Now, I for one have never been a fan of Ivy. I just found her...as a one dimensional tree humper typical femme fatale. This book changed that. A LOT.

Here we see a seemly reformed Ivy creating a lode of wonderful botanic creation beneficial to the mass population. At the same time a large tower begins to cover the precious light her plants dearly need. Soon into the construction of the tower, people begin to go into psychotic episodes and later killing themselves. Batman, believing it to be caused by plants, teams up with Ivy to solve the strange case.

First of, the art is absolutely GORGEOUS. It's a little gritty and murky at times but it fits the story perfectly. The characterization of Batman and especially Poison Ivy were great. Like I said before, I used to have a great dislike to her, but this book made me like her. Not tolerant, but LIKE. That's saying a lot in a count of my previous hatred of her.

In conclusion, it's a definite pick up, especial for Ivy fans(or "former" haters :D).

*****/5
Do you seek attention or hide from it?


I don't like attention on ME but rather at what I DO. If that makes sense. What I mean is I like attention on things that I believe I do good at like art and what not. So, I'll rather have the attention my ART rather then MYSELF. So, generally no.

...get it?

Writer's Block: All About My Mother

Who is your favorite mother (the character, not the actress) from television or the movies?

Mmm...CATWOMAN! Honestly having her for a mom would be awesome(though dangerous).

Battle for the cowl: Arkham Asylum Review



For the most part, I'm not digging this battle for the cowl jig. But, this oneshot of Gotham's most infamous asylum director, I TOTALLY dig.

We start of with Jeremiah Arkham coming back to his asylum in shambles. Then he takes use through a nostalgic look back at some of his patients(Zsasz, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy ect..)and what happened to him before the destruction of the asylum. Then, we see him talk about a few new characters(non-violent). All stories about these new and less aggressive characters are told beautifully and fairly grounded. After that, he comes to solitary confinement or "the place were beauty lies" were he meets those same patients from his reflection.Relieved to see them and inspired by his uncle's(Amadeus)plans for the asylum, Jeremiah sets of with his group of misfits and on a new path for Arkham Asylum.

The writting is great, David Hine did a great job on Jeremiah and introducing the three new patients.The art is fine, nothing special. It's a definite pick up, though I wish they'll do a follow up or something.

Best/Creepiest Scarecrow Costumes

Since I starting reading Batman comics(eheh, like 10 months ago) I've notice that Scarecrow's costume is always subject to change depending on the artist. He's rarely in the same costume in one issue as he was in another(if the artist is different).

It's constantly changing.But, of course, not to the point were the costume doesn't even have the vaguest appearances of a scarecrow.Though most fail to look at all scary or frighten, as the Master of Fear should be.

So now I bring you a list of, in my opinion, the 4 best and creepiest Scarecrow costumes!
Each costume is rated on a scale of "creepiness" from lowest to highest:

4. The Long Halloween:
Come'on, you know has awesome Tim Sale's Scarecrow is(minus nursery rhyming crap).
It set's apart from other costumes by it's stark black clothing versus the traditional brown.Though, it ends up more stylized then scary.
Creep factor:7/10

3.Batman Begins:
Truthfully, when I first saw a picture of this(above)I was creep out. If I ever saw someone with that mask(dark alley or not)I'll book it. The effects of the mask are only made worse with the fear toxins.Though, it's the most practical of all(just slip it on and your good).
Creep factor:8/10

2.B:TAS :
Though it looks more like a dead corpse, it's still a very effective costume. Very different from previous ones in the animated series, but I'm glade for the change. This version was never given a face, the creators themselves doubt there was ever a person inside of it!
Creep factor:9/10

1. Batman/Judge Dredd:
When I first saw this, I nearly shited my pants. The image speaks for it's self.
Creep factor:10/10

Feel free to make your own list of what you think are the best Scarecrow costumes.

Writer's Block: Pet Peeve

What is the most annoying sound in the entire world?

This....

...Just makes me want to kill myself every time I hear it.

Writer's Block: Gamer's Choice

What is your favorite old-school video game?

SUPER MARIOOOOO 3!
Best.Nintendo game.EVER.
Honestly I spend HOURS playing it. It was such a fun and creative game. And who could forget the icon sound effects?! Do do do do do do doo! :D

Writer's Block: Sweet Tooth

What is your favorite holiday-specific candy or treat?

THESE:

I swear there like crack. NOM NOM NOM.

Writer's Block: Confidences

Who do you think it is easier to talk about your problems with: your friends, your family, or strangers?

It all depends on the person. With family, my cousin, mother and younger brother. With friends, it's usually the most reserved person in my group. People that are more reserved(quiet) then myself are better listeners then the loud extroverted types were it's all "me me me!". Stranger now...yeah if I'm like piss-assed drunk. -_-

Writer's Block: Grab and Go

Scenario: For exactly 1 minute, you get access to all the databases of all the intelligence agencies in the world (CIA, FBI, KGB, MI-5, etc). What do you want to find out before time is up and you're caught and jailed forever?


Shiiitt I'll probably waste that 1 minute just thinking about what I want to find out! But, in the case that I already planed ahead as to what I would want to search up...mmm maybe what the fuck is REALLY going on in Arean 51. Like REALLY. I wouldn't be surprise if that place was just one big troll-created seat-up to piss off and drive paranoid Americans over the edge.

That's what I honestly think. :.
