Theodor Kordt

Did you know? There was a real-life Ted Kord(t), and he was a 1930s German diplomat who plotted secretly against the Nazi regime, coming within a hair’s breadth of assassinating Hitler. 

Thanks, presumably, to Booster’s time machine.

Chapter cover idea for the story I’m working on. Too static for my liking but it’s a start.

Ahh I love it already!

Thank you! I feared I’d got completely out of touch with subject matter that wasn’t all blue and black and sharp neon lights, but this is helping me settle back into more Real World stuff nicely. The story is here and I’m set on adding roughly 2K each week (Sundays), which is strangely going better than my additional aim of drawing a header image for each section of the text. I’m using photos and graphics as placeholders but I gotta work on drawings proper and deal with my insecurity. I’ll conquer this!

Just seen the New York Times documentary ‘Page One’, and now Bruce Headlam is kind of my head-canon Ted Kord.

The Secret Histories Project: SHP Special Edition: Why Do We Need Secret Histories?

secrethistoriesproject:

 it seems obvious to me that Mr Gove really didn’t understand, or didn’t care, what it means to have a figure like Seacole on the curriculum. When the vast bulk of the history that you study in school does feature people who look a lot like you and think a lot like you, I wonder whether it’s possible to understand the sheer desperate hunger that you can feel, that sense of indescribable glee when you finally sit down in a lecture or turn a page in a history book and see someone who reminds you of yourself.
