That's not how it went.|
Girl Genius' eighth book, Agatha Heterodyne and the Chapel of Bones, won a Hugo Award in the brand shiny new category of "Best Graphic Story". Huzzah! So, to celebrate, 18 of my favorite pages out of the approx. 126 pages of main story that'll be in that volume.
Since it is the eighth book, there are spoilers of course, and apologies to the dialuppers.

Pete Wisdom and Kitty Pryde: Romance and socio-politics whilst kicking people in the face|
I wish this pairing had lasted longer.
I don't want it back. There's no point trying to recapture past glories, but, damn, did Kitty and Pete sparkle for a while there.
And I just love this sequence from Excalibur #102.

Why isn't Popeye rich?|
From July, 1934, a Sunday page by E.C. Segar. Popeye has survived his first encounter with the Sea Hag and her Goon, and come home with a fortune. Finding treasure is not his usual means of support, when not at sea he's a fighter who normally gets in the ring with an opponent three or four times his since. But over the course of his life, the sailor has sometimes been wealthy. It never lasts, though.
This sequence must have been much more powerful back in 1934, when the Depression meant millions were out of work (the unemployment rate hits 30%), families were homeless, lots of children were trying to sleep with empty stomachs. It was a time before unemployment benefits, welfare (Roosevelt would introduce that), child services, shelters (the few church missions had long been swamped by then), any of that... when you hit hard times, you were on your own. Popeye being rich and impulsively seeing to it that poor families had good food to keep them was as much a wish fulfilment as any super-hero slugging a Nazi spy. And more satisfying.

When Alan Moore Was Crap (Violator Vs. Badrock, Pt 1.)|
I originally said I was going to post Spawn/WildC.A.T.s, surely the nadir of Moore's sub-par Image work, next. But I've decided that I'd rather build up (down?) to it first. So I'll be posting some of the other projects Moore did for Image during the mid-90s that, while not as bad as Spawn/WildC.A.T.s, are still pretty durn bad. Here's Violator Vs. Badrock.
Yes, Alan Moore really wrote this.

Guess who's back... Back again, yes?|
I wasn't much interested in the announcement of a S.W.O.R.D. ongoin, announced at Wizardworld Chicago, despite the presence of Beast and the promise of Lockheed as the team's Wolverine. Until I read this interview.
"And in the first issue, as I needed a bounty hunter for a plot beat..."
I wonder who they could be talking about.
But don't call him a bounty hunter. He's a freelance peace keeping agent, right?
Now can we get a guest slot in Deadpool, pretty please?
