Chris Roberson makes up stories.

Time to get in the family Truckster

Best moment in the history of television, arguably.

comicbookcovers:

Uncanny X-Men #153, January 1982, cover by Dave Cockrum, Josef Rubinstein, and Jim Novak 

This was the third issue of Uncanny X-Men I bought off the news stands as a kid, and it was my introduction to a lot of the characters. For someone diving into the deep end of a complex continuity, it served as an odd but useful sort of skeleton key.

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold

Still the greatest version of Aquaman ever. Quite possibly the best Blue Beetle, too, no offense to Giffen, Rogers, and Hamner.

I was pretty pleased with that exchange, I must admit.

Alright, so I managed to get this one done in time to go up today rather than Friday. The remainder of the amended con schedule (#173 on Tuesday, #174 on Friday, etc.) should stay the same.
ANYWAY. A friendly reminder that I’ll be attending C2E2 in Chicago this weekend, from 4/25-27. You can find me at Table U17 in Artist Alley. Swing by and say hey!
