[personal profile] kingrockwell posting in [community profile] scans_daily

So, [personal profile] sailorlibra requested some Sasha Bordeaux a while back, and I've finally gotten off of my lazy ass to do something about it. The way I see it, I've got about four posts worth of material from Rucka's first run on Detective Comics without derailing any future posts I have planned, which will have the added benefit of serving as a springboard for a future series of posts from Checkmate, as requested by [personal profile] ghosty732.

But enough of that, to the comics! And as I figure, there's no better place to begin then, well, the beginning. So, we're looking at seven pages from 'Tec #751, and a little bit from #752.

A bit of background context, during these two issues, the GCPD are trying to resolve the whole Ivy-in-Robinson-Park thing left over from NML. We're worrying about more important things here, though, so let's cut to Wayne Enterprises.

(as an aside, i just want to say that even though Shawn Martinbrough's art can be iffy at times, the two-tone colors 'Tec had between NML and BW: Murderer made a really lovely comic)

Another thing worth discussing is post-NML Bruce Wayne, who is obviously a big part of this story. He's a bit oafish, maybe more than usual, but a lot of times, especially when you're around him as often as Sasha will be, that comes off as being as much an act as it really is, especially with the business-savvy he displays at times. Also, I can't see how anyone can think he's being so insufferable on accident (which endears him to me a lot, actually).

Obviously, he didn't go to the washroom, and you can read more about what happens when he goes to help the situation in Robinson Park over is this post. Now, because of that post, I don't have too many pages left from 752, but I can make it just under the wire with one and a third.

Realizing Bruce had ditched her, Sasha looks for him around the building. The security guards aren't much help.

But having no luck at Wayne Enterprises, she finds her way to the manor, where we pick up the next morning.


And so begin a beautif-- uh, destru-- hmm, confli-- well, some kind of relationship.

Next time, Jim Gordon's retirement party! Featuring Sasha getting suspicious, my favorite Two-Face seen ever, and me pulling my hair out trying to cut it all down to page limits!

also, i think this is my first full post since the move
(Animal Man wasn't full, and Scans De Yada doesn't count since there weren't enough comics; By the way, if you're planning to contribute, I'm still waiting on a number of submissions!)
