Here comes the review you've been waiting for! Comic book day! Featuring Red Robin #17, Batgirl #15, and other things! (Though only one at a time! Yes, this is an exercise in tl;dr, but I dislike excessive exercising and am liable to word sprains)

Hang on, you haven't been waiting for it? Well that's...What are you doing here, then?

All right, all right, if that's the case. Proceed.

Small warning, though. As I've taken it upon myself to start writing about the things I love again, you will soon (if not immediately) find that one of those many things is comic books (...grammar?). Yes, the superhero kind, among others. New comic books come out every week, so I will read them and if I feel strongly enough about what bizarre hijinks these caped crazies get up to, they'll end up here in the form of word farts.

Smell if you dare.


Red Robin #17

So, Tim goes to Hong Kong to look up some leads regarding the whole Lynx (the lovely lady on the cover with him) affair. Meets up with Cassandra Cain, ex-Batgirl and one of my favorite characters of all time for, like, five pages. Clearly this is not a comic book written with me in mind (when is it ever?), because if it were, Cass and Tim would team up and take bad guys down together and hang out and be awesome friends (or more), instead of just Tim watching Cass beat people up, giving her a costume, and flying straight back home to Gotham City.

Which is exactly what happened, and also is why I'm highly disappointed in DC. This was obviously just something DC threw to pacify the angry legions of Cass fans, and not even for very long. They had better have plans for her in this whole Batman Inc. thing coming up, because this is not over.

no it's not over )

I regret to interrupt our regularly (HAHA) scheduled programming, but this is something that I have been waiting for for years, and letting it pass me by would be an insult to all those angry rants and aborted hopes.

So here it is, in all its undiluted glory.

Tomorrow, Red Robin #17 comes out. In this issue's story, Tim goes to Hong Kong for some reason I don't particularly give a crap about because --



CASS IS BACK CASS IS BACK CASS IS BACK LOOK AT HER!


She's got a little bit of the Scandal Savage look going on, but that's perfectly fine. At least her ripoff costume's way cooler than Tim's ripoff costume. I don't particularly appreciate the ninja look for political reasons (not all Asians are ninjas, okay? And if I remember it right, Cass is half-Vietnamese. Aoi dai?), but it does look badass.

Little bit of Batgirl history for those who, y'know, have lives outside of comic books )



CASS I HAVE MISSED YOU SO MUCH TT______TT

You know what you're going to get tomorrow once I put my grubby hands on a copy of this baby.

Sidebar, I watched Glee (2.06) today. I didn't feel like clawing my eyes out (SHOCK AND AWE). Do I take this as a sign that things are turning for the better or is this merely lulling me into a false sense of security?

Stay tuned.
