Have you read it, is it good?

I have read it! It’s mostly setup, but the intro of new characters is superb. Our source of information is FAB, our primary antagonist is terrifying.

Honestly, I feel like this book is what Black Widow is trying to be, from the art and first-person narrative on down: gorgeous, atmospheric, a character story still following the character beats of a genre plot. Except Edmondson’s Black Widow is… bland, and this book pops.

Although art really does make a difference. Noto is attractive, but del Mundo is hugely imaginative and much more interested in metaphor and symbolism in his art that Noto - or, to be fair, any other mainstream comics artist I can think of off-hand. What he’s doing here isn’t quite as zany as the X-Men: Legacy covers, but del Mundo shows the same flexibility of imagination here, even in the interiors.

"I think all of these characters have dark pasts. A lot of us are superheroes that didn’t choose to be. My character is a mercenary to begin with and was sort of put into the Widow program. She’s had a dark past, and she’s just beginning to discover how her past affects her when we see her in “Cap 2.” I think she’s had to dehumanize in a way, obviously, as anyone in that position does just to be able to accomplish the things that she’s had to. But now she’s like, “Wow, I actually have nightmares about this stuff.” She’s starting to realize, Wow, I’m a product of what I’ve done in some way. And I think, in “Avengers 2,” it’s about time that our past comes back to haunt us in some way –- all of us, I think, in one way or another."

Michelle Rodriguez wants you to read LAZARUS.

(Well, actually, I think she wants to play Forever, but, you know, the one could lead to the other…).

Mostly, I’m blogging this because it’s MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ and she likes our book! And that’s reason enough. So there.

Nyah.

 

"I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live– if I’ m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love."

I’m glad you liked Lazarus, it’s one of my favorites. I’d encourage you to give Sex Criminals another couple issues. It’s really good and I think it makes a bit more sense upon a second reading.

I mean, I think I get what’s going on. I don’t think it’s a comprehension problem. I just don’t think I’m up to dealing with the subject matter, specifically not as written by a guy, however good he is (and Fraction on a good day is pretty great).

But yeah, Lazarus, I am all hearts-in-eyes about that book. I have three more issues sitting in Comixology that I’m saving for a rainy day. :)

in the movie a little boy recognises steve at the captain america exhibit. it’s my headcanon that a little girl recognises bucky when he goes to the smithsonian exhibit to find out who he really is

because little girls have heroes too

"You should tie your hair back," a little girl with pitch-black hair says to the Winter Soldier. He stares down at her, silent, but she continues undeterred. "Mommy says that we need to have our hair tied back or we’ll trip over things because we can’t see. She makes me wear these—" She displays her wrist, which is encircled by a rainbow of different hair bands. "—because mine keep falling out. You can’t fight evil if you can’t see it. I want to be a police officer when I grow up. Are you a…"

She trails off, her eyes steadily getting bigger. They dart to the large digital image of James Buchanan Barnes, then back to his face. The Winter Soldier’s eyes dart, too, over the exits and the crowd and the girl’s distracted mother—attempting to corral three other black-haired children—before landing back on the girl’s face, where an improbable grin has begun to grow.

"I knew it," she whispers.

The Winter Soldier blinks down at her, thrown off by the delight in her expression. No one is ever happy to see the Soldier.

The girl reins in her wide grin and does her own scan of the crowd. “Don’t worry, I won’t tell. People can’t handle the truth. But I can.” She turns her shining eyes back to the Soldier.

Slowly, very slowly, the Soldier reaches out with hands that have broken, maimed, strangled, shot, stabbed, and ripped apart human flesh. His voice creaks out of him, rusty with disuse. “Can I have a hair tie?”

Without taking her eyes off him, the girl rolls a light blue one out of the rainbow and hands it over.
