Interminable Ramble

Chris Roberson makes up stories.


Even as Black girls and Black women from young to old are erased from history, as both supporters of justice for Black people and as ones who also experience State violence, Black girls and Black women, young to old, regularly show up. Always have. No matter what lie anyone tells you whether on Twitter or in textbooks.

#FERGUSON protestor returns tear gas canister back to sender…
This is Amerikkka 2014

#This is such an important picture #This is the flower in the rifle barrel #I want this picture in textbooks and graffiti’d on buildings #ferguson #I want this picture to be talked about whenever people try to say ‘The people started it!’ #A bag of chips in one hand and a can of tear gas in the other #If you think that this is ‘they started it’ then you can go fuck yourself (via)



This is the young man that was walking with Mike Brown


This is important. I’m not going to conclude anything until ALL the facts are in, but there is not a single part of me that thinks this guy is lying.


Toxicnotebook Recommends: iZombie

"My name is Gwen Dylan, and I’m not the girl I used to be."

Gwendolyn “Gwen” Dylan is a 20-something gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery. Once a month she must eat a human brain to keep from losing her memories, but in the process she becomes consumed with the thoughts and personality of the dead person – until she eats her next brain. She sets out to fulfill the dead person’s last request, solve a crime or right a wrong.

iZombie is a love letter to cheesy horror movies written by Chris Roberson and drawn by Michael & Laura Allred. Besides our recently-undead zombie girl Gwen, the cast features (but doesn’t stop at) a 60s go-go ghost, a were-terrier, a suave mummy, a posse of paintball-gun wielding vampires, a group of holy monster hunters, and a secret government group called the Dead Presidents. Gwen can’t remember how or why she became a zombie (or much else of her past life), but she slowly discovers she has a much bigger purpose in her world than she realized…

With a diverse cast of offbeat characters, great writing, and gorgeous art, iZombie is one of my favorite Vertigo titles. As a bonus, it has one of the best ‘coming out as bisexual’ plotlines I’ve ever read (no, I won’t tell who it is!) and a new, original take on how people turn into various monsters.

Bill Sienkiewicz 1990: Big Numbers #1


Big Numbers was to be an ambitious 12-part graphic novel by two of the biggest and revolutionary comic book masters at the top of their games.

This was the the Unfinished Symphony, the Beach Boys’ Smile, the lost Camelot never completed of comics. It’s fitting it was published by “Mad Love.” The still legendary Alan Moore, Bill Sienkiewicz and Al Columbia teamed up in the wild days of their youth. Two issues were published and a third was reputed to have been destroyed by Columbia in a fit of perfectionist pique.

Comic Book Resources summarizes the story here, along with links to Bill’s side of the story and a FULL SET OF PHOTOCOPIES OF THE LOST THIRD ISSUE!
