Tor On Best Comics Ending In 2012

Loki schemes several steps ahead of any healthier mind, factoring an eventual good with lots of asterisks, and in an era of agonizing global decisions this was an affecting parable of a personality willing to carry the consequences—like Judas as conceived by Borges, Loki doesn’t die for our sins, we live thanks to his; an edgy value to form a funnybook around.

Always good to be on a list like this, and especially good to be in such fine company.

I also think “Judas as conceived by Borges” is all kinds of neat.

Rest here.

Picked up via Ross Campbell on twitter, Archaia’s recently published IRON: OR THE WAR AFTER by Shane-Michael Vidaurri looks absolutely lovely. What’s it like? Dunno. Haven’t read it. But here’s the cut and pasted synopsis…

It is the aftermath of a long war, in a world of constant winter. An intelligence spy from the Resistance—the rabbit, Hardin—steals secret information from a military base of the Regime. His actions set off a chain of events that reverberates through the ranks of both sides, touching everyone from Pavel the crow to Giles the goat, from the highest-ranking officials to the smallest orphaned child. When the snow finally settles, who will be the true patriot and who the true traitor?

More details here. Rest of preview here.

From the script for HAWKGUY #3, because i was just asked about it on Twitter:


So what if during this fight sequence, where CLINT kicks a little ass but gets his ass kicked FAR WORSE, he does so NAKED only over his bits is a little purple smiling piece of HAWKEYE clip art — like his face in the old 80’s costume — to cover his junk?

like in the little box there on the left.

Is that… is that the worst idea in the entire universe? If this is in fact a TERRIBLE IDEA, then just crop and frame appropriately. But… but little Hawkeye face. Think about it.

Meta Wednesday: a proposed reading schedule

littlelostsock:

Here’s a preliminary schedule for the Journey Into Mystery Meta Wednesday. I’ve taken into account that Fraction’s work will be harder to write about, as well as requests that we try to include some of Thor/The Mighty Thor that is relevant to the story arc. It’s a very Kid Loki-driven schedule, based on the wild assumption that since this is largely a JIM reading group and not a generic Thor one, that’s most of what you’ll want. Please gimmie your comments, ideas, and grievances!

That’d be telling, surely? 

I doubt I’ll ever do the story, and the mystery is part of the journey. However…

Well, you know the argument that Satan (i.e. “Adversary”) isn’t actually a name in the old testament, and something more like a title?

I suspect I’d have dug into stuff along those lines.
