What the fuck

Vonn mentions zie really likes this one Babs artist.

Me: Oh, I recognize that art. That’s one of the early BOP artists.

Me: Who was that, again?

Me: *looks it up*

Me: … what

Me: Why the fuck did he start tracing then?

That is actually the great tragedy. He’s very talented, but you never see that work anymore. I was complaining about him to my sister once, and she was confused because he had been that great artist that drew Sojourn. Then I showed her how far downhill he’s gone.

I just

How is this the same artist???

I’ve never understood why he feels the need to trace, because he doesn’t need to. Before he started tracing he drew some of my favorite scenes in BoP and Nightwing:

Look at the sense of movement there. The facial expressions. If he hadn’t started tracing, I honestly think he could have become one of the best comic artists out there.

Birds of Prey - “We made something great here.”

thismomentsforwomenincomics:

There’s so much I love about Birds of Prey, particularly Gail Simone’s run, and there are so many great moments I could mention.

Barbara Gordon, Dinah Lance, Helena Bertinelli and Zinda Blake are all amazing characters with incredible courage and strength, and I could spend paragraphs raving about any one of them. But today I just want to take a moment to appreciate their relationships, as a team and as friends. Because the way they were written, their wonderful camaraderie and the deep friendship these women shared… I miss that, a lot. And it’s something I wouldn’t mind seeing more of.

Harley is a gift from God.

This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!

Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;

The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.

With all the Batgirl fanart going around right now, it seems like a very important time to post some art of Oracle.
The state of women’s costumes in comics is terrible, the new Batgirl costume is nice. 
But there was a price, it was incredibly high, and people need to remember that.  DC wants people to forget that they’ve virtually removed people with disabilities from their little world. They want fans to forget that there were readers with disabilities literally begging the company not to take away their representation, and DC ignored them. So it’s up to us to make sure people remember.

Happy birthday to Dinah! I’ll try to post some Appreciation in honor of her birthday. :-)

dreamrabbit replied to your post:

I think it’s kind of a given in the comic book universes that, special and rare circumstances aside, unarmed and melee combat is never lethal *unless* it’s intended to be. And, while that’s kind of a fudge, I think it pretty much /has/ to be that way, because if it wasn’t- I mean, jeez. How often have the respective members of the Batfamily been concussed, let alone stabbed/shot? And yet they refuse to respond in kind, nobly remaining on the righteous path of blunt force trauma. True heroes. ;)

I agree. And I think - while it may be a stretch - that we’re supposed to believe that the Batfam & co. are such experts that they can calculate the exact amount of damage each of their blows will cause. I mean, consider this scene with Dinah (from BoP vol. 2 #1):

She’s completely in control of the amount of damage she’s causing - even calculating exactly what the recovery time and long-term consequences will be. If she wanted to, we know that she could be far more lethal, but she’s choosing not to be.

Or consider this scene with Bruce and Steph from Detective Comics #796:

Even though, because of a fluke, the results ended up being different, Bruce is able to look at the move Stephanie used and know what would ordinarily have happened.

I think that’s why it’s so vital that these guys never “lose control” in a fight - they have to be constantly aware of what they’re doing and how much force they’re using. I can’t even imagine how hard that must be. They may not be Superman, but if they chose to, these guys could easily kill someone with their bare hands - and they could do it unconsciously. They wouldn’t even have to be trying to kill, they’d just have to lose hold of that perfect control for one second.

It makes their restraint all the more impressive, I think.
