The cover to Saga’s first hardcover collection. And some quotes from the creators on just why they decided to give comic book retailers across the country a few more grey hairs after the cover of the series’ first issue and tpb got them so much flak:
Just doubling-down on our breastfeeding stance, aren’t we? – Fiona Staples
Some stores won’t even rack the first volume because the breast-feeding is controversial, but…fuck them. – Brian K. Vaughan
Just fabulous, really. <3
The Beat’s coverage of the SDCC 2014 Saga panel is here.
This is all fantastic.
Fests are mostly lame, and I haven’t enjoyed either of the last two Converge albums, but this was the first Converge song I ever heard, and they played it the every time I saw them for years. Glad to see it back in the lineup this weekend. I had suspected they might revisit some of the older stuff with Brodsky on hand for second guitar.
Very cool. Would mosh.
Destroy the idea that well-written female characters have to be heroes to count as worthwhile. Destroy the idea that female characters can’t be lazy, awkward, self-defeating, superficial, impractical, myopic, manipulative, self-righteous, cruel, selfish, naive, self-centered, or just plain dumb. Destroy the idea that female characters have to be representative of all women. Basically just write more “bad” women, but write them well, that’s all I ask.
embleer: Found a copy used at Sonic Boom in Toronto about two years ago. One of the best “Oh hey, what’s that on the wall? … I *DO* meant that record” scores. If I ever decide to part ways with it, you’ll be the first person I hit up.
I really, really need a copy of this.
my job also gives me a gun and the will to make anyone dead who makes my dick hard

Literally LOLing at “Thanks, Arby’s.”
Emmy nod. Best limited series of the year here.
