Things We Saw Today: Black Widow as Botticelli’s Venus

Things We Saw Today

A bit skinnier than I remember Venus, but I hear those skintight catsuits aren’t exactly roomy. (So Geek Chic)

It’s a TARDIS watch, and presumably in addition to telling you the time, it also tells you your relative dimension in space. (Fashionably Geek)

io9 has a round up of some seriously weird Mardi Gras floats from 1873, that are trying to poke fun at the then-even-more-controversial-than-it-is-now Theory of Evolution.

io9 also has an exclusive chapter from a genderswapped version of the¬†John Carter of Mars novels, and it’s pretty sweet.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
