OK, I feel kind of like this guy, lumbering out of Hades and asking the wrong person for "story time." But I have this thing on my mind.

(Not the SOPA thing, though yeah, take Danielle's advice and write your Congressmen. Heck, write other people's Congressmen.)

I know one or two pretty good writers on my flist, and there are certainly some good fan artists online.

And I think, why do you tie yourself to fan works? You don't own it; you don't control it; you don't get any royalties, ever--is it just a cheap way to get attention? In fact, you put all these disclaimers on your work, because it's not even public domain--the trademarks belong to someone else. Is it worth it?

I hear bluefall's pretty upset about what DC did to Birds of Prey. But I remember reading some of her Harrierverse stuff and thinking it was pretty cool.

Why not, for example, file off the bits of the Harrierverse that identify it as made of DC trademarks, and publish it as your own thing? You could do it as a webcomic if you found a willing artist.

There are so many concepts that want love, and we know what they are:

That heroic vigilante/detective single father guy, the marksman.
The slightly goofy couple who have fun chasing mysteries (maybe one of them has powers).
The broken bird who sends her agents into dangerous situations while she uses her hacking skills to be as absurdly prepared as possible.
The spooky young woman for whom violence is mother tongue, chasing justice and craving mercy.
et cetera.

Waiting and whining for DC (or whomever) to do these is pretty much useless. They're not bringing back these things, nor things like them, and they don't care.

But if it's yours, you can do what you want, and DC can't pull it out from under you, nor "ruin" it by going in a different direction.

Heck, you could leave the trademarks in the public domain, or copyleft it, if that's your thing.

Think about it.

So in the last issue of Birds of Prey, Batgirl joined the group, they located their cleaner boys, and before they knew it, they found themselves on the streets with Batgirl missing from the group.

...or was she really there to begin with? Surely Poison Ivy would remember a foe she's fought! And speaking of Ivy...what other deck of cards is she playing?

4 pages of 'what the fuck did I just read?' D: )

In Generation Hope #14, Hope and the Lights found a mind-wiped (by Emma) Sebastian Shaw in Pakistan and brought him to Utopia.

He's welcomed with open arms, obviously.

two spoilery pages from Gen Hope #15 )

Hope and Quentin Quire should hang out and hook up imho. Hot couple, Just Jared Jr material.

Other stuff is happening to the Lights that don't matter in this issue as well, btw.

Now, you know me, I like a nice Robin in peril shot ("No?" "Really?" "YOU Icon_UK? I hear the surprised gasps from around the interwebs of s_d) so this cover appealed to me, so I idly picked a copy up... After all, last issue saw Robin being licked by trolls, who knows where this one could lead...



Even I never saw THIS one coming - Spoilers beneath )

In this issue, we have:

1. Selina going back to making cat references.
2. Preferring to deal with the pains of childbirth over dislocating her shoulder.
3. Catwoman sucking hard at the 'being a criminal' lifestyle.
4. Aeka interpreting all of this as foreshadowing a future encounter with Selina Jr.

4 Pages worth of easter eggs that make Aeka smile :} )

Ok, I'm keeping this on a timely schedule. I'd hoped to have the last two posts ready today as the ending allows me to make a parable quite easily with SOPA and censorship, but that will have to wait.



Part 1
Part 2

We ended the last chapter with the young man having joined the army to fight in the first world war. There is quite a bit of politics and history in the beginning of this chapter, but I've opted to focus on the second more graphical part of this small chapter here, so we'll be skipping that(it would just be a huge text dump to be honest as I'm not such a good teller when it comes to the history of my country).

I should note that this is my favourite chapter both due to the subject matter of it as well as the art which complements the concept and the terror of war in a way which I haven't seen that many books do as perfectly. The following pages are just that, some of my favourite of the whole book and believe me, it pained me to reduce them to just 4.

Join me beyond the cut... and lets hope this doesn't end up lost and unloved in the Wednesday rush )
