The reasons why Lobdell needs to be taken off of any and all DC Comics’s books immediately keep piling up. Thank God that the other two writers at least acknowledge Lobdell’s crappy behavior with audible groans. Now if only DC editors would acknowledge this guy simply isn’t a good writer anymore (was he ever?) and stop offering him books to write.
this shirt would fit if it weren’t for boobs: a tragedy
that shirt would fit if i had boobs: the sequel
this shirt fits perfectly because my boobs are the right size: the fanfiction
my shirts always fit: a man’s tale
Oh, man, that last one is HILARIOUS. Men don’t have boobs (on average), but finding shirts that fit can still be a pain in the ass. I’m not even talking about needing some mysterious size between medium and large (marge? ledium?), but trying to find fitted shirts can be a joke. What’s that? My neck is a 17 1/2 and my sleeves are a 32/33? Well, that must mean that I’m also 300 pounds and 6’ 10”, right? NO. Wait, this shirt is an okay fit, but it’s about a foot too long. How about this one? No, it fits everywhere except that it’s not a fitted shirt, so I look like I’m wearing some sort of fabric-formed box from the 1980s that balloons out at my waist so it’s unfortunate for anyone who has to look at me. This shirt is a good length, the sleeves fit, and I can tuck it in so it looks nice and smooth, but the area around the chest and shoulders is pinching in so it looks like I’m forever caught in a mid-Hulk transformation. Dammit, I’ll just get a pullover or T-shirt.
I’ve tried on three different medium shirts and they all fit differently. Dammmmmmmit.
Shit. I’m too short, too fat, too thin, too muscular, too big in the stomach area, too tall, too wide, my neck is too big, and my arms are too small. Somehow, I’m all of these at different times and at the same time.
No one’s saying that women don’t have clothing issues, specifically ones related to their breasts, but the previous scenario is a regular occurrence for myself and most men that I know, especially if they give a damn about what they look like. But by all means, go ahead and talk about how men can’t relate to issues like this and other clothing or body issues. I mean, if that for some reason makes you feel better.
We won’t even get started on the annoyance that most stores (department, boutique, consignment, and thrift) that carry men’s and women’s clothes tend to have 80 percent of the store laid out for women’s clothes, 15 percent for men’s clothes, and 5 percent for jewelry.
I’m incredibly disappointed that this isn’t real. It may make Alan Moore’s head explode, but I still wear this.
Today is the release of my new comic book series, called The Midas Flesh! YOU GUYS, THIS IS AMAZING.
It’s based on this Dinosaur Comic but is way more awesomer, if you can even believe that. It’s written by me and drawn by Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline, who you probably know because we’re also the team that creates the Adventure Time comic! And now we are also working together on this new crazy story about King Midas in space, featuring dinosaurs!
You can read the first few pages here, you can read early reviews here or here and NOW THAT YOU ARE ASSUREDLY HOOKED, you can pick the book up at your local comic book shop or direct from the publisher, Boom, who is offering both this first issue or a subscription to the entire eight-issue series, which includes a free print! THE PRINT FEATURES EMILY’S DINOSAUR IN A SPACESUIT, JUST FYI.
Go enjoy the preview and then maybe pick up this book because it is going to be a CRAZY STORY and I can’t wait to share it with YOU.
How have I missed this book? It looks amazing. The concept is crazy and unique, the characters aren’t cookie cutter characters (two women and a raptor!), it has a scientist raptor!, the art is fantastic, and it’s by the team who makes the Adventure Time comic book.
King Midas’s touch has turned all of Earth into gold and this is an exploratory space crew from another planet out to take a piece of Midas’s Flesh to uses as a weapon against their enemies in a great space war? That sounds ridiculous and awesome and ridiculously awesome.
Earlier we posted the official image released by The CW of Grant Gustin in his Flash costume. Now here’s a look of that costume in action on the set of The Flash currently filming in Vancouver, Canada.
What do you think?
More shots of this awesome TV version of the Flash costume.
Someone get me a meerkat to tickle ASAP.
John Oliver from The Daily Show Presents Gun Control to America - Imgur
Whoop dee fucking doo indeed.
Ever feel like the Daily Show does better reporting and REAL questioning than most news shows?
It’s satire only reveals more truth than not.
Fuck the NRA.
I think the words this guy was looking for were:
"But money? Who will give me money to support them if it’s not the NRA and gun manufacturers? I mean… money? It’s a lot of money. That makes me say whoopee."
When austinbooks and kateordie have a Ladies Night, they aren’t kidding about it most definitely exclusively being a ladies night. I couldn’t get to the store for the signing earlier and tried just now to quickly get a book signed by Kate Leth before getting shooed away. I came in expecting to get the boot and I certainly understand, but dammmnnn. I’ll pick up the book later.
I’ll say this about Leth: In the short time I was there, I saw her pose for pictures with a little girl and a bunch of the store’s employees before going back to signing books. She certainly seemed nice and is quite stunning too. Hopefully, some of the awesome ladies (I told about a dozen, including misshalyn) dropped by the store tonight.
JACK KIRBY QUOTE POSTER MADE BY @RYLEEART!
I loved this quote and I wanted it on my wall so I asked my pal Ryan Lee to make me a poster of it that I could print. You can download the hi rez right here and print it yourself, too! This is my favorite thing I’ve ever read about comic art, and it hit me really hard. I hope it does the same for you.
You can follow Ryan Lee on Tumblr as well at ryleeart.tumblr.com. He’s an awesome artist in his own right.
I don’t care what your creative trade or hobby is, because this is something you should read. That last paragraph is crazy important.
