Project Runway: ACC Style (Costumes Hot or Not)
Bad - Basically every She-Hulk costume, in all reality. The purple and white number was the best, but even that was jjust a one-piece bathing suit.

Today on All Comics Considered, as we prep for Valentines day--we prep for valentines day?-- we’re going to delve into a comic book staple. We are speaking, of course, of the Fuckboi....
Let’s turn the page...
“man whore”/Player + misogynistic ass hole = Fuckboi.
Not just a man who has lots of sex
A particular combination of douchebaggery and player mindset
Example: not a fuckboi
Fuckbois to Discuss
Does it count if you’re constantly cheating on your wife when your “true love” who she is a clone of comes back to life?
Characters we disagree on “fuckboi” status
Today on All Comics Considered, in honor of Into the Spider-Verse, which was the perfect translation of a comic book to animation, we’ll be talking about some of our favorite other cartoons! Let’s press play!

This week, after dealing with technical issues and audio quality issues, we have our episode on Stan Lee's Legacy. So join us as we talk about one of the founders of shared modern mythology.
Good morning ACC-tion heroes. We recorded this episode before the passing of Stan Lee. While we will talk about the godfather of Marvel in an upcoming episode, today's show is all about the first three episodes of Daredevil Season 3, and then a dive into some of the books and shows we love this week, including: The Batwang, Juke Join, Sabrina, and the Haunting of Hill House.
Hey there ACC-tion Heroes! In this week's episode, Marty and Tim independently bring a handful of books to the table. Including:
Hey there ACC-tion heroes! This week, we discuss something absolutely terrifying: Marvel's continuing inability to stand up to bullies, the alt-right, and general fuckery! This time, it's about the firing of Chuck Wending. We also do a review of DC Universe, and a pullbox on a lot of comics, including Dead Rabbit, Fantastic Four, and Old Man Logan!
Wherein Marty, Tim, and Nick discuss the firing of Chuck Wending
Ellis Bojar has an amazing comic origin story. Actually, he has two. He was active in comics way back in the 90s, but after a stint in IT, he was able to start working on smaller projects until his life changed. All of that is covered in the interview -- and I will not spoil this interview.
Ellis is relatively active on twitter and you can buy his book, Red Shift, direct through Comixology. Just keep in mind, when I started this book I couldn't stop until I was done. So put away some time and go read this fantastic book!
If you like this interview, do us a solid, and talk about it on Twitter, Facebook, and with your friends, family, and frenemies!
This episode's show notes contain the articles we read and the calls to action we've made regarding Comicsgate.

Until next time, I leave you all with a call to action from JA Micheline
“If you want to prevent the next Comicsgate, Brexit or Trump, here are some suggestions: rather than claiming you support marginalised people, rather than stating that you are against the principles of a nebulous enemy, demand better of your peers, demand better of yourself, and demand it in public. Amplify the voices of marginalised people discussing issues within your community. Intercede when a peer is responding in a hostile fashion towards those discussions. Set a standard for public and communal discourse. Do not tolerate the dismissal or disrespect of your marginalised colleagues. Do not tolerate the dismissal or disrespect of marginalised strangers. And in every environment, no matter how uncomfortable: hold the line.”
Today on the show, we’re going to chat about Iron Fist season 2, Spider-man, the new Captain Marvel photos, and speculate on what’s next. Let’s turn the first page!
Iron Fist season 2 Trailer
What’s next? Game of Thrones, Comic Book movies, what’s the next aspect of nerdery that gets mined?
Join Marty, Nick, and Tim as we talk about comics that hold a different meaning for us, years after we originally read them. Then stick around for the pullbox, where we talk about The Life of Captain Marvel, Farmhand, Superman and Spider-man!
What comic speaks to you differently now than when you first read it? What did it say then? What does it say now?
What is a moment when you were watching or reading when you realized that thing wasn’t written with you as it’s target audience?
