Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

One of the bloggers I read, in criticism of the Batwoman/Catwoman sex thing wondered if Batman used a condom, and if so, if it had a Bat-symbol on it.

Which led me to some fine images. Parallax tells it how it is, about HIV:

I'm still thinking that those "concerned" about the sex didn't pay attention to Selina's internal dialogue where she stated the two of them had "done this" many times before...that wasn't the first time they had sex and yet it's being talked about because it was actually shown. It is funny what becomes "controversial".

I didn't care for the art in the Superman preview. This is odd as I liked the art in the Superman preview a few months back when the internet slut-shamed Lois. In any event, I'll still probably pick it up as the Superman fan in me can't pass up a new #1.

Could you imagine the internet's reaction to that?!

I have just read this issue. Honestly, the sex is very PG-13--not sure what the big deal is. I'm more concerned that Selina apparently doesn't have any proper sports bras to wear when she goes out as Catwoman!

Must be a big Bat Book crossover coming out in early 2012.

Maybe they were stuck together. BAM!

Yeah. That bothered me in Batwoman (not a typo this time ) too. Bette Kane is suiting up without a bra of any kind. Huh? Support matters, dudes.

From what I've seen of the Catwoman issue, it really just looks like a failure of craft. All this narration (visual medium, Judd), and the sex looks weird. At best, it's like they're in a transition between that pseudo-scissor position you see in porn but that I personally hate because it's awkward and hurty,* and the far-easier-to-describe cowgirl. Bad moment to capture.

This is actually one of those times tracing from a porno might have improved a comic. Greg Land would've nailed this shit.

It's not too bad, I guess. The "hey, boobs!" on the first couple of pages (and the cover) annoys me much more.

*Is there a name for this position? Surely if there's a name for pile driver, which is the worst sexual position ever, there must be. You know, looks sort of like:

ouch, my penis!

Oh yeah, and Batman does not use a condom, he uses a batphylactic.

Fine message. Not so fine images. Joe Staton was really losing it. What, did Rob Liefeld ink him or something?

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

IMAO it's becoming clear (duh) that the shift to the nuDC is designed to include more explicitly sexual narrative and more graphic violence in many titles than was previously editorial policy. What remains to be seen is who among the creative staff are up to handling it particularly well.

And I guess there are three potential cheesy puns in that last sentence, none of which were intentional - but fuck it.

This. The whole putting "pants on the women" thing seems... oddly not happening. If anything, the pants are flying off at a faster rate than before.

Let's wire up his corpse and see if we can generate some electrical power.

Yeah I agree...I think this was addressed during one of their many 52 panels and someone brought up what about marketing to kids, I can't remember what the answer was to this question. I'm guessing their attempt to bring in new readers means older readers or teenagers at the very least.
