Stop what you’re doing right now and read Elektra #1 by W Haden Blackman and Mike Del Mundo (deadlydelmundo).

Or just stare at it, mouth agape, like I have been for the past 20 minutes…

Greg Rucka, laying down the law. This one’s coming in HOT, folks.

And yeah, I’ve seen the T-shirt in question. The Gamer Gentleman thinks the gentlemanly thing to do would be a kick whomever’s made the unbelievably stupid decision to wear one out in public square in the junk.

Bonus points if the kicker’s a cosplaying Disney Princess, Black Widow, or Captain Marvel. I’d GIF it, put it on a website, and let it live forever on the internet.

What this boils down to is the audience being insatiable, demanding “more.” So when you want to know why the Hobbit got split into three movies, the last Harry Potter movie was split into two, or other such shenanigans, this is why. When there’s demand, someone (studios, creators, etc.) will find a way to supply it and make money.

I admire J K Rowling for being a creator in the middle of all that intense want, and would not begrudge her using pen names for the rest of her life if she wanted to as a result.

look at how insecure they are, especially Sam Jackson

As much as I’ve seen of this I’m beginning to think it’s an actual thing. Like it states in their deals that they’re now being followed by Marvel snipers.

They’re probably dressed in SHIELD uniforms.

Or… you know.

The Nun Who Got Addicted to Twitter

“My superior is a gamer.” Sister Helena Burns said, laughing. “You know you’re a media nun when your superior is a gamer.” 
You might not expect nuns to be experts on Twitter, Facebook, and multi-player video games, but Burns defies all expectations. With 13,790 Twitter followers and counting, the Daughter of St. Paul calls herself a “media nun”: A woman religious with a calling to communicate the word of Christ, in any way she can.
And yes, there is a gamer-superior in her convent.
“She has this souped-up computer,” Burns continued. “She gets her own little ministry out there. Once people get to know she’s a nun, they have questions, or they ask for prayers. But you do have to clean up your language when Sister Irene’s out there.”
I imagine Sister Irene sitting in front of a sleek desktop with neon LED backlights, wearing her bright yellow Grado headphones and concentrating intensely on a multi-player RPG. It’s a funny image—there’s such a symbolic disconnect between the stereotypical idea of a nun and a basement-dwelling teenager who loves World of Warcraft. That’s what’s so fascinating about these sisters and their order: They defy stereotypes about who participates in Internet culture, and how.
So how does a nun use social media?

Idris Elba reveals the story behind the name of his production company ‘Green Door’ [x]

Fucking priceless.

Thé man is a god amongst men.

that last frame, he’s so pleased with himself. Mr. Handsome!

I just wrote some short fiction of a scifi pulp hero who’s basically Idris Elba in space. And then I read this.

I regret nothing.
