Wishing Tim Curry a quick recovery!
The 67-year-old actor suffered the stroke at his Los Angeles homeand while there were few details available, sources close to the actor denied that the stroke has impaired his ability to speak and his longtime agent, Marcia Hurwitz, told the U.K. paper, “Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor.”

Kevin Wada, the guy behind the X-Men Opera piece that Seb had done for me last year (in a birthday present that will never be topped, ever), has FINALLY done an official variant cover for X-MEN.
This is Downton Abbey inspired, and it’s just the best. I will be bugging all of my Tennessee friends to go to Hastings and get one for me.
OH HEY I NEED THIS ON MY WALL RIGHT NOW HOLY FUCK.
If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.
If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.
If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.
If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.
If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.
Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists. —
A Short Post on Rape Prevention (via brute-reason)
Be honest: You don’t give a shit about rape victims.
You don’t fucking care.
You make excuses for the rapists all the damn time.
This is about policing women’s bodies and telling them to just ‘shut up and stop complaining about your rape because you deserved it’
gammacazador asked: I think he is only co-writing the issue though. Gage is working on another Marvel book, so we don't have to worry about him leaving.
The way the solits read, it looks like Gage is writing #14 and Hopeless picks back up for the season wrap-up with #15. What other book is Gage doing regularly right now? I know he had some Spidey-stuff he was finishing up, but didn’t think he had anything in queue after that.
Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Decision by the Boy Scouts of America -
AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the vote to admit openly gay Boy Scouts:
The Boys Scouts of America has been built upon the values of faith and family for more than 100 years and today’s decision contradicts generations of tradition in the name of political correctness. While I will always cherish my time as a scout and the life lessons I learned, I am greatly disappointed with this decision.
That’s right, friends.
Rick Perry issued a press release to express his disappointment that the Boy Scouts of America have decided that anyone can be a Boy Scout. Clearly, he wouldn’t have been able to learn valuable life lessons if gay kids were around back when he was Scout.
It’s a shame the guy wasn’t an elected official when all Boy Scout councils finally decided to allow African-American boys to join the organization back in the 1940s; then he could have expressed his disappointment with that political correct decision too.
This is a pretty short press release, but it definitely could have been made shorter; here’s my first attempt at editing:
AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement: “I’m a monumental horse’s ass.”
The general sentiment is pretty close, I’d say.

I think he’s only doing #14, with Hank Pym looking for the missing kids. Gage’s Pym is the only one I’ve had any interest in, and I’m hoping we’ll get to see some of the kids that were spared Hopeless’ interest helping out.Yeah me too. I might pick up his first issue, but I’m not sure. I do hope he turns the book around though, and it sells well enough that he could continue working with Marvel(on a better book.)
I’m sad, but I loved Gage’s writing. I trust him a lot more since he created most of the characters and wrote them pretty well for about 40 issues.Agreed. I won’t pick this up full price, but I’ll consider getting it digitally when it drops or if there’s a sale.
