It strikes me I've been getting back into bad ways recently, getting all cynical and snarky about a hobby I still enjoy and the DCnU in particular, and so I'm going to focus on posting from a couple of DCnU titles I HAVE enjoyed lately, in particular, Talon and Amethyst, but to tide you over until I can get off my backside and sort that out, here's a little blast from the past, from 1977 in fact, from the page of Batman Family, Robin and Batgirl (and a surprise friend or two) face off against;

I am indebted to the invaluable resource, www.titanstower.com for a couple of news items I'd missed (and I have to praise them even more for keeping going when about 90% of the history of the comics the site was created to cover was wiped out by the DCnU. Check it out, it's a great site.)

First up, perhaps the last character I expected to get revamped, since she died in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and if I'm honest wasn't really missed TOO much..

Tula, the original Aquagirl )
Then we have the new identity for Bette Kane, the original Bat-Girll... Umm... Flamebird... Ummm I mean...

Really? THAT'S the name they're going with? )

And finally

For the honour of... Horde Prime? )

More family drama ask Kate Kane reacts to Bette getting injured, plus Kate's questionable decision that *could* put her at odds with Batman!

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet, so I guess I'll go ahead and do the honours.

Picking up where the last issue left off...

Shit got real so fast, I had a hard time picking four pages to post! D: )

A couple of scans I meant to include in my last post, featuring the work of Phil Jimenez

Starting with this shot from Infinite Crisis, where Brother Eye's orbiting camera's clearly share a certain empathy with it's creator's habits...



Click below for the most wonderfully gratuitous shot of them all....

Gratuitous is a VERY relative term, thankfully! )

And some fanart I'll probably regret in the morning )

While I've commented several times, this is my first official post in the new journal. I apologize if the tags aren't correct. I tried.

I've always loved this piece from the 3rd issue of the Beast Boy mini-series. To me, it defines what DC was trying to do with Beast Boy at the time... show that he's not the little kid of the team anymore who doesn't need "big brother Nightwing" to bail him out.



Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, TPTB decided to regress Gar to his 80's personality and have totally screwed him over for the last 2 years or so.

BTW, more of my Beast Boy scans (and the original artwork, which I acquired from the inker Chris Ivy) are at www.garfieldlogan.com

Andy Price is an artist whose style I've loved since I first saw this image;

NSFW (but not PURE porn) )

Andy has a genuine, if delightfully irreverent, love of the DC characters, in all their assorted styles and era's and can seemingly reproduce all of them.

Luckily he does a lot of work with sketchcards, for the DC Legacy series, and the new Batman Archives set from Rittenhouse and so there have been many nice examples of his work to be had, e-bay being a big help there!

So just bear in mind as you go through these, ALL of them are by the same artist....

Bat-centric fun below )
There are a LOT of images under here. Even if most of them are relatively small, dial up be warned.

As they have been released by DC for sale, I think it satisfies the need for a published piece of art, but I'll add one in if any mod thinks it's required.
