The Opening Defense In The Human Game|
so, the Human Defence Corps.
Currently the unit General Sam "Wade Eiling 1.1" Lane's in command of, they were created under the Luthor administration to be the one armed gov't group gunning after non-baseline threats that was actually public.
( And they know what they're doing, surprisingly. )

Deadpool #17 preview|
On today's show, we will be baking a gigantic disaster souffle. First, take one genuine hero leader, put him in a situation he/she doesn't understand. Next, add one Deadpool... #17 flavor. Add plenty of munitions and knife sharpeners (can never have too much). Presto! Let explode and bring about raw carnage until done.
Make sure you bring plenty of electric fans to cool things off, because the action is hot and the sh*t tends to hit them!
CBR has the full preview.

DAREDEVIL #43: Luke Cage is kind of a jerk.|
I've been hot and cold about Brian Michael Bendis' work. But I've decided to take a look at his DAREDEVIL run with Alex Maleev.
Matt Murdock has found out two things: the Owl is trying to take over the Kingpin's territory with Mutant Growth Hormone *and* the NYPD are trying to get him on tape as Daredevil. So if Daredevil can't do it...
According to Wikipedia, this takes place after Jessica and Luke had their one night stand but before Jessica realized she was pregnant in ALIAS.
( I'm starting to doubt the man-crush theory. )

A smorgasbord of Superdictionary silliness.|
Yeah, have a handful of Superdictionary entries! Always appreciated, I know. I went back through the IJcomm, and I'm pretty sure none of these have been seen on it up to this point, so yes.
( Under the cut are fourteen entries. That is as many as one ten plus four. )

Jason in 'Tec Comics|
I've saved a lot of random bits of Jason adventures in 'Tec Comics over the last couple of years and upon reviewing them, there are some interesting points and foreshadowing, so after #571 was put up, I thought I'd put these up as well. Some of them are on the crisis cusp (just before, just after) so be aware of that. Let's start with what Jason's cape was used most often for:

Birds of Prey #111|
I wrote a script this evening that would let anyone, not just admins, backup Scans Daily.
After asking myself, "What would Oracle do?" I've decided not to share it with anyone. After all, I wouldn't want to share the ability to backup the SD community until everyone has the ability to back up the SD community.
Here's a scan to make this post legal.
( Babs has a boyfriend! )
Peace out, y'all!

Looks kinda like one of them Rube Goldberg contraptions|
Rube Goldberg did not invent the corned beef and Swiss cheese sandwich. (Although many would praise him if he had.) Nope, he was a lifelong cartoonists who created a number of strips (he seems to have come with the "wiseguy answers to stupid questions" before WW I, long before Al Jaffee)and many political commentary panels. But he will be remembered for his infernal contraptions which perform a simple mundane task in a remarkably roundabout and inefficient way. You still see this done in movies, TV and cartoons (PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE had a number of these gags), but they owe their inspiration to Rube Goldberg.

An SD1.0 repost and a genuine "Grail Piece" acqusition!! :)|
Chances are that if you owned ANY DC licensed merchandise in the late 70's or early 80's it either featured art by, or based on, work done by Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez and Dick Giordano, two stalwarts of the organisation, who produced acres of top notch, lovely licensing art.
The art would be used from notepads to action figures, from t-shirts to underoos, and so had to be both simple and stylish, easily reproduced and instantly recognisable. They could hardly have asked for better!
The attached pics are scanned as best I can, and hopefully might bring a little happiness to your desktop should you wish to tweak them that way.
