kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Babs Gordon)

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. :(

I am afraid I won't be able to take you up on that. I enjoy your work, generally, but even if this is a clever storytelling device wherein we only think you're playing into a really common and hurtful bit of literary cliché, I'm not engaged enough to find out.

This scene doesn't leave me feeling intrigued or even angry; instead I am cynical and a little hurt, and so I think it would probably be best if I skipped the next few issues, meaningful fallout or no.

I am sure you don't mean to hurt anyone with this. I really believe you only want to tell a good story. But you have to understand how wearing it gets to see this over and over and over again, only to hear the same justification every time. "It's meaningful this time." "Wait and see." I always do, and it never really pays off in a satisfying way. Fool me once, etc. - I keep getting burned, and eventually I have to stop blaming the stove and start retraining my hand.
