"The text reads “Score! Superman does it again!,” because as we all know, mackin’ on Amazon warriors is one of America’s national past times and we are required to assign the practice a points system just like we do in baseball. Also, Wonder Woman’s a lasso-less “it” now, we guess. Yeah, that’s why her arm’s all weird at the bottom of the shirt; she’s supposed to be lassoing Superman in the picture. But why present a powerful female superhero using one of her trademark symbols as a marker of sexual agency when you can instead present her as a stiff, rigid board to be scored upon?"
Little Nemo - Return to Slumberland #1
Gabriel Rodriguez, Nelson Daniel, Eric Shanower
These two pages really brought a grin to my face. The slope of the gutter turning into the slope down the mountain and eventually the giant slide/coaster was so exciting. And then Gabriel turning the scenery and inverting ground into sky in order to represent Jimmy’s fall into sleep, was perfection. These two make a formidable team, and are perfectly synced for a book about crossing the line into dream and fantasy, and I imagine there’s going to be a whole lot more playing with the panels and layouts.
I absolutely love reading comics as a family, as it’s not only terrific bonding but it also provides excellent reading practice for our son. Little Nemo has just been a pleasure and we cannot wait for the next issue!

HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT I, PT II, PT III)
Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.
oh my god
So this totally happened
