chest eagle

Stench of the Unburied

Incoherent but functional
Speeding like a dead comet
Purple crushed-velvet waistcoat
Flecked with Maalox and bits of dried vomit
Say what you will for the effort
You can’t fault the technique
Still conscious at sunrise
For the third time this week
But when the blue lights flash
I know we’re going to crash

And outside it’s 92 degrees
And KROQ is playing Siouxsie and the Banshees

Blaupunkt in the dashboard
Cracks in the cylinder block
Heading up the Golden State Freeway
Toward Eagle Rock
Ice chest full of Corona
And Pineapple Crush
It’ll take 20 years
For the toxins to flush
And when the sirens wail
I know we’re going to jail

And outside it’s 92 degrees
And KROQ is playing Siouxsie and the Banshees

Follow the flame to freedom
The flickering lights of armageddon
Find the foot of the ladder way down in the pit
Keep climbing forever
Try to keep the torch lit

And outside it’s 92 degrees
And KROQ, the Rock of the 80s, is playing Siouxsie and the Banshees

Your aarakocra doesn’t have to be beige! Here are some pictures from around the web of amazing specimens to inspire your designs. They all can puff their head feathers to look cool.

1. Bateleur eagle - Impressive color scheme

2. Phillipine Serpent Eagle - Distinctive crest and dotted chest.

3. Phillipine Eagle - Endangered fellow with silvery eyes and a huge mane.

4. Secretary Bird - Unique looking, both because of their ornamental feathers and long body, and their taste for battling snakes.

5. Bearded Vulture - Enormous and magestic. Not so reliant on carrion as their relatives, as it also hunts.

I think Wonder Woman's Rebirth costume is the best she ever had. It keeps her overall classic look and color scheme (I think a "WW" chest logo over an eagle and gold over silver in trim works better for her), slices off unneeded details (the stars and neck-brace) and adds in sensible Greek armor elements via the battleskirt and armored boots. I hope it becomes cemented as her new "classic" look of all time. Is there anything of her costume you like or dislike? What's her perfect costume to YOU?

I like it, though I don’t know that I’m totally satisfied either. The problem is that she really should have pants, with how many times DC’s toyed with the idea and continually pulled back, but I’ve yet to see a version of that that really works, since it’s always a sharp cut from armor to regular tights, but putting her in more armor feels off too. I’ve wondered for awhile if perhaps, like Batman on occasion, she should have a few ‘main’ costumes. Maybe the current suit for her more mythical adventures and time on Paradise Island, other getups for certain missions or in certain areas in the world the way the recent volume of Sensation Comics suggested, and something more traditionally superheroey for her time with the League, like what Wonderous Man of Earth 11 wears:

Has anyone ever drawn a version of that suit for Diana? I’d be curious to see what that’d look like, since I like it a lot.
