News & Notes

Dustin Nguyen, who's been providing great art for Paul Dini's run on Detective Comics, and is as far as I know not related to Dustin Nguyen the actor, posted the above pile of redheads on his blog, featuring Ivy, Batgirl, Batwoman, and plenty of others from DC and Marvel comics. IMO, it could've used a little Atom Eve, but it's still great work.
  • A man in South Africa, distraught over the recent "death" of Batman in the comics, took out an ad in the paper to share his grief with other Bat-fans. There are sort of spoilers, but he didn't seem to exactly grasp what happened.

  • In his review of the first part of Neil Gaimain's new Batman tale, Douglas Wolk argues that the South African gentleman need not worry either, since a villain greater than Darkseid is controlling the events in comics:
    No threat of change can be effective any more; the gravitational force of How It Was in '83 is impossible to escape, and growing stronger all the time. Any change, any breakup, any death, any exploded planet will revert to its early-'80s form sooner rather than later.
  • To raise money for a friend's medical bills, Darwyn Cooke, Cameron Stewart, and Adam Hughes (who are all fantastic artists) are auctioning off original work. check out the auction page for what you can bid on. There's a kickass Stewart Catwoman, but I'm not sure it gets any better than Cooke's Batman though:
