New comic!
Today's News:

Hey, you've heard of Patreon, right? Duh, of course you have.

OH you haven't? Here's a quick video to explain it. (Fuckin' Joel Watson's face is in the background, what!)

Anyway, I'd like to try it. Mostly to hire my colorist Laeluu to color more than just two strips a week. Like, FULL TIME for reals!!

I should point out that she colored today's strip. You know how you can tell? Two things: one, she signs her name just above my signature. And two, it's fucking beautiful.

We'll go into more detail in a coupla weeks. But until then, I thought I'd stick the idea in your head, and give you plenty of time to think about how rad this strip would be if we could have Laeluu's super-awesome coloring skills on all 5 strips a week, and what sorts of extras (things that won't take up a bunch of time for either artist!) you might be interested in getting as a thank-you for your support. :) Have a nice weekend, lovers!

Hi folks!

I reviewed "The Forgotten Man" graphic novel back a while before it was formally published. It's been out since May, so I feel safe in posting a few pages from it.



It's a revisionist history with the premise that FDR's New Deal policies actually prolonged the Great Depression by putting regulatory burdens on businesses and spending money on infrastructure projects, instead of allowing the invisible hand of the free market and self-starting enttepeneurs free reign to pick the country up from its doldrums. (This is largely nonsense.)

Below the cut, five pages of 294 (story pages, the book itself is 316 pages.) This was an advanced proof and some of the printing is a little blotchy.

It's 1933, and times are tough... )

"I know this sounds like a weird change from something like Superior Spider-Man to a book like Silver Surfer. But… Spider-Man was a weird change from Avengers Initiative. And Avengers Initiative was a weird change from Great Lake Avengers. Great Lake Avengers was a weird change from She-Hulk. She-Hulk was a weird change from Arkham Asylum: Living Hell. So I like to change gears." -- Dan Slott

From Batman Black & White Volume 3.
Batman has made a horrible mistake. What to do?
This is just a simple Batman/Superman story, but IMO, this is how it is supposed to be.

The 30th Anniversary of Spider-Man had four supersized issued with holographic covers. They also had backup stories that showed parts of Spider-Man's origin from other perspectives. Here's part of Aunt May's perspective, with an idea that her dislike of Spider-Man didn't stem from what the Daily Bugle said.

Two pages of a five page story.

New comic!
Today's News:

Yes, I definitely changed the punchline for yesterday's comic, thanks to feedback from everyone who knows better than to assume American units of measurement are used worldwide!

Hey, how would y'all like Erin's apron to be a real thing you can order? Because I think that would be possible, and I also think everyone who cooks for other people should be able to proudly proclaim that they're not cleaning this uuuuppppp.

"It’s really accessible, but it’s really formally innovative and different. It’s not like anything else out there. The splash pages in this comic don’t work the way splash pages are usually intended to in comics in 2014. Not to sound all pretentious and information-theory-y, but just the way the story and the world and the information are presented to you is completely different from the way you tend to see them in comics, especially mainstream comics, today." -- Co-writer John Barber

"Transformers vs. G.I.Joe is to Transformers 4 as All-Star Superman was to Superman Returns." -- Artist/colorist/letterer/co-writer Tom Scioli

It's been too long since I did a Fanart Thursday, to the point where I'm not sure if this is six days late or one day early...

Now when I say Bear Robin, I don't mean Dick Grayson as a hairy gay guy... though if that image gives you a warm happy feeling, far be it from me to diillusion you... you can come back later and join us if you'd like to savour it for a while...

No, I mean that a little more... literally.

"People make the case that Namor might be [first] because he was written slightly earlier, but in terms of actual Marvel comics, the very first character on the cover was the Human Torch, and I always thought he was treated with a little disrespect. I wanted to bring him back, treat him well and give him a personality, which I enjoy doing with the more obscure characters." -- James Robinson

Hi folks!

Back in 1988, DC Comics ran a crossover event titled "Millenium." The last remaining Guardian of the Universe and his Zamaron opposite number came to Earth to jumpstart the next step in human evolution through a group called "the Chosen." The Chosen, after some losses, became a group known as the New Guardians, who got their own comic book.

The New Guardians were a valiant attempt to increase diversity in DC's superhero population, including their first heavily implied to be gay superhero, Extrano. Unfortunately, the execution was heavy-handed. and Joe Staton's art was not at its best, so it's mostly remembered today for the gloriously over the top villain Snowflame in the second issue.

Today, we'll look at issue #4, eight pages of twenty-four.

Hello Scans Daily! This is my first time actually posting any pages from anything, so with luck I won't screw up and need to do a lot of editing afterwards. I should also warn you that while there are no triggers in this story, I'm gonna recap the pages that I don't post pretty thoroughly, and YMMV on whether that's a good thing or not.

水色テントがあまりにも好評だったので追加した水色トンネル。
Because Maru&Hana loved the light blue tent so much,
I purchased the light blue tunnel by addition.




でもやっぱり、遊ぶには小さめなテントの方がちょうど良いらしい。
However, after all they seem to like light blue tents.

まるさん、上ー!!

Here's some pages of Frank Miller before he went cray-cray, and Tom DeFalco borrowing the same pages for Spider-Man.

レンジフードの上に乗ってご満悦なまる。
ここを最初に見つけたのははなで、羨ましそうにじーっと見ていると思ったら、案の定。
Maru is satisfied on the top of the ventilating fans for range hood use.
Hana found this place earlier.
And Maru was envious of her who got on the top.



というかまるさん、はなさん、そこに乗っていいとは言ってないんですけど。
But hey Maru&Hana, I do not allow for you to get on there.

はな:「ダメと言われても」
まる:「乗りますけど?」
Hana:[Even if you do not admit it,]
Maru:[We get on here.]








Girls with Slingshots - GWS #1880

New comic!
Today's News:

Hey, look to your left! There's a new thing! It's a picture of me (with updated hair style) and three easy links to the GWS Facebook page, my personal Instagram account, and my Twitter account!

There's to-update item number one in eight hundred. Maybe one day I'll do something with that cast page...

Hey also, did you order this year's volume of Smut Peddler? If so, perhaps you've recently seen the book and wondered, hmm, didn't Danielle Corsetto say she was in this somewhere? Yes, I was, I am, and it's probably the filthiest story in there (unless Spike out-filthed me; I haven't seen hers yet), but my name is most certainly not on it, for that reason. There aren't many Corsettos out there, and most of them are good, God-fearing beloved relatives of mine who would like to get jobs in the near future, so I'm listed under a pseudonym. 

Have fun finding it! And if you would be so kind, don't share said nom de porn here in the comments section; I'd like to muddy the trail from fake name to real name as much as I can, thank you. :)

It's been ages, and I kept promising myself I'd do a blog update, and then other stuff would happen, and somehow in there the blog never got updated.

So. Right. Lots of stuff has happened since the last time I posted. (OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE came out in paperback in the UK and US. It's still on the US bestseller lists. Please read it. I'm very proud of it. I did a tour for THE TRUTH IS A CAVE IN THE BLACK MOUNTAINS, with Eddie Campbell and the FourPlay string quartet, and we sold out The Warfield and Carnegie Hall and the Barbican and we very nearly sold out Usher Hall in Edinburgh. CHU'S FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL came out for little kids. I helped Amanda edit in the last three days before she handed in her book, which was wonderful, and I handed in the manuscript for my next short story collection, TRIGGER WARNING... although I'm still finishing the last story in the book.)

(Backstage at Carnegie Hall, with Maddy.)

On Wednesday I went to LA for a few days of meetings and such. I learned what's happening with the AMERICAN GODS TV series (all good and on-track), with the John Cameron Mitchell movie of my story "How To Talk to Girls At Parties" (it's all looking wonderful. Elle Fanning will play Zan, the second of the girls that Enn meets at the party. The story continues after the short story is done, and is still set in 1977, in Croydon). Other things, just as good. I saw a preview of my old friend Cindy Shapiro's rock opera Psyche (http://www.psycherockopera.com/), and was really impressed by how powerful the music and staging of the myth were.

While I was talking to people, my wife Amanda (rock star, just wrote a book out in November) was working at Bard College with a director and some young actors.

Amanda's step brother Karl, a few years older than her, whom she idolised, died when he was in his mid-twenties, of ALS, so when Chris Anderson of TED challenged Amanda to do the ice-bucket challenge, she did. In a wonderful video.


And then she challenged me.

I thought about it. I was in LA (where the Californian water shortage is a very real thing. It's a drought). I wanted to be informative (because people sent me icebucket challenge videos to watch, and I had to go and google to figure out what was going on). I wanted to make it clear you could donate AND challenge. And I wanted it to me memorable.

Amanda gave me the key. She pointed out that she had done her challenge fully dressed. And not, as people might have imagined, naked or semi-naked.

I called Allan Amato and Olga Nunes, fresh off the Temple of Art Kickstarter, and they agreed to come and film me on the beach that afternoon.

And to bring Death. Because ALS is a fatal condition. So I packed my novelty bowtie, and headed out...



Please watch it. If you like it, share it...

(All of us post-bucketing, except for Best Boy Cat Mihos, who took the photo.)

I embarassed my daughters. So far, Karen accepted the challenge but hasn't posted a video (https://twitter.com/KarenGillan2/status/503101560814321664) and George has done it -- and called me a bastard, into the bargain. (http://youtu.be/mJYx2UtPTWc)

Transformers: Windblade #4

[personal profile] skemono posting in [community profile] scans_daily


Alas, alack, this is the last of this four-issue miniseries! But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? Windblade, her writer Mairghread Scott, and her artist Sarah Stone shall be returning in an on-going series and the upcoming crossover "Combiner Wars"!

So we see a really different side of Windblade, one trying to hold her own in the shadowy political world of Cybertron (a world Starscream is the undisputed master of) while still trying to hold onto some sort of moral compass. The question for Windblade in "Combiner Wars" is really: How far can you go in the name of good until you aren't good anymore? When does the end stop justifying the means?

--Mairghread Scott

So I guess I just spoiled that she doesn't die at the end of this series? Oh well. )

Writer: Mairghread Scott
Artist: Sarah Stone
