I’m finishing up my vacation and I just didn’t get to collect anything newsy for this week. Also, while I had time to draw TWO Jake & Leon strips I didn’t have the urge or opportunity to scan, color, and dialog them. And of the comics this week, only two of them barely had something “Best Scene” worthy, but one requires context in the story and the other was kind of meh. So there’s nothing here this week.
However, I already left The Clutter Reports with nothing but a vacation notice, so I was lucky this popped up in Twitter just moments ago, courtesy of Bleeding Cool. The article linked to is possibly the strongest defense of Barbara as Oracle yet, and I would encourage you to read the whole thing with an open mind. It might not change it if your part of the “Barbara as Batgirl…YAY!” camp, but writer Eric Glover goes into why having Barbara remain as the wheelchair bound Oracle was a good thing for the character and the DC Universe. I may write my own thoughts at some point, but really he hits most of the points I’d make anyway.
The site should return to normal tomorrow, but they’re talking about playing games with everyone’s schedule at work, including mine, so things may get off track for a while in a couple of weeks.
