Oh, man! Tattoos are so personal, I don’t know if I can really answer this. Do you find one form particularly meaningful or aesthetically pleasing? Go with whatever design you will still love when you’re 87. That’s all the advice I really have, sorry - but post a picture when you get it done!
Billy has the prettiest legs ever! That was my favorite part in creating this piece. Second to that is the cloak. Gwad, I love drawing drapery
[Pretty cool! This reminds me of the leg-worshipping that we did a while back, hehe. Thanks for marking it as a spoiler! — JP]
Oh, art thou a Young Avengers neophyte?! Welcome to the fold, good sir! Feast on the cookies! :D
Well, I’ll be cryptic on the technical issue about your question. It’s just interesting how you worded it. You said that Wiccan was “somewhat not there.” The technicality lies in your asking about Wiccan and not Billy. /end cryptic reply ; )
Hey, connorlukeissac! You’re referring to Avengers: The Children’s Crusade - Young Avengers #1, correct? Yes, I bought and read it yesterday!
I’d love to tell you what happens, but I’d rather not spoil it, hehe. [You have no idea how much of my willpower it’s taking to keep my mouth shut.]
All I can say is that reading it isn’t essential to the whole story of The Children’s Crusade, but there are precious nuggets in there for fans of the Young Avengers.
Cryptic postscript: Your question has some technicalities that I am so tempted to address. [I am such a tease.]
Personally, I was amused by that bit. I see where you’re coming from, and I did get annoyed at one point too, for the same reasons. But then I saw where Teddy was coming from.
Teddy did not want Billy to go at this alone, since the latter could end up getting killed. He was afraid of losing Billy, as Teddy always is. So it’s probably his way of saying, “Billy pulled this really stupid stunt and I’m really scared that I won’t be able to see him alive again.” It’s all his fear and frustration condensed into those two words. Now, he loves Billy [“boyfriend”], but he doesn’t approve of Billy’s method [“idiot”]. But I’m pretty sure he’s supportive of Billy’s intentions and feeling regarding the Scarlet Witch.
That’s what I think. [To FYWiccan’s co-mods, feel free to chime in with your thoughts!]
Allan Heinberg tweeted me! And at that moment, words failed me.
When Mr. Heinberg tweeted about the lettered preview of the upcoming one-shot Avengers: The Children’s Crusade - Young Avengers, which comes out on March 16, 2011, I commented on Billy’s conspicuous absence [pictured above]. I actually wasn’t expecting a reply since it was really more of a rhetorical question, but lo and behold, Mr. Allan Heinberg tweets me back [also pictured above]!!! And, at that instant, I think I had, like, ten geekgasms almost all at once!
He doesn’t really say anything earth-shattering, but the fact that he tweeted back just made me do cartwheels in my head.
I think I want to relish the fact that the first “celeb” that ever tweeted me just happened to be the creator of the Young Avengers.
That is all. Just thought I’d share this with people who can actually understand what I’m going gaga over.
