bluefall: Starbuck looking unimpressed (what the frak)
[personal profile] bluefall posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Four pages from this week's BATMAN: CONFIDENTIAL, and the continuing saga of Batman vs old Blackhawk enemies.




Brief recap: some majorly high-tech plane engines have been stolen by an old enemy of the Blackhawks. Blackhawk's body is also missing. Zinda actually gets a sort of nice moment here when Bruce says "he'll use the engines to make superplanes" and Zinda rattles off all the other high tech stuff he'd also need, proving she does inded know her stuff as a pilot, but it's a bit irrelevant since obviously Bruce has already figured all this out and has them en route to the old Blackhawk Island. (With Zinda flying, and yet she seems surprised when they get there.)

At the island, Bruce tells Zinda to circle the plane. Zinda, for some reason, makes a halfhearted, pretty childish protest, calls him "worse than Huntress" (not Helena, mind) as he jumps down onto the island, and then quietly follows him on her own, hoping he won't be mad.





Jesus, this guy. Look, again, DC, that is not how evil!Zinda worked. She was not Shark's loyal half-mindless devoted lover. She was a conniving badass supervillain who actually took over Shark's operation for herself on at least one occasion. Do some fucking research and stop trying to retcon Zinda into a passive traumatized victim.



Aaaaand that's the full extent of their fight.

Meanwhile Batman finds the supposed corpse of Blackhawk, finds out it's... not Blackhawk, and has a video chat with the bad guy.



.... you stay classy, DC.

Oh, and the bad guy is, predictably, apparently Blackhawk himself. Wait, I'm wrong, the scene just reads that way at first because the writing is shitty and Bruce raids Blackhawk's house and beats up on and extorts information out of his employees as to his whereabouts. Whatever, McGraw. At this point I don't even care.

Is that Greg Land-ish porn-face I see in that one panel. Ugh. Not on Lady Blackhawk, please. No. Just no.

And what's worse a Zinda/BruceBatman team-up could have been a very good. Two more opposing personalities you're not likely to see elsewhere in DC.

The worst part is that in some panels it looks okay and then in the next one, it's serious bleck. Like Land, but not as good at tracing, so the faces look deformed. Especially the mouths, which do not seem to fit with the rest of the face at all.

You know the only research they did was flipping through the issues of BoP where Shark came back. If they even did that. Probably just googled Zinda and King Shark and took what showed up.

She's still pretty cute though.

Because that's what he'd say to this!

To be fair, the writers at DC seem to make just about everyone into an idiot and/or loser whenever they are in the presence of the Bat God.

I liked Bruce a lot more back when he was mortal.

Why did I even expect anything different? *groan*

I noticed that Didio's to-do list in the last page of one of last month's Batman comics included "kill Lady Blackhawk". I wonder what that's about.

kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Power Girl's Cat)
From: [personal profile] kingrockwell
Sigh...

And the only reason I even bothered with this arc was because she was in it. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find some better way to spend the money that would've gone to this series next month (though Sam Kieth's on story and art in January! so excited!)

Also this art is beyond awful. I should've seen that coming from that story Marz did in the Infinite Christmas Special.

oh, and i don't think Blackhawk was supposed to be the villain, he was just watching from the sidelines for some reason? it look like they're till teaming Bats up with a hawk, just not the one we actually bought the title for :(
