Still pretty proud of my response to this.
I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now.
Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.”
Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”
And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”
If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it.
I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today?
I think my selfie problem is getting out of hand..
This deserves at least a thousand notes !!

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost
Reading this was so satisfying woah
Hey everyone! A while ago I was commissioned to do some guest artist cover illustrations for a new comic called Veiled & Vile created by Sam Lenn.
The comic covers the story explores the lives of several incarcerated female super villains that have to work together to survive as well as escape. Throughout the comics it will go in depth about the characters’ complex pasts of super villainy as they try to break out.
The comic is available for pre-order HERE
And you can go to Sam’s tumblr HERE for the process of creating his comic and also get updates on the next issues and when my cover illustrations will be making their debut
….this looks like Orange is the New Black but with powers…
