Silverhawks #2

Silverhawks #1

I don’t usually link to Comics Alliance‘s cosplay photo articles, but I have never seen anyone cosplay as characters from Silverhawks. At least until now! Although the writer misspelled Mon*Star’s name, it’s a hard one to guess.

For the purposes of this review series I will be using the trade produced by DC Comics in 2008. All week we will be looking at this crossover. Starting next week, the Saturday retro review will be getting to the DC and Marvel crossovers, which in my longbox is in its own section of the crossovers section. I’m sure we all have our own quirks when it comes to how we file our media. Once my video…

Adventures Of Superman #10

When comic art begins, better artists than me start with a rough version of what will end up in the panels. It’s very rough and unfinished. The lettering isn’t always added but here you will be glad. Louie Del Carmen and Bobby Chui put together a pitch for a Superman story in a potential anthology (I’m guessing not Adventures Of Superman, the recently ended one, or he would have said.) While…

Jake & Leon #217: Batmobiling

BW presents Jake & Leon #217: Batmobiling, plus a special announcement!

I'll take an ugly Batmobile over a cool Bat-Tank.

I’ll take an ugly Batmobile over a cool Bat-Tank.

Nolan’s “Tumbler” Batmobile was a bloody tank. Snyder’s Batmobile is a sports tank, which isn’t as cool as it sounds.

I also want to give special thanks to Jerzy Drozd and Rob Stenzinger of the Lean Into Artcast. If you click on the above comic you go to the behind-the-scenes page. There you will find an embedded episode involving Jerzy going over…

How the fuck did DC turn down a Catwoman pitch from the team of Paul Tobin, Declan Shalvey, and Jordie Bellaire? The fact that we’ve had to suffer the current crap instead is a travesty.

This rejected strip is the genesis of the Whiteboard Dingdong Bandit storyline.  It was originally going to be the last strip of the previous story — Joyce comes back to her room late at night, finds a bunch of dicks drawn on her whiteboard, erases them angrily, there’s a beat, and then she returns and draws her own.  
It was a potentially funny idea, but the timing wasn’t right.  I don’t think the timing could have possibly been right in five panels.  There needs to be a much larger gap between her erasing them and returning to redraw one herself.  In a perfect world, I woulda done like two rows and repeat that penultimate panel like a billion times.  But naw, it wasn’t working.  
Plus I then I thought it’d be hilarious if she accidentally drew it in permanent marker because Mike switched the pen out at some point and Joyce freaks out and draws on everyone’s and I extrapolated this whole series of things and OH HEY WHAT IF IT’S PRESENTED AS A MYSTERY
AND AMAZI-GIRL HAS TO SOLVE IT
super best idea
So I threw this comic in the trash.  I repurposed some art from this strip for a new set of strips featuring Mike and Dina, to sort of prop up some potential other suspects before the mystery begins.  I threw those strips in before Amazi-Girl and Dorothy had their interview, pushing that back by two days, and the rest was history.  
Looking back, it’s weird that Ethan was everyone’s number-one suspect for a while, sometimes a close second.  I didn’t set him up as a suspect at all!
