Strong Female Leads:

Almost Wednesday and I'm pulling on my fanboy boots. Snug black bastards, but they really offset my blinding white legs. Cowl completes the ensemble.

Goddamn it. Warren Ellis = bloody genius. Just when you think you've glimpsed it all, a quick combination and your eyes are again bleeding tears. Lately he's been pumping out the strong female leads. Mary Raven is just smokin', but take a sip of his steampunk character, Anna Mercury. Kind of a superhero Lara Croft crossed with The Shadow. Plenty of rooftop jumping, rayguns, and vamping badass. And quite the vocabulary. Ah, man, cue the old school LL Cool J...Bigger and Deffer. I need love.
