Part of what the Batman run has been is recapitulating the years of Batman and the different ways that Batman’s been dealt with. So I wanted to deal with that modern Batman that has started to get bleak again. The stuff that Scott [Snyder] is doing, that John Layman is doing, everyone is starting to get bleak again. You cannot bring Batman into the light, is basically what I’ve learned. So we wanted to acknowledge that in this last issue – it’s quite nightmarish in a way.
Grant Morrison talking about Batman Inc #13 (out July 31st)
Remember everyone, GRIMDARK=COOL
"You cannot bring Batman into the light"
UGH. DC Comics, please stop this. Not everything needs to be dark. You can actually have fun with the Bats. It is not a contradiction.
DID THEY FORGET BATMAN WAS IN FUCKING JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL AND IT WAS AMAZING
Nobody liked Brave and the Bold, right?
Bleeding Cool is reporting that Joshua Hale Fialkov walked off the Lantern books because of demands he kill a character.
Can you guess who?
But guys, they have another non-white Green Lantern now! Why would they go above the quota????
I feel like my warrior princesses should look like they are both warriors and princesses and in Starfire’s case; are from space.
Maybe I’m just trying to fill the Barda shaped hole in my continuity.
This a more detailed and slightly updated version of the Starfire redesign I did recently that was featured over on Project Rooftop.
Kind of a weird thing but the first thing that caught my eye and that I LOVE is her stomach: it folds and ripples like a real woman’s, instead of bending smoothly like paper like I see too often.
I love the heft and feel of her body in this picture: She feels substantial and like she can move planets and wreck stuff.
I actually thought this was Maxima. Take note Lobdell and Rocafort oh and while I’m at it (Lobdell you’re a douche for what you’ve done to her)
I love that the light in her eyes is actually bouncing off the bridge of her nose and cheekbones - which is what would really happen if her eyes actually glowed and I’ve never seen an artist depict that.
Kory is a *strong* individual. She has muscles and weight. She is tall. Drawing her as a sprite when she’s an adult doesn’t make any sense.
I always thought it would make more sense if she was built more like Barda or Knockout.
This is awesome
That is, uh, some crossover, Tumblr.
fandom secret, I haven’t seen Firefly and only saw Serenity once and don’t remember much of it, but this song is my fandom battle hymn because no matter how much something you love gets screwed over, they can never retcon your heart. you still watched the show (or the seasons that were good), you still read the comics (or the series that were good). (equally important edit…s: and there can be bad people in your fandom, but that doesn’t make all of you bad people. and it’s not about refusal to criticize or refusal to change, it’s about how you can still criticize or look back and still be a fan)
so I will always love my back issues where my legacy heroes and their growth and their relationships with those before them and around them still exist as I know them, and nothing DC does can ever truly take that away, not Jaime Reyes’ close relationship with his family and friends and Khaji Da and with the people who knew and loved the Blue Beetles before him, not Booster Gold growing as a person from meeting friends and losing friends and meeting family he hasn’t met yet, not Amanda Waller being a fearless fat HBIC, not Oracle kicking ass at crimefighting with her mind (and eskrima) instead of her legs, not Renee Montoya or Crispus Allen
and that’s why I don’t worry about continuity anymore, and I’ll just take the new Star Wars movies as they come, because my favorite Star Wars character will always be Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon, Supreme Commander of the Imperial Remnant who signed a treaty for peace with the New Republic and abolished slavery within the Empire and commanded a battle from a fuckin’ bacta tank and was killed for opposing the reign of a Sith and charmed people and learned from things and gardened and slept around and lost a son and kept losing commanders and the Empire changed around him until he was the one making the changes
even if not all of those things happened or none of them did or the characters never happened (and of course, they never really did)
it all happened to me, once upon a time
(the text in the speech bubble says: “I basically spend like all day looking at lolcats on facebook, I’m such a huge nerd!)
im finally getting around to catching up on my favorite comics! but guess what’s waiting for me on the back cover. yes thats really what i wanted to find at the end of my jewish lesbian superhero comic guest starring wonder woman. thanks for reminding me how you really feel DC
go fuck yourself DC
ha ha these notes
“it’s not DC’s fault you guys, CollegeHumor must have broken into their offices and put it there!”
HAHAHAHAHA oh all the reasons I haven’t bought comic books in years right here.
And I keep being reminded why I refuse to buy anything from DC.
