Walt Simonson Master Post|
Walt Simonson has just about drawn every major character for every major publisher throughout the last thirty-odd years. Best known for his work on Thor, Starslammers, Fantastic Four, Battlestar Galactica and Orion, Simonson’s style has always been lauded as having the energy to rival Jack Kirby’s. But just as his legendary predecessor’s work was seen, all of the subtlety in Simonson’s work is often overlooked. Even in the most frantic piece, Simonson manages give it a quiet sense of characterization.
Hell, he just draws purty, OK?
Since I can easily make thirty different posts based on his covers alone, I’ve posted some of my personal favorite comics and covers by Simonson.

The Truth About Poison Ivy|
A bit of Harley/Ivy discussion brought this issue of The Batman Adventures to my attention; it addresses the design change Ivy underwent in Batman TAS, and while it's a really interesting explanation, it's also horribly depressing (to me). In addition, it features Alec Holland, the man who would become Swamp Thing.
A bit of set-up: in the previous chapter Batgirl sprayed Ivy with weedkiller, leaving her weak and injured.

Gotham City Sirens, Who They Are and How They Came To Be, Part 1: Poison Ivy|
With the upcoming series starring Gotham's three most prominant bad girls, I figured I'd spotlight each of them in current DCU continuity, their origins, motivations, what they have in common and what sets them apart. We'll start with everyone's favorite psychotic eco-terrorist, Dr. Pamela Isley, aka Poison Ivy.
Poison Ivy was introduced during the Silver Age, and was typical of the gimmick villains of the time. Her original origin was she was a botanist who assisted Marc LeGrande in stealing ancient Egyptian poisonous herbs. He attempted to kill her with them, but she survived and discovered she was immune to all poisons and diseases. She was a femme fatale with a plant theme.
After Crisis of Infinite Earths, many characters and series had their continuity rebooted or revamped. In Ivy's case, the revamping for the new era was done by a then up and coming writer named Neil Gaiman.
Needless to say, the result was a more complex, not to mention much darker, Poison Ivy.
