STAFF PICKS :: SOVEREIGN #2 :: APRIL 23, 2014

outofsteparts:

Seth Peagler from Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC had some nice things to say about Sovereign #2 (out today). Thanks, Seth!

SETH’S PICK :: SOVEREIGN #2: Many readers have only recently realized that Image Comics is putting out some of the highest quality comics on the stands. But for every runaway hit that sells out immediately (think Black Science), there are others with a slower burning fuse of public awareness. Sovereign may fall into that latter category, but I’m here to let you know that it’s a new series well worth your time and money. In the first issue, creators Chris Roberson and Paul Maybury establish a range of themes and possibilities. There are obvious fantasy elements present, namely in the book’s inclusion of a healthy amount of magic and the undead, but those are all balanced with strong characters amid societies rife with civil unrest. I’ve seen the book regaled as a story existing in the vein of Game of Thrones, and there may well be some truth to that. This is, however, a story that was born for the comics medium, and Maybury’s always impressive cartooning eloquently reminds us of that. Sovereign is a comic with endless potential, and may just be yet another long running and entertaining series for Image.

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

In case you missed it yesterday, I wrote about chauvinism on a T-shirt and why that’s a bad thing.

I want to give a giant THANKS to the CBR team for their diligent moderation of the comments. It’s full on refreshing.

I always find it so funny when people bitch about ‘forced diversity’.

because, like, once you work retail you start to see just how different everybody is.

for example, the other day I greeted a woman I was ringing up and started asking her the usual questions we’re supposed to…
