(Triggers: multiple mentions of suicide, with a character actually being encouraged to kill himself and wanting to die. He doesn't, for what that's worth. Also trigger warnings for imprisonment involving prolonged sensory deprivation and starvation--while those things aren't among the trigger tags, I can certainly imagine how they could be triggers for anybody having gone through certain ordeals. Finally, there is some dialogue here which could potentially bring back memories of child abuse.)

One page from Captain America #367, two pages from a five page backup story in Captain America #369 and seven pages from Captain America #370.

Scans have already been posted of Magneto vs. the Red Skull (or to be more accurate, Magneto hunting the Skull while having to deal with every obstacle and distraction the latter can throw at him). The links to those images seem to be broken, and I thought of posting new images, but decided to play it safe and wait until I got the okay from a mod here. For now, I will just post what happened afterwards.

To briefly recap: after meeting the Red Skull, Magneto wants to know if he's the same Skull who was with the Nazis in World War Two, which the Skull admits. Even though the Skull didn't actually run the death camps, he still willingly served Hitler and Magneto wants to know what he has to say for himself. The Skull stalls by giving him a "We're not really so different" speech, since both of them want to see their respective "master race" inherit the Earth, before trying to kill him. Long story short, it doesn't work, the Skull tries to get away but fails, and the issue ends with this page:

In the new season of Legend of Korra (which is VASTLY improved over the previous two, by the by), they're exploring the family of Toph Bei Fong, and as such, I thought that I'd post some stuff from the recent Rift mini-series from the interquel comics from between Airbender and Korra.

More horrifying than Mignola! More messed up than Junji Ito! More Perverse than a Mark Millar deconstructionist superhero comic! More lacking in its basic understanding of medical law than that one Veronica Mars episode!
One of the two worst comics I've ever read )

I've long been a fan of Dean Trippe, diehard comic book fan, excellent artist in his own right, creator of Butterfly (one of the most delightful and charming webcomics I've ever read) and one of the lights behind the ever-enjoyable "Project Rooftop" superhero redesign competitions.

He is also one of the most articulate and thorougly decent chaps you could hope to communicate with, and a loving and devoted father (This was Dean and his son three years ago, and they're still going trick or treating as the Dynamic Duo again this year.), and when you realise what he went through to become such a person, it's even more impressive.

Trigger warning as discussions of child abuse and suicide under the cut

One of the best things about the internet is the sheer variety of media you find, more or less by chance. From the whimsical and amusing, to those which are so scorchingly painful you can practically FEEL the cost of writing it to the author as you read it.

This is very much the latter.

"Lighter than my Shadow" is a forthcoming autobiographical graphic novel about growing up with anorexia and coming to terms with it in adulthood by a British creator; Katie Green.

I'll say up front there are trigger warning  for issues here involving an eating disorder as well as a reference to sexual abuse in the material linked to, so proceed any further bearing that in mind.

This seems singularly apt. Though not a happy story, and indeed horrifying in more ways than I can articulate, it's a story about courage, and determination in the face of unimaginable opposition.

The piece is called Malala Yousafzai: I have the right. (Those of you familiar with the name will know that this is a story involving violence against a young woman, and bravery beyond measure, for those of you who aren't yet familiar with it, read on...)

Because this is a real person, I'm being cautious with the trigger warnings, and include them for bullying, child abuse, misogyny/sexism and violence towards women.

Not just BASED on a true story, but an ACTUAL true story )

Started watching the Wire lately, and it's put me in the mood for some of Ed Brubaker's Catwoman run, which I'm going to share as it's a far better series than most things published now or since.
