Newsarama's Best Shots Comic Reviews:

The double entendre's in that B:BAB song were ridiculous. And awesome.

Bob Harras. Oh boy.

Diabolu Frank said...

Cut & paste from a comment I made elsewhere:

Harras always struck me as Jim Shooter Lite: Half the talent-- half the contentiousness. Still, he's a good writer who gets along reasonably well with artists, so he's a damned sight better than Bill Jemas XL. Hopefully Didio will have less say in things.

LissBirds said...

I loved the Batman title cards...the art direction for that show is peerless. Growing up with that show is what made me think that Art Deco was contemporary.

Mark Waid doesn't work for DC currently, does he?

LissBirds said...

Hee...I finally got a chance to watch the Birds of Prey video, and you were totally right about those double entendres, m.c. I love how characters break out into song on this show every now and then. It's a shame it got cancelled, because I'm starting to like it more and more.

See, I liked the voice casting better for this Huntress, Frank. Young enough yet not too "cute" sounding like the JLU version. Costume looks pretty good, too.

Diabolu Frank said...

I can't recall any major DC work from Mark Waid since 52. I think Didio spoiling the ending pissed him off.

And of course, I didn't mention that I don't like Huntress' TB&TB voice. Peas in a pod we ain't.:)

LissBirds said...


Don't worry. When my plans of World Domination see fruition, you will be assimilated, and these pesky little disagreements will be a thing of the past. That goes for everyone, too.
