Wearing Vintage Boys Blazer, Anthroplogie Shirt (different color HERE) , AG Colored Jeans, Frye James Wingtip
Besides how tight these pants are there is very little “Faintly” in my “Masculine” right now. (scratch that boys wear tight jeans too) How do you feel about a little clown meets 90’s pimp? This is a lot of blue huh?
Fashion has to have a “peacock” affect sometimes. That ability to just have the “look at me! look at me” affect on the rest of the world. I don’t think getting dressed is fun if it’s not “FUN” sometimes. Personal style has to sometimes be about showing that side of yourself completely literally, meaning your emotion of the moment and exactly how you are feeling is translated into your outfit.

I think mainstream American Superhero comics lag a little behind other expressions of teenage life in culture, and if you do that, you’re risking writing comics that appeal to the parents of teenagers rather than the teenagers themselves.
In terms of blocks, I suspect a good chunk of it comes out of comics being a visual medium. Text is a great obfuscator of content. You can read a book, and your parents will never know that it contains matter they’d have trouble with, because they’re never actually going to read it. But comics, being visual, are transparent. At a glance, they can judge it — and so often judge it at a glance, without actually reading it.
So you walk a line. I started “Young Avengers” with the scene for a number of reasons, but one of them was certainly seeing if Marvel would let me do it. If I weren’t able to write that, I’d have had to bow out of the gig, because there would be no way of doing anything I thought worth doing.
Marvel didn’t even raise an eyebrow.
I think the biggest blockade to the creation of the content is creators not choosing to create the content.”

Summer Glau practicing fight choreography for the movie, Serenity (2005). Her kicks are amazing for not having any martial arts experience. She only did ballet. It makes me wish that more ballerinas got into martial arts. Their flexibility is perfectly suited for it.
