There's been some confusion over the comic pages
I posted this morning. For what purpose did I post them? What even are they?
Obviously, there was a communications failure on my side. I suspect, after 3 hours of word balloons, I was just *really sick* of looking at words. Everyone should just KNOW my intentions.
The pages aren't from a "real" comic: I found some unrelated art which (with a couple small tweaks) served my purposes, and re-dialogued them entirely! The pages are now a scene that should logically follow the end of the War of the Supermen
miniseries, yet does not.
If you read the New Kypton/War of the Supermen
story - and I don't recommend it, if only because it seems like DC got bored in the middle of several storylines and concluded with (fairly literally) "Rocks fall; everyone dies"
- you were treated to a plot in which the humans blow up a populated planet out of xenophobia
, for which the only consequence I noticed was a sad editorial by Lois Lane
, after which she flew in Superman's arms towards a hopeful sunrise. Or maybe a sunset, it doesn't really matter
. [scans or it didn't happen
My reaction was basically, "Whaaaaaaaaat?"
So I put together a scene*
in which some of the DCU's aliens call us on that shit. (I was waiting for someone more "official" to do it for me, but, well...) Because yes, we live in a vacuum, but we live in a vacuum full of other populated planets who should frown on such actions. If only out of self interest. (The DCU's aliens tend towards jackassery, with luck I got that across?)*I don't know what to call it. Illustrated fanfic? Narrative meta? Too much screwing around with Photoshop?
