Some tweets calling Ubisoft out on their bullshit.
Oh, gimme a break. “Designing chicks is HARD, dude.”
I’m not a gamer, but I’ve always liked the imagery of Assassin’s Creed, and was curious to at least try out the novels based on the games.
Guess I’ll have to look for some other non-douchey franchise to spend money on.
