And Jason 1.0

Saw some original art from this issue online and realisd I'd always meant to share the issue. It's a minor story in many ways, Doug Moench writing the first of a sort of two part story which isn't major or "important", but to share Don Newton pencils with Alfredo Alcala inks and Adrienne Roy colours, is always a pleasure.

Men working for the man he was after chased him.

That man, atop the Monument, took his call.

Batman accused him of orchestrating the end of the world through the works of Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and the Mad Hatter.

He said that those were only a lesson.

" I was showing you the three most likely ways the world would end.

" Cataclysm.

" Plague.

" Solipsism.

" Those are the ways the world would have ended, in a year, maybe five, if it wasn't ending here now. Tonight. In a fourth way. My way. "

He aimed his sniper rifle at Batman, who was closing in.

He asked what it was that'd pointed the way to him.

" ..

" I found a ' daemon. ' "

He pulled the trigger, shooting Batman's cycle out from under him.

He, Ra's al Ghul, watched Batman and the cycle's wreckage fly through the air.

He looked down on his work. )

In the fourth digital issue of Bombshells United, Marcelo DiChiara takes over art duty, which prompts me to ask:
Does this look like an adult Wonder Woman to you?

They'd followed him to Alaska and Mr. Freeze.

They'd met him in Nevada, with Poison Ivy.

They were before him in Mississippi, in front of the Mad Hatter.

He fought them off and went to confront the Hatter, thinking about the first time he'd met him.

It'd been some time back. )

She heard a sound outside her tent.

She opened the flap.

Batman appeared before her.

" Dr. Isley. "

She tried to drive him away. He vanished.

She asked if he was here to take her in.

" No. "

She caught him.

" I'm *unh*.. I'm here to ask for your help. "

He showed her the problem. )

Issue #6's focus was Mr. Freeze.

It opened in Alaska, three hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle.

Batman entered a research station and saw its occupants frozen.

He heard sounds.

" Victor! "

He turned.

" What have you done? "

What Victor'd done came out of the shadows. )

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!

He'd just discovered that he hadn't killed Lex Luthor as he thought.

" Luthor, you torment me past your death! This suits you not! "

Lex laughed.

Superman took the scene in. )

Apparently Gerard Way can write a really good Superman! Someone give him an Action Comics guest arc.
