It was good to read a Gillen work where hadn't let his recent success rush to his head, forcing him to produce pish (-cough- Young Avengers), Wicked and Divine was pretty damn good.

[up][up] It's a shame you weren't able to pick it up yet. But it's pretty great that it sold out. I hope that's a sign of success to come, because it's great.

[up] Young Avengers was awesome. Anyone who says otherwise is crazy.

Gene Luen Yang & Sonny Liew bring us The Shadow Hero, the story of the Green Turtle. An obscure Golden Age character, he may have been the first Chinese-American superhero. His origin was never revealed—until now! http://www.skjam.com/2014/07/26/comic-book-review-the-shadow-hero/

Random question.

Who is the most powerful ice using character in comics?

It's just that I've never seen a very powerful ice users in general, aside from Aokiji from One Piece and Elsa from Frozen.

If not the most powerful, who are some characters who uses ice in really creative ways? The only ice-using character I can think of is Iceman and, well, the only thing I can think of is him using ice as a skateboard rink.

Iceman actually is ridiculously powerful. He can create and manipulate large numbers of ice clones at a time. In the Age of Apocalypse, he was actually able to teleport a group of people through his powers, though it's not explained well how he did it, and he hasn't done it in the 616 comics. He has managed to survive as a severed head, and at one point was able to reform himself after being reduced to vapour.

And that's not counting him just making really big shit out of ice.

Iceman does more than that, he's at the same power level as Magneto or Professor X, but he's not a Green Lantern, he's not gonna make an ice baseball glove or something.

Of course, don't you know anything about ALCHEMY?!- Twin clones of Ivan the Great

Yeah, Iceman is to ice what Magneto is to Magnetism. He has suffered from unimaginative writers at times, though.

Started reading the "High Society" arc of Cerebus The Aardvark. My first time reading the series at all, but I kinda like it. Although, due to the misogyny and views on religion that come up later, I doubt I'll read much more after this.

Anyone know anything about a comic writer named Kate Leth?

It seems that we don't really have a Tropes page on her...

CBR is doing a poll of the Top 50 Female Comic Creators. Which is really cool. Female writers and artists seldom really get the respect and appreciation they deserve. They're never given high-profile books at the Big Two, so they never get much attention from the average reader. Best Creator lists end up dominated pretty much solely by men - with maybe a single woman - because men are the only ones who get to create on a large scale.

So a poll that actually focuses on the women is nice to see. There are so many immensely talented women in comics, and I really think it's important to highlight them, so people realize that they're there, and start giving them more of a chance.

that and there weren't a lot of women in the industry when it started. a lot of people on the best creator lists are from the olden days and invented/popularized a lot of stuff we see now.

Let me think...I know that the woman who wrote The Talented Mr.Ripley (Patricia Highsmith?) worked as a writer for The Black Terror for awhile back in the '40's. Ramona Fradon is a true great, having worked on Metamorpho (an underrated gem) and Aquaman, before taking over the comic strip Brenda Starr. A lot of Golden Age colorists and letterers were women.

Erik Larsen went on Twitter yesterday to criticize the recent trend of giving women practical costumes. KSD's response was, "Keep talking, asshole." I love KSD. One of the costumes he bashed was Ms. Marvel's, which he called "hideous, unflattering, not distinctive, unnecessarily cumbersome, awkward and ugly." Well, I suppose Larsen is an expert in ugly and non-distinctive costume designs. He has a long history of horrible costume designs, and the most distinctive design he ever came up with in his career was "Hulk with a head-fin."

The Outhouse has decided to help him. They drew up some designs for Savage Dragon with a less practical costume.

I just think he's a mediocre artist with a poor sense of design. Also, considering his most famous character - arguably his only famous character - wears a very practical police uniform, his complaint about practical costumes is a bit silly.

The Comics Should Be Good blog on CBR has started a voter decided list of the top 50 woman (25 artists and 25 writers) who have worked in comics. I think this is a great idea since female comic book creators don't often get as much attention as they should. I wonder if Louise Simonson is going to end up on the list.

[up] There'll probably be a few underground or alternative comics people in there, I betcha. At least if the people there know their stuff...

Also, anyone else heard that they brought Howard The Duck back?

[up] The first 5 artists and writers have been revealed and it does look like they are going to include underground stuff. Hell, one of them was Rumiko Takahashi, a manga artist! I don't remember a manga creator ever being put on CSBG's top whatever lists before.
