Madam Satan, seductive servant of the Devil, is one of the great unsung villains of the Golden Age. Her few appearances in Pep Comics were posted on s_d 1.0, way back when. Here's the first of them, from Issue 16 (June 1941), written by Abner Sundell, with art by Harry Lucey. As with all Pep issues up to #71, this comic is in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

Hi folks!

Still digging through my comics collection, and ran across Manga Vizion #1.



Rumiko Takahashi is best known in the U.S. for her long-running series like Ranma 1/2 and Inu-Yasha, but she has written many short manga stories as well. These have been collected in "Rumic World" volumes. The short stories have some humor in them, but tend to be rather melancholy.

Trigger Warning Abelism, sexual, and romantic acts peformed under false pretenses, and possibly gore (though mild).

When last we left Jessica Drew, she had just been ordered onto a mission to save her lover, and fellow Hydra Agent, Jared, from SHIELD's Monaco base, and assassinate Nick Fury. We join her now already in battle against Fury himself when things start to go against her.

When last we left Jessica Drew she had either accidentally killed her first love after leaving the high evolutionary, or awoken from an 11 year coma, and confronted by General Wyndam. Six of one half a dozen of another I guess. Now it is time to learn how she joined Hydra and found love with her fellow operative Jared.

Hi folks!

This one might have been on the LJ SD community, but I don't think it's been posted since the moves. In 2009, Dark Horse Comics did a number of one-shots with, purportedly, a complete story in each issue; counterprogramming it against whatever big crossovers Marvel and DC were doing at the time. This is one of them. (My copy was a giveaway by a local shop, thus the label.)



Seven pages of twenty-two.

Spoilers for... well, the New52 DCU concept as a whole I guess...

I'm not even going to mention who is going to be showing up in JL3000 #12 in the tags, just to maximise the surprise.

Trust me, it's a weird one )

So while I still plan on sharing some of the spooky stories that appear in the first handful of Spider-Woman's apperances, some questions I got both on and off the site about my last post, have prompted me to do something else I've wanted to for a long time: Compare her original origin to the one crafted by Brian Micheal Bendis. This was a sore spot for me when Bendis re-introduced the character, though there is no denying we wouldn't even have Jessica Drew comics right now if it wasn't for Bendis. I've been wanting to make a show similar to Atop the Fourth Wall, and would love to delve into this in more detail, but right now I present with minimal commentary of part one of Bendis vs Wolfman, and Goodwin...

LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #44 has quite a cover. Batman could grit his teeth like that, but only in the 1990s. This was Steven Grant and Sean McManus's first Batman story.

Hi folks!

As I am going through my Animerica Extra collection (looks like I am going to have to sell a bunch of comics soon), I found the first chapter of the Revolutionary Girl Utena manga by Chiho Saito.



This was a tie in to the Shoujo Kakumei Utena anime series, which had some interesting themes about gender roles, the destructiveness of the virgin/whore ("princess/witch") dichotomy, Thelemic philosophy, and the need to "grow up" to become a complete human being. It also had some trippy visuals, some disturbing sexual moments, and a twist on the standard shounen fighting tournament story arc.

The director of the anime, Kunihiko Ikuhara, wasn't very good at explaining his concepts to Ms. Saito, so the manga (which started a year before the show aired) is very different in tone, and has some characters that don't appear elsewhere (but are referenced in flashbacks.)

Break the shell of the world! )
