This will be my fourth boss since in two years. I mean it isn’t totally uncommon…but it is still odd.
I am cautiously optimistic about this new boss though. We were both supervisor on the same team for a while, and there were some places he was lacking, but he is very organized. I think he will do well, but I am nervous.
A comiXologist Recommends:
Coleman Engle recommends Lumberjanes #1
Lumberjanes is an awesome new series from BOOM! Studios’ new imprint BOOM! Box that showcases the tremendous talents of numerous up and coming women in the industry.
The story, written by Noelle Stevenson (gingerhaze) and Grace Ellis (ohheygrace) is about a small group of friends and their time at a summer camp for “hardcore lady types”. With this first issue we are introduced to the main members of The Roanoke Cabin: Mal, Molly, April, Ripley and Jo. Out late one night, they come across three-eyed foxes, a cryptic message and an agitated camp counselor…all in a day’s work! While the girls are off getting into trouble, magic and mystery flicker around the panels. It’ll be exciting to see what’s in store for them!
The artwork is done by Brooke Allen (brookeallen) whose incredible sense of line weight, storytelling and attention to detail make each page a knockout. Allen (who put out a book called A Home For Mr. Easter with NBM, which can be downloaded on comiXology) is no stranger to cartooning, taking inspiration from Blutch, Akira Toriyama, and Jeff Smith and creating her own engaging and stellar worlds.
Adding to the charm of each page are beautiful colors by Maarta Laiho and hand lettering by Aubrey Aiese. The marriage of Allen’s art, Laiho’s colors and Aiese’s bubbly, playful words seems effortless.
If this first issue is telling of how the series is going to be, we should all be super stoked to see more! Like, SUPER stoked!

I am hoping to pick up two more copies tomorrow when Carl gets our comics. One for the cut out at the back and one for a friend!

that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o’er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o’er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.
WHAT THE HELL, this girl reveals to her sisters that she is in a relationship with their cousin, first cousin…
And they are totally fine with it, they are just like “Well you can’t have kids.”
I guess it is just more common there.
Did you know? It’s your RIGHT to access reproductive healthcare without being intimidated or terrorized.
People need to see this.
It is illegal to willingly harass and intimidate a person on purpose, even if you are doing it outside of an abortion clinic. Remember this, pro-lifers. You can and will be charged. <3
