New Ms. Marvel!
Did this for fun in between issues. I’m an unabashed fan of Adrian Alphona’s (duh) and really enjoyed G. Willow Wilson’s Air—so checking out this new title from them is a no-brainer for me!

Neon Genesis Evangelion (Bandai - N64 - 1999)
“The gameplay is mostly a fighting game between the Evas and Angels. There are three ways the player can play. The most common gameplay is Plain Fighting, where the player takes control of an Eva on a ‘3D-2D’ Course, walking back and forth, attacking the enemy. The battles are mainly focused on pressing correct commands to activate cinematic attacks and grabs known as ‘Actions’, while basics attacks are secondary. Another gameplay style used in the game is weponring. Various parts of the game include minigames as missions, where the player takes control of the Eva’s weponring in order to accomplish a mission or objective. The final gameplay element used is free-for-all, where the player is still on a ‘3D-2D’ plane, but can move freely back and forth. This mode is used in missions 12, 12.5 and 13.”
“It’s like: Would you ever do a sandal movie?” laughs Joel. “It’s big,” says Ethan, grinning. “We’re interested in the big questions. And we don’t (expletive) around with subtext. This one especially.”
Though their movies usually revel in the absurdity of life’s predicaments, Ethan promises this film has answers: “It’s not like our piddly ‘A Serious Man.’” Chimes Joel: “That was a cop-out. We just totally chickened out on that one.”
“We hadn’t grown up,” says Ethan. “In that respect, OK, we have matured. We’re ready to answer the big questions now."

Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.

Leap of faith. #AvengersAI
The many faces of Galactus from Fantastic Four #262 by John Byrne. Colors by Glynis Wein. 1984.
John shared this behind the scenes story:
The most likely inspiration for my take on Galactus was a short story I read in one of the DC sci-fi comics of the early Sixties. A flying saucer crashes outside a small Midwestern town, and the occupant, without revealing himself, asks various local artisans to build certain objects that will help him make repairs. Based on these objects, each of the craftsmen comes up with a different idea of what the alien looks like. At the end of the story, the alien emerges from his ship and each craftsman sees just what he expected. Turns out the alien is actually formless, and those looking at him/it “project” their expectations.
Quite a while after I did my Galactus story, I was reminded of this tale, and realized that even tho I had “forgotten” it, the basic parts were most likely lurking in my creative subconscious.
