June 1, 2012 10:33 pm Thanks, Paul, for the quick response and for the commitment to giving credit where it's due.
June 1, 2012 8:51 pm (That word should have been "extend," not "understand" -- my fault for hitting submit too quickly.)
June 1, 2012 8:50 pm The "internet" didn't produce this art -- individual artists did. Considering iFanboy is always so conscientious about crediting the artists of sketches and webcomics, I don't understand why the policy doesn't understand to other fanworks, just because someone has deemed them "weird" and posted them as mockable spectacle.
May 22, 2012 1:33 pm What I want to know is, why are Anole and Rockslide making eyes at each other?
February 7, 2012 7:11 pm Just wanted to mention that I really appreciate the attempts to be a bit more careful regarding gender-neutral language in these podcasts. I found the first few episodes a bit disheartening in the way they seemed to unconsciously imply that only men would be involved in this industry. People of all genders can use this kind of advice. :)
January 24, 2012 7:23 pm I'm not sure what's so bad about Living Lightning. A sparse record of past activities only means the character hasn't been given a fair chance. All it would take is one good writer to give him a decent story. And considering how many Avengers are straight white dudes, I'm really hesitant to just throw away a gay Latino character.
August 24, 2011 10:44 pm It is. If you go back to that page in Enemy of the State, Guedes was redrawing Romita's scene exactly. That was the intention. :)
August 24, 2011 5:48 pm I wrote the recap that's in this issue, but I also did the ballooning (laying out a guideline for the letterer), so I read this script awhile ago, during my summer internship. After I was done, I actually had to sit back and take a few deep breaths because I was so viscerally horrified, and then I immediately went to tell the editors how effective it was. It's a truly brilliant issue, and Jason Aaron deserves all the credit you've given him here. The final moment with the young boy at the end, too, is a secondary gut punch -- in an issue that almost didn't need anything other than Logan's devastation -- and it's a credit to Aaron's talent that he pulls off both.
June 20, 2011 10:35 pm This podcast really did pique my interest in this story, but i have to ask: what, exactly, is so "cheesy and weird" about targeting comics at teenage girls? And why is a mandate of writing for that audience considered something oppressive that creators feel the need to cast aside?
