John's assorted reblogs

Ms Marvel recently went to its sixth printing, a rare accomplishment in comics today.

But chatting with Marvel executives at San Diego Comic Con I discovered more. That it sells more in digital than print, and that includes the first issue.

Relevant to something I was wondering about yesterday. (From here.)

Oh, interesting.

(via postcardsfromspace)

and yet there are STILL some people out there who haven’t read it yet!  If you’re one of them, go get yourself a copy of Ms. Marvel #1!  You won’t regret it.

Colored Diana version 2! Version 1
This time, her bracelets are silver, and I put a red star on her crown. 
Like I said before, I thought Diana needed a little bit more color. Also because I think Wonder Woman without colors is a Xena wannabe.
Version 1: Gold bracelets, gold crown.
Version 2: Silver bracelets, red star and gold crown.
Version 3: New 52 Recolor

Hey! Somebody fixed my biggest problem with the movie (sort of!)

7, 8, and 9 are pretty important, yo. Because sometimes you feel like this dog.

Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Okay, the heels are weird.

But I am pretty encouraged. This looks like a Wonder Woman who kicks ass.

It is SO important to SO many people that they get this right. I hope they understand the responsibility they have to people, not just women, all over the world.

Speaking of life action Wonder Woman costumes… (full view here on dcwomenkickingass, thanks athelind for submitting the link to us!)

Well, that definitely could have been worse. Not surprisingly, she was still given a boobplate (even though it’s possible to make it better).
At least it’s not much less reasonable than Lady Sif's (who set the standard for myth-based warrior women armor in superhero movies).

As Ms. Simone mentions, the high heels are… questionable. To me, moreso than the boobs. Those look hella uncomfortable!
The only positive about it, they’re on platform/wedge soles, so (unlike some other example) there’s less chance of breaking a heel while running around in such footwear… Won’t help against calluses, though!

Looking those boots I thought about the hideous things that Carrie Fisher had to wear in order to mitigate the height difference between her and Harrison Ford while shooting Star Wars.

But Gal is only only three inches shorter than Henry Cavill (Superman) who’s two and a half inches shorter than Ben Affleck (Batman).  So either Wonder Woman better tower over Superman… or everyone other than Ben better be borrowing Robert Downey Jr’s shoes.

On a side note, littlechinesedoll did a quick recolour which, while perhaps too bright, really helps make the costume look more like Wonder Woman and less like Xena.

(9:00 AM) Oh, I’ll just catch up on my social networks, and then I can start working on that chapter I’m writing!

(3:00 PM) Allright, I think that’s everything … but now I’m too tired to work on stuff.

It really upset me that Free! Hardly got any recognition at MTV’s Fandom Awards. I didn’t really expect Free! to win (Supernatural is clearly more of a powerhouse), but I at least wish that they would have given it some plausible screen time.

It also slightly pisses me off that SOME of the Veroncia Mars fandom are upset that people are saying that they shouldn’t have won. I know you all raised money to get a movie and I’m really impressed, but you really can’t be that surprised. Yes the hate you are getting is awful but you can’t be mad that no one expected you to win.

"Shut up! Veronica Mars is awesome!"

— So is Free! But I’m sure most of you haven’t even looked it up just like a lot of people have failed to look up Veronica Mars. Most of you are just as at fault.

"Y’all just hatin’! We worked hard for our movie!"

— No we are just thoroughly upset that we failed to get any recognition for OUR hard work! Just like you, we’ve worked hard to get Free! into production! Whereas you’ve had a series and enjoyed it, we had to build our series up from the ground with just a light novel series and a 30 second commercial! How easy do you think that is taking into account that Kyoto Animation is in JAPAN and had a very slim chance of seeing our support!? How disheartened do you think you’d feel if you were in our situation?

"Just let Veronica Mars have this one."

— The same can be said about the anime community to be perfectly honest and if you are ignoring that please go sit down. Anime isn’t very accepted in America. Toonami is showed in the middle of the night and the wee hours of the morning not during normal airing hours and prime time slots. In order to watch it you have to go to online streaming websites. People are criticized and teased because they like “cartoons for children” or “perverted and twisted Japanese porno”. Anime is not completely for children. I dare you to show your child Higurashi or Mirai Nikki and see if they don’t have nightmares. Anime is not all porn. Take it from someone who’s been teased for these very reasons, it does not feel good! The Fandom Awards was the anime community’s chance to get some proper good publicity and they completely glossed over us which is very disrespectful. So we deserved to win just as much as you did. You’re fandom was glorified and praised while others were dragged through the mud and forgotten so excuse you if people are a little offended by that.

In short, you are not the only fandom that “deserved” to win so stop saying that. Everyone works for their fandom. For all we know Free! Probably did win and they decided to trash it because WE AMERICA WE BETTER! So Veronica Mars fandom keep that in mind before you start “yeah we beat supernatural and free! Fuck yeah!”

I’m not mad no one expected Veronica Mars to win.

I’m a little miffed that other fandoms are shitting on my show and saying we shouldn’t have won.

I’m not mad that other people are sad their shows/fandoms didn’t win, or didn’t get the attention they deserve. 

I’m mad that other people are pissing on my show and my fandom because we did win

I’m not mad that people want recognition for the things and shows and genres they love.

I’m getting pissed off that other people are saying that my show and my fandom doesn’t deserve the recognition it is getting.

There’s a difference between being sad your thing didn’t win, and shitting on mine. There’s a difference between feeling like your show and fandom is the best and insinuating that mine only got the award because of bias or something other than us working our butts off for it.

I’m not going to be mad when someone says we shouldn’t have won, because damn it we did deserve to and - no matter how sore the losers are - we did. But to say that VMars fans shouldn’t be upset by this weird backlash we’re getting hit by currently? And the insinuations that we didn’t really win, it was just handed to us because of some kind of bias?

Yeah, I can see fighting back against that.

Because Veronica Mars is awesome. Because we do deserve this. Because we did work hard for our movie. 

And that doesn’t mean that other shows aren’t awesome and that other fans don’t deserve it or didn’t work hard.

It just means we did, and we won. And even me, with my hippie parents and my cooperative board games, understand that at the end of a competition there is a winner and that it is shitty to hate on that person simply for winning. That’s what the world likes to term “bad sportsmanship”.

This is a celebration of Veronica Mars, and I’d really like it if people would stop pissing in our cheerios.

I don’t have the same “don’t tag your hate” mentality as a lot of people on tumblr do, but I do have a ‘if the only reason why you’re hating on this thing is because it beat your thing in an on-line competition, maybe don’t harsh those others fans’ vibe’ mentality.

And if a poster hates the thing specifically for that reason, and in public, maybe understand why the fandom that should be spending its time celebrating what is at most a meager victory is upset.

Don’t fuck with Petpluto, yo. 

I get that Free! fans also accomplished a lot with comparatively little resources, but this was not “the MTV try-hard awards, where the fans who worked the hardest get a trophy.” It was “the MTV popularity contest, where the fans who yelled the loudest & most often get a trophy.”

Also, I was almost willing to defend this as the normal “my team didn’t win so I’m mad at the other teams” griping that is so common in the sportsball world, until it got to the conspiracy theory part at the end. Do Free! fans really think MTV would have fixed the votes? and if so, to what end? Does rigging the election so Veronica Mars wins somehow make them more money? Or was this some sort of Mean Girls-level power play by the MTV higher-ups, who are playing favorites and like VMars better than its competitors?
