there are real people out there who genuinely believe that if you rescind their book deal or album deal or tv deal or whatever due to public opposition, that’s censorship. imagine you’re a carpenter, and you make a really shitty chair, and the boss carpenter says “we’re not gonna sell that” and you tell them that that’s a violation of your freedom of speech
by clicking ( here ), you will be able to find gif icons of sabrina carpenter, mostly of her as maya in girl meets world. all of the gifs were made by me from scratch and will be updated as i work my way through more episodes/personal videos of her. also, it would mean the world to me if you let me know in case you want to add it to another pack!

Do you have any good recommendations for old comics? I would love to get into them but honestly I have no idea where to start.
The Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Fantastic Four was the towering
achievement of the 1960s and my favorite comic of all time. Their current
shabby treatment by their parent company is inexcusable; Marvel was built by
Fantastic Four. FF is my favorite comic ever because it is “hot” and “cold” at
the same time, a balancing act that is hard to do in science fiction. It has
far out scifi adventures like shrinking to explore a world inside an atom or
fighting Galactus the World Devourer, or a villain as melodramatic as Doctor
Doom…but we believe in it because of how grounded it is in a real world, with
wisecracking, warm characters we like. Every FF story ends in some far out way,
but we believe it because of how it starts with something everyday, like the
Thing buying hot dogs in Central Park while walking with his girlfriend. It’s like
Stan discovered the formula for Coca-Cola; it’s very, very, very hard to tell a
bad Fantastic Four story. Sure, FF is great, but it gets ultra-great starting
around issue 43, and has an unbroken string of the greatest stories ever for 40
issues: the Coming of Galactus, the introduction of the Black Panther, the
introduction of the Inhumans, Doctor Doom stealing the Silver Surfer’s powers
(what a shocker that was).
Joe Kubert’s Enemy Ace comic is maybe the best war book
ever written, about an honorable German flying ace in World War I. Hans von
Hammer had noble and chivalrous instincts: he saluted enemies even after he
killed them, and refused to shootan unarmed foe. He once
befriended a wolf in the Black Forest, because the both of them were killers, and that wolf was his only real friend. He was the ultimate example of
how war shapes even decent men into killers.
Russ Manning’s Magnus Robot Fighter is a crackerjack
action-scifi comic that has aged better, not worse since the 1960s, because it’s
all about the terror of a society that is overmechanized and under surveillance,
where you hate machines but also need them and can’t get rid of them. The fully
detailed, realized science fiction world of North Am is what makes it so
interesting. Magnus is the Defiant Man in a screwy world; I wonder why John
Carpenter never took an interest in making Magnus Robot Fighter as a movie, it
would so fit his sensibilities.
If you ask guys who were around for it what they like
about Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar, you get the same answer if you asked a wired
little kid why they like sugar and caffeine. It was one of the first and best
of the “creator owned, adult scifi comics” to come around in the early 1980s,
with Vance Dreadstar leading rebels against an Empire. There’s also some
bizarre Moorcock inspired mysticism at work. Best of all, Dreadstar is now
widely available and reprinted; you owe it to yourself to check it out.
Speaking of adult oriented scifi comics, check out Alan
Zelenetz’s Alien Legion. It’s about a futuristic French Foreign Legion made up
of convicts, drifters, cutthroats, and criminals from across the known planets.
The Legionnaires are expendable and are often sent on suicide missions,
political objectives are often at odds with military ones, and a lot of them
talk about desertion at times.
Star Brand by Jim Shooter is maybe the only comic that
ever did anything interesting with the dead end idea, what would a superhero look like
in the real world? It’s a comedy about how we never live up to our potential. When the
hero comes back to earth from space, he finds he gets incredibly lost and can’t
find his hometown. When he tries to stop a hostage crisis, he realizes that
even with powers, he wonders what he could really do that wouldn’t make things
worse or escalate the situation. It’s the people that make it worth it: our hero has conflicted feelings
about two women, one a single mom, and the other is a girl that loves him, but
so much that it doesn’t feel healthy.
Dave Stevens’ Rocketeer is a great retro comic, but the selling
point is something that never entirely made it into the film adaptation: it’s all about
the sex appeal of good looking girls. I once asked an art teacher of mine what it would take to make a living as an artist, and he told me, “draw good looking girls. If you can, you will never be out of work.” Well, Dave Stevens could, and he’d still be doing it today if not for his tragic passing.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to cry a lot (”sad is happy for deep people”), check out Strikeforce: Morituri, an early 80s comic with a fascinating premise. In order to fight off an alien invasion, a means of giving people superpeople is created, but it has a horrible cost: it gives you only a year to live. It’s all about mortality, nobility, and sacrifice and is really melancholic. Essentially, every single character has a terminal illness.
