In light of the upcoming Dial H for Hero series, here's a few pages from Will Pfeiffer and Kano's 2003 series, H.E.R.O!

Wow, that'll be almost a decade ago next year. )

It’s a shame that one of the most important things to ever happen to Harvey Dent as a character occurred in an overblown mess like Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee’s Batman: Hush.

It’s even more of a shame that no one developed Harvey from there on, instead leaving the character to gather cobwebs in limbo for THREE YEARS before utterly squandering all that potential in Face the Face. In an exercise of sheer masochism, I shall review both to examine all the great potential that DC pissed away in the name of mediocrity and the damned status quo. But before I can even analyze Harvey’s role, I need to go over his appearances in Hush as they actually played out. Be warned: this will result in a LOT of bitter, bitter sarcasm. I loathe Hush, both the story and the character, but I won’t be able to review the story as a whole for two reasons:

1.) I’m only interested in Harvey’s story, not in any of the seventeen other subplots happening at the same time in this poop-strewn labyrinth

2.) I like my blood pressure where it is, thank you very much.

So yeah, fair warning to those who love Batman: Hush. If you wish to defend it in the comments (or correct me on any details I might have missed), feel free. I won’t bite your head off, I promise! I know that this is a popular and beloved book to many, so I don’t want to step on any toes, but I simply cannot accept this story as anything other than crap... not even considering what he does with Harvey, which is admittedly pretty cool.

By which I mean, MY version of what Loeb does with Harvey. Because I'm not sure even Loeb knew what he actually did.

The return of Harvey Dent (but not his hair) behind the cut, along with lots and lots of ranting on my part )

Does anyone know if it's true that Loeb planned to write a Hush follow-up with Harvey Dent, and thus that's why he didn't appear in comics for three years?

Welcome to day 6 of [community profile] scans_daily's 30 Days of Winter celebration! Today's topic is Silent Comics!

Comics are, by definition, a visual medium, the sequential juxtaposition of images. And while they typically tell stories with words just as much as pictures, sometimes those words aren't needed at all.

Gotham Central included a couple particularly strong examples... )

So what are your favorite silent comics scenes or issues?
And stay tuned for tomorrow, when our topic will be Young Adult comics!

Since Jarodrussel was plugging Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four, here's one by Zeb Wells (who wrote Fantastic Four/Iron Man Big in Japan) and Kano who has some cute stuff on his website.
21 Things I want in a Lover )
Kano and Zeb Wells' run on Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four is really good. I'd recommend buying it . It's four little stories, each focussing on a different member of the team.

Also, Ifanboy.comhas a preview of SDCC 2011 )
