“You haven’t lived until you’ve covered two sketchy dudes in goop, Cass. I know what I said, okay? Sheesh.”
This – I live for this. My two favorite friends from comics, together, bantering – and they sound like the old friends who have known each other for years, just like I loved them in the old continuity. It’s such a funny moment but also such an adoring moment.
Kumota Haruko has just announced the publication of an artbook for the 6th January, with drawings based mainly on the stories Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū and Fune wo amu. She says this will not be BL focused, and that she’ll try to publish a BL art collection in the future.
On the cover appears Kikuhiko, and she says that “since he seems a bit cold, you should take him home as soon as it’s published”. ;)
I’m really gonna miss A҉͈͇n̲̫̳̯͈͞t̩̳̻͡i̜͉͈̠̗͈. Even though at the end there everyone was freaking out and wanting jack back, it was really an amazing thing he did. All the hard work he and robin put in, it’s truly something that must be appreciated. And to just have it end, not even the next day, but the same day, with only a maybe on future appearances, it’s kinda saddening to me.
I had hoped at the very least there’d be a glitch at the end of his Happy Halloween vid saying A҉͈͇n̲̫̳̯͈͞t̩̳̻͡i̜͉͈̠̗͈ would be back, but it really is over.
I guess it’s understandable, considering all the work that had to be put in for just a month of him, so any longer would probably be a bit harder.
But hey, maybe we will see him later on, like jack said, as little Easter eggs here and there, so there’s hope for that:)
“Girls. I am sorry. This is a poor than you for your courage and valor. But I’m afraid this is a fight I have to make alone. Stephanie, you have the heart of a lion, in every way that matters. You had the strength to resist the darkness where I did not. Tiffany, your day will come. Don’t be afraid of your intelligence. I believe you will outshine us all. Cassandra, you came through Hell and made everyone you met stronger and better. You are the person I most want to be.”
This is another good moment, so emotional and heartfelt, and of course it once again focuses on the relationships that bring most people to read this comic to begin with. It focuses on Barbara and the girls who carry her legacy, the family she has made in this dystopian future. And it’s complete with little nods to characters’ histories like how Steph helped pull Babs out of the dark in “Flood” storyline of her own series, or how Cassandra spent her time as Batgirl with a full facemask but still showed so much emotion and openness.
It’s good stuff.
It’s the kind of stuff I’d like to see an entire issue consist of. But well. It didn’t.
