A new She Has No Head! – about Joss Whedon’s first comics foray into the Buffyverse, with FRAY.
I’d love to give this week’s panel of the week to the reappearance of Cass Cain in Batman Inc. #6, since I’m pretty excited (though also super nervous) about her return to the Bat books as “Blackbat”. But in truth, I don’t love the costume – the shredded cape is just ridiculous – even more ridiculous than regular capes – which we all know are ridiculous, but which at least look badass. It also doesn’t really “look” like Cass. i.e. if a caption didn’t tell me it was her, I’d have had no idea. See?

…as a writer and artist, and frankly as a person. Not going to really delve into it, but I came across this great bit on twitter, which I will just say is some damn damn fine advice. Advice I’m going to keep trying to remember. Every day. In fact, I’m thinking of having it tattooed on my arm.
The last two for me, are particularly relevant. Oh, and number 4. I always forget number 4 (um, and 5 and 7).
