Because there's a certain strand of nonsense that seems increasingly out of place over on the old Workblog.

ramcculloch asked: Hello there, Ryan from Calgary. Bleeding Cool says you'll be at the Calgary Comic Expo but the Expo's website doesn't list you. Will you be here? If so I will need to find a ticket so I can grace your presence. Thank you, you are a good writer.

Thank you.

Yes, I will be there. It’s a last minute announcement, but should be fun. I’ll be around the Avatar booth, basically. If I have any other schedule, I’ll blog it here or my main workblog.

This will be fun! I’ve never done a Canadian con.

But I came to this conclusion a long time ago: “Selling out” means there are no more tickets at Madison Square Garden.

d-pole asked: You write a cracking English lass Psylocke. Ask Marvel for a mini involving Psylocke,Captain Britain,London and a tea break being horribly interrupted. Also hope to see you back at D.I.C.E this year :D

Occasionally you get an in on a character which is sophisticated, deep and full of pretty much everything that exists in life.

At other times, you get “I’M A BLOODY NINJA!” 

Whatever works, works.

Question with 32 notes

tophercarlson asked: Which of the Young Avengers characters do you think deserves a solo ongoing?

"Deserve" is a loaded word, innit?

I think some of them are more aligned for solo adventures than others. Kate, and she pretty much already has. Loki, and he has. America. Noh-Varr.

The others the team dynamic seem pretty deeply engrained, though that just takes someone with vision to get it and do it. 30 issues of Loki-as-hero isn’t exactly a traditional sell, and just required someone (i.e. Me) to see something.

(i.e. this is clearly my problem. I’m not entirely sure what - say - a Billy/Teddy solo book would look like, apart from pretty close to “Young Avengers.”)

Cultivating an aura of contempt for the rest of the universe and a BFF to share your loathing with.

Also, perfect your hair.

dannykat asked: Uber question: Can Ubers only eat that paste? Or can they eat normal food as well?

I would say from what we’ve seen that it’s necessary for them to eat the paste - and if it’s not necessary, people are keeping them pretty tight to it. Maybe they can eat proper food, and they’re just being lied to?

the right stuff

LIFE WITHOUT BUILDINGS are pretty well cemented in the “00s bands who should have been a phenomenon and never were” position by now, but that doesn’t make them any less astounding.
