cyberghostface: (Two-Face)
[personal profile] cyberghostface

With this we mark the end of my series of Two-Face anniversary posts. Thanks to all who read them.

As an aside, I recently discovered DC is putting out 'Two-Face: A Celebration of 75 Years' later this year. It should be interesting to see which of our selections overlap; if the placeholder cover is any indication, 'Eye of the Beholder' might be getting some recognition.

I was minding my business, and Marie Javin from DC e-mailed me about Deathstroke. I went "Deathstroke?" It took me a minute but I had to go, "Isn't he that guy who fights the Teen Titans?" She goes, "Yeah." And I go, "He has his own book?" "For a long time now." I knew nothing. So I said, "Send me some of that and I'll look at it." I looked at The New 52 stuff and I looked at some stuff prior to and I got in contact with her and said, "I appreciate you thinking of me, but I can't write this."

And she said, "We're doing this 'Rebirth' thing, so if you were writing Deathstroke what would you do?" And I said that it would be interesting to me if I could do something introspective. Kind of "behind the mask," you know? Get inside his head a little and kind of treat him the way we treated Black Panther in a lot of ways, where people are speculating about his motives and what he's going to do, and he's always one step ahead of everybody.

Usagi Yojimbo has always had a large amount of positive female role models. You can choose to identify yourself with wily and serious Chizu the cat ninja; clever and funny Kitsuné the fox thief; Inazuma, the most naturally gifted swordsperson in the comics (acknowledged in-universe). Even Mariko, Usagi's perennial love lost, is not a damsel in distress, but a competent samurai in her own right who chose to marry and raise a family.

But they all take a backseat to Tomoe Ame, the cat samurai. She is his equal in fighting abilities, having fought him twice onscreen, with one win and a draw. She is a personal bodyguard and senior adviser to Lord Noriyuki, despite her young age. She is Usagi's friend and confidant. She can be sweet and caring when the need arises. She is also the one chance Usagi could have for true happiness. And she is important enough to be the cover and main focus of Usagi Yojimbo Saga vol. 5, a massive 588-page tome collecting 3 whole books.

This is her story as told in Book 22 of Usagi Yojimbo, appropriately titled "Tomoe's Story" (also included in vol. 5 of the Saga).

The aim of these monthly posts is to give community members a chance to request postings; A story they might recall but not know the name of, or a specific arc, or even examples from a particular creator or genre.

We can't, of course, guarantee that any request will be filled, but given the combined geekitude of the community (and we mean that in the nicest possible sense) you might be surprised what can be unearthed.

About a year ago I posted some examples of Batman's troubled relationship with the Justice League. With "Tower of Babel" getting posted, here's a page from Brad Meltzer's JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #0.

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.
