In which Deadpool flushes a shrunken Rhino down the toilet. Deadpool#67

It’s important to remember that in my run, Deadpool shrunk the Rhino with Pym Particles, carried him around on a keychain, and then flushed him down the toilet.
Because dignity.

And he is so cute too… Osric talks about how he wanted to be stunt guy, but he wasn’t good enough so he became an actor. HE STILL DOES THIS THOUGH. BECAUSE HE IS FOLLOWING HIS DREAMS. ANY. WAY. HE. CAN. 

This has been me telling you: if you don’t love Osric Chau, you are doing it wrong.

Petition for Osric Chau to play Shang-Chi

Or Ryan Choi!

Hm.

I would say all three have an ensemble cast?

Zatoichi is my favorite thing, I am a huge fan (the new boxed set is AMAZING), and I have to say, the idea of him meeting Red Sonja somehow never occurred to me.

SONJA.

Why am I getting sexy Dick Grayson art, you may ask yourself?

I AM NOT COMPLAINING.

That’s an interesting question—I don’t know that it would make as much difference with the Six as it would for other books because we kinda objectified EVERYBODY a little bit. :)

I do need to get back to Texas…I went to a bunch of things in a row there and felt like I was neglecting everywhere else, but that’s been several years now. I should go back…best bbq was in Austin, though… :)

Strix + Catwoman

whitefriartuck:

I just finished reading Batgirl Annual #1 from aages ago because for some reason TFAW didn’t order me a copy and then I forgot. It was great. But now I really, really want a Strix + Catwoman book. Or at least some indication of ongoing friendship. They were so sweet together.

Hmmm.

Could Catwoman actually be involved in SECRET SIX in some way?

What an interesting question.  :)

You Know What Makes Me Happy About Red Sonja?

That people are genuinely emotionally invested in the poor thing getting a bath.

And other stuff. :)

So December is set to see the return of Gail Simone’s Secret Six and, more importantly Catman! …one of DC’s greatest characters (as well as a personal favorite).   
I can’t wait for Catman’s debut and am excited to see what his nu52 version looks like.  In the meantime, here’s a paper cut-out of what he might look like :)
Secreet Six #1 is scheduled to premier December 3rd with Simone and art by Dale Eaglesham and Ken Lashley.

DAMN!

I mean, seriously. I do some crafting, but this is amazing!
I like this so much! 

Catman’s new looks is pretty steamy. :)  Hope you like!

I was at Wondercon earlier this year, and they don’t normally invite the same guests two years in a row, sorry!

Sometimes I think Wonder Woman sits around and thinks, “Man, I wish I could be Jay Justice.”

I haven’t, can I ask what it is?

Anonymous said: hey! i'm new to the comic scene and i'm going to nycc this year, super exciting, and i was wondering do comic book writers and artists make you PAY to have them sign their books? Alsoo, super excited to meet you at nycc (even though I am super shy)

Don’t be shy!

Okay, the vast, vast majority of comic writers and artists do not ask anyone to pay for signatures or photos or things of that nature. Some may have a limit on the number of books they sign. A very very few classic artists might have a small fee, such as Neal Adams.

I never have a signing limit or fee for autographs, photographs, hugs or chats. :)  Bring as many books as you like and I will find a way to sign them.

Those of us who have large signing lines at times MAY have our lines capped if we have panels or things that we have to get to, so if it’s important to get my signature, or Kelly Sue’s, or Matt Fraction’s, there is a good chance the line will get capped early and often, so keep an eye out for signing times and try to get there early, that’s my only advice.

Cool? Come say hi. I know it doesn’t seem like it, but I am very shy myself and sometimes find myself having a difficult time talking to even very kind people. I am not an extrovert, believe it or not. So come say hello so we can be shy together!

Okay so I usually don’t do these sort of impulse recommendations but after reading this I feel like it’s absolutely necessary. This little book here called Leaving Megalopolis is probably one of the best things that I’ve read (comic book or otherwise) in years. It’s written by Gail Simone (who has done famous titles like Red Sonja, Batgirl, Wonder Woman and Birds of Prey) and illustrated by Jim Calafiore (who has done things like Aquaman, Red Lanterns and Secret Six), so that should probably be reason enough for you to get your hands on this right?!  
So what’s Leaving Megalopolis about? Well in short just imagine a perfect city with your typical cast of ever protecting superheroes…….except they’ve now suddenly gone rogue and are now killing innocent civilians as if its some game.  This story follows a group of average civilians like you or me just trying to survive and make their way out of the city (which lets be honest when we say that isn’t the easiest thing to do with a city infested with rogue metahumans. 
As if the plot wasn’t enough the craftsmanship between Simone and Calafiore should be. There’s a real story here that you find yourself invested in within a matter of a few pages. Each panel almost holds a story of its own and you find yourself attached to the characters, cheering for them each step of the way as they make their way to freedom. For a while I honestly felt like I was a part of this book that’s just how realistic the setting and the characters feel.  This book is filled with twists and turns and I promised myself I was only going to read through a few pages and then lo and behold I find myself reading the entire book in just one sitting. You really just won’t want to put this book down. 
So please check out this book READ this book you really want to read this book you guys. It’s currently available for sale over on Amazon, and you’ll probably be able to find a copy of it in your local comic shop. For those of you that read digitally its also available on Comixology. 
And as always Happy Reading! 

So glad you enjoyed this book…it was a definite labor of love!
