Natasha and Bucky Comics Masterpost

So with Winter Soldier out now, I know you’re all dying to read more about Bucky and Natasha, whether as a couple or individually!  So, since I haven’t seen one of these with download links yet, I’ve put together a reading order + downloads.

This is a combination of solo stories and team-ups with each other.  It isn’t every appearance of theirs together, but they’re the ones that I consider important.  (If you have any suggestions, however, I’m totally up for editing.)

I tried to break it up by ROUGH chronology, both by keeping important events together because I really don’t like hopping from series to series, but also breaking them up after significant chunks to avoid getting worn out on one arc (hence the Deadly Origin between Cap v4 and Reborn).

Here is the folder with everything

Here are the specific download links.  Message me if any of them are broken:

Black Widow V1

Black Widow V2

Black Widow V3

Captain America V5 (Bonus: Winter Soldier - Winter Kills.  Takes place between issues 24 and 25)

(Note: Bucky joins the New Avengers around Secret Invasion.  I wouldn’t consider it necessary reading, because it’s a team book and not individual, but I have his issues here.  Issue 47 of NA comes out concurrently with issue 44 of Cap v5 I believe)

Black Widow: Deadly Origin

Captain America: Reborn and Who Will Wield the Shield

Captain America: Renumbered (+ Captain America and Bucky)

Black Widow V4

Widowmaker (see note in folder; prequel is in the big folder)

Fear Itself 3-4, 7.1 (the rest of it isn’t worth it.  I promise. it just. isn’t.)

Winter Soldier

Bucky is currently in two ongoings (All-New Invaders and another run of Winter Soldier that I actually think might be a limited series) and Natasha is in one (Black Widow), which you should check out.  I don’t have downloads for those, but they’re not very far, so you can probably grab them at the comic shop or on comixology.

As always, if you like the comics, buy them!

YOU ARE A GIFT OH MY GOD

Is it too soon to say your work is a gift to mankind?

The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Earth’s upper atmosphere—below freezing, nearly without oxygen, flooded by UV radiation—is no place to live. But last winter, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that billions of bacteria actually thrive up there.

Expecting only a smattering of microorganisms, the researchers flew six miles above Earth’s surface in a NASA jet plane. There, they pumped outside air through a filter to collect particles.

Back on the ground, they tallied the organisms, and the count was staggering: 20 percent of what they had assumed to be just dust or other particles was alive. Earth, it seems, is surrounded by a bubble of bacteria.
Now what? Read the whole story over at PopSci…

Life, man.
Life, everywhere.

sailawaykid asked: I just wanted to say thank you. I only discovered your work a few years ago. But in that short time, interacting with you through your comics and outside of them, you've given me the confidence to use my natural voice in my writing -- because YOU aren't afraid to use your own unique voice. And the result is so lovely. As a queer, black writer, I used to feel that if I didn't blend in, I would never be heard. But what I found was that when I tried to blend in, I simply wasn't saying anything.

gailsimone:

Well, first, wow, thank you for that lovely sentiment, but it sounds like you were already on that path to speaking with your true self. The first step in learning what to do right is acknowledging that feeling when you are doing it wrong. Your gut will let you know when you are doing something that doesn’t feel right, doesn’t feel honest.

I have had many, many friends tell me they have tried to write to the ‘house style’ of major companies and that that meant suppressing their own voices and creativity.  But I really believe the only answer for us as creators and the industry as a whole is to fight that impulse and write with what souls we have been given as best we can.

There will always be resistance. But think of all the people out there who want and NEED to read of other voices and experiences.  I know you can do this. I will be rooting for you!

Keep us informed of your progress, okay?  There are a lot of people who want to see you succeed and I am one of them!

Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?

This is false

As far as I can tell, it seems that fliers WERE handed out, but not in any official capacity and it’s unclear as to what the aim of the people handing them out were.  
It’s still creepy and drawing on antisemitic sentiment, but Jewish people are not actually being targeted by the government in the Ukraine.
In other news: people are terrible.

If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.
(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.
