Once upon a time, DC comics understood that comics don't have to be always serious grimdark heavy drama involving lots of gratuitous violence and rape. That was a good thing, but the less serious comics that DC put out weren't always worthwhile. Today it seemed appropriate to post 8/23 pages from issue 117 of the mercifully forgotten "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" comic, an issue worthy of note today only because it guest starred Wonder Woman in her "mod" phase.

gratuitous sexism and unfunny jokes ahoy )

The past was a different country, one in which it was possible for there to be over 100 issues of a Jerry Lewis comic.

ETA: the last page includes a statement of management and circulation. in 1970, "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" was selling 175,000 copies every month. Do you think maybe, just maybe, going after ever more grimdark crossover events might have been a mistake on DC's part?

Giving this the crack tag, I guess? And the misogyny tag, because Jerry Lewis.

I went up to Chicago a couple months ago and keep forgetting to post this. I spent a day at the zoo and conservatory in Lincoln Park near the lake shore. I nearly didn't bother with the children's zoo, but I ended up over there looking for something else. The trails through it are set up like a woodland trail--sort of narrow and winding through a lot of birch plantings, and covered in bird poo. Near one stand of trees, the zoo had posted a few signs saying basically "yes, we know the paths are messy and please also don't bother the herons above you; those aren't ours."

Apparently black-crowned night herons are on the Illinois state endangered list, but there's been a flock of them nesting in the zoo and somewhere else further south in the park for the last few summers.

Continuing Harvey Dent's 75th anniversary I'm going to be posting a few comics featuring Two-Face by Greg Rucka. I don't know if I'd call him the definitive writer for the character but he gets his mindset and has written for him on several occasions. This was first try at the bat so to speak.

small batch icons is dedicated to the idea that less is more.

Much like how the restriction of a hundred words can turn a drabble into a work of art, so our theory is that a posting limit of five icons makes the selected images shine.

For icon makers, this makes coding posts way easier. Plus, there's the bonus of getting to share icons more often, hot off the press.

For icon shoppers, it's the ultimate in browsing convenience.

The Legend of Korra - Turf Wars

"Avatar: The Last Airbender" and it's sequel "The Legend of Korra" featured some of the best worldbuilding of any cartoon series I've ever seen. The various societies were rich, and complex, and they included their resident elemental powers with creativity and practicality.



One area the cartoon did not expand on was how certain social matters were addressed, and the Korra finale, which showed Korra joining hands with Asami Sato, the woman she loves, as they step into the Spirit World, was positively subversive in showing a blossoming same sex relationship.

Luckily for us.... )

This is from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #24, and an early story by Scott Lobdell with art by Dennis Jensen. Shamrock, aka Molly Fitzgerald, vs. Arnim Zola.
I wanted to repost it since it seems to equate "With great power comes great responsibility" to "Must punch bad guys in the face."

Arnim Headroom? )

About me: I'm still in university (unfortunately) studying something along the lines of environmental science. I was working as a nail technician for a year until recently, so I just work retail now. I kinda lost interest in anime/games recently, but I passively strive to become more fluent in Japanese, so anime will always be in my interests I suppose. ^^

Anime: Cardcaptor Sakura, Noragami, Sword Art Online, Kuzu no Honkai, MÄR, The Prince of Tennis, Sukitte Ii Na Yo, Kimi no na wa, Air, Black Bullet, Danganronpa, Ansatsu Kyoshitsu, Owari no Seraph, etc.

Manga: Honestly, I don't care to read anything, including manga. ;w; The only series I've read in recent years is Strobe Edge because there's no anime of it.

Games: League of Legends (I also follow professional players! My favorite team is TSM and my favorite players are Mata and Hauntzer. I'm a support + Sona main), Overwatch, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, Persona 3 + 4 + 5, etc.

Music: Actually, my main fandom right now is Hey! Say! JUMP/Johnny's Entertainment groups. ^^; But I pretty much listen to anything Japanese; some favorites are Asian Kung-Fu Generation, flumpool, Matsushita Yuya, Miura Daichi, Nishino Kana, and Girugamesh.

I wonder how it got there..

One of them's a monster, Rex-O.

The other's a man, the Scavenger.

Last month's issue #2 ended on the latter.

The focus on him wasn't an introduction- #1'd already done that.

It was an elaboration.

The narrative stepped into his life at night. )

It should be pretentious and snobbish to say: “Sure I eat hot dogs, I have homemade mustard and homemade lingonberry ketchup on it”. Then to take the DIY philosophy serious you have to make the hot dog yourself.

Context sounds delicious!

This one's not a particularly famous story but it's still an interesting look at Two-Face. It first appeared in Secret Origins Special #1.
