So. In the last week this tumblr has had a lot more eyes on it than usual, thanks to Kelly Sue DeConnick reblogging a post of mine featuring a picture I did of Captain Marvel (though I secretly think it’s the Columbo and Rockford drawings that people really like).
As such it seems like a good time to mention that if you like the way I draw you can find a load of my stuff around the Internet- there’s ideasmancomic.tumblr.com and particlefictioncomic.tumblr.com for starters- but more importantly I draw the sci fi prison webcomic SPACESCAPE that updates three days a week over at Spacescapecomic.tumblr.com - we’re still only 55 pages in at the moment, so it’s not too much to catch up on. Go on, give it a go. I don’t think you’ll regret it.edit to add OH ALSO I CO-CREATED, DREW AND CO WROTE A COMIC CALLED HYPERGIRL THAT YOU SHOULD TOTALLY CHECK OUT ON COMIXOLOGY, AND ALSO GOOGLE “HYPERGIRL COSPLAY” can’t believe I nearly forgot to mention that
The Complete Blood, Sweat and Tea: Amazon.co.uk: Tom Reynolds: Books
For those of you who might be interested in reading the book that inspired both the UK and US series, Sirens.
Highly recommended. The original blog that the books grew out of can be found here. Brian (Tom’s real name) is on twitter as @Reynolds. He was one of the first friends I ever made via the internet, and is an all around lovely chap.
A bunch of recent pictures. These are all for sale, £20 each. email@example.com if you’re interested.
I still need to do that Quincy drawing to complete the 70s TV trifecta.
Which one best describes you? Lew Stringer’s “The 7 Ages Of Fan”, as printed in the UKCAC98 booklet.
I think I’d been through all of these by the time I hit 30, and now I get to just enjoy the things as just a normal person who loves comics.
This is scarily spot on, though.
…is almost as fun as discussing Star Wars canon, or the non-existence of the Doctor Who canon.
The only difference being that, in general, people take Biblical canon slightly less seriously.
If nothing is canon in Doctor Who, everything is canon.
In the room I am in right now, nothing is on fire.
OH NO! EVERYTHING MUST BE ON FIRE! ARGH! CALL THE FIRE BRIGADE! THE CAT IS ON FIRE!
Q:I'm sorry, I need to unfollow you. The person you are and the things you post about are making me enjoy your comics less. Not everyone needs to be a social justice crusader. And while I agree with equal rights for all, I do think you're going about it in an immensely hurtful and personally degrading way. Changing who characters are inside just because you're now writing them is never okay. Good luck to you.
Sorry to hear that…I am curious who you feel I have done this to?
“Changing who characters are inside just because you’re now writing them is never okay”
For the record, Tumblr, shit like this is why people use the term “tumblr fandom” as a pejorative.
Who characters are inside is entirely up to the writer writing them at the time because, hey, they’re *fictional*, you fucking idiot. That’s how it works.
I wish I knew how Gail Simone remains so calm and polite in the face of such entitled idiocy, I really do.
