How the crap can you make those kinds of panels? Does it work with circles/ellipses too?

Honestly I’m probably not using the panel tool as efficiently as possible, but I’m only using it as a rough framework to lay things out because I ultimately ink the panels by hand to make them look less mechanical. I don’t know how to do ellipse panels really because I don’t use them so I’ve never bothered trying to learn. anyway, this is roughly how I lay out Platinum Black pages;

Start with a new page with safe area cutoff

image

Drop in the thumbnail

image

select the “rectangular frame tool

image

Draw a frame in the safe area

image

Select Divide Frame Border

image

Roughly cut up the page along the panel lines

image

Hold “ctrl” and click on the panels to use the sliders and binding boxes to fiddle with their size and placement

image

Once I’ve gotten them how I want I hold right click on the layer the get the rasterize option

image

Then I can use the line tool and eraser to futz with panels that aren’t overlapping the way I want.

image

Then I ink the panels by hand to make them look a little less mechanical

Mutant 101 - Professor Xavier Should Put In A Call To Her Parents - 5 Year Old Mia Stares Down marvelentertainment's Cast Of Guardians Of The Galaxy As She Crushes Them In A Game Of GotG Trivia On jimmykimmellive [X

Vin Diesel in the background looking at her like “SHE’S PERFECT.  WANT ONE.”

I thought girls didn’t like Super Heroes.

You thought what? 

Also, bless five-year-old girls who can confidently pronounce the words ‘cybernetic enhancements’ because they’re so interested in superhero adventures that they saw no obstacle to learning anything at all to understand them better.

And can do it wearing a pink flower headband, if they feel like it.

GIRLS LIKE SUPERHEROES. GIRLS LIKE COMICS. GIRLS HAVE LIKED THESE THINGS FOR AS LONG AS THEY HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO LIKE. 

image

(behold, three girls and one boy avidly reading new comic books in New York City, 1947, photographed by Ruth Orkin)

What girls don’t like is when they’re patronised, and herded towards titles designed according to what grown men think girls are supposed to like, and ignored with regard to titles that those men assume are just for boys and men. What girls don’t like is not being allowed to choose for themselves what they like. 

This is not a new concept. This is noted in Chaucer. What every woman most desires is to choose her own way.

"On Demographics."

Following the news this week made me really, really angry and I don’t think some people realize just how many Americans are affected by aggressive and militarized law enforcement. We need to call for immediate police reform for the sake of the kids coming up right now.

This is amazing, Blue.

i think a lot about the time kevin smith had grant morrison on his podcast (the only part of kevin smith’s podcast network i have heard or will hear tbh) where the two of them were discussing batman as part of a podcast series kevin smith was doing on batman for who knows why, its batman. i’d do a podcast series on batman. but only dick grayson batman.

at one point they start discussing the final parts of the killing joke, specifically get on the subject of the final page.

idk that you’ve read the kiling joke (v famous and v integral to modern batman stories, written by alan moore and since its release has been treated as canon in the dc universe as its where barbara gordon loses use of her lower body and ultimately becomes oracle bc of it) or its final page but this is how it goes:

image

up until this podcast theres been a documented viewpoint that grant morrison has about it and i’m fuzzy on the actual history but i think this is the first time he’s said it in any kind of official manner

"Batman killed the Joker." 

so kevin smith’s kinda ribbing him saying “ah c’mcon. that’s crazy. what?”

but then grant morrison launches into this super thought out, incredibly passionate and, from the tone of his voice, extremely important to him as a batman fan and writer. he’s talking about how nobody understands this last page, how batman broke the joker’s neck and thats why the laughter stops. how the light disappears because the chance to cross the bridge between the two was gone and how, shit kid, its right in the fuckin title. its the killing joke. kevin smith eventually starts going “oh SHIT, you’re right fuck yeah” and totally comes around on it

i fuckin love it dude let me drop all like 30% of analytic pretense that this shit has, i love grant morrison’s explanation of the killing joke’s final page. like its so clear how much he loves batman and writing and that he’s writing baman at the time. thats the shit. thats the real shit.

the few times i’m able to like interact with a creator outside of their work in another medium likes this is always great, it gives a lot of insight and i think its super rare to see from grant morrison

you know?

MARVEL ANNOUNCES NEW PRINTING OF ‘HOWARD THE DUCK’ OMNIBUS, SO LET’S REVISIT STEVE GERBER’S BATTLE FOR THE CHARACTER
By Matt D. Wilson
This week, Marvel Comics announced that it’s planning to publish a new printing of the Howard the Duck Omnibus in October, collecting the character’s first appearance, all 33 issues of the original Howard the Duck series, and several other appearances in Marvel Team-Up, Marvel Treasury Edition, and Man-Thing.
It’s the first time the omnibus has seen print since 2008, and it’s a great resource for anyone looking to familiarize themselves with Howard — a great, satirical character often held in low regard because of the 1986 movie. It’s also an opportunity to get to know the work of Steve Gerber, the writer who co-created the character with artist Val Mayerik. Gerber died in February 2008, six months before the original release of the omnibus, and did not hold very positive feelings towards Marvel for decades after his Howard the Duck comics were first published.
Gerber returned to Marvel in 2002 for a Howard the Duck MAX series, which lasted six issues. Prior to that, in 1980, he famously sued Marvel for ownership of the character after being fired from both the Howard the Duck comic book and daily strip. Gerber was particularly angry that Marvel planned to use the character in TV and movie projects. That suit ended in 1982 with a confidential agreement and Gerber’s concession, after two years of fighting, that Howard was Marvel’s property.

Quick Guide to Marvel’s Female Solo Titles and 15 Female Lead Characters RIGHT NOW in August 2014

loudlysilent:

image

New or returning to Marvel comics, or have a friend who is? Here’s the Cliffs Notes on Marvel’s female-led solo titles and 15 lead female characters RIGHT NOW in August 2014:

1. Captain Marvel
WHO SHE IS: Carol Danvers is an Avenger, pilot, and all-around butt-kicking leader who can fly, has superhuman strength, and shoots energy blasts. She formerly used the alias Ms. Marvel. Carol has recently left Earth to be an “Avenger in space” traveling with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWCaptain Marvel, written perfectly by the peerless Kelly Sue DeConnick, has one of the biggest and best fan followings in comics: the #CarolCorps! Carol defends displaced, marginalized people groups, and forms new friendships with other adventurers. Also check out Guardians of the Galaxy.

2. Ms. Marvel
WHO SHE IS: Kamala Khan is a New Jersey teen who is Pakistani American, Muslim, a huge Avengers fan, and who suddenly became a super-strong shapeshifter when her powers were activated, revealing that she is an Inhuman (a race in the Marvel Universe with powers).

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWMs. Marvel, by writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona (Runaways). It’s one of the most entertaining Marvel comics and is easily accessible for new Marvel readers, requiring zero familiarity with any other comics.

3. Black Widow
WHO SHE IS: Natasha Romanov is an Avenger, ex-KGB spy, S.H.I.E.L.D. (spy organization on the side of the good guys… usually) agent, and a deadly assassin.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWBlack Widow by writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Phil Noto is riveting and gorgeously illustrated. A perfect comics entry point if you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you want more of her interacting with Hawkeye, Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), and S.H.I.E.L.D., read Secret Avengers.

4. She-Hulk
WHO SHE IS: Jennifer Walters is a smart, cosmopolitan lawyer who gained super-strength after a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, aka Hulk.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWShe-Hulk, written by real-life lawyer Charles Soule, gives Jen quirky adventures with an assortment of characters. She’s also in Mighty Avengers.

5. Storm
WHO SHE IS: Ororo Munroe is a mutant with the power to control weather. She leads the majority of X-Men as one of their main leaders. She’s been worshipped as a goddess, is the former queen of a nation, and is headmistress of the Jean Grey School.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWStorm, her solo title by writer Greg Pak and artist Victor Ibanez, just started on July 23, so now is the time to start reading it. Also, she is a major character in X-MenAmazing X-Men, and Wolverine and the X-Men.

6. Elektra
WHO SHE IS: Known as “the world’s deadliest assassin,” Elektra is one of the most skilled martial artists in the Marvel Universe. Now with her solo title, she is finally choosing her own stories separate from her long history of working for an organization (The Hand (a ninja clan), S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra) or being the supporting cast in someone else’s story (Daredevil).

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWElektra by writer Haden Blackman and artist Mike Del Mundo has some of the best art you’ll see in comics, period. She’s also in Thunderbolts with other grittier characters like Punisher and Red Hulk.

7. Angela
WHO SHE IS: Originally a character in the Spawn comics, Angela is now a fixture in the Marvel Universe and has recently traveled with the Guardians of the Galaxy. She is a fierce warrior with a severe, no-nonsense personality and unrivaled fighting skills. She was raised among angels and was thought to be an angel, but recently in July 2014, it’s been revealed that Angela is Thor Odinson’s sister and is Asgardian.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWThor & Loki: The Tenth Realm by Jason Aaron and Al Ewing is a miniseries concurrent with Marvel’s larger Original Sin event, but you don’t have to read any of Original Sin to understand The Tenth Realm. The miniseries reveals Angela’s secret history and connection to Asgard. In November 2014, Angela will get her own solo title: Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, by writers Kieron Gillen and Marguerite Bennett and artists Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans.

8. Gamora
WHO SHE IS: Known as “The Most Dangerous Woman in the Universe,” Gamora is the adopted daughter of Thanos (a supervillain and classic Avengers foe). She is the last of her species and was raised by Thanos to be an assassin. No longer loyal to Thanos, she joined the Guardians of the Galaxy.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWGuardians of the Galaxy.

9. Hawkeye (not that Hawkeye)
WHO SHE IS: Kate Bishop is a Young Avenger and the Young Avengers’ frequent field leader, the best archer on the planet (take that, Clint), the daughter of a rich, mostly absent father, and my favorite person in comics. She’s 18 or so, doesn’t care for her privileged upbringing, has hung out a lot with Clint Barton and saved his ass repeatedly, and recently left NYC for Los Angeles with Clint’s dog, Lucky.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWHawkeye, by writer Matt Fraction and artists David Aja and Annie Wu. Can we say enough good things about Annie Wu’s illustrations of Kate? No, we can’t.

10. Medusa
WHO SHE IS: Queen of the Inhumans, a race that previously resided in a city called Attilan, but who are now dispersed after Attilan was destroyed, and many humans around the world were activated in their powers and revealed to be Inhumans. Her husband, Black Bolt, has mysteriously disappeared, leaving her to deal with the aftermath of this major change in the Inhumans’ status quo. She has psychokinetic ability to animate her hair.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWInhuman, by writer Charles Soule and artist Joe Madureira. Later this fall and going into 2015, she’ll play a major role in Marvel’s Avengers NOW! initiative.

11. Nico Minoru
WHO SHE IS: Powerful spell-casting teenage witch and wielder of the Staff of One, former Runaways leader, daughter of secretly evil parents (now deceased). Ended 2013 by surviving Avengers Arena.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWAvengers Undercover, by writer Dennis Hopeless. Undercover follows the survivors of Avengers Arena. It’s one of Marvel’s few books featuring a teen cast. The survivors are now living in Bagalia, a sovereign state completely inhabited by villains. Nico and her friends masquerade as bad guys while weighing their post-traumatic future.

12. Spectrum
WHO SHE IS: Monica Rambeau is a long-time Avenger and former Avengers team leader. She can transform into pure electromagnetic energy, fly, shoot energy blasts, and move at super-speed. She previously used the aliases Pulsar and Captain Marvel.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWMighty Avengers, by writer Al Ewing and artist Greg Land. Along with Luke Cage, Falcon, She-Hulk, and other Avengers from New York City, she fights villains in a title filled with action scenes and great team dynamics.

13. (Young) Jean Grey
WHO SHE IS: One of the Original Five X-Men who has been brought from her original 1960’s-ish timeline into the Marvel present. Thus, she’s still a teen, still discovering her telepathic and telekinetic powers, and recently discovered that her abilities are more powerful and unpredictable than her adult (deceased) self’s. Jean is also a wide-eyed ingenue whom the boys fight over, of course.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWAll-New X-Men by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Stuart Immonen. All of ANXM’s plotlines have revolved around Jean, who attracted the attention of both the alien Shi’ar and the Future Brotherhood, an evil band of mutants who time-traveled from the future to attack her.

14. Kitty Pryde
WHO SHE IS: Long-time X-Men member, a favorite student of Professor Charles Xavier, and more recently a professor at the Jean Grey School whom students affectionately called “Professor K.” Loyal to the teenage Original Five, she left with them for Cyclops’ rival school and home. Has the ability to phase through solid objects.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWAll-New X-Men has featured her prominently, but her disagreements with Cyclops prompt her to show up more in Legendary Star-Lord going on adventures with Peter Quill.

15. Invisible Woman
WHO SHE IS: Sue Storm is the matriarch of Marvel’s “First Family,” the Fantastic Four. She’s a strong, resolute leader and doesn’t let anyone, least of all her impassive husband, Reed Richards, sway her decisions. She has powers of invisibility and force fields.

WHERE TO FIND HER RIGHT NOWFantastic Four, by writer James Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk.
