Getting a Grip on Ebola

robertreich:

We have to get a grip. Ebola is not a crisis in the United States. One person has died and two people are infected with his body fluids.

The real crisis is the hysteria over Ebola that’s being fed by media outlets seeking sensationalism and politicians posturing for the midterm elections.

That…

Shout it.

X-Men #139 cover by John Byrne & Terry Austin. 1980.

The first color image is the published cover. Below it is a fan colored version using John’s coloring notes as seen on the original page and posted above for ease of reading.

I’m not aware if Glynis Wein did the colors or not on the published cover and why they are different from John’s notes. Anyone?

I can only speculate. I think that the editors thought that people were still getting used to Wolverine’s “new look”. As evidence I give you the Marvel box on the upper left of the cover. Wolverine in yellow. I also think (I can’t remember) that John wanted to change the X-Men generic uniform to black and white. I think that in any argument about coloring, John wins, as these changes are minute, but can add much to the plotting.

Disneyland Grad Nite, 1963. One of the bands, the Firehouse Five + 2, was legendary animator Ward Kimball’s band! Via Vintage Disneyland Tickets.

I wish our school had done a grad night at The Park. We were too far away, I fear.

I had chill bumps and a few tears at the end of Flatline. He’s back. Stop reading now if you don’t get how a fictional creation can feel real sometimes.

This is a ‘person’ I’ve loved since before I was a teenager, before I was a man, before I even knew what kind of man I wanted to be. And it’s probably not exaggeration to say that the Doctor (Troughton/Pertwee/Baker/Davison) helped me make decisions about character that guide me to this day. So when I felt that the show had lost that essential core early in the season, I was really upset. This episode, and Capaldi’s moment above, just made me very happy.

I haven’t seen the new season yet and I’m not as invested in The Doctor as some. I’ll get around to it eventually. Speaking for myself, I never liked the few episodes after any regeneration. To steal a word from Admiral Al Calavicci, I don’t appreciate it when The Doctor’s brain has been “swiss cheesed.” This may, again, be a case of The Doctor filling in the gaps.

"Space:  1999"

Charlton Comics -  November 1975  -  November 1976  (7 issues)

My first exposure to John Byrne was issue six. An issue entirely devoted to Commander Koenig trying to rescue himself from a damaged Eagle transporter. Loved it. Much better than the actual series.

It’s really curious to see how common right wing status quo defenders use of the language of the dis-empowered has become. Whether we’re talking about the trials of “reverse racism” or “misandry” or other perceived slights against the dominant culture the percesutory complexes that come from the…
