The July Image Solicitations are live. Including…

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #2story: KIERON GILLENart / cover: JAMIE MCKELVIE & MATT WILSONJULY 18 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50Diabolically divine pop-god Lucifer is in trouble. She offers superfan Laura an unprecedented deal if she helps. It’s a bargain. A Faustian bargain, and they always turn out so well. Who knows who Laura will turn to fulfill it? We do. Clearly. It’s our comic. You can know too if you buy this fine pictorial narrative with your human money coins.

Yes, I’m having fun with solicitations again.
Lots of great stuff this month - have a nose at all of the #1s, but SUPREME: BLUE ROSE and LOW are ones I’m desperately craving. I suggest WicDiv followers especially pay attention to what Tula’s doing with Warren on the former.
Anyway - here’s another cover. Isn’t it very yellow? It is very yellow.

Atomic Wonder womanWith the world’s superpowers moving toward a nuclear war, Wonder Woman was sent into “Man’s World” to try and broker a peace between the parties. Her attempts to broker such a peace were interrupted by the unfortunate impact of an object from space. Both sides mistaking the impact for a first strike, each side unleashed their nuclear arsenal. Not realizing she was not to blame for the nuclear war, Atomic Wonder Woman blames herself for failing to stop the war and bring peace. Now in the rubble of the world, she struggles to help the survivors build a new, and hopefully more harmonious, world.

For the comic inspired in the game Infinite Crisis

Batgirl (2000-2006) #20

Chuck Dixon guest writes once again for another team-up issue! This time with once-current Batgirl, Stephanie Brown as the Spoiler! (Am I possibly being topical for once? Maybe… on accident)
Steph becomes Cass’ best friend and one of the most stable relationships she has throughout her series. It’s really a wonder that we are still, to this day, absolutely struggling with having any female-led superhero books where the main female has multiple relationships with other females that are positive and influential and diverse in their nature when they did it so right in the early 2000’s here.
And I really can’t emphasize enough, Cass was incredibly popular during this time period! And that’s among male and female demographics - we’ll later see her named as the 2002 Wizard (Fan Award) Best Heroine. A female dominated book, with a woman of color as the central character, a legacy title, and starring two women with disabilities. And, again, this was in the early 2000’s.
Every argument made about comics on the internet is void. This series defied everything dudebros argue about in comics. And at the time it was being published, even they loved this series. So I fail to see what current hurdles the industry has in regards to representation.

I’m absolutely mortified that I hadn’t posted my Bat-Man comics here, for posterity.

This is how Batman should be.

This is the abridged version of Something Terrible, cut for Upworthy last week.

Thanks so much to everyone who has helped share my “secret origin” story. I’m still being flooded with messages from people who have just learned they can put down their invisible guns. By sharing this, you’re helping me shine the signal. Thanks, Commissioners. <3

If you’d like to download the full, DRM-free version of Something Terrible, which is almost twice as long and includes my afterword, you can get it for $0.99, here.

To donate to the next comic I’m making with my friends, check it out here.

this right here, this comment right here pisses me the fuck off.

you’re in your every right to like one company more than the other but cite “better women” as your reason is not only insulting to the amazing, wonderful…

She is damn right, Marvel has better treatment of female characters.
