Reposting of an old post that still stands valid

August 20, 2011 1 comment

This is an entry i posted about a year ago. I love my answer. SO TRUE.

 

I’m going to answer this question that many people have asked me before: Why do you like Batman so much?

Because Batman is personal. He fights crime and most of the time, he fights his inner demons on a very deep level. He holds many strong beliefs and principles and constantly fights to live by it. Many times in our lives we reach certain crossroads, and there is a choice between choosing the easier way out (even though sometimes it may not be easy at all, just easier) and choosing to act on what you believe in and struggle with it. Batman chooses the latter, so do I. Life has proved to me that by living by that choice, most of the time, you don’t even get what you were working so hard towards, but what matters at the end of the day is that you know you made the right choice and you stuck by it. You believed in the ideas you preach and live by it. That builds character and makes you learn about yourself more and you know what you’re actually made of. That, to some people, don’t mean a lot as compared to doing what’s ‘normal’ or ‘by right’. It all comes down to choices and personality, there’s no right or wrong as to what you believe in or what you don’t believe in. What matters is that you know you have lived an actual life. One that you can proudly say to yourself was good despite everything.

Japan to release a coloured Batman statue for Arkham City’s Collectors’ Edition


Just like always, Japan has to have the most special of common things. And in this case, they will be receiving a coloured version of the Batman statue for the Collector’s Edition of Arkham City.

 

This launches in November for Japan, a month later than the rest of the world. They say the statues are more or less the same, only coloured. But who are they kidding? The coloured version is so much more detailed! Especially the cape! Curses!!!!!

This song’s talking about you Japan.

Real Superheroes?


As mentioned in comic vine, there are ‘real superheroes’ in the U.S. and are even registered! I don’t really understand their concept of a ‘superhero’, let alone needing to register to be one. But HBO has a documentary on them. Here’s the trailer.

Check list for DC’s New 52


This is the checklist for the new issues of #1s taken from: http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/08/08/dc-comics-new-52-shipping-checklist/
This September marks a turning point in the publishing history of DC Comics, who will launch or in many cases relaunch no fewer than 52 titles from issue #1, including such venerable institutions like Action Comics and Detective Comics. Called “The New 52,” the initiative is a daring effort to attract new and lapsed readers to DC Comics’ iconic characters, nearly all of whom have been retooled and redesigned (some radically so) in a manner the publisher hopes will be more palatable for a 21st century audience.

The “New 52″ begins August 31 with the same-day-digital release of Justice League #1 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, which can be purchased at comic book stores everywhere. Below you will find a convenient on-sale checklist graphic as well as a copy-and-paste-ready version to help navigate what fans are calling the DCnÜ.

And a printable version we edited for you, because we <3 you

Concept art of Solomon Grundy


Hello! it’s been quite a while I realized, and while nothing has been going on here, lots have been going on in the Nolan’s Batman universe, e.g. The Cat suit.

However this post is about Arkham City’s new character concept art: Solomon Grundy! Poor Solomon Grundy. At least now he gets a little of the lime light for once!

He looks too much of a zombie in my opinion. I was kinda expecting Grundy in the comic world look.

Speaking of Arkham City, there is also a limited collectors’ edition release of the game.

The contents are as follows…

The CE includes a Batman statue by Kotobukiya, an artbook, a downloadable soundtrack, early access to the “Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map” and a Dark Knight Returns-style skin, and a copy of the Batman: Gotham Knight animated movie.

Dark Knight Rises’ Unicorn


As pointed out by my friend Wobbles. hahahaha!
