From Red Sonja #8 by gailsimone.
Sonja doesn’t get foodies!
July 23rd, 2014 marks Batman’s 75th birthday. Happy Batman Day!
The perils of the Texas romance.
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.
Happy Batman Day from a boy who needed saving.
I think I need all of these Mondo 7” that feature the original score for Batman: The Animated Series. These will be available at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night, but I suspect they will be on sale at the Mondo Shop afterwards.
MY BIRTHDAY IS A MONTH AND A HALF AWAY.
This is such a gorgeous title panel for so many reasons, but my favorite detail is Jill’s university degree on the wall, so beautifully framed just above her head.
I’ve assumed Jill has a PhD, but I can’t recall it ever being specified in the comics. A “diploma” is typically for completion of high school in the U.S., but it can mean any academic degree.
I don’t know if the names of university degrees were different in the 1940s or if the artist just didn’t want to specify, but it would be highly unusual for a woman in the 1940s to have a PhD. However, in another story the neurosurgeon Dr. Denning (obviously an MD) also has his “university diploma” framed on the wall:
And in an earlier story, Jill also has a framed diploma above her desk in her office(!), which I like to think means she has multiple degrees, some of which she displays in her lab, some of which she displays in her office.
Like you do when you are a completely fabulous, independently wealthy super-scientist, inventor, and freelance detective.

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO
Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
