"You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete. People probably think I don’t even try to work out, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack."

COMICS, EVERYBODY! THE HISTORY OF STAR-LORD EXPLAINED
By Chris Haley
With the still-can’t-believe-they-actually-made-this-one Guardians of the Galaxy opening this weekend, it’s time again to break down the convoluted history of comics in the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Courtesy of cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson, the subject of this edition has an uncommonly strong claim to the title of unlikely hero. Or at least, unlikely movie star. That’s right, we’re talking about Star-Lord, the Marvel Comics space hero created by Steve Englehart and Steve Gan.
Whether you’re new to Guardians and Star-Lord and curious to learn more about his ridiculous history or you’re a hardcore Marvel nerd looking to Um-Actually this feature into oblivion, you’ll be sure to enjoy this special tribute to the galaxy’s newly famous nobody.
Hey! This comic is cute and great and you should read it. My best friend in the world Chris Haley drew it and it was coloured by Jordan Gibson (who is now going exclusively by Star-Jord).
Aquaria Nautica Neptunia!
or better known as Namora. The cousin of Namor.
Did a little redesign on the both of them. Made Namora’s costume more along the lines of a classic one-piece bathing suit. Im pretty happy with how she came out.
Namor im really going to have to sit down and figure out what i want to do with him. He hasn’t struck the right balance for me of uber badass and King just yet.
The piece was done from a suggestion from anklewings. Who if you couldn’t tell from her name, is a huge Namora fan.
Dang it Kris now I want to cosplay this. WHY MUST YOU BE SO AWESOME
I AM GROOT
