Designated Dungeon Master



Ask me anything  

There’s a special feeling when you open up Tumblr and realize that something Happened while you were away. All the posts you see are vague, written under the assumption that the reader is already up-to-date, but look at enough of them and you start to piece the picture together. And you know that the more you scroll down, the closer you get to the post that started it all.

"but watchmen revolutionised comics" and maybe if it hadnt then today we would not be faced with garth ennis’s edgy zombie apocalypse comics where the zombie virus makes u wear other peoples face skin as a loin cloth with ur scrotum dangling thru the mouth hole. god what a world that would be. we can only dream

I think about this sometimes.

tiny clark kent, bruce wayne, and diana prince for drgenome! i like, never draw anything big-name-comics related so this was kinda fun and new :Y
(commission me here!)

Powerful Dweebs Befriend Weird Sad Kid. This is the same angle I’d use if I ever got to write about them as costumed adults.

Follow-up: that post might have been the first time I’ve used trigger warnings, so if I’m doing it wrong, don’t hesitate to say so.

On Supervillains and the Narrative of War Crimes

I recently read the first twelve issues of The Authority, up until Mark Millar took over writing from the creator, Warren Ellis. My opinions are mixed, but Ellis might be happy to know that for the first time in a long while, a comic book really made me think about something besides comic books.

First published in 1999 by DC’s Wildstorm imprint, The Authority is about a superhero team by the same name that operates on a global scale (largely thanks to their colossal, dimension-traveling headquarters) and without traditional heroic limitations, which means that they have zero qualms about killing their enemies and sometimes even allow for civilian casualties if it means saving the world.

Spoilers ahead.

Emergency commissions, round four-and-a-half!

There are two more after this, but they’re not quite finished yet. But yeah… 44 commissions altogether. WHEW. Thanks to everyone who commissioned me, it helped greatly and is much appreciated!

See those two jerks in the bottom picture? I spent months with them and I can’t tell if the turian is convincing his buddy not to kill someone or giving her tips on the best way to do it. I’m lucky I got out when I did, or that I got out at all, come to think of it.

make comics, big name superhero comics in particular, as gay and as full of women and all kinds of representation as you want because the shitnerd fuckboy comics community is not going to give you respect for doing it ‘quietly’ so you might as well fucking drown them

feelin this lately

let me loose in mainstream comics and I will go on a nerd tear crusade

I think that one of my favorite little pseudo-jokes is inappropriately using proper nouns as common nouns, especially in regards to fictional characters.

"There might be a Dracula in there!"

"We have to build a Robocop."

"There’s no such thing as Hulks."

Another variation is referring to characters from and/or fans of a series as the series name. No lie, one of my favorite things about the Homestuck fandom is that off-hand jokes like “Karkat is my favorite Homestuck” eventually led to that being the official unofficial name for fans.

So did they ever figure out what the fault in our stars was? Was it the black hole thing? That seems like a big fault to me.
