kevin wada cover!

Comic fans, Iceman #1 is out today - Marvel’s first solo ongoing series featuring a gay leading man. It’s penned by the amazing Sina Grace and even features a gorgeous Kevin Wada cover. Now, seeing as it’s Pride Month, the timing couldn’t be more auspicious, yet Marvel is still dragging it’s heels in publicising it, despite having rammed the grossly offensive Hydra!Cap and Secret Empire insanity down our throats for months.

Evidently this is so they can blame the lack of sales on a lack of appeal for an LGBT lead and inevitably scrap the title - but prove them wrong! Pick it up if you can, take a chance on dear ol’ Bobby and show the powers that be, that diversity sells and representation matters.

Simon Snow & Tyrannus Basilton “Baz” Grimm-Pitch, Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

“Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what is roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.”

I’ve read all of Rainbow Rowell’s books, but as a certified Harry Potter geek, Fangirl and Carry On hold a special place in my heart. Add to that Kevin Wada’s incredible cover art for the paperback edition?

THE MUSE MUST BE SATED, MY FRIENDS! ;)

Anyway! Available for purchase HERE!

(Oh, and you should read the book. It’s wonderful. The paperback is SO BEAUTIFUL, and you can get it on Amazon.)

Pleasebegoodpleasebegoodpleasebegoodpleasebegoodpleasebegoood…… Please make it that writer outgrew her fetishizing of Asian people…pleae make it that editor Nick Lowe won’t fuck it up like everything else related to Runaways he touched since vol.3, pleasebegoodpleasebegoodpleasebegoodpleasebegood…..

The silver lining, even if it won’t be good I’ll have a Skottie Young variant cover and Venomized Pride variant, both of those sound like a good poster material.

BTW, still mad at lack fo Klara.

The paperback edition of Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On will hit shelves in May 2017 and it will have this new cover! Comic book artist Kevin Wada designed this beautiful cover. You might recognize his style because he also designed the Six Of Crows cards. Personally, I think this cover is very fitting. I absolutely recognize Simon and Baz in his design. If you haven’t read the book yet, read the blurb below.


Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen. That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here - it’s their last year at Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On is a love letter to love stories and the power of words - to every ‘chosen one’ who ever had more on their mind than saving the world…

But seriously, can we talk about the description for upcoming Iceman #1??

Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most. But while reflecting on what he’s accomplished over the years, he realizes that the legacy he’s built is a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships. Not only that, but now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream and he’s more put together than Bobby ever was: already a world-class hero in his own right, but also totally comfortable in his own skin, complete with a relationship with a handsome Inhuman to boot. In this new ongoing series penned by Sina Grace (Burn the Orphanage, Self-Obsessed) and drawn by Alessandro Vitti (SECRET WARRIORS), Bobby realizes that the time is never or now, and sets out to build a life and legacy he can be proud of…and be the best ICEMAN he can be!

Because I still can’t read it without tearing up a little.

deadpool v. gambit was the single most meaningless, memey, annoying thing, a goddamned affront to kevin wada’s cover art, it dishonored me, my family, my cow
