Laura’s Delightful Damnation
Some background info on the above: This is basically fan-art and fan-fic rolled into one. It’s from the brilliant wicdiv (The Wicked + The Divine) books. It’s a fantastic piece of work so far and I highly recommend it! kierongillen and mckelvie do an astoundingly brilliant job and I certainly cannot get enough of it.

Developers and writers alike want games about more things, and games by more people. We want — and we are getting, and will keep getting — tragicomedy, vignette, musicals, dream worlds, family tales, ethnographies, abstract art. We will get this, because we’re creating culture now. We are refusing to let anyone feel prohibited from participating.

“Gamer” isn’t just a dated demographic label that most people increasingly prefer not to use. Gamers are over. That’s why they’re so mad.

Leigh killing it. Read the rest

JACK KIRBY IN CONTEXT

Two years ago, Jack Kirby’s granddaughter Jillian launched Kirby4Heroes, a campaign to raise funds for the Hero Initiative, which helps comic artists in need. On the Kirby4Heroes Facebook page, Jillian posted several vintage pictures of her grandfather.

I thought it would be illuminating to provide a guide to what Kirby was working on at the time of each photo. Sometimes we forget that personal and professional lives don’t exist in vacuums.

(1) July 1941: Only months after the introduction of Captain America, Kirby and Joe Simon would soon leave Timely Comics. Jack and Roz Kirby spent a day at Brighton Beach.

(2) May 1961: Fantastic Four #1 was in development. It would hit newsstands on August 8. Bar Mitzvah for Neal Kirby.

(3) December 1963. Avengers #4, featuring the return of Captain America, was on newsstands. Tales of Suspense #52, featuring the first appearance of Black Widow, was at the printers. The growing Kirby family celebrated Hanukkah.

(4) July 1965: The debuts of the Inhumans (in Fantastic Four) and the Sentinels (in X-Men) were in production.

(5) June 1966: The fully-Kirby-scripted S.H.I.E.L.D. story in Strange Tales #148 hit newsstands (along with all of these). “I [did] a little editing later, but it was [Jack’s] story.” Lee said in an interview. Neal Kirby graduated.

On July 12, after Joe Simon began efforts to claim sole ownership of Captain America, Martin Goodman persuaded Jack Kirby to sign a deposition stating that Captain America, and all the work he’d done for Timely in the early 40s, was done with the understanding that it “belonged to Timely.”

We need beauty. But what right did I have, I kept asking myself, in a world so full of hell?

In his poem, “A Brief for the Defense,” Jack Gilbert attempted an answer. “We must risk delight,” he wrote. Life contains everything. Tear gas in Ferguson. Books read on the grass. Foley’s murder. Dancing in New Orleans, till sunrise blots the stars. We’re meat—fragile and finite. But joy is survival.
Molly got me tearing up with this piece.

I scanned and cleaned up the drawing I posted a photo of on Instagram earlier. I’ll probably make this into a nice A3 print for Thought Bubble! This drawing is pretty heavily based on Alexis Krauss’ awesome style.

Love this one.

‘Sat in Your Lap’ by Kate BushHave been on a Kate Bush Sat-in-your-lap loop for the last few days. Painful to not be reading the reviews, but I don’t want spoilers.

fantastica-sff said: The recent WicDiv review you reblogged mentioned the possibility that Badb might be partially inspired by Helena from Orphan Black. Have you or Jamie been watching this show?

Jamie’s a big fan. I’ve never watched it.

(It’s on the list though)

Welcome to Wicked Intervention, Multiversity’s monthly annotation for Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson’s “The Wicked + The Divine”. This week, we experience theatre, puns, and a startling amount of violence. Sounds like me after my second drink.

As always, spoilers are going to be hella abundant. I don’t even know why you would spoil yourself with the damn annotations anyway. Get some control of your life.
