“Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.”—

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
Nintendo’s sales haven’t been what they hoped for or expected, so all the executives got together and made the decision to cut their salaries in half to ensure their employees still get paid. They say it’s the fault of the executives that the products aren’t selling well, not their employees, so it isn’t fair for the employees to have to take the hits for that.

“In part, I picked X-23 for this issue because of how much readers were left wanting in Phil’s past work with her. It was a great opportunity, like with Hawkeye, to give the readers a menu item they were craving. Beyond that, seeing Laura and Natasha together gives us a new perspective on Black Widow’s mission and mental state, and we get, as well, the opportunity to see how Wolverine’s passing affects both women, even if we only show that in subtle ways. They are, after all, on a mission.”—Nathan Edmondson on X-23 and Black Widow’s upcoming team up (via javi150190)
