They came to us thousands of years ago. Gods. Aliens. Refugees of a fallen civilization.

For centuries they ruled, intermingling with humanity. Creating generation after generation of daemons, faeries, and demigods.

The first generation of heroes and villains.

And then one day, something happened. Something terrible followed our rulers from their lost home world.

The Gods fell, defending the Earth. Their empire crumbled, and only the most remote spark of their seed survived within our species.

And they never told us what it was they were running from.

They never told us what it was that could frighten a god.

Baby Giraffe's First Moments

In full view of zoo visitors, Myeisha the Giraffe delivered a baby at Australia’s Monarto Zoo on April 19.

This calf is Myeisha’s fourth and is the first giraffe born at Monarto Zoo in eight years.

Giraffe keeper Vaughan Wilson said the not-so-little bundle of joy was thriving and settling in well with the rest of the herd in the waterhole habitat. Baby Giraffes typically weigh 100-150 pounds at birth and stand about six feet tall.

As you can see in the video, female Giraffes give birth standing up. The six-foot drop to the ground stimulates the newborn’s breathing and breaks the umbilical cord.
 
“The birth went really well and shortly after being born, the little one was already on its feet getting used to its long legs,” Vaughan said. “It’s feeding really well and the other females who live in the waterhole habitat are fascinated by the new arrival.”
 
“It’s a bit like a giraffe maternity ward at Monarto Zoo at the moment, with our giraffe Kinky also expected to give birth any day now, and several more of our females expecting in the coming months," Vaughan said.
 
Giraffes are classified as Vulnerable to Extinction in the wild, so the calf is an important contribution to the zoo breeding program.  Zoos around the world are working to secure the future of the world’s tallest animal, which is facing an uncertain future in the wild.
 
Habitat loss, poaching, and civil unrest has seen giraffe numbers plummet from around 155,000 in 1985 to just 97,000 in 2015, which equates to a decline of almost 40 per cent over three giraffe generations. This devastating decline led to the Giraffe’s reclassification as Vulnerable to Extinction last year by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

"I am always hesitant to lean into Superman too soon – in my mind, and I say it all the time, if Kal-El never landed on Earth, Kara would STILL become Supergirl. She would still learn from her experience coming to Earth and want to pay that forward on her own grand scale. So I want that to be more clear than ever." - Steve Orlando

Keeping up with the Jones part 1

Post-Secret Wars, my Marvel list has dropped down to Power man and Iron Fist (Cancelled), Hulk, Thor, Gwenpool and Hawkeye. They're all really good books, offering a different take on life in the Marvel world, and with strong authorial voices. New York based Private Investigator Jessica Jones has dropped by on LA based Private Investigator (but don't ask to see her licence) Kate Bishop.

Jess is on a case that links up with a skeevy guy Kate has been keeping tabs on. The trail takes them to a party where getting in isn't as easy as you might want.
Getting in to parties the Kate Bishop Way )
If, like Kate and Jessica, you think that shooting arrows would solve problems, but, unlike Kate and Jessica, you're in Great Britain and have nothing to do from the 16th to 18th of June, why not take part in Archery Big Weekend? There is almost certainly a club nearby that will be putting on a fun event for beginners.
