Cover to THOR #350 by Walt Simonson

Except working hard for something you love can create a hell of a lot of stress, too, because you care about getting it right. Anyone who thinks that passion somehow magically makes it emotionally and mentally okay has never actually been passionate about something difficult, IMGDO.
Pencils to a double-page spread by Walt Simonson for THOR #380
"Either by the year 2050 we’ve succeeded in developing a sustainable economy, in which case we can then ask your question about 100 years from now, because there will be 100 years from now; or by 2050 we’ve failed to develop a sustainable economy, which means that there will no longer be first world living conditions, and there either won’t be humans 100 years from now, or those humans 100 years from now will have lifestyles similar of those of Cro-Magnons 40,000 years ago, because we’ve already stripped away the surface copper and the surface iron. If we knock ourselves out of the first world, we’re not going to be able to rebuild a first world."
Say it with me: I WILL NOT GO BACK INTO THE CAVE.
Sustainability is zero sum bullshit. Hair shirt greens can eat my shorts. Either we build up and out, or we fall back and let the next species takeover in a million years.
May an asteroid wipe out any closed mind, human purist, Puritan Earth, false progress civilization. They won’t see it coming anyway. Ahem.

Hold a gun to my head and ask me to name my 10 favorite cartoonists and Dave Stevens would be on the list. I first encountered Stevens’ work in 1982: he had written and drawn a short story that took place in 1938 Los Angeles, featuring a character of his own creation called The Rocketeer (and his love interest, a barely-disguised — and barely clothed — Bettie Page). Stevens’ art was superb, matching the comic book work of Frank Frazetta. Stevens was clearly drawing The Rocketeer out of a love for Golden Age comic books, the mid-20th century, Buck Rogers serials, and great pinup art. My friends and I made weekly visits to the local comic book store in Boulder, Colorado, asking the owner if anything with Dave Stevens art has arrived. Sometimes Stevens’ work appeared on the cover but not the interior. Less frequently, he drew stories for the insides of the comics, too. It didn’t matter. We bought everything he drew.
Dave Stevens Covers & Stories has all of the Stevens comic book covers I loved from the 1980s, along with pencil studies and photos of the original art (so you can see the Wite-Out and blue pencil lines, which is always interesting to me). It also has lots of pin-ups and a even a few stories I hadn’t seen before (If you want the complete run of The Rocketeer stories, you can buy a copy on Amazon).
Born in 1955, Stevens’ life was cut short in 2008 when he died from leukemia. He had much more to give. — Mark Frauenfelder
I have the collected Rocketeer. Putting this on the wish list.
"Most of the intelligence community doesn’t believe he exists. The ones that do call him the ｡*:★Kawaii Soldier★:*｡. He’s an adorable ghost, you’ll never find him.”
If I do not see someone cosplay this at NYCC I will be veeeeerrrrry disappointed!
If somebody cosplays this, I better be sent pictures because OMG
