oh man oh man don’t even mention the nu52 wally to me like I was so excited when I found out he was going to be a poc but then they made him 12 and a delinquent and ruined his relationship with his aunt and it just keeps getting worse and worse wHY

wait

they did……what……?

this is what i get for not keeping up with dc as well as i used to. the lAST THING I SAW OF HIM WAS A SCAN OF HIM BEING ALIVE AFTER HIS REALLY AWFUL INTRODUCTION (aka him being a dead teen in the future. always a nice way to introduce a poc character.) but god, no wHY

This is very late but thank you so much for the post on Wally not being abused in the comics. I get annoyed when people try to make a big deal out of it, and I always link your post to explain it. So thank you!

it’s been 2+ years since i wrote that but i still feel very strongly about it. i honestly have my problems with how the Flash series handled wally’s parents, but at least it kept his father’s behaviour as a mostly heel-face-turn from how he acted during wally’s childhood. it was a surprising twist, even though later writers tried to use it to retcon wally’s entire past. bleh.

plus the fact that the young justice fandom was rampant with it is also bothersome because you have a bunch of characters with diverse backgrounds - one who DID come from a broken and abusive home (artemis) but the fandom would rather focus on wally’s non-existent manpain. 

but thank you :) this message means a lot.

Newtype August 2014 - Free! high res scans + translation Part 1

Here is the little surprise I’ve been talking about a few days ago.

To celebrate this blog reaching one thousand followers, please have an english scanlation of this month’ Newtype. 

I did the magazine scans, cleaning and typesetting, kudouusagi did the whole translation, and ccparadise proofread and helped with typesetting. So, if you enjoy this read, please visit their blog and thank them warmly, for that couldn’t have been done without them!

As you can read in the post title, this is the first part only, there is more to come in the near future!
