REVIVE MY BABY!

omg i feel so bad for neglecting it for THIS long!I’ve got Final Crisis: Rogues Revenge #3 but I haven’t read it yet… coz now i lost it.

But im grabbing an issue of Nightwing #150 and Titans tomorrow, so I’ll have something up by Sunday :]

*le sigh*

Oh yea!,
I won a bet on who the the first Robin was. My friend’s stupid enough to actually bet against me, since he thought the first was Jason Todd. =_=

so ya, bye bye <3

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’m doing a Chloe Sullivan!

Yes, I joined my school’s journalism group for their online magazine!

And guess what? I get to do whatever I want; blogging or podcast. Blogging fer sho!

Much to my geekery, my first article if on American (Superhero) Comics! and my very hard attempt to try getting more people reading it. :)

Please feel free to point out at gramatical mistakes, or rephrase some sentences.

American Comics,
… not just for fat men with orange-stained Cheetos fingers.

Let’s face it, most of you will stereotype American comic book readers as either obese or skinny guys, who live in their mother’s basement and are 40 year old virgins. But after the recent flood of movie adaptations of comic books, the younger generations are now more familiar with superheroes such as; Ironman, Hulk, Batman, Hellboy etc.

What about those heroes still stuck in monthly issues?

Most non-comic book readers are still unfamiliar with characters that are considered as major characters by readers, such as Nightwing. Don’t know Nightwing? He’s Dick Grayson. Still doesn’t ring a bell? He’s the first of Batman’s protégés! Right now, Batman’s up to Robin number three.

What got me interested in comic books, namely DC Comics, was the in-depth character history. American comics are more like soap operas, and don’t have a concrete storyline, so it has all the time in the world for characterization.

Let’s use Dick Grayson as an example. People who have read Detective Comics since the 1940s would know him since he was Robin: wearing green-scaled underwear and fighting crime with Batman while shouting “Goly Gee Batman!” But since then he has “grown-up”, picked up a new superhero identity, found his own city to protect, and now leads a team. He also has his own monthly issue series!

If you’re a manga (Japanese comic book) reader, you know what I mean when stories just drag on and never reaches the conclusion! Annoying innit? This never happens in American comic books, because of the reason I mentioned above: it’s like The Bold and the Beautiful, without the whole load of drama, abortion and your husband coming back alive three years later after what you thought was a fatal snake bite while he was on an expedition in Africa. Furthermore, I bet you’ve wished for a crossover between two different manga titles, just for the sake of wanting to seem them team-up. Well, this happens quite often in American comic books! There are many crossovers within the institutions, as well as out of the institution, for example Justice Society of America (JSA) and DC vs. Marvel.

*****

Maybe superheroes comics aren’t your cup of tea, but don’t let that stop you from reading them.

You like chick-flicks? Try the new series called Spiderman Loves Mary Jane, which is basically about MJ and her high school life. Juggling around school, friends and her relationship with Spidey.

Dear female readers… find yourself your favourite hot superhero, and I guarantee you that you’ll enjoy reading comic book a lot more!

If you’re looking for a superhero comic not as dramatic as Superman, try Runaways. It’s about six teenagers (who thought they had a pretty average life), finding out their parents are super villains, and runs away from home. During their adventure each individual either finds out about their hidden powers, what they really are, or obtain these awesome power gloves that can blast fire. But since they are teenagers, there’re tons of dramas! I’m sure manga readers will love this series, since the art-style is greatly influenced by manga.

And no, they don’t have eyes half the size of their heads.

How about something waaay more realistic? Then checkout Marvel’s recent title called Kick-Ass. It’s rated mature for violence, but I’m sure Year 11+ can handle it. It’s basically about a high school comic-geek becoming a vigilante. But it’s not your average success story. He gets severely beaten up by gangs and gets into a whole load of trouble.

Want something with more flare and Tarantino-esque? Grab a copy of Young Liars! It’s institution is Vertigo (which goes under DC Comics’ umbrella) because of it’s rating. So much like Tarantino’s movie, I can only recommended it to mature readers or Upper school students. But it’s an amazing read, and I can go as far as saying it’s one of the best series I’ve read.

*****

I’m sure you’re wondering where you can purchase these comics. If you’re looking for trade paperbacks (TPB), which are basically 6/7 issues put together, you should be able to find/order it at any bookstore. But beware, major cooperates are out to rape your wallets! They will most likely charge $20 more than the original price.

This is when the dingy little comic book stores’ awesomeness comes in!They don’t charge any additional price, and you can order TPBs too. But the fallback is that the stores are really hard to find, and super tiny. So far I’ve only found two stores, which happens to be in the same building…

Sugar Street is right behind Windsor House, the building with Toys R Us.

Rejection never looked any Sweeter

Because it’s Starfire getting total EPIC rejection by Nightwing. PWNNEEEEED!!!

He don’t love you BITCH, ahaha!!!

Starfire gets rejected by Nightwing

… awkwaaaard.
Every time there’s an awkward silence, a gay baby’s born.

Massive melons.

I also bought the new issue of Tiny Titans, they get their report cards! … and I got two of my favourites here~
I seriously saw this coming, but it’s way cuter than what I imagined!

xD~

And as you might’ve also guessed, Robin is scared of clowns! I believe the last panel will totally make the “Awwww” of the day.
Elementary my dear Watson.

I recently picked up a new title called Young Liars… and dropped Batgirl.
omg, I just jumped on board and I already have a clear idea what’s going on. T’is amazing!  Very Tarntino-esque. Fucking random, but awesome randomness.
You just can’t expect what’s gonna happen next!

I love it when little girls kicks ass :’)

Btw, it’s Vertigo.
Just imagine your mom getting nailed on the dining table while you’re eating supper. :)

Pickup Young Liars, coz it’s one of the most amazingest comics I’ve read. I’d give it the Mao-assurance-for-amazingness stamp :)

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!

I can haz acshon-figers?

*le sigh*

Don’t you just hate it when you want something but know you can’t have it? :(
No, not talking about lurve~

But…

*le sighs again*
:(

Out of stock!
“I is dunno wen it cum back!”
“D:”
“sori!”
“D:”

To make it clear it wasn’t out of stock at the store… but at wherever they order all the stuff from.

T_T

But on the positive note, Udon Studios (the awesome people that brought you an anime-fied Cheetah), is releasing Posion Ivy next!

Scheduled to be released on 8th April 2009.
I think it’s the best out of all of their Ame-Comi figure produced!

hah, here’s an idea!
How ’bout an anime for the DC superheroes?! No, not like Teen Titans or Totally Spies, but a full of Jap-anime (imagine Furuba, Gundam Seed or something!). So all the male characters will be bishounens!!! Not a stretch for Nightwing, but oh boy… Superman… *throws up in mouth a little*

-_-”

I have yet to buy this week’s comics. I think Titans and Nightwing’s out, unless Titans got pushed back again. I went to the store on Thursday, but because of labour day it wasn’t out in HK yet :/

… stupid labour day <_<“
