I used to laugh so much about this. Not once in all the movies does a woman die on screen.
I hope that Jurassic World doesn’t break the canon.

Also met Franco, the pen behind TINY TITANS, AW YEAH COMICS, and more… Managed not to hug him, though I desperately wanted to! I love this man’s writing… And he gave me two autographed PATRICK THE WOLFBOY books for my classroom! Aw yeah, Franco!
Met this awesome man at ConnectiConn today… I was stumbling all over my tongue, but he was fabulous. Gave me bookmarks for my students and asked to see scans of last year’s student fan art… Wish I’d been more coherent! Even teachers and writers get tongue-tied, though… Check out his free downloads and sketches! G-MAN is also a great all-ages title; if you liked BIG NATE, you’ll love G-Man!

Best friends who are also exes. Gotta love ‘em.
As they’re always good things to have, check out this image of what a solar eclipse looks like from space. It really highlights the fact that when the Sun’s being blocked out, it means you’re just in that objects shadow.
The same applies to night time, you’re essentially just in Earth’s shadow.
It’s also a lovely allegory for the dark times of life… Feeling like your personal Sun, all that makes life worth living, is being blotted out, but really, you’re just in the shadows.
Is it just me or do these two resemble a certain courier team…?
Yes, they do - FAR more than they resemble Jaxom and Ruth!
Even superheroes need to just hang out once in a while.
In 1988, NASA allowed Robin Williams to surprise the crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-26) with a phone call in which he did a take of his character from Good Morning Vietnam.

I can’t wait until Christmas to post this… thank you, Chris Giarrusso!

Help Me Build a Word Wall!
Calling all cosplayers, fan artists, regular artists, comics fans, and the young at heart: I am a fourth grade teacher, when I’m not writing or on Tumblr. I’m trying to create a Virtual Word Wall for my incoming fourth graders, and since I’m known as “the teacher crazy about superheroes,” I thought I might have some fun making examples.
All you need to do to help me out is this: either as yourself or as a favorite superhero, take a photo or make some art of yourself or a superhero holding a sign proclaiming your favorite word.
Stan Lee, for example, would be holding a sign saying “Excelsior!” (I am asking The Man Himself to do this, by the way.). Hawkeye might hold “arrows,” Captain America might hold “patriotic.” An artist might choose “impressionist” and so on.
I got the idea from the podcast “A Way With Words” - my examples are from THEIR word wall at http://www.waywordradio.org/word-wall/ - and I’d love to get as many Tumblr submissions as possible. Please reblog… But also, please remember that this is for FOURTH GRADE; challenging words are okay, but please keep words and pictures rated PG or G!
Post them with the tag COMICBOOKMAMA and WORD WALL… or send them to me via a link. Thank you!
