That sets up a Batman I want to read. That sets up a Batman whose pain comes from guilt, not just from inaction. I think a lot of us, when we think about the worst parts of our life, we think about ourselves being involved in them. It’s not just the pain that was done to us but [also] the pain we caused ourselves. In looking at Batman and making him more human and raising the stakes of the series, I wanted to bring out that guilt. -- Tom King

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Scientists have detected light connected with the collision of two neutron stars, which sounds like a Star Trek episode, but is actually incredibly cool!

Harvey Weinstein has been fired from Miramax following a plethora of accusations of various forms of sexual misconduct over many years, and aside from the usual "But I had NO idea!" from a bunch of people who probably knew damn well, it is to be hoped that no one is going to try and suggest that he was the ONLY one (Woody Allen, of all people, has gone on record saying that he hopes it doesn't turn into a witch hunt...)

Hurricane Ophelia hit Ireland and caused widespread damages and several deaths as it moved over it. A weird side effect was that the skies over most of Britain turned orange, and the sun a reddish-orange for a time, as dust and sand from the Azores was blown into the atmosphere the British Isles. Spooky.

Voltron Season 4 dropped and though shorter than the other seasons, still had some quality episode, especially their homage (and/or piss take to sentai shows)

The last season of Star Wars Rebels has also started, I hope it goes out as well as it deserves to, it has a LOT of ground to cover.

Wildfires in Spain and Portugal, possibly caused by arsonists, are causing widespread chaos and at least 39 dead.

Sorry to end with this, but, you know, I was going to give myself a week off from Trump, I think I've earned one, but I really can't, because he just keeps sinking to new lows. This week he became the first serving President to speak at the "Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit". The FRC (Subtitle probably "Won't sombebody think of the children" with a logo of clutching pearls) is officially classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group, whose agenda and membership includes anti LGBTQA+, anti-Muslim and white Supremacist POV's. The Cheeto in Chief reassured those in attendance that they "Would no longer be silenced". May I reiterate yet again, THIS IS NOT NORMAL, THIS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO BE NORMAL.

Because YOU Demanded It....

I need a huge favor, please...

Guys, I need to ask a huge favor, if you can't, it's completely fine and I understand. I hate to even ask.

We got another huge bill from Norton's Hospital about two weeks ago for one of Lee's last two infusions for his low iron levels. I was able to work with Norton's and got part of it put one our payment plan and paid off the rest. It was hard but I made it work.

Then we got another $450 bill for the second infusion therapy from the hospital on Friday. It didn't come until after they'd closed at 4pm. I wasn't able to call them about it until Monday, yesterday. I'd hoped to add it to our payment plan, too.

They told me if they added it, because our total is over $5000, that it'd make our monthly payments almost double what they are now. There's no way that we can afford that so I had to go ahead and pay the newest bill. That ate up pretty much everything we had to live on until the end of the month when Lee's paid again.

What makes it bad, and awful timing, is that Lee's leaving for Bloomington Wednesday morning for his three day conference trip for Statewide, he won't be home until Friday. He'll have some meals provided while he's there but not all, especially his dinners.

I'm going to take stuff to Half Price books and Clothes Mentor to sell today, plus I've got a bunch of stuff posted tonight to eBay, it's why I'm still up instead of sleeping like I should be. I just don't know if what I can make will be fast enough, or pay enough, for what we need.

If they do sell, though, it'll be a huge help. What I was hoping is that you'd help me spread the word about my having stuff up for sale. If you wouldn't mind doing it, here's the link:

http://stores.ebay.com/Barbaras-Essentials

If you see anything you'd like, but don't like using eBay, just let me know, we can figure out what postage will be then add it on. I can do checks but would prefer PayPal if possible. My PayPal addy is bstaton@iglou.com. If you don't have a PayPal account I can just invoice you for whatever you want to buy and then you can use either your debit or credit card to pay for it. I've done that for a couple of people and it works great.

I'm going to go try and grab a little sleep, I promise I'll check in later. Thanks, guys, as always, for listening! :)

*hugs*

Sakura is another one of those characters so deftly created by Sakai in his "Usagi Yojimbo" series. She wields a whip and travels the land looking for her brother. To that end, she works in several gambling parlours as a dice-handler, reasoning that gamblers are usually the best source of information in their respective cities. To make it even more interesting, Sakai lets on that this whip-wielding gambler is not too right in the head.

This two-parter is her origin story, and her only appearance so far.



Whip it! )

Part II next.

Romeo and Juliet are also idiotic teenagers who do something incredibly stupid and kill themselves at the end of the story. I thought it would be interesting to start with two people who are adults and not idiotic teenagers. Instead of killing themselves, they have lots of hot sex. But then the result of that sex is a baby. -- Brian K. Vaughan
