Came across this today and it amused me - obviously a joke on DC
Storm — Barry Windsor-Smith
Storm and Forge the couple who were meant to be - and the couples that got me into comics.
why must you hurt me like this
I hadn’t read/seen this as someone who didn’t meet there bio dad until my late 20’s - this just hit me right to the heart. Where is tis from - I might need to pick up this storyline. I also didn’t know Dinah was - I quit BOP a while back.
two out of five female characters

I’m going to confess - I saw the art and didn’t get it and I didn’t pick up the 1st few issues of Ms. Marvel., but I kept reading about the book…and people loved the character, so I decided to try it and bought the last 2 issues. I totally get it now. Kamala is a great character, there are parts of her most of us can relate to. She’s about identifying who she is, and how to be true not only to herself but to her family. I’ve added this to my pull list and I’m hoping I can get the 1st three issues in the series- this character deserves to exist and to inspire. For the 1st time in awhile I have a book I feel I can share with my son - that is written for both of us.
DC Comics house ads
Well - they don’t speak to me directly but…I may not be the type of person they are trying to appeal to….
When do you think it will stop being the new 52 and just be DC comics?

As the guy who never seemed to do things we’ll enough or get the recognition I wanted growing up from my stepdad. I never felt comfortable asking for it so I so get Rory here.
If you’ve been following my blogging for a while, you may have noticed that I tend to get into social problems with the comic book industry quite a bit. I’ve made a number of posts to date about the modern comic book industry’s startling behind efforts in dealing with race, sexuality & gender, and with mental illness & disabilities. These are issues that I feel strongly about and I want to see change for the better, particularly at my once-preferred comic “house”, DC.
Also if you’ve followed my blog, you probably know that I spend quite a bit of my personal time with my family — especially my grandmother — and watching shows such as Modern Family and The Golden Girls. And you probably have heard me talk, almost endlessly at this point, that I have several outreach programs I work at, home and abroad, where I work with children either as a friend & mentor or as a tutor & teacher.
I respect age groups a lot as a result, and it leads my personal priorities as far as activism is concerned to not always line up with the common ones here on Tumblr. I am hugely anti-ageism, it is my main concentration and a perspective I hold to in everything I evaluate and consume. I’m incredibly aware of it, and the serious problems with it at DC right now, but we don’t see this discussion as often among the fandom.
Well. Let’s start it.
this is a lengthy blog- but the point of a blog is to say what you need to and I agree with Renaroo de aging and changes to character have hurt many things, but I think the real loss is it has created a line that truly feels like it has no history…and while there may not have been “heroes” before there was a world. I think that’s the advantage Earth 2 holds over the normal earth of DC - Earth 2 feels as if it has history and depth and people and things came from a pre-existing world. while the heroes are younger - there is an older Batman, superman was a generation before as was wonder woman. Catwoman has had an adult daughter - the older characters exist as a training and start point for the generation that stars now.
I love this… - it’s such a need little gif
This is David Finch drawing Killer Croc. this same year he had an SDCC panel which was just him taking questions from the audience it was one of the most enjoyable panels I’ve sat through.
During the panel he talked about his kids. I asked him what he reads to his son and he said one of their favorites is Bone. I had never read or picked up a bone book, but I took one home to my son and a fan was born.
That’s the best thing about con’s talking to and getting to hear the artist talk about their work and what they do and how.
