ivydoomkitty was the first cosplayer I ever paid attention to. 8 of my friends told me I should check her out, all in a 48 hour period. This was when her Rocketeer photo shoot was making the rounds.

Her love for this stuff is infectious. She is a geeky gal having lots of fun with it. She makes pastries. Her FB feed is entertaining. Her costumes are awesome. Not going to lie, being all get-out gorgeous helped too.

Should always move to areas that have freezing winters. Makes it easier to maneuver around them and easier to scavenge, if anyone is ballsy enough to do that during cold temperatures. Plus, could use the snow as protection by building a wall of snow or build traps around the place by icing the ground with water and watching the zombies slip and fall.

Totally. I normally stay away from cold temperatures, but I would be heading to the coldest place I could get to, if zombies ever came.

Plus move the hell away from a city, those will be zombie hatcheries. That leaves out most, if not all Costcos.


If zombies ever attack just go to Costco… they have concrete walls… years of foods and supplies… and best of all the zombies can’t get in without a Costco membership card

There will be some dumbass that lets them in. It might be because they think it is finally safe. They may be making a power play to remove the leader. You also have to figure in freak earthquakes, and other natural disasters that will give the zombies an open door. Either way, they won’t have to figure out how to get in. I have seen the movies.

This is the only time I would recommend moving to Alaska. Zombies will freeze, and you can shatter them.


And Cesar Did Fall

This was my introduction to Brian Bendis & Alex Maleev. I fell in love immediately with their work. Bendis’ way of writing dialogue had me hearing the character’s voices in my head from the start. Maleev was using art techniques that I had previously been unaware of, and creating a new style of art for mainstream comics.

This was right at the height of my favorite era of Marvel. When Joe Quesada & Bill Jemas were making magic happen at the House of Ideas.



Alex Maleev posted this piece of work for his upcoming Batman story on Facebook.

As some of you may have noticed, alexmaleev is now on tumblr. You should follow him if you like awesome art. Hopefully he also adds a healthy dose of personality. He was one of my favorite creators to post on the Bendis Boards. I always had a good time with our back and forth.

We used to joke with each other about our particular taste in women. I like them thick, he likes them skinny. It was all good natured ribbing. I would get to meet him at NYCC 2011. I introduced myself as the guy who likes fat chicks, and he chuckled as he recognized who I was. He then told me they have a saying in Bulgaria. “Every train has its riders”.

I also got him to draw this way cool picture of Daredevil on the inside cover of my Daredevil Omniibus


If I remember correctly, Brian Michael Bendis recommended you launch the Cyclops series. Is that accurate? If so, could his recommendation & Mike Marts as the new X-Men editor possibly get you writing (adjectiveless) X-Men? Do you have any interest in that?


That is correct. brianmichaelbendis suggested me to editor Nick Lowe, and Nick gave me a call, and that was how that ball began rolling.

X-Men is a Marvel crown jewel. I would love to write them, without question, but there’s a long line of writers better positioned, and arguably better-suited, to that job than I. If the PTB did, for some reason, make the offer, it would be very hard to refuse, I have to admit.

I hope your are on the short list. I have thoroughly enjoyed the adventures of young Scott Summers

If female fans are dismissed more easily, then so are their interests, their spaces, and their primary forms of engagement. Or, said differently, gender discrimination occurs on the level of the fan, the fan activity, and the fannish investment. There is a ready truism that enthusiasm for typically male fan objects, such as sports and even music, are generally accepted whereas female fan interests are much more readily mocked. Likewise, fangirls are mocked as is fan fiction, an activity more commonly ascribed to females. More than that, affect and forms of fannish investment get policed along gender lines, so that obsessively collecting comic books or speaking Klingon is more acceptable within and outside of fandom than creating fan vids or cosplaying. Even the same behavior gets read differently when women do it: sexualizing celebrities, for example, is accepted and expected among men but gets quickly read as inappropriate when done by women.

"He has been wondering why Charles never calls him anymore…" I think this was pretty douchy and not funny because you yourself stated at the beginning of the years that we would be seeing him soon , now its close to the end of the year and when I ask almost the same question , I get a joke , which is more of a deflection , you know you could have just skipped my question but you thinking it was wise to joke it was makes the answer douchy. I'm a paying customer month in month out




I’m sorry that you’re so touchy on this subject.

When Nick Lowe was editing the X-MEN titles, they were planning a Juggernaut story. And when that changed and Mike Marts took over the X-MEN titles, those plans changed. I expect they’ll still get to that Juggernaut story at soem point, but exactly when I could not tell you.

I’ll pile some more truth on Tom. SORRY YOU ARE UPSET, ANONYMOUS POSTER! Jason Aaron had planned to bring Juggernaut back in AMAZING X-MEN, but heeded the call of Star Wars and had to leave the book. Rather than saddle the new creative team with a story they weren’t invested in, the plans went by the wayside. These things happen! 


1895 - The Yellow Kid

In 1895, Richard F. Outcault created The Yellow Kid, a bald, snaggle-toothed boy who wore an oversized yellow nightshirt and hung around in a slum alley typical of certain areas of squalor that existed in late 19th-century New York City. The comic became one of the first Sunday comic strips in American newspaper, where it’s use of word balloons influenced the style in comics to come after it.
