This month's sweet Green Arrow teaches us that sometimes hardships go better when you face them with someone you love. Also, how to do sexy without being shlocky. Also, Oliver's chili returns to canon! Check it!

Legendary artist Steve Dillon has died.

Most of us will know him for his work with Garth Ennis on Punisher and Preacher, but before breaking into the American Marked. He did wonderful work for 2000ad.

It's a terrific quality in a hero.

It's a terrifying one in a villain.

This month's All-Star Batman demonstrates the latter case with someone promised a reward for killing Batman.

They're not one of the ones promised by Two-Face.

They're someone promised by those who wouldn't mind both of them being dead. )

This is a fairly infamous story from Junji Ito (at least among his American fans) for reasons that will become clear to you as you read it. It's gross. Very gross.

Marvel have been releasing teaser images for the event which will, perhaps, mend some fences between Mutants and Inhumans after the revelations of "Death of X" and "I v X"... or might not

The Associated Press reports:

"The United Nations celebrated Wonder Woman's 75th birthday on Friday by naming the comic book character as its new Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Woman and Girls, despite frustration from both inside and outside the world organization that the spot should go to a real — and less sexualized — woman."

Been too long since I posted anything, but I thought I should share this since the artist I commissioned recently finished it, and I an desperate to get some feed back on my writing/story telling skills.

Be warn, there are a few grammar errors, but what do you expect from a low budget fan-commissioned comic?

Horizon #1

"There was a discussion back in the beginning about where to set this book in time. For a while it was quite a ways into the future, but Sean Mackiewicz (Skybound Editorial Director) said that it should take place in the very near future, a world we can clearly recognize outside our windows. That was a real light bulb moment for me, and what you’ll find is that this version of Earth has accelerated levels of all the awful qualities/traits that are threatening to engulf us now. They were more wasteful and careless with their environment, a lot more intolerant as the complexion of the world changed, and they were often paralyzed by fear and easily led into the waiting arms of demagogues and misery pimps.

If anything, some of the stuff in the book doesn’t really seem that far-fetched anymore, and I have to say that every day it gets a little easier to write a book about someone looking down their nose at humanity, and wanting to stomp us into the ground once and for all. I mean, it’s really easy to get into the mind frame of Zhia and her crew when I’m hearing about George Zimmerman auctioning off the gun he used to murder Trayvon Martin, which happened the exact same week I was writing #12. Truth is always stranger."

"Honestly, I think the set-up is so simple, but the character runs so deep and strange, that I just hope other people are as fascinated by the weird little bastard as I am. He does incredibly altruistic things for really kind of screwed-up deeply personal reasons, and does them in such a violent and misanthropic way that he might actually be the villain of the piece." -- Warren Ellis

"Too many modern superheroes just superhero all the time. They don’t have a context in which their life has texture and connections beyond the adventures. Heck, Batman is often like that, treating Bruce as an afterthought that doesn’t much contribute to stories. But if you decide — hey, Bronze Age Batgirl became a Congresswoman, so her thing that makes her different is politics, you’ve got a direction to send her whether she’s an adult, a college student, whatever. She’s an activist as Barbara; that gives her texture. Kara/Linda being an actress, or being in education, is texture, it’s specifics. You can pick one and run with it, even if it’s just an interest, not yet a career. It gives the character roots outside the action, outside the superpower kabuki show." -- Kurt Busiek

This is a little spotlight on Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi.

When introduced she's part of the ignored harem of the Emperor of Konan, and she's deeply in love with and devoted to the Emperor. She is also one of the seven chosen guardians for the Priestess of Suzaku (as is the Emperor), and she has the gift of super human strength. We later discover she's Assigned Male at Birth... And the characters after this point vary in how they treat her.

The text itself, really confuses the line between gay drag queen/okama, and trans woman... owing part to different cultural norms, and just the general confusion that people have on the issue. Presented here are some early scenes dealing with her outing... the reason behind her feminine presentation, and her ultimate fate... warning for some homophobic, and transmisogynistic content.

STAR TREK TNG: THE SPACE BETWEEN #3 takes place during the 7th season of NEXT GENERATION. The bad guys of the story deliberatly target Deanna Troi, so she has a purpose in the story. Also, it takes place during her romantic relationship with Worf.

Troi notices something that isn't obvious. )

There're some who don't know not to do those.

There's occasions where the latter does the former.

There is one in last month's All-Star Batman.

It's a nicely done one. )

So here we are, the big finish to Peter Parker's tenure on 'Ultimate Spider-Man' (but not my last post in the series, there's one more). For this arc Bendis was reunited with original artist Mark Bagley. This was a pretty big event for Marvel right down to the ominous previews (which were just 'Death of Spider-Man' leading people to wonder if 616's days were numbered) to the multiple variant covers to the last issue being in a polybag. (I always found the last bit to be kind of funny; they said it was to prevent spoilers but then they went to the press with the ending a day before its release.)

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

The Catholic Church in Italy is apparently having a hard time finding new exoecists. I dunno, maybe they saw a movie that put them off the idea.

Reprehensible behaviour in North Carolina as BOTH the Republican and Democrat offices are attacked on the same night. But in a nice moment of humanity overcoming ideology local Democrats started a gofundme to rebuild the Republican offices

A good Saturday for UK sci fi TV coming up as Doctor Who spinoff "Class" debuts on BBC3 on Saturday morning and "Thunderbirds are Go" starts season 2 in the afternoon.

Videogame "Overwatch" has released a set of Halloween skins for it's various characters.

The excellent Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 2 has a trailer and a couple of fun snippets sneakily filmed at NYCC

Jay Rachel Edidin, half of the always enjoyable Jay and Miles Explain the X-Men podcast is currently writing a column about their experiences since they come out as trans, and it offers a fascinating and direct insight on one person's search for their true self. The most recent one looks at finding personally aspirational examples of masculinity in pop culture.

Issue 2 of IDW's STAR TREK TNG: THE SPACE BETWEEN is set right after the events of "Unification."

It's mostly a murder mystery, but the important part: Holodeck Disco!

As you probably know 'Pepe the Frog' has been co-opted by Trump supporters and the alt-right movement. The original artist Matt Furie has illustrated this as a response.
