Given how... unimpressed I've been by what I've seen of Nightwing #30 (Don't have the issue myself, but there are enough pieces of it poppping around that I've put it together), I thought that rather than complain (well, right now, I might complain later) let's do something a little more positive, so here is Fanart Thursday special!

A Batfamily special )

"I hope I’m not speaking out of school here, but during at least one point, the ideas got pretty crazy and [co-writer] James [Roberts] and I were talking outside the main room, off by a bathroom in fact, and said he was getting a little… ah… nervous, or worried about the direction things were going.

"And the funny thing was that I’d had that exact same reaction, years ago, about another creative retreat about another event, and I’d had the same moment of talking to somebody outside a bathroom about it. In my case, it was Mark Millar—and he told me not to worry, that these things settle down and the stuff that isn’t working will get tossed out. And he was right. So I told James about that—the way these summits work is like a brain working. There are all kinds of bananas ideas thrown around, and it gets whittled down to the actual story."
-- Dark Cybertron co-writer John Barber, on the nature of creative summits to plan Big Events

From Savage Wolverine #13,  the second part of a two-part story, dealing with the illegal trafficking in exotic animals, I find I'm torn, between featuring the guest appearance by visiting "Professor Ramsey" at the Jean Grey School. (Honestly, Americans will call ANYONE Professor, won't they?) and a rather diverting confrontation between Logan and Tyger Tiger as they debate the ethics of contraband.

Phil Jimenez is on art and Phil and Scott Lope (Apparently he'd be known to some as Host of Wild Animal Repo on Discovery Channel) on writing duties.
Savage is actually a pretty good adjective for this story )

'Sometimes, a crossover is just a label for a story so big that it involves a range of characters from multiple books. With "Dark Cybertron," the fact that these disparate characters are meeting each other again is a story in itself. And that, I think, is what makes it a 'proper' crossover. "More than Meets the Eye" and "Robots in Disguise" have led separate lives for two years, and now they're crashing into each other.' -- James Roberts

Well, thanks DCnU.

Just one more potential coulda-been that we will not experience... at least not in this universe.

Last issue, at the guidance of a bottle imp, Ali Baba found Briar Rose and gave her true love's kiss.

Fortunately, this means she's now awake again.

The London Super Comics Convention was the first comic convention I've attended in many, many years, and aside from the Stan Lee panel appearance (Where he proved he can still work a room like few others, even if the less than ideal acoustics meant that every question had to be repeated to him by the chap sitting next to him) Artists Alley was the place I'd be found.

Not exclusively Robin but.... )

With New Year's approaching let's see how the Team Titans celebrated the coming of 2001.

Plus, how did the Team Titans meet Terra?

6 pages from an 18 page story

Terra Rocks! )

It has been noted that since Cypher's return, certain artists have drawn our favourite little mutant linguist as looking a little emaciated, approaching the cadaverous at times.

This is partly to rectify this, and partly to remind us that there are nice people in the world.

Looking GOOD there Dougie boy! )

And for legality, I'm indebted to alphaflightcollector's blogspot for a delightfully naughty little reveal about Mr Douglas "Potty Mouth" Ramsey...

When he says he speaks EVERY language, that does include 'bad' I suppose )

With the end of the current Titans run, this seems an apt moment to showcase one of my favourite Titans moments in a long time, it's from the JLA/Titans crossover "The Technis Imperative" and I just happened to have obtained the original art for the page in question.

Saying goodbye... Going away.... (Oh great, now I'LL be bawling) )
And after that tear-jerking little moment, an announcement to make UK based fans go SQUEEEE! Though they'll need to squeee patiently

A new convention which sounds like fun )

STOP PRESS - Those missing their Secret Six/Teen Titans art fix, The Cn have exciting news about Nicola Scott's next project, which answers another question about the new DCU

My LCS didn't have this in stock, so a couple of pages, courtesy of CBR from their preview as Phil Jimenez.

As it's a new comic this week, I'll stick to the two page rule, it seems only fair,

But since covers don't count... That remains an awesome outfit for Dragonwing...



Also note in the bottom left box is the Legion's resident medic Dr Gym'll (He makes Bones McCoy look like little Miss Mary Sunshine, but he's a great character) with Variable Lad.

Now THAT'S sci-fi looking! )

Mr Jimenez does seriously kick arse work on this title

And this is also from CBR, a cover variant for New Mutants #25 (New creative team, new direction, etc etc) just because I think it's pretty!

The gangs all here... and then some! )
