For all the kind words following my ascension to Mod-hood.

My tendency towards the... Robin-centric end of the comic book spectrum was noted more than once in those accolades... and who am I to buck a trend?

This is a longer than usual post as it's a three part story, and I'm never sure about posting three parters; do I do one chapter at a time and probably forget to go back and do at least one chapter... or do I post it all in one go and risk boring you all. Good news, I've gone for risking boring you rigid! :)

This also counts as another entry in my painfully sporadic "The Original Origin of the original non-original Robin" posts, detailing the introduction and career of Jason Todd 1.0!




This story is full of drama, exotic locations and Vicki Vale being more awesome than usual... )

Now, I did consider posting a couple of pages of Batman inc. to empahsis just how much I didn't enjoy it (Especially the Bruce/Damian interactions), but as I've said before, I don't want to be that sort of a person on s_d (though I'll particiapte in such debates) so it's time for another "Accentuate the positive" posting...

And this is something I promised [personal profile] thehefner I would dig out ages and ages ago.



So, from 1982, comes....

The wonderfully titled 'The Diabolical Doctor Death' )

Yes, believe it or not I do have something to add to "Cute Romance Week"... and not a rope, shackle, or piece of duct tape in sight... honest! :)

These two instances both refer to Jason 1.0, the circus performer, not the street-punk revamp.

This first one is from 1983's "New Teen Titans #33"

Jay meets someone for the first time )

And from Detective Comics 561 in 1986 comes a 15-page story from Doug Moench and Gene Colan which has been messy to cut down because it covers two interesting plot strands in one story and I'd love to showcase both; Bruce and Jason discuss drug use, and Jason gets a girlfriend. I veer more towards the latter than the former given the theme, but I thought it worth mentioning the other too...

And then there was Rena... )

Oh, and some last minute theme approriate Valentine cards perhaps? )

As promised, this is the second mega-posting to celebrate the end of "Dude(s) in Distress Week", dealing with published images... (This is sort of a "Greatest Hits", as much of it has been posted before)

The history of the "Dude in Distress" in graphical literature is a long and noble one... there are probably medieval woodcuts showing that sort of thing, but as that slightly predates most of the usual area of scans_daily, we'll skip to something vaguely more recent... well, relatively speaking.

LOTS of scans under the cut, but I've used smallish thumbnails so as not to kill your broadband completely! Just stun it slightly...

Over a century of Dudes in Distress )

First shot at a post, sorry if there's any problem!

We've seen it from Dick Grayson in Batman and Robin's first run: if these pages from Detective Comics #815 are any indication, stepping into the boots of Batman entails losing a certain skill. Can you guess what it is?

Punctuality? Conversationalism? The ability to look silly in a pointy cape?  )

Apparently, Batmite is the reason by Brave and the Bold is getting cancel, not the CN's odd habit of canceling some of their newer shows after 3 seasons, or the the occasional fan favorite that is canned because no toys can be made for it... or if they change the name of the show like it was Coke... (cough)BEN10(cough)...

Let take a look at our favorite 5th-Diemsional fanboy last attempt to hijack a Batman show in his "New York Adventure" in Detective Comics #482.

2 pages & a video under the cut )
