So I’m sitting at the Oklahoma City airport, because of reasons, and it occurs to me that there’s a Museum of Women Pilots here.

I think it would be awesome to have any OKC-area Carol Corps members meet up and do a visit to the museum, just because. After all, the history of female aviators was so important to “In Pursuit of Flight”.

Is there any sort of interest in that?

I’m in Tulsa, but I’d be up for going to OKC for that.

Behold my Carol Corps selfie. My face is red like Carol’s sash in this photo because I just finished running three miles. I’ve lost 15 pounds since the new year thanks to my superhero fitspo regime. Captain Marvel helps me go higher, further, faster, more!

HAWKEYE #21
MATT FRACTION (W)
ANNIE WU (A)
Cover by DAVID AJA
The Finale, Part 1:
• David. Clint. Barney. The Building. The Tracksuit Draculas. The Clown.
• Ever seen “Rio Bravo?” Check it out, it’s pretty good.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99

Solicited for June— Part I of “The Finale.” Hmm…

From Fraction’s HAWKGUY FLOW:

#21
“The F-Word, Part 1: Rio Bravo”
David. Clint. Barney. The Building. The Tracksuit Draculas. The Clown. Ever seen “Rio Bravo”? Check it out, it’s pretty good.
#22
“The F-Word, Part 2: El Dorado”
David. I wonder if they’ll actually let me call it “The F Word.” We’ll see. And while I know everything that happens here and in 21, I am telling you very little.
TRADE 4 will be called RIO BRAVO. It will collect Clint’s slow-motion nervous breakdown in the lead-up to his darkest hour
#17, #12, #13, #15, #19, #21, #22
Wasn’t expecting that “f-word” to be finale. Based on his description of TPB vol. 4 it doesn’t sound like the end, but maybe he was just trying not to spoil things for us.

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1
story: KIERON GILLEN
art / cover A & B: JAMIE MCKELVIE & MATT WILSON
cover C: BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY
JUNE 18 / 40 PAGES / FC / M $3.50
Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to start a new ongoing superhero fantasy with a beautiful oversized issue. Welcome to THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, where gods are the ultimate pop stars. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

Image Solicits for June 2014 are live.

Still can’t get over how fucking serendipitous it is that this book is being released the one week I’m going to be vacationing in the UK. I’d already planned to be in London for the 18th just in case >__<

Answer
  • Question: I just saw someone's comment about how the scene from The Movement #8 where Mouse kissed Tremor made them uncomfortable, which brought up the question: How long did Mouse live on the streets with the rats? Maybe 5 or 6 years? So, even though he interacted with some other street kids, it seems most of his socialization for the past few years was with the rats... which would explain some of this forward behavior, right? He literally doesn't know any better? - molliehaswords

    gailsimone:

    Yeah, but even before then, he was not relating to other people in socially acceptable ways. We saw him attack a bully by jumping on him and biting him even as just a young kid.

    I think Mouse has no idea of how to behave with people, but that story is not done yet, I promise!

    As it stands right now we have a male character sexually harassing a female character in the story. It doesn’t matter to me that Mouse just “doesn’t know any better.” There are messages coming from all over that it acceptable for men to harass women like this, like this situation in the Young Justice cartoon.

    I am confident that in future issues Gail will resolve this in an interesting and meaningful way, but for now I am really shocked at people just writing off this sexual harassment and at Gail herself making seemingly flippant comments about it.

The Movement #8

I can’t figure out if Mouse has game or just a lot of delusions.

I’m really enjoying the Movement, but this scene made me very uncomfortable. Tremor is visually and vocally upset with Mouse non-consensually kissing her and she remains upset pages later when Mouse still insists that they are in love. That’s not flirtation, that’s harassment. Gail’s comment above makes it sound like she doesn’t agree :/

Understood…but keep watching, more to this than we see here.

within the context of the story it is clear that Tremor isn’t threatened by Mouse, and his crush on her is considering a childish nuisance more than harrassment. He would never hurt her, and she knows that.
You can’t judge one page of a story by itself without context.

I’m not judging one page of a story out of context. I’ve read the entire series. I don’t think it matters that Tremor finds Mouse a nuisance rather than a threat. It’s still harassment, and I would recommend that you read up on microaggressions .
