"Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You" is a small project where I draw superheroes based on the costumes of young girls.

This original submission is The Curly Girlie!

From the mother: “Her superhero is named The Curly Girlie. She uses her long curly hair to lasso the bad guys, and has laser vision.”

At The Gutter: David Banner Will Never Have A Normal Life

Screen Editor Alex thinks about the 1970s tv show, The Incredible Hulk, and what it means to have a normal life.

Whenever I find myself edging towards misery or self-pity, I start humming the ending theme from The 1970′s tv version of The Incredible Hulk. I think to myself, “David Banner will never have a normal life.” It’s a technique I owe to Carol Borden, who has a lot of interesting things to say about The Hulk.

Having inevitably hulked out wherever he’s just been, David Banner is forced to move on down the road at the end of each episode with nothing but a duffle bag and his own radioactive blood for company. When I imagine that the outcome of whatever predicament I’m in will be that I will never have a normal life, the sheer melodrama helps put it in perspective. Also, I find it almost impossible to take my problems too seriously with the “Lonely Man” theme as the soundtrack.

At The Gutter: 10 Comics I Liked In 2013

Comics Editor Carol shares ten comics she liked (and hasn’t written about yet*) in 2013:

t’s an amazing time in comics right now. There are too many good ones for me to even read them all. Comics are like a hydra, but without the decapitation or even really the fighting. (So maybe not all that much like a hydra except I find one comic and then there are 3-6 more I become interested in).

Here are ten comics I haven’t written about. They include the following things: Weird Westerns, the undead, women who bring death, a dog who loves pizza, bros, the Nineties, Jordie Bellaire, Kieron Gillen, queer representation, non-human apes, Sparta, legendary heroes, robots, barbarians, swords, spears, dancing aliens, and many,  many ladies.
