this is legit btw
I mean, there were folkloric heroes like Robin Hood before the Scarlet Pimpernel, but they didn’t really do the secret identity — people might not have known Robin Hood’s real identity but he wasn’t out living a double life and his costume was just what he and his buds wore in the forest, whereas the Pimpernel was actually doing the exact same thing as Bruce Wayne (pampered aristocrat by day, avenging hero by night)
also I wanna point out that the Scarlet Pimpernel was actually the leader of a league of twenty people also living double lives — Baroness Orczy also invented the first superhero team

Also The Scarlet Pimpernel is goddamned amazing and if you’ve never read it you’re missing out.

first computer code then science fiction now this we need to kick those fake nerd boys out

mcstack asked: Meeting you at WonderCon was really cool! It totally gave me an excuse to go back and read Sacrifice again. That book may have influenced my decision to become an Aztec by attending San Diego State.

Right on, thank you for saying hi! Go Aztecs! (Are they any good? I have no idea.)

Anonymous asked: LOVED the lesbian/bisexual representation in Uncanny. Will we see more non-straight characters in any of your upcoming/current projects?

Thank you, wish I could have done more.

Representation for non-white cishet males is always something I am thinking about, on all my projects. It’s more difficult in some circumstances. But I am always thinking about how to do better.

Anonymous asked: how do you know if you'd be good with some? i have serious commitment issues and i'm scared. help. i don't wanna get hurt

Dear Anon, what an excellent question. I’m 37 and I still get crushes all the damn time. They can be confusing as hell. Some of them are crushes you should pursue, and some of them are crushes you should keep to yourself. Telling the difference is an important life skill for any crush monster. There are some things you can do, that…well, it won’t make it easier, but it will give you some peace.

Sometimes a new crush is like a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs that you didn’t order. It just appears in front of you and you’re all — damn, where did this come from?? I did NOT expect this! All that pasta is all tangled up and shit! What the hell are the green bits in the meatballs, do I even like green bits? The sauce — anything could be in there!! This is scary YET I’M SO HUNGRY!

What you need to do is sit down, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Smell the spaghetti. Pay attention to how it makes you feel. This is called listening to your gut, and it will serve you well in life. You can only get good at it with PRACTICE. So why not start now? Ask yourself some questions about your crush:

"Do I want to make out with this person?"

Gonna assume the answer is a big helllllllllll yesssssss. So far so good!

"Does this person share the same values I do?"

I’m not talking about — do we like the same anime? Or, do we agree about gun control? I’m not even talking about marriage and babies. I’m talking day to day stuff. How do you prefer to communicate — text, call, chat? How do you choose spend your time? How do you choose to show affection? That sort of thing.

This isn’t about right or wrong. It isn’t about judging your crush. But if you’re “right for each other” that means you’ll be spending a lot of time with each other, IRL or otherwise. How are you going to feel, being in the mix of this person’s life?

"Does this person make me feel good?"

When you’re with them, when you talk to them, when you think about them, do you feel — warm, valued, excited? Or do you feel — doubtful, anxious, melancholy? If it’s the latter — it is not the fault of your crush. This does not mean your crush is a bad person. It’s your gut telling you this is not a comfortable situation — for YOU.

"Do you feel lucky, punk?"

I’m gonna give you this one, Anon — the answer is YES!!! You feel HELLA lucky, youngblood! You might be saying: no no no I do not feel lucky AT ALL. But you need to stow that, you glorious warrior of love. Because so much of the beauty of life comes from taking chances. Take it from the guy who self-published a comic about bestiality. You make zero shots you don’t take, fortune favors the bold, etc etc. And this gem: 

"The way it works is, you do the thing you’re scared shitless of, and you get the courage AFTER you do it, not before you do it."

George Clooney said that. And he’s right: that’s the way it works. If you doubt yourself, just remember there’s a comic book writer in California who believes in you and he’s got big hair and glasses. 

NOTICE what I did not mention anywhere up there — FEAR. You’re scared. We’re all scared. None of us want to get hurt, but…we all do, eventually. Your fear will not save you from hurt. It will only BLOCK you from great things. Fear comes and fear goes. It’s like a fart that you let out while you’re smelling the spaghetti. If you judge the spaghetti based on your dark sewage fart…damn you are gonna miss out on a lot of great pasta!

And NOTICE how we’re framing these questions — on YOU being HONEST with YOUR FEELINGS. This has nothing to do with judgement or blame or criminalizing your crush. Their behavior is beyond your control anyway, so fuck it! Don’t even get wrapped up in that. Pay attention to yourself. Trust your instincts! This is called listening to your gut, and it will serve you well in life. There’s two things you need to do to get good at it: 

  1. be real with yourself (honesty)
  2. own your emotions (responsibility)

I hope this helps you Anon. Think hard about those questions — if they come up YES, or even CLOSE ENOUGH TO YES, then go for it. Remember, you’re already 2 for 4! But if not…move on to the next crush. Trust me, when you get good at this, you’ll have five a day, and they will all be cute.

Please drop me a line and let me know how it works out. Your pal — Shumphries

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Look, I can understand circumstances where, yeah, reporting it is difficult and you would choose not to.  There are times when you literally HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE and it sucks, and those assholes are taking advantage of it.  Not every woman can put her source of income at risk like that, and the one thing the article gets right is that the laws DON’T always work, you are NOT guaranteed protection.

Which is why we need to keep fighting for better laws and better enforcement of policies.  Which is why when you CAN report it, you SHOULD and FIGHT against this mindset that it’s just something women have to deal with if we want to sit at the boys table.  Harassment is NOT just an inconvenience, it is dehumanizing, it is upsetting, it is a weapon used against women and it is BEYOND NOT OKAY. 

And of course: why the fuck are you acting like women should have to control whether they report it or not instead of the very basic fact that MEN SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS?!?!

FUUUUUUUUUCK EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING.

You said all the things I meant to say but didn’t while blinded with rage and flailing at the keyboard. :)
