Mr. Miracle's funeral, Justice League America #40|
I had a request in an earlier JLI post I did for a page of Superman and Batman talking after Mr. Miracle's funeral. Naturally, I can't just do the one page, because the whole funeral is so awesome. Six pages of a 22-page comic, plus preview (plus a few non-comic images), not my scans.
So yeah, starts out with big fight with Despero, which J'onn ends...
BTW, this seems as good a post as any to throw this out there. It didn't strike me back in the 80s because I hadn't seen the movie, but now that I've got both the first JLI trade and the Omen series box set, I'm wondering if deMatteis modeled his Max Lord on Sam Neill as the adult Damien Thorn? Check it out:
What say you, s_d? Do we have a match?

Living with SIN (part 2)|
Previously, I posted about how Dinah went to Asia to learn to be Shiva and instead remembered who Black Canary is. She also met a little girl named Sin who was going to be trained as the next Shiva. Dinah instead brought her back to the US as her daughter. Here I post Sin's next four (and last) appearances in Birds of Prey. From #96, #98, #100, and #109.

No DOOM, only SIN (part 1)|
Sorta continuing my previous posts of cute kids from the DCU.
I like Sin and thought there was a lot of potential in her and Dinah's relationship. I definitely hate what happened to her and the apparent reasons why. I thought I would go through Sin's brief appearance (12 issues in all) and subsequent disappearance. Warning: this post contains an amazing amount of Dinah being awesome and badass.
From issues #92-#95 of Birds of Prey (collected in TPB Vol 5: Perfect Pitch) There are a lot of scans here, but I don't go over the 7 page rule for any issue.

Help finding some Oracle art?|
A few days before THE GREAT DISASTER, someone posted some pages from a comic that had really great art of Oracle. I'm fairly sure I own the comic and just hadn't read it in a long while, and I've been trying to find it now, but I don't know where to look.
I remember it being Oracle with short hair and I think the rectangle-shaped glasses. Ring any bells?
( Under the cut is a picture we really need here. Behold: The Birds of Prey! )
