Comics Riot

An occasionally queer take on comics by a transfeminist nerdgirl.

"[T]they want so badly to be “hard” and “edgy” but most often the results are sour, false and cheap. DC Comics is in danger of becoming the literary equivalent of Axe Body Spray."

Steve Bennett on DC Comics (via cooltrainershells)

This comparison is both so good and so obvious that I’m amazed nobody’s come up with it before.

another-elle asked:

Is there a trick to finding you at C2E2? I'll be there Saturday, and it would be cool to say hey.

superheroeswearingjackets:

I’m not sure there’s a particular trick (I could wear a white corsage or something, I suppose), but here’s what I look like:

I’ll keep an eye out for you. For what it’s worth, I look like this:

Anyone else who reads this blog is also welcome to approach me, as long as you’re friendly and accepting of the fact that I’m pretty awkward.

America for a Bisexual Cap

I honestly believe that as a living embodiment of the unattainable (or at least unattained) dream of a truly fair, just, and egalitarian America, Steve Rogers can only be pansexual.

Say….. when is Madame Hydra going to show up in the movies or on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Wasn’t there a version of her in The Wolverine? So that probably doesn’t bode well, rights-wise. Which is sort of crazy, since Marvel Studios has Hydra. None of this makes any sense to me. It would be awesome to see her in a Captain America movie, though.

I sent one of the Nightcrawler asks so if you got only two then me and that other person just have bad timing, but if you got more than that then yeah someone is probably trying to troll you in a really weird way

postcardsfromspace:

One person sent several over a couple days, with remarkably similar wording. It was pretty bizarre. There was another that sounded fairly different, which I assume was yours, but, yeah, came in at the same time as one of theirs—so, a little from column A, a little from column B.

It’s a good question—the Bamfs are a continuity clusterfuck going back literally *decades*—and I promise I’ll answer it eventually. Just might be a while, because, life.

I don’t want to jump on Rachel’s answer, but I think it’s worth mentioning that, while the Bamfs (the mini-Nightcrawlers) would certainly be confusing to new X-Men readers, the reason for their presence was never clear to even the oldest of fans. When they first showed up in Wolverine and the X-Men, it wasn’t the first time we had seen them in history, but their appearance and behavior was very different, and we had no idea where they’d come from or why they were infesting the school. Then that series went on for 42 issues and the Bamfs were never explained. As that run ended, an explanation was finally given in a different book- Amazing X-Men.

I guess the point I’m trying to make is, when you’re a new reader, you think that anything you don’t understand is only confusing to you because you’re new. But sometimes things are just weird and confusing because that’s the way the writer wants it to be. That’s especially true, I think, in Wolverine and the X-Men.

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.
