Summary: Nyssa is lost, probably dead. Yet the tangled skein of their timeline has one more wrinkle.

This is my first post. I read the rules but if I messed up, just let me know! :)

Today is not only Memorial Day in the U.S., but the 100th birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States. He served his country during World War II and in the White House, and has made his share of appearances in comics over the years. He met Superman more than one time in the comics, and Supergirl, too, when her cousin revealed her to the world in 1962.

I also recall a Marvel Invaders comic in which a bad guy was attempting to kidnap a young war veteran running for Congress in 1946. Why? To rule the world in the future, of course, when that young man became President! :)

Anyway, I wanted to post something as it's a pretty sure bet none of us will be around for his 200th birthday! ;)

I’ll be glad when I’ve finished Karnak, because having that little bastard in my head is probably doing me damage. -- Warren Ellis

As you will hopefully have noticed, there's a movie opening at the end of the week, and it's something of a big deal.

It's the first big screen female led superhero movie (Important addendum: following the first couple of posts below, let me amend that to "the first big screen female led superhero movie of the modern age" as I had overlooked a couple) and the first one devoted to one of the first female superheroes. I refer of course, to Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot.

The reviews have been universally positive, and those of you following her various creators on social media will have noticed that they all LOVED it.

Scans_Daily owes a lot to Diana of Themyscira, and this, we feel should be appropriate to reflect that, but honouring her with... well, it was originally going to be a "Week of Wonder", but nah, Diana deserves more so we're having a "World of Wonder instead

We're interested in seeing ALL the Amazon's who have contributed, so Diana is a given of course, but also Donna, Cassie, Hippolyta and Artemis, heck if you have an Io, Nubia or Phillipus scene that you want to showcase, bring it on!

Mortal associates like Steve Trevor, Cyndi Meyer and Etta Candy or scenes with her villains like the Cheetah, Dr Cyber or even these delightful scamps from Villainy Incorporated



So let's see lots of posts folks, Diana deserves it and we don't want to disappoint her, do we?

The Arrival is a silent graphic novel about a man who leaves his family behind, to go and find work in a distant city to provide a better life for them. As he tries to adapt to life in this strange new city he meets others people and learns their stories. It's a beautiful book and this is the part which stand out to me the most. Also I should probably mention I previously uploaded these scans to my Tumblr.

"I'd also like to stress that the portrayal of Batman presented here is not definitive and is not necessarily how I would write the character otherwise. The repressed, armoured, uncertain and sexually frozen man in Arkham Asylum was intended as a critique of the '80s interpretation of Batman as violent, driven and borderline psychopathic. My own later portrayal of Batman in the JLA comic was one which emphasized the character's sanity and dignity; in the end, I figured that anyone who had gone so far and been so successful in his quest to avenge his parents' death and to help other people would have ended up pretty much straightened out. Bruce Wayne would only have become conflicted and mentally unstable if he had NOT put on his scary bat-suit and found the perfect outlet for his feelings of rage, guilt and revenge." - Grant Morrison

I remain behind on everything so many of life's sundries at the minute, and am still time-shifting all viewing.

Fingers crossed I am getting back into the knack of meta/reviewing. As before, I am sticking these up on AO3. If you're interested they are here: Knock Knock & Oxygen.

Thank you.

Comments are always welcome. Replies to those may also be a tad belated.
Sorry.

The key thing is that it’s politicians, not the military or some sort of special team, that become involved with UFO mythology, so this isn’t about firefights and a standard “alien invasion.” It’s much more about [UFO] mythology itself, and how that myth has been shaped by, and actually done its part in shaping, America. -- Paul Cornell

It's part of their King imprint.

Its protagonist's the 22nd Phantom's successor.

He doesn't consider himself the 23rd.

That's not for want of self-confidence. )

Title: Lepidoptera
Author: [personal profile] saki101
Fandoms: Sherlock Holmes BBC/A Midsummer Night's Dream - Shakespeare
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Mrs Hudson, Mycroft Holmes, Mike Stamford, Titania, Puck, Oberon
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Slash, magical realism
Word Count: ~18K
Disclaimer: Neither A Midsummer Night's Dream nor Sherlock is mine and no money is being made.
Summary: Mike introduces John to Mrs Hudson, who has a room to let. Sherlock resides in Regent's Park when he's in London. It's only a short flight to Baker Street.
Notes: A stand-alone AU of the Sherlock universe crossed with A Midsummer Night's Dream written for the Spook-Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon in response to the prompt: dark faeries.

Warning: Strange things ahead (blood-drinking moths, for example).

Excerpt: “Nothing ever happens to me,” John said, meeting Ella’s detached gaze. He could look someone straight in the eye and not give away a thing. The skill had been as valuable in his career as when he played poker. His therapist glanced down to scratch at her notebook. She had perfected the same technique.

John looked beyond her. Outside the firmly closed windows, bare tree branches scratched at the pale grey page of the sky.

"Anymore," he added silently.
