I hate to say this, BUT the design on Saltire, the first Scottish made Superhero comic is really, really bad. Like, amateurishly bad. I love the look of the hero himself but the pages seem like they were thrown together and not really thought about in terms of matching the actual art style

I’d complain about the historical inaccuracies but that matters less since we’re talking about a giant blue man with long red hair killing demon romans while hanging out with a unicorn and a…..white….dragon? /Isn’t that an English thing?…maybe he travels to England I don’t know yet./ 

This is why I can;t have nice things. BUT if you’re interested in supporting the Scottish comics scene then click here

And if you disagree with me be sure and send me an angry rant or something. 

PS: They also didn’t make the right typography or border choices, which is one of my biggest pet peeves.

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

I never understood why the genre I love so much doesn’t love me back :(

I admit this broke my heart because…me, too.
I have to say that one of the most unexpected and amazing things about Medievalpoc is that I’ve discovered I’m not alone in feeling that way; that there is a whole community out here trying to change that.

'Aim for the moon, if you miss you'll land among the stars.'

Actually no, the stars are billions and billions of miles away. At best you’ll get sucked back into earths atmosphere and burn up on reentry.

Superpowered Angus, Blair, Alasdair and Duncan living together in what they call a base and everyone else calls a superpowered frat house in Edinburgh/Glasgow.

Duncan ends up designing all the costumes. Angus ends up in spandex.

Blair’s costume is cool as fuck and yet very practical as the first person who suggested she show some skin got a broken nose for his trouble. Duncan knows better.

Alasdair refuses spandex and has to be stopped from marching into a fight in his jeans and t-shirt.

Idk about powers. Shall think about it.

Hearty’s Jeanie pops by occasionally to check them out, patch up their wounds and snigger at them.

Hamish is the newspaper editor that makes up really stupid stories about them.

All the Frances having powers that counteract the Scotland’s. Like mine having a -very stylish- lasso that saps strength- though. and they’re villains or anti heroes.

I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?

PLEASE EXPLAIN

I’d have put it in my fridge but I have butter in there so…

Tell me some good books or authors so I can get them on my kobo?

OKAY I lied, there was one chapter in James Hutsons Fluke that actually spooked me, and I can;t really explain it because it would just sound odd. Go read it. 

It’s talking animals so it’s really not that bad. I don;t have nightmares or anything. 

Horror novels never make sense to me. Word’s aren;t really scary no matter how vivid my puny imagination is. They make me more excited and giddy than scared. 

Movies are pretty scary because sudden;y my brain has no control over things. 

Video games are scariest because not only do I not have control over what’s going on, but I also have to navigate my way through it. I am all at once in complete control while having no control. 

Basically if they ever make Stephen king books into video games I might actually be a bit scared by his work beyond the internal ache his long winded sentences give to my silly brain. 

I also can’t take James Hutson seriously as he spends too long telling me what everyone is wearing. For no reason. 

YES I CRITIQUE THINGS AS I READ I’M NOT SORRY. I’M PEDANTIC. 

I can’t believe I did something so humiliating !

I dunno who they are but cuties!
