And now, a small Blue Beetle Geekout Rant

HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE! HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE! HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE!

Back in Booster Gold #10, the Black Beetle said that he was Jaime Reyes’ greatest enemy, that Jaime’d taken someone away from him. Hector watched Nadia get killed while a Jaime hologram (that had just went into standby) stood by and did nothing. Later, he goes off and like, flees the country or something, and changes his name to Joshua (he’d really said Djo-Zha, but airport clerks are idiots), which is the same name that Jon Carter had called the Black Beetle in Booster Gold #10. And the DEO, who had been investigating the scene, noticed that one of the aliens was minus his scarab, which the Black Beetle obviously had. Sooo in conclusion…

HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE! HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE! HECTOR IS THE BLACK BEETLE!

Nightwing: Unofficial Fandom Bicycle

So I was slogging my way through Y!Gallery (Slogging: to drag yourself through crappy art/fics in order to find the hidden gems), when I noticed something. Every other picture in the Justice League filing was of Dick Grayson doing someone. A certain artist named Furian Fyre seems to have done an entire series of these.

But is Nightwing really that much of a slut? Or have we fans blown his erm, tendency to have sex with people alot, completely out of proportion? Because yes, he’s dated/slept with many, many women since he was first introduced in the 1940’s, but (and I’m typing this with tears in my eyes) no men. Forget all the Batman rumors and the Dick/Tim innuendo and the thing he had for Roy Harper and Jericho (that last one was a bit in my head, I’ll admit), none of it was actually proven in print. 

In conclusion, folks, I think we should declare an international day without Nightwing smut. The guy has to sleep sometime.

Chase the Morning…all the way to Broward Anime Festival

That’s right, ladies and gents, the ToG blog is going to be at Broward Anime Festival this Saturday! Just look for the lass with the suitcase and the big speaker. Come say hi and sign one of my boards!

As for the title of this post…those who caught the reference to Repo! The Genetic Opera get a cookie. Sarah Brightman is my goddess, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her.
