Artist William Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in 1995. Over the course of roughly five years he drew these self portriats (starting at 1996) of himself.
Whether the cause for the change in his portraits was from the disease which made him forget what he looked like or due to the loss of artistic skills, this is extremely heartbreaking.
As a Canadian I can 100% confirm
The Thing by John Byrne. 2010.
John wrote this about the drawing above:
Almost as a Zen exercise, I continue my quest to find a really monstrous version of the Thing, without losing his familiar “Thingness”. Thinking here again of how the character looked when he first became “rocky” under the inks of “George Bell” (George Roussos)
AN AWESOME GIRL GROUP RECORDED THE MARY JANES’ SONG FROM ‘EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE’ #2
By Matt D. Wilson
In case you haven’t read it yet (and missed our review), Edge of Spider-Verse #2 by Jason LaTour and Robbi Rodriguez is a fantastic comic. It introduces an alternate-universe Gwen Stacy who become Spider-Woman and is on the run from the cops after being blamed for the death of poor old Peter Parker. It also involves an awesome element: A band called The Mary Janes, in which Gwen is the drummer, Mary Jane Watson is the lead singer/bassist, Glory Grant is the keyboardist, and Betty Brant plays lead guitar.
That’d be cool enough on its own, but a band called Married With Sea Monsters took it a step further. They’ve actually recorded a version of the song from the comic, “Face It Tiger,” and posted it to YouTube.
I am so fuckin into this.

I think all anybody really wants is just enough affection to remind them that they’re important.
Classic first date mistake: not bringing a second space helmet. She’s gonna die, dude!
