Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
I really enjoy the new costumes Stuart Immonen designed for the time-displaced “All-New” X-Men. They look youthful, modern, unique, and unified without being rigidly uniformed. The one problem? Their teacher dresses like it’s 20 years ago. Uncool, teach!
Professor X, who once wrangled these 5 teens by barking orders with his mind, could wear whatever dour earth-tone cardigan he felt suited his mood in the morning because no one ever saw the guy standing next to his sharply-dressed X-men. Kitty Pryde is right on the front lines with the teens, fighting side by side with them, RUINING EVERY GROUP SHOT WITH HER TERRIBLE COSTUME. Kitty needs to step up to her new role in some new threads.
SO, I’ve mocked up a new costume for her as if it were one of Immonen’s designs. Totally fun trying to mimic his sketch style.
