Mention "Batman" and "the nineties" in the same sentence, and most Batman fans will run away screaming unless you happen to be talking about Batman: The Animated Series (or one of its excellent tie-in comics). I've come to realize that 90s!Batman's reputation for being a coldhearted asshole isn't completely undeserved, but even still, I continue to find that the era contained some of the most underrated Batman tales of all time.

Case in point: Detective Comics #638, written by one of Batman's most under-appreciated scribes: Peter Milligan. Now, Milligan is typically far more famous in Marvel/Vertigo circles, but pound for pound, the handful of Batman stories he did are almost all treasures. Even "Dark Knight, Dark City", decried by many as being a needless grimdarking of the Riddler, has its charms as an old-school horror story, and the Riddler's atypically violent behavior is not only explained, but pretty explicitly temporary.

But we're not here to talk about that today. No, we're here to talk about a far more obscure story known simply as... "The Bomb".

The war was won, and the autobots were needed on Earth no longer. In the end they returned to Cybertron to build a new life. Unfortunately, with their numbers low and the Allspark destroyed nothing could have saved them from extinction. Or so they though.

The sky was golden, with a little tint of orange and pink, spread before Sam as far as his eyes could see. There were no clouds, but even in those early hours of evening, it was possible to see speckles of stars, distant yet familiar, even if their position was a little different from what he used to.
If he was only to squint his eyes, he could pretend he was watching an earthen sunset.

Reading, rereading, and rewrites

Jul. 23rd, 2014 21:43
umadoshi: (read fast (bisty_icons))
[personal profile] umadoshi
I'm not properly doing a reading meme tonight, but I've been getting more books read this month than I have in ages, which is awesome. (I've just started my eighth or ninth novel of the month, depending on whether one factors in the new Newsflesh novella.)

Really, I probably shouldn't have started the new book until I read the next chunk of Feed so I can comment on it tomorrow at [community profile] aftertheendtimes, but we're coming up to one of the parts of the series that upsets me most*, so I think maybe I subconsciously put it off. >.> So I'll have to read and write about it tomorrow. Because it's so much better that way.

*I have a list. Some days I think it's a little weird that my favorite series shatters my heart in so many places/ways. Other days I feel like it's more that that's a key element.

Anyway, in a freak development, the current book (The Girl With All the Gifts) is a book I own, rather than a library book. I got to actually go stand in front of the physical to-read bookcase in the living room and choose something!

In highly relevant news, I've crossed the 300-book mark on my list of library holds. O_O (305, to be precise, not counting the three that are waiting to be picked up tomorrow--although all three of those are graphic novels.)

And speaking of counting things...I've now been hanging out at over 300 open tabs for long enough that it apparently feels normal (although I don't like it). I've been putting a fair bit of time into whittling away at them in the last few days, alongside my work, and have gotten down open tabs. *facepalm* Although I've also managed to do a fair bit of sorting, so my main group is down to only about two and a half rows of tabs (last week it was usually more like eight or nine rows).

On the work front, I think I have five rewrites due by September 1. And three lettered volumes to proofread within the next week. O_o (Some deadline adjustment may happen there. That'd be nice.) Combine that with the fact that I'll be in Ontario for two and a half weeks next month, and things start to feel a little tight. But I'm still hoping to get at least somewhat ahead before I fly out. That's just over a week away, and things will be fairly quiet on the home front between now and then. We'll see.

Euclid is a geometry game that you can play online.  See a tutorial for it. One interesting feature is that you start out with a set of what they call "primitive" tools (line segment, ray, circle, etc.).  As you solve puzzles, you earn more advanced tools to automate certain functions, such as a triangle maker.  The game calculates the minimum number of moves required to solve a puzzle, as well as whether you're doing it right.

Vote for McShep! in the Classics division. Sheesh, don't we feel old. :)

According to the actual definition, a "classic" has to be at least 30 years old. I mean.

I reviewed six sample pips from Conjure Oils' Speakeasy collection. At my journal, a review of Cherry Red Lipstick; Flapper; Sloe Gin Fizzy; The Ol' College Try; Vaudeville; and Jalopy.

As a relative newbie to perfume and especially to perfume reviews, I've been having such a great time reading [community profile] smellsgood that I was inspired to finally do something I've been wanting to do since Seanan McGuire announced that Conjure Oils had designed a set of perfume oils around her characters in her October Daye series. I didn't end up buying any sample pips from that collection (I set a hard limit of "no more than $35 on pips" for my first time ordering, and had others that I wanted to try equally as much or more than the 7 pips I could get for that price in the Toby collection), but I did end up with quite a few pips to try. I'm only reviewing some of them, because my nose gets tired, but I'll post the rest in the next couple days.

I figured I'd post one more Batman comic for today. It's from Detective Comics #747. It's a nice little one-shot (although it leads into something else) and also serves as a bit of a counterpoint to some Batdickery.
