Some one other than Grant Morrison actually makes a DC comic that looks worth reading for the first time in years and you’re against it. Check.
Has Grant Morrison made something worth reading? ;)
I’ll agree that there hasn’t been much of DC’s worth reading in years, but all of this is just our opinions. I just don’t put much stock into this story, how it’s shaping up (with the exception of Babs Tarr’s art, which is always fantastic). It just, to me, seems really contrived and a scramble to make the character as contemporary as possible when in fact it’s going to be just as dated in 6 months as the New 52 reboot is now. I mean how many times are these characters going to be regurgitated just slightly? It’s just a constant mopping up operation over at DC these days (or since 1994, but who’s really counting right?). But again, this is all just my subjective take…I don’t believe I’m going to change anyone’s opinions. I’m just looking out for a book that will look interesting to me. Honestly, a book about a young woman with an extreme lifestyle that’s written and edited by a bunch of guys many years older than her is something I’m predisposed to being very critical of.
AKA DC, “WE’RE ALL OUT OF IDEAS!”

Cut a slightly longer version of this to video, hope you like it!
I love it when one of my paintings takes off and gets thousands of notes, really, it makes me feel like I’m doing something right and it’s so flattering and I love it and I love you guys. However, I get really, really frustrated and sad when some bloggers remove my credit line and replace it with a star or heart or triangle or some other dumb symbol with no other credit given to me. Or when someone replaces my credit line with “FOLLOW MY BLOG FOR MORE IMAGES LIKE THIS!” One, it makes it seem like you were the creator or original uploader…which you are not. Those might even be bot blogs that include those bait lines I don’t know…but really that is just tactless and desperate, does anyone actually fall for that?
The reason why I like tumblr is because I really enjoy the idea of just sharing things-sharing what we like, what we make, what we discovered, but please just give credit where credit is due. I know if someone sees my work but does not see that I made it, it just becomes another random image on tumblr. Sure, there might be a rare occasion that someone really likes it, so they bother to track down the original poster or maybe even will do a reverse image search. Those people are the people that I’d want following me and those are the people that I want to get in contact with…but in reality that’s not what tumblr is about. It’s a fast paced website and if an image is lacking credit in the description it is highly unlikely someone will actually go out of their way to figure out the source, even if it is just checking out the source blog.
I know there are thousands of other posts like the one I’m making right now of people gripping about this very same issue so I don’t really know why I’m even making this post, I guess just so vent this frustration out into the world.
But really…if you don’t like how descriptions look on your blog…just get a theme that hides the description!
Absolutely. If all you’re doing is just reblogging stuff into the ether not actually contributing anything original, and you remove a creator’s description (which aside from a credit line, in many cases has something written that functions in tandem with the visual/sonic work), then you can skip me altogether. You want to use someone’s work as a personal advertisement, you better PAY them first or get on your way.
