Re: Boycott Thor!

My half-Filipino friend cherishes a dream of someday getting to play an incarnation of Doctor Who. It'd be pretty awesome. I mean, seriously, other than the skin tone I could pull it off! You could just say he got tanned or something fighting crime in Barbados. I even went as Leonidas from 300 to a...

I hope that this doesn't spiral out of control as a big issue because otherwise it puts a downer on us non-white people who grew up hoping they could someday play Batman or James Bond on screen. Fuck your predetermined images of both of them, Batman needs to be played by an Indian guy just once, I c...

Re: A surprise for Randall Munroe (Randall Munroes: Look awa

Having thought about this, many short comics spliced together by Sungura would probably work better. Designing it sequentially would be difficult to fit together properly, the story might not work out perfectly/make any sense whatsoever and shorter comics would allow for more meaningful messages.
