Flash and Glider

Some time ago, I kinda panned several comic books for selfish and silly reasons.  With regards to The Flash, I called the first book generic.  I called the Flash boring.  I called out the lack of growth…Truth be told, I had not finished the book by the time I had wrote the article.  I had only read about half where it focused on Barry’s relationship with his self cloning friend.  It wasn’t a fair enough shot.  By the end of the second half, the book really picked up and I was compelled to buy the second volume.  And after that, let’s just say I get why The Flash is such an amazing character with many levels complexity.  Not just in the character, but a nice insight into why Flash’s mythology is heralded as much more than ‘running fast’.  Especially for someone who doesn’t know much about The Flash.

I got a pang to draw more DC heroes after my Zatanna drawing and I decided to redraw Wonder Woman after my derpy interpretation in the past.  I admit, this is still a little derpy, but I’m definitely trying to a weird medium between pure cartoon and semi-realism.  Anyways, it came out kind of okay, and I’m getting more and more surprised with how quickly I finish these with this particular piece being clocked in at about a little over 2 hours.  Does that mean if I focus more time I can get more quality results?  I dunno.  I’ve never had a project that has taken over 5 or 6 hours max on my Cintiq, maybe it’s time I try.

Anyways, let me know if you guys have any comments or questions.

I have Black Carnival stuff also, but I’m just waiting for the opportune time to share it.

Also, here is a speed art video below.

It’s been pretty stressful over here at Georgia Tech.  Chemical Engineering degrees don’t just get themselves.  I’m sorry I’ve broken my promise of videos, comic strips, articles, and pictures every week.  It’s unfortunately too much to handle.  However, I’ll remember to update this blog every once in a while when I make something worth sharing.

Picked up the first two volumes of New 52 Nightwing.  Thought it was pretty neat and drew this quick picture.  Enjoy.

My first venture into DC comics was through some of the classics: The Killing Joke, The Long Halloween, The Dark Knight Returns, and Knightfall.  Sooner or later, I continued to pick up other Batman titles like Hush, Death in the Family, and Arkham Asylum.  I picked up everything that was considered Batman essential stories and sat proud of my collection of DC titles.  I continued to pick up a few DC imprints like Vertigo comics such as Fables and Y: The Last Man, further cementing my status as a DC fanboy.

What I hadn’t considered in the past was exploring other main DC titles.  For a while I was perfectly content with my collection.  Then I stumbled upon a fan webcomic created by Yale Stewart known as JL8.  This web comic series, based on the Justice League as if they were eight year old children, really compelled me to explore some of the other DC characters.  As a result I purchased The New 52 Justice League, happily reveling in the adult version of JL8.  But as I read Justice League, I slowly became interested in the individual members of the Justice League.  After some research, I’ve found that although Superman is one of the most popular superheroes in the DC universe, his beginning New 52 wasn’t as highly acclaimed as some of his co-League members.  Two heroes that have gotten a lot of acclaim were Wonder Woman and surprisingly Aquaman.  So I picked up whatever current volumes existed for these two super heroes.  I quickly learned that DC isn’t only ‘just Batman’.

The volumes covered in this article include:

  • Aquaman Vol. 1: The Trench, written by Geoff Johns & illustrated  by Ivan Reiss
  • Aquaman Vol. 2: The Others, written by Geoff Johns & illustrated by Ivan Reiss
  • Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Blood, written by Brian Azzarello & illustrated by Cliff Chiang

Minimal Spoilers ahead
