Things We Saw Today: Marceline the Munny Queen

Things We Saw Today

A sweet Marceline figure from Etsy user SciurusCustoms. They’ve also got a Korra and a few other nerdy munnies you might dig. 

  • Sexy Loki, Queer Tricksters, and the Problem with LGBT Villains (via Comics Alliance)
  • A nice interview with Trina Robbins over at Comic Book Resources about her upcoming Fantagraphics book, Pretty In Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013.
  • Heidi MacDonald writes “Comics have hit puberty…and it’s not pretty” over at The Beat. It covers some recent events in the comic industry concerning creator Tess Fowler naming a comics professional who harassed her (and possibly others) and calling on all comics professionals, men and women, to work to keep harassment from being a dirty industry secret.

OMG THE CUTE! Fernanda Abarca Cakes has even more How to Train Your Dragon-inspire baked goods. (via That’s Nerdalicious)

  • How Using Sexy Female Avatars in Video Games Changes Women (via Time.com)
  • R.I.P. Shirley Mitchell, last surviving adult cast member of I Love Lucy (via AV Club)
  • Blue Peter and CBBC would like children (ages 6-15) to design a new sonic device for Doctor Who characters either Strax, Madame Vastra or Jenny. The winning designer will get to go to the set of the show and see their sonic-whatever featured in an episode! Find out more here.
