It's been a weird Tuesday so I'm up for a little something pretty, but since I believe in being even handed about these things....

For those who like the ladies...

And for those who like the chaps...

This post is serving two purposes

For one thing, it includes the absolute romantic and sexy scene that Dick Grayson has had in a long, long time, so it satisfies the Valentines Day criteria.

And the other reason relates to Young Justice too... sorta )

In light of the Identity Crisis post, I personally feel the need for a bit of a metaphorical palate cleanser, some good old fashioned comics in my "Accentuate the Positive" series...

So here are two pages from Batman #1

Say it with me kids...

Criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot )

Now, I think I've been very restrained for the most part of late, with a distinct lack of chronically imperilled acrobatic heroes, more or less.

Time to sort of remedy that with some scans from a book I found yesterday which was an impulse purchase and not a bad one at that, It's a hardback book called "The World According to the Joker" (There's also one called "The World According to Batman" which I didn't pick up)

It's a glimpse into the Jokers head-space as part of a series of psychological examinations by Dr Arkham

It goes as well as you might expect )

So after Nightwing #0 (The origin of Dick as Robin) and Secret Origins #1 (The origin of Dick as Robin), we now have Secret Origins #8 giving us... the origin of Dick as Robin.... The New 52 seems to have some sort of complex about this....

First up is the recovery of something that seemed to have been lost in the New 52, Dick's ethnicity...

Now scans_daily welcomes those of all religious persuasions, or no religious persuasion at all, and long may it continue to do so.

And whilst appreciating that there are those for whom this day is not particularly special, or whose religious celebrations occur at other times of the year, I hope no one will be offended if I post a couple of Christmas themed special pieces.

So who is on the Naughty List? )

Now my past few “Main posts” have tended towards the verbose, but I suspect that I don’t really need to be for this one, as the scans will do most of the work.

If you can’t work out who I would nominate for this, then I think it’s safe to say that either you are new here (in which case “Hi!”) or you haven’t been paying attention! :)

Who else COULD it be, but the owner of the most maximus of gluteus

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...
