ADEVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #644 and Request: SACRIFICE epilogue

The posting of IDENTITY CRISIS led to a few Epilogue posts, which led to mention of SACRIFICE. Max Lord mind-controls Superman. There is a vicious fight with Wonder Woman. Diana gets her lasso around Superman to free him, and then gets it around Max. Max says "You can't hold me forever, and next time I'll make him kill Batman or Lois or you." When asking how to prevent this, Max says "Kill me." And Diana does just that.
But I am requesting the epilogue to this. In WONDER WOMAN #220, Diana goes to Batman to explain everything, and Batman just says "Get out." ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #643, Superman goes to Batman, Batman says Diana told him everything, they bicker about the Brother Eye satellite and the OMAC drones. Batman finally says "Go home to your wife, Clark."

Lois says it. )

31 Days of Scans, Day 22: Favorite Villain (Main Post)

I am apparently bad at keeping track of days. It turns out today *is* the 22nd. I don't know why I kept thinking it was on a Sunday. But yes! today is villains day! :P

While I very much don't like the New 52 version, Harley Quinn was the villainess that got me to buy my first DC Comic!

And well...who could forget that time she worked at the Daily Planet as an advice columnist? )

31 Days of Scans - Favourite writer - Kurt Busiek

I've been through a LOT of writers in my time, in the comic book consumer sense of course. Some have been great, some have been pretty awful, some have been workmanlike, and some have transcended the genre.

Neil Gaiman was a terribly tempting choice, as were Alan Moore and Grant Morrison (particularly early in their career), who were genuinely groundbreaking in the US comic format, and Gaiman at least still earns an automatic (if trial) pull on any new title he writes, and Mark Gruenwald deserves honorary mention for producing many excellent stories playing in the Marvel toybox, but there's another who IMHO always produces quality work. If he's writing the "classic" characters he treats them with respect but not reverence, and usually has a new twist on them, and if he's writing his own characters they may seem somewhat familiar, but there's something else going on to surprise us.

I mean, of course...

Lois and Clark - The first time is always awkward

Courtesy of Nebezial, and just to be on the safe side, perhaps not the safest thing to view at work, but there's nothing OVERLY blatant.

He's Superman, but whan you think about it, he's maybe not )

Fanart Thursday - On a Monday... because that's just the way I roll

I realise it's been a little while since I did a Fanart post, so let's address that, shall we?

And I'm devoting it to a single artist and a single project...
