"It’s one of the most challenging things about this book and one of the most satisfying things. The tone is a very specific tone and it requires a balancing act. We want it to be dark and spooky, but we don’t want it to be terrifyingly dark and too spooky. My eight year old niece needs to be able to read this book, but it also has to feel like it has some gravitas to it. The dark and spooky stuff still needs to be effective. That stuff’s tough to achieve, I don’t think we could do it without Karl’s deft hand pulling it all together in the artwork stage. He really knows how to strike that balance perfectly." - Brenden Fletcher

"Gotham Academy was at [the American Library Association midsummer meeting], where we learned there was no such thing as “all ages.” Honestly, I am writing my part of Gotham Academy for myself. This is the kind of book I want to enjoy, but at the same time I’m very conscious that my eight-year-old niece needs a book like this. If I have to drill down and say it has to be shelved in a certain place or recommended to a specific demographic, I would say young people eight to 14. My niece is eight and she loves Gotham Academy. I feel very proud when I give her a book and she devours it and wants more. I had her in mind when I put it together. I need to know this is something she is really going to enjoy. It feels really validating. I know that it’s not inappropriate for that age range, we are not putting anything in there that would be inappropriate at all, but also I know this story plays for somebody at that age. It’s really been stirring a chord with her." - Brenden Fletcher

When last we left our probably-pyrokinetic heroine, she and her friends were supping with Killer Croc when suddenly: Batman!

Hooray, they're saved! )

When last we left our investigative heroine, she went into some hidden tunnels and found herself facing Killer Croc.

Hopefully he's not in one of his cannibal phases )

When last we left our ghost-hunting heroine, she and her crack commando squad classmates broke into the haunted North Hall, where a hand grabbed Olive's arm.

To whom--or what--could the hand belong?? )

When last we left our somewhat amnesiac heroine, she snuck out of the dorms in the middle of the night, damaged a rare, antique library book, and set fire to a shrine in the cemetery.

And in this issue: Arkham Asylum! Kinda! )

When last we left our silver-locked heroine, she was trying to grapple with some mysterious life-altering event that happened over the summer, while working on maintaining her relationship with her (ex-?) boyfriend's little sister.

But there are also other people to relate to (or not)! They shall be found below. )

Remember Teen Titans: Year One, the mini written by Amy Wolfram and with amazing art by Karl Kerschl? Back when DC acknowledged there had been a Teen Titans that included Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Roy Harper, Wally West and Garth of Atlantis?

Over on his Tumblr, Karl Kerschl has just unveiled a set of "lost pages" from the series, which were supposed to run as a two page episodic story in each issue as a future member of the team tries to track down these new Teen Titans, but never quite manages it in time for their paths to intersect.

It's not easy being... well, you can guess the next part... )

Here's my feeble attempt Dudes in Distress Week. I actually wracked my brains trying to think of a good story to post and having wanted to post this story for a while it stood out to me.

What happens when Superman falls into a near death state? Who can save the day? Part 1 of 3.

7 pages from a 22 page story.

Co-starring a female who would make Jaime Reyes say "Hot Damn!"

Greetings True Believers!

I've been inspired by Domino Blue's post below so I'll be taking a rare dip into the DC pool.

Back in 2004 DC had a mini-series were Wildstorm hero and Superman analogue Mr. Majestic landed in the main DCverse.

Now, Mr. M is quite different then Clark and it's been rubbing this Earth the wrong way.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Two superheroes walk into a diner...

Enjoy!

Be warned this post is going to have sixteen scans (of four issues). Oh and this is the infamous story involving Cassandra Cain written by Adam Beechen (Robin #148-149 plus Batgirl #52 & 73). You'll probably find yourself a member of the Red Lantern Corp after reading these scans if you're a fan of Cassandra Cain or Tim Drake. You've been warned.

Since Volume 1 finished this week, I want to have a little look back at some bits from S.H.I.E.L.D. (officially the worst comic to type), specifically The Night Machine )

Next week, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood comes out. It will be ace.

Handily, this week, Wildstorm launched The Fall, a three part series looking at a new assassin and a new descendant.


Go get your wounded heart )
And, in news of cooler assassins Altair just wants a hug )

Ressurecting more of the old posts; Teen Titans Year One is definately one of the best of the Year One minis, helped in very great deal by Karl Kerschl's amazing artwork and visual gags.

21 pages of mentor dickery and adorable fish boys. )

(For the mods, that's 7 pages each from the first three issues.)

Thought I'd share a comic I just read called Josh and Imp. Written by Jon Bernhardt and drawn by Diana Nock, it was made for an anthology that never got made.
It's kind of a freeform exploration of the superhero lifestyle, riffing on the Batman and Robin partnership. With kisses. And grappling hooks. It's a bit dialogue-heavy, but it's worth it for the awesome ending. I think you'll like it.

And one page from Robin under the cut )
