More photos from MCM London Comic Con! :-)
Red Hood and the Outlaws #008
Jason and Tim
This just goes to show how out of the loop I am with Outlaws, which I drifted away from some time ago. The artwork still makes me swoon, but wait! Jason and Tim getting along with each other… and them both eating Alfred’s waffles together like a wonderful Sunday tea party?
That’s weird. Aww.
In Flanders Fields
May 1915, by Lt. Col. John McCrae, MD (Canadian, 1872-1918)
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
'They ask me where I've been,
And what I’ve done and seen.
But what can I reply
Who know it wasn’t I,
But someone just like me,
Who went across the sea
And with my head and hands
Killed men in foreign lands…
Though I must bear the blame,
Because he bore my name.’

I have to say, I love the John Lewis Christmas advert this year (not that I didn’t love the previous ones). They’ve been very clever with this and managed to make a marketable sub-brand out of it too.
I guess the designer in me is just winking and going ‘eeeeey!’ :D
Caption from the Jason Todd Collective:
'This was my costume for the MCM London Comic Con (or London MCM Expo as it was also known) this past weekend. I must admit that playing ‘Jacyn Todd’ (as my friend dubbed the female variant of Jason) was pretty sweet, as it meant I got to sit about and hang around a lot looking miffed!
The highlight of the trip though? Bumping into the Joker who greeted me like an old friend… and proceeded to grab me in a headlock, use my own dagger against me and shout ‘Has anyone got a crowbar?!’
That pagliacci jerk. ;D’

I’m embarrassed already (but it was a lot of fun!) XD
Argh! I said I’d have photos to share from London MCM Comic Con… and then disappeared into the ether. Sorry, life throws spanners.
*Erhem*, anyway, my friend and I have pooled our photos into this Flickr account. View at your
