WHEN PEOPLE SAY DUMB SHIT AND I’M JUST LIKE KDHDSAK YOU CLEARLY DIDN’T EVEN SEE BATTLESTAR GALACTICA SO DON’T TALK ABOUT MY STARBUCK
[note - there’s only one line about starbuck in here and it’s a dumb article but it pissed me off so here, tumblr, share in my frowning]
Flat Top, you got a need for speed, do ya? Just can’t wait to get back to the Big G to the lovin’ embrace of your fellow pilots? Or maybe you have a hot date with your right hand. …Tell you what, Flat Top - you come in too hot today, you may have to start using your left.
It was apparent right from the start of this panel that Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff were more than just a pair of coworkers that worked on a popular sci-fi televisions series. They stepped out on stage, all smiles, and soon began recounting a raucous game of hide-and-seek they’d had the night before (Tricia even mimed the position she’d held to fit under a sink and win the game). Their outward demeanor though – all grins and giggles – didn’t tell the whole story. The camera lens picked something else up: Even when they weren’t looking at each other, their facial expressions often mirrored one another – a sign of a deep empathy that only comes from long stretches of time together – far more than they would have had on set.

I am just so FLOORED by J.H Williams’ work on Batwoman. So much work had to have gone into these incredibly detailed two-page spreads and it’s so beautiful. This was obviously such a labor of love for him and Blackman. Idk, if I were DC editorial, I would have done basically anything to keep these two happy!
