America's love affair with Patsy Walker lasted over twenty years.From her first appearance in 1944 until her last in 1967, she maintained at least a moderate degree of popularity (enough to carry three titles simultaneously at one point).
The earliest stories, like this, show the series fully realized from the start; no slapstick or forced gags, just simple homespun comedy with the accent on characterization.
This is her fourth appearance, from MISS AMERICA #5, February 1945, which is accredited to Ken Bald(?) and Dan Barry(?). But none of the resources I've consulted seems to be sure.

Why did Black Talon cross the road?|
A wish was expressed for Deadpool meeting Black Talon and for Monty's zombie act from the same issue, and I am here to grant it. So, have six scans from Deadpool #29 (old Deadpool, obviously). Pages not scanned by me, just hoarded.

A new trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum has come out showing what Harley Quinn will look like. And, uh, apparently Harleen shops at Hot Topic. Who knew?

Originally I was thinking not to post from these issues since they're Tomorrow Woman-less but since she's not the only reason I like it I thought, why not? Troika and Anti Matter fun under the cut!

The full creative line-up for DC's next weekly, along with its price tag, has been revealed.
And some more pages of art have shown up here and there online, as well. Take the first page of Dave Gibbons and Ryan Sook's KAMANDI feature, for example, courtesy of DC's blog.
And for those of you who can't read French and are too lazy to do the minor brainwork necessary to figure out the translation from context, the creative line-up's also

Batman threatens an old man. Ah, good times.
Some context after the cut. Batman is fighting a clay man that isn't Clayface.
( Magic clay person that doesn't have a magic lasso. )

Wonder Woman Villains - Doctor Poison|
Before the Great Disaster, I had a few posts covering some of the lesser known Wonder Woman villains. May as well try again.
Doctor Poison was Wonder Woman's arguably Wonder Woman's first costumed/recurring villain (some argue that Ares or Hercules fit that bill).

DOOM hosts a party|
Dr. Doom is entertaining his Asgardian guests at Castle Doom. (Do they know about his deal with Dracula?)
As usual, the politics and table conversations of Dr. Doom are as deadly as his vast arsenal.
Previews from Thor #61, from IGN.com
*edit* And yes, I do forsee a box of **Doom's Homemade Latverian Winkles** coming to the shelves of your supermarket soon.
Gotta have it!

The Black Cat, a great super-hero comic... no, a Western.. or a horror title. Or something.|
Peur evol's much-appreciated post a few days ago about the Black Cat stirred nostalgia in me. I really wish I'd held onto those giant-sized Harvey reprints from 1963, but I see other reprints are available. One interesting aspect of the Black Cat series was its shifting emphasis as trends waxed and waned.
The Black Cat started in August 1941 in POCKET COMICS, then moved over to SPEED COMICS and got her own title, which had a healthy run but which went through some interesting transmogrifications. Publisher Alfred Harvey followed trends as much as any other publisher. When super-heroes seemed tired and passe following the war's end, comics shifted to other subjects. BLACK CAT became BLACK CAT WESTERN for a few issues, easy enough as Linda Turner just started making more Western movies. Then it became a horror title, with Linda's character fading out completely. She came back for a few reprint appearances toward the end of the run, even picking up an adolescent teen sidekick named Kitten. (I imagine someone somewhere has written a story where the Black Cat's Kitten crosses paths with Catman's little blonde cutie Kitten, and the two have hot steamy sex while still in costume.. I mean, if you can imagine, somebody has already acted on it.)
The whole series of transitions would have been complete with a few issues of BLACK CAT ROMANCE. After all, Linda Turner was a gorgeous actress and the stories featured a lot of celebrity caricatures. It would have been simple to play up her moviemaking, relationships with other actors, matchmaking for young naive starlets. But no such luck.

Teaser for new Brave and the Bold Episode - Starring the Huntress|
... and a decidedly lovestruck Blue Beetle
And just wait until you see some of the bad guys!
I love the slo-mo as he watches her in action
Oh, and for legality. we see that Dick Grayson is a smart cookie, even as far back as 1942's Batman #13 he was covering his options in case the Bob Kane gig doesn't work out and he needed a new creative sugar daddy!
And may I say IJ's video and link embedding set up SUCKS!
