X-Force #118
Wherein we all stop to appreciate the fabulous fashions of the X-Force.

X-Force #118

Wherein we all stop to appreciate the fabulous fashions of the X-Force.

X-Force #118

Wherein we see the first hints of Phat’s struggle with his sexuality and the new team suffers its first (of many) casualties with the death of Bloke.

Phat and Vivisector actually have a pretty cool arc in regards to their sexual identities that comes more to the forefront as the series goes on. It’s handled fairly well if I recall correctly.

X-Force #117

Our introduction to Guy Smith, AKA Mister Sensitive, AKA The Orphan, plus dramatic setup and the issue’s cliffhanger ending.

X-Force #117

The new (mostly permanent, or at least as permanent as they get in this series) team at their debut press conference, before and after an unexpected interruption. 

X-Force #116

Tike Alicar, AKA The Anarchist, the team’s jerk and my favorite character in the series.

His introduction here does a pretty great job establishing the basics, he’s vulgar and cynical, but also intelligent and it’s a little unclear just how much of his persona is an affectation. 

X-Force #116

Wherein the team is introduced and promptly killed off.

I picked up the X-Statix Omnibus a couple weeks ago and have been rereading it. I figured I might as well share.

Unacceptable.

I don’t have many followers, I know this.  But tumblr is more than than the followers you have, the ears that first hear your voice when you shout, when you cry.

Reblog this.

Get the word out.

If giant robots fighting giant monsters flops on our watch, on this generation’s turn at bearing the torch of nerdom, we shall forever be remembered as the generation that lost it all.

I say, no.  Not this time.  Not this movie.  We will not fail our genre and the geeks that came before us- dreaming of this day- nor those destined to follow us.

Friends on Twitter pointed this out and I have to say this: okay, guys. For serious, chill.

It is not your job to make Pacific Rim a hit. You are not “on watch.” (What the hell does that even mean?) It is a profit-seeking venture (and a cynical, button-pushing, keyword-friendly one at that) foisted upon you by a massive media conglomerate in a year where we have already seen “nerd movies” gross over a billion dollars easy. The major movie studios are not going to stop nerd-pandering any time soon. Hell, last year Dredd and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Battleship and John Carter all flopped huge, and that didn’t stop the studios from doubling down on the nerdstravaganza dollar.

Heck, it is entirely possible that Pacific Rim will be shitty! Guillermo Del Toro is not some magical director incapable of flaw; both Hellboys were mixed bags at best, Blade II was Not Very Good, et cetera. (Pan’s Labyrinth is quite a ways back now.) How about that? Maybe it’s just going to be shitty, and that’s fine. We don’t want shitty movies to make lots of money, because that would be stupid.

Stop assigning yourself work because you define yourself by your preferred pop-cultural detritus. (While we’re at it, stop defining yourself by your preferred pop-cultural detritus, that would be good too.) Being a fan of something is great; becoming a proxy marketing tool for corporations who aren’t paying you is something else entirely.

Blade II is masterpiece. Did you miss the scene where Blade gives a dude a vertical suplex? It’s pretty central to the appeal.



I don’t think this page will ever stop being beautiful to me.
From part 15 of Zenith Phase III, written by Grant Morrison, with art by Steve Yeowell and lettering by Kid Robson, it originally appeared in 2000AD, and it is a thing of beauty. A crazy, goofy looking acid casualty robot teleporting to the rescue astride a psychadelic alternate reality dinosaur is everything I could ever want out of a comic and more.
Phase III of Zenith was Grant Morrison’s first crack at doing his take on the classic multiversal conflict seen in DC’s various Crises, and it’s really worth a look.
