Due to time zone differences, I crammed two days into one. Then I slept all day today. I feel like it should be Monday when it’s only Saturday. Resuming normal operations shortly.
fyeahlilbitoeverything: The next slide showed the cover of “Batman Inc.” #2, and Burnham told the audience that he and Morrison will be telling the life story of Talia. The artist believes he’s read just about every Talia appearance and said this story “really pulls from the Denny O’Neal-Neal Adams stuff…It’s kind of heartbreaking, epic, and awesome! Paging Tumblr-user katfatale! ...
Complimentary Talia scan
Because I have to do something with them now that my conference is over, right? :) (from Detective Annual #4)
More Talia later
Technically, probably tomorrow. I have an international flight today and won’t have access to the internet between now and when I get back to my apartment in the UK (at which time I’ll probably sleep for a year), but I’ll be finishing up responses to things people have sent me once I’ve gotten home and unpacked. In the meantime, have a complimentary picture of Talia.
Anonymous asked: About Talia and the rape thing. There is Batman and Robin #2 where bruce says that damian exist because he let his heart over rule his head with a pic of him and talia in bed. Than there is infant damain in some kind of growing tube thing. From reading that, I don't get rape from it. I think B&R reconts that. Talia got pregnant the normal way and decided to perfect damain in a test tube....
Anonymous asked: Didn't Grant admit that rape thing was a mistake because he didn't take the time to research, and was later corrected by other batman issues? Can't remember what issue. Anyways, I don't think the rape answer is really accurate.

Random Thought Before Bed
brooklynbohemia: When listening to Florence + The Machine’s song “What the Water Gave Me”, does anyone else think it could be a song from a musical about Batman and it’s Talia singing it to him before she goes into the Lazarus pit or something? … No? Just me? Guess I’m weirder than I thought. Okay, night Tumblr. Love it.
Talia picture dump (issues posted below each,...
Some of these will be repeats, but I have a feeling you guys won’t mind. :) I’ll try to make them some of the less known ones. Warning: One of them is a little NSFW if you look carefully (it’s about halfway down). Batman/Spiderman crossover Art, possibly fanart? No idea. If anyone knows the artist, please let me know so I can give them credit for this beautiful image ...
Slightly unrelated, happy birthday, Lady Gaga!
You made the right decision in working for Talia. I’m sure she enjoys your music. Hail Leviathan.
Apologies. Allow me to make up for it?
I still have several things to answer, including word requests. I’ve been really busy this week. I fly back to the UK tomorrow and have been getting in some much-needed time with my best friend in NY. In addition, I’ve been working on a paper that I have to turn in to an academic journal in the next few days. I’m running so late on it! And finally, in my downtime, I seem to have...
onlytalia asked: [Okay. I need your expertise! There's a scan I've seen of Talia in a hospital bed, talking to Bruce, and offering to give up everything to be with him under his terms. He says no like a douche. Do you know what this is from? Thank you you flawless human being.]
onlytalia asked: [ How are you so flawless UGH. Word: Movie. ]
Oh, and holy crap, I met Alan Tudyk yesterday
I saw him in a show in NYC, and he stuck around afterward to meet people. He is seriously the sweetest guy ever. I was utterly speechless, so I just meekly handed him my program to sign and thanked him. He chatted with everyone (who wasn’t completely speechless around him) and was soooo enthusiastic despite the fact that he’d just done over an hour of physical comedy, and basically,...
To answer a question I’ve been getting, yes, the word thing is absolutely still going on because I’m having fun with it. Keep ‘em coming, folks. Random Talia headcanon for all! I was away from my computer yesterday, so I’ll be getting back to people today. However, I might be a bit slow because I have an article to write. Multitasking like a boss.
Stepping out briefly with a friend, then hitting the hay. I’ll get back to everyone’s messages and requests tomorrow. In the meantime, feel free to keep sending words and random Talia requests to me.

Give me a word, and I'll write a headcanon. →
I don’t even know how that’s supposed to work, but yeah. Send a word, get a Talia thing involving it.
One of my all-time favorite comics fans just informed me that The Absolute Best and Sexiest Villain In Any Comics Universe Ever OMG (aka Ra’s al Ghul) might be showing up in Justice League soon. DC, do it.
Still pissed off...
Since I’m a bit behind on Wonder Woman right now, I didn’t know what had just happened in Wonder Woman until I read DC Women Kicking Ass’s post a few minutes ago. I like Brian Azzarello. I do. But this is the dumbest thing ever. I really don’t think I can continue buying this title now, even if only to criticize it for my ORC reviews. What the hell is DC thinking with...
Well it was wonderful for awhile
dcwomenkickingass: I’ve been a big fan of the rebooted Wonder Woman. I though Azzarello did a great job boiling down Wonder Woman to basic qualities - strength, loyalty, determination and giving her a bit of a tough edge. He also brought in a good supporting cast. It was a shake-up that was much needed. Add Cliff Chiang’s bold art and you had a terrific team. But then the third issue came and...
Tumblr isn't letting me reblog some things today...
So here’s a quick summation of my thoughts on the various topics I’m seeing discussed all over my dash: 1) What happened to Trayvon Martin was horrible. The way his case is being handled is disgusting. I’ve been following the case since it happened, not because it’s receiving ample news coverage (we all know what bullshit that is) but because someone on another forum...
Anonymous asked: What are all the comics in which Talia has appeared?
My Dark Knight Rises blackout has begun
From now on, I want to know nothing about the movie — no plot spoilers, no character news, nothing. Joey King got to confirm the presence of my favorite character in the movie, and that’s all I need to know. I’m removing myself from all spoiler discussions because, although normally spoilers don’t bother me, I want to experience the movie’s story as something...

(And if it makes anyone feel better, I’ve just turned 26 and was, I believe, the second-youngest person at the...
Okay, I just agreed to something
No idea what I agreed to, but I agreed to it. Tumblr, don’t make me regret our relationship.

Right you are. First, here are two pages from a Batman Adventures issue where they go on a date in Paris (I completely forgot to scan page 10, where Bruce buys her a book and she gets adorably happy over it, but once I get back to my collection, I’ll repost this with the page added.) ^^ Damnit, Bruce… Now have THE page fromSon of the Demon And a page from the...
