The Week of April 14-20, 2013 (and then some)

This has been a trying week for me personally, as a Bostonian and otherwise. Thankfully, none of my friends or family have been injured or killed, and the greatest tangible impact the week’s events have had on me personally is the postponement of Boston Comic Con. I will miss the energy and community of that event that I feel we could all use right now, but it is a small price to pay for the public’s safety and the first steps towards achieving justice for the losses and chaos we have gone through. (ETA: Fun Fact: it is sheer coincidence I posted this a mere 5 minutes after he was captured. Didn’t even realize he had been until I scrolled through my dash some.)

But life goes on and comics do too! I’ve missed this feature for more weeks than I’ve actually done it, but I’m going to keep intending to do it and hopefully do it more.

You may want to save this link for later because they’re having malware issues right now, but Comics Should Be Good at Comic Book Resources has revealed the audience-chosen Greatest Gail Simone Stories Ever Told! Basically all of Secret Six is there, but so are a few arcs of Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Welcome to Tranquility, and her still-uncollected Deadpool run (the Deadpool Classic series is about to catch up to it soon, though.) It’s a fun walk down memory lane and makes me want to reread all of them!

FUN HOME 
Music by Jeanine Tesori 
Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron 
Based on the Alison Bechdel book 
Directed by Sam Gold 
October 1 - November 3, 2013 

From four-time Tony Award-nominated composer Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change) and Tony-nominee Lisa Kron (In The Wake,Well) comes a fresh, daring new musical based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Directed by Sam Gold, FUN HOME is a groundbreaking, world-premiere musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

The musical was developed at the prestigious Sundance Institute’s Theater Lab last year.

Posy Simmonds has reacted to last week’s passing of ex-UK Prime Minister Margaret “Iron Lady” Thatcher with a picture-book style fairytale called "King Ironsides" available over at The Guardian. It’s extremely amusing, even to an American who only really knows Thatcher’s legacy from Meryl Streep’s The Iron Lady and whatever I picked up from the complaints of my LSE poli-sci student friends when I lived in London.

The Paris Review visited Miriam Katin’s studio, where I learned for the first time that she was an animator on one of my all-time favorite TV shows, Daria. She also had this great anecdote about being the oldest person to work at MTV:

I get a phone call, and she says to me, this girl, “This is human resources. You’ve made a mistake on your birthdate.” And I say, “Oh, well, I always make mistakes. What did I do?” And she says, “Well, you wrote you were born in 1942.” I say, “Yes?” So she says, “I’m sure you meant 1982.” “No.” “1972?” “No.” Now she’s getting spooked. I mean, everyone around there is an infant. I say, “Look, let me make it easier for you, I was born in 1942, and I am still alive and working.” She was totally freaked out. It was a such a great story, MTV used it in training sessions.

Bonus Art Thing:

Other Things I Do!

It’s a new season of Mad Men, which means it’s a new season of the Mad World Podcast! With Between the Panels and Geeks of Doom’s William Goodman and #Television editor Tahlia Hein, we discuss the latest episodes and you can listen to it! The usual podcast exhortions apply: Subscribe! Review!

Also, I finally caved and started a personalish Tumblr where I currently post sporadically about other pop culture things, but which will likely soon devolve (or evolve, depending on your perspective) into reblogs of cat gifs.

So I noticed that I actually have 508 followers. I am a bit stunned and overwhelmed because you guys are all just crazy awesome for following someone who basically just puts superheroes in sweaters. This is definitely a milestone and a milestone calls for a celebration of some sort, yes?So this is how this works:
1. Like or reblog this post2. Each person who does the above is listed in numerical order in the notes that follows this post (or at least on my tumblr template it does :)3. I’ll pick 3 numbers at random 4. And the person/tumblr assigned to each of those number will get a nice shiny print of any superladies in sweater I have posted on Tumblr.I’ll announce the number at this same time (give or take) tomorrow that that gives you all 24 hours! Get crackin’! :Dp/s I seriously love you all.

It’s cold outside again, and all I want to do is wear all of Hanie Mohd’s sweaters.  This Poison Ivy is particularly apt as I watch the leaves fall through the window at this Starbucks I’m at. (via Best Art Ever - ComicsAlliance)

Happy birthday Neil Gaiman!@neilhimselfI intended to draw Yvain and Tristan from Stardust, but ended up watching the movie instead and got all gooshy and teary-eyed from the OTP-ness T____T (I swear, that part where she confesses her love to dormouse Tristan gets me everytime).

And her sweater looks so comfy too!

ComicsAlliance has compiled a gallery of Hanie Mohd's Superladies in sweaters, some truly gorgeous designs that are making me long for their fictional warmth as I shiver in my office that hasn't turned on the heat yet.  This Vixen one is my favorite, though the Catwoman one looks the warmest.
