Okay here’s the dealio. Last Sunday I went for my 2nd day to NYCC in my Hawkeye cosplay. After being stopped by someone in a Hawkeye t-shirt asking “do you know where Matt Fraction’s booth is?” I honestly had no idea he was there because I hadn’t seen him on the website. So obviously I tracked down his booth and waited in line. While doing so my friend and I practiced the sign language we tried to learn the previous night for my cosplay. By chance we met two lovely people behind us a Cap and a Widow. The Captain America told us how he was hard of hearing and that’s why he loved Matt Fraction for writing the first deaf superhero. He so kindly helped me with my sign language and helped me not pass out from hyperventilating. Finally I got to meet possibly the best comic book writer ever. I’m not actually hard of hearing so my signing is terrible and I’m shaking because I was so nervous doing this in front of my personal hero. Anyways I started off signing “Hi my name is Clint” and then “Can I pet your dog?” TBH Matt looked a little confused. Then I asked him “Can you sign my shoes?” That’s when I showed him my converse that I designed after Matt’s work. I think I overwhelmed him a little bit with my intense fangirling but we hugged and I kind of didn’t want to let go because he’s amazing. Then he started signing everything he knew to me and I was sort of crying and laughing. He kept saying “thank you” and I was like “no thank you!” in other words this man is perfect and I am so happy I got to meet my real life hero. 

oh, dude, you, you, you. 

This was one of the greatest things that’s ever happened to me at a con. I met at least a dozen deaf or HoH folks this weekend and they were all so amazing and kind and receptive to the work — but something about this, about you, really got to me. 

thank you so much for coming by. you made my show.

(and i wasn’t confused! i was rusty and out of practice and struggling to remember how to sign, literally, anything. hence my free-associative explosion of toddler signs there at the end)

thank you, thank you, thank you. and you looked amazing. and you signed for me. you are MY personal hero. 

SO THERE

today i color-coded all of HAWKGUY 20 by chronological order so annie and matt could navigate what all happens when why and how easier. then, for kicks, i put it all in chrono-color order, too, at the end, so they could read it linearly, too. this is a screenshot of what that madness looks like.

hawkguy 20 makes hawkguy 6 look like hawkeye 3. you feel me.

Just realized you can draw a straight line from http://mattfraction.com/post/76515275793/cover-version-daredevil-230-and-cutting-techniques to here

Hawkguy day!

• today: H17. Winter Friends. The very last moment of light before the storm. Chris Eliopoulos and Jordie Bellaire and David. Something sweet and silly and light. Because oh fuck —

• next: H18. Friendly Ghost. Kate and the Cat Food Man mystery. It’s been done and gone a while now. Probably out in 30. Annie Wu’s best issue yet. Brutal and smart and gorgeous.

• then: H19. I was up late dotting i’s and crossing t’s with my ASL educator-friend and her deaf daughter last night on this one…

I have sent you a few photos of my Hawkeye cosplay photos over twitter (theta_doctor or Toki) and every time you have given me an excited response. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for that. I'm not exactly small and more than once I've been told I shouldn't cosplay because of my weight. Now when people feel the need to be shitlords I just think to myself, "The person who writes the comic likes my costume, who the fuck are you?" So, really, thank you.

Heyah Toki,

DL this, print it out, and keep it with you to do so as you please.
