Prints and cards available until 2/1/2015 in the shop, or contact David for the original. Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (but not in that order). Context is irrelevant. (Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends) “John, dude, can we talk about the fact that you just turned into a fucking bear? No? Okay.” Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends “It means you’ll be hated and feared! Isn’t that wonderful?” (Firestar #1) “Professor, is it true what they say about exposition in X-books?” (Firestar #1) Wait ’til they find out she hasn’t even read Carlyle! (Firestar #1) Oh. Angelica. Honey. No. (Firestar #1) I’m pretty sure there’s a Talking Heads music video that starts exactly like this. (Firestar #1) DON’T TRUST HER, ANGELICA! SHE’LL BLOW UP YOUR HORSE! (Firestar #1) This horse’s name is Butter Rum. Don’t get too attached. (Firestar #2) The Emma Frost who actually cares about her students did not make her first appearance until some years later. This Emma Frost is just an unapologetic monster. (Firestar #2) Emma Frost is the best evil narrator. (Firestar #2) “What could POSSIBLY go wrong?” (Firestar #2) Miles ‘ships it SO hard. (Firestar #2) That horror-movie WHINNEY! in the last panel, though. (Firestar #2) Remember that time Emma Frost convinced a vulnerable teenage girl that she had killed her beloved horse by becoming sexually aroused? BECAUSE THAT DEFINITELY HAPPENED. (Firestar #2) “What? This? Oh, no, I build killer robots of ALL my friends.” (Firestar #3) AHAHAHA OH RANDALL YOU’RE SO DOOMED (Firestar #3) Firestar X-Plains X-Men #193. (Firestar #3) Seriously, I’m pretty sure Angelica’s dad being kind of a dick to her is the only thing that saves him from CERTAIN DOOM. (Firestar #3) (He feels bad about it, though, so he still gets beaten up in the airport.) (Firestar #3) Why does she throw her drink? We may never know. (Firestar #3) And then she just straight-up breaks into “Stars” from Les Mis. (Firestar #4) So sinister! (Firestar #4) And that’s the end of Randall. (Firestar #4) Fight scene, or breakin’ it down on the dance floor? YOU BE THE JUDGE! (Firestar #4) For full effect, you have to imagine Firestar’s dialogue read by Alison Brie as Annie Edison. (Firestar #4) Next Week: Secret Wars Why we drink.
