Bacchus and Ariadne - Antoine-Jean Gros
And here’s an example of a God in love with a woman computer scientist. True story, Ariadne invented depth-first-search.

the gradual domination of the Welcome to Night Vale fandom, part 2
oh my god im in the last one
if someone hasn’t already linked you, here is a download masterpost,
it’s not the one I used a while ago, but tumblr took all of them down, also this livejournal is great for other series that the runaways cross over with such as, Young Avenger, Avengers Academy and Daken.
Went to the store today, spent a lot of money buying comics… and if it wasn’t for sites like this, I don’t think I would have bought any, ever. I’m not always try before you buy, but sometimes I have no choice. Yes, I have nearly all the new Journey Into Mystery comics digitally, but because of my foray into Hastings today, I have almost all of them legally now, too. Hell, I have Thor: The Mighty Avenger in book format and I am STILL buying the individual issues. I’m lucky to have a comic store in town, so I will support the industry, because I know few can. But I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for these posts and sites.
So don’t be an ass tumblr, and keep taking them down. :(
So tumblr has decided to be a suck and delete a bunch of masterposts and tumblrs that made masterposts. As such a lot of links were lost (mainly the-long-box whom was an amazing comic blog moment of silence for them) and I had to go back and search for a lot of broken links. I, unfortunately, wasn’t able to find them all. I do believe I fixed a majority of the broken links and in my search was able to find new posts and new folks who are spreading the comic love.
Here’s the newly updated posts:
I take no credit for any of these posts.
Remember to also support the industry and buy comics. Sites to buy comics:
definitely not an X-Factor masterpost!
So I figured that since I talk up the Marvel Adventures Avengers series so much, I may as well spread the love so everyone can see what I’m talking about, right? Basically, this is part of a “for kid’s line” but the stories are actually very funny, heartwarming and just generally enjoyable on all fronts. It really places a lot of emphasis on the team dynamic and shows everyone not just fighting evil but playing basketball and going shopping. You don’t have to be super familiar with anyone to read them, either. Just pick up an issue and you’re pretty much good. It’s probably one of my favorite series ever and I’m so sad that it ended.
Marvel Adventures Avengers
If you like this, I’d recommend pretty much all of the other Marvel Adventures line, especially the Spider-man volumes. Let me know if there are issues with any of these, I can try to reupload them!
Black Widow Masterpost
I hit 500 followers yesterday, and to thank you guys I’ve put this together!
- you need a comic reader (Comical is a simple one)
- a few are zipped, but majority is single issues
- message me if any links break

Masterpost of Secret Avengers Comics
It’s the Avengers as a black ops superhero team. They fight crime, kick butt, and secretly save the world. ‘Nuff said.
You can use either 7-Zip or WinRAR to open up the .rar files, and either Comical or ComicRack to view the .cbr or .cbz files. (Most people I’ve discovered prefer Comical, as I believe it’s a much simpler program, but I actually recommend ComicRack. It takes a while to get used to the features, but trust me, it’s totally worth it.)
Secret Avengers Vol. 1
What do you get when you mix a reborn-again Captain, an irredeemable thief, ‘Loony Moony,’ a former Russian spy, an Asgardian spirit guide, an ex-SHIELD agent, a giant blue cat, an alien space cop and Iron Man 2.0? One fucking spectacular comic. Enjoy. (Currently on-going.)
