Pearl getting her butt beat by Nora
Issue #1 of George Pérez's new series Sirens is on sale now! Please pick up an issue at your local comic book store today! Why should you check it out?
Sirens is a beautifully drawn, well crafted story with a diverse group of well developed characters, all based on real people (yes, one of them is based on yours truly). The plot will not disappoint a comic book fan looking for a truly interesting read. In George’s own words, the Sirens are
"caught in a futuristic war that hopefully will allow me to explore a lot of themes from the POV of all these women: environmental destruction, genocide, prejudice, imperialism, love, hate, loyalty, betrayal, heroism, sacrifice, politics and even some commentary on the comics industry itself."
Sirens is a space saga with connections to various eras in history and the heroines from them, including the Roman gladiatrix Agony, gunslinging Wild West school marm Ammo and 20th-century maid/computer-construct Sherita.
They and the other Sirens once teamed to fight off a threat to their Terran home world of Earth, and they’re brought back together in the future in order to change a reality that takes out humanity — although the rest of the universe has labeled them as terrorists.
The main plot takes place in space but he intends on using the time-jumping element to challenge himself to drawing certain historical settings, from Victorian England to feudal Japan to pre-statehood Arizona.
I cannot wait to see the saga of Sirens truly unfold and I hope to see many of you guys reading it with me! Pick up Sirens today!

Lets do an experiment: reblog if you would feel safer hanging out with trans women (regardless of what genitals they currently posses) than Cis women who are transphobic and deny trans women’s obvious womanhood.
Please, for the love of music, please boost this post, and boost these women, who do not get half the attention Iggy gets for her cliché bullshit.
Prettier than most humans I know.. Casual. Now I want a cat.
Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this.
Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever.
- Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series.
- AND THIS IS A FILLER EPISODE.
- It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything.
- It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end.
- Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
- Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series.
- And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching.
Reblogging as a reminder to myself
wish this show was longer.
good if i can do anything on my birthday let me set fire and spread the fact that sesame street supports “curing” autism
By now practically everyone in the Queer Nation has heard the story of the really unfortunate incidents that occurred in March 2013 on the Washington Mall during the Supreme Court arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
But do you know the real people who it happened to? Well meet the guy who was holding the Trans* Flag that day.
As Bryan Ellicott explains, what started as a happy and exciting day of LGBT Pride & History turned into his ”Supreme Court Marriage Rally Transphobic Experience From Hell” when a staffer and one of the big Gay Inc. groups (ok so it was HRC again) became upset to see other than approved people and symbols cluttering up their photo-op moments and tried to run the riffraff off. With Bryan his Flag suddenly thrust unwilling into a staring role as "unapproved riffraff".
A political activist for the progressive and LGBT community Bryan describes himself as an ”open and proud bisexual transman”.
A native of Staten Island NY graduating from College of Staten Island with a BA in Poli Sci, he has interned in the offices of then City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, and then Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. During 2012, he went out and worked in the Ohio OFA (Organizing for Action) office helping re-elect Obama to a second term and he was a campaign aid (LGBT Liaison) to Mel Wymore in his run for the New York City Council. Bryan is also a long-time board member of the Stonewall Democrats of New York City. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy Bryan worked with FEMA doing Community Relations work.
In June of 2014 Bryan sued NYC for discrimination after he was ordered to use the wrong public pool locker room.
Says Bryan,"the bulk of my work is in the LGBT community whether it be advocating for Marriage Equality across the country, calling out the need those who talk ill to me or any of my transgender brothers and sisters as well as my continued work for Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) in New York State or when it comes to people learning about bisexuality and not thinking those horrible myths are anything but that.”
When trouble came Bryan and his friends were there standing strong representing the the entire LGBT Community. So while you are cheering the symbolism please also remember the actual person. Says Bryan,
So what do you says people? He was there for us. Can you be there for him? Please click the link and Help Fund Top Surgery for Bryan. Thanks
Says Bryan, "Everyday I become more of the man I see myself too be … We have a short period of time but I am super excited too give me my dream. I need just a little more help and we are there”.
