Batgirl #24, pick it up, won't you? The best mother daughter talk from comics in years:

And Detective #881 was phenomenal as well, almost on this panel alone:

Babs stabs her brother in the eye, and then Jim shoots both of James legs out. And this great scene between Dick and Jim at the end:

    Preliminary MOTW:

    My LCS was giving away free trades of the first 3 issues of Greg Pak's Vision Machine. I'm sure a bunch of places got these, but that's still bad ass. Can't wait to read it after work tonight.

    Far as I know, Vision Machine is just three issues. It's a pretty complete story; I haven't heard of any plans to extend it. So, it's less "the fist three issues of Greg Pak's Vision Machine" and more "Greg Pak's Vision Machine".

    (I got my free copy directly from the man himself at a signing he was doing a while ago. One of the perks of living in New York City.)

    (You should all move to New York City.)

    I did not know that.

    That is even more awesome. Super, super cool.

    What I really appreciate, also, is that the whole thing is Creative Commons. Do you want to make a collage of all the art in the book? Do you want to re-write all the text in the speech bubbles? Do you want to write a short story that uses only the words that appear in "Vision Machine"? You can make all of these derivative works without worrying about someone coming after your ass with lawyers.

    Good Steph. Best Batgirl.

    MOTW was Detective Comics 881, of course. Also grabbed the Cloak and Dagger Spider-Island tie-in, and loved the choice of villain.

    Movin' to NY is the dream, man.

    Also, what the heck is Vision Machine all about?

    Done deal, thanks.

    Edit: God damn it Anti. I'm poor enough!

    I had to read my old singles by candle light the other night cos in previous weeks I'd spent too much money on comics rather than electricity!

    Stop reminding me there's TF comics I should be buying!

    The last issue of batgirl was fucking bittersweet as shit

    Oh, Stephanie brown, please be safe after flashpoint

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    She has been confirmed to still be around, probably as Spoiler.

    She was also in the rumored JLAcademy/Young Justice book as well as Damian, Blue Beetle and a bunch of other awesome characters.

    Young Justice could be like Teen Titans but done right

    That would be nice

    God I loved Peter David's YJ. I was just getting back into comics, and something about that book struck a chord. I'm sad that we never really got to see more of Slobo and Secret

    But Batgirl was great. As good of an ending as we could hope to get I guess.

    Last issue of Batgirl is the moment of the week hands down.

    The bits Texi posted, the montage in the middle, Steph managing to win even while drugged out on space plant, the ending

    Everything

  • MastaPMastaP Registered User regular
    The best was Hellboy: The Fury #3. But the best was ALWAYS going to be Hellboy: The Fury #3.

    Apart from that, Batgirl was charming, but didn't exactly feel like a full story. Detective was an improvement over last issue, but I find James less and less interesting as a villain, even if the end of his confrontation with Gordon was perfect. ASM was more groundwork and needs to move forward now.

    It was definitely a great week though.
