❝ 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. ❞

Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)

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

(via nerdhapley)

True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.

Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.

Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.

And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.

Alps Ettore Moni

Even though high-altitude tourism is undoubtedly a considerable source of income for mountain communities – who are frequently neglected by national agricultural and farming support policies - massive anthropisation brings about a significant modification of landscape. The pictures of this inquiry aim at upsetting the viewers to make them feel like any mountain enthusiast who at the end of their trip are faced with something they would not want to find. My goal is to sensitize everybody and make them be aware of the irreversible damage that is nowadays suffered by our wonderful landscapes.”

Lesson One: Proper Citation
Men get quoted using surnames
Marx, Foucault, Habermas
But my professor keeps referring to my favorite theorists as
Iris, Emma, Rosa
or, because pronouns are hard, they ask me trick questions like
“Is it Judith or Jack now?”
knowing full well the answer is Halberstam.
My female professors get cited as Ann and Vicky
in articles written by their colleagues because
We’re all friends here, right?

Lesson Two: Decorum
At my first college debate tournament the men talked over every speech I gave
“She needs her partner to do the work for her because she’s an idiot”
while the judge sat there pretending not to hear
until I yelled “Fuck you” in the middle of my last speech.
The judge docked me speaker points because
using swear words is very unladylike.
He used my prep time to tell me so.

Lesson Three: Panel Etiquette
My adviser gave a talk on the politics of eating together at a conference
and spent her entire Q&A fielding thinly veiled jabs and questions like
“What if you don’t have a table” while the audience talked over her.
“If you don’t have a table, you take a table,” she spoke into the mic.
And I wondered if I could expect to be called honey and sweetie and young lady
at panels and if I cut off the speakers midway through and say
Imma let you finish but don’t EVER call me anything but my name again
would they use my speech time to chastise me for swearing?

Lesson Four: Constructing Arguments
When you’re the only feminist in the department, wear a skirt that’s too short and a pin in your lapel that says “Keep Warm, Burn the Rich”.
When the straight men tell you they don’t understand queer theory, tell them queer theory doesn’t understand them.
When they insult your work, insult their arguments. Is that ~political~ enough?
Don’t wait your turn. You don’t have to be polite.
Take the fucking table because you have earned your fucking seat.
