I get the impression these are perfectly normal birds in the UK, but they're quite a novelty to me. Those fancy collars! There were three in the yard of the pub we stayed in, but they wouldn't sit still to be photographed. Here's one from the walk into town:

Mikel [Janin] is widely known for drawing the sexiest men in comics. The idea of doing a buffer, sexier Riddler — I like that. I think he’s a reflection of Batman and I think of him like a scary, evil Batman. Like Bruce Wayne without a conscience. -- Tom King

Short-eared owl
[Grainy photo of a short-eared tawny owl sitting on a lawn]

I know this isn't the greatest photo of all time. In my defense, I did take it from behind a dusty windowpane in an upstairs bedroom where I was crouched breathlessly lest I frighten it off.

There've long been barn owls living at my partner's parents' home in rural Norfolk, but I'd never seen any other type of owl there. I was surprised, therefore, to see this tawny owl (h/t to [personal profile] shapinglight for corrected identification) sitting on their lawn at dusk a couple of weeks ago. I worked out that it was watching a group of four partridges who were pecking through the pebbles in the drive, closer to the house. They seemed a rather optimistic target, given that the owl wasn't much bigger than they were.

The owl flew off and returned to the lawn several times whilst I watched, but never made a move on the partridges, who eventually moved onto the roof of the house and over to the other side.

There had been considerable speculation for some time as to the state of the longest-running North American licensed comic book ever since January, but now it's official - the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series has ended, at least in its current form, and likely moving to a new publisher.

I wasn't intending on posting anything really regarding Secret Empire. After Civil War II: Enchanted Christmas, I was pretty done with Marvel events. However, there was just one moment from Secret Empire that grabbed my attention, because its a point that I constantly brought up a while back about how Spencer treated two certain characters...

Also, yes, I am in the page limit. 1/3 left over.

If I told you ‘Anyone could die, honest!’... well, you wouldn't believe me. It'd be just more high stakes, like in every issue of every cape comic ever. But if I tell you that someone will die, that it's prophesied, baked in, suddenly there really are high stakes. One of these people is going to go to the far shore and not come back. And you're going to fall in love with all of these characters, so it's going to matter when it happens. -- Al Ewing

Sisters of Sorrow #1

[personal profile] history79 posting in [community profile] scans_daily



"I really love to fuck with genre. With Sisters of Sorrow we’ve created what presumably just looks like high camp and kickass action, but right below the surface, we reveal three-dimensional women, struggling with real-life abuse and the scars of deep emotional pain. At its core, weaved in and out of the action-packed narrative and amazing artwork, Sisters of Sorrow is about abused women empowering themselves. We actually get to tell stories that matter. Like with Sons of Anarchy, it might be the flash of guns and leather that entice you to show up, but it’s the characters and their struggle that keeps you coming back."

- Kurt Sutter

I'm here to rec Guardians of the Galaxy this month! Most of my recs will contain spoilers for GotG2, though I'll try to avoid or cut anything REALLY spoilery in the description.

Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Nebula & Kraglin Obfonteri
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: sketch
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: CaptBexx on Deviantart | CaptBexx on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: This is an energetic piece that focuses on a minor character interaction in the movie and takes it to a playful conclusion. The simple but expressive sketchy/cartoony style works beautifully for the light subject matter.

The killer who was'd tracked the vigilante who'd been to Santa Monica.

The latter sat there, watching the former pull the trigger. Then he moved.

The shot went askew, off his arm.

The Nobody knocked him aside.

" So there's still a little fight left in you, Mr. Hettinger. Good. "

" What- what did you call me? "

" I followed your little hero's journey across the country.

" Couldn't help yourself, could you, Greg?

" Well guess what.

" I'm about to undo all of that. "

" Do I know you? "

" No. Not really. But a lot of people are going to die unless you stop me. "

" Who the hell are you? "

" Wouldn't you like to know. "

The Nobody turned and walked away.

Greg, having heard police sirens approaching the scene of the commotion he'd been in, went the same way in another direction.

He went downtown. )
