I’m not crying, I just got somethin’ in my eye…
Waitaminute. Hold up. I was too busy having feels to realize that “KATYA” is Colossus’s Russian nickname for Kitty. Nightcrawler always called her “KATZCHEN” which is German for kitten. Was this scene originally supposed to have Piotr and Kitty having a nice moment, since he just recently returned to the X-Mansion, and Kitty and Kurt have had their reunion moment already, brianmichaelbendis?
unitedstatesofno said: if I want to get better at drawing, what should I draw a lot of? Also, your book kicks ass
Hello! Thank you! You could draw:
- the things you want to see more of in the world
- the things you like thinking about the most
- whatever you think will make your friends laugh the most
- maybe something you really hate thinking about, but drawing it gets it out of your head
- an idea or memory that you never want to forget
- whatever seems most difficult. It will be frustrating and you might even cry, but the worst that will happen is you’ll f*ck it up horrendously and get a funny/dopey drawing out of it.

Love is basically a form of highly sought-after, socially acceptable insanity. Right? It makes even the strongest people fragile and vulnerable, while at the same time filling the weakest people with a rare and special power. Love is a great wrecking ball that broke open the walls of Harley Quinn’s cracking mind, and because of love, she’s free to swing from the wrecking ball with wild abandon.

Personally, I’m not offended by Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman cover. Spider-Woman is supposed to be super-bendy and is often crouching and sneaking around, just like she’s depicted in the instantly-infamous Manara picture. If it were Storm, or Captain Marvel, it’d be out-of-character and I’d have to agree that she was being needlessly cheesecaked.
That said, it is still kind of ridiculous and worth calling upon the Hawkeye Initiative to poke some fun at it.
To the haters who are exasperated by Manara using a pose similar to one he used in an adult comic, heads up: Artists use and reuse variations of their favorite poses all the time. It doesn’t, in any way, cheapen his remarkable craftsmanship.
To everyone who is all OMG HER SPINE IS BROKEN LEARN TO DRAW, I say
Artists have taken liberties with human anatomy to express their love of it since the dawn of time.
This is a female fertility figure from about 35,000 years ago. Now, THAT’s what Marvel should riff on for their next series of variant covers!
