Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Blue|
In my last post I shared Peter and Mary Jane's first date, now here's Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's take on their early relationship from Spider-Man: Blue. I'm honestly not a fan of the writing (for starters, the "guy holed up in the dark attic making tapes for his dead girlfriend" framing device struck me as creepy rather than bittersweet) but I love how Sale draws MJ.
( where have you been keeping her? )
Walt Simonson Master Post|
Walt Simonson has just about drawn every major character for every major publisher throughout the last thirty-odd years. Best known for his work on Thor, Starslammers, Fantastic Four, Battlestar Galactica and Orion, Simonson’s style has always been lauded as having the energy to rival Jack Kirby’s. But just as his legendary predecessor’s work was seen, all of the subtlety in Simonson’s work is often overlooked. Even in the most frantic piece, Simonson manages give it a quiet sense of characterization.
Hell, he just draws purty, OK?
Since I can easily make thirty different posts based on his covers alone, I’ve posted some of my personal favorite comics and covers by Simonson.

Preview - Hellboy; The Wild Hunt #6|
The Hellboy universe has been surprisingly consistent work, with scenarios and scenes that keep surprisingly good storytelling with great foes that are plucked from all sorts of mythologies and lore. The continuity has been strong and logical. And there aren't horrible ret-cons, the dead stay dead and the stakes keep going up. Hellboy himself looks like he's going to have some more major revelations about the nature of who he is.
And I feel that he should be in part of the S_D image.
Some background.... Hellboy has found himself on the run from the resurrected Queen of Blood and her gathering armies of witches and other supernaturals. Hellboy has found refuge with someone who knows Hellboy's mortal family.
Someone who has been waiting for him for a long time.

Disney to acquire Marvel for $4 billion|
LOS ANGELES – The Walt Disney Co. says it is acquiring Marvel Entertainment Inc. for $4 billion in cash and stock, bringing characters like Iron Man and Spider-Man into the Disney family.
Under the deal, Disney will acquire ownership of 5,000 Marvel characters.
Disney said Monday that Marvel shareholders will receive $30 per share in cash plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share they own.
It said the boards of Disney and Marvel have both approved the transaction, but it requires an antitrust review and the approval of Marvel shareholders.
I'm wondering if this will mean anything for the Gargoyles comic book series that was published by Slave Labor Graphics.

So, I am enjoying the crap of out FLYGIRL, a current side story taking place in supervillain webcoimc PLAN B. Which is great and you should read.
There are bigger and better versions here. Right here!
( Slightly smaller versions here )
One last thing: Back in the day, I had an Avengers comic, maybe an annual, in which the team fought Cupid. Not like, fat baby Cupid, but grown-up demi-god cupid. I think he kidnapped Mockingbird or something. Anyone have the scans? I think it'd be pretty great if he popped up in Hercules sometime.
Edit: forgot a few links, whoops.

Some MA Spider-man cuteness|
Someone posted the scene of Gwen randomly putting hats on Peter, but the last two issues have really been more dedicated to another character. A mutant girl codenamed Chat.
We also get some Emma Frost being... Emma Frost.
