“Entonces entraron al cuarto de José Arcadio Buendía, lo sacudieron con todas sus fuerzas, le gritaron al oído, le pusieron un espejo frente a las fosas nasales, pero no pudieron despertarlo. Poco después, cuando el carpintero le tomaba las medidas para el ataúd, vieron a través de la ventana que estaba cayendo una llovizna de minúsculas flores amarillas. Cayeron toda la noche sobre el pueblo en una tormenta silenciosa, y cubrieron los techos y atascaron las puertas, y sofocaron a los animales que durmieron a la intemperie. Tantas flores cayeron del cielo, que las calles amanecieron tapizadas de una colcha compacta, y tuvieron que despejarlas con palas y rastrillos para que pudiera pasar el entierro.”

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”

That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?

Honest question, dudes.

That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.

So what do we do about it?

This.

Classic back issues: “Captain Captain” #1, Panic Comics Group, 1973—“Against the Peruvian ¡Monster!”

This is actually a film still from Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “The Holy Mountain,” from a sequence about a businesswoman whose products indoctrinate children against future enemies in future wars. The art and lettering are a barely retouched version of Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” #1.

The band Man Man used the phrase “Against the Peruvian Monster” as the title of a track 1 so the album opens with the singer yelling “Against! The! Peruvian MONSTER!”

I really like the movie and Man Man and the song AND Marvel Comics. The first time I saw “The Holy Mountain” the comic book art and title blew my mind, then it tilted down to reveal the story title and it blew my mind again.

gimpnelly:

Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…
