I chose to interpret that story as an open letter against the hypocrisy, sexism, and misuse of organized religions the world over, and I applaud you. I would love to slather you with more praise for such an amazing issue, but I am not the wordsmith for such a task, so I'll stop this here. Thank you.

Thank you very much!

I am very glad you found it meaningful. I am not condemning faith at all, but when people have so much power over others, they do tend to abuse it.

It’s a weird thing, I would never have expected to be able to say things I really want to say in Red Sonja, of all books, but she really does find herself in eternally relevant situations!

Wonder Woman fantasizes about how she’d prefer to deal with Batman’s rogues gallery.

From Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #2, by Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver.

This page makes zero sense without the page before it and the one after.

Apparently Two-Face is hollow and filled with raspberry jam.

Well, to be fair, Two-Face has always been one of the most delicious bat-villains. Him and Humpty Dumpty.

:)

No harm done, it’s just this is a culmination of several factors being thrust at Diana. 

It’s a fun issue. :)

I Know It’s Wrong…

…but I want Disney Infinity 2.0 with the heat of a thousand suns.

Avengers, Guardians, Spidey, AND Stitch, Jasmine, Maleficent and Merida?

Plus Donald?


Call me a casual gamer if you like.

MUST HAVE THIS NOW.

New 52 Character Flaw - Batgirl 

One thing I noticed as I browsed through my save image is one of Batgirl’s character flaw:

She lashes out at friends and foes when she’s completely stressed out.

…or when she feels underestimated. 

When she just recovered and needed acknowledgement more than pity. She mistook Nightwing’s worry for underestimation.

When Joker returned, she lashed at Nightwing for not helping her without listening to her reason. On top of her own trauma, the involvement of her brother and the attack on her family, this is where she forgo all caution and actually acted with intent to murder Joker.

After she mended her relationship with her father, Commissioner Gordon was accused for murder and Knightfall launched an open war against the criminals of Gotham. She lashed out on Helena Wayne because she wore the same color as Knightfall.

When she went on her own to track the person responsible for sending her father to prison, she mistook Batman sending Red Hood to watch over her for mistrust. That is after she berated Jason for being a wanted man.

Whether this character flaw is handled well or not I leave it up to you, but I love that it’s maintained throughout the Bat Titles, creating a consistent character trait for Barbara.

I also like this flaw because it makes her similar to Bruce Wayne. There’s a certain closeness I feel when two characters share a trait.

Though not as often as him, thank ****

Batman Eternal #4 by Dustin Nguyen and whoever wrote that part

Batgirl #33 by Gail Simone and Fernando Pasarin

Batman Eternal #12 by Mikel Janin and whoever wrote THAT part

(…and here I thought I’d never write a commentary or fan analysis again. Well the last quiet months have been fun…)

Dead on. Batgirl had a lot of anger issues, and some of them involve lashing out.

The difference, I think, is that she comes to realize she’s doing it, and that it’s wrong.

Yes, absolutely, they don’t have to be Dynamite books. Bring as many books as you like, whatever publisher. Cool?

Baltimore Comic Con!

It took a lot of arranging, but I will be at the Baltimore Comic Con, to give the Keynote speech at the Harvey Awards (yikes!).

I have been asked a bunch of questions, so here we go:

Yes, I will be there for the entire con. I believe I am mostly at he DYNAMITE booth (they helped sponsor my appearance), so that is where you will find me all three days.

I think I have one spotlight panel and one gender panel. Will announce when it’s confirmed…

I am happy to sign anything you bring me, they don’t have to be just Dynamite books. And I am always happy to sign any number of books, there is never a charge for signatures or photos or anything like that.

A lot of people have already asked for scripts and it is a question of timing. I will definitely have Red Sonja and Movement scripts, not sure if I will be able to bring more this time yet or not. I will not be doing reservations, unless there’s a real mitigating reason, okay?

It’s going to be great fun. Hope o see you!
