Everyone loves superheroes. But not everyone considers what it’s like to be a member of the supporting cast of a comic book series. However, if we’re honest most of us are the kind of people who qualify more as supporting cast than main characters. So this week, I offer to you my suggestions for things to keep in mind should you ever find yourself trapped as a minor character in a comic book:
1. Never date a superhero. It can never end well, and will most likely result in emotionally traumatizing events.
a. Yes, even if you have superpowers, too.
2. Never date a supervillian. For all their charisma, power and (inevitably) good looks, there’s far too much narcissism required to go into that field of work to be good for a relationship.
a. Reforming them through the Power of Love is right out.
Just a typical love story between a girl and a zombie.
A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
Thanks to my sweetie, Eva, for this yummy collection of vintage Thanksgiving Art. Have a great Turkey Day, everyone! 🙂
Darlings, today kicks off a holiday week here in the United States. While Halloween will always be my favorite, I do have a soft spot for all the events of autumn; celebrations of harvests and softly falling leaves, as we prepare for a dark and cozy period before the wheel turns once again to sun and summer.
In honor of this week’s fall festival, here is a whole collection of early 20th century Thanksgiving art from magazine covers and America’s Golden Age of Postcards. I am particularly partial to the lovely 1914 George Barbier Harper’s Bazar cover at right. Enjoy!
