Do you know where I can order the new Ghostbusters comics since I don't have a good comic store near me? :D
There’s some large comic shops that will ship out to you, depending on what country you’re in. I’ve linked issue #1, variant A (Corin Howell’s cover), but if you’re interested in other covers/issues, you’ll need to shop around the sites. Regular covers are lettered A, B and so on. There are also “retailer incentive” covers, that are only available to stores that order a certain number of issues (10, 25, 50) that cost more, but are usually pretty cool. We only know what Corin’s covers are for sure, at this point, but here’s what some of the others might be.
Despite what the website says, the guys running it have assured me that they’ll take on individual series orders, so you don’t need to have a huge pull list. They probably won’t be able to get in retailer incentive comics tho, if that’s what you’re looking for. Just shoot them an email with the title or previews code AUG170423.
It won’t be up until around release day tho, and I’d recommend buying physical single issue copies as it lends more weight to showing your support for the series. The series will need to sell lots of physical single issue copies for it to be a success and actually reach trade paperback. Ideally, we want to buy so many it sells out like 101 #1 did.
If anyone has any other places they’d recommend getting it, feel free to add to the list!

I have wanted to get a tattoo of an old (14-15 century) woodcut for a long time now. my favorites are the weird looking creatures that look cobbled together out of lots of other bits and pieces of animals and the snails fighting knights... If you were to choose a woodcut or drawing for a tattoo what would you pick?
I’m a terrible person to ask this, because I’d probably end up with, like, the physiologus panther, or a rampant crow, or the most disproving marginal fish of all.
But I do kind of like the worried rabbit riding a man-snail into battle on the right.
Nah, Peggy/Angie will never be canon. They cast and crew are just queerbaiting, but there's no way they'll make a Marvel protagonist bisexual (they'll have a lesbian protagonist first, I predict). And seeing how this show has a total disregard for historical truth when it comes to portraying the huge diversity 1940s NYC had in race and sexual orientation so far I doubt they'll make Angie queer. Would love to be proven wrong, of course, as I love Cartinelli but I have no hopes.
“There’s no way they’ll make a marvel protagonist bisexual” ok
No need to make one bisexual, they already have.
first part will be mostly cartinelli; second part is mostly POC/queer representation. so if anyone wants to continue this discussion with me (big deer eyes, please do) you can either comment on all of it or only the keynotes or ye; (this is like 1.5k meta on marve’s agent carter jsyk)
Bede’s Prose Life of St Cuthbert folio 10v - 11r from Chapter III
HOW HE CHANGED THE WINDS BY PRAYER, AND BROUGHT THE SCATTERED SHIPS SAFE TO LAND
FROM this time the lad becoming devoted to the Lord, as he afterwards assured his friends, often prayed to God amid dangers that surrounded him, and was defended by angelic assistance; nay, even in behalf of others who were in any danger, his benevolent piety sent forth prayers to God, and he was heard by Him who listens to the cry of the poor, and the men were rescued out of all their tribulations. There is, moreover, a monastery lying towards the south, not far from the mouth of the river Tyne, at that time consisting of monks, but now changed, like all other human things, by time, and inhabited by a noble company of virgins, dedicated to Christ. Now, as these pious servants of God were gone to bring from a distance in ships, up the above-named river, some timber for the use of the monastery, and had already come opposite the place where they were to bring the ships to land, behold a violent wind, rising from the west, carried away their ships, and scattered them to a distance from the river’s mouth. The brethren, seeing this from the monastery, launched some boats into the river, and tried to succour those who were on board the vessels, but were unable, because the force of the tide and violence of the winds overcame them. In despair therefore of human aid, they had recourse to God, and issuing forth from the monastery, they gathered themselves together on a point of rock, near which the vessels were tossing in the sea: here they bent their knees, and supplicated the Lord for those whom they saw under such imminent danger of destruction.
But the Divine will was in no haste to grant these vows, however earnest; and this was, without a doubt, in order that it might be seen what effect was in Cuthbert’s prayers. For there was a large multitude of people standing on the other bank of the river and Cuthbert also was among them. Whilst the monks were looking on in sorrow, seeing the vessels, five in number, hurried rapidly out to sea, so that they looked like five sea-birds on the waves, the multitude began to deride their manner of life, as if they had deserved to suffer this loss, by abandoning the usual modes of life, and framing for themselves new rules by which to guide their conduct. Cuthbert restrained the insults of the blasphemers, saying, “What are you doing, my brethren, in thus reviling those whom you see hurried to destruction ? Would it not be better and more humane to entreat the Lord in their behalf, than thus to take delight in their misfortunes? ” But the rustics, turning on him with angry minds and angry mouths, exclaimed, “ Nobody shall pray for them: may God spare none of them ! for they have taken away from men the ancient rites and customs, and how the new ones are to be attended to, nobody knows. ” At this reply, Cuthbert fell on his knees to pray, and bent his head towards the earth; immediately the power of the winds was checked, the vessels, with their conductors rejoicing, were cast upon the land near the monastery, at the place intended. The rustics blushing for their infidelity, both on the spot extolled the faith of Cuthbert as it deserved, and never afterwards ceased to extol it: so that one of the most worthy brothers of our monastery, from whose mouth I received this narrative, said that he had often, in company with many others, heard it related by one of those who were present, a man of the most rustic simplicity, and altogether incapable of telling an untruth.
