Sigh.

re: Emerald City.

IT’S NOT A MOVIE THING. 

Guys, I know you want a CM movie and, believe me, I’d be first in line, but I am first and foremost a comic book fan.  And the notion that anyone might be disappointed in this cool thing that is happening because it’s not a movie thing, is a profound bummer to me.  

So I’m sorry if I got anyone’s skewed in the wrong direction: it is unequivocally NOT a movie thing.  

As soon as I am certain everything is in place, I will quit being coy.  I only teased because I know people are making travel plans NOW and you’ll need to be there early for this.

Um… I just got an email. SUCH an email. You guys are gonna wanna come to Emerald City Comic Con. Can’t say more yet, but you’re gonna wanna come and you’re gonna wanna come a day EARLY

Continuing Chaotic Good/Lawful Good Convo with Kit

I’m getting breakfast for the kids so I don’t have a lot of time to spend on this, but —

> hm hMMMM though my thought was she only complies with the rules when she agrees with them in the first place?

Well, I’m not much of an RPGer (I’ve only played one game), so my knowledge of this stuff is cursory, but the reference I used to double check my thinking was this: http://easydamus.com/lawfulgood.html — and it includes the line, “a lawful good character will not honor a law that runs contrary to his alignment.”  While I do believe Carol will defy authority and break rules (and you’ll see that happen soon), I don’t think she’d do so lightly. (We also HAVE to take into account her history. As much as I’d love to forget her behavior during civil war, we don’t get to do that.) 

I *do* think Carol would lie as a strategy — I’m not sure how strict these prescriptions are.  (For what it’s worth — I also think everyone listed below as ‘well known lawful good characters’ would lie under the right circumstances too.)

Of COURSE we WANT Carol to be “Chaotic Good” — that’s the sexiest.  But it doesn’t feel quite as true (to me, anyway).  Look at this list of characters they put under LG and the ones they put under CG: 

Well known lawful good characters from film or literature include: Luke Skywalker (Star Wars), Mister Spock (Star Trek), Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), and Superman (DC Comics).”

Well known chaotic good characters from film or literature include: Han Solo (Star Wars), Batman (DC Comics), Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter), and Robin Hood.”

To me, without a doubt, Carol is more the former than the latter.  

(Even though I agree with the outcome, the “well she’s military” argument doesn’t work for me — Pappy Boyington and Chuck Yeager were also military.  Occupation is not character.) 

Look, I write character by intuition, not by a set of rules.  Under my pen, she’ll behave the way that feels ‘in character’ to me in the situation in which she’s been place. But that said, if you ask me to look back at her history and say where she falls — Lawful Good. 

6deep nerd, carol danvers, captain marvel, sharoncarter,

Hey there! I am really looking for a comic for my 7 yr old daughter that has a strong female lead, she is extremely advanced reading wise but I don't want the content to be too mature... Do you think that the new Captain Marvel would be suitable? Failing that any good, strong female leads for us to try on a regular basis? Thanks for reading!

I *think* Captain Marvel should be fine (I’ve got a six year old boy and I can’t think of anything off the top of my head from the previous run that I wouldn’t let him read), but I would always recommend you pre-screen.  

Edited to add — yes! Check out Princeless

here's a question. i don't know if anyone's asked you about this before, but have you given any thought to whereabouts carol's alignment would fall in the chaotic good/neutral good/lawful good scale? i have my guess here but i'd really like to hear your take!!

Lawful good, I think.  I wish I could say chaotic good, because it just feels like that has more swagger, but I think it’s a lie. 

How do you decide what to name a character you created?

That varies quite a bit.  Sometimes the name is a reference to someone or something, sometimes it’s just an intuitive choice.  Sometimes I’ll do something like flip through a phone book or something.*

Helen Cobb got her last name from Jerrie Cobb.  Her first name… just felt right.  No idea where it came from.  

*The only reason to have a phone book anymore.  

Are there times that you finish writing something (like, say, Helen Cobb's letter to Carol) and you can't help but lean back and say to yourself, "Fuck, that's good"? Or is that not something that you allow yourself to think about during the writing process?

HA HA HA HA HA HA… no.  Alas.

I always think I could have done better if I’d had more time. 

Hey, I'm new to your blog. What comics do you write?

Regularly, at present:

Captain Marvel & Avengers Assemble (Marvel) 

Ghost (Dark Horse)

Pretty Deadly (Image) 

Changes coming soon.
