But in all seriousness, get well soon. I find that carrying a small voodoo doll wards away bad luck and illness. I haven’t been sick since I found mine last year.

Get well soon! Being sick genuinely sucks, I should know in my current situation. It feels like the seven dwarves are mining for jewels in my skull, but my horrible teachers dumped a bunch of homework on me. I have to suffer before I get to rest.

I have a small piece of paper that I wrote the number seven on 49 times (that’s seven times seven) in seven different colours. I keep it in my pencil case near exam times to give me extra luck. It didn’t work for maths last year though, my whole class failed.
Whovian, that’s pretty nifty… although, I am confused as to how you turned it into a doomsday device…

Haha, I don’t know how either. Maybe it had something to do with my mental energy. I wanted to pass my other three exams (and did) but when it came to maths, I thought “Bleh, whatever”. Maybe that’s why everybody failed.
Okay, I sound so bonkers right now. Haha. Next thing I know I’ll be reading The Secret and asking the universe for a bicycle.
If you happen to find yourself in Hong Kong from November 2-4, Marvel is hosting a preposterously swanky 8-course meal at Bo Innovation, a 3-star Michelin restaurant. “From the Avengers to Spiderman to Guardians of the Galaxy, each chef will have one night to create an exclusive Marvel-themed menu…” At a price of $300/person, this […]
In the Deadpool trailer, Ryan Reynolds’ character takes a shot at his last superhero movie, Green Lantern. I predict that it’ll actually do even worse critically than GL did (26% on Rotten Tomatoes). His movies (e.g. Green Lantern and RIPD) tend to be fanatically committed to comedy but have an awful record at actually being […]
John Lucas just published a superhero novelette about a superhero whose marriage counselor told him to grow a set. “Less than 24 hours later, he finds himself mired in an underworld of crime, violence, and ill-advised self-improvement.” The novelette, A Hero Is Always Alone Sometimes, can be downloaded for free on Amazon from 8/26 to […]
The new Fantastic Four movie runs like an ill-conceived first draft. Personally, I think it deserved a 30-40% on Rotten Tomatoes rather than a suspiciously low 9%. I can’t think of a single way in which it’s worse than Green Lantern (26%). Fill in the blank: “One thing most of the main characters share is ________.” […]
My expectations for the Ant-Man movie were exceedingly low — mainly based on concerns about the source material (no memorable villains, not much interesting personality, not conventionally useful superpowers, etc). In actuality, it’s a consistently funny movie with reasonably good fight scenes. Right now it’s averaging 79% on RT and I think that’s about righ
The most important thing in writing comic books is finding and honing your own unique voice. A unique voice makes your writing exclusive and authentic. Authenticity connects with readers. Many comic book writers have trouble developing their own unique voices when they are starting out. Fortunately, there are a few exercises you can do […]
Comics are a visual medium, and that can be an advantage over prose when it comes to storytelling. The motion and force in Wonder Woman’s punch, the adorkable grin on Ms. Marvel’s face, that gorgeous two-page spread of Gotham City: these are images that can be harder to get across in writing. But don’t get […]
