Did she ever actually fight? She fought while dressed as an iron gauntlet guy but other than that she existed only to die tragically and flirt with adult link. I’d rather have one of the Gerudo guards who beat Link without even trying.
Metroid other M is the worst thing to happen with Nintendo in a long time and for some reason they're using that version of Samus in the new Smash just really gets to me. I still have no idea why Nintendo let the jiggle physics guys tell Samus's story.
I wish that if they wanted out-of-suit Samus they’d use 6’3” 200 lb vintage Samus. There are quite a lot of slender pretty blonde ladies in Smash Bros already, that design is covered, just go ahead and throw in an amazon.
do people not realize the american accent is actually the original accent? the typical british/english accent actually started much later by the upper class. not that it MATTERS but at least get your facts straight if youre gonna pseudo insult me
iirc it’s been said that Shakespearean plays actually read better in an American accent, since it’s more closely related to original English
There are claims that a very specific dialect in the American South is closer to ye olde Shakespearean English than the present upper-middle-class London accent, but what you’re going to call “the original English accent” is a super semantic line drawn in the sand when English started separating from the other languages it was cobbled out of. Other historians claim that the Black Country dialect is the closest to English’s Anglo-Saxon ancestry and therefore the “most authentic” accent. So whenever you hear anyone complain about anyone else’s English accent, just remember that cute little old couple in that video.
I am unbelievably stoked to get my hands on that Lord of the Hunt throw pillow, but I'm not sure when I'll have the money to grab one. Is there any need to worry about something selling out? I wasn't sure just looking the page.
Awesome step forward with the shop! How hard is it to set one up? I'm thinking of setting one up but S6 might be a better idea than Etsy?
Super easy, it’s easier than registering for deviantart, it’s just a little time consuming making all the different resolutions for different items, and I haven’t seen any kind of cutoff guide to use as a template when you’re laying out things like iPhone cases.
I might start a Redbubble store too and just see which one is easier/people like more.

Do you ever name your Pokemon team members after your comic characters?
Fun Fact: Daggett got his name because one of his earliest influences back in tha dayyyy~ was the Rival character in Pokemon Blue, And I named my hero/rival in my first Pokemon game when I was 11 Norbert and Daggett.
We’ve been alive as a global society for literally thousands of years, and we could air virtually anything about any point in all that time, but instead here’s a marathon of guys who really like old cars and “vikings”. You’re welcome.
Hey now, Laser Eyes Underwear Viking: A History Channel Original Series is the educational programming I’ve been waiting for my whole life.
Having this sudden queasy dread of extreme inadequacy for when I get to TCAF, being surrounded by people who make a living on their comics while I try to squish it in the margins of my full-time job and barely get any merch together. I’m mostly just gonna be there giving away free buttons, asking people to read my new comic, and doing sketches for anyone who wants one, I’m gonna look like a punk next to all the real comic people with their shit together.
Please come talk to me at TCAF so I don’t look like a loser, I’ll give you free buttons.
Fuck that, adapt. Change what makes it racist, evolve the story. Don’t trash an idea because it will be frowned upon, take out what poisons it and give it a new coat of paint!
You know sometimes that is what it takes to fix the problem and make something you’re happy with, I wrote a graphic novel’s worth of material for Platinum Black I just trashed because I didn’t like how the story was developing. Like committed to paper something like a hundred and fifty pages of script and slashed at least seventy five of them. But I felt like what I trashed helped me get a better hold on the characters and figure out how to write them better, or at least figure out how I didn’t want them to be written. I mean, I drew a hundred and eight pages of Blue and Dagg stuff for that Colosseum thing and the most salvagable develpoment that came from it was deciding I hated Blue written like a ditzy comic relief manchild.
It sort of feels like… sometimes when I’m doing puzzles and can’t get them right, I feel like I’m just trying the same thing over and over again from different angles without realizing I’m basically making the same mistake. Then when I step back and try something totally different or look at it in a completely different way I can figure it out. I think a lot about how writing is like solving those sliding tile puzzles, you move one thing and you can mess up the whole picture. I used to be really awful at those puzzles because once I got any part of the picture solved I didn’t want to mess it up again. But then I realized the trick to them is you do have to mess up tiles you’ve already sorted into their spot, so you can put them in their correct place in the rotation of moving pieces until they settle where they’re supposed to.
That creepy pasta post you made? You should add 'Dogscape'. That one messed me up...
With all due respect the list I made was of my favourites, You are free to make your own list with Dogscape, I didn’t think it was bad, but it was pretty par-for-the course post-apocalyptic “society is falling apart, everyone is crazy, men are barbarians women are mute commodities” fare with a helping of body horror on the side. It had some unique world building and reminded me of a pulp horror story in a magazine from the 60’s or something, but overall it left me thinking “I’d tell someone to read this after A Boy and His Dog, I Am Legend, and I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream to see earlier pop culture iterations of many of the same themes”.
...which is to say that even if they are "jumping on the kamala khan bandwagon" I can only think that people getting it into their heads that having a diverse roster is a good thing because people will buy it is positive? definitely more positive than "only white dudes are popular." no comment on how long this has been in development, and its awesome that they seem to be actually speaking to cree people.
This is a worthwhile point, Whenever a lack of diversity in comics is mentioned the justification is usually “straight white male leads sell comics”. I suppose treating diversity as the new bandwagon people are jumping on to sell comics is sort of like saying Thor, Hawkeye, Batman, Hulk, Mr. Fantastic, Wolverine, Professor X, Frank Castle, Flash, Captain America, Hal Jordan, Daredevil, Spider-Man, Gambit, Dr. Strange, the Human Torch, Johnny Blaze, Cyclops, Aquaman, etc. are all jumping on the Superman Bandwagon or something.
It feels a bit like DC is jumping on the Kamala Khan bandwagon, but if it means more representation in comics, I’m in.
This feels uncomfortably like you’re taking something written for young native people and trying to discredit it by making it about someone else, but that aside, this character has been in development long enough that she was in the news last October.
There is an unfortunate trend in people ignoring native news when it happen and trying to make native stories about anyone other than native people, which is what I’m concerned is going to happen here with the combination of not hearing anything about this story until my parents told me about it on the phone last night and your remarks now. It’s interesting that that particular character would be accused of existing thanks to the “Kamala Khan Bandwagon” but I don’t hear people saying things like “the new Ghost Rider is probably only a Latino teenager thanks to the Kamala Khan bandwagon”
Not to say that those comments don’t exist, but apparently not with enough prevalence that they’re one of the first responses to pop up on a Tumblr post about the character
(Of course I know nothing about you, maybe you yourself are Cree and venting your own worries about how DC is going to handle this! This is just the kind of response I was worried this story was going to receive, directing attention away from the actual character herself and potentially spoiling audience’s attitudes before she appears.)
