Just look at it.

LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO ROSE RAVAGER WILSON.

WHAT THE HELL.

WHAT THE BLOODY FUCKING HELL.

(I ran out of photo room, but there are more of her… to be continued in another post)

I think this is a bit of an over reaction. Artwork aside (from a technical level), the design actually isn’t that bad (the hair took some getting used to but that grew on me after a while), and has a potential if handled by a better artist (the art in this particular issue was fairly sub par all around, especially on faces in several panels).

But the outfit is perfectly fine from a tactical/practical perspective, and again the hair was jarring at first but has potential. Overall I think the reason it looks so terrible is because the art itself was poor (here’s a portrait of Future’s End Rose by a better artist). On a writing level, at least, this was probably the most readable/enjoyable Rose of the New 52 so far.

Thanks for the shout out on my art ! :D 

Oh, that yours?

… I’m sorry, which part of the art did you do? :)

That is, I don’t see a name “lucas remoussin” anyplace really, but that could just be your tumblr alias-?

From what I’m looking up, I got Ben Caldwell on pencils and inks, and Michael Atiyeh on colors as far as interiors. Or were you an assistant artist that didn’t make it into the credits? I hate when they do that… it’s so unfair.

It’s cool when the professionals do things like tumblr or other places besides twitter (I think they’re all on twitter…XD). If this is yours, I’d love to credit you with a link when I post your work from the comics. :D I bitch about the design of Rose here (seriously… *facepalm*) and I’m honestly not a fan of the art style—I find it creepy—But it’s unique, and that much is respectable. My own art style is “creepy” to others (and myself a bit), but it’s “me.” I may not like the style, but I don’t hold that against the artist. If I did, I’d have to hold my own style against myself! lmao~

He actually did the sketch that I linked. The one that you called worse than the art that was in the issue.

BAHAHA—-as if that link is any better. Actually, it’s worse, TBH.

Also take into account that some people paint their reaction in a humorous context for the sake of fun. Do you really think, rosewilsontheravager, that I sat in my chair actually screaming out loud “bloody fucking hell”-? If I did, then yes, that definitely would be an overreaction. And not a bit of one, but a rather drastic one.

I didn’t go into detail on the design’s arrangements, because I’m going to do that elsewhere. Here, I was just being funny (and honest).

If you like the design I’m glad for you, but I’m thinking of Rose’s personality (her “real” self, not any Nu52 bullshit), and this design? No. Just no. To be perfectly honest, the hair is THE WORST thing by far about this design. It’s beyond shitty, and that’s only speaking on part of Rose’s character/ persona. In my own personal opinion of the design… I love it. It’s not only fine, but cute looking. Just… NOT on Rose. It doesn’t matter if I love it or not, it’s not “her.” That’s what matters most. On someone else of a better suited personality, this outfit would be awesome as hell.

And I’m not an advocate of the phrase “better than nothing”, which is to say “well at least this version of Rose was the best so far…” I do not play that shit. Saying that is practically telling DC comics to not get any better from their horrific low standards. If it helps you get by the day to accept something just because it’s the best so far, even if it’s still far from what it should/could be, then I’m glad for you.

Not my thing, darlin’. :)

There have been a couple of times that I saw someone actually write Slade as almost sounding like himself in the Nu52, but I still said “yeah… ALMOST. Not even 90% there, though…” it’s like they only know how to write David Cain in an eyepatch or something.

Though as far as the “fairly sub par” art all around, it was definitely below “sub par.” The lips just freaked the hell out of me, especially on Superboy. It’s like “what the hell’s wrong with his face???” But I just figured that was the artist’s personal style, annoying as it was to me personally. I never begrudge an artist their personal style. My own isn’t as “beautiful” as other professional’s styles, and even though I can match them in detail and proportion (name any comic book artist. I can match them. Not kidding), it’s still not “me.” Knowing how I feel about my own style, I never once held against this artist that their style was “IMO” creepy as f***.

The design is what it is regardless of the artist’s style.

I was, at first, thrilled that they were bringing Rose back in, since I haven’t seen hide nor hair of her in a DAMN long time (unless she’s been in recent books that I haven’t read yet—is she in the Superboy books lately?) but I was a fool… It’s the Nu52. I swear, it’s like no one knows how to write ANY of the Wilsons. Liefeld needs to have his hands cut off for what he did in the previous Deathstroke series. And the kicker is that someone COULD come along, pick up Rose and Joey (since he didn’t actually die at the end of Liefeld’s books) and give them something decent, but has anyone even touched Joey after Liefeld? I don’t blame them for treating the whole thing like a cancer they don’t even want to look at, but after all this time doing nothing with them (and this Rose we were talking about was five years in the future, so technically, present time in-story, she’s still in limbo) they’re practically raw clay with nothing but the consistency of their personalities to mold for any story. Yet… they do nothing with these two. All that potential, all that value… and nothing done with it.

……………. ooookay, I’ve strayed WAY too far off topic ^_^; I could be all dishonest and delete that, but… no reason to. :) Sorry, bout that, though. >_>’


But yeah, if you ever hear me “screaming” in all caps about a comic book, chances are, I’m just typing out my initial reaction (I bet your initial reaction to this version of Rose was “colorful” too ;D) in a humorous and mostly honest way. A little trumped up for humor, but not by much. I won’t take it back, but I’m sorry if it offended at all. :)

(some people think that just beacuse I don’t take it back makes the apology fake… they’re actually MORE offended when I say “no offense.” Makes no sense to me but *shrug*…)

Uh, sigh, yeah, you really rambled here, um… I really didn’t plan on sitting down to type up this much fresh off work, but… okay let’s break down a few things…

BAHAHA—-as if that link is any better. Actually, it’s worse, TBH.

I guess that’s personal preference, but I’m not really sure how you consider it worse than what was in the actual issue (because it was truly awful in that issue).

If you like the design I’m glad for you, but I’m thinking of Rose’s personality (her “real” self, not any Nu52 bullshit), and this design? No. Just no. To be perfectly honest, the hair is THE WORST thing by far about this design. It’s beyond shitty, and that’s only speaking on part of Rose’s character/ persona. In my own personal opinion of the design… I love it. It’s not only fine, but cute looking. Just… NOT on Rose. It doesn’t matter if I love it or not, it’s not “her.” That’s what matters most. On someone else of a better suited personality, this outfit would be awesome as hell.

Let me add that I by no mean think that this is the best Rose design ever or anything like that… far, far from it, in fact. I’m simply speaking in reference of what it is. As a different version of Rose (that’s key here—the Rose we knew and loved is never coming back, and yes I hate it as much as you do, if not more so), it’s a fine design. It’s unique, and the hair, again, personal preference. It would never work on the “real” Rose, obviously, but at least her hair is actually tied back when fighting, so points for that. It’s different, and obviously you hate it, I did too at first, but it grew on me. The style it’s drawn in, though, in that issue, makes it look a lot worse than I think it could be if done better, and it is definitely way too long.

But I’m curious as to why the outfit is not “her”? I mean, it seems to be a very practical tactical suit, and honestly if you put the “real” Rose in that gear I think she’d look just fine (actually she wore something very similar to it under the alias of “Skill” in three issues of Robin v.4). Personal tastes, though, I guess. I mean, it’s no Ravager costume, but I like it better than most the other crap she’s been dressed in during this shitty reboot.

And I’m not an advocate of the phrase “better than nothing”, which is to say “well at least this version of Rose was the best so far…” I do not play that shit. Saying that is practically telling DC comics to not get any better from their horrific low standards. If it helps you get by the day to accept something just because it’s the best so far, even if it’s still far from what it should/could be, then I’m glad for you.

Oh I think you misunderstand me. When I say “this was the most readable Rose of the New 52 so far, so at least there’s that”, I am in no way saying I am content. In fact, I am FAR from content. I LOATHE everything about the New 52 and a good 95% of what’s been done to Rose (I think the only thing I actually really liked was her friendship with Caitlin Fairchild way at the beginning of the New 52, but wouldn’t you know it, they went and fucked that up too).

I would kill a tiger with my bare hands and saw off my own leg to get the pre-boot Rose back, especially circa Fresh Hell. But, as much as I hate it, that’s not going to happen… so I have to at least try to survive with what we have. As much as I loathe the New 52 Rose, I keep reading her because she’s still my favorite character, and I still have hope that maybe someone someday will turn her around. It’s foolish, maybe, but then a lot of time that’s what hope is.

Not my thing, darlin’. :)

I can’t tell if you’re just being friendly or if you’re patronizing me…

Though as far as the “fairly sub par” art all around, it was definitely below “sub par.” The lips just freaked the hell out of me, especially on Superboy. It’s like “what the hell’s wrong with his face???” But I just figured that was the artist’s personal style, annoying as it was to me personally. I never begrudge an artist their personal style. My own isn’t as “beautiful” as other professional’s styles, and even though I can match them in detail and proportion (name any comic book artist. I can match them. Not kidding), it’s still not “me.” Knowing how I feel about my own style, I never once held against this artist that their style was “IMO” creepy as f***.

Okay, yeah I was just trying to be kind. If I were to be completely honest on my thoughts about the art in that issue, I’d say something like “I can’t believe this is what passes as professional comic art these days”, buuut… yeah I didn’t want to be too harsh.

I was, at first, thrilled that they were bringing Rose back in, since I haven’t seen hide nor hair of her in a DAMN long time (unless she’s been in recent books that I haven’t read yet—is she in the Superboy books lately?) but I was a fool… It’s the Nu52. 

She was in the last several Superboy issues…. but news flash, she sucked there too (You know how during her last appearance last year, Slade freed her from NOWHERE and she didn’t have to work for Harvest anymore or worry about him trying to kill her? Well, guess what she’s doing in these issues. Yup, working for NOWHERE again…. BECAUSE THAT MAKES TOTAL SENSE RIGHT??).

I swear, it’s like no one knows how to write ANY of the Wilsons.

All I want is for Sean McKeever to get his hands on Rose again… I would kill for it. He’s the one writer I think understood her best, at least in my opinion. Fresh Hell is still my all time favorite Rose story, and Terror Titans wasn’t bad either.

……………. ooookay, I’ve strayed WAY too far off topic ^_^; I could be all dishonest and delete that, but… no reason to. :) Sorry, bout that, though. >_>

No no, no worries…  just way more than I was expecting to get in response to that.

Rose and Joseph love to go to the mall food court and people watch. Joseph signs what he believes a passerby is thinking. Rose often falls out her seat laughing.

Awww, yes, so much this.

Capone prided himself as a man with style. If he ever killed someone himself, or one of his henchmen killed an important person, hundreds of dollars worth of flowers was sent to the funeral. In one fight between Capone’s men and another gang, an innocent woman was shot, not fatally, and required hospital treatment. Capone personally paid for all the hospital fees. He also would pay for all children’s hospital bills when he visited.

Wait, what about that dude who he beat to death for attacking one of his collection men? He just threw a couple of hundred or whatever at the witnesses and told them to pay for the funeral.

Just because he considered himself a man of style doesn’t mean he couldn’t be also a blazing hypocrite. 

Fun Fact: My great great (maybe another great?) uncle was Al Capone’s driver.

Fucking Texas, man.

A court has upheld the constitutional right of Texans to photograph strangers as an essential component of freedom of speech - even if those images should happen to be surreptitious “upskirt” pictures of women taken for the purposes of sexual gratification.

Criticising an anti-“creepshot” law as a “paternalistic” intrusion on a person’s right to be aroused, the Texas court of criminal appeals struck down part of the state’s “improper photography or visual recording” statute which banned photographing, broadcasting or transmitting a visual image of another person without the other’s consent and with the intention to “arouse or gratify … sexual desire”.

Fuck Texas. Seriously.
