I’m still trying to come to terms with growing up, which is difficult when everyone else is. It’s probably gonna take me a while longer to actually embrace adulthood.
Anyhoo, hope you all have a happy holiday!
PS I actually do enjoy receiving the family photo cards — but maybe not the whole madness of finding gifts. I’m pretty terrible at it.

It’s beyond unhealthy at this point
FYI The 0:48 mark is the highlight for me.

I knew that I would enjoy reading Animal Crackers because it’s by one of my all-time fave comic writer/artist Gene Luen Yang. I just didn’t realize just how much I would like it. The writing is so damn…thoughtful.
The work here precedes American Born Chinese. The skill Gene has in weaving a story and making you fall in love with his characters — flaws and all — in just a few panels is as present here as in American Born Chinese. I am simply in awe.
This one handy volume collects Gordon Yamamoto and the King of the Geeks and Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order, my first two graphic novels. Gordon Yamamoto started off as a 28-page comic that I self-published with a grant from the Xeric Foundation. Loyola Chin was originally published as mini-comics. It’s great to see them in square-bound format. I added a 12-page bonus feature where I talk about making comics, publishing comics, and the awesomeness of comics. READ MORE >
On a side note, my greatest disappointment while I was at San Diego Comic Con this year was not meeting Gene. I tried, but didn’t try hard enough since I didn’t realize that he’d probably be making appearances at other booths as well. So, this was as close as I was able to get to him:

Thanks, Mom, for the inspiration.
And how can you ever say no to home-cooked tomato and eggs with a heaping bowl of rice? That will quell any feelings of anger or hurt

One of the variant covers for Spider-Woman issue 1 is the reason why I was so turned off from DC/Marvel and other superhero comic books initially. I mean, splayed butt cheeks at the ready was an image that Marvel Comics was OK with for Spider-Woman (or any other female for that matter)? Who was at that creative meeting? Seriously.
How many days did we go without an incident like this?
Is it safe to say things have been OK recently as far as art is concerned in the comic book industry? At the very least, I had to think pretty hard to come up with the last incident of misogynistic art. So that’s… something. I mean, there’s art you personally might consider too sexualized in general, but there’s that other level of comic book hell reserved for The Hawkeye Initiative-type stuff or otherwise absurd art.
Yesterday, Comic Book Resources posted exclusive November solicits from Marvel Comics, which included the anticipated Spider-Woman #1. The piece included this variant cover by Milo Manara.
For more about this butt-tastic fiasco, head on over to The Mary Sue.
And just to further the point a bit — Spider-Man would’ve looked so fierce in the same pose, no?
