After literally one day of working, my computer broke, again for no reason. So here’s an incredible comic book cover by the Chris Sims/Rusty Shackles team.
Fuck Yeah, It’s Friday
Tim Gunn. Talking about superhero fashion. Fuck yeah. He was Iron Man one time.

You’re Mod Now!
Yep, this is pretty much how the whirlwind romance went.
And I just have to share Jim’s crowning moment of bad-assery where he completely steals the book for three pages, and gives possibly the best bit of dialog in the entire thing.
“Then why do you not run?”
“I’m a news photographer. We don’t turn away, and we don’t run from the picture.”
“You and your kind would stay and die for a photograph?”
“No. We stay and die for the truth. Because that’s the only thing worth dying for.”

Of all the things I loved about “Superman Earth One” (which I just read this morning) my favorite has to be Straczynski’s portrayal of Jimmy Olsen as a bad-ass photojournalist. Unfortunately, my scans of the book sucked. Fortunately, Elfgrove’s did not. — Ryking
Man, I can’t look t anything “Earth One” related without thinking of this AWESOMELY insightful comparison of Earth One and All-Star superman. Some of the best comics scholarship I’ve ever read.

YEAH I’LL SHOW YOU, MARC. I’M GONNA LIVE IN YOUR HOUSE BUT ALSO YOU SUCK.
Bonus Matt Fraction Action: Us at baltimore comic-con, he said we needed a photo of us “Donking peen heads” and I have had good luck ever since.
