The latter made stops along the way.

The former knew why he was making them.

The Black Hood made it to the second stop too late.

All he could do was take in the aftermath. )

The cat is asleep on the bed. He doesn't know that it's Tuesday, nor does he especially care. But we do! What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.

Today's question: Do you maintain multiple posting names (i.e. pseudonyms or "pseuds") for your work, or do you lump all your works together under one name?

I’m not oblivious to the fact that folks can feel like they suffer from event fatigue or what have you. All I can say to that is, I personally believe that events are like any other kind of story. The delivery method doesn’t matter. Whether it’s its own title, a weekly book, an anthology, or a team-up, I don’t believe there is a type of book that doesn’t work. All that matters at the end of the day is whether or not your story is good. -- Nick Spencer

Book Post: Ruby by Cynthia Bond

Ruby, the title character of the book, is a black woman who fled to New York City when she was young but ultimately comes home to a black township in East Texas. Adjusting to life in the South after the freedoms of the North is harder than Ruby realizes it will be, and the pressure of her barely suppressed childhood traumas quickly results in severe mental illness (or, to be more accurate, something modern readers will quickly recognize as mental illness, while the townsfolk mostly blame her for "not keeping herself under control"). Ruby herself believes that she is haunted. As a child, she witnessed terrible things happening to other children, and now the souls of those children flock to her for protection. Readers get the choice of how to interpret these "haints" -- as a symbolic representation of being trapped in a moment of trauma, or as literal ghosts that cling to Ruby's skirts. The situation comes to a head when Ephram, who loved her from afar as a child, sets himself as Ruby's protector amid fierce opposition from his ultra-religious sister.

This book contains serious triggers for rape and child abuse, both of which are referenced below the cut.

I need to discuss this book with somebody (spoilers) )

“I've got a new Superman project that’s getting started, telling his origins. It’s like my book, Batman: Year One, it’s going to be Superman: Year One. It’s going to be telling origins from when Pa Kent discovers him in the cornfield. And the little boy grows to youth and then to manhood….I’ve never really had my meaningful crack at Superman. In the cast of DC Comics, which has far and away the strongest and richest mythology, there are those three pillars they have of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.”

And a quote from earlier: "I've been particularly brutal to Superman, but that's not because I don't like the character; it's because the point-of-view has always been Batman's. If I did a story where Superman was the lead character, Batman would be the antagonist. I adore Superman, it's just that Batman does not, so when I'm writing Batman, I do not. It's very much a writer's job to take on a character's point of view."

Mod Post: Off-Topic Tuesday

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.

SDCC came and went with a slew of movie news from all directions and John Barrowman wearing a glittery TARDIS tutu, I'm sure other, very relevant and important, things happened too, but once you've seen John Barrowman in a glittery TARDIS tutu, all else tends to drift into the background. EDIT - Not having actually watched the video, only seen the photos, I had not realised how inappropriate some of his comments were. Be aware there are references to transgender issues which are not really appropriate (A cis gay guy dressing as an alien spaceship which has a possibly-akin-to-female nature was probably never going to be a 100% successful idea).

In a move which is disturbing on a number of levels, President Trump used an address to the Boy Scouts of America (which he'd promised would not be political) to give a 40 minute ramble about how important loyalty to the President was... before asking them to boo the previous President. Words fail which, given some of the words I know, is probably best for everyone).

Pokemon Go's first live event, being held in Chicago, was something of a disaster, which is a genuine shame.

Greenland's ice sheet seems to be melting faster than anticipated.

The BBC published the pay rates of it's top stars, and the immediately obvious gender pay gap has led to some less than comfortable, but long overdue, discussions. Jodie Whittaker is confirmed as receiving the same pay for playing the Doctor as Peter Capaldi did.

The trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Special which will see Capaldi regenerate into Whittaker has been released and David Bradley's impersonation of William Hartnell's first Doctor is approaching the scarily good. It also confirmed that Pearl Mackie will return as Bill for the special, but she has revealed that she will not be joining the new team for the following season.

Descendants 2, Disney's franchise combining "Once Upon a Time..." with "High School Musical" came out, and though Evie and Mal (daughters of the Wicked Queen from Snow White and Malificent, respectively) DO sing a Wicked-esque number which has more slashy subtext than a Chris Claremont comic, a scene of Harry Hook (the eyeliner-wearing (and for some reason Scottish) son of Captain Hook) kissing Gil (a dim, but-good natured, son of Gaston) was filmed, but cut from the movie, but is apparently still in the Junior Novelisation... which is certainly progress of a sort. (To be fair, the scenes of Harry "toying" with a captive handsome Prince don't leave much to the imagination either)

'I did not want to fall into the trap into which so many have stumbled when trying to recapture the "feel" of those stories. In other words, I did not want "goofy" to become "stupid". The guys who wrote those Silver Age stories took them seriously, and that was how I approached my version. The intent was not to say "Hey! Look how silly this stuff was!"' - John Byrne

Snippets of each Fyrebird's reaction when they return to their original time. Seriously, none of this will make any sense without the context of the rest of the series.
