"The idea is to give Marvel an A-Grade villain who – a female villain – who can fight the Hulk to a standstill. Marvel has really fantastic villains, but if you think about it, there isn’t currently a major league, ass-kicking female villain in the Marvel Universe. Obviously there are super-powered female villains, but nobody who could take on Thor or the Hulk." -- James Robinson

ozaline: Ozma from Skottie Young and Eric Shanower's Ozma of Oz comic adaptation (Ozma)

Erin Ptah of But I'm a Cat Person. Did an adaptation of a scene where L Frank Baum addresses a rather large plot hole in the Oz books, and it only took him eight books to do it. I'll let Baum set the scene:


As they turned away Betsy said wonderingly:

"Do all the animals in Oz talk as we do?"

"Almost all," answered Dorothy. "There's a Yellow Hen here, and she can talk, and so can her chickens; and there's a Pink Kitten upstairs in my room who talks very nicely; but I've a little fuzzy black dog, named Toto, who has been with me in Oz a long time, and he's never said a single word but 'Bow-wow!'"

"Do you know why?" asked Ozma.

"Why, he's a Kansas dog; so I s'pose he's different from these fairy animals," replied Dorothy.

"Hank isn't a fairy animal, any more than Toto," said Ozma, "yet as soon as he came under the spell of our fairyland he found he could talk. It was the same way with Billina, the Yellow Hen whom you brought here at one time. The same spell has affected Toto, I assure you; but he's a wise little dog and while he knows everything that is said to him he prefers not to talk."

"Goodness me!" exclaimed Dorothy. "I never s'pected Toto was fooling me all this time." Then she drew a small silver whistle from her pocket and blew a shrill note upon it. A moment later there was a sound of scurrying footsteps, and a shaggy black dog came running up the path.

"I was a fat kid. I was a nerd. I read comics when comics were definitely not cool so I got bullied like nothing else. I remember when I was a kid in movies, bullies were the bad guys but at my school, the bullies were the cool kids and everybody was rooting for them. And they were rooting against me. And that's why I gravitated toward Batman. He was the guy that if the bullies hit you, he'd hit them back. He was the guy on the other side of that fist." - Tom King

"We’re finding that horror has a lot of different flavours, and in Cinema Purgatorio we’re hoping to extend and educate both our own and the readers’ palates. And you never know, the reader might discover that they’re looking at forgettable old films completely differently and becoming aware of some of the uncomfortable shadows in the background. That has certainly been our own experience thus far, and there are an awful lot of movies or movie devices that I personally am never going to see in the same light again." -- Alan Moore

"As far as putting the Tsum Tsums alongside the regular heroes, the Marvel Universe has successfully incorporated toy lines into its history before. Plus there’s already a talking duck. The Tsum Tsums should be able to fit right in alongside all that craziness."

This isn't the best scene between Matt Murdock and Karen Page, but it is an interesting one. Matt finds Karen after a long absence, which involved Typhoid Mary.
