I hope one day I’m semi tumblr famous. Like just to the point where people want to know about my life
PREVIEW: The first four pages of Notna #1 are complete! Here’s the Michael Turner tribute variant cover and the first four pages of this epic saga. Pencils and inks on 8.5x11” Bristol board, then scanned for digital colors using SketchBook Pro 6’s copic tools.
*beams with pride*
Pencils (with a splash of red colored pencil) on gray toned paper. Not sure if I should ink this or not. I kinda like it the way it is.
Hey, more drawing and comics-type stuffs.
Y’all should follow. It’s cool.
The whiny comic fanboys who complain about racial and sexual diversity in comics often scream something to the effect of, “What does it matter what a character’s race/sex/orientation is?! All that matters is a good story!” Okay…so keep that in mind the next time you decide to boycott a title just because the main character is brown/black and/or female. Cause, you know, you’re being hypocritical otherwise.

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"
Jesus: Ah yes.
Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.
Jesus: What a shame.
We know Kamala Khan is popular, but what does a sixth printing really mean?
Kamala Khan has enraptured the world as many times as she’s saved it. Now, the plucky Pakistani-American teen who made history as the new Ms Marvel, comics’ first ever lead Muslim superhero, is getting a rare sixth printing—and heralding a new era of diversity in comics.
Although the world of comics occupies an increasingly large part of the pop cultural domain—last year the industry did about $800 million in sales—the number of people who actually buy comics is relatively small. Most comics only average about 3,000 copies per printing; with Kamala now on her sixth printing, she’s headed towards a whopping 20,000 print copies sold.
Still, to put things in perspective, sixth printings are major milestones in the world of comics. Spider-Man Issue #583, the one with President Obama on the cover, only made it to a fifth printing despite making international headlines. Kamala now joins an elite lineup of bestselling comics that have performed beyond all expectations.
Cue the whiny white boys screaming, “But it’s not any goooood!”
To which I say, yes it fucking is. Sit down.
Ms. Marvel is easily one of my favorite titles right now, and I’m glad that there’s a big following and a passionate fanbase for it.
It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.
Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.
Um, this is fantastic. Why the hell are you complaining?
>genuinely good and interesting comic choices
That’s an interesting way to spell “obvious pandering”.
Throwing away iconic characters on a whim so you can please the demands of pissy ideologues who could not care less about the comics themselves and only care about pushing their own agenda where it doesn’t belong, is not “genuinely good and interesting comic choices.”
You know superhero mantels get passed around ALL THE TIME right?
There’s multiple Flashes, Green Lanterns, Robins, Ms. Marvels, Captain Marvels, Spidermans, and even Wonder Womans, right? There’s even more than one Batman. THERES ALREADY MORE THAN ONE CAPTAIN AMERICA. (Bradley AND Barnes have both used the name already.)
Starting a new run where the mantel gets passed onto someone who isn’t a white dude isn’t “throwing away iconic characters.” It’s using a staple of the comic narrative to bring in new fans, energize franchises, and diversify line ups.
Pffft, fake nerd boys, not even understanding how mantel passing works.
Also, why does this person assume that women and POC don’t care about comics?
This just in, comics aren’t only for little whiney white boys.
Whiny white boys are the sole reason I’ll be adding the new Captain America to my pull box…because anything that pisses off the self-absorbed white comic fanboy has to be good.
