Well, there is nothing about this that is not fabulous
"One day in the subway, James saw a red cat with a wound to the leg that likely resulted from a fight with another cat. It was obvious that the cat needed help. James could not pass and took the cat to the vet. With a little medical treatment and prescription drugs, the cat quickly recovered. At that point, James found it impossible to say goodbye to Street Cat Bob. Bob followed James everywhere he went. As James played the guitar on the street and Bob sat nearby, revenues increased dramatically. People found it difficult to pass when they looked at the cute kitty. James went on to write a book describing their adventures in the street which was full of life – both dramatic and comedic. In the book, James says that he could not have imagined how meeting Bob would change his life. His friendship with the cat healed him from a life that had been very hard. Most likely, if Bob could speak, he would say the same thing.”
"Wonder Woman has been an enduring symbol of women’s power. We could imagine no better way to urge women to use their own power–the power of their vote–to stand up for themselves and their rights in the coming elections."

Some brief thoughts on the new Wonder Woman costume for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Like all the costumes the colors look dingy, but other than that I love it. LOVE IT.
It returns to the classic look of the character with a few design tweaks. If you hate the classic costume you’ll hate this one. Adding a subtle sling over the costume makes the costume practical in more ways than one without losing the iconic look.
In 1968 DC Comics got rid of the strapless swimsuit and gave her a shirt and pants. But when Ms. magazine put Wonder Woman on their first cover in 1972, they wanted the classic look. Every superhero’s power as a symbol IS their iconic look. By February 1973 DC submitted and gave Diana her costume back.
Compare the preview images of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Who looks like the ass kicker? Who looks ready to take action? Who’s having fun? Which one of them looks like a hero?
"Which one of them looks like a hero?"
Fuck yeah, Wonder Woman!
One I did a while ago before I had a tumblr in relation to my finding out Blue Beetle was officially coming back into DC canon. magistrate-of-mediocrity
made me think of it with her post about Blue Beetle finding out about smart phones!
My original description on DA - After 9 years dead Ted Kord’s returning to DC continuity with Forever Evil #7. I wanted to make something to celebrate that as well as illustrate that a lot has happened since 2005. Hope it makes you laugh or at the very least brightens your day some. I might end up making a sequel because some of my friends have been suggesting other things to to confuse Ted with, like twitter hashtags and HDR.On the Pilates thing, a friend of mine said that to me the other day and I fell into a laughing fit for about 5 minutes. Wanted to use it and hope he doesn’t mind. Also, Black Canary just seems like someone who’d be into Pilates.I’m probably not going to get what I want, but while I’m ok with them taking away the underwear, in my opinion the Steve Ditko simple-but-clever BB design is one of the slickest in comic book history. Seriously, don’t mess too much with that, I love it. Also, the Justice League International personality? Keep that too.Anyway. Pencil, Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI.
