  5. Games, Comics, and Genre TV Earn GLAAD Award Nominations

    The nominees for the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards were announced today, which recognize works that have "fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives."

    This looks bad.

    Here's some non-compliant advice for comic proprietors everywhere: listing a female creator's work using their husband's name isn't a joke. It's sexist.

  8. Pull it Together: Hawkeye, Lazarus and the Finales of The Wake and Fatale

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull it Together, where the goal isn’t to tell you exactly what comics you should read, but to narrow the field by showing you titles you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours! For special attention this week, I direct you towards Comixology's Guardians of the Galaxy sale, as the second collection of Greg Rucka's Lazarus and the finale of The Wake.

  9. Adam WarRock’s “The Quiet” Is the Best Song About Stopping Time With Orgasms That You Will Hear All Day

    Also, it's a much better title than "Cum World."

    Unless Chip Zdarsky and Matt Fraction write their own song about their Eisner Award-nominated comic book Sex Criminals in the next few hours, of course (which, hey don't put it past them). But in the meantime, our favorite nerd rapper Adam WarRock has the market covered with this surprisingly heartfelt track about sex and relationships.

  10. Stick It to Fred Phelp’s Memory by Buying a Hawkeye or Captain Marvel Shirt

    This is the best reaction to this news that we've seen so far.

    It's hard to know how to feel about the recent passing of Fred Phelps, in no small part because he did a lot of terrible things and was generally (and rightly) seen as an extremely bad person. But, Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick will make things a little easier for you by giving a bunch of their hard-earned comic book money to charity.

  13. Comics Publisher Image Announces New Titles At Image Expo

    My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

    This Thursday marked the second annual Image Expo, held by comics publisher Image in their home city of San Francisco to promote their upcoming books. The event -- a comics-star-studded extravaganza of signings and announcements -- is the only one of its kind in comics publishing, as most publishers continue to use standard comic conventions or the press to announce their new projects. The good news is that there are a lot of awesome-sounding projects coming up. The bad news is that (unsurprisingly) diversity is still a problem in comics.

  14. The Fourth Printing Cover of Sex Criminals Is Even Better in Its Physical Form

    From the writer of "Hawkeye" and the guy who talks to Applebee's on Facebook!

    We've featured Sex Criminals, the Matt Fraction/Chip Zdarsky comic about people who can stop time with their orgasms, as one of the editor's picks for our Geekosystem podcast in the past. That's because it's totally amazing. The first issue is getting a fourth printing, and what they've done with the cover is nothing short of fantastic.

  15. Review: Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s Sex Criminals #1

    Review

    When I initially heard about Sex Criminals I was leery. I understood the basic premise to be two young people who can stop time when they orgasm, and use this power to do crime. Written by Matt Fraction (of Hawkguy fame), the premise seemed intriguing; written by just about any other guy and I’d’ve been certain it’d just be weird softcore shlock. That said, I was still wary as I approached the title—it’s so easy to take any premise dealing with sex and women and go someplace incredibly terrible, largely because that’s the majority of examples we see on a day to day basis. I think it’s safe to say that by and large we don’t have healthy associations with women and sex in this society, so any book where that’s one of the main conceits is going to get a pretty critical side-eye from me. Which is why you gotta believe me when I tell you that Sex Criminals is amazing.

  16. Hawkeye Gets a Potato Jesus Makeover Courtesy of Comic Book Artist David Aja

    En serio, hermano.

    What's that Spanish lady who performed that botched restoration of the Ecce Homo fresco up to these days? That's what David Aja wanted to know on his Twitter a few nights back. Luckily, he decided to follow through on that thought with the help of Hawkeye writer Matt Fraction. I can't look away. It's so beautiful.

  17. Genderswapped The Odyssey In Space. Need We Say More?

    DO WANT

    Matt Fraction, could you get any cooler?

    The author has just announced that he is writing a sci-fi rule 63'd version of  Homer's The Odyssey. Christian Ward will be drawing. The project is called Ody-C, and even though we only have an image of the cover, the description alone is enough to turn some heads.

    WIth any luck we'll get more information soon, but in the mean time, we'll just have to salivate over the prospect of how this awesome concept will manifest. (via Comicsbeat)   Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  18. Make This Happen: Indiegogo Campaign to Create a Nikola Tesla Animated Series

    Two animation and science enthusiasts are trying to make every geek's dreams come true. The guys behind Wood Goblin Studios have an Indiegogo campaign to fund the pilot of a cartoon about Nikola Tesla. To make it even nerdier and more perfect, his sidekick is Mark Twain, and they travel through time battling Thomas Edison, because of course they do. My only question about this cartoon is why doesn't it already exist?
