I just locked down almost all the posts in this journal (that I hadn't updated in like 8 months anyway lol).

So yeah. I might unlock them later, idk.

"Nick Spencer (Morning Glories) assembles the cream of the crop of the next generation of DCU super-heroes in this issue – Robin, Static, Miss Martian, Blue Beetle, Batgirl, the new Impulse – to team up with Supergirl and take on a new villain who promises to define this generation as much as Darkseid, Lex Luthor and The Joker did prior ones. Good luck, kids!"


THIS IS EVERYTHING I WANT IN A COMIC, HOLY SHIT!

Is it REALLY that hard to know the costumes of the characters you're drawing?

Note: Jesse Quick's speedster outfit isn't even that hard: Red shirt. Yellow shorts.

But of course that didn't show enough skin, so you felt the need to leave out the bottom half of the t-shirt, right?

Also, colourist who probably did last minute edits: your attempts to fix the inker's mistake by colouring red (the wrong shade in a few cases, by the way) over Jesse's inexplicably exposed torso probably would have been better had you not missed the large full body, detailed image of her on like, the third page. Way to jerk me right out of the story to contemplate whether or not Jesse was speed changing her shirt just for fun.

Having seen Roy's use of staplers and extension cords, all I can think is "Villains, beware! He is deadly with office supplies! Whatever you do, don't get locked in a storage closet with him; it will not end well!"

Also, this thread made me laugh loud enough to wake up my cat. I know it shouldn't have, because the mental image I got really shouldn't have been that funny. But it did, and now I oddly feel better about the whole thing.

As fail as the comic is, at least something tangentially related to it made me laugh. So all in all, this was a good day. =D
crooked_arrow: (YEEAAAAHHH!)
So, just when the clusterfuck that is everything Green Arrow is making me wonder what the weather is like in Marvel this time of year, DC announces a Jason Todd mini.

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

One day I will stop letting a comic book company continue to string me along.

Today is not that day.





DAMMIT SUMMER, COME FASTER!

I AM MAKING A HAPPY POST, DAMMIT! I WILL USE A 'HAPPY' MOOD THEME. I WILL HAVE A TAG ABOUT THINGS THAT MAKE ME SMILE. THE FACT THAT A SMILING KYRPTO IS MY DEFAULT ICON WILL MAKE SENSE AND NO LONGER BE IRONIC! (Never mind. I've changed the icon to Huntress)
IN ANY CASE: HAPPY!

So a single comic this week made me really sour and left such a bad taste in my mouth that I had no desire to read 'Tec, even though I'm loving the story line and the co-feature, and I've been looking forward to the new issue since last month. But DC really pissed me off, so just to spite them the only comic I've read so far this week since C4J was Girl Comics, and I don't regularly read Marvel. But I read it first this week, and I'm going to buy the floppy even though I hate floppies, and I'm going to buy the trade when(/if?) it comes out. Fuck you DCx1000.


Girl Comics! It made me happy, so in the spirit of a happy post, I'm going to talk about it.

Overall, probably not worth 5 dollars for me, seeing as how half of it I didn't really understand or like. But I'm going to get it anyway, because my love for everything else outweighs the bad. Most importantly, this book made me smile. And a book that does that deserves monetary recognition.

Dear J.T. Krul, and every other writer who has been part of thankfully ending train-wreck that is Green Arrow and Black Canary,

Please stop treating Dinah like a one trick pony whose only ability is her Canary Cry. I direct you to the early BoP issues where she DIDN'T have the cry, and was still, amazingly enough, a awesomely badass hero. Hell, I even direct you to the wedding issue, where Dinah STABBED OLLIE IN THE NECK when he attacked her, instead of standing there crying and getting beaten.

Accomplished street fighters do not lose slapping matches to guys who shoot trick arrows. Dinah fucking Lance doesn't stand around sobbing while her undead (redead?) husband smacks her. She stabs him in the neck with his own arrow. Because she's awesome.

No love,
-Crook

P.S. I'm fairly certain that, not too long ago, Mia said that Connor already knew about Ollie leaving his mother. If your going to retcon something, retcon deadbeat!Ollie entirely out of existence, please.



(all of my entries here so far have been wanking posts. I need something happy to post about, dammit!)

Two Things

1) The stupid Olympic "I Believe" song is starting to get on my nerves. It was a nice song the first 4 or 5 times I heard it. The 457 times after that, not so much. I'm beginning to feel some horrible sort of conditioning set it. Soon, every time I hear that song I might be compelled to punch someone in the face out of annoyance. Or go skiing. My knowledge of Pavlov is very limited.

I also feel bad for all the people who bought it on itunes (according to CTV, it was the number one download in Canada the day it came out). I don't know how much you people paid, but you can hear it for free EVERY FREAKING DAY!

2) I enjoy that dreamwidth doesn't use the words "friends" anywhere. It makes me feel less pathetic and anti-social becuase I don't have any. Having no subscriptions and groups? Far less depressing than having no friends.

I'm not really sure why I'm on dreamwidth, but everyone else is doing, so what the heck. Might as well hop on the bandwagon.
