Cowards die a thousand times, but the valiant taste of death but once...except in comics, where you get resurrected into (hopefully) better things. Screw you, Shakespeare.

Anyway, here's Maxima's death from the Superman event, "Our Worlds At War" - written by Mark Schultz, and drawn by Doug Mahnke. More after the cut!

And so our Bloodlines event comes to its surprising conclusion.

We saw the DC heroes captured by the newly risen Taker, all except Flash and Superman. Now it's time for a new group of heroes to get their butts kicked, I mean save the day.

One (well two sorta) New Bloods powers proved utterly key in this story, can you guess which tough guy saves the day?

Okay Taker, Let's Mix it Up! )

The Bloodlines have ended. The heroes of the DCU are now finally able to assemble against the Parasite threat, but will it be enough? Or will it be the fall of Earth?

18 pages of a 56 page story.

I have to also warn you that while the art of the Annuals each had specific teams who were used to the books they were on...  but the artists who worked on Bloodbath varied, and the art seemed very rushed at times. (Including having a page that I won't post with Martian Manhunter on it that hurts my eyes)

And you thought the Parasites were bad? )

In this installment of Bloodlines we get to probably my second favorite of the male Bloodliners (after Joe Public if anyone really wanted to know, or it might be a tie between 'em I tend to go back and forth).

This issue is nice in that it portrays a pretty realistic look on a guy who gets powers after his life has turned to hell, at least to me.

I just read this very interesting piece on Matt Seneca's blog, Death To The Universe. It's titled "Monday panel 39", but he should've used one of his own pull quotes and called it "Everything rioting all at once". The article is, and I want you to hear me out on this, a defence of Rob Liefeld. Seneca argues that, whatever you might think of Liefeld, you have to credit the bonkers genius of a vision so weird, so relentless, so complete in its reinvention of comics art that it's almost transcendent. Though the argument's not getting a ton of support in the comments, it's made me rethink Liefeld -- and my great pleasure in life is to shout "LIIIIIEEFEEEEELD" whenever something goes wrong, from burning toast to the Irish economy, so this is saying something.

More than that, he's made me reconsider the book I've just finished reading, <i>Extreme Justice</i>. )

That's right, yesterday's was the last of 'em. Now, for other GA WW enthusiasts, I posted scans from every issue in the first four volumes of the Archive Editions, plus from the 70's collection with the intro by Gloria Steinem. So if anyone wants to pick up where I left off by buying volume five or later, feel free because I'm done.

For legality, here's something I found on the web last weekend. If it's been posted here before, I wasn't able to find it. There's been discussion here lately about whether the Amazons were lesbians, so when I found this I had to share it.

I owe my flatmate one, so I want to try and blow up/paint a large pop art acrylic image of Maxima on some canvas (He really likes Maxima and tells me that he's been waiting for years for her to come back whenever I bitch about Ted Kord's demise).

Anyway, I can't find any substantial (or very striking) images of Maxima on google images to work from, or even any comics on ebay that seem to feature her.

So, can anyone help me out? Cover art would probably work best, but I have no idea how much she featured on covers back in the day.
