Occasional Links: The Capdickery Edition


Rags Morales: "I'm More Than Just Identity Crisis!"

New Nightwing artist Rags Morales laments to Newsarama about being pigeonholed as "that Identity Crisis guy":

"But I try to do better with every new project, so maybe you're seeing it like I feel everyone sees me -- as Identity Crisis. Please don't get me wrong, it's been a Godsend, and I loved what it's done for me. In some ways though, I feel like I may have failed the story a bit. That's something that kind of bug's me a little. I think most people don't think beyond that series when it comes to my work. I have a body of work, and there were some chances I took with Identity Crisis that I wouldn't want to do again, like the whole "casting" thing. From now on, I'm gonna think "character" instead of "who can play this character."

In Defense Of Tigra

Calvin Pitt writes:

"Bendis, please, stop writing about Tigra. I know Yu said she was gonna get a moment in the sun to make up for all the crap lately, but I have no faith in you to do right by the character. No faith whatsoever. If it was your pets, Luke Cage and Jessica Drew, then I might believe you were doing this with the purpose of showing what true heroes they are, and how they persevere. But since it's a character you've professed to hate, a character you have Edwin Jarvis, of all characters, calling an obscenity, I can't give you that benefit of the doubt (and we're gonna talk about that Jarvis thing tomorrow). Because you've given no indication you deserve it. The funny thing is, once upon a time (in Mexico) I wasn't prepared to buy that you did hate Tigra, thinking you just said that as a joke. I believe it now."

So what obscenity did Jarvis call Tigra, anyway? No cussing, please -- you can answer with the first letter and a dash and the word "word."

Tina Fey As "Tinkerbell"

From a Diesel Advertisement

She's a quirky, self-effacing fairy. Sexy because of her non-sexiness. Funny but like in this way that you don't really think she's funny, like you forgot she was funny.

Giving Tinabell a run for her money:

Meet "Duke" From "G.I. Joe"

Actor Channing Tatum has joined the 'G.I. Joe' team -- signing up to play Duke in the upcoming

In other news, here is my pick to play "Zarana" --

Video: Super-FRIENDS


  1. I don't think he called her an obscene word; I think he called her "an obscenity." Something like: "That woman is an obscenity."

    My copy is on the other side of the world, so I can't double check, but I think that's what Jarvis said.

  2. >CLAP< >CLAP< >CLAP< >CLAP<

    I do believe in fairies if they're Tina Fey fairies!


  3. It's good that people are still ripping on Bendis - it gives him dialogue filler for Powers.

    And we call Morales 'The Rape pages guy' around here, as 'Identity Crisis Guy' just ain't as funny.

  4. IIRC, he said that if Tony "hired that Tigra #$%@" he could do the laundry himself, or something of that kind. No specific obscenity alluded to, just the euphemistic punctuation marks.

    Amazingly out of character for old Edwin, though.

  5. Oh man, Pink would make an awesome Zarana!

  6. That SuperFRIENDS was the funniest shit I've seen in a LOOOOOONG time.

  7. Val,

    I'm sorry for saying the occasional obscenity offhandedly in comments I made in the past. I didn't know you preferred to keep the comments profane-free. Like, I didn't even think you had a preference either way. I'll keep my posts clean from now on.

  8. My friend and I call Morales "That [crappy] Valiant artist who ruined books."

  9. Tinabelle is hawt.

    Sorry, that's my objectifying comment for the week. I'll keep it kosher from here on in. :)

  10. I don't have a pet name for Rags Morales, but I will sometimes say, "Quit ragging the kid," and then chortle.

    But not often.

    And is it just me, or is Channing Tatum kinda drunk in that picture?

  11. Hehehe. I remember that episode of Friends. Transponster. ^_^

  12. Man, Pink is PERFECT for Zarana, kudos, kudos.

  13. ArnstAlienRe Tigra: See the encyclopedia entry on Edwin Jarvis ( ). Toward the end, he's mentioned as having referred to "that Tigra bitch."
