THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #7story: KIERON GILLENart / cover: JAMIE MCKELVIE & MATT WILSONJANUARY 21 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50Last year, before The Recurrence, fans gathered from their lonely worlds at RAGNAROCK to wonder whether the gods were really about to return or not. Now, as the next RAGNAROCK approaches, everyone knows things are different. What’s more, there are two gods still to emerge. Will anyone there get “lucky?” Look at us whistle, shuffle feet, and avoid eye contact.

Oh, look at that. New solicitations, and the handsome Woden. See the rest of the January Image Solicitations too.
Special attention must be drawn to the return of my Cursed Richards book, Casanova.
Do I have to rant about Casanova again? I will, nearer the time, but FFS GET IT.

two! two! TWO GREAT COMIX RECOMMENDATIONS IN ONE! ah ah ah!
make that three: jm ken niimura’s henshin, a comic i dug reading in its online serialization last year, gets an english translation in january, too! 2015 starting off righteous, just the way a year should: good lord, gimme some lovin’ with some good comics.

Oh god Ragnarock is the worst and most predictable but most beautiful and most perfect pun and how did I not foresee this. I need to read Casanova too given how much I love Fraction.

Last call for COPRA ROUND ONE! Let your store know that it’s available in the Diamond Previews catalogue, order code OCT141106. 
You know the drill, you GET IT, you’re a big time Copra supporter and I won’t lie — I actually love you for it. I’m not even cheapening the sentiment in order to pad out this message. But do keep in mind, there are millions of other people, stores and fans and friends, who don’t know what a Copra Round One is. Spread that order code around and let’s get this thing out there! 

i managed to con microphoneheartbeats into dropping dosh on this on the strength of my enthusiasm and his love for superheroes and i figure it’s out of character for me to say this but i’d love it if i could claim even one more of you as a willing victim of my saleswoman’s wiles. copra is incredible. it’s bold, it’s wild, and it manages to be both without ever sacrificing a bone-deep dedication to being generically solid comics first and foremost. 
years from now. years from now, i hope more of us will get to look back on this moment and say, like generations past could say about cerebus or bone or strangers in paradise, “wow, i remember when copra was just taking off …” 
this is a good memory. i want to have people - friends - to share it with, come time’s passing.
buy in, motherfuckers.

I have been waiting for Round One to arrive before diving into #13 - 18 but they look beautiful and I can’t wake to read them.

When writers have superheroes ponder these moral quandaries like “is it okay to mindwipe rapists and batman” or “is it okay to build a spy satellite and spy on the justice league” or “is it okay that we launched the hulk in space” or “are we allowed to commit genocide to save our planet?”

the idea is that we as readers are supposed to make a choice about whether or not we can still call these characters heroes

the problem is, in the case of most of these illuminati characters, we’ve already seen them spend years doing horribly evil bullshit like orchestrating orewellian registration acts and cloning gods and banishing people into space and hoarding items of immense cosmic power

so it becomes less of a situation of “can we still consider these characters heroes?” and more of a “if you’re not gonna read up past phil 101 utilitarianism can you just stop, please?”

the only reason these characters are still heroes is because you tell us that they are while they are making these terrible, morally bankrupt choices

this post is forever relevant

more truth.

People think I’m overly critical of marvel movies, because you will rarely catch me talking this much shit about marvel comics (well, that’s not true)

but the thing is that the marvel movies are pretty much the only aspect of Marvel IP anyone at that company pays any attention to

Take Kamala Khan. That character exists because an editor at Marvel said “hey, I think we can take my experiences and bring those to life in a brand new character”

and that’s the same kind of creative infusions that marvel studios needs to stay relvant

The thing is tho, people will say that Guardians of the Galaxy proves Marvel can make any movie they want and people will see it hence, why they should take more risks with, y’know, less white dude leads

but all GotG proved is that it’s not so much characters marvel should be taking risks on, but…
