Almost Human!!! Oh my I really, REALLY loved this show, I was so sad when fox cancelled it… but there’s still hope! there have been many shows cancelled that came back sometime/years later.
What can I say, I`m an optimist ;)
This was a practice of magazine design and illustration.
This whole ordeal started with this post where an Anon asked Christian “ Do you think storm can be an omega level mutant and if so how do you think she would become one? ”
Then this happened..An Anon sent :Christian this…
"storm is a glass cannon, she can be knocked out by people with human level strength. and her against silver surfer was PSI. she is underrated but also overrated in power. her stans will say she can solo all the x-men smh"
Then an Anon sent me this:
storms power levels have nothing to do with her being a woman or her color, but way to take something completely out of context and turn it into a race issue. there are a lot of powerful mutants that aren’t omega, or shouldnt be considered omega ie iceman
Is Storm awesome? Does she deserve her own solo series which I hope all of you are buying and reading? Is Storm worthy of being an Omega level mutant in the Marvel Universe?
I was wondering why my name popped up on my own dash again.
Everyone, go show Sasha some love! I fell in love with her art after a Static post here on Tumblr led me to a Power Rangers image posted to DeviantArt (both included above), and when I saw her Connor Hawke, I was hooked!
Her bodies, her faces, and her attention to detail have me hooked. I hope you will be too!
that day he learned that he didn’t even know how to kill himself. without even trying, his body grew lighter, his bones grew soft, he almost bounced off the pavement. he almost laughed instead of crying when he realized he wasn’t even hurt. and strangely, he was glad to still be alive.
THEY DIDN’T DESERVE HIM.
Everyone! Listen to This Speech by Gene Luen Yang on Diversity and Comics Right Now
On Saturday, writer Gene Luen Yang gave a speech at the National Book Festival where he discussed the issue of diversity in publishing and specifically in comics and it is amazing.
The award-winning Boxers and Saints author began his speech by discussing the importance of Dwayne McDuffie to his own entrance in to comics and to comics overall. McDuffie, of course, fought for diversity in comics ultimately creating his own comic company so he could see people like himself in comics.
Yang talks about the importance of that company, Milestone, because the character Xombi was also an Asian American male.
But he also addresses the issue of diversity in terms of the writer’s responsibility and overcoming the fear of “not getting it right” and suffering the wrath of the Internet.
I strongly recommend that every writer or potential writer in comics listen to this speech. I strongly recommend that every editor and publisher in comics listen to this speech. I strongly recommend every comic reader listen to this speech. And I strongly hope that every person who diminishes diversity in comics with snide remarks listens to this speech.
