I wish I had some kind of artistic skills. Ianto would have looked badass with a jetpack.

I picked up my comic books yesterday, for the first time in about two months. I had quite the stack, and I really enjoyed them. I culled some of the crap from my pull list, and there's been a marked improvement in a couple of the titles I was beginning to get impatient with.

I got the new Torchwood comic, but I haven't read it yet because I have to read them in alphabetical order. It's a thing. I'll get to it tonight, probably. (I also got the new Torchwood mag, so I can finally read the second half of Shrouded. We'll see how that goes, too.)

I'm really disgustingly happy to have Birds of Prey back, fugly-ass filler art aside (seriously, Benes? sleep on the job much?) and Fables is continuing to rock, since I've finally swallowed my pride and started reading it again after Bill Willingham pissed me off. I need to just stop reading creator interviews.

I have thoughts on X-Factor regarding characterization, relationships, the probability of someone getting knocked up every single time they have sex, and a sort of backwards comparison of the Rictor/Shatterstar relationship to the Jack/Ianto relationship. It really needs its own post.

Ever in a mood where you feel like you're looking for a fight? I'm in one of those moods. It probably means I should steer clear of the internet for a day, but... *shrug*

I'm going to hit something that doesn't hit back. Like my longbox.

ETA: Spoilery for DC Comics, specifically Cry for Justice.

Dear DC Comics,

I wish I knew how to quit you, because maybe then my blood pressure would go down... )

I <3 Y: The Last Man. Its final issue holds the runner-up position for comic-book-induced crying jags (Teen Titans v. 3 #20 holds the gold there...) and I love pretty much everything Brian K Vaughan's done. Y also made me fall in love with Pia Guerra, whose style of art was simple but expressive as all hell. Yorick was never quite Yorick unless he was illustrated by Guerra.

Unfortunately she disappeared into the ether after that final issue. I saw her at Comic Con 2008, where she rocked at what was essentially a Women of Geek panel. Lucy Lawless dominated, buuuut I was mostly there for Pia Guerra. And it's Lucy Lawless, so I forgive her.

HOWEVER! Ms Guerra has resurfaced. Illustrating a Ianto comic penned by Gareth David Lloyd.

I might have screamed when I discovered this.

First page is here.

She draws Ianto's face awesome. Doesn't she draw Ianto's face awesome? The layout is very Y. This is not bad. My pull list is still mourning its loss.


So, yes anyways. Totes buying the next issue of Torchwood magazine. Not out for a month. First time I'll have bought any kind of fanmag... they're kind of lame as a general rule. I made fun of my friend who bought a Supernatural fanmag mercilessly. Which means I'll have to hide this one carefully. :)

I also love Pia Guerra because 355 is the biggest badass ever. I want to be her when I grow up.

ETA: Pia Guerra has been the artist on the recent Doctor Who comics! HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS!?!?!@?! must*twitch*purchase...

1. Dear Claire's: stainless steel my ass. My ears are green.

2. My fic for [ profile] tw_lucky_7 is killing me. It just sits there and stares at me with it's big, clich├ęd eyes, and begs for me to crumple it up and toss it. This is looking like it might be my skip week.

3. I've discovered I'm much more productive when I write by hand. Much harder to backspace or just click "don't save". This is why I have so many notebooks floating around my living room.

4. That said, I let my bff take my fic notebook home with her to peruse overnight and just now remembered...

5. ... that I had a couple of [ profile] touchyerwood prompts in there. One completed and posted, two that're half-finished because I got embarassed and chickened out, but what's there is pretty... uh... yeah. I'm procrastinating on going to get it back, because the walk of shame becomes proportionally more epic depending on how many of her roommates are home.

6. Reading Joe Hill's Locke and Key comics. Holy awesome, Batman. This is the kind of comic I've missed reading. There has just been so much suck recently.

7. Speaking of comics, there should be a Torchwood/Birds of Prey crossover. Seriously. Oracle v. Tosh. I'd love to read that.

8. Pizza, redheaded sluts, TW marathon last night = epic win. Much needed girl time.
