Black Canary Tied Up By Sportsmaster

There: it’s the title of the post. Happy now?

What am I talking about, you may ask? This is a reaction to me glancing at the search terms used by people in the big wide world that bring them to this little corner of the web, in particular, these terms:

There’s a few references to boobs that always crop up ever since I posted this little item back last year, and most of the other phrases aren’t unusual for a comics blog (though “amazon” sounds randomly generic!) but it’s that fourth one down which caught my eye and became the title of this post.

That really is quite specific; not only are people looking for Black Canary, they want her tied up; but not only tied up, but tied up specifically by Sportsmaster.

I performed the same search in Google:

No surprise, then, that this blog is the first text result and also the second image result, all because of this post from a couple of months ago. The rest of the results were clips from one animated Batman show or another before getting into the realms of fan-fiction, about which I will take the advice of Earth-2’s Jimmy Olsen.

Fan fiction about Black Canary being tied up? Not for me, thanks.

DC’s December Solicitations

Honestly, it’s always baffled me why DC release their solicits in about five or six different posts; thank goodness Newsarama habitually collate them all into one. Here’s December’s; let’s see what we’ve got, eh?

Harley’s Little Black Book #1

Harley’s Little Black Book #1 – not something I’ll be picking up monthly, but will probably grab in the trade; long been a fan of Palmiotti’s writing and Conner’s art is never less than gorgeous.

Justice League #47

Justice League #47 – I’m enjoying the Darkseid War storyline so far and the use of the Anti-Monitor and the Crime Syndicate is always a plus.

Earth 2 Society #7

Earth 2: Society #7 – the solicitation mentions Dr Impossible – is that Jimmy Olsen on the cover and is he Dr Impossible?

Secret Six #9

Secret Six #9 – if I wasn’t already getting (and thoroughly enjoying) this title, the solicit of “The team’s attempt to defend the Earth from invasion by the Elder Gods takes them to a creepy New England town, inhabited by one very nasty creature.” Secret Six vs Elder Gods? Sold!

Green Lantern #47

Green Lantern #47 – Sonar’s back! What do you think, Bito Wladen or the guy from Kyle Rayner’s run with metal sticking out of him? My money’s on Bito.

And conspicuous by its absence is Green Lantern: The Lost Army #7 which should be out in December. Another title biting the dust?

The above isn’t everything I’m getting (there’s Aquaman and Justice League of America for example) but that’s what caught my eye.
