365 Days of Defiance, Day 210: Oh the humanitree

I try not to normally reprint...(counting carefully)...a full four pages from a single comic book in this feature, but the build-up and the pay-off are just so good I couldn't edit it down without feeling like I was doing injustice to the pacing. Okay, Star-Lord is facing off against ultravillain and glamour ab model Black Swan, armed with nothing more than his wits, his sarcasm, that a toothpick?

365 Days of Defiance, Day 205: And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
