Parting Shot: Obama vs. Kid Spider-Man is Kind of Adorable

By Joseph Hughes

This picture, taken by photographer Peter Souza just a few days before Halloween, shows President Obama facing off against the son of a White House staff member, who’s dressed up as Spider-Man. Not only is the child’s thwip hand impressively strong, but props to Obama for going all in with his portrayal of a man trapped in Spidey’s webbing. It’s clearly not his first time doing this.

Ms. Marvel #1: Embracing The Paradox [Review]

By Joe Hughes

James Baldwin once described America as a “country devoted to the death of the paradox.” He was right, of course. We’re more comfortable seeing things in extremes, in black and white. A person from one culture or background can be instantly labeled as an upstanding citizen, exemplifying everything good about “real America.” Superman is from Kansas, not San Francisco.

But if you’re from another background, you can be instantly labeled as something else entirely: lazy, entitled, a thug, “Un-American.” To many, there are those who fit into a certain label based on where they grew up, what school they went to, what church they attend. To think otherwise, to consider that there is more to us than blanket, largely basely assumptions, isn’t as easy. And for many, it’s too uncomfortable. It’s too much work.

Ms. Marvel #1 stands in stark contrast to that sentiment. Written by G. Willow Wilson and illustrated by Adrian Alphona, each major character introduced in this first issue is a celebration and exploration of the paradox. It is a book full of characters who remind you of people you know, or people you knew. It’s a book that’s unique, but nonetheless familiar. It is also, by almost any measure, one of the best first issues of a superhero comic in years. And, if we’re being honest, it probably needed to be.

Parting Shot: New Cartoon Clip Shows Axe Cop is the President We Deserve

By Joseph Hughes

Because the new Axe Cop cartoon – based on the comic co-created by Ethan Nicolle and his then five-year-old brother Malachai and starring the voice of Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman as Axe Cop – seems destined to be amazing, excitement about the show has only grown since it was announced last week that it will debut on July 27th. Recognizing that making fans wait that much longer would be manifestly cruel, the folks at ADHD, who are producing the show,have released a new clip Axe Cop clip, the first since the Halloween inspired one from last October.
