From Excalibur Annual #2 back in 1994. This was about eight years after Cypher was killed, and about three months after Douglock was introduced in the pages of "The Phalanx Covenant", and was perhaps meant to provide a primer..

I don't know if this was ever posted at the old Scans Daily, but it hasn't been posted here! Parts of six pages from five issues.

Back in 1989, a mysterious new character started communicating with the Suicide Squad via computer. The Squad's computer technician (and you may all marvel at the super-modern computers) was Flo Crawley, an idealistic young woman given a job by Amanda Waller, who is apparently a friend of her mother Edna Mae.

First contact!

A computer voice says HELLO I AM ORACLE IS ANYONE PRESENT? to a surprised-looking Flo

Then The Wall finds out... )

Fans of comics love to argue who is the best/fastest/toughest character. Among DC Martial Artists, Cassandra Cain, Lady Shiva, or Batman often get the nod. But there's one fellow who sometimes gets missed, even though he's been around since the early 70's:



Part of it is understandable, as he disappeared from comics after his short-lived series (based on a novel by Denny O'Neill & Jim Berry) was canceled, but 23 years ago, Denny re-invented him as the archetypal martial arts master, that guy who isn't as flashy as some, but is the best person to learn from.

Class is now in session )

It's because these scenes (among others) were so cool that I didn't care for the Dixon revamp. I do have a pet theory that "Richie" is a different fellow entirely, but this might not be the place for that. :)

This is from the excellent double sized 50th issue of the SS. It brought all the treads together from the original SS to the current teams. This book was all about very damaged people confronting their personal demons ,both hero and villain.

As people probably know, DC is reviving a bunch of dead comics for Blackest Night. I think it would be cool if people could post some scans of the final issue of those series. (I realize that some of these issues will easier to find than others.)

For legality, and to do my share, the final two pages of Suicide Squad 66 )

This post consists of 6 pages (5 full pages and two halves of two different pages) from an 18-page story from The Batman Chronicles #5 (and a cover), called "Oracle--Year One: Born of Hope", written by John Ostrander and Kim Yale.

The story is supposed to take place after the events of The Killing Joke, where former Batgirl Barbara Gordon was shot by the Joker and her legs paralysed.





I'd also like to bring up something you may have already seen 'round the comics blogosphere, but writer John Ostrander has been battling with glaucoma, is apparently in danger of losing his eyesight, and is struggling to pay the medical costs. A website's been set up (www.comix4sight.com) with a longer explanation of the situation, but there's a online donation drive and an auction in August. Any money leftover is to be donated to the Hero Initiative.
