The secret origin of Nuke!

The character Nuke was first introduced during the end of Frank Miller's Daredevil arc "Born Again." Besides a BA-related What If? issue, Nuke didn't make any more appearances for a while.

Then he returned in the beginning of Daniel Way's Wolverine: Origins series, where we discovered his origin.

David Mazzucchelli Master Post

Some of you may know the work of David Mazzucchelli through his late 80s superhero work and some of you may be more familiar with his indy friendly output. It’s a gross overgeneralization but Mazzucchelli’s fan base has always been divided into those two camps (with the occasional gray areas) so I’m sticking to it. The tail end of Batman: Year One and the emergence of Rubber Blanket is about the time that Mazzucchelli redefined himself and, for better or worse, the industry. What’s interesting are the elements that led up to that era and the projects that followed.

Ranging from franchise characters to cover illustrations, this Master Post shows an inkling of Mazzucchelli’s artistic transition and range. This post has also been cross posted over at http://master-post.livejournal.com/4876.html#cutid1 which you're free to "friend" and check in anytime. That link has a bunch more Mazzucchelli art to drool over.

As for the older stuff, don’t judge too harshly…

…you were once young, too. )

Catwoman's Origin: Also Multiple Choice (but some choices are better than others)
Recently, the issue of Catwoman's origin came up. Specifically, the post-Crisis Y1 retcon that she was a prostitute, inspired by "real man" Batman to dress up like a loony and follow in his footsteps, or something; the subsequent Zero Hour retcon to something much better; and the innumerable other retcons that ignored the Zero Hour retcon in favor of Miller's take, only more XTREEM, adding rape, underaged victimization, etc etc.

And since everything is more clear with scans, I thought I'd post those two different takes, so everybody can see the contrast for themselves.
