Amazing Face-Paintings Transform Models Into The 2D Works Of Famous Artists

"Spider-Verse" is essentially a war story, so there’s no guarantee Gwen Stacy will survive. But if she does, would you be interested in telling more stories with her?
Renzi:Of course! I’d love to do more Gwen stories with Jason and Robbi!
Latour:Absolutely. I’m not involved in the grander strokes of “Spider-Verse,” so I don’t know what the big plans are, but I do know she’ll be making a couple of appearances in Dennis Hopeless’ new “Spider-Woman” book, and I’m thrilled by that. Dennis is going to do fun things with her. If she’s around after all the dust clears, and everyone seems to want it, I think there’s probably more that could be said. So long as it’s natural and in keeping with the tone we’re trying to establish.
Rodriguez:I think we all would, deep down. I think we all have a bit more to say with her, but I guess that’s really up to the readers to make this issue a hit, and the powers that be. I hope we gave the reading audience a Spider-Woman that’s more than just background filler, or just a character whose sole existence was to fill in a copyright hole.
I dunno about you guys but I could read 100 issues of this, easy.
THE TIME IS UPON US
Let’s take a look at what we’ve got here. Not only does she become Spider-Woman, but Pete becomes the Lizard, dies, and then she gets chased by the cops because she’s blamed for his death.
That sounds like one hell of a set up for a series to me!
THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY OF GETTING A SPIDER-GWEN SERIES, IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW WELL THIS ISSUE SELLS! I HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT THIS CAN AND WOULD BE A THING IF IT GETS ENOUGH SUPPORT! THE CREATIVE TEAM IS 100% BEHIND THE IDEA! PLEASE PROMOTE AND SUPPORT THIS ISSUE!

So DiGiorno Pizza tweeted “#WhyIStayed You had pizza.” today. The problem being #WhyIStayed is a hashtag for people to share why they stayed with their domestic abuser.
This is hardly the first time a company has committed a huge social media blunder (remember American Apparel’s “clouds” on the Fourth of July?), but I have to say, DiGiornio is handling it better than any other company I’ve seen. They took the tweet down and have spent all day replying to angry tweets individually.
Even if they had multiple people working on the account to reply (which I’m sure they did), that’s a lot of tweeting. And the message was always variations on the same: we’re sorry, this mistake was preventable, and we screwed up.
That’s powerful. Every company should have a plan in place for if/when they commit an error of this magnitude. And, of course, check WHY a tag is trending before you use it.
It seems like the tweet was only up for about 5 minutes, but they didn’t just delete it and pretend it hadn’t happened, they took responsibility. This is how you apologize.
Good job, DiGiorno Pizza.
Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China.
For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment.
Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles.
From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.
She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.
I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics.
