Here’s my Project Rooftop entry! I was thinking kind of a Prince/Beyonce sort of thing. Wanted her to be a little more casual and out there because that’s what I liked so much about the original Draw Batgirl Meme.
After I submitted that I did a few more that were more functional and the latter was the one of that bunch that I liked enough to finish. Looked at a lot of GCPD swat stuff from the Nolan films and tried to fit the bat logo in there. Hope you like ‘em!

I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.
Warning. Contents under pressure.
Wow. Greg Rucka is super for reals not here for your sexist bullshit in nerd or geek communities. Also, something that stuck out to me was this passage:
"Portland Public Schools has a lottery system to get into its magnet programs. For two years, our daughter has been dreaming of attending one specific middle school, one that’s art focused. She’s been in a science-and-math magnet program, and she’s done very well there, mind, but the social aspect… it’s been grinding her down. She was looking to escape. She was looking to go to a place where, she imagined, she could be who she is and not suffer for it."
His daughter, thriving academically in the math and science program is looking to leave for an art program because the SOCIAL ASPECT (read: sexist microaggressions based on her gender) is wearing her down.
And what’s devastating to me and so many others who will nod their heads while reading this post is that even if she overcomes this particular gauntlet and sticks with science and math? There’s going to be another one. And another one. And another one. All through high school, undergrad, graduate school, her first job, her entire career. Until she quits because she just can’t take another day of suffering to be simply who she is. Because there’s not enough support or resources or even people acknowledging that it is a *systemic* problem that needs to be addressed at every level.
How bad do things have to get?

Anónimo preguntó: When Hawkeye is relaunched can we have a creative team that gets everything done on time? The delays have been ridiculous and have killed all of my interest in a plot that dragged to begin with.
Apparently not, as you’re still interested enough to come here to complain about it. Bit of a tell, that.
If there’s any truism, it’s that fans will complain when a book is late, but they’ll also complain (and often wander away from it) if it comes out regularly but isn’t what they’re looking for.
HAWKEYE is successful and has been successful based on the work that specific creative team has done on it. Yes, we could bring in another creative team to work on it, but in all likelihood they wouldn’t duplicate the same magic that’s been making the series work.
And hey, once this material is books, you can read it any time.
Ok I follow lots of amazing blogs these are some of my absolute favourites, but if you’re not on the list it doesn’t mean I don’t love you too :) xxx
Wow, that’s flattering. I mean, there is a lot of people in Tumblr that are way WAY more knowledgeable about the big M comics, so really, thanks for that. I mean, you are putting me in the same sentence with a Marvel insider!
I will give some recommendations too, then:
Great news for The Superior Foes of Spider-man fans!
Well, your dad is a robot, Billy.
Ugh, this art. My folks are in town this week, so I’m going to have less than the usual time I use to make these this week. There will probably be a drop in quality. Be forewarned.
Even a toaster can cry.
There’s a wonderful scene in season three of Bob’s Burgers, in which the eponymous restaurateur lets his 13-year-old daughter Tina drive the family’s car in a nearly-empty lot. “Let’s make this kitty purr,” Tina monotones, glancing nervously at her dad from the driver’s seat. She pulls out of the parking…
This is why Bob’s Burgers is the greatest show. “Unlike Family Guy and South Park, Bob’s Burgers is a deeply tolerant show. Everybody is weird, and if an episode has a villain, they’re usually made sympathetic by the end. Nobody tolerates or is tolerated as much as Tina, making her indispensable to the show. The Belchers shriek, shout over each other, and violate the health code, but with love.”
