Things We Saw Today: Tilda Swinton and Chris Evans Looking Pointy and Dirty, Respectively, in Snowpiercer

  • You know those Barbie birthday sets? The ones with cups, plates, stickers, etc. that a lot of little kids want for their parties? It turns out that they feature the blonde-haired-blue-eyed version of Barbie pretty much exclusively, with non-white Barbies relegated to “near-invisible cameos.” The Frisky tells us about 15 mothers of children of color who are trying to get Mattel to add some diversity already.

    2000AD got the Muslim Judge a short while back. Hamida was in one of the 17XX Progs (I forget the exact prog numbers), which is explained in the introduction, but it’s safe to say she was introduced in 2012 at the latest (All of this year’s Progs have been numbered 18XX – the latest was 1826).

    Glad to see Dredd finally get a female author, though, and having read the first part of the story, it should be good.
