AWESOME ART FROM ROCKET RACCOON AUCTION TO BENEFIT CREATOR BILL MANTLO

By Matt D. Wilson

A lot of people fell in love with Rocket Raccoon this summer thanks to the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, so this seems like a great time to pick up some art featuring the movie’s angry anthropomorphic star — and to help out his co-creator Bill Mantlo at the same time.

Mantlo was severely injured when he was hit by a car in 1992, and has needed constant and costly care ever since. The prominence of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians brought welcome attention to Mantlo’s condition, and comic artists have stepped up — in conjunction with Multiversity Comics – to help fund his care with online auctions of original art featuring Rocket and other Mantlo creations (yes, including ROM Spaceknight). All proceeds will go to the Mantlo family.

Great cause for a fellow creative.

And then just a general “Mike Parobeck was great!” post. I really love his rendition of Hawkman and Hawkwoman.

Parobek & Strazewski’s Justice Society was a good book killed by internal DC office poilitics, according to rumors. Too bad, as it was an interesting and well done book. At least Jessie Quick’s introduction therein wasn’t forgotten and she became a staple in Waid’s Flash run soon after.

Did anyone else read Mike Parobeck’s The Fly, from !MPACT, when you were a kid?

Enjoyable book I read in full and LOVED Parobek’s art. Wish comics could be this accessible today.

BIZARRO BACK ISSUES: BOW DOWN TO BOUNCING BOY (1968)

By Chris Sims

Ever since I wrote that Ask Chris a few weeks back about how I’d rebuild the Legion of Super-Heoroes, I’ve been seized with the desire to go back and re-read some of the classic Legion stories from the Silver Age, but when I sat down to do just that, I was really surprised. Not because the stories are weird, mind you — I knew they were pretty bonkers from the first time I read them, and they certainly haven’t gotten any less weird since — but because they threw the light on one of the most grievous oversights of my writing career. See, as happy as I was with the lineup I came up with for that column, I left out the character who is unquestionably the most powerful member, the actual, official “King of the Legion.” I speak, of course, of Bouncing Boy.

You may laugh, but it’s true, and it happens in a comic where he schools the rest of the Legion so bad that they literally start tearing off their clothes in some kind of organized tribute ceremony. And that’s not even close to being the weirdest thing that happens here.

Scraps is by far my favorite female Oz character; Tik-Tok is the best of the males (if he even garners a gender at all).

CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

collegehumor:

image

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

can someone explain this to me with small words

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

i do not approve in the slightest

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

Frickin Frack this is important, please sign!

Oh what the fuck. 

signed!

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.

In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.

I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.

Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

-Morgan

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/09/reddit-pornhub-websites-slow-down-net-neutrality-september-10

actually the final decision is apparently still up in the air according to a lot of people

the link i just posted says there’s going to be quite a few popular sites protesting tomorrow to bring attention to it

don’t give up when nobody’s lost yet

SIGNAL BOOST. Don’t give up.

ROGER LANGRIDGE WILL WARM HEARTS WITH NEW SERIES ‘ABIGAIL AND THE SNOWMAN’

By Matt D. Wilson

Muppet Show and Popeye writer/artist Roger Langridge has announced a new series completely of his own creation at Boom Studios, and it looks downright adorable.

Abigail and the Snowman will be a four-issue, all-ages miniseries that focuses on a 9-year-old girl who moves to a small town where she knows no one. She has a tough time making friends, as kids sometimes do, until she meets a yeti named Claude.

Will be watching for this. Sounds great.
