multiversitycomics:

In July, Multiversity Comics hosted Guardians Month, a month-long digital art show featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy and Rocket Raccoon, with the aim of then putting those pieces up for auction to benefit Bill Mantlo, Rocket’s co-creator. For those unaware, in 1992 Bill Mantlo suffered injuries when he was struck in a hit-and-run car accident while rollerblading, and it left him in need of constant care due to a brain injury suffered in the accident. You can read more about Bill’s condition and Guardians month in our introduction post, and you can read more about what you can do to help Bill right here.

Our Guardians Month art month benefit is now live! Bid on the above pieces from Jojo Seames, Valentine de Landro, Jenny Frison, Christian Ward, Joe Hunter, Chris Visions, CP Wilson III, Mike Walsh and more! All proceeds go to Bill Mantlo’s continued care and support.

You can find everything for auction at this link, and reblogs are very much appreciated!

Here is the clip of the first Daily Show broadcast after the WTC attack on 9/11, in which Jon Stewart openly admits that to open his show with some kind of rousing inspiring speech is a cliche, attempts it anyway, and then breaks down crying. I know people like to make jokes or snarky remarks or whatnot on days like today, using it as an opportunity to remind everyone how we fucked up and how fucked up we’ve become, but… 

The country is in a different place now than we were 13 years ago, there’s no doubt about it. There’s this thing Stewart says here — about how cultural walls came down for a moment, about remembering Martin Luther King Jr’s dream and how there’s a chance for that dream to become real in the aftermath of all this destruction and devastation… well, it makes recent news events and the state of the country even more depressing. 

I don’t mean to preach to anyone, though. I don’t even know why I decided to watch this again, honestly; I might come back and delete this later. I like Stewart a lot, though. (Throwback Thursday, I guess?)

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

oh my god, what’s this? no, not ian’s face, i know it’s horrifying, but i’m actually talking about the new morning glories chat! to recap: every time a new morning glories issue comes out a bunch of us gather in a chat to talk about the issue. it’s an official thing, on the back of the book, and nick, joe, and other members of the crew tend to show up! it’s a huge blast and we’d love you to stop by.

so: this month’s mg chat will be on 9/10 from 8:13 PM EST to 11:13 PM EST at this tinychatwe just have a few general restrictions; 1. be nice, 2. be mature (please don’t spam even if you’re excited), and 3. don’t use the chat outside of the time listed! i’m the only one running it and i need to be there in case there’s spambots/mean people/etc. the chat is all text, no video. 

i heard this issue is about the av club, but according to matt it’s actually about shrek gifs? i guess the av club would be the kind of teens to joke about shrek gifs. i don’t know. see you there!

yay new issue and fan chat this week!

"i heard this issue is about the av club, but according to matt it’s actually about shrek gifs?"

I’ve never been so happy to be a resource.
