After getting shot out of the sky by the Bow of Ra, the Dark Trinity finds itself stranded and separated in the war-torn country of Qurac. While Artemis squares off against her long-forgotten foe responsible for the Bow of Ra’s disappearance, Bizarro comes across a group of innocent refugees looking for a savior. Meanwhile, Red Hood faces a crisis of conscience when he’s forced to relive the trauma of his own death and comes face to face with his greatest enemy—himself!

Teen Titans (2003-2011) #100

“Keep that thing away from Conner and Supergirl. It could kill them, too, remember?”

Well, Tim has his priorities.

No, really. I like how JT Krul’s written Damian. He has interesting relationships with both Rose and Tim, he’s got the cocky pre-teen voice down, but he doesn’t hold back on just how brutal Damian is or how cutting his tongue can be.

Again, Rose and Damian have an interesting chemistry I would have liked to see more of but, alas… stuff :(

AAAAAAAAND it’s once again time for…DC THEME-VARIANT PICTURES!!!!! In this case, following January’s theme of The Flash in celebration of the character’s anniversary (*cough CW TV Show marketing cough*), we follow it up in February with the star of DC’s most successful female-solo title, HARLEY QUINN! 

  1. Action Comics #39 by Nicola Scott, Danny Miki, & Jeremy Cox
  2. Aquaman #39 by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts
  3. Batgirl #39 by Cliff Chiang
  4. Batman #39 by Jill Thompson & CV Painting
  5. Batman and Robin #39 by Emanuela Lupacchino & Tomeu Morey
  6. Batman/Superman #19 by J. G. Jones & Alex Sinclair 
  7. Catwoman #39 by Jim Balent
  8. Detective Comics #39 by Dave Johnson 
  9. The Flash #39 by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts
  10. Grayson #7 by Dan Panosian

And there’s the first batch! Yes, Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts cooked up THREE (Aquaman, and The Flash are shown here, but they DID in fact do three covers for this theme) variants this month, which I guess I understand, they have created a lot of fun Harley-art. Nicola Scott’s Action Comics variant is great,  I always enjoy her work, and it’s complimented by Danny Miki’s inks, and Jeremy Cox’s colors very nicely! Then you have the variant for Batman #39, by Jill Thompson & CV Painting, and it’s STRIKING-ly pretty, fun and detailed! And Emanuela Lupacchino & Tomeu Morey’s work on Batman and Robin #39? BRILLIANT! 

Then there’s Jim Balent’s cover…with HORRENDOUS posing, and facial features, Harley looks like an alien who’s learning how to smile for Pete’s sake!! And what the hell is Selina doing with her leg? Given my past experience with Balent’s art, I’m sadly not surprised…save by DC’s decision to offer him the cover IN THE FIRST PLACE!! Thirty minutes on Skype/Twitter/email, and you could have found at least FIVE other more qualified artists who would be interested!! Argh…

UN COUP DE COEUR NE FAIT PAS MAL.

“Roland est mort incognito, personne ne l'a remarqué. Roland n'était pas connu dans le quartier. Ce n'était pas une célébrité. Ce n'était pas un cycliste qui a gagné le Tour de France après avoir craché ses poumons dans le col du Tourmalet. Ce n'était pas un vieux chanteur de disco avec des croûtes sur le cuir chevelu imputables à des implants capillaires. Ce n'était pas un chef pâtissier décoré de la Légion d'honneur pour avoir fait de son clafoutis aux quetsches un véritable chef-d'œuvre. Roland n'était rien de tout ça. C'était un citoyen anonyme et on a tous vécu à côté, au-dessus ou au-dessous de chez lui sans nous douter qu'il passait l'arme à gauche. Personne n'est venu frapper à sa porte. Personne n'a dit : « Salut l'ami ! » Personne n'a dit : « T'es mort ou quoi ? » Personne n'est venu récupérer des photos, un baromètre en merisier, un vieux caniche qui pue. On était concentrés sur nos problèmes de pou- belles à trier dans une vaste opération d'écocitoyenneté. Roland est parti au ciel. Il s'est fait la malle. Il a dit : «J'me casse.» Il a dit: «Bye-bye!» Il a pris ses cliques et ses claques, et il a plié bagage. Il a vu la lumière au bout du tunnel. Il a dit: «Il y a quelqu'un?» Il a avancé vers cette incandescence chaude et consolante jusqu'à disparaître dans ce halo. On ne l'a plus jamais revu.”
