I've posted some model sheets from time to time, and found these in an old folder, so though it might be fun to share...

These are model sheets from the 1970's series, showing our happy little bird boy in all his various glories.

First, that million dollar smile...

As much as I dislike the current status quo, I have to give Joey Q credit--the target audience, young kids, love it. In the end, that's only a good thing. For an example, check out this video.

Someone posted about one of Shimura's other series, Hourou Musuko (Transient Son or Wandering Son), a few months ago. Sweet Blue Flowers starts off with an older crowd. On the surface, it may look like just another "childhood friends are reunited" story, but it's so much more. It's about sexuality and friendship and crushes and growing up. It has subtlety and realism.

IGN has posted the first part one of November's Blackest Night solicitations (they decided to hold back on Blackest Night itself and the GL titles). Three of the solicitations under the cut.

Four scans from The Marvels Project #1, by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting, wherein we see the beginnings of the Marvel Universe.

Time once again for you to pester your fellow SDers with requests.

Once a month we will have a requests post where members can ask for certain scans to be posted. Other members seeking inspiration can look through the requests and fulfill someone's dream. Posting a request is no guarantee of its being filled, but request posts will be archived so that members can look through comments from previous months and answer them if they so desire.

The most recent request post will be linked to in the community's profile.

So Scans Daily, what do you want?

Two requests for the price of one, a few pages from Megatron: Origins #2, including the scene that he takes his helmet off.
As a little bit of background, he was part of a miner riot in the previous issue and went underground.  Now he's part of an arena-fighting league that's very Roman.

Or, really, a corollary to part two, because I'm an idjit and had somehow totally forgotten about this.

So, when I said that there were no major stalkery incidents between David Cannon and Janet van Dyne between the times of Marvel Features and issue 71 of Avengers Volume Three, I was totally neglecting an important one. Namely, Cannon's kidnapping attempt after Jan's divorce from Hank and Hank's later imprisonment.

Two pages and two panels from Avengers #222.

Dick Grayson really is astounding, the man for all seasons (and fetishes).

He's appealing to women and men, and the hetero and homo flavours of both. He looks great in heroic poses and adorable when tied up. And yet, there's been one little area, just one, quite popular amongst certain folk in this community, where he's never had a chance to shine... that's about to change...

I stumbled on this while preparing the "When Alan Moore was crap" entries. There was a time when Rob Liefeld's Extreme Studios was putting profiles of its talent in the Extreme comics. The person in the spotlight would list likes, dislikes, influences, etc. One time, the person chosen for this honor who a young up-and-comer named Pat Lee.

I know the guy has his fans here, especially among the Transformers fans, so I thought some of you folks might enjoy this.

Someone requested scenes of Jim Gordon interacting with heroes other than Batman and Robin. I don't know if Alfred counts as a "hero", but here's a cute story from 1977. It's only 8 pages, so unfortunately I can only show you small bits of it.

Always a good idea to see what was going on in the Okefenokee Swamp back in 1951.

Pogo himself in not in this particular sequence, nor Albert. The strip had a huge cast that wandered in and out. I don't know another cartoonist who can make a character combine animal and human characteristics so seamlessly and so naturally as Walt Kelly. The facial expressions are priceless, and nearly every panel has a little gem. The mouse casually lighting his match against the panel border, or Miz Beaver figuring the tiger is an escaped convict in a prison outfit. The problem with POGO is not in finding a good sequence to post, but avoiding the temptation to put up huge lengthy chunks at a time.

First of all, I want to go ahead and thank [ profile] jkcarrier and [ profile] gargoylekitty for the posts they made, I look forward to reading them!
Additionally, after going through my pulls today, I found another instance of Jim Gordon interacting with the DCU at large!

If you've got any other Jim + non-Batman/Robin scenes, feel free to post 'em!
