Chili opened the script again, flipped through a few pages looking at the format. “You know how to write one of these?”

"You asking me," Catlett said, "do I know how to put down words on a piece of paper? That’s what you do, man, you put down one word after the other as it comes in your head. It isn’t like having to learn how to play the piano, like you have to learn notes. You already learned in school how to write, didn’t you? I hope so. You have the idea and you put down what you want to say. Then you get somebody to add in the commas and shit where they belong, if you aren’t positive yourself. Maybe fix up the spelling where you have some tricky words. There people do that for you. Some, I’ve even seen scripts where I know words weren’t spelled right and there was hardly any commas in it. So I don’t think it’s too important. You come to the last page you write in ‘Fade out’ and that’s the end, you’re done.”

Chili said, “That’s all there is to it?”

"That’s all."

Chili said, “Then what do I need you for?”

Gotta say… Bendis writes the fuck out of the X-Men. Right here is a panel where everything changed. Also, HOLY SHIT KRIS ANKA! The colors are fucking majestic. Every hour is the golden hour. Anyway, right here Scott Summers earned some empathy. You gotta read this issue for the scoop. Uncanny 26. Historically, Claremont got the romance of Scott Summers down. If things had gone right, Slim woulda retired to raise some kids and show up every now and again to fuck around in Asgard with the New Mutants. Instead, Marvel launched X-Factor and Scott Summers became the shittiest dad in the multiverse or wherever. The Bendis X-Men books are nailing that spirit of the Paul Smith era where Scott Summers is out at sea, fighting serpents, dealing with how being sad sucks, and ending up in Magneto’s Sea Monkey castle.

alanis: Clouds and shadows on Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 24th May 2012.

Between 28 and 36°S, 284°E, on the arc of highlands that surround the southeast Solis Planum. The crater split between the 2nd and 3rd images is Voeykov, about 75 km across, named for climatologist and geographer Alexander Ivanovich Voeykov (1842-1916). The small, deep crater toward bottom left of the 4th image is Los, named for a village of about 400 people in Gävleborg County, Sweden.

Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and 5 monochrome images for animation. Colour is not balanced naturalistically, and the slightly psychedelic colours of the clouds are a result of mismatches between the images where the clouds have moved between exposures.
