You say favorite artist and I think of two people. If figured I'd just pick one for this post. It was hard, actually, because the first (and very obvious) George Perez has a very different style from the person I picked, Dustin Nguyen, but that just goes to show how great it is to have different artists!

I'm terrible at talking about art, but what I love about DN is his art always seems so full of movement--and fun movement. Like no matter what's going on there's a sense of "Whooosh!" which is one of the main appeals of being a superhero I imagine.

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 art in this is so beautiful it makes me regret my scanner is such a poor qualty one... or it might make me wish I went in for digital comics more, but in any event, I recommend seeking out these issue for yourself, if only for the first four pages, which are amongst the loveliest I've seen in ages.

Ah, Jervis Tetch. Generally regarded as little more than a third-stringer in the Batman mythos, with a nauseating appearance, a creepy personality, and an utterly stupid gimmick. Batman: The Animated Series is rightfully remembered for turning him into something more: a pitiful and sympathetic creature who was nevertheless just as creepy (perhaps even moreso) than his comics counterpart.

But once in a while, some story from the mainstream comics will rise to the challenge. Case in point: Detective Comics #841, in which the mastermind behind the BTAS version of Jervis, Paul Dini, sees if he can make lightning strike again.

The result? Well... it's not quite as memorable as the BTAS Hatter episodes (though that might be because the former sadly lacks Kevin Conroy and Roddy McDowall). Nevertheless, I regard it as one of the high points of Dini's hit-and-miss run on Detective, and the art from Dustin Nguyen doesn't hurt, either.

Warning: Spoilers for the issue's big twist ending, for those who haven't read it yet.

Okay, I'm cheating a little here, but hope you'll forgive me.

Remember the announcement about "Batman Eternal"? And how Batman, and Scott Snyder to a certain extent, getting another book seemed like a little bit of overkill.

At the NYCC today, Scott Snyder confirmed that in issue 3 of "Batman Eternal", Stephanie Brown will be debuting in the New 52 under his pen (Most likely as Spoiler)



Confirmation under the cut )

A recent thread about how childhood trauma seemed to generate villains, but few heroes, reminded me of Colin Wilkes, the closest thing Damian Waybe might have admitted to having as a friend (rather than ally), Colin Wilkes...

Inspired by icon_uk's and auggie18's Accentuate the Positive posts, here's a contribution of my own!

I've always believed that although Gotham contains the worst examples of comic book humanity, it also creates the best, most shining examples of it to aid her innocents.

Case in point: Dick!Batman, Huntress, and a certain Father Mark from the East End of Gotham:
