Hulk vs. Dog

Did you know Hulk (from the Cancerverse (that doesn’t need explaining right?)) was once defeated by a dog? True story.

Recently I did a “power ranking” of the comic books I buy monthly to visualize it on paper. In past two years I’ve gone from buying one or two books monthly (the rested in collected trades) to nearly a dozen now.

Few books I have ranked bring me as much joy as Rat Queens. It’s just so fun! I was a fan since day one and it’s exciting to see fan base grow. Weta is doing an animated adaption. And I am curious how they handle the salty language and violence.

This book has a big future. You should get on board.

After a brief delay issue #7 is out Wednesday. I guarantee I will be picking up a copy.

Thrilled to play a small part in this. And having the book signed by Scott & Merlin too is pretty great!

Today’s pull list is unusually long for me. If you have the money is your budget I highly recommend you buy All New Ghost Rider #4 too.

As a person of color it’s exciting to see a superhero I could actually cosplay as. AND it’s super f******g cool!

…and a little creepy too.

A bit of a warning though. The colors are so firey hot bright you may need sunglasses to read this book.

In the past week I’ve been playing with the idea of staying on topic and falling into the rabbit hole of sex in comics.

The idea was seeded in my last Tumblr and gained momentum when I had a conversation about “adult comics” in which I admitted to owning an Eros comic book. Sex in exists. And sex exists in comic books too. BG, GG, BB, and other forms of sexuality exist on the printed page. Some of these even exist in mainstream comics of “the big two”.

Even further: there is something for everyone in comic books.

The book I own mentioned above is Birdland by Gilbert Hernandez and is canonical to the Love & Rockets universe. The book is very frank and explicit punk rock statement on sexuality and identity.

Perhaps, if there is enough interest, I could go further on the subject.

I am a regular listener of Bullseye. It’s a variety show about what’s good in pop culture and media. Recently I completed their annual survey. The show is great and I think you should listen.

One of the questions asked is who you like to hear on the show. My answer: Matt Fraction.

Here are five reasons you should want to hear him on the show too:

5. He is more commonly known as BUTT STUFF WEREWOLF on twitter.

4. Launched last year Sex Criminals is a cultural phenomenon with a second story arc coming out soon.

3. Fraction has a past history with drugs & alcohol that he has been very honest about.

2. Even further, there’s a nice story about his marriage to comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick here.

1. Most of all I am curious about his ability to subvert the comic genre to sneak in things. In the pages of FF #6 the three Moloid orphans and Tong coming out as changing gender to his two brothers made me cry. (Pictured below. Art: Michael Allred)
