Harley Quinn Part 2There's been a LOT of talk about this contest. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 Most of it negative, some of it positive, and some of it trying VERY hard to justify it. I've already said my peace about it in 3 consecutive comics which you can read here:Harley Quinn Part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
But outside that there's still a lot of debate going on and I wanted to touch upon it. First up, there were a lot of people trying to justify "why" she was committing suicide. A lot of these people suggested things like "she's a crazy character and she's unstable so of course she would do something like this" or "she'd probably do this if the joker left her." And while those people DO have a point... all of it is rendered null and void when the creators of the contest come right out and say that the point of these attempted suicides was a tongue-in-cheek gag at the awful shit they were gonna put Harley through. As in, she sees what they're gonna write a

Wow. That whole bit about the winter soldier being Bucky Barns? Complete red herring for the major plot twist that upends pretty much the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe at this point! Kudos Marvel for keeping that plot secret for so long!
Also, not only is it a great political thriller in its own right with strong parallels to current events, but it's also a great character building movie. Black Widow in particular goes through a very strong arc in the film.
Oh yeah and the teaser at the end? Fuckin' hell Marvel... !!!!!
Awesome movie. Strongly recommend!

Meh. I honestly have stopped caring about smash bros since Melee. Can't afford a wii-u, don't really desire the game. Glad everyone else is pumped but personally I just can't muster energy to care.
Question though... Who thought giving Zero Suit Samus 90's inspired Rebook sneaker heels was a good design choice? They look atrocious.
brentalfloss: The Comic is EndingToday we announced publicly that brentalfloss: The Comic http://brentalflossthecomic.com/ will be ending by the end of this month. After today's strip there will be 5 more and then it will be done. The website will continue to exist, so the comics themselves aren't going anywhere, and I will continue to repost the backlog of strips to DA until they run out, but by the end of August there will be no more new strips.brentalfloss: The Comic is Ending1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sad to see it go after doing 200 episodes. This has been one of my favorite comic related jobs I've ever had and an incredibly steady and reliable one at that. I personally would love to keep doing this job for a couple more years, but Brent and Dan both want to move on to other projects and we've all come to the mutual agreement that 200 is a perfect stopping point. Nothing lasts forever, ya know?
To be honest, I am a little surprised brentalfloss: The Comic lasted this long. Things were a little rocky at first, and it took all 3 of us a while to get used to each others sty
Stuff From E3 That I -Personally- Find InterestingI’ll be honest. I haven’t really been “in” to gaming in quite some time. Chock it up to the fact that I don’t own ANY of the current gen consoles and that my job has taken up too much of my life to really dedicate much time to playing anything.

Wayforward’s success has allowed Shantae to finally get an ending to the 3 part storyline that spans decades. Starting from the Gameboy Color, going to NDS-ware, and now finally as a new game available both on the 3DS and Wii-U eShop.

Noah and The Winter Solider DiscussionNoahNoah and The Winter Solider Discussion5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve already mentioned that I enjoyed Noah in a previous journal, but after talking with friends and family and reading reviews online I feel inclined to bring it up again. See, Noah is under a HUGE assault like no other movie in recent years has been. On one side Christians are lambasting it for deviating too much from the sanitized version of Noah’s Ark they’re familiar with and “removing god” from the storyline (I’ll get back to why that’s ridiculous in a minute), while atheists are lambasting it as more of the same “Christianity propaganda” they’ve worked so hard to avoid. The bottom line being that BOTH sides are refusing to see the movie due to their ideological beliefs.
And that’s just sad.
Noah is not a perfect film, but it’s still one that I think everyone should watch, both religious and non. Noah is, at it’s core, an interpretation of the classic story by an amazing film mak

Necessary Background Info
If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey
The Metroid Prime Games Never HappenedAfter posting that journal about how Mako Mori has parallels with Samus Aran, I kept thinking about how the chronology of the Metroid series doesn’t make much sense. What bothers me is the Prime games. They just don’t “fit” properly within the rest of the timeline. So I started to do a little digging to see if anyone else agreed and I found this:The Metroid Prime Games Never Happened7 months ago in Personal More Like This

"This is the first joint operation I've been a part of since I became a freelance bounty hunter. It's also the first time I've taken orders from a commanding officer since leaving the Federation army." -- Samus Aran
Whether Nintendo knew it or not, those two sentences completely invalidate the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Samus took orders from Admiral Dane, and she worked directly with the Federation army to secure the Pirate Homeworld and destroy Phaaze. If that doesn't qualify as a joint operation spearheaded by

So some of you might’ve seen that I attempted to do a “preview” of a comic on DA with a link to the full comic on my website. It was clearly a first attempt and the information I’ve gathered from it is still... inconclusive. According to statistics, the number of views didn’t really change at all compared to other posts where I didn’t have a link, but on the other hand I got more people communicating with me on my SYAC page for a change. There was also some confusion about if it was a preview or not, and that’s my bad for making such a terrible preview image. I’ll do better next time, I promise.
The whole point of this all is to try and generate more advert revenue on my various websites without bombarding y’all with pointless stuff or looking like i’m “whoring” my work. That’s one of the few things I kinda dislike about social network marketing... it can very easily turn

In the past I’ve drawn my own artwork to explain things, but that’s always resulted in people accusing me of not knowing what I’m talking about and demanding actual sources. I don’t like the idea of using actual sources because my criticism of these techniques could easily be misinterpreted as criticism against specific artists, which is entirely the wrong idea. A lot of the time, these are pervasive techniques used throughout the mainstream (American) comic industry and are not the fault of any one particular artist. It’s more of a condemnation of perpetuating “bad habits” than anything else.
As a result, this new batch of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips will feature actual artwork
Mako Mori vs Samus AranSo I was watching Pacific Rim for the 50th time the other day and it suddenly dawned on me. Mako Mori is Samus Aran.Mako Mori vs Samus Aran7 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you are all probably aware, I’ve taken a lot of heat in the past for supporting Metroid: Other M, a revolutionary Wii game that had a very unfortunate English translation. The main bulk of Other M’s story focuses on Samus Aran taking orders from her former boss Adam Malcovich as they explore a derelict space station. Her complicated relationship with Adam is a central aspect to Samus’s character, but for reasons that still baffle me, the gaming communities have pretty much ripped to shreds their relationship as being “weak” and “disempowering towards female characters.”
I’ve explained in the past why I disagree with that assessment, but let’s try something else here. Let’s compare Samus Aran to one of the recent pinnacles of strong female characters in FILM: Pacific Rim’s Mako Mori.
A New Monster Battle Game?Hey guys - what if somebody, somewhere, was talking about the next big monster fighting game? And we needed YOUR help?A New Monster Battle Game?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's the thing - with Kickstarter blowing up everywhere, and crowd-sourcing becoming viable, we could get Kaiju fans everywhere to pool their money, and get a game made. Not just any game, though! A game that exactly conforms to what WE, the fans who would pay for it, would want in a Kaiju battle game.
This isn't just idle speculation - Chris Mirjahangir, filmmaker from LA, got in touch with Simon Strange, the mastermind behind the last three Godzilla fighting games. After bringing me in, we all jumped onto Skype, and started banging around about what it would take to create a new, high-profile kaiju battle game. Turns out, "what it would take" is very dependent upon what we, the fans, would be willing to pay for.
So, in all seriousness, and FOR REALS I put out this question: What would you like to see in a new Kaiju battle game, and

No matter how “bad” you think something is, there is usually some positive aspect to it.

Jack the Giant Killer
It’s a B level story with an A level special effects team. That alone should be enough to pique people’s interests. While some characters act over the top and campy, the action is spot on and the effects are very high quality. I have a feeling that if this had come out 15 years ago, nobody would’ve had any issues with it at all and it would’ve just been deemed a late 90’s action adventure classic. It’s stupid, but it’s FUN stupid.

Tamisiocaris borealis (it's from Greenland) was allready described in 2010 but the fossil was taphonomic speaking suboptimal and it need new finds from expeditions in 2009 and 2011 bring more light into the anatomy of this bizzare animal. What these new fossils, especially a large appendage, shows is like the wet dream of any cambrium fanatic. These organs seems to be the feeding apparatus of an animal which prefer prey of the size of 0,49 mm.

Thoughts on the 'Hobbit Cartoon Study'Much like the pin-up series I showcased last week, this was a little thought experiment I did during the 6 months I was absent. I was having a very hard time motivating myself to draw anything and this was something I tried to do for myself as a therapeutic exercise.Thoughts on the 'Hobbit Cartoon Study'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
One of the things that was tricky to deal with was the awkward hands. The Rankin Bass cartoon has very stylized grizzly hands which are drawn entirely counterintuitive to how I would naturally draw them. I frequently looked for specific hand gestures from the cartoon and used those to help draw them here. They presented quite a challenge.
The other challenge was to try and illustrate backgrounds that the cartoon characters would be laid into, much like real cel animation. I wanted to mimic the cartoon as best I could and that meant rendering painted backgrounds. I had some new brushes I was trying out at the time and, to be honest, the backgrounds I came up with weren't quite the watercolor/inked hybrid of the 1977 movie.

It’s been reported that XboxOne sales have doubled since June 9th. You know what also happened June 9th? Kinect no longer being mandatory. I don’t often like to draw the “cause and effect” parallels, but this is too much of a coincidence to ignore. Also hilarious too, considering how adamant Microsoft was in keeping Kinect despite consumers telling them they don’t care anymore.
