kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Babs Gordon)

I am so close to done with all this bullshit.

No icon ragey enough. This one feels cold and bitter, which is appropriate enough.

A little under two pages from Birds of Prey #2.





With all the fail going 'round at DC lately, the last thing I needed this week was Gail Simone killing gays (even if he pulled the trigger himself). I don't even know anymore.

This shit better be a fake-out because I'm out of patience for Brightest Day and DC in general. I'm gonna go drown my sorrows in Pet Avengers. :(

Can I get a scan of Rage Cat? Because, really, that's how I feel.

Yeah. :-/

And I think the White Canary is Cass. :-(

"Successfully rehabilitated supercriminal" seems to be dirty words with DC editorial these days. They either end up relapsed or dead, because destiny or some other BS.

The thing that annoys me the most about this is how much of that relationship never got explored on-screen. I was always waiting for Gail to do something with it beyond Creote being in unrequited love with the (presumably) straight guy, but this is the first indication we've seen since BoP v.1 that they were even working together again.

I'm really hoping there is some kind of twist here, because, if not, this is really very disappointing on all counts.

It was quite a shock to see it in the story, I'm hoping it's not just left like this but I loved the issue otherwise. Hopefully Brightest Day which ironically has lots more death that usual will bring them back by the end.

I'm surprised that he's considered rehabilitated. Babs seemed to think he was a failed experiment back in v.1, and the last time he had a speaking part, he was trying to steal the "Get out of Hell free" card with about a hundred other D-listers who were willing to use lethal force to get it.

If Harvey FREAKIN' Dent can't escape his ETERNAL CURSE no matter what he does, don't think ol' Ed Nygma can get away.

Yeah, character development is for fans, destiny on freakin' rails is for editorial.

No, sorry. The death/gore/angst combination stopped working on me after the Merry Marvel Mutant Massacre (TM). These days the only reaction it gets is, "You could have come up with something I haven't already seen worked into the ground."

~A wall, as usual, explodes inwards~

"OKAY, SO HULK BRING DICTIONARY THIS TIME."

~Hulk slips on a pair of half moon spectacles~

"NO WHERE IN WEBSTER HERE DOES BRIGHTEST, OR TO LESSER EXTENT DAY, SAY EITHER WORD INVOLVING STRANGE SEMI RACISM, EXTREME VIOLENCE, OR NOW A GAY MAN KILLING HIMSELF ON WEBCAM FOR ORACLE BECAUSE HIS LOVER IS DEAD. HULK THINK DICTIONARY.COM NOT HAVE THAT EITHER"

"SEE HULK NOT JUMP FULL ON GAIL HERE. GAIL GOOD WRITER, THIS JUST NEXT SYMPTOM OF FUCKING INSANITY. YOU CAN NOT NAME COMIC BRIGHTEST DAY THEN PULL OUT BIG BOOK GORE AND DEATH AND ACT SURPRISED WHEN PEOPLE ACT WEIRDED OUT."

"IT LIKE IF HULK MADE MOVIE CALLED "ANNABELL LEE GOES TO THE CIRCUS" AND ENTIRE COMICS WAS MAN BEING SLICED OPEN IN GRAPHIC DETAIL. SHIT GUYS, WHY MAD? DON'T JUDGE BOOK BY COVER! MAYBE YOU ENJOY NEXT MOVIE BETTER, IT CALLED "HENRY AND THE FIRETRUCK", THE HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHY IS GREAT IN THAT!"

"NOW HULK CAN NOT JUMP FULLY IN HERE CAUSE HULK NOT KNOW EITHER AN HERE BUT LET JUST JUMP HERE FROM STANDPOINT OF NEWBIE. SO MAN, INSTEAD OF YOU KNOW, CALLING FOR HELP INSTEAD CALLS ORACLE TO BROADCAST SUICIDE FOR SOLE PURPOSE OF GUILT. REALLY?

"ALSO HULK NOTICE BABS FACE IN FINAL PANEL MORE DISGUSTED THAN SHOCKED. IT LOOK LIKE SHE SEE GOETSE, NOT SUICIDE OF BROKEN HEARTED MAN"

"HULK NOT KNOW ANYMORE DC. IT SAY A LOT WHEN FINAL CRISIS, EVEN IF IT INSANE COMIC WRITTEN LIKE FIRST GRADE PHILOSOPHY STUDENT JACK OFF ON PAGE, MORE TRIUMPHANT THAN SOMETHING CALLED "BRIGHTEST DAY"

I understand and agree with what you are saying in this thread.

This time, I have to let the story stand on its own. I think
it's meaningful.

Fallout next issue, I promise.

Lucky thing the computer, webcam and internet connection managed to survive in that bare, slumlike room that just contained a pitched battle, eh? What are the odds?

I suppose he could have gone out and got all that stuff afterwards, but that'd just make things even weirder, don't you think?

Seems to be?

Jericho, Cassandra, Ravager and Alexander Luthor were all damned by their blood. Savant probably got off easy.

Hm. I wonder where Oracle gets her nails done. I suppose she's gotten used to typing with such long finger nails, but whenever my nails need clipping I keep hitting capslock and shift at the same time.

Okay, I'm imagining the best reaction shot ever from the cashier.

Gail Simone, what is this even.

I am so done with DC right now. It was nice while it lasted. Going back to just Marvel now.

Roy Harper's there looking after his kid, probably unaware of the defective clone running around back home.

~slides webcam across register~

"Ugh what a day. Six hours and no break man"

~looks over at Creote, blood matting his hear and hands~

"Have...have you lost everyone you ever loved before?"

"........"
