Good evening owls of /co/,
We were going to read the second Citizen V mini but fuck it, it's Zemo time
(back in 15, meanwhile, this got me kind of annoyed today):
(scroll up, scroll down)
he came by that (stolen) body honestly!
dat ass, but he hasn't forgotten how she beat him
His argument is that people like shit for reasons that often are not immediately obvious from prominent aspects of the shit itself, and also that it's probably not very useful to then slag on people who like something due to how other people who like it view and use it.
That's fair! I suppose my beef is more with the other parties in that conversation who apparently can't separate their own politics and think about WHY other people might like a thing.
He's not bitching so much as the person downthread who's all "Fuck everything Punisher because it's politically tainted" is making me roll my eyes; sorry I wasn't clearer
Maybe this new age of "everything is politics, and politics is everything" is a toxic form of post-modernism? If so, can we go back to the age of post-modernism where everyone fancied themselves an expert critic? I'm really starting to miss that.
If you're ever in the mood for the kind of srs bzns scholarship people don't seem to get the time to produce these days, and you don't mind being horribly depressed, this echos:
Hold on. COunter-Earth Iron Cross is Zemo? I thought he was the alternate V-Battalion Helmut. Well played, Nicieza.
I kinda want the Counter-Zemo to be awake in there and arguing with baseline Zemo.
reminder that Helmut is weak to children
Right, I am hoping they don't go anywhere near Edmondson's Punisher with its "YAY MILITARY WOOO" vibe
Oh Atlas, you poor thing
His character flaws are very well placed
oh that's right, Dillon's on art isn't he
that man really loves his FRANK
What you mean the movie that shows the fact that war fucks people up and forces them to make horrible moral decisions that lead to PTSD issues? That's not the kind of cathartic violence porn I think he's trying to make reference to.
Same deal with good Punisher stories. Frank is a fucked-up guy, and the best versions of his character don't shy away from that fact that NORMAL people don't go around thinking of executing criminals as their job.
I haven't seen it, I just remember Ales Kot got into it with Gerads over the film, too, so there's some framing of the film as a politically undesirable thing, etc. I totally agree with you about good Punisher stories.
Flying cities are damn cool, but as a feat of engineering, they're utterly ridiculous. The sheer logistics alone, never mind the actual construction and necessary materials.
>ravaged by something other than giant monsters
so when are these two going to fuck already
OH, so I went and downloaded some of Avengers Undercover
what a waste of Kev Walker, holy shit
Attilan is 100% vintage Inhumans bullshit Kree science
I feel like the people who shit on American Sniper haven't seen it. It very much treats the IDEAL of a soldier with respect, but it is very un-glamorous in how it shows the action of war itself.
this is surely going to end well
Also, so, no spoilers, but I think we'll find Ellis in some ways makes more sense after we actually get to what leads into it
I couldn't sleep last night so I read some comics
>Attilan is 100% vintage Inhumans bullshit Kree science
The fact it's built into a huge chunk of rock makes it even more absurd. Way to add dead weight, idiots.
Also, I would LOVE to find out how they keep people from falling off while in flight. A chain link fence?
>I couldn't sleep last night so I read some comics
For some reason, reading has the opposite effect on me when I can't get to sleep. The action of getting into a story or a line of reasoning in a book puts my brain further into awake mode.
it's kind of frustrating to watch writers backslide with him, but such is the fate of villains who get more complex, except for Doom, I guess
I will not bore you with my 100% justified hateboner for Mother Teresa, I will just say it exists.
>but such is the fate of villains who get more complex, except for Doom, I guess
Or someone like Black Adam, where one writer handles the majority of the character's main stories for a long stretch of time.
>talking to his dead mom
>Can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved.
BULLSHIT. Someone check Fixer for parasites or something. He just said something sensible!
FabNic here owned Zemo for a long time (as we see) and did a lot with him...and then, well, a lot of it seems to have been at least partially undone. Black Adam seems to have escaped that, he was fun in Smugnestro (which I am behind on)
Yeah that's what I ACTUALLY do if I'm having trouble falling asleep. Dial up something on YouTube.
Also finding a podcast or talk radio channel and turning it down really, really low so I can't really make out what they're saying. Just having that white noise in the background helps a lot.
I have anxiety problems, so trying to figure out how to shut off my brain and actually get some fucking sleep without medication has been an ongoing experiment
Gosh, I miss our dysfunctional family. Cagebolts really was good, but these guys together have the real family feel
no, the person
we parallel plots now, btw
Hey guys, this issue has a special bonus--wanna see it?
>Hey guys, this issue has a special bonus--wanna see it?
Considering you're being mysterious about it, I'm not sure I do.
>that snake chick
No comment, just want to draw attention to her.
..... Wait a minute.
Oh, absolutely not. Fuck you.
the lettering boxes here are kind of unclear, the flow is not good--but it is a spread
Marvel Knights F4 is really good
I know I should be amused by him trying not to enjoy being a good guy, but goddamn you're supposed to do the first experiment in a controlled environment, then move it outdoors on a larger scale.
Someone's posting set pics from the Wonder Woman movie and I'm actually really excited that it's a WWI period piece. Seems like a point in history that isn't explored too often by superhero stories.
so what's actually happened in Lemire Hawkeye past and present?
It looks like the logo for some shitty semi-obscure 90s cartoon.
I will never understand this shit here.
Why have the panel lines when it's all one image like that? All that does is clutter the page.
>Why have the panel lines when it's all one image like that? All that does is clutter the page.
I like it when artists and writers do the trick of having the panel lines cut across a single, static background shot, but have the characters do different things in each panel. It's a neat way of showing progression of time in a scene.
But yeah that's a dumb way of chunking up the page.
Didn't Austen right about finding kids that died in a fire in JLA?
Wally's story I think. It was one of his better arcs, dealt with all the various stresses a Superhero has to deal with.
I think it's because of the lettering, it's trying to guide you to read the boxes in the right order
Zirch is usually a good artist to look at for clear storytelling and good panel composition, to be fair
It also originates in murk and tension that's so much more ambiguous than the Nazi invasions. Balkan politics, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, alliances, etc.
I don't know, it's a boneheaded decision
the Bolts logo needs no changes
i'd be surprised if that's NOT the direction they take it in.
Again, considering that it's based in WORLD WAR ONE, that's perfect excuse for saying that Ares is pulling shit behind the scenes, or the conflict is giving him enough power to take over the world, or something like that.
I'd be surprised if they didn't do that.
WWI was pretty complicated and depressing and it would be very difficult to sum up the entire war in addition to the modern day stuff.
Just saying "an evil god capable of causing war" makes it much more simple.
No, but they should, but we have no Busiek-style power levels right now except maybe Ewing and he's already working hard
shit, isn't there a ton of weird old X-stuff to dust off?
Isn't that some quality Zemo booty?
yeah, and his last page at Marvel ended with the box FUTILITY
>thinking this movie will do anything smart or logical
You guys are really letting the somewhat unique setting blind you to literally everything else in this movie.
Zirch remembers the scar, too. Guess that's gone now.
>the high today was -2
>It was -14 Last night
is that Songbird? can't be, Hallie knows who that is
how common is the two people in one body thing, when it's this close? Genis and Rick seemed to have more separation, as do the Firestorms, they can uncombine
no spoilers, very kind
we're here for you to vent to, anon. wish I could bring you home-cooked food.
You know, Karla really DID have his number, back at the big confrontation with Zemo in space.
Paranoid, stressed, and annoyed
The hospital literally a few minutes from where I live isn't emailing me back about volunteer opportunities and I'm running out of time. It's been 3 days and all I need is a "we aren't doing that right now, look somewhere else" but noooooo
Call their HR department first thing in the morning. The only way I was able to get in volunteering and shadowing people at my local hospital when I was looking to get into a medical field, was when I cut the bullshit and talked to someone personally
and pulled a couple strings because my mom was an RN who was on first-name basis with a lot of the staff
The numbering skips here, but I don't think a page is missing?
also, LOL, more of the hands on hips pose
>bitching that helping people is too easy
Psst, Hallie. Shut the hell up and just role with it, girl.You will never have it this good ever again. Chill.
...... This is why older Fixer murdered himself. Tool.
>we're here for you to vent to, anon. wish I could bring you home-cooked food.
I was promised a really robust program for helping first-year teachers when I moved down here and I haven't gotten jack shit in training so far, not to mention that EVERYONE admits that this is a really tough county and school district to teach in. It's stressful as fuck and I'm so overwhelmed by the position that it's tough to get everything done and keep up with the paperwork in addition to grading and lesson planning
So if you ever hear people complaining about the state of our schools in America or the shortage of teachers, I know exactly fucking why it's like that. Nobody wants to be a teacher because your first couple years are hell and it burns almost everyone out.
Now that's bullshit. Is there anywhere else you can reapply to/switch to, that is more likely to give you the support you need?
>So if you ever hear people complaining about the state of our schools in America or the shortage of teachers
mostly in regards to the school system I hear people complaining that teachers have it too easy and they shouldn't strike for higher wages because they don't work for three months of the year
so yeah I presume nobody wants to be a teacher because it's also basically a thankless job
Oh gosh, he wants to try so hard but he knows he sucks at it
>Now that's bullshit. Is there anywhere else you can reapply to/switch to, that is more likely to give you the support you need?
I'm getting support now because the other teachers I'm working with are great and have helped out a lot with mentoring me, but I'm getting zero help from administration or the county, and I'm basically working from the ground-up in terms of funds and savings. I'm going to stick it out through this year, then try to get my ducks in a row to give it a shot next year once I have a better handle on classroom management, but I feel like I'm getting punished for being a greenhorn when the standardized testing comes around and my kids aren't up to snuff because I'm inexperienced and still trying to figure out how to teach and manage a class effectively.
Well here's the thing. Are there bad teachers out there? Abso-fucking-lutely. The problem is that they can afford to be bad because they know that the school will keep them on because they don't have a lot of people exactly clamoring for a position to replace them.
thanks for reading, owls, more tomorrow! we're heading to #75, then Threeboot beckons
>I still don't like this Moonstone costume
Same. Especially the boots. That's just ugly.
>Smiling Karla scares me
What, you don't trust that face? That false assurance doesn't comfort you at all?
The page must be shared
It's just kind of weird that, you know, that actually worked. Usually you expect to hear that incident to be brought up dozens of times after or at least Melissa to think that Karla swooped in and stole him, especially since it's the same writer. Here, if you skipped this one issue it never would've been one.
also kind of relevant to our story here, in that Nick Spencer reads old comics
I would die for a Steve Lieber Bolts mini or something
Also, since I went looking, you see the gig Janice did for Zemo over in Bru's Cap, wherein it's Zemo's huge "trolling Bucky" scheme
We storytimed a mini where Dillon did the art on the one featuring Karate Kid. It was kind of funny, it was from the era when Dillon was still evolving to the force of Frank we know and love today, so in the beginning Karate Kid actually looked normal and happy, then when shit went down he went full FRANK.
The shirt's an edit, the face is not.
