Perhaps you should read what I have here written. Or perhaps you shouldn't or won't. I'm sorry if that's my fault.

Can anyone tell me who this comedian is?

I haven’t seen this set but it looks like Amy Schumer.

I did a run on X-Men Legacy last year. It kind of flew under the radar. It wasn’t like other X-comics, it freaked a few people out and it struggled to get the attention it needed to make “different” transition from a handicap into a Good Thing.

It had its loyal fans throughout and I adore them forever, but the comics press seemed kinda mystified by its dissimilarity to what went before, and turned up their noses at the first issues. Then simply didn’t bother reviewing the rest.  Only after it was gone did they start to reassess, and there followed an outpouring of praise and adoration from all quarters. It topped a lot of “Best of 2013” lists. Too little, too late.

Kotaku were lovely about it all the way through, so huzzah for them. They called it “a super-hero comic that never settles on a status quo. A story about David Haller, son of Professor X and a man with many personalities in his mind vying for control. Every issue of Si Spurrier’s series has at least one fantastic surprise and at least one thing you haven’t read in an X-Men comic before. The product of fresh thinking and arguably a better Marvel comic than even the lauded Hawkeye and Daredevil."   (I’d never make that claim myself of course - I fucking love those books - but still. Warming words.)

I poured my heart and soul into my first Marvel ongoing book, and - whether early or late - in the end people really seemed to respond. I’ll be proud of it forever.

Today Comixology has a two-day sale on the first 12 issues. It is, I assure you, Well Worth A Squirt.

Be quick.

My favorite book of last year! GO GET IT.

So if you live in Southern California (or are friends with any Southern Californians on any social media outlet) I assume you are aware that we have been experiencing a slew of seismic activity lately. None of the quakes thus far have been too intense, but it has served as a sobering reminder that…

Dip your toes into the legendary world of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman by picking up issue #1, which is FREE just for today. 

EVERYONE, it’s my birthday and this comic is FREE on comixology. Get it, read it, think of me.

I hate static electricity more than most things in my life and winter means that LIFE IS GODDAMN TERRIFYING. My blanket is literally sparking at me while I try to sleep.

I heard Cake a while ago on the Nerdist podcast talking about how they don’t like having their stuff on Youtube because they don’t have any say what ads are played in association with their content so it feels like they’re complicit in supporting things they don’t support. It seems like the opposite is true too, where you also don’t get to choose where your own ads go. Poor Chvrches. By the way, that’s a video of Rob Ford saying that he never told a staffer that he’d “like to eat [her] pussy” and that, in fact, he has “enough to eat at home.” Poor, poor Chvrches.

Casting the Sandman Movie

Okay, I’ve had reason to think of this a few times this week and it can’t help but get stuck in the mind a bit. If you were casting a movie based on Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN series, who would your cast for the family be? This is what I can come up with:

Destiny: Benedict Cumberbatch. I’m going to try to lean UK actors for this simply because Gaiman is British and pretty much moviemakers have already decided that timeless beings all have British accents. Cumberbatch stands out for Destiny because of his ability to play cold and disaffected and his distinctive voice.

Death: This is pretty much the hardest one to cast, for me. I adore Death in those comics and I think she’s easily the most openly human of the Endless (except, perhaps, for Destruction. Dream is human but boy does he try not to be) which calls for a bit of range. She also has a more distinctive look to her than someone like, say, Destiny. Not to say you couldn’t change it, but it’d be hard to see something other than her trademark hair and build. A friend suggested Helena Bonham Carter, which wouldn’t not fit, but I feel like she gets cast to overact these days and Death can’t do that. I feel like the perfect fit is on the tip of my tongue but I can’t get it.

Dream: Tom Hiddleston. This is a little where all of this was borne from; after seeing Thor: The Dark World a couple times this week, I can’t help but notice how impressive Hiddleston is at complex characters. Granted, Dream and Loki are incredibly different characters but the emotion in Hiddleston’s eyes are perfect for Dream, who keeps most of his emotions there until he’s well and truly angry.

Destruction: Simon Pegg. Okay, I couldn’t actually think who I’d cast for this one and I just love Simon Pegg so I picked Simon Pegg. Actually, after looking at the last answer, I can’t say Chris Hemsworth would be bad.

Desire: David Bowie. Duh.

Despair: I don’t really have a pick for this one because I have trouble looking at Despair in the comics and I hate to look at anyone in the real world with such horror. I guess Never from Louie gave me a similar reaction but, I mean, he’s just a kid. Also a he. I hate being mean to kids and I bet the actual kid isn’t so truly horrible as Never.

Delirium: Lauren Mayberry of Chvrches. I don’t know if she can act or not. I happened to be thinking of SANDMAN while listening to The Bones of What You Believe (specifically “Recover”) and I remembered what Mayberry looked like and decided this role was hers if she wanted it.

Okay, so I know this has probably been done about a thousand times before and this list probably comes across as cliche or horrible or whatever, but I had to get it off my chest. Your thoughts?
