Things We Saw Today: Superhero Shirts, With Capes, For Grownups

Things We Saw Today

Well, “grownups,” and I absolutely use those quotation marks to include myself. (Fashionably Geek)

  • Strong Female Protagonist (not to be confused with Meredith Gran, Kate Beaton, and Carly Monardo‘s Strong Female Protagonists) is about a former teenage superheroine whose trying to figure out a better way to save the world… and even that doesn’t do it justice, just go read io9’s article on it and then read the comic itself.

Some hero made this fifteen-foot scarf based on the one worn by the player character of Journey. And now you can really get mad when a giant stone serpent tears half of it off. (Game Informer)

I hate Before Watchmen quite a bit, but I’ll never hate it enough to not love Amanda Conner‘s inclusion of DC’s ad series showcasing its artistic talent. (DC Women Kicking Ass)

I’m tellin’ ya, we could use one of these in my apartment. Balancing the cork on top of the mouth of the bottle is not cutting it. (Neatorama)

And finally, this .gif of an Amazing Spider-Man pop over ad that played during a baseball game has been making the rounds. I also felt it might be relevant to your interests. It’s majestic.

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.
