NYCC Recap: These girls made an awesome pair! And as good as their Power Girl & Supergirl are, their Ms. Marvel & Scarlet Witch were equally badass.

I wholeheartedly approve of Vivid Vivka’s Topless Tuesday Harley Quinn! Now show her some love out there on Zivity, Suicide Girls, and Cosplay Deviants!

Detective Comics #35—”Terminal,” part one
by Benjamin Percy, John Paul Leon, Dave Stewart, and Jared K. Fletcher

This is the perfect story to read when half of our nation is terrified of an Ebola outbreak. No, really. It makes it feel even more grounded in the real world than you would expect from a street level Batman story.

I picked this up solely because of John Paul Leon’s art, and damn it was worth it! His thick lines & heavy brush work really give this book an excellent noir feel…something that’s been missing in the main Batman title since the launch of the New 52niverse. And with Dave Stewart on color duty? C’mon…just look at this splash of the plane crash—not a single important character in sight & I want that art on my wall!

I had never heard of Benjamin Percy, so I didn’t know what to expect. This is my Batman—always in detective mode, unable to shut it off even with Alfred looking out for him & trying to keep Bruce focused on being Bruce.

If you don’t normally pick up Detective, grab this issue & next month’s #36. It’s just a two-part story so there’s no heavy commitment…and you’ll thank yourself in the end.

I dedicate this song to Fox & the entire Gotham team at Warner Bros. Television. I gave the first episode 3/5, but the second dropped to a solid 2/5. So much is wrong with the writing and acting…I don’t even care about the changes, it’s its own continuity.

I finally snagged one of these! they aren’t particularly expensive, I just never see them at shows if with collections that come in.

So Gotham happened last night. I think it has promise, but still needs work. I give it 3/5 stars.

I have no problems with the changes, this is its own continuity, but here’s hoping they fix the cheesy dialogue & shoddy characterization (I think Bruce is the only character they nailed). What did you guys think?

One of the arguments behind Starfire’s barely-there outfit is that her powers are fed by solar energy. Since Superman also gets his powers from our yellow sun, cartoonist J.Bone designed a new, less UV-blocking costume for the Man of Steel.

Warner Bros. Wants to Recruit Training Day Writer David Ayer for Their Suicide Squad Movie

Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li—yay?) is working on the script, but remember…Ayres is also a screenwriter and has a much more impressive resume. Hopefully he’ll be taking a swipe at it if he signs on.

Which roster would you like to see on the big screen?!

WB’s Supergirl lands at CBS

Warner Bros./DC Entertainment will have 5 series this season—Arrow (The CW), The Flash (The CW), Constantine (NBC), Gotham (Fox) and later this season iZombie (The CW). In development, they have Preacher (AMC), Scalped (WGN), Titans (TNT), Lucifer (Fox), and now Supergirl (CBS).

I like that they’re spreading it around, but are they spreading themselves too thin?

I feel Gotham will prove to be the weakest link of all. If they had stuck more to a Gotham Central storyline, it could be golden. Instead, they’re choosing a Gump-esq this is connected to this, which is linked to this, oh…and look at all these faces & names that just happen to be this age in this place all at this exact time. AND THEY ALL KNOW EACH OTHER! And also—Fox.
