Today We Saw: The Batman: Who He Is And How He Came To Be… As Told By Peeps

Things We Saw Today


At DC Women Kicking Ass.

That if I read crossovers any more, I’d totally be down for a game of ComicVine‘s Crossover Bingo.

That Marie Curie’s daughters were totally boss, at Pajiba.

When the First World War scorched the north of France, Irene joined her mother in the hospital tents, using primitive X-ray machines to locate shrapnel in wounded soldiers, a torrent of radiation burned into patient and doctor for every life saved. Irene was the scientist, following closely in her mother’s footsteps, specializing in radioactivity and winning her own Nobel Prize in 1935 for managing to transmute elements from one to another. It was alchemy made reality, though stained with radioactive instability.

Eve was the black sheep of the family, an artist instead of a scientist. The two sisters took care of their mother in the last years of her life, as she succumbed to aplastic anemia finally in 1934. While Irene spent the years after the death of their mother making her own name in nuclear physics, Eve wrote the first biography of Marie Curie.

This Adventure Time crossover:

And this Firefly crossover, at Fashionably Geek.

That apparently the smell of bacon is not enough to sell bacon scented cologne, a ham-handed (intentional!) and creepy sexual image must be used. Of a headless, armless woman.

Seriously, it took me three glances to even realize that was supposed to be a strip of bacon. At That’s Nerdalicious!

Cosplayers on the Game of Thrones Throne at Wondercon, at Buzzfeed (also featured: Dr. Horrible, Jessica Rabbit, Henchman 21, Asuka, Batman, and Rainn Wilson. Not a costume. Just Rainn Wilson).

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
