I do not, but my best friend is a fan and has convinced me to start it eventually : ) 

As with everything, it comes down to a matter of my time

Cassandra Cain Appearances: What To Buy

renaroo:

image

In celebration of Gotham, DC is holding a huge Gotham Central and other GCPD related stories sale on Comixology.com. A particularly interesting choice as my love for the comic series Gotham Central is largely what set the bar so high I’m not that interested in Gotham.

But, unfortunately, Cassandra Cain fans won’t get their fix from these comic pages — if anyone’s interested in my recs for Gotham Central feel free to ask me — but let’s talk about the comics on sale that do have our favorite forgotten Bat…

Batman: No Man’s Land

Batman (1940-2011) #567: “The Mark of Cain, Part I” (First Appearance!)
Detective Comics (1937-2011) #734: “The Mark of Cain, Part II”

Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #120: “Assembly” (First as Batgirl)

Azrael: Agent of the Bat (1995-2003) #56: “Scratch, Part I”
Azrael: Agent of the Bat (1995-2003) #57: “Scratch, Part II”

The Batman Chronicles (1995-2001) #18: “Spiritual Currency”

Robin (1993-2009) #70: “Big Freeze, Part III” *

Batman (1940-2011) #569: “I Cover the Warfront”

Batman: Shadow of the Bat #92: “Stormy Weather” *

Robin (1993-2009) #73: “Missing: Tim Drake”

Batman: No Man’s Land: Secret Files (1999) #1

Azrael: Agent of the Bat (1995-2003) #60: “Evacuation” (Cass vs. Joker kinda)

Detective Comics (1937-2011) #741: “Endgame, Part III” *

Azrael: Agent of the Bat (1995-2003) #61: “Presents of Mind”

Batman: Officer Down

Robin (1993-2009) #86: “Officer Down, Part III” *Birds of Prey (1999-2009) #27: “Officer Down, Part IV” *
Catwoman (1993-2001) #90: “Officer Down, Part V”

* Cass only appears to cameo or has a very minimal role.

I should note that Cass’ own series issue, Batgirl (2000-2006) #12, is “Officer Down, Part II” but is not included in the sale.

Personal recommendations: “The Mark of Cain, Part I-II”, “Assembly”, “Scratch, Part I-II”, “I Cover the Warfront”, “Evacuation”, and “Presents of Mind.”

Happy buying, Cass fans : )

Anonymous said: Not attacking the anon or anything, but I'd like to counter that Steph's series was NOT cancelled over low sales, it was cancelled because of the reboot. Its sales weren't actually that bad, and were outselling some of DC's other titles by a decent amount, especially Teen Titans and Supergirl. Hate the girl, but get your facts right first. Sorry, but that had to be brought up.

No, that’s completely fair and, more to the point, true. 

DC has formed a habit of cancelling well performing Batgirl series that has better sales than the majority of other DC titles.

Under no circumstances can I say this is not ridiculously funny.

Anonymous said: Are you comic book Jesus? Because you handled that anon beautifully.

I doubt it highly. Comic book Jesus was drawn by Joe Kubert.

But thank you regardless. I stand by it — everyone’s entitled to their opinions and occasional venting. And I wasn’t called names or poked at for insecurities for once. So it’s not nearly as hard as usual.

Bridget Clancy, Dick’s former landlord, appears post-Bludhaven as a counselor/therapist. She’s not a superhero but did counsel Nightwing some.
Was she? I thought she went to med school
Regardless!!! Counts in my book!!!
Perry White gave really good advise to Clark from time to time.
Mmmmm. I think this is officially stretching it XD
But you’re right, Perry’s a big help. When he’s not raking Clark over the coals!

Anonymous said: Oh man thank you for your comments on the characters you don't like. I cannot for the life of me stand Stephanie Brown. People treat her like she is the greatest thing to ever hit comics which I can never understand because she's pretty generic. It always irks me that she never really earned the Robin role and Cass was made to give her the batgirl suit. Still can't believe how her fans snap at DC and its writers for cancelling her Batgirl series when in fact it was due to low sales

Man that hate meme has gotten me the weirdest messages today.

So I’ll just state again, that was a meme where I had to list everything I hated about the subjects I was given, not that I actually hated the subject. I filled out one for Cass, too, though, admittedly, it wasn’t nearly as heartfelt as the others. I don’t actually hate Steph? She’s just not one of my favorite characters. Which isn’t saying a lot because I have thousands of characters that “aren’t in my top 20” and I love them with every part of my being.

I gotta say, anon, that’s a pretty big can of worms you’re opening, and I don’t agree with a lot of it, but I appreciate that sometimes it can feel overwhelming if you don’t like something that the majority seems to, and I’m glad you can vent in my inbox and encourage you to continue doing so because everyone deserves to get their opinion out there.

Everyone else, please don’t attack me or the anon for this post.

Hey, it’s like my mom — HEY MY MOM IS A LISCENSED COUNSELOR, ANON, THAT COUNTS SHE’S A SUPERHERO — says, “it’s way more important to know what you’re not doing than what you want to do”

But yeah, that dichotomy with Harl just fascinates me to no end X3

That’s right! thanks!

Anonymous said: Do you know of any superheroes in the mainstream DC universe that are licensed psychologists/counselors/therapists?

Lots of scientists and more than a few villains, but that’s not really an occupation heroes seem to fill often, does it?

Doctor Mid-nite (Pieter Cross) has acted as a therapist a few times, but his profession is literally a medical doctor and I’m always uncomfortable with fiction blurring the very real lines between medical doctor and psychiatric doctor.

Harley Quinn — if you consider her a chaotic neutral — is a psychologist. I wouldn’t go to her, personally.

There’s a few times where Black Lightning (Jefferson Pierce) would act as a counselor to kids along with teacher & principle in “troubled school districts.”

Can anyone else help anon with this?

Anonymous said: What's Tim's flaws and issues, please ?

renaroo:

My biggest apology, anon, because I wanted to do this question justice but considering the numerous responsibilities I have to my schoolwork and such, I’m just not going to be able to go into the depth I really wanted to on replying to this with canon images and what not. Hopefully I’ll be able to follow up on that someday with a more thorough post, because saying “more of my opinions and the comic pages can be found in my #Tim Drake tag” would be a needlessly cruel exercise in wasting people’s time.

Also shout out to red-dye-number-five, thecoattale, redundantthinking and ephemeraltea for being super awesome and encouraging my Tim Drake feels lately : )

I also feel responsible for stating that that while I do try to stick to canon in all my interpretations, they are my interpretations at the end of the day and so it’s completely within reason to disagree with me  unless it’s like actual events from the comics. Like don’t look at me and say “Tim’s relationship with Jack was perfect” or “Tim never made Steph cry” because that’s just not the case.

This is relevant to earlier conversations.

Also this picked up in popularity again earlier this week? Was there a reason for that?

It’s petty malice, plain as day.
Call it as we see it, I say.
Let’s @ the hell out of twitter.com/cmxsupp… about it.
HELL YEAH… shit now I have to make a twitter.
UGH. My sister wins another bet. Damn it.
For the cause, though.

Catwoman #90 wasn’t even available before this sale.

I know because I checked last Wednesday with the back issue updates to see if it was posted yet so I could check off another Cass appearance to my collection.

It was added for this sale.

And they couldn’t add an issue of Cass’ series to the sale.

Okay but really. I’m actually super angry that every part of Officer Down is on sale.

Except the pivotal second part.

Which is the only issue of Cass’ series that would have made this sale.

You can’t. Fucking. Tell me. This is still a coincidence at this point.
