My latest acquisition!|
I may not like the story much (in fact I'd already given up on the title by this point), but this was a fun cover. Scott Mcdaniel's art has never looked better (before or since) than when he was drawing Nightwing/

Martial Arts Week: Shitty comic, great fights|
Chuck Dixon's 2004 Richard Dragon series was lousy, to be sure, but it definitely had one thing going for it. Scott McDaniel's art, while no one is accusing it of being pretty, has an energy and flow that fit the series like a glove and made every fight a joy to read.
As evidence, I bring you the climactic clash between Richard and Lady Shiva.

Jason in Nightwing: Year One|
Previous posts have already noted that there's a trend in canon retconning Jason has having been more violent, angrier and more of as street punk than he was originally depicted as in the handful of issues Collins was writing him.
One of the most blatant examples comes from Nightwing: Year One, which was published from March to May 2005 – for comparison, Under the Hood's first issue was published in February 2005, though the reveal that Red Hood was Jason was only published in August. I have no idea what the information sharing regarding Jason was at the time between editorial/writers of different title, and thus can't say if Dixon was even aware that Jason was in the process of being revived, much less if there were directives as to how depict him.
Some of these scans have already been posted in tsuki_the_geek's posts of how Jason gained the Robin suit and how his first night as Robin went, but I'm reposting here for the sake of clarity. If it is offensive I'll take the scans down.

My first original art purchase!|
I recently decided to purchase a PWNsome piece of original art and today it came in and I am it's official owner. It should be fairly easy to guess who's part of the art.

Super Robin Boy Wonder|
I don't think I've ever seen this issue of Robin scanned before, or even mentioned, which is...a shame. A damned darned dirty shame. Somebody needed to share this glorious gem. I suppose I'm it.
These scans come from Robin #141, very soon after the introduction of Warlock's Daughter. She contacts Tim Drake for assistance in tracking down Robin so that she can kill him, so that she and Tim can be together forever. But never fear! Tim has a plan. A brilliant, brilliant plan. A plan which requires

Lois: Trusting Wife|
Since it seems to be Clois week I thought why not post a few funny pages from Superman #192. This occured during the whole Cir-El Supergirl debacle (though I do like the character herself). So let's have some fun shall we!
