Randomness Week - Starman|
If we're doing random dialogue week, props have gotta be given to Starman of the current Justice Society title. With a mix of a time-traveler's future knowledge, the inappropriate timing of the mentally ill, and word salad phrasing, he can be a joy to read.
Here are two pages from Justice Society of America #2. Context: Mr. America's dead body has just crashed through the skylight and landed on the JSA conference table in the middle of a meeting; the JSA does not at this point know very much about its new Starman.

Jason and Dick chat|
A moment between these two that doesn't involve either getting their junk punched.
I don't know about you, but I would say this is a clear anti-hero moment for Jason. (And then along came ... well, you know.)
From Outsiders 44 & 45. Eight scans.

Some Shady Goodness...|
There was a plea for more Shade. How can I not refuse showing off such a wonderful character.

A date with Giganta|
In this preview of Wonder Woman #36 Giganta says she's on her way to a date when she runs into Wonder Woman's fist. Speculation is hopeful that her date is Ryan Choi. Here's a quick look at their first date from issue 3 of "The All New Atom."

Nävis Volume 2 - Girodouss|
So someone was asking in another thread for more Euro comics love, and it just happens I have something to share. So without any more hesitation, here's 15 scans out of 47 from Morvan & Munuera's wonderful series, Nävis!
Scans are not mine, but I did the translation. Translated the whole volume, although I doubt I'll end up distributing it to more than a few friends.
NSFW for very young jungle girl running around in a loincloth, but she's not sexualized at all despite the topic of the volume. Also some exo-boobs here and there and a little blood.
( where do babies come from? )

It's the nice ones you have to watch out for: When patient people lose it|
This is cut from Mister Miracle, Volumn 2, #11(22 pages). Scott and Barda settle in the small town of Bailey, Connecticut, trying to have what they think is a "normal" life and so far, it hasn't been so successful. Trying to maintain a secret identity while being attacked by an arch-nemesis, drone clones and various other problems, has pushed scott to the limits of his patience.

For the Book club|
This post is to simply provide the scene central to the discussion for the book club thread. It is from JLA 46 and is the League discussing what to do with Batman, whose plans to disable them was used by Ra's against them. For comments that deal with the content of the scans, I encourage people to take part in the book club discussion instead posting them here. Link to the Book Club post is :
