Filed under Things I Forgot To Post Last Week.
It’s the Baby Money Avengers! I drew this parody of Amazing Fantasy #15 to give to Kelly Sue at Heroescon last week as kind of a thank you for everything she’s done, not just for me, but for fandom. And what better way to thank someone than to present them with the worst thing to happen to Marvel since the swimsuit edition?
So I figured I would share it with the BMA fans out there, because why the hell not! And for those wanting to learn a cool comics thing today, Amazing Fantasy #15 is the first ever appearance of Spider-man, and an often parodied cover :)
THAT IS AVENGERS ASSEMBLE #9 WRITTEN BY KELLY SUE DECONNICK AND DRAWN BY STEFANO CASELLI!
Guys I can’t recommend picking this up enough. It’s the start of a new arc! BEST TIME TO JUMP IN! Science Bros! Spider-men and women! Captains both Marvel and America!
If you don’t have a local comic store, go here and pick it up IMMEDIATELY. If you DO have a local comic store, pre-order the shit out of it! Pre-order one for yourself, one for a friend! One for your mom, one for your dog! One for Iron Man to read while Hulk is fastball-specialing his ass to the moon!
Also more of this:
who is the big spoon/little spoon
Carol. When they’re sleeping in the same bed, they’re front facing spoons, Carol’s cheek on Jessica’s forehead. She holds her close, not just because she loves the way she feels against her, but because she’s always slightly afraid that Jessica might run.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
Non…sexual? Well, okay. If you say so. There’s a bar about three blocks from Carol’s place (where they know her pretty well), and they started going there on a saturday night (as long as New York isn’t being, you know, demolished). There’s a corner booth that’s away from most of the lights where they can get a little privacy. They order a plate of chilli fries to share, a couple of non-alcoholic beers, and then critique all of the drunken karaoke for a few hours.
who uses all the hot water in the morning
Jessica. She gets a little lost in her thoughts, standing under the spray, letting it plaster her hair to her face. It usually takes Carol tugging back the curtain with two mugs of coffee to snap her out of it.
what they order from take out
Middle Eastern. Plates of curry, french fries and hummus, kebabs, shawarma (Because Tony would NOT shut up about it), fattoush and baklava to share. on the couch, with about five or six episodes of old school trek. Jess got Carol three seasons on DVD for christmas, and they’re on the fourth re-watch.
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
Miscommunication. They’re both awful at talking - Carol because she doesn’t think to, Jessica because she doesn’t want to. Something will needle at one of them until they get more and more frustrated, and then it explodes like a mentos in a soda bottle.
who does most of the cleaning
Steve. He comes over once a week or so to catch up with Carol, to shoot the shit and watch a game of something. He gets about ten minutes in before the general mayhem and clutter starts to get to him, and he gently tidies while they talk. Jessica shows up about halfway through, rolls her eyes, and tells him not to bother with the bedroom. He’s learned his lesson on that one.
what has a season pass in their DVR
Anything that sounds like ‘The Real INSERT WORD of INSERT LOCATION’. The trashier the better. Houses full of newspapers, toddlers wearing tutus, cooking competitions, anything.
who leaves their stuff around
Carol, mostly. A lifetime of military neatness imploded as soon as she got her own place. The first time Jessica came over, there was a bra hanging from the ceiling fan, and Chewbacca was asleep on a pile of pizza boxes.
who remembers to buy the milk
Jessica. No matter how much Carol protests, she buys groceries every week. Not just groceries, but groceries from the organic grocery store. Free range. Pesticide-free. No matter how much Carol whines and screams rabbit food as she slides down the door frame.
who remembers anniversaries
Both of them. They’re actually pretty good at it, and manage to come up with at least some small surprise for each one. That is, when said anniversaries aren’t being interrupted by some twit in a cape attacking a city somewhere. Which is always.
(Aside from their last anniversary, where Jess took Carol to the air and space museum, and they had a private picnic between two B52, and took a picture for Clint of Carol sitting on top of an E-2C Hawkeye that was there for an expo)
I never, ever reblog my own art. That’s my personal thing. But I’m so proud of this. I could give a shit about the quality of the above drawing, but the amount of notes, to me, is so thrilling. Each note is someone not only supporting Carol in her new incarnation, but also a rare pairing that should be canon, and absolutely baffles me that it isn’t. Seeing people loving what I love, when I expected much less, is the best thing in the world.
Catch up on the lesbian train, Marvel.
