GLITTERBOMB TP VOL 01 RED CARPET (MR)  IMAGE COMICS

(W) Jim Zub (A) Djibril Morissette-Phan, K. Michael Russell

The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can’t toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them biting back…
Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to exact revenge on the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture that’s led her astray.
Fan-favorite JIM ZUB (WAYWARD, Thunderbolts) and newcomer DJIBRIL MORISSETTE-PHAN (The Ultimates, All-New Wolverine) tear into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB, a dramatic horror story about fame and failure.
Collects GLITTERBOMB #1-4.

He is also one of the most influential creators in the industry!

Jillian Kirby, Jack’s grandaughter, founded KIRBY4HEROES to honor the legacy of Jack “King” Kirby in a manner that he would have been proud of. This was also a way for Jillian to meaningfully connect with her grandfather, who died the year before she was born.
We agree with Jillian that her grandfather would have been among the first to champion this cause, because a charity that helps others in the comic book community and gives aid to those in need exemplifies the devotion he always had for his fellow man.

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up

  • Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
  • Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
  • Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
    acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
  • You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
  • Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
  • Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
  • Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
