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.

Netflix buys Scots comic book firm Millarworld – BBC News

He runs the company with his wife Lucy Millar. It is the first ever company acquisition in Netflix’s history. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Mr Millar said: “I’m so in love with what Netflix is doing and excited by their plans. “Netflix is the future and Millarworld couldn’t have a better home.” ‘Next generation’ Netflix said the acquisition was a natural progression in the company’s effort to work directly with prolific and skilled creators and to acquire intellectual property and ownership of stories. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said Mr Millar was “as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee” – the co-creator of Spider-Man and other Marvel characters. He said: “Mark has created a next-generation comics universe, full of indelible characters living in situations people around the world can identify easily with. To say this is the best thing that ever happened in our professional lives would be an understatement Mark Millar “We look forward to creating new Netflix Originals from several existing franchises as well as new super-hero, anti-hero, fantasy, sci-fi and horror stories Mark and his team will continue to create and publish.” Netflix and Mr Millar will bring

Deadpool isn’t looking too lucky in the latest photo from his sequel

Domino, in the comics. Image: Marvel Comics Domino is slaying in the latest photo from Deadpool 2. Literally. Ryan Reynolds has just shared our first look at Zazie Beetz (FX’s Atlanta) in character, and she’s working the hell out of a “red carpet” that happens to be Deadpool himself.

In the books, she’s a (literally) white person with a black spot over her eye; in the film, she’s a black person with a white spot over her eye. In both versions, she and Deadpool tend to tangle.

Dark knight rising: why Ben Affleck’s Batman is the key to DC’s movie future

Last years Batman v Superman almost trashed the Batmobile, but DC needs to harness the Batflecks potential to connect its slate of Extended Universe films If the Marvel Cinematic Universe really does come to a close following the events of 2019s as-yet-untitled Avengers: Infinity War sequel, The Incredible Hulk? it might just be possible for fans to rewatch more than 20 movies, stretching back to 2008s Thor: Ragnarok and beyond, and they will all be wearing capes cut from the same vivid cloth. Sadly for Warners rival DC Extended Universe, it has already lost any chance of hitting such heights of consistency. Rather than setting the tone for future episodes, last years Suicide Squad, a movie with an offbeat premise that the studio clearly never had enough time to make sense of, and the rush of sweet relief that was Patty Jenkins Warner might cash in its chips by removing Ben Affleck as the new Batman, as if getting rid of the DCEUs most famous face would instantly solve all its problems. That rather seems like throwing the baby out with the bathwater, if a hulking 6ft 4in Hollywood behemoth can ever be described in such terms. It also rather

No, ‘passed gas’ didn’t cause flight evacuation

In today’s “Not The Onion” news, an American Airlines flight supposedly had to evacuate all its passengers after a person “passed gas,” causing violent episodes of nausea and headaches. Except that this isn’t true. SEE ALSO: Sorry everyone, but that shocking Amelia Earhart photo has been debunked twice The story, which originally appeared on local WNCN-TV, quotes an unidentified spokesperson with Raleigh-Durham International Airport as saying that all passengers were taken off the plane after it landed at around 4 p.m. The incident allegedly started when passengers on the flight “became ill with nausea and headaches” spurred by a foul-smelling odor in the cabin. However, American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein categorically denied this report. Feinstein told Mashable that “the flight was not evacuated, and the story is not true”. He said the plane had a odor issue, but that was due to a mechanical fault, not “passed gas.” We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2:19 p.m. ET, and arrived the gate at 2:21 p.m. ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue and odor in the cabin. But it is not due to ‘passed gas’ as mentioned,Feinstein said.

Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe villains, from Abomination to Zemo

Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the Vulture, in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Image: Columbia Pictures Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers for all Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, up to and including Spider-Man: Homecoming. A good bad man is hard to find at least within the confines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the franchise has given us some truly memorable superheroes, it’s been significantly less successful at crafting compelling supervillains. Sure, we all love Loki. But do you even remember Yellowjacket? Or Ronan? How about Malekith? Who? Yeah, exactly. SEE ALSO: ‘Homecoming’ is the best ‘Spider-Man’ movie ever made Which is yet another reason Spider-Man: Homecoming feels like such an invigorating change of pace. In the Vulture, the MCU has delivered its best big bad in years and he’s all the more riveting because he’s not your typical scenery-chewing megalomaniac. (It helps, of course, that he’s played by Michael Keaton, who commands the screen and makes it look effortless.) Instead, the Vulture is cut from the same cloth as his webslinging nemesis. Like Spidey, he’s a basically normal dude grappling with the fact that he lives in a superpowered world. Unlike Peter Parker, though, Adrian Toomes isn’t inspired by example to

How Fast is the Flash? Here’s the Comic Book Hero’s Top Speed

Theres no easy answer to any of these. There have been enough contradictions, crossovers, and comic book catastrophes to give a wide variety of characters a fighting chance in all of these discussions. As youll soon see, if you try to narrow the scope, there are still a ton of different factors to consider. But with that in mind, heres an in-depth look at how fast the Flash really is, and how he stacks up against other comic book speedsters. Who is the Flash? oneThe first Flash debuted in 1940. Jay Garrick was a college student studying chemistry and physics in Keystone City when an experiment went wrong. While unconscious, Garrick got mixed up with some chemicalsagain, this is 1940and went into a coma. When he woke up, he had super speed. Barry Allen is the most widely known Flash of all. He debuted in 1956 and is the main character used in most on-screen depictions of the character. Justice League/Justice League Unlimited? Barry. The CW? Barry. The DC Extended Universe? Barry. If youre watching the Scarlet Speedster on TV somewhere, its safe to assume its Barry. If youre under the age of 40, chances are Wally West is your

7 things you didnt know about Thor’s hammer, Mjlnir

Wonder WomanFor decades, Thor has become a popular mainstay of Marvel comics. He was a founding member of the Avengers, and starred in multiple comics titles before getting his own long-running series. His hammer, like any reliable friend, has been with him ever since. Mjlnir has proven to be an essential part of who Thor is over the decades in comics, cartoons, and live-action interpretations. 7 fascinating facts about Thors hammer, Mjlnir 1) Mjlnir wasnt created in a regular forge Thor Theres actually a lot more to the story. The hammer was forged by dwarven blacksmiths named Eitri, Brok, and Buri. In the comics, Odin commanded the blacksmiths to construct a deadly and powerful weapon for Asgard. To do this, the blacksmiths summoned a magical forge located in the heart of a star. There, they painstakingly forged Mjlnir out of Asgardian metal. This metal is so indestructible, it would give Wolverines adamantium claws a run for their money. 2) Mjlnirs creation came with some serious casualties took out the dinosaursFortunately for Marvels heroes, Earth survived the blast. With Jeff Goldblums upcoming appearance in , it sounds like life found a way after all. 3) DC Comics introduced Mjlnir before Marvel

Against women-only screenings of ‘Wonder Woman’? Its creator would like a word.

If they had cinemas, they'd certainly have women-only screenings. Care to argue with them? Image: warner bros. As the millions of Americans who gave it a record-breaking $100 million weekend now know, Wonder Woman spends most of its opening hour on Themyscira, the fictional island of the Amazons. Or, as it used to be called in the comics, Paradise Island. There’s a reason why William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman’s creator, gave his heroine the Paradise Island background when he delivered her to the world in 1941. This wasn’t just another Krypton, a way to introduce a superhero with a cool otherworldly origin. SEE ALSO: ‘Wonder Woman’ $100 million box office is the best opening for a female director No, Marston’s reasoning can be summed up by two words that are often mocked in modern political discourse: safe space. His Amazons were women who’d fled slavery in Ancient Greece and found eternal life beyond the terrors of “man’s world.” Their island was an allegory for what real-world women needed Virginia Woolf’s all-important room of one’s own, writ large. Marston, a man ahead of his time in his feminist beliefs, was also a fan of feminist utopias. As Jill Lepore has noted
