Yeah, I know. *sighs*

Still, I slept a lot and I'm feeling better today. Still not 100%, but more of a general slightly-off rather than periods of 'omfg I feel like shit whyyy', so! :3 Pretty happy with that.

Got a new USB, and spent some time setting that up, too! It's going to be a USB dedicated to portable programs, because the fuck not, right?? (I made sure to get USB3.0 for it, so might as well take advantage of it...)

Also went for a walk with Mama, which was nice! It was pretty gross out when I got up, but by the time we were walkies it was almost warm, which was pretty great. :3

Tomorrow: more homework, and class. Also I get to clean the fridge out and start moving things around to suit my personal whims, which'll be nice. >D

I mean, there were a lot of Wildstorm books. And remember I said it was a pirate ship? The world-building was all over the place. I had to sit down and write a fucking cosmology for this project.

According to Kodansha Comics, this is a series for those who are fans of Steven Universe, so there you go.
Frankly, I say you'll probably like this if you like some abstract stuff.

The first chapter is available to read for free, thus the amount of pages below. Feel free to check them out on the site here though.

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.

JerryLewis_117_00

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.

Today was Visiting People day. Which, okay, I know it's a thing you do for the whole, you know, social bonding thing, but PEOPLE and I still feel like crap and ugh.

(It wasn't even a lot of people, I'm just terrible at this kind of thing.)

My parents are going away on Tuesday, for three months-ish, the lucky assholes, so yeah. Visiting people!

Other than that... I've done shit all homework this weekend, which is. Not great!! Gonna have to try pretty hard to get a bunch done tomorrow; I know if I fall behind I'll regret it pretty hardcore!

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.

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."

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.

"Whenever it’s that level of shocking darkness, I think it gets you in the store. But I also genuinely believe that it’s been a really rough year for everybody, regardless of what political side you’re on. It’s a rough time. People are angry at each other. There’s a lot of divisiveness and terror out there about what’s going to happen, and from all corners. Metal is a story that’s about things that keep me and Greg up. It’s about the ways in which you can find yourself in a story that you didn’t think was possible, and it’s much darker than the one that you thought was inevitable." - Scott Snyder

So, today I spent ~2 hours after class hanging out with Awesome Tutor, trying to partition my USB.

Which it turns out you can't do, because Windows is a butt!! Or, I mean, you can DO it, but it's not going to solve the problem I have, which is:
This is probably more technical than most people give a fuck about, actually. )

Anyway, so I'm going to either have to get another USB (likely), or just run MSYS2 off my HD while at home and off my student drive while at uni (also likely). I'm probably going to get the second USB no matter what, so if, for example, the uni student drives crash/get erased/go offline/etc. it doesn't matter. Which hasn't been a problem for me before, but I also almost never touch mine, and I've heard that at least a few years ago was a big problem (which is why tutors have been very much DON'T RELY ON YOUR STUDENT DRIVE when talking about saving/backing up your work).

SO BASICALLY: today has been very ridiculous, in ways that only happen when computers are involved. Also informative! But deeply ridiculous. Computers!!!

'Eye of the Beholder'

cyberghostface: (Two-Face)
 

'Eye of the Beholder' from Batman Annual #14 is probably the most important modern Two-Face story ever written. This was the issue that fleshed out Harvey Dent's origins and redefined his characterization as someone who was already struggling with his psyche before the acid hit. A lot of the material here was later used in 'The Long Halloween', the animated series as well as The Dark Knight.

Unfortunately this has yet to be reprinted by DC, either in trade or in digital format. I imagine the latter will happen sooner or later (Comixology is constantly adding old comics to the archive) but DC's treatment of this has always puzzled me.

'One of the complaints the Byrne Bashers like to dust off from time to time is that I have a "fetish" about young girls crushing on older men. In a forty five year career, this is something I have done a grand total of four times with Mac and Heather Hudson, Lana and Superman in GENERATIONS, Rita Farr and Cliff Steele, and Reed and Sue Richards. And that last one was set in place by Stan and Jack. As fetishes go, not much to write home about.' - John Byrne

I think I have The Sick. Not badly! But enough to feel horrible on and off. (Also I have had two naps today. That is a lot of naps for a non-sick person!)

Class was fine, this morning. Came home and did end up getting some homework done, but - yeah, naps, and out of brain errors, and ugh, pita.

Not sure how it got so late, but I'm guessing too-tired-to-brain-whoops-what-is-time, as fucking usual. Bed now, though. Yes. Sleeeeep.

There’s a thing readers should understand with this book: we’re not doing business in the normal way. There will be no tie-ins until we get back to Earth. We’re self-contained, telling our own story, beholden to nobody, and we’re on a trip out to the far reaches of Marvel Space, and we’re going to come back changed, and carrying something very special with us. -- Al Ewing

'Faces'

cyberghostface: (Two-Face)
 

Continuing Harvey Dent's 75th anniversary is Matt Wagner's 'Faces' from Legends of the Dark Knight #28-30. It's considered by a lot of people to be one of the definitive Two-Face stories. I'm personally on the fence; it's well-written and drawn but Harvey's character and overall motivations are fairly inconsistent with how he's usually depicted. The story might have been served better with a number of other Bat-villains instead. But who knows, you might think differently.

In the beginning, Kara wore a blue frock:

Action-Comics-252-p00

If it looked a bit like a high school cheerleader's outfit (back in the day when cheerleader outfits didn't show much skin and weren't all that tight fitting), that was probably intentional. And this suited her just fine all through high school and most of the way though college. And then, 12 years later, her editors belatedly realized the 60's had brought a sea change in fashion, and things started to get weird. Sartorial madness ensued )

And that is the long and sad story of Kara's closet of super outfits. Maybe someone sensible came along and rescued her from further sartorial shame by stealing all but the hotpants ensemble?

In some cases sadly, in other cases thankfully, we never got to see her wearing some of the other outfits in that closet, but evidence of their existence was preserved:Read more... )

Hi I am very tired, no even more tired than that.

My second class got pushed back an hour, which is good because computers? But I was not expecting it and -

The thing is, it stretches my day to where I start at 8:30 and finish at 4:30, not counting travel time. Which, coincidentally, is the same times as I was working, last job. And since I do have such a large break, I'm actually working for most of it, as well. Which uh yeah, so much stamina eaten. SO MUCH.

I am going to go pass out now and hopefully feel better tomorrow.

August marks the 75th anniversary of Two-Face's first appearance (Detective Comics #66). To celebrate I figured I'd post a few Two-Face comics throughout the month.

First up is Bruce Timm's 'Two of a Kind' from Batman: Black and White.

The Shocker is a Spider-Man villain that is somewhere in the high-B low-A area. Whenever he and Spider-Man fight, he always gives Spider-Man a hard time. Yet he never quite "hit the big time." I used to think that was because he had no connection to Peter Parker or Peter's friends.

Ah, 1970. The "Mod Squad" had been on the air for three years. Over in Britain, "Mod" styles were fading fast, but in offices of DC comics, where "hip" and "trendy" editors were always proud to be in the vanguard of all the latest cultural trends ("vanguard means in the rear, right?"), it was time for Supergirl to get slightly less behind the times, and a new "Mod" outfit was exactly the thing. Creator credits were still too radical for DC back then, but the Internet knows the blame is all on the head of writer/artist Mike Sekowsky.

And that is the tale of how Supergirl hung up her cheerleader frock after, what, 12 years of wearing the exact same thing every day? Something tells me she would have changed things up a lot sooner if not for wanting to avoid a fight with her stick-in-the-mud cousin and his small town Kansas prudery.
