Cease & Persist

Hello! This is where my fan art lives, amongst other odds and ends. I reblog a lot of other people's art, too.

In 1972 NASA launched the "Jupiter Plaque", an engraved tablet depicting life on Earth and our location in the cosmos, for any intelligent life that may come across it.
The Los Angles Times asked several prominent artists to draw what they would have put on the plaque and why. To the surprise of everyone, Kirby the futurist and visionary drew two superbeings, a man and a woman, that would scare away potential conquerors. Suggesting to intelligent life that everyone on Earth are Supermen. This was his explanation:
"I see no wisdom in the eagerness to be found and approached by any intelligence with the ability to accomplish it from any sector of space. In the meetings between ‘discoverers’ and ‘discoverees’, history has always given the advantage to the finders. In the case of the Jupiter Plaque, I feel that a tremendous issue was thoughtlessly taken out of the world forum by a few individuals who have marked a clear trail to our door. My point is who will come-a-knocking, the trader or the tiger?"

Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.

Mighty Avengers is ending. 
Coming this November, Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #1.
Al Ewing’s still writing. Luke Ross is doing the art. Bit of a shake-up in the roster. Two new members, including Spider-Man (with 100% less Doc Ock). 
Comic Alliance’s Andrew Wheeler gets the skinny from Al Ewing himself about Mighty Avenger’s legacy and future.
