Nice art: Storm and Cyclops sitting in a tree…with Greg Pak and Mike McKone

Marvel sent out another one of their teasers earlier today which got people talking a little. While the news that Greg Pak and Mike McKone were taking over writing and drawing duties of ASTONISHING X-MEN with #44 in November was notable enough, the idea that Scott and Ororo — who are in pretty tight relationships with others at this time — might be locking lips is positively TMZ territory! Pak explained:

Frances Bean Cobain sports Al Columbia tattoo in goth-y photos

As many have noted, Frances Bean Cobain, long the innocent ping pong ball in a custody battle with her stability challenged mother, Courtney Love, and other family members, will be 18 in a few days. And to celebrate, she’s been photographed by fashion designer Hedi Slimane, best known for his ultra-slim cut suits. Along the way Cobain shows off a tattoo based on a character by cartoonist Al Columbia (Pim and Francie) — which should come as no surprise, since Cobain’s art alter ego Fiddle Tim lists Columbia as an influence.

These pictures from Slimane have gotten wide play and they are beautiful. If you scroll down the page you see his previous subject was Amy Winehouse. Given Cobain’s genetic influences, (and her swift evolution from relatively healthy looking girl to goth idol) this all looks kinda creepy. But hey, it’s probably all the lighting.
