[Mod’s note: you know how you can get the Wonder Woman, Animal Man, or Batwoman graphic novel (among other things)? By entering the giveaway.]

YES. THIS.
(Though if you’re reading Animal Man, you should be getting Swamp Thing, too.  It’s excellent and the stories are related.)

Booth does another redesign for the New 52,Solomon Grundy..I would have liked him to be a little bulkier but all in all looks pretty sick

I’m usually all for redesigns.  Change is good… but I don’t think I love S&M Grundy here.

DC giveth, and DC taketh away.

The good news: DC’s new costume for Power Girl finally closes the much-maligned boob window.

The bad news: DC’s new costume for Power Girl is duller than dirt.

Especially when the internet has already given us superior interpretations along very similar lines.

Such as Joel Carroll's take:

Or a version by Aaron Diaz of Dresden Codak:

Note that, in all three, the elements are essentially the same.  White bodysuit with piping, gloves, tall boots, cape.  Frankly, on paper, it’s not a terribly interesting costume - which may be part of why the boob window was such an enduring feature.

I feel like the only way to make a costume like this work is to have “fiddly bits” somewhere - just some part of it that’s got the extra detail for contrast.  (I guess the best example of “fiddly bits”, just so you know where I’m coming from, is the classic Spider-Man red and blue.  Imagine it without the webbing pattern.  Doesn’t quite work, does it?)

For the official costume, DC has decided to go with weirdly organic-looking metallized boots and bracers, and a frankly-kind-of-off-putting off-center logo as the fiddly bits. Gold… I feel like it really doesn’t show detail extremely well.

The blue in the fan-designed costumes, though… it just pops more against the white.  The fan costumes also keep callbacks to the off-center elements of the classic PG costume- with Caroll’s, it’s the classic capelet, while Diaz uses the gold belt.

This new official costume… it really does solve some of the major issues with Power Girl’s look.  That’s something, at least.  It just does so in the dullest way possible.

Yeah, I know it’s been a LONG TIME since I last updated this blog. Sorry! But, here’s the payoff (I hope!): My latest TV/comic book mash-up, “Law & Order: Super-Criminal Intent.” Hope you enjoy.

About The Shade #1

Ballsy way to end a first issue.  Like Moffat-ballsy.

I wish you the best of luck, because that particular device is rarely done well.

Also: hells yeah Cully Hamner.

Steampunk Supergirl

I’m mostly over steampunk, but, still, this is kind of cute.  Impractical as all-get-out, but cute.

This is a follow-up to my earlier post about race in pop culture, which was really a rant that I’d had brewing and then smoothed into a coherent, non-frothing-at-the-mouth post.

BUT NOW IT’S GENDER TIME.

Women are still a minority in the nerd world, but as it becomes more and more socially…

This young lady just pretty much made a post I wanted to write about female costumes completely obsolete AND she referenced Assassin’s Creed.

Well done indeed.
