That’s kind of always the problem with Bendis though, isn’t it? I mean, what took me ages in getting into his books was that they were never the book he advertised, in part because his commitment to meandering and to comics as an ever-present weekly event tends to keep his…
the mu was such an interesting place after avx like ooohhh scott’s a revolutionary and on the wrong side of the law!! powers broken!! how will he and the others deal with xavier’s death??!! exciting!! the original x-men brought into the future to see what has become of them!!…
If I got my hands on Superboy and the Gen13 characters, I can guarantee it’d be the spiritual successor to Superboy and the Ravers.
what is this comic?!

Thumping Industrial Hip-Hop with a very good, very NSFW video. Seriously, don’t watch this at work unless you work with penises.
Most artists take their invitation to DJ for Boiler Room very seriously. Then there is Grimes. The Boiler Room hit Ibiza today for a party at influential electronic artist/DJ Richie Hawtin’s house, and Grimes was present to provide music for an hour. Instead of digging for some deep cuts and giving the people what they want, Grimes took a very different route.
Her set included Taylor Swift, Daddy Yankee, Venga Boys, and, of course, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You.” She played the music off of her iPod.
God bless Grimes.
Grimes is doing the good work
Released yesterday, ZERO Vol. 2: AT THE HEART OF IT ALL is the latest paperback collection of ZERO, collecting issued 6–10 in one volume and continues the story of Edward Zero, who now stands at a crossroad in his story.
Unlike the single issues the publication design of volume 2 continues the trade dress established on volume 1, building a consistent collection look, which contrasts with the design fluidity of the single issues. You’ll notice where the volume 1 cover was torn to shreds, volume 2 suffers from a bad signal.
Inside you’ll discover the same things as before: new chapter page designs, and a gallery section with all the design you perhaps had missed before.
You can find ZERO Vol. 2: AT THE HEART OF IT ALL in your local comic and book stores.No comic book store nearby (see here), or simply prefer a different option, you can buy it at Amazon (US / CA / UK). If you prefer your comics in digital format, you can get it directly at Image Comics online, or from Comixology (US / UK).

Still reading at least once a day about hateful-ass game nonsense. Still. These people are still not done with their incoherent nonsense— every day it’s a fresh set of crazy-person MSPaint explanations why they’re right. I lose an hour to it a day at least because there’s something about it I just can’t… There’s just this weird overlap of stuff about it I take personal just from experiences I’ve had, and deeply fascinating utterly-psycho behavior and now this whole thing where they’re all claiming to all be bullied minorities (these weird basically non-sequitur arguments) and actually some really interesting corners about what it means to write about entertainment and what “ethics” means in that context, and that weird line between fans and fanboys (fans are the most lovable and wrongly disrespected and giving people, but hoo-boy fanboys/gamers/whatever… That is some smelly milk) and just… I’ve gotten pretty sucked in.
The latest is (a) animes are now going to boycott the New Yorker over a Simon Parkin article (Simon Parkin being basically the best game writer out there, now, at least to me) that took the position that harassing women with violent threats is wrong— take that David Remnick! The New Yorker just lost the animes! (b) This was never about all the many women they previously harassed with endless misogynistic insults— now it’s about Leigh Alexander, who they’re going to harass with endless misogynistic insults…?(c) Sarkeesian got doxxed again, which I guess is a bad thing, the doxxing…? (All the new words!). (d) If Zoe Quinn says anything about her absolutely horrifying harassment and mistreatment by the animes, she is then harassed by dozens and dozens of animes tweeting “shut up we don’t even care about you it’s not about you”, which the animes tweet at her basically several billion times a day, completely unironically. (e) The creep boyfriend who started all this nonsense now tweets unironically about all the women who flirt with him now online, thanks to all of this! The guy who made a game about punching a girl in the face now regularly describes himself as a victim of the internet! Wee! And (f) after days of hearing these animes scream that the women being attack “deserve” it because they “doxxed” a trans person, here’s Jeopardy champion/villain Arthur Chu explaining quote “nope— that trans person is just a person who pretends to be a woman to scam them into sending him naked photos." (??) I don’t know a lot about trans issues but … that sounds, like, not o-kay…?
“The animes were convinced that Adam Baldwin would help them avenge the doxxing of a fake-trans person,” me telling the story of 2014 when I’m old and gray. All of those words are in a sentence together!!!
Actual responses to Chufrom the animes include “anyone that cares about which diversity box he belongs in is missing the point entirely”, “bigoted… the most venemous”, “you are despicable”, “intellectually dishonest”, “I’m starting to think they believe everyone outside their clique isn’t human”, “get some morals”, and “why does it matter?”
The Nightcrawler, also called the Fresno Alien, is a mysterious new cryptid that has so far made two appearances, both in Fresno, California. On both sightings, it was only seen in video footage. It appears to be a relatively short creature (approx. 4 feet in height). It is an extremely thin, white humanoid with no discernable arms. It also appears to be wearing a white gown or cloak of some sort. The Nightcrawler is most known for being one of the two featured video cases on the second episode of Syfy’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files. X
for some reason the pants alien scares the fucking holiness out of me
I don’t know why, it’s fuckin’ pants, but it just is so creepy
