This is a really nice detail in Flash Annual 1 (I think... it's the one where Wally's back, by Williamson).


Radu's was the caf below Kyle Rainer's apartment in his first series, in the 90s. And that logo? It was designed by Kyle himself.

Mikey is indeed the best character in the book.

I'd go so far as to say that IDW Mikey is the best character in the history of the entire franchise.

No I meant the grumpy bat who appears in that one panel and nowhere else. She's the best.

Someone linked to those old American Express commercials that Seinfeld did with a cartoon Superman(cause Seinfeld is a huge Superman fan) and honestly I'm really digging their take on Superman there as portrayed by Patrick Warburton, like most of the time Superman is the straight man, here him being a bit of a goofball is rather refreshing

It's an interesting and good evolution of Mikey as the brothers' conscience when usually it's just "aw, let's all chill out, guys!" and the others would nod.

All of the TMNT in the IDW continuity have sort of logical extensions and deepenings of their archetypical portrayal like that. Raph being the outside meaning he relates to the outsiders and outcasts like Casey and Angel and epecially Alopex. Leo being the eldest and having the deepest connection to their past life meaning he feels the weight of responsibility and living up to expectations. Donnie's scientific side meaning he's a perfectionist who keeps trying to 'fix' and 'solve' things. Hell, I'm a bit behind but what I've seen you've even got Jen and her growing up on the streets and making lovely choices making her kind of the big sister who wants to stop the younger kids making the same mistakes she did.

This is really weird. I'm reading a collection of 2000AD Future Shocks. Alan Moore has one that is just the ending of the Stephen King short story "Maximum Overdrive". Now I'm wondering who was first...

Those are really fun. I got my wife the entire 2 volume compilation of them, not just the Moore ones, but Moore's definitely were the cream of the crop from where I've browsed.

That's where I was reading them from, and yeah, Moore is better than most of the writers in those. Though I also like the series about the punch-clock space explorer who just wants to get his job done and get paid.

Thanks. The book doesn't date things and I was thinking Night Shift was early 80's so things were completely muddled for me.

I read the Harley Quinn prequel comic, Harleen. It's the first of DC's new Black Label series I'd read and it was interesting to see the limits they put on their "mature" imprint. Like, characters say gently caress, but it's only printed when it's like, "I hosed up!". When characters use it to mean sex, then it still gets the classic comic book censoring. So the word itself is fine, but the sexual connotation of the word isn't.

I liked how it presented Harley and Ivy's early relationship. Especially since the back of the book said that they're gonna get together in Harleen 2. They don't really have a relationship. They get along, and maybe Ivy saw a little something there but Harleen definitely didn't. That feels realistic, that pre-Joker Harley Quinn wouldn't be in a place in her life where the plant lady would be a potential romantic partner. And it also sets up their future relationship better that Ivy might have been attracted to Harleen but didn't try to vampishly seduce her or anything.

But my main criticism is that for a romance comic about Harley Quinn and the Joker written by the Sunstone guy, it wasn't anywhere near horny enough. But that might be another limit DC set, the comic could only be a little horny. And since it was an explicit romance story, maybe the horniness limit was lower than if it had been an action or horror story.

Sejic probably did have some constraints, as you said. We know that DC are OK with some swears and gore in Black Label books featuring the big capes, but we also know Bat-wang is verboten, as is Bat-rugmunching.

Plus he's done a bunch of naughty fanart (nothing truly explicit, I don't think, but definitely risque) so he might have been wary of editors cracking down if he seemed to be going that way. But mostly, I think he's just very serious about his romance stories being romantic but not glamorising messed up stuff.

A new one shot manga by Tatsuki Fugimoto, the creator of Chainsaw Man/Fire Punch. It is free to read and I highly recommend everyone check it out as it incredibly good. The story follows two middle school girls who draw manga, Fujino is popular but kind of a dabbler. while Kyomoto is a technically talented loner. An encounter changes their lives forever.

Probably just being a woman writing a comic was enough. I haven't read her Harley Quinn, maybe there's a panel where Harley is wearing sensible shoes, or is full clothed?
