I think I may write up a letter to DC tomorrow concerning Manhunter's cancellation. Eep.

rant space $.25

May. 15th, 2006 | 07:49 pm

Now, I've had the idea of creating a comics reviewing/ranting blog for a while now. I've even tossed around names for ideas and topics to rant on. But, now, with the cancellation of yet another book I adore, I think it's about time for me to get moving on it. I know that nobody would be reading it, but still, I feel that I need some type of venue to express my opinion about what's going on in the comics world, because I am the section of the readership which doesn't get any acknowledgment, any sort of works aimed at, or any sense that their opinions count.

I'm a female comics geek. A huge comics geek. I don't read books aimed at females (mainly since "aimed at females" means "aimed at twelve year old girls but read by middle aged men"). I don't read indie things, or things written by people because of what else they've done, like the Buffy comics and the sort. I read Green Lantern and Flash and X-Men. I'm at home in both cosmic Marvel and cosmic DC discussions.

And I'm sick and tired of the books I like being canceled because they don't have fanboy favorites in them, have female characters who aren't sex symbols, are well written, and push the boundaries of what comics are. I'm sick and tired of female main characters, the few there are, wearing bathing suits and heels, while the males have more common spandex. I'm tired of the lack of gritty female characters, and I'm sick to the gills of characters like Emma Frost and Supergirl, male fantasies, while I can't name more than two female characters I can even stand.

I don't read comics femmeslash for the single reason that there aren't enough characters I like enough who are female that exist in the same universe to slash. I have no favorite female characters. And I've been dealing with this shite for years.

It's because of this that I have no problem disappearing from the comics world whenever it gets to much, because it's not like I'm an important part of the readership, anyway, right?

Since my previous post was mostly gushing and fangirling and such, I feel as if the next one should be worse. Besides the fact that's it's 4 am and I'm mostly asleep, which makes so many things seem like good ideas.

I need to stop comics-crushing on Black Adam. Really, I do. I mean, really. But, gods, he's HOT and he kills things SO well.

...I think I should go to sleep now. Yes.

I want Sawada Shin to exist in reality

Watching both seasons of the Gokusen Live Action has dragged me back into what may possibly be my favorite manga/series of all time. Honestly, I adore this series in any form, and it does exist in three currently (four if you separate the live action series since they don't have the same student characters).

Now, some of you may be aware that this is the series for which I have my HET-OTP of Sawada Shin x Yankumi. Well, watching the live action has taught me that this OTP only exists in the manga and anime canons, because in the live action, dear god is Shin gay. And it can't just be blamed on Matsumoto Jun(who is frelling hot, though his hair in Hana Yori Dango scares the shit out of me). And don't get me started on the slash potential of Gokusen 2 between Ryu and Hayato.

So, now I have so much more slash fodder for Gokusen, if only the fandom existed. Me thinks I have a plan. *shifty eyes* By this time tomorrow I think I may pick up Shin x Uchi at 1sentence, because LA-verse that is so hot.

I would show those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about screen caps, but I'm lazy, so just trust me on this.

It's sad when I consider four hours of work in the library to be a "short day," isn't it?

Also take the Cable & Deadpool quote, "Good sir, you can't pay me enough to go to France while our countries are at war!" and replace 'France' with 'Lounge' and you'll get my current feelings about the 4m just clear.

This kinda makes me wanna die :

(from POCKY vs DRACULA) "man named Jack Starsmore back in the year 1987 in London turns up. He's a detective, but is also revealed to be a member of Clan Akkaba, Those who descended from "he who never dies" Apocalypse.

Apparently (i haven't read it yet) in issue 2, we see him breath fire from his mouth."

With the rumor that something about Chamber's "mysterious past" or some shite like that coming from the July solits, I'm rather worried. Then again, most things are better than the current state of 'dude, human bodies don't work like that.'

In other news, I can't wait for Manhunter 21 tomorrow. Also, the origins of The Captain in Nextwave 4. Super sweet.

Ah, the joys of returning to the campus. I miss spring break already.

It occurs to me that it's been really bloody long since I rp-ed seriously. I mean, I'm currently only in one irl game, no online games, and the irl game isn't the most solid game, due to several factors. Which means that I'm gonna be on the lookout for any games that catch my interest, which can be both a good and bad thing.

Anyway, anyone know if any good comics are coming out on weds?
