Things We Saw Today: The Princess Who Saved Herself

Things We Saw Today


If Jonathan Coulton and Greg Pak‘s Kickstarter gets $7k more dollars, they’ll make a comic for kids based on Coulton’s song “The Princess Who Saved Herself,” which is about a princess who convinces all the monsters that threaten her to join her rock band, as a stretch goal. I’ll just leave a link to it here. (MTV Geek, Youtube, Kickstarter)

Amy Reeder’s got a new comic project, and you can help Kickstart it here.

  • Interesting: The bright plumage of male birds might be hormonally suppressed in females, which is why when some lady birds pass their fertile age, they get very colorful. (io9)
  • Star Trek Into Darkness has been moved up a day, to premiere at midnight on a Wednesday. This is not always a good thing for movies, but on the other hand, we get to find out what it means that much sooner. (The LA Times)

GTFO is a funded Kickstarter project, but as a documentary on sexism in the video games community, you might be interested in knowing it exists, anyway.

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.
