gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (Default)

Nothing says "More Joy" like "Birds of Prey Relaunch," but that was yesterday. So I think it is time to talk about why BoP is the greatest! And by "talk about" I mean "post a gazillion pictures of." Not even remotely dial-up friendly.)





"A lot of you Bat-guys" doesn't just mean characters; I don't think writers always get that about Babs.




Oracle has a type.


The funniest thing is how Chuck Dixon apparently thought he wasn't writing a book about lesbians.






Hugs! (And Interrupting Nightwing.) If that's not joy I don't know what is.


Babs is the most jealous/over-protective ever. (Seriously, more than half the early BoP stories went like this: Dinah goes to exotic location, meets dude. Babs immediately decides dude is evil and searches for information to prove her point. Then hijinks ensue, generally involving drug runners and/or dinosaurs.)


Insert your own joke here.


More hugs! All superhero teams should have hugs.




Creote & Savant are amazing and wonderful and need to have their own miniseries.


Dinah, honey, leave the chili-making to Ollie.


Just as long as there's no shampoo arrow or plastic cat arrow, I think you're good.


Dinah looks after her girls.








Hey remember when Babs had sentient robot cancer and they beat it through the power of love? Good times.


This panel is NEVER NOT FUNNY, okay.


Zinda Blake: FUCKING BADASS.


I love the non-superhero parts of this book. More superheroes need to go shopping, talk about food, that sort of thing. You can't be saving the world all the time.




Sometimes Shiva is in love with Dinah a little. It's a thing.




Jim is the greatest dad, seriously.




Sometimes I forget how much I totally ship them, because pretty much since they got married everything they've been in is terrible.


This is Gail Simone, so that probably means exactly what you think it does.





\o/ This was the first comic I ever bought new.



BADASS SCHOOLTEACHER.


There's a REASON this girl is my default LJ icon.








STILL FUNNY.


So has anybody written Zinda/Jack Harkness yet? Because they shoooould.






Does it surprise anybody that I ship them hardcore? No. No it doesn't.




"I'M A DIVERSION!"


REALLY KIND OF NOT SO MUCH, Oblivious Russian Dude!








Don't mess with Dinah's girlfriend. Just don't.


Ragdoll is the most ridiculous.


Zinda Blake is not your bitch.


:D Sin's little FACE.

After that point, the series mostly made me either angry or weepy, which are not very More Joy appropriate. So let's end on this note:

\o/ WELCOME BACK.
