He grew up in Las Vegas so it was personal for him, and after expressing his condolences and gratitude toward first responders, he soon turned his attention to the 56 senators who refused to vote for closing loopholes on background checks after the Orlando shooting.

I want this to be a comedy show. I hate talking about stuff like this. I just want to laugh about things every night, but it seems to be becoming increasingly difficult lately.

Fans petition Warner Bros. to make Wonder Woman bisexual

Wonder Woman is bisexual in the comics, but the 2016 movie avoids making any specific statement about her sexuality. There’s a subtle implication that the Amazons of Themiscyra have plenty of sex without men (obviously!), but you can hardly characterize that as queer representation. A new Change.org petition aims to change that. Started by NYU’s GLAAD representative Gianna Collier-Pitts, it asks Warner Bros. to make Wonder Woman canonically bisexual in the next movie. The petition points out that bisexual people are underrepresented in popular culture, and Wonder Woman would be an ideal choice to break new ground in Hollywood. “The majority of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual or as having attraction to more than one gender, and yet it is the least understood of any identity. We are oversexualized and underrepresented. We are called greedy, dishonest, and confused. We are the least likely to come out and the most likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, on top of experiencing higher rates of sexual/intimate partner violence. We are made to feel invisible and in doing so we begin to see ourselves as invisible. Making Wonder Woman canonically bisexual on the big screen would make her the first openly LGBTQ superhero of any

The Hand storyline developed in Daredevil and Iron Fist comes to fruition, and even the literal plot hole of Daredevil Season 2 gets filled up. So why does it all feel so perfunctory? The Defenders is fine. Just fine. It is really cool seeing the whole gang together, though. Image: Netflix To be clear, The Defenders isn’t awful. It’s fine. Just fine! It does what it’s supposed to, which is bring all four heroes together, and those interactions make up the best parts of the show. It’s genuinely thrilling to see Matt introduce himself as Jessica’s lawyer, or Luke and Danny go mano-a-mano in an alleyway.

Image copyright Tanya Roberts Image caption Art from Roberts’ graphic novel Abeyance “I think the differences in attracting a male/female readership is subtlety small. Because I go to conventions and sell my material to people I get feedback and notice who is buying my artwork. “Females seem to appreciate character relationships and that emotional connection between them a bit more. I know I do, as a female reader, get inspired when there’s great characters in the story with interesting relationships to others.” Roberts believes there to be a healthy female audience for comics. She says: “Girls don’t only seem to cosplay as their favourite characters they also buy comics too. “I always get excited talking to people who are inspired by comics and even more so to learn that they have taken their passion even further, that it in turn has inspired them to create something, like fan art, fiction or even their own original stuff. “To which I say to them: see you next

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming

A lecture explaining why using our imaginations, and providing for others to use theirs, is an obligation for all citizens Its important for people to tell you what side they are on and why, and whether they might be biased. A declaration of members interests, of a sort. So, I am going to be talking to you about reading. Im going to tell you that libraries are important. Im going to suggest that reading fiction, that reading for pleasure, is one of the most important things one can do. Im going to make an impassioned plea for people to understand what libraries and librarians are, and to preserve both of these things. And I am biased, obviously and enormously: Im an author, often an author of fiction. I write for children and for adults. For about 30 years I have been earning my living through my words, mostly by making things up and writing them down. It is obviously in my interest for people to read, for them to read fiction, for libraries and librarians to exist and help foster a love of reading and places in which reading can occur. So Im biased as a writer. But I am

15 hilarious parenting comics that are almost too real.

Brian Gordon is a cartoonist. He’s also a dad, which means he’s got plenty of inspiration for the parenting comics he creates for his website, Fowl Language (only a few of which actually feature any profanity). He covers many topics, but it’s his hilarious parenting comics that are resonating with moms and dads everywhere. “My comics are largely autobiographical,” Gordon told me. “I’ve got two kids who are four and seven, and often, what I’m writing happened as recently as that very same day.” Gordon shared 15 of his oh-so-real comics with us. They’re all funny ’cause they’re true. Let’s get started with his favorite, called ” Welcome to Parenting,” which Gordon says sums up his comics pretty well. “Parenting can be such tedious drudgery,” he told me, “but if it wasn’t also so incredibly rewarding there wouldn’t be nearly so many people on the planet.” Truth. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. 1. All comics are shared here with Gordon’s express permission. These comics are all posted on his website in addition to his Facebook page. You can also find a “bonus” comic that goes with each one by clicking the “bonus” link. Original. Bonus.
