REVEALED! Batman's one weakness!|
I'm waiting for Alfred to settle this whole Battle for the Cowl nonsense by inviting everyone to the mansion for a nice dinner, then saying if Jason doesn't behave, he'll get no dessert.

More reasons to love the Middleman|
Apparently, most people don't know that much about the Middleman.

Gee, our light-hearted adventures got gruesome all of a sudden|
Woof. VENUS started out as a chipper romance comics, playing up the glamor angle with its star literally being Venus, Goddess of Love. Then it got into science-fiction and then outright horror (That second cover is by none other than Bill Everett) at the end. This happened quite a bit to titles after WW II ended and super-heroes fell away.

The Many Faces of Barbara Minerva, part 5 (Rucka & Villains United)|
It's kind of odd to say, but up till this point, the Cheetah has actually had a certain consistency to her. I mean, obviously, in four different chapters we've had four completely different characters, but every different take on Barbara Minerva has actually followed pretty reasonably from the one before, enough that you can actually trace a coherent thread of development through the whole thing - you can see where WML got his reluctant ally from in Perez, you can track Jimenez' calm mastermind to Byrne's deliberate restoration. There have been wild shifts in character, yes, but nothing truly out of left field (Boy!Cheetah excepted, but he doesn't reflect on Minerva herself). You can always pretty much figure where any given emphasis sprang from.
Yeah, that was apparently too good to last.
Next up, somewhat less annoying but possibly even more stupid: Cheetah as portrayed by Pfeifer, with bonus Jeph Loeb. Because apparently the purpose of this series was to torture myself and then spread the pain to you.

Four Swords+ part one: "My Anti-Drug is Crack"|
(manga: read right to left)
At first, I didn't expect or even try to enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords+ manga. I looked at a few pages out of curiosity and it just seemed so silly and pointless, but...
...somehow I simply could not stop reading. I told myself it's just yet another cheap cashin on the part of a longlived cashcow videogame franchise, yet I can't bring myself to care. I mean, it's a comic about Link! Who is actually four Links! Links who bicker and cry and yell at each other but ultimately learn lessons about friendship and teamwork and fighting over girls, just like a Saturday morning cartoon. And of course despite being in a black-and-white manga, they can only distinguish each other by the color of their clothes, somehow. What's not to love about that? But when I saw there was even going to be a fifth, evil Link as the villain, that was the moment I knew I was hooked. A near-100% Link cast? Can't say no to that.
...And that is why 1 = 4.
On the next Four Swords+...
