"East of West is a story about that feeling we're experiencing collectively right now, as a society, that the world is in a bit of a death spiral. The tagline of the book is, "The things that divide us are stronger than the things that unite us." You know, the end times are imminent and we all hate each other too much to come together and solve our problems. Our final destination is imminent, and it is the Apocalypse." - Jonathan Hickman

'It is very much the sort of panel you can lift. I said earlier about the line which most skewers Cassandra was the “Smart” thing. With second thought, it’s probably this. That said, it’s also one which hits a lot of bad critics. Occasionally entertaining critics, but intellectually dishonest cowards.' -- Kieron Gillen

Events have consequences that are themselves consequential.

Late in the 13th century, the Swiss Confederacy was formed to protect its member regions' trade routes through the Alpine mountains from others seeking to acquire them. Almost immediately after that, it was confronted by the Habsburgs, whose armies proceeded to aggressively occupy its lands.

In spite of the border blockading those armies imposed, a resistance thrived in the Confederacy. It sought to gather weapons and warriors from abroad. To that end, it needed someone to cross the St. Gotthard pass, to go through the checkpoint there- the one known as Wolfsmund, the Wolf's Maw.

(If that doesn't quite track with history for you, well.. this's been called historical fantasy.)

So it was that a woman called Johanna found herself trying to sneak through with fake identification. She was caught out and captured; she escaped, though, and tried to climb out a window to the other side.

She almost made it.

If only she hadn't been caught at the moment she was.. )

And issue 2 ot IDW's visually stunning revamp of quintessential 1980's cartoon Jem has a preview for issue 2 up here, and we meet my favourite girl group (outside of The Pointer Sisters)

One of the trademarks of the Jem cartoon was the musical numbers were done in the stle of proper MTV musc videos, and when we meet the Misfits in the opening pages it seems they're sort of taking the same route

And it looks awesome.. )

I created this community for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw because this is something I'm becoming passionate about and there isn't really a community where these things can be discussed anymore...

[community profile] daily_liberal

This is a community to share and discuss current events, especially in the political sphere. The goal is to post a news article that is important, informative, and/or entertaining, with community members encouraged to discuss it. A liberal, progressive slant is part of this community's ideology; this is intended to be a safe space for liberals to talk about the issues amongst each other.

I do post every day [when I remember] but all members are welcome to post and commentary and conversation is encouraged.

Back in the 1990s, Ultron decided he should look beyond his "Kill all humans" philosophy.

Ultron may be a genocidal murder-bot, but he thinks ahead. "Plants and animals might someday evolve to be a threat to me. Better kill them all, too."

Three pages from WEST COAST AVENGERS #90 after the cut. Written by Roy and Dannette Thomas with art by David Ross.
