cass, can you not

Legion #14

It's still a book about politics, whether it knows it or not. It just shouldn't try to be a book about generational politics, because that doesn't translate well between centuries (besides the obvious superficial call to teenage readers, and we go back to the "DC thinks we're all 16 and hormonal" explanatory model).

PS: The letters page remains stunning, only matched, IMHO, by Cable/Deadpool's intros. There should be crossovers. I demand crossovers. It's not like it wouldn't be absurdly easy to come with a reasonable plot to justify it.

A sort-of Badfic (not mine, though)

My comics-taunting ex-girlfriend(*) got pretty interested by the concept of badfic, and promptly came up with the following text, which she asked me to post.

Warning I: She has no respect for Batman. At all.
Warning II: I translated this from her notes, but strived to keep the grammar and narrative style as close as possible to how she narrated it. The result is... oddly appropiate to badfic?
Warning III: This isn't bad fic. It's bona fide badfic. *feels proud of ex-GF*

(*) I don't think anybody who has read both "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "Grendel: Black, White and Red" should insist that she doesn't care for comics, but that's just me. *g*
