I've made some icons from Superman #210 (written by Brian Azzarello, pencils by Jim Lee, inks by Scott Williams). As usual, comment if you claim one, say if you're willing to share, otherwise the icon belongs to the first person to claim it, and of course you can modify them in any way you want:

I've read Superman #204 (written by Brian Azzarello, pencils by Jim Lee, inks by Scott Williams), and I liked it. Okay, it is a bit of trick to start telling your story starting at the end to hook readers so that they wonder what brought the characters there, and Azzarello does it both on the level of this issue, with not revealing for quite some time what the monumental event Superman and the priest were both referring to was (I know I'm kind of vague, but I don't want to spoil), and for the cliffhanger, because we still don't know what Superman did exactly, and I guess the tension will be kept up for a bit in that fashion. But the trick with the narrative structure totally worked. I'm thoroughly hooked.

The art is very much eye candy, the way Superman is often backlit with lots of shadows gives him a great look, and Lee has the iconic poses down pat. Gorgeous.

So naturally I couldn't resist and have icons for your enjoyment, the usual rules apply, comment if you claim one, say if you're willing to share, otherwise the icon belongs to the first person to claim it, and of course you can modify them in any way you want:

So he's "only" a supporting character, but who wouldn't need an icon or two of a cute, geeky and gay ex-supervillain?

After this inspiring post in [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily I just couldn't resist and made a few icons from the "The Rainbow Batman" story, published in Detective Comics #241 from 1957. He's "a rainbow of dazzling action," and who could resist that? Feel free to modify them in any way you want, but please comment if you take one.

I've made some Batman and Nightwing icons of the animated characters, from Batman Adventures #12. (BTW, that I bought that comic in the first place is entirely [livejournal.com profile] lcsbanana's fault.) As usual, please comment if you take an icon, unless people say they're okay with sharing, the icon belongs to whoever claims it first, and feel free to modify them any way you want.

I made some Flash icons. The icons from issue #195, #198, #199 and #200 have artwork from Scott Kolins (pencils) and Doug Hazelwood (inks), the ones from issue #205 have artwork from Alberto Dose (pencils and inks). You can see in the filename which issue the icon from. As usual, please comment if you claim an icon, and of course you can modify them any way you want.

Yesterday I read the latest Superman/Batman issue (by Jeph Loeb and Pat Lee) so this morning I ended up making icons from it. Some Superman and Batman, but more Robin and Superboy, as the issue is mostly about them. Comment if you want one, feel free to modify them as you like. (Also, there's a disturbing connection here between me having university stuff due and the frequency of my posts, especially of icons and the like. Ahem.)

Icons with Batman, Catwoman, Nightwing, Arsenal, Tempest, the JLA, Krypto... You can see which comic the original image was taken from by moving your mouse over them. Please don't direct link. Comment here before you use icons for your LJ or elsewhere, so that it's clear which ones are claimed. Of course you can customize them any way you want.

I'm less than happy with the current breakup scenario between Dick and Babs. I mean, it's not so much that Dick/Babs were my OTP, though I like them together, but that the why and how of the breakup isn't done in a way that makes me appreciate this development. About the only thing that I can really say in its favor is that so far they synchronized quite well, so that there are references to this in the recent BOP, Nightwing and Batgirl issues.

So as a kind of flashback to happier times, I offer a few Dick/Babs shipper icons as well as two of just Nightwing, with art from Birds of Prey #8. For once, the lightening is bright and cheery, not dark, rainy and gloomy... (not that there is anything wrong with dark and rainy, it's just that it makes it hard to get good icons from comics set in Gotham or Bl├╝dhaven.)

icons, from Birds of Prey #8, don't click if you can't take sappy ship =) )

I've made some icons from the Elseworld comic Superman: Red Son (written by Mark Millar, pencils by Dave Johnson and Kilian Plunkett, inks by Andrew Robinson and Walden Wong). I've wanted to for some time now, because I just get a kick out of seeing Superman with a hammer and sickle symbol instead of his customary S. BTW, the comic, a three part prestige format Elseworld that I think is also available as a paperback (or will be soon) is quite good. At least I enjoyed reading it. But then I have a thing for AU stories.

As usual, comment if you'd like one, feel free to customize them yourself if you want, or ask me to add text, and I'll do my best. Credit would be nice, but if you usually don't do GIP posts, or list icon creators with your icons that's fine too.

I just couldn't resist the slashy goodness. Or the Flashmobile.

This is the first time I tried to make icons from episode screencaps rather than from comic scans, so I'm still trying to figure things out. Comment if you want an icon, feel free to customize them yourself if you want, or ask me to add text, and I'll do my best. Credit would be nice, but if you usually don't do GIP posts, or list icon creators with your icons that's fine too.

After the Neal Adams & Denny O'Neil run on Green Lantern / Green Arrow caught my interest in that Superheroes Unmasked documentary, like I posted a while ago, y'all knew of course how it would end. Once I covet a comic (and can find and afford it, or at least find it and beg others for money to afford it *g*) it's only a matter of time until it finds its way into my greedy little hands. That I have more than twice as much shelf space filled with comics than with books without even counting the ten or so boxes filled with US comic books is ample proof of that.

Anyway, I got the seven reprint issues from 1983 at a very fair price on ebay, and the package with them arrived yesterday. I have read some of the stories, but not yet all, because I think they're best read in smaller doses. They're not bad or anything, but wow, they are preachy, like, really, really preachy. I don't mind fiction about issues as such, though my preference is for a somewhat subtler approach, and I definitely can appreciate those GL/GA comics in their historical context. Still, there's only so much of being all about the ISSUES that I can stand at one time, even with Neal Adam art to distract me.

Still it is fun to read about GL and GA doing this road trip to discover themselves and the true America or whatever. And please, someone tell me that there is GL/GA slash set during this? I don't mean necessarily a romantic relationship between the two, but I mean they are in the 70s and on a hippie self-discovery road trip, they seem to develop a real friendship despite their different outlooks, and at least GL questions pretty much everything he previously believed to be true without questioning, so it's not a huge step to assume he might question his sexual orientation as well (and hey, it would fit with the ISSUES *g*). So I can definitely see some "experimentation" going on between the two. And there are some scenes that are at least open to a slash interpretation, like for example in the issue that was Green Lantern #78 originally, I think, when GL tells GA he should forget about Black Canary, who was brainwashed by the cult leader, only they don't know that yet, but GA suspects something, yet GL tells him "Chum, it's tough... but you've got to swallow it -- she just doesn't dig you -- " Okay, so GA then hits GL, but hey, surely you can reinterpret the aggressive response...

I also made a few Green Lantern and Green Arrow icons from these issues, if you want one, just comment, I'll customize them with text on request, too... )

Hush is just awfully pretty. So I decided to spread its prettiness around via icon spam offerings.

I tried to make some icons for Batverse comics. Of course all my favorite panels didn't really fit in an icon, and often the images were much too dark no matter how much I tried to fiddle with the scans, and this is my first attempt at something like this. However if anybody still wants some, they are up for grabs, behind the LJ-cut. If you want to add text to the plain ones that's okay, too.
