Ah, you just have a higher tolerance regarding certain, uh, shall we say, finer lines. That is to say I'm not one of the alleged androids who expect that everything must bend to their own inert logic or else it is considered trash.
Oh, All-Star gets the outrageous sympathy vote.
Yeah, it's not for subtlety, isn't it?
"Horny author"? "All women are whores"?
Gimme a break here!
I recall that you dismissed Sin City on some similar grounds? Fair enough. Another matter.
Black Canary here is none such thing. She's a thrillseeker. Out to get her kicks. After she beat up a pub chock-full of "horny and drunk men" in a fit, she finds the one man who gets more out of a kick than she does. Animal magnetism ensues, and after it culminates it's very clear with the pillow talk that's all this is. These are not monks and nuns we're reading about. They're costumed looneys. And they didn't do the deed among smoldering bodies! But maybe that's what you take from it.
Another thing is Babs. Certainly not my favorite character. At all (I only find her fun in The Batman animated series). But she's definetly not a whore. She's a plucky young thing, discovering insperation through the costumed madman that is sooo reviled.
About the "psychotic": readers never got an ending. It is important to note. They (DC) didn't finish the story. So there's no means to project what it was about. The last chapter where Dick goes wild (and gets "corrected", sir! ) shows another tone. We mourn lifes lost. Including our own.
I think peeps have trouble to see the fun in it all. That Green Lantern encounter. Yellow. Silliest weakness I've ever heard.
and Swear on a stack of bibles!
Justice Leaque founders a bunch of unlikeable buffoons.
On another note: there's is a different title with the same name. Not meant to be confused.
I've only read Vol. 1, which is written by Snyder, pencilled by Romita Jr.
Things I like, some things I dislike. Ooh, the drama.
Gordon is this close to discover the secret! But does he need to know? No. Onward! For the drama!
