The Many Faces of Barbara Minerva, part 7 (Leopard Print Pants)
Well, here we are, after admittedly quite a hiatus, with the final repost of my Cheetah series. This overlaps the prior Pfeifer chapter a lot in terms of publish dates, and actually all falls before the Salvation Run stuff as far as the in-universe timeline goes, but chronologically and thematically it's more recent, it's essentially consistent with the most recent Cheetah, and being the take in JLA, it's probably the one that's going to stick with the average fan for a good while regardless of anything Gail might yet do in the Wondy title, so "current" it remains.

Which is depressing, but more in a mildly melancholy way than the frustrating VU stuff or the outright stupid Pfeifer Cheetah. Because while this Cheetah is still clearly of that same ilk, she's at least got some nuance to her beyond the mindless cardboard sociopath, and a bit of a suggestion of what she once was.

I have no further chapters to promo the way I usually do after the cut, but dedicated Cheetah fans, if there are any left after this tremendous fall from grace, may be interested in checking out the current Grand Unified Theory of Cheetahs, which achieves the extraordinary by reconciling all seven chapters of this series into a single coherent character arc by dint of massive unsupportable fanwank.

Justice League of America 32, and some comments from the writer
While looking for responses to the latest issue of JLA, I came across a compilation of Dwayne McDuffie's quotes.

Two pages from Justice League of America 31, and the story behind them
In the latest issue of JLA, there's a short scene between Red Arrow and Black Canary. Those pages have an interesting behind-the-scenes story to them, as Dwayne McDuffie revealed on a message board some time back.

Interesting choice of locales for a romantic walk... )
