Luciano Vecchio is an Argentian artist I follow on DeviantArt and Tumblr. Amongst other work, he's been the artist on some of the "Easy Reader" DCAU books which are very cute and my nieces have enjoyed.

Quoting from his entry on DA for these pages (which he kindly agreed to share)

Last week I read the anthology Love Is Love, published by DC Comics and IDW, an homage to the victims and survivors of the Orlando shooting.

I didn’t dare asking to participate when Marc Andreyko made an open call for creators. But after reading it, and seeing the DC characters there (which I didn’t expect), I kept thinking what would I have done, and I was inspired to do this short story. Couldn’t help myself actually.

It falls utterly and unashamedly under the category of fan fiction. My first ever.


So with that preamble in mind... )

Justice League of America #224 was one of the first comics Kurt Busiek ever wrote - he was 23 at the time - and it's a great little done-in-one. The villain has a cool power, and the Justice League comes across as smart and strategic.

Plus, that cover has Red Tornado's dismembered torso.

So I know that people around here have been... distracted by the election and everything surrounding it, but there's a recent event that I thought people around here would be interested in discussing.

I guess that's one explanation why Bats values being the Smart Guy so much. Also, what's the over/under for Bruce verbally acknowledging he loves his family? Three years? Five? Ten?

Plus, one of the best Superman moments in a Rebirth that's been full of them. Check it!

I look at his little face and see yours )

The Associated Press reports:

"The United Nations celebrated Wonder Woman's 75th birthday on Friday by naming the comic book character as its new Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Woman and Girls, despite frustration from both inside and outside the world organization that the spot should go to a real — and less sexualized — woman."

According to stuff, the Dominators are the villains for this CW season's Arrow/Flash/Legends/Supergirl crossover. I haven't read any mainstream stories with them, but here's one about them from the DCAU.

Featuring: democracy in the face of intergalactic racists, Green Lantern incapable of number comparison, and Phonetically Adorbs Missile Firing Noises! Not featured: the absence of a "Mr. Lau from The Dark Knight" reference.

Choom! Choom! Choom! )

...especially on scans_daily.

I'm actually a little surprised I'm the first to post this, but such is life.

In an interview with Comicosity, Greg Rucka confirmed that the Diana he and Nioola Scott are creating since Rebirth, is not 100% heterosexual!

And in other news bears do.... actually, no, this is important dammit, and deserves more respect that that.

I would strongly advise you to read the whole interview (actually, the whole article is interesting and does indicate some of the steps that DC has taken in terms of representation of late), but I think this is the bit to focus on for us;

Matt Santori-Griffith: I’m going to start off simple and to the point. The Wonder Woman that you and Nicola have introduced to us in “Year One” — is she queer?

Greg Rucka: How are we defining “queer?”

You’re applying a term specifically and talking to an ostensibly cis male (and white to boot), so “queer” to me may not be the same as it is to an out gay man. So, tell me what queer is.

MSG: Fair enough. For the purposes of this conversation, I would define “queer” as involving, although not necessarily exclusively, romantic and/or sexual interest toward persons of the same gender. It’s not the full definition, but it’s the part I’m narrowing in on here.

GR: Then, yes.

I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say, “Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!”

And when you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, “How can they not all be in same sex relationships?” Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.

It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.

But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, “You’re gay.” They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.

Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? As Nicola and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes.

And it needs to be yes for a number of reasons. But perhaps foremost among them is, if no, then she leaves paradise only because of a potential romantic relationship with Steve [Trevor]. And that diminishes her character. It would hurt the character and take away her heroism.

Have to say, I do like that he asked how they were defining queer in context, just to make certain!

The whole "being gay does not exist in the sense we mean it" bit in another context would irritate me, but I can see in the context of the Amazons of Themiscriya, where millennia of an entirely female, immortal population would alter one's perceptions of relationship, it's a valid comment.

Your thoughts and opinions?

For Batman Day, here are some Batman pages. The first group covers some of Bruce Wayne's troubled mind, the second and third deal with his troubled "friendship" with other superheroes.

Cowards die a thousand times, but the valiant taste of death but once...except in comics, where you get resurrected into (hopefully) better things. Screw you, Shakespeare.

Anyway, here's Maxima's death from the Superman event, "Our Worlds At War" - written by Mark Schultz, and drawn by Doug Mahnke. More after the cut!
