Heard a rumor today that I was joining the cast of The Walking Dead once fringe was over. I didn’t start the rumor but I would love to participate in it. I would also like to officially start the rumor that I am in talks to star as Agent 355 in Y the Last Man. None of this is true, but all of it could be…
If we can’t get Traci Thoms as 355, Jasika Nicole is officially my #2 choice!

Monica Breen And Alison Schapker’s Pulp For DC Comics
Monica Breen and Alison Schapker, exec producers on Fringe, have had another project, the heightened-reality crime drama called Pulp, in the works for a while, to be produced as a TV show by Fringe co-creator JJ Abrams. It was developed as a pilot but never filmed.
Deadline reports, as part of a story about their Fringe deal being renewed for another series, that Pulp may now be published as a comic book series or graphic novel from DC Comics.
Maybe Jasika Nicole could draw it!

This is a commissioned comic I wrote and drew for an awesome woman I was put in touch with who is putting together a book for queer youth. She is compiling a series of stories by adult writers/visual artists/poets addressing what they would say to their younger selves if they had the chance to communicate with them in some way. I spoke to a few people about the project, asked them how they would envision talking to their younger selves and what they would say to them, and how they thought their younger selves would react. Thanks to Kevin R. Free, Tegan Quin, Fred Topel and of course Claire for all the insight into your own experiences!
BRB crying ALL THE CREYS!
What I Learned From Black History Month
- Joan Cooper Bacchus Maynard was a boss. She was an art director at McGraw-Hill in the ’60s, and thus had a more “respectable” job than Jack Kirby ever did. She cared deeply about black history and making sure children knew it, both by writing and drawing for Golden Legacy biographical comics and by spearheading the preservation of Weeksville. And I am 99% sure that she contributed to the only issue of All-Negro Comics in 1947 (and I have e-mailed the History Detectives to help me close that gap— fingers crossed!)
- Hang on a minute— Alitha Martinez? You mean, the artist on The Mask in the Iron Man, one of my favorite Iron Man arcs? FANTASTIC. (BTW, why doesn’t she get more work? Get on that, oh followers of mine in the biz!)
- So, I finally started reading Templar, Arizona. OMG you guys, I really don’t have the time to get sucked into a long-narrative webcomic, but the first arc is sooo good. And dammit, so is SPQR Blues! I am never going to get any sleep again.
- Felicia D. Henderson is also a boss. Her career is amazing, and I really really hope she gets that Girl Genius movie made. And I will be looking forward to her run on Static! (Only wish Dwayne McDuffie was going to be around to read it too ;_;)
- JASIKA NICOLE MAKES ADORABLE COMICS ABOUT DRINKING WINE OUT OF TEACUPS WITH KANYE.
- 28 days is really too short to celebrate all of these women, and the ones I didn’t even get to. Not to mention, how many don’t even have wiki pages yet. But that is the point of the month— to learn about the accomplishments of African-Americans, and also the rest of the diaspora, to reflect on (as someone put it on Awesome Shit Women Did) what’s gotten left out of the textbooks, and to go forth with new awareness of the world we live in. I’ll be damned if that list doesn’t get filled out by next year (and of course, you all can help!), and I would love to see it grow— either by new talent or rediscovery of creators past.
Next up: Women’s History Month! Gee, I hope I can think of something to do there.
Tales from the Fringe TP, co-written by Christine Lavaf, Kristin Cantrell, Danielle Dispaltro, Kim Cavyan with art by Fiona Staples.
(I also recall an interview where Jasika Nicole said she did a sketch of the cast for a Fringe comic, but I don’t know if it’s this one or the last one)
this is how hospitable i would be if kanye west were to come to my house.
ASDFGJK CVOSWJDSNHLOF!!!! Jasika Nicole has a tumblr?!! And she draws comics?? About KANYE DRINKING WINE FROM TEACUPS?!?!
BTW, go watch Fringe on Hulu so it doesn’t get cancelled and she gets to keep her job. But if it does get cancelled, maybe she can draw comics the whole time. (Or paint or knit— check out her tumblr. she’s a very talented lady) And if you’re possibly going to Emerald City Comic Con, go say hi to her and buy some of her art!
