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 :)
BAKED GOODS LIBERATION FRONT.
Hands up if you’re stoked as fuck for the new Secret Avengers book!
AKA Coulson and Clint meeting in 616 for the first time.
HAPPY NEW YEARS, BABY MONEY AVENGERS STYLE. (For those just joining us, The origin of the Baby Money Avengers.)
With, as always, backup from Valkyrie and their long-suffering handler, Phil Coulson.
- If you’re wondering why Daimon Hellstrom has a trash can, you need to educate yourself.
- If you don’t think Captain Marvel has a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME.
- And if you disagree that the BMA are tearing shit up in a golden, rocket-powered stretch Hummer…sir, please remove yourself from the internet.
I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL 2013!!
I’m just saying. You know. Come on tumblr. You know what the real answer is…
Hint. It’s not the cake.
Okay sometimes it’s the cake.
So Mary and I are fucking useless, and we both opened one present early, each.
Long story short, SHE GOT ME CLINT AND COULSON ADAGIO TEAS ASDFGHJKL.
If anyone knows who did the art on these, or if the tea-maker has a tumblr, PLEASE help me track them down, I would love to thank them for the delicious tea and gorgeous art!
Eeeeeeee she knows me so well.
You know what doesn’t make things okay? Putting a disclaimer on a masterpost with handy links for torrenting comics: If you liked these, go buy them! If you liked these, support the creators.
How about I go to a bakery and just grab a dozen or so cupcakes, but you know, maybe next time I’ll think about paying for them, or I could just eat free cake. Because, free cake is delicious and I didn’t have to pay for it.
And then I’ll offer up some free cake to a few other folks, but put a sign up that says “hey, maybe pay the bakery so the bakers can have money and keep on making cake.” Except let’s be honest for a second, free cake is delicious, so while a few honest and well meaning folk fork over cash and purchase a nice cake, the majority of people are eating free cake.
And then your favorite cake gets cancelled because while everyone was eating it, no one was paying for it.
Because I’m pretty sure if I went to the nice French bakery down the street and tried to walk out with a box of pistachio macarons and not pay for them, someone will come around the counter and tase me.
Long tumblr post, short: The success of a book is measured on sales and pre-orders, and some other things. You can contribute to the success of a title by buying it. You can purchase MOST titles same-day digitally or go into a brick and mortar store, or order from an online comic shop that will mail you paper comics. So please, educate me. If you love something, or you want to support a creator or creative team, why are you not doing it?
If you have questions about how to purchase comics or need help finding a store, or getting started reading comics digitally, please let me know. I’m more than happy to help.
It’s pretty fucking simple, guys. Steal cake? Get tazed.
Torrent comics? Contribute to the demise of an industry I assume we all love.
USE YOUR HEADS.
HO HO HO DOOT DOOT.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TUMBLR*! Cut these babies out, stick’em to some cardboard, punch a hole in the top, thread some ribbon, hang those bbs up…HAPPY HOLIDAYS ETC!
*Okay obviously these are all Christmas themed, and that is because that’s what I know. I figured it was safest to do what I know, as opposed to risk offending someone with a different background. SO. If you celebrate something other than Christmas at this time of year, PLEASE SEND ME AN ASK and educate me! Tell me what I can draw, and what characters! HOLIDAY THINGS FOR EVERYONE.
Mandy and I plan our futures together.
You know all the cars in the SHIELD lot were busted and he has to maintain his cover
And Phil Coulson does not take public transportation
And Clint is like "you can borrow my car"
And it's this fucking beat up old caddy, and the horn plays la cucaracha
it was one of Clint's spoils from the tracksuit Draculas
So the inside smells like taco bell and goat
All of the buttons and shit are in Ukranian.
and like, there's fuzzy dice, and Phil is just like
I will kill you so painfully you will beg to not be alive
He pulls up to the school and accidently hits the wrong button and the hydraulics start
He backs into a hydrant and the trunk springs open, and an underage girl in a nurse outfit climbs out and runs away
I'm done. I can't. I am literally on the floor.
THIS IS WHY THEY DON'T LET US WRITE THE COMICS
Our record-embarrasing one issue run on Hawkguy.
Like it's a fill-in for Fraction and Aja
We will have so many ended runs after one issue
They start calling us the run-killers.
They put us on books that need to drop sales numbers so they can be cancelled
Like Avengers arena?
We're like the closers.
'Fuck, guys. This new Avengers Arena book really isn't working out. What do we do?' 'CALL IN THE RUN-KILLERS.'
want to be reviled
Like Greg Land and Liefeld.
WE COULD BE THE NEW LAND AND LIEFELD.
I ALREADY DON'T DRAW FEET.
Baby Money Avengers. (Click the first to embiggen)
Sometimes when it’s really late, and Starkexpos is drunk, we enable eachother and come up with really, really, really stupid stuff. And then I blow off working for a day in order to draw it all.
LET’S FACE IT THIS IS NOT THE WORST THING YOU HAVE CAUGHT ME DRAWING.
IT’S MY 5,000th POST!
I’ve wasted a year and a half of my life on this site, making amazing friends, getting published in Marvel comics, leaning how to draw, falling in love with comic books all over again, and…
SCRATCH THAT NOT A WASTE AT ALL I LOVE YOU TUMBLR!
Damn, Clint. Stop bringing home all of these archery-related sidekicks!
Seriously though, if you’re not reading Fraction and Aja’s Hawkeye, you’re out of your goddamned mind.
Avengers Dungeons & Dragons night never ends well.
They usually end up fighting real dragons.
Bonus Mom Coulson bringing the Mountain Dew and Cheetos.
FUCKIN AVENGERS PIRATES. YOU KNOW WHAT’S UP.
Okay so. Mary. Fucking Mary. Wrote this little Clint/Coulson Pirate AU for a meme. THIS ONE HERE ACTUALLY. And it’s just fucking amazing. And I want it. I want an Avengers Pirate AU.
And she said she would write one. But only if this post gets 100 notes. She doesn’t think enough people would be into it. Or she’s trying to torture me. One or the other. SO LIKE IT. REBLOG IT. GET 100 NOTEs.
And not only will she write an Avengers Pirate AU, but I’ll illustrate it.
Now off to draw pirate Steve and Tony, Pirate Bruce, Pirate everything……
