NIGHTWING #93: A sample of Devin Grayson's work|
Given how much Devin Grayson's run on NIGHTWING has been discussed on my previous post, I thought some pages from said run might be appreciated.
This can be considered the climax of the "Born Again 2: Electric Boogaloo" storyline in NIGHTWING. In more ways than one. (D'oh!)
( Never stopping )

Best Friends Until Retcons!|
One of the biggest losses after the Great Supergirl Retcon Distaster of 1986 was the loss of the friendship between Supergirl and Batgirl. While never utilised like it should have been it had its moments. In light of the post on noscans_daily about female friends in comics I offer something more wholesome and heartwarming. Also I bring news that Supergirl will team up with the new Batgirl in Worlds Finest #3 at the end of the year.

Avatar has approached several well-known comics writers in recent months, looking for fresh takes on the superhero. One result was Ellis's Black Summer limited series.
Christos Gage is now taking a turn at it with Absolution. According to the #0 issue, it draws its inspiration from a friend of Gage's who left the police force. Gage's friend told him that in his daily life, he dealt with a variety of criminals who he was legally prohibited from touching for one reason or another, and that he knew, sooner or later, he was just going to shoot one of them.
Absolution is about a superhero named John Dusk, who is essentially a superhuman SWAT cop; he's called in to deal with rogue "enhanciles." #1 is a flashback, showing the first time Dusk - suffering from post-traumatic stress after seeing several horrifying crime scenes - voluntarily crosses the line.
While Absolution is somewhat tame by Avatar's standards, it's still a gory book. I'm not showing the worst bits, but after the cut, there is still a dude who's been dismembered. That's your warning.
( five pages after the cut )

Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, Appendix 2: Scrooge & Family|
It's been a while, I know, but finally -- here is the fourth and final installment in my "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" series! If you remember, the first two posts covered Scrooge's rise from poor showshine boy to the World's Richest Duck, as chronicled in Don Rosa'a magnificent twelve-part epic, while the third post (the first of the two appendixes) examined his stormy romance with Glittering Goldie O' Gilt, as told in additional comics by Rosa -- and of course by Carl Barks, Scrooge's creator.
In this second appendix, we'll take a closer look at the one thing Scrooge didn't get to really experience until he was an old duck, namely family, and how he finally got to be properly part of one.
( Meet the ducks behind the cut! )

Say, that Demon looks familiar|
Here are two Sunday PRINCE VALIANT pages from December 1937. The word "epic" has been so trivialized that it's hardly useful anymore. Maybe it should be retired for a generation until it regains some of its power. In any case, PRINCE VALIANT actually was an epic in the original sense. Looking over Harold Foster's gorgeous art and getting into the solid storytelling, I'm struck by how well-done it was and how it was just one of a dozen strips you could read every week as part of your newspaper. It looks as if newspapers are declining fast and may soon be just a minor curiosity to a relative handful of readers. But certainly, as far as Sunday comics go, newspapers are just a faint echo of what they once were.
So. The young and idealistic Val is trying to prove himself to the knights at Arthur's court and he applies himself to ridding the land of the oppressive "Ogre," a lord who rules his turf through terror. Catching a goose, Valiant fashions a disguise from its body....
