    This Mogwai pumpkin was carved by Trevor Grove of VillaFane Studios. I know Gizmo's a good Mogwai, but that doesn't make this any less terrifying. (Geeks are Sexy)

  5. Walking Dead Creator Robert Kirkman Goes To Prison (On AMC Set) [VIDEO]

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    As someone who had their first comic story published in Womanthology recently, I can relate to what Robert Kirkman is feeling right now at least in a small way. I got to see my story realized in images thanks to Hanie Mohd but I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to see it come together before my eyes in real life. That's what Kirkman got to experience during the last few seasons of AMC's The Walking Dead but even more so during production of Season 3. That's when they started building the prison. No spoilers here except the part about the prison being a set piece, which I guess we already spoiled? Whatever, it's going to be awesome. (via Blastr)

  7. My First Trip To Emerald City Comicon Or, That Time Khal Drogo Recognized Me

    And Fansplosions Abound

    I was lucky enough to attend several comic conventions in 2011, the last being New York Comic Con back in October, which meant I was going through convention withdrawal. Big time. For various reasons I had to scale back on the trips this year so I decided my first convention of 2012 would have to be one I never attended. I decided to make the trip to Seattle, Washington for the 10th annual Emerald City Comicon. And now I'm here to tell you all about it.

  8. Things We Saw Today: Hanie’s Last Sweater Superlady (For Now)

    Things We Saw Today

    You adored her Wonder Woman gown but it was her DC Ladies in Sweaters that originally got everyone talking. Well here's my Womanthology artist Hanie Mohd's last Sweater Superlady, Medusa from Marvel Comics. But don't worry! She writes she's only done, "At least till autumn comes around again." Read on for all the other fabulous things we saw today.

  9. Things We Saw Today: The Avengers’ Alter-Egos

    Things We Saw Today

    The Japanese trailer for The Avengers showed us some fantastic new scenes and once again, Japan has one-uped us. This time with their Avengers poster (at least in my opinion). The U.S. poster was kinda "eh" and had some off-putting scale issues. This one may not be perfect but it does have a really cool concept, showing the team in their "day clothes" and then in their superhero personas. (via MTV) Now, what else did we see today (hint: really cool stuff)...

  10. Review: Womanthology: Heroic

    Review

    Womanthology might no longer be the most successful comics project on Kickstarter (that honor goes to Rich Burlew's recent Order of the Stick project), but for 2011, it was the comics project with the biggest budget, and attracted endorsements and donor prizes from the likes of Neil Gaiman, Jim Lee, Gail Simone, Camilla D'Errico, Devin GraysonCat Staggs and Kevin Smith. The project reached its goal of $25k in less than a day, and wound up earning more than $100k in backer funds to print what was intended to be a small self-published run with the now quite interested IDW, the fifth largest comic publisher in the US. For a project that started as a simple tweet from Renae De Liz and ballooned to a collaboration between more than a hundred female artists, writers, designers and editors, this might be considered enough. With the many faceted goal of showing that there are women in the comics industry, that there are women who read comics, that there are women who want to make comics, and that those three overlapping groups can work together to make more of themselves, that could have been the whole Inspirational Lifetime Movie Story. But today we get the coda on that story: today, Womanthology: Heroic is available in comic stores and book shops around the country, with all proceeds going to GlobalGiving. Here's our review:

  11. Things We Saw Today: Hanie Mohd’s Wonder Woman Gown

    Things We Saw Today

    I admit, I'm terribly biased because Hanie Mohd is my Womanthology artist but I have a pie ready to hit the face of anyone who says this isn't gorgeous. She previously illustrated a stylish, but more casual Wonder Woman dress but decided to draw something more "mature and glamourous" this time around. Please, someone pay her to do an officially licensed clothing and accessories line. We will buy it all. (via Hanie Mohd) Now, let's take a look at what else we saw today...

  13. Things We Fully Endorse: Continuing Award Recognition For Female Comic Creators

    Today in Boobs

    Women and comics, women in comics, women of comics, however you want to look at it, they've been a big topic of discussion over the last year. Several sites (The Mary Sue included) like to spotlight female creators and issues in the industry when at all possible and one blog thinks it's time to reinstate awards for the talented women out there. And yes, this is something we fully endorse.

  14. Womanthology Reigns Queen Over Kickstarter’s 2011 Comics Projects

    Elsewhere on the internet

    I remember when the Womanthology Kickstarter started up, and I thought to myself, "Oh, it'll be safe to make a post about that on Monday, it'll still need help then." only to find that two weekend days later it had nearly reached its goal, with weeks left in the campaign. A preorder of its final published edition is one of my most treasured presents this holiday. Of course, Womanthology may have received the biggest budget, dollar for dollar, but it only exceeded its funding goal by a measly 440%. See which comics rated that level of dedication below on Comics Alliance's whole 2011 Kickstarter chart.

  15. A Non-Comic Book Website Writes About Sexism In Comics

    Not a Misprint

    At The Mary Sue, it's part of our job to talk about women's role in comic books and controversies created therein. Many comic focused websites and blogs do the same but it's not often you see someone outside the comic industry doing it. To our surprise, The Guardian posted an article today titled, "Ker-pow! Women kick back against comic-book sexism." Hit the jump for what they had to say and who they spoke to.

Here are just a few pictures from it, showing the book's wide coverage not just of fiction, but prints, comics tutorials, creator interviews and past creator biographies.

  18. Things We Saw Today: Thor In A Plastic Bag

    Things We Saw Today

    U.K. artist Simon Monk is taking a look at the power of iconic male superheroes through his series of paintings titled "Secret Identity." He writes, "Superheroes are icons of male power and potency whose comic book and film adventures see them engaged in epic battles across the universe, yet these mythic figures have another life as consumer objects to be found in commercial and domestic contexts. Placed in carrier bags and hung on a hook in a domestic space they become recently purchased objects, robbed of the enormous power they wield in their narratives, their dynamic energy stymied. Despite this reduction they remain irresistible in their cartoonish rage and pride.” He's right. Thor looks awesome in a plastic bag. (via Robot 6) What else did we see around the net today?
