stitchingatthecircuitboard said: hey! sorry to intrude, but i saw your ask re: babs to dcwomenkickingass, and i'd recommend the bold & the brave #33, oracle year one (in batman chronicles #5), and the birds of prey series (preboot style) for more of babs being amazing. happy reading!
Thank you very much. I will definitely check those out. I also managed to find a few issues of the Ostrander/Vale “Suicide Squid” where they updated the character. Again, thanks for the suggestion.
How reliable are memories?
The Shape She Makes, a world premiere in rehearsal at the American Repertory Theater, explores memory through movement with a performance blending theatre and dance.
"Shape" is the story of a young woman whose childhood memories are as fluid as the world around us. And if you think the world is in a fairly solid state, a classroom scene at the top of Act 2 will change your mind.
“Every single human being, whether they act or write or sing or live or walk around gaily talking to others, everything must be yours-very personal and entirely your own. Doing this will take it’s toll. It upsets the mediocre and the safe-which is to say the majority. But if you give a damn about doing good work, about making things that matter, about allowing what you love to persevere, then you have to run straight out and away from everything but your own heart, your own emotional inventory, and do what only you can do.”
“We’ve been dressing the same since we were kids.”
“Do you think alike?”
“Yes, we do.”
“Do you ever fight?”
“Sometimes we do, and we feel very bad afterwards. It’s not good to quarrel. We’re born-again Christians. Fighting, anger, envy—they’re all sins of the flesh. We don’t like this world. We don’t feel right in it. We’re not of this world. I guess we like clothes, but that’s not a sin. That’s the only thing we like. We only partake in what’s necessary. We don’t drink or dance or do anything that the world does, like get all drunk on New Year’s Eve. That’s all sin. There’s so much violence and vile things on TV. We always shut it off or change the channel. The only channels we watch now are 44 and 2. It’s a terrible, terrible world and it will end very, very soon.”
“There are things we don’t understand. Sometimes we wonder why bad things never seem to happen to bad people; they happen only to good people.This is a horrible, ugly world.”
I want to know so much more about these two…
BLOOD ON CHRISTMAS
A Short Crime Tale of The Shadow
by Francesco Francavilla
Hello Pulp Friends,
hope you all are having a joyful time with your families and friends during these holidays :)
To put you even more in the Xmas mood, here’s a full complete story, a silent tale in the tradition of LULLUBY.
Some of you will remember this story: originally aired here on Pulp Sunday in December 2007, in a strip format, I am re-airing today in re-mastered first-time-in-color version, and in a comic format.
Hope you all enjoy what I consider a “Margot Year Zero" tale: yep, the girl in the story is what will become the future assistant of Lamont Creston/The SHADOW! :)

Have a Pulp Sunday everyone! :)
