Warnings: It’s fucking Deadpool. 

Summary: Your girl Nega hooks you up with Wade Wilson.

The bar was dingy as fuck.

Fuck it was downright biowaste, but it was the place your date picked. And now you were questioning the whole damn thing.

Cursing Nega under your breath for setting you up with her ‘friend’, you hustled into the bar and looked down at your phone. Quickly you texted the number of Wade Wilson, the man you had been talking to on and off for the last week and a half.

“I’m here.”

A second later, your cell buzzed. “Holy shit you’re way hotter in person. Fuck me.”

Another buzz. “Full disclosure, I have a boner.”

Another buzz. “Also my penis is big.”

Taako is definitely the most fun to design & style but it was starting to feel a little weird to draw him without the squad.

I mean like... you see black kids who aren't even preteens yet being thrown in juvie. Black kids who are still in the single digit ages having dozens of suspensions. This dramatically inflates the incarceration and arrest rates of black people.. "They commit the most crimes!" is such complete fuckign bullshit a 5 year old doesn't commit any fucking crimes but will have a dire permanent record

The US school system is terrifying because it allows that systemic racism to mark kids SO early. Having police officers in schools who can ARREST kids for… Doing things that would normally merit a detention?

And that has resulted in police brutality in schools and the comments are… Do predictable, a black girl didn’t listen to a teacher and stand up? Then that officer was apparently right to physically slam her to the ground and arrest her.

Lazy Sunday- 10 Years

2015 is the 10 year anniversary of the SNL digital short.

10 years.

Lazy Sunday was the first. The iconic video was shot in days, on a low-quality borrowed camera. The group spend the night before the show editing it for broadcast, and freaking out.

Lazy Sunday made Youtube, and has been called the video that launched viral videos, with millions of views before it was pulled.

But if you look closely, you can just see a bunch of guys who nobody knew, filming, with no permits and having fun.

Samberg and Parnell walk up to a clerk who has no idea what’s going on..

And start rapping together.

But blink, and you’ll miss it, when they catch her smiling at the camera…

… as Samberg and Parnell ham it up in front of her !

Samberg said the best thing about the video was that, because it was pre-taped, they had no idea how the audience would react to it. When you hear the audience laughing, on the video, you’re hearing the same sounds that the cast heard as they waited- the reaction that told Samberg et. al that they had a hit. 



Guys, I know these are fun, but please be careful - if you’re an American born before 2011, people can mine the data of the responses to this meme to figure out Social Security Numbers or gain access to other important pieces of information.

First off - how often have you been asked your mother’s maiden name as a security question? Yeah, you should already be seeing a problem right there.

But that’s just the beginning.

If you tell me where and when you were born, I can figure out the first 5 digits of your SSN no problem. The first 3 digits is based on where you were born (or where you applied for the number, if you immigrated here), with the second two digits theoretically being an administrative number, but in practice is determined by when you were born (or when you applied) within that location.

Now, the last 4 digits of SSNs are the most commonly shared - meaning if you ever list those 4 digits with your birth date and place together in one place, I can easily figure out your entire SSN.

However, the secret is that those last 4 digits (pre-2011) aren’t entirely random. Within each grouping of the first five digits, they are handed out in order/sequentially - so the first baby/applicant within a certain date-range and location gets 001, the second one gets 002, next one gets 003, etc etc. And birth records are pretty easy to get your hands on. Depending on your resources, it’s not that difficult to sort through them if you even have the person’s own name, and it gets even easier if you also have their mother’s name. Even just the first few letters of your mother’s name would help. You can use that to approximate what “order” someone would’ve been in, within that group of people born or who applied for an SSN within that date range and location.

A lot of us on here state our ages (which can be used to figure out your birthdate) and locations right in our bio. Americans, if you did this meme while having your age and location in your bio (and you live in the same state or region as the one you were born in), I could guess your entire SSN to within a few dozen digits/options. And if I were willing to pay for additional data, I could probably figure out exactly what it is.

I don’t know how identification numbers work in other countries, but given most countries have some form of numerical identification given to citizens at birth, I wouldn’t be surprised if birth place, birth date, and/or mother’s name could be considered sensitive information in those places, too.

It’s not just these pieces of data, either.

You know that “pornstar name” meme, about using the street you grew up on, your own middle name, and/or a pet’s name? Yeah, notice how those are also some of the most common security questions that pop up around sensitive information?

Always be careful with memes that depend on your personal information. Names and birth dates are so public that I don’t worry about those, but once they start asking about things like where you were born, where you grew up, street names, pet names, etc., I automatically side-eye them.

And if it asks for my mother’s maiden name, like this one right here?

Even if an individual meme on its own probably can’t be used to steal your identity, answer enough of these and someone can mine your blog, Facebook, or other social media account for all the information they need to do it, anyway.

Be careful, guys - these memes are fun, but also dangerous.

The Devil Is In The Details

Rather than a walk down memory lane, today I thought we’d flash forward to something a bit more current.

For every page, cover or poster image I work on, I guarantee you there is a waste basket, actual or digital, filled with dozens of unused designs and discarded drawings. Sometimes I’ll save some of those rejects if I feel they have merit for another project down the road, but that’s a conversation for another day.

The image on the left is the Daredevil promotional poster that was given away at last year’s New York Comic Con for our big Netflix signing.  But the poster as you see it wasn’t originally designed that way. To the right is how I was originally envisioning it, with more of Daredevil full body, in his masked vigilante costume as he ran along the building’s precipice. This was just one of many different incarnations revolving around the same theme.

After reworking it well over a dozen times and vetting it through several folks at Marvel I finally came to the layout on the left. Something about the claustrophobic feel and how it put greater emphasis on the bloody fist really lent itself more to the feel of the show. The beginnings of The Man Without Fear, raw, undisciplined and unpredictable.


Happy birthday to Roy Chapman Andrews! The famed explorer, fossil-finder, and Museum Director was born on January 26, 1880. 

Head over to the Museum blog to learn about Andrews’s time as a whale researcher, an expedition leader, and head of the American Museum of Natural History. Want to see more? The Museum’s Digital Special Collections contain dozens of historic images of Andrews in the field.
