Zoe: Yeah? Thought you'd get land crazy that long in port. Wash: Probably, but I've been sane a long while now, and change is good.

Thrive to spite them

Yep it is the Fraction run. I kept seeing that tag and I liked the Clint characterizations better so I finally gave the comics a shot. Also the references to the tracksuit Draculas and I wanted to check that out. The stories I read weren't overusing the word bro, bro...

Kate is awesome. Reading this definitely makes me more excited about the upcoming series.

Oh God, we're either going to have to listen to Will Smith accepting an Oscar or John Travolta trying to pronounce Benedict Cumberbatch, aren't we?

Oh yeah. Kate Bishop is blessed to have been written well by almost everyone who's had a book starring her. (The Kelly Thompson series was a bit too wacky sitcom-ish for me, but it didn't seem badly written.)

Don’t copy that floppy.

When these started showing up on Tumblr, I thought it just fan art, but no, it’s an officially licensed by DC thing.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Those are cute!

The Young Avengers I have on hold is finally ready to pick up. I got excited when I read that at work and was like "i'll get it on my way home". Except the library closed before I got off so now I have to wait until tomorrow.

I also looked through the trade paperbacks they had and I thought I picked up the start of the Spider-Gwen ones but I didn't so I have to take that back and find the right one. I also requested The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

I'd like to read some Spiderman but I have no idea where to start there.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

I don't know where a good place to start with classic Spider-Man would be, but Bendis' run on Ultimate Spider-Man is really solid, at least the first few years. (I eventually got burned out on them when it started getting side-tracked by big crossover events and such.) My only real complaint about them is I don't care for their take on the Green Goblin.

Now tagless for your comfort.

Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo’s Beast Boy & Raven trilogy is ADORABLE!
