"[Queen Divine Justice] was the latest iteration of my niece, Candace, with whom I fell in love when she was about eighteen months old. Candace has appeared as numerous characters, most especially Natasha Irons, John Henry Irons’ niece in Steel. The real Candace was about the single most annoying teenager I’d ever known, but she could get me to do virtually anything she wanted." - Christopher Priest

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

The Simpsons response to a documentary about inclusivity ("The Trouble with Apu" by Hari Kondabolu) has not gone down particularly well.  Kondanbolu noted, as an introduction to duiscussiong representation and visibility, that the most prominent Asian character on US TV for the past few decades has been Apu, who is voiced by a white guy . Hank Azaria, who has voiced Apu for 28 years now, has noted that he based Apu's accent off Peter Sellers playing an Indian (in brownface) in the 1960's comedy "The Millionairess", so it's essentially a white guy doing a parody of another white guy's existing parody of an Indian accent.

And in "Headlines I never thought I'd write"; Puffins beaks glow under blacklight... what a wasted opportunity for the Porgs!

Speaking of outlandish creatures, POTUS45 has been sabre rattling with Syria, and his personal lawyer's offices have been raided by the FBI. This latter is seen as a VERY unusual step to take and may have some very serious ramifications for both sides. Luckily, Tucker Carson of Fox News had his finger on the beating pulse of the nation.

I've recently come across a youtube performer named Whitney Avalon, whose Disney mashup work is very well done and very funny (Her Maleicent is amazing)

A man has been hospitalised after eating a chilli pepper but not just any chilli pepper, a Carolina Reaper chilli, which delivers up to 1.5 MILLLION Scoville Heat Units, compared to a jalapeneo pepper's maximum of about 8000 SHU! (That MUST count as some sort of chemical weapon, no?)

The 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' movie got a proper trailer

I got a namecheck in the latest "Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men", thanks to noticing a Margaret Rutherford cameo in an old Excalibur.... okay that's neither news, nor exactly off topic, but work with me here!

Northern Ireland is celebrating 20 years since the Northern Irish peace settlement known as "The Good Friday Agreement". Though, of course, Brexit is not exactly helping matters in that regard.

Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy released it's first trailer>. Aimed at a younger audience than it's predecessor, the hugely enjoyable 'Rescue Bots' series, the style is a little different, but we'll see how it goes.

An unusual, possibly troubling to read, but inspiring, I think, note to end on: A photographer in Belarus is setting up a project to help victims of domestic abuse feel more confident about themselves. It's kind of awesome.

I was initially planning on posting this to bring awareness to the Kickstarter for the trade edition except they've since reached their goal. Regardless, the first issue is being given away free online to entice backers so I'm posting it in its entirety for those who might be interested.

Warning for gore/violence.

Richard Rider and Laura Dunham have entered the "let her know I'm a superhero" part of their relationship.
What could possibly go wrong?

Trigger warning for rape getting mentioned and off-panel suicide.
