Dear Woof Drunk, if the Senshi and the Power Rangers got in a fight, who would win? Please be advised that the Power Rangers have giant robots that are also dinosaurs and/or prehistoric mammals while I’m pretty sure the Silver Crystal is actually useless.

I dont’ know Power Rangers sorry. :(   BUT REI HINO I’M PRETTY SURE




I read this very fanction in 1998.

What has been your worst “nice guy” experience?



So, possibly one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I mean you know how you hear the “women want him, men want to *be* him” stuff in old movies? Well I’m a man and by *god* I wanted to be this guy. Anyway!

I’m having dinner with my girlfriend at the time, and behind us are a couple on a date. It is.. not going well. Guy was being rather creepy and making some pretty inappropriate comments, the girl doesn’t look at all comfortable.

The girl finishes her appetiser really quickly, my guess is she wanted to get it over with. Guy proceeds to comment on it and says “well, least I know you can swallow right?”. Loudly.

Girl goes red and tells him that isn’t appropriate, he literally waves his hand in a “shoo” type motion and says “oh calm down I was going to find out in a few hours anyway”.

I missed her exact reply as she moved to a hushed tone, but it was fairly obvious what was being said – fuck no, fuck off, fuck this. He responded with “sweetheart I picked you up, I know where you live”. She lost the colour in her face and said nothing.

No. No. Fuck no. I’m one of those “get involved” type of people and there is no way I’m sitting here watching this go down. I get up. I don’t know what I’m going to do, but I’m 23, fighting fit and happy to put that motherfucker through a wall. I may have had a slight temper in my youth. But anyway.

I was halfway out of my chair when a hand came down on my shoulder and I look up to this mid-50s but super fit guy who says “Easy.. I’ve got this one son”. Absolute, total confidence in his voice.. so seeing as my current plan amounted to “stab him in the neck” and I’m already thinking maybe that’s not the best idea, I sit down.

He walks over, grabs a nearby chair, flips it around and sits down with the couple. Then.. he pulls out his police ID and puts it on the table. Now the guy doesn’t have any colour in his face.

Cop: “So, I’m quietly celebrating my daughters birthday with my family when I distinctly hear you threaten this young lady, would you care to explain yourself?”

Guy: “I, ah, well, um, you see..”

Cop: “That’s what I thought. Now see, we take a *very* dim view of that kind of thing, so right now I’m deciding if I want to have some of my buddies come pick you up.”

Guy: “oh no well that…”

Cop: “But that would disrupt everyone’s dinner, so how about you hand me your ID, because I wouldn’t want you running off on me, then you go see one of the staff here and settle your bill.. the full bill now, this young lady shouldn’t go hungry on account of your poor behaviour. Or we can go with the first option, I’ll leave it up to you.”

Guy: “No no! That’s perfectly fine!” *hands over ID, gets up and walks very quickly in the direction of the counter*

Cop: *while writing down the guys details* “Sorry about that miss, I hope I’m not intruding it just seemed like you could use some help. Oh and don’t worry, if you want to pursue this further I’ll have some of the boys pick him up on his way home, we can definitely take this further.”

Girl: “No, thank you so much, I wanted to run out 30 minutes ago but he drove me here”.

Cop: *shifts from hardarse cop to comforting father figure in about half a second* “Well I’m here with my daughter, she’s about your age, perhaps you’d like to finish your meal with us? We can run you home afterwards if you’d like, unless you’d prefer to call someone else?”

Girl: “Oh.. that would be really nice.. thankyou so much!”

*guy returns, so does the hardarse cop*

Guy: “Uh so, I’ve paid the bill, if I could have my ID back..”.

Cop: “There you go.. now I have your details right here so I *highly* recommend you don’t go near or contact this young lady ever again.”

Guy: “Yes yes of course, I’m so sorry!”

The guy pretty much fled the restaurant, the girl went and sat with the cop and his family and by the time we left they were still sitting around talking and laughing about random crap.

It was hands down the best way I have ever seen anybody handle any situation, ever. That cop is my hero.

Dude. I hope that man has a great rest of his life.

comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick started #VisibleWomen on twitter to give female artists and writers the visibility we (many times) don’t have but desperately need. 

i recommend following the hashtag to discover new talents (i’ve met like 200+ amazing women today in just a few hours!), and also if you’re a writer, illustrator, cartoonist, comic creator…etc,  tweet at her using that hashtag because she’s being super kind and supportive and is signal boosting everyone.

Hey, folks!  

We’re doing another round of #VisibleWomen on AUGUST 7th 2017.  This time we’re opening submissions up to include women* colorists, letterers and writers as well.  

So you have time to prepare, it works like this: 

Tweet your portfolio link(s) in the appropriate format below with the hashtag #VisibleWomen *any time on August 7th.*

We will signal boost the tweet AND add your info to our #visiblewomen spreadsheet, which is available free of charge to any hiring professional in the comic book industry.    

The goals of the initiative are to raise the visibility of women in our industry and to get you work.   

Here are some templates for tweets that will be easy for us to put in our spreadsheet. 

IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST: I’m [your professional name – even if it matches your Twitter handle], I draw [a couple words about style or titles of works you’ve done] & my portfolio is at [link/links]. I also [color/letter/flat/write]. 

IF YOU ARE A LETTER: I’m [your professional name – even if it matches your Twitter handle], I lettered [title of book(s)]. Resume & work samples are online at [link/links]. 

IF YOU ARE A COLORIST: I’m [your professional name – even if it matches your Twitter handle], I color[ed] [title of book(s)]. Resume & work samples are online at [link/links]. [I also flat for other colorists.]

IF YOU ARE A WRITER: I’m [your professional name – even if it matches your Twitter handle], I wrote [title of book(s)], which is available online at [link/links]. [My resume with more of my work is LINK.] 

140 characters is not a lot, so if you can include a word or two about your style, GREAT! If not, give us enough to get us started.  

If you just want the signal boost for readers or visibility, you can play looser withe the format. For instance, “My name is [name], I’m the cartoonist behind the webcomic [name and link]. We’re a [mecha/horror/romance] – check us out!” 

Make sense? 

IMPORTANT: SELF SUBMISSIONS ONLY.  It’s GREAT that you want to support your friends, but do not submit for them. We don’t want to risk signal-boosting someone who does not yet feel ready.  

Cool?  Cool.  

Join us on Twitter on August 7th.  If you have questions in the meantime, either hit me on Twitter @kellysue or email me at

* #VisibleWomen is intended to raise the profiles of women** comic creators, but we also welcome (and have always welcomed) non-binary creators too.  If you identify as “not male” and would like to participate, please do!   

** Because we’ve gotten the question every time we’ve done this, yes, trans women are welcome. Trans women are women. We also welcome short women and tall women. We don’t want to add to anyone’s anxiety around gender identity. No one is going to ask for papers – if you know yourself to be a woman (or not a man), and could use a signal boost, please join us! 



It’s weird to draw drag on a face you’ve already drawn. I’ve painted clown faces and other kinds of makeup, but drag is about adding fake dimension. Except you have to add dimension in a way that looks like makeup and not just realism otherwise it would simply look like his face. I don’t know if that makes sense, but basically I had to treat this like an actual makeup process to get it to work—foundation, concealer, powder, contour, etc. 

Thanks for the suggestion it was fun!

Great British Baking Show judges during the technical challenge

Mary: Paul, your forbidden fruit gilded currant plait looks delightful
Paul: Mary, the key to this bake is to have grown up your entire life with the sole intention of baking this exactly once and then dying
Mary: you’ve been rather scarce on the instructions, haven’t you?
Paul: yes, I really want to test the baker’s knowledge of the arcane, so I’ve left them a simple note to go fuck themselves and a loaded gun
Mary: oh you are cruel Paul! *they both chuckle and put both entire hands into the baked good before them*
