Mix-Mash

Okay. So apparently reading Final Crisis #6 right before going to bed leads to a crazy mix-mash of dreams/nightmares. Considering Final Crisis #6 reads like a crazy mix-mash of dreams/nightmares, this shouldn't be shocking.

(Seriously. When one of the moments used to slow the pace of a book involves the three Flashes, something's gone weird.)

This brings to mind a comment made by one of the guys who works the counter at my comic store a few weeks back, when he realized that Morrison was behind both Batman RIP and Final Crisis: "What, did DiDio just hand the keys to the DC Universe over to a crazy Scottsman and say, 'Here, have fun, and don't worry about scuffing it up'?" My answer (after a Google session confirmed that Morrison is, indeed, from Scottland and not England) was, "That's about what it looks like."

In other news. That Batman: Battle for the Cowl ad at the end. Well, you guys know what portion of it has this little fangirl excited. The thing is, in those style ads, supposedly just about everything is a clue, from where the characters are standing to what each character is looking at to everything else, and the fact that his raised hand covers the good part of his face is a bad omen. I can not even guess what most of the other stuff means, although I'm pretty sure the Batman-with-guns is Deadshot, especially when you consider that he once tried to set himself up as a Batman-replacement.

The actual ad-image behinc cut. )

Edit: Poking around the interwebs, it looks like just about everyone but me seems to htink Batman-with-guns is Jason Todd (except for the ones who think he was the Demon Bat). The two more generic looking Batmen are probably Tim Drake and Dick Grayson.

Using [livejournal.com profile] invisiblemoose's suggestion for something involving Batman. Don't worry, Moose! There are no Care Bears involved!

Respond to this entry with suggestions for tomorrow. Or just comments on the ficlet. I like those, too.

Oh, and the new icon was drawn by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] neverwench. Isn't it keen?

This week: Infinite Crisis #5 (of 7) and Detective Comics #817.

Cut for length and spoilers. )

So anyway, that's my week in comics (if anyone's wondering why I didn't post any reviews last week, it was because I didn't get any new ones last week). Apparently it was a very DC week, but hey, I still enjoyed it.

In an effort to battle the blahs, I did a bit of doodling. Emphasis on dood. Or do I want the emphasis on ling? You know, I'm not really sure.

Anyway, these are just scribbles. They are just intended to be scribbles. I haven't actually drawn anything in months, so they're more a matter of me getting used to holding a pencil again. Done with minimal reference (a men's clothing magazine for a picture of a blazer is about all). Obviously not the cartoon version, although as far as suit goes, I did borrow. Actually, I just borrowed from multiple Two-Faces for this. It's a single picture, but I have three scans of it: first is un-ugly, second is uglified, third has lots more scribbling done all over it.

Three Two-Face scribbles lay behind this. )
