Aren’t they the sweetest, most cartoonishly fit family you ever did see? Aren’t they!? (In reference to this comic and a joke from Twitter, but here’s a great excuse to finally tell about her family! As well as why that is a thing she can do.)
i love ace jughead in the comics because i think it’s really important representation and fits his comic character
i LOVE betty and jughead together in the show because i think there’s an added element of tragedy to both of them that isn’t there in the comics (and i say this as only a very casual reader of them from many many years ago so i could be wrong)
they’re both so much more than they appear to be and from the outside, they might seem like opposites - the sunny girl next door and the surly boy from the wrong side of the tracks - but the truth is, they both have jagged pieces that fit together, they both want to find the truth, they both want to be more than their parents
their platonic friendship is so so so sincerely great in the comics, but i am really really loving their mutually respectful relationship in the show even more
the way betty nurtures jughead’s writing and gives him the opportunity to write for the school newspaper, the way jughead accepts her offer even though it goes against his anti-establishment ways, the way jughead plays her movie suggestion at the last night of the drive in, the way jughead stands up for her to archie, the way they are committed to finding out the truth about jason’s murder together, even if it reveals unpleasant truths, the way they trust each other and the way they work together
this is a true partnership and it’s so great seeing the reciprocity on both sides
In light of the latest NASA news can you recommend some comics set it space? Including, of corse, Southern Cross which is great!
Hello! Lou here, from The ComiXologist podcast crew. You know I love Southern Cross, so that’s an excellent place to start.
When I saw this ask, I turned to podcast co-host Slim and said, “Want to help me make some recs on Tumblr?” And without missing a beat, he goes, “Fear Agent.” Which does take place in space! So, that’s Slim’s contribution. (Also, possibly Slim is psychic?)
When downandout alien exterminator Heath Huston stumbles upon an extraterrestrial plot to commit genocide against the human species, he must put down the bottle and resume his roll as a peacekeeper… as the last Fear Agent. This volume collects Fear Agent #1 #4 and sports new cover art! “Fear Agent is absolutely everything I love about comics in one fantastic package.” – Matt Fraction, Casanova, Iron Fist, The Punisher
I have to recommend Descender, because space doesn’t get much more beautiful than when Dustin Nguyen paints it. (Also, it’s on sale through 2/27/17!)
One young robot’s struggle to stay alive in a universe where all androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet. A rip-roaring and heart-felt cosmic odyssey that pits humanity against machine, and world against world, to create a sprawling space opera from the creators of Trillium, Sweet Tooth, and Little Gotham.
You know who else makes space look gorgeous? Christian Ward. ODY-C is an intensely gorgeous book, and Matt Fraction does amazing work adapting Homer’s epic to a sci-fi setting.
An epic 26 centuries in the making: In the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home. A gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins HERE, by MATT FRACTION (CASANOVA, SEX CRIMINALS, SATELLITE SAM) and CHRISTIAN WARD (INFINITE VACATION, OLYMPUS).
On the Marvel side of things in space, Dan Slott and Mike Allred do a bang-up job with Silver Surfer.
The Silver Surfer, sentinel of the cosmos, is often alone on his quest to defend space. All that changes when Surfer meets earthling Dawn Greenwood, a young woman determined to push the Surfer’s boundaries. Plus, the introduction of the villain known as Never Queen! When Surfer tries to return Dawn home, he finds himself in his strangest battle yet with Shuma-Gorath!
Finally, the NASA news made me think of Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque’s Letter 44. Only, IRL, I’m sure everything will be fine. *nervous laughter* Anyway, it’s definitely a great read!
On Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close - assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.
Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.
Aahhh, I'm happy you like it X3. I was afraid for a moment that it might not be that great! Thank you for making the comic and also liking my fanfic!! Also, for those who liked my fanfiction, Thank you too!! I feel happy you all like it!! (Also, do please support this blog with lots of love, kat needs it)
archie- has no personality but that’s not that different from comics archie so whatever. whoever plays him is really hot
betty and veronica - i love both of them in this and veronica is super hot and i support feminism and gay rights thanks to them
jughead- cole sprouse is clearly just playing himself here and he really isn’t like comics!jughead tbh and i actually have more feelings about this but im lazy
kevin- not great gay rep imo. i never read any comics w him in them and i mean i appreciate the gesture and idk what he was like in the comics but in the show he’s just a stereotype and not b/c he’s feminine, that’s great, the fact that he’s just a rude asshole in a *~sassy gay guy way like idk i’m not into it but he could always get more depth
