Text piece from Tomorrow Stories #1|
When America's Best Comics launched, Alan Moore wrote text pieces for the first issues of each title. The text pieces for Promethea, Tom Strong, and Top Ten were reprinted in those books' trade paperback collections. The Tomorrow Stories piece, however, was left out of that book's trades.

A long, long time ago, when things were much simpler for our young mutants....|
Inspired by this discussion, a look back on happier days.
From New Mutants vol 2 #2-3 (Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir, and I think either/or Keron Grant and Randy Green on art)
Edit: DivCut hates me

Catwoman's Origin: Also Multiple Choice (but some choices are better than others)|
Recently, the issue of Catwoman's origin came up. Specifically, the post-Crisis Y1 retcon that she was a prostitute, inspired by "real man" Batman to dress up like a loony and follow in his footsteps, or something; the subsequent Zero Hour retcon to something much better; and the innumerable other retcons that ignored the Zero Hour retcon in favor of Miller's take, only more XTREEM, adding rape, underaged victimization, etc etc.
And since everything is more clear with scans, I thought I'd post those two different takes, so everybody can see the contrast for themselves.

Batman and Catwoman on a Dinner Date|
I thought I should post a fun kid-friendly Batman/Catwoman story that still had some sexual undertone.

Previews of ASM #593|
It's been a weird week, so let's just skip to the good stuff. End Friday on a good note.
FRESH NEW ICON TO USE FOR S_D.
Someone at Marvel MUST love us for giving us such a gift.
As often, Peter verbalizes exactly what I say to myself (when I whimper in a corner and nurse my bleeding eyes) so often after seeing what you people post on this journal.
And I love you for it.
Newsarama previews Spidey #593
So.... for those of you who view the preview... what's more disturbing?
What we saw last issue, or Peter's attempt to hide the chubby and deal with those Oedipus issues he's repressed for so long?

Some more Catwoman origin pages|
Inspired by bluefall's posting on Catwoman's Post-Crisis origin and how Batman influenced her, here are two pages from CATWOMAN (Vol 1) #94. The story is written by John Francis Moore, and the art is by Staz Johnson and Wayne Faucher. They do a good job copying/riffing/homaging David Mazzucchelli's style for YEAR ONE flashbacks.
( Any whoring is carefully not mentioned. )

Dan Didio on the status of the New Gods, post-Final Crisis|
From Newsarama: "The aspect of the New Gods and Darkseid have been removed from the DC Universe so that he is no longer a threat for, and they are no longer allies for the heroes in the DC Universe."
Darkseid is sad...

Even X-men got to shout|
I know Deadpool already got a whole week and all but it just occurred to me that new!S_D lacks Deadpool in the Marvel Girl outfit. I could not, in good conscience, let this pass.

Still more Catwoman origin pages|
Posted these images on the old site, with a lot of text that's gone now, and I'm just too tired and cranky to try to retype.

Age of Bronze|
Age of Bronze is a comic series by Eric Shanower depicting the Trojan War, and I just love it and wanted to share. I had to read the Iliad and the Odyssey in school, and though I got the gist, it is somehow a lot different when you have an image to associate with the characters - especially when it's art this good-looking!
The archaeological background was heavily researched and it really shows - these aren't your usual toga-clad players, but rather very plausible Bronze-Age Myceneans and Trojans. The stories of the characters themselves - past and present, and enough relatives to make the Summers family tree look pedestrian - are interwoven to present a unified story despite the varied origins of the original myths.
