riddler13: (Richard Dragon)
[personal profile] riddler13
I became a big fan of Richard Dragon after O'Neill used him as a sensei during his Question run in the mid-80's. It reached a point where it became my go-to handle whenever I need to register to something without using my true name, replacing the Riddler (huh, goes to show how old this account is).

So I decided to tackle his old comics, fully aware that they were pure kung-fu exploitation, and he wouldn't have the calm demeanor he shows in the Question run. To my surprise, they are quite passable, but issue #3 is a gem in itself, since it is illustrated by none other than Jack Kirby himself.



Enter the Dick Dragon... no, wait... )

And what a coincidence: 100 years of Kirby, 100th use of the Kirby tag!

There was a Batman story where Bruce Wayne was injured and had to be replaced by a Batman in power armor.

Insert "No, the other one" joke here.

Some random Batman and KNIGHTFALL speculation after the cut.

Posting these because of a discussion earlier about awesome civilians in the DCU.

Let's get started )

This should surprise no one who's familiar with my posts in this community, nor, really, anyone who pays attention to my username.

I. Love. The. Joker. Always have, probably always will.

Now, I'm fully aware of the "Batman/the police/some civilian should totally kill this asshole Villain Sue!" sentiment on many corners of the Internet, and I can understand them. Hell, in some ways, I emphasize with them. For the last ten or fifteen years, the man who once proudly called himself the Clown Prince of Crime has been headed down a pretty steep slide into mindless, humorless violence (interspersed with those obnoxious events that shove themselves in our faces and scream "SEE! SEE? THE JOKER IS BATMAN'S #1 VILLAIN AGAIN! HE'S NO LAUGHING MATTER NOW, BABY!"), and if anything, the DCnU and Scott Snyder have only exacerbated it.

And yet... and yet, no matter how low his low points get, they can never quite cancel out the highs. Perhaps those high points will never return, but even if that's so, he's already got plenty under his belt for us to peruse at our leisure.

Besides, I just can't hate a face like this.



The Best of the J-Man, behind the cut! )
