  1. Learning that the new Pirates movie was based on a Powers book has actually made me way more psyched to see it. Curse you, empty wallet!

  2. “Weakling, Defend Yourself!” is hilarious!

  3. Yes, totally hilarious, and I love the array of pretty female steampunk writers followed by a picture of Mayer, and Sykes going, “one of these things is not like the other” ;)
