Nightwing #149

Posted in All Blogs, Comics, Nightwing with tags , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2008 by Mao

As expected, this issue was A-MAZING!

The basic plot (and spoiler) is that Nightwing fights against all of Batman’s famous rogues gallery, which were created by Scarecrow’s fear serum. The fear serum was injected in prior issue, which was coated on a bullet Two-Face used to shoot at poor Nightwing :(
… lots of drama-lama,… Nightwing’s too late to save Carol; who gets shot by Two-Face.

rofl.

Nightwing fails once again.
PHAIL!

Anyway, this issue had tons of Kill Bill-esque ultra violence.
Which I thought was pretty damn cool :]

But I didn’t really dig the art too much.
I’ve seen better, and it should’ve defiantly been better since it’s an amazing issue.

I’m trying my very hardest to get her into American Comics, because that’ll mean she’s buy tons of TPBs! … which I’ll get to read :]

On with the post…

… maybe,… just maybe, he should leave the jokes to Joker.
There’s a link with the death of Jason Todd, which gives this issue another brownie point.

Ahhh~, and this issue’s pretty touching too :'[ Because of the serum, Nightwing’s seeing things, and in one of his delusions he sees his parents falling. But Nightwing saves them in a nick of time, and says…

[I’m sorry I can’t be butt-fucked to scan this…]

“Is this my mom and dad holding tight to me? No. Of course not. But it sure feels good to be together again even if it’s only a figment of my imagination”

Baaaaaw D:
I bet he’s gonna get hooked to drugs after this.

And yea, Carol gets owned.

blah blah blah,,,
After Two-Face, Harvey, found out she died, he goes on a bitch-fit and shouts that Nightwing was supposed to save her from his alter ego.

… :/
Didn’t like the ending of the issue too much. It continues onto #150 of Nightwing’s crossover with Batman R.I.P., which might I add that there’s barely any links with thus far.

*****

omg guys, I just wanted to add; Thanks for viewing my blog! :D
On 2nd October I had my highest view of 210, which motivates me to keep on mindless-blogging! And the awesome thing is that I enjoy doing this, so yay for me (and maybe you) xD

<3~!

The moment of relief; Nightwing!

Posted in All Blogs, Nightwing with tags , , , , on October 1, 2008 by Mao

It has been rumoured that Nightwing was getting cancelled after #150!

Only recently picking up his series, as it was the right timing to join the bandwagon!, I was pretty bummed.

But yea, a sigh or relief after seeing the cover of #151

Anywayyy,
Checkit!

Nightwing has saved New York City from Two-Face, but that doesn’t mean that he’s saved himself – or that Two-Face is through with him. Nightwing will be forced to confront the madman in Arkham Asylum then face dire changes to his personal life as he deals with the aftereffects of “Batman R.I.P.” and makes the ultimate leap!

And I can’t WAIT till I get my hands on #149 tomorrow; Nightwing vs. all of Batman’s famous rogues! Fucking screwed, but should be uber fun to read!
I’m soooo excited for it, it’s almost schoopid. But can’t help it!
You can download the sneak-peak, but I’m not going too! :D You know why?  Coz I want it to be a surprise! ^_^

I seriously hope it doesn’t turnout crap, and rock-bottom my expectation.

Over and out.

I foresee a Retard Spazzing in Period BlOoOoOd!

I couldn’t help, but laugh, in the last panel of Nightwing #147.

Seriously!
He suddenly realizes it’s his own blood; falls on his back, writhes in sudden agony and has a seizure.

And to add the cherry on the top, in the beginning on #148 he’s pimping! Minimal blood, in some scenes NO blood at all with sexy cuts in his costume.

I guess he’s used to getting shot at by now. -_-”
I swear, in the whole DCU he’s been shot at the most!

The smallest of things bothers me, as well as generating lulz.
I still love you Nightwing! <3

Ohoh! Just mothafucking checkout the last panel of #148!!!

I seriously can’t WAIT till the next issue! Imagine how awesome it’s gonna be!!! OH EM GEE~~~!!! … But weirdly enough *ahem*, the first thing that popped into my head was “holy shit! Who’s gonna save him?!”

I guess we aren’t used to him kicking some major ass.

Btw, I’m loving the artwork!
I also love Titan’s artist.

Titans made me love Beastboy! I thought he was pretty lame in Teen Titans.
I guess he stands out more, and (seems) is waaay more hilarious in a group full of hard-asses.

I really enjoyed the first issue yanno?
So far it’s been good, not very, but still enjoyable :D

But whats been bothering me is that Roy hardly gets any Roy-time! He gets like two things to say in every issue, and hardly gets any of his own panel. I mean, him at Dick are so hilarious together! But so far Dick’s been really strict and Roy’s really boring.
:/
Wouldn’t it be so adorable if Lian came to visit the Titans?! xD

And they made Wally gay!

(Click for bigger)

Who knows what he might’ve said if Donna didn’t cut him off! >_<
Me no likey :(

lmao, and I found two English errors in the dialogues.
They should get a proper proof reader; e.g. Me. Hire me DC :D

The ending of this issue was nice; in a corny way.
“Bee-eff-eff 4eva bitches!!!”

I hope Donna’s costume stays that way. I hate her ugly red-stared one! Why does she need two costumes anyway?

LMAO! I just noticed that all the guys (except for Nightwing who’s mesmerized by Cyborg’s dildo head) are staring at Starfire’s nugga-nuggas!

Geeks: at the Speed of Light

Posted in All Blogs, Comics, DC Comic, Marvel, Nightwing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2008 by Mao

I swear,… some comic book geeks are FAST.
Maybe they have a personal Transporter. Maybe a special ability, like Deep Tunnel. Or just maybe some are meta-humans and are speedsters.

I DON’T BLOODY KNOW!

The last two (uno y dos) blog entries I made has me being uberly excited about the release of Nightwing #147.

God, I was SO excited.

In Hong Kong, new comics are released on a Thursday. But on Wednesday a typhoon came and all business were closed. So this week, new comics were released on a Friday.

On Friday night I went to my comic book store. Skipping with awesomeness as I was getting closer. When I get there I found out that Nightwing #147… WAS SOLD OUT!
I was like “oh… it’s okay, I’m chill. I’ll go checkout the other store”
The other place is just two storey down, so I fast walked there not only to find out that it was SOLD OUT as well.

I was/am majorly pissed off.

There are only two comic book stores in Hong Kong, and Nightwing #147 was SOLD OUT at both places. They said they’re gonna re-order, and will be here in 2 weeks.
I’m so tired of waiting.

See, I went to the store at 8pm. Both stores opens at around 3pm. So it 5 hours ALL copies of Nightwing #147 that existed in Hong Kong were sold out. Bloody hell, how is that possible!!!
Maybe I need a higher level of geekiness to have my own teleporter!

TEACH ME HOW TO GRIND FOR MORE EXP PL0X!

ugh…

./rant

But on the awesome side I found The Flash #228, which is a crossover with Nightwing! I have yet to read it x]
I also bought Marvel’s Kick-Ass #3, which I was planning to buy after reading it’s summary on Marvel’s site… And I thought the summary was exaggerated, but gosh, it’s totally AWESOME!

Kick-Ass is about a comic book fan (v. geeky) who decides to dress-up as a superhero to fight crime. But the cool part is that it’s set in this world, so no superheroes exists! And it’s fairly realistic; the main character gets beaten-up shitless and does good deeds to get laid.
Anyway, he gets super interweb famous after he posts a video of himself fighting muggers.

And he gets free boobies!

Kick-Ass #3 ends with him getting beaten up by people who he tries to “set things straight” with. And enter!, a nine year old girl who duel wields katanas! … and she pretty much saves his ass.

Mmm~, gotta love ultra violence!

Even though this was the first issue of Kick-Ass I have picked up, it was easy to catchup and an enjoyable read! VERY enjoyable. So pick up an issue, because you won’t regret it! :)

<3!

…ohohoh, and duuuude! The second store I went to, which isn’t my usual comic book store, gave me a free badge!
It has Lex Luthor on it, and says “VOTE LEX 2000”. I can pin it onto my school bag :3
Hah, I’m so going back there for more freebies!

Up, Up and Away! … then Down, Down it goes…

Yesterday was an awesome day. But not today :(

As I mentioned in the last part of yesterday’s entry, I was like waaay looking forward for Nightwing #147 and a TPB I ordered. But OH THE TRAGEDY!, no new comics were released at my comic book store!

side note: It takes an extra day for new comic release in Hong Kong.

Because of the typhoon which skimmed past Hong Kong on Wednesday , all business was closed… therefore the boxes of comic goodness was still at the airport this afternoon. Dude, it wasn’t that bad…. I mean like sure, the wind was knocking all the trash cans over and the rain flooded the rural areas, but come on! ugh, I love being so selfish.

But I’m a REALLY lazy fucker, so it takes great commitment for me to go ALL the way to the comic book store. And it opens at like 3pm, and all the cool cartoons starts around 5pm so I gotta go real quicky.
ahaha I read what I wrote, and I hate myself! :D

So while I was there, I did buy Titans #3 (grrr they didn’t have #2) so I’ll be kinda up to date when issue 4 comes out on the 27th! *high-five* I also grabbed the last copy of Final Crisis: Rogue’s Revenge #1, which I have yet to read.

And I also wrote a list of Nightwing and Flash issues to buy. But sadly, there weren’t any left. The issues I wanted were all Nightwing/Flash crossovers! :( I hate it when people think like me (or when I think like people)!
I wanted issue #211, and it would go something like…

*Me flipping through comics*
#208
*flip*
#209
*flip*
#210
“omg, I’m like so sure they’ll have #211 since they had the previous 3 issues”
*flip*
#212

Evil organised comics put in numerical order to fool me!
That, my children, is one evil motherfucking way to raise someone’s hope. And then to crush it with the mits!

… and yea, that happened to like every single issue I wanted :)

*le sigh*

But a good thing did happen! I really enjoyed ready Titans #3! I loved the first issue, and thought Judd Winick got lucky. But now I think I really like his stuff? and even though the artist is different from #1, the art’s still top notch.
I’m Lovin’ It! (sue me -_-)

***

From here on, it may contain spoilers and traces of nuts.

So just don’t read from here onwards if you’re allergic to nuts.

OK, so what you need to know about this issue is that Wally’s a wanker and you’ll get a massive urge to kick him in the arse. BUT that’s not the Wally we know, because he’s a cutie sweetie pie guy. Mmmm, pie guy~ *drools* Raven and Beast Boy goes on a bitch fit and they start fighting each other, yadda yadda yadda. And it turns out that they were acting “out of character” because evil people gave them cooties.
I air quoted, because I think the way they acted in this issue’s how they feel about each other, but was multiplied by like 14.8ish.

There’s waaay more to this issue, I just don’t wanna type it all out because I don’t want DC’s sales to go down… and I hate typing summarise. So go buy it folks!

Anyway, there’s this steamy scene where Nightwing and Starfire are having sex.

For your viewing pleasue, click for bigger.

That fucking guppy-like skank!

That’s like… soooo un-professional Dick! And I like super duper deny that Dick still has feelings for Star coz he like SOOO got over her years ago, and is like in-total-love with Michelle! (I’m destined to direct a chick-flick movie)

So to wrap it up, I’m a fat ass that already ate 1K calories before dinner that’s going to go read a comic book.

Toodles!

To-mo-row I’m getting…
*chants* Nightwing issue 1-4-7, Nightwing issue 1-4-7, Nightwing issue 1-4-7, */chants*

yay!

Today was full of DC-awesomeness!

Posted in All Blogs, Batman, Cartoon, Comics, DC Comic, Nightwing, The Brave and The Bold with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2008 by Mao

FOUR awesome DC Comics awesomeness happened to me today.
and I didn’t even buy any comics!

Plus, I was indoors for the whole day. Yay! A typhoon was passing by Hong Kong, and it was MADNESS outside.

So how was I granted DC Comics awesomeness even though I was up to my geekerky for the whole day?

1.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold!

I guess it’s aimed at little kids… but dude, it’s awesome. Just watch the trailer all right?!
Was it awesome, or was it AWESOME?!
Basically, Batman teams up with other superheroes every episode. Not just Blue Beetle, Ollie without his beard and Elastic Man. But also with Jonah Hex (wtf, didn’t see the coming), Green lantern Corp, Flash etc. (crossing finger for Nightwing!)

and dontcha just love the music? It’s like those 70s/80s lounge songs. And strangely, the first thing that came in mind was Cowboy Bebop and Lupin the 3rd.

So uh… the first DC awesome thing that happened to me today was finding, watching and enjoying the trailer of Batman: The Brave and The Bold.

2. and 3.


and

I ordered DC shirts from Animation Shops!
… well I technically didn’t, because they don’t ship to Hong Kong *shakes fist*. So I pretty pleased my brother (with a cherry on the top of course) who lives in Japan, to buy it for me! And guess what, IT WORKED!

I’m OVER THE MOON!

I wanted The Flash shirt for SO long, but the other site I was planning on purchasing it from only had XL. I was mega bummed. But then I came across Animation Shop. So yay for me!

But my brother tends to take his time to send parcels… so I won’t be expecting it anytime soon.

I’m still happy tho :D
*does the happy dance*

4.

I finally convinced my mom to buy me Batman: Gotham Knight on Amazon (Japan)! … and it’s the Japanese DVD version, so I guess the menu’s in Jap but everything else is the same as the English version?

I hope so.

I would’ve bought it at HMV/CD shop, but I couldn’t effing find it! I went around most DVD shops I know the day it was released, but they didn’t have it. I went again next week to check, they didn’t have it. The week after that, nada. I must’ve appeared severely lame.
Yeah, I was annoyed. They had the new Birds of Prey DVD, but not Gotham Knight.

Ok, in a nutshell; it’s six Batman adventure in six different art style. Imagine Animatrix, then throw Batman into the picture,… and take away the whole Matrix story.

Tell me that doesn’t look hardcore!

I’m hoping that it would be great! It looks awesome, so I’m like 80% sure it’s gonna be brill!

And guess what I’m looking forward to tomorrow!

I’m going to my weekly visit to the comic book shop! *does happy dance again!* :D Hopefully the TPB I ordered is there, and along the way I’ll pick up Nightwing #147.
Hey, I thought it would be an awesome timing to jump into Nightwing monthlies. It’s a 4 issue Batman R.I.P. tie-in, and Two-Face probably plays a big role by the look of the cover!

and in #149, he fights against all of Batman’s rogues! It’s gonna be insane! and awesome!

I’ll also pick up Final Crisis: Rogue’s Revenge #1 for the sake of Flash. Hopefully the comic book store still has some left! :x

Awesome count: 9
I shall refrain from using that word in my next post.

This is why…

I love Nightwing.

… and you should too. :)

You should checkout Philip Tan’s Deviantart. But this one’s the most amazingest by far.
I hope it’s going to be used for an issue cover, crossing my finger for a Nightwing and Flash crossover (notice the lightening?)… but I highly doubt it. But nothing wrong with wishful thinking.

GREAT NEWS FOR WALLY WEST FANS!
Even though Barry Allen came back and is probably “becoming” The Flash again, Wally isn’t going no where! My worst case scenario was Wally dying, and Barry replacing him. But thankfully that’s not happening.
And Wally’s costume is getting a makeover!

Are there any changes in store for current Flash Wally West’s costume? “I’m redesigning Wally West’s costume right now, and it’s terrifying.” While Sinestro’s costume, with its seemingly random blue color and “jester collar,” was ready for a redesign in Van Sciver’s eyes, “Wally West is the most perfectly designed costume ever, aside from Green Lantern’s costume, in my opinion.” Van Sciver said the challenge was to redo the costume without either making it less cool or more cool than Barry Allen’s and thus implying that one character is better than the other.

You can read the full thing here.

Ahhh! OMG, I’M SO EXCITED!!!! x)))))))
I really hope Wally’s new costume’s cooler than Barry’s old Flash costume! And man, now I have to follow the Final Crisis story! I don’t like big tie-ins and major events, but I seriously need to know what’s gonna happen (Buy FC #3 on 6th Aug)!

You can read my other blog on Return of Barry Allen.

Gosh, I can’t sleep tonight! o.o
