Recently, the Telegraph ran a news story headlined Scientists Find Secret To Writing A Best-Selling Novel.
My first thought on reading the headline was Well, there’s a genie that’s never going back in the bottle. It wasn’t even negative so much as…cynical.

Stallior shows up in this one frame from 1970 and I don’t think he’s ever in another comic book again, but he might just be my favourite inhuman.
HE’S A CENTAUR WITH GIANT BALLS AND HIS NAME IS STALLIOR
[From Amazing Adventures #2, 1970.]
Stallion, Stallior, Stallissimus.
IT GOT BETTER.

isn’t squirrel girl a bit young for deadly? also, maybe I misremember, but wasn’t he gay? or was it bi/pan and I’ve just read too much spideypool?
Pan :) As confirmed by the writers after some indicative remarks in the Annual.
Squirrel Girl’s in college now, so I guess she’s at least legal…and I mean, there comes a time in the life of a Weapon Plus Project soldier when you’re going to have to admit that everyone is younger than you.
would that be squirrelpool or dead squirrel? bc I’m vetoing dead girl
SQUIRRELPOOL SOUNDS DELIGHTFULLY FUZZY.
Did you learn any new words?
I spent seven years in the theatre — electricians can’t teach me shit about swearing. :D
WHY DID YOU ANGER THE GODS
I did call Zeus a jerkoff earlier, didn’t I.
Internet is back, but I’m off to bed. For a bonus, the power went out literally at the pole outside my building; I am on the third floor and got to watch through my kitchen window as a guy in a cherrypicker swore at a power line for like fifteen minutes.
My power just died D: May not be back tonight, working on finding out what happened.
Robert Downey Jr. and son Indio, with photo filters. Or, if you prefer and want to tease scifigrl47, Steve’s latest sketch of Tony and DJ.
He deliberately left the pants out at DJ’s request.
Because today has been a crap day and because Knotta is not streaming tonight I’m gonna stream the original Clash Of The Titans, which is one of my comfort films, tonight at 7pm Central, or in about 90 minutes.
Stream opens in an hour for chatter and muzak!
I made a pool for all of you to join in on. Guess what’s wrong with me and win a prize!
(PS: there is no prize, the prize is a lie.)
I dunno, I think visually the gallbladder will never be surmounted. Apparently, because it’s the only photo I’ve sent to some people, when they mouse over my email address on google the gallbladder pops up. Which I find hilarious, even if they don’t.
I think Damien, whatever he is, might be weirder than the gallbladder, but really, at this point, he’s a smallish scar on a reddish patch of skin. Not exactly impressive.
I hope he’s something super-exotic. For the six grand it cost me to have him studied, I want some real action.
So, I was contacted privately (thank you) regarding the posts about Mieville today — I wasn’t aware of some recent (relatively speaking) allegations that have come to light which severely call into question the commitment to social justice I mentioned.
