wonderful people have joined the community before the project is barely even beginning, figure I'll make some posts and such and whee.
Writers and artists alike, or even those who want to comprehend these characters while simply reading and enjoying our fantastic stuff
that DC wishes they were as talented as us
, there is some essential reading to be able to write these guys. I'll need some of you, with the comics available, and myself even, to be scanning or writing things up and posting it into this community so I can make memories of it.
Basically, what I need is:
The Question (various issues) - I'll take care of this, since I own almost every issue
and I'm insanely obsessive.
Blue Beetle - Any various appearances. I realize, at least, there are some places that have issues with Beetle that's up and ready to read, thankfully by both the community 'beetlemania' and Edward's posts in scans_daily; I'll make links available soon.
Booster Gold - Again, Edward has made wonderful scans with him and Beetle in scans_daily; I will be making links ASAP. However, if there's any glorious character bits that he hasn't posted (anything with his background or anything further with his temper) I'm asking someone to make scans and make a post in scans_daily so I can link it up. That is, particularly, if LadyM has anything to add. She knows Booster Gold's character best of all here, I imagine. :D
Guy Gardner - Beyond being an asshole and the occasional (very, very occasional) softie, I barely know much about his background. Ergo, he's difficult to make plots for. If anyone has information we can snag or scans, make 'em. I know Jay has some Guy Gardner plotbunnies, thankfully, but it'd still be helpful for the rest of us. :D
Fire - One of the more difficult characters, I think. Beyond her friendship with the late Tora and her very strong personality, I haven't much of a clue of her history. I know her history with the JLA and JLI, but that's about my limit. Can anyone enlighten us?
Elongated Man - I know his personality; it's pretty easy to comprehend. So's his history. Fortunately, there's a site called 'Dibny Dirt' with information. However, I'd still like some scans with any essential reading on his achievements and activity. I know Kiffie has some Silver Age comics with him in it, and I hope she plans to make some scans.
Some other essential reading:
Identity Crisis - I have this on my computer. I'll make scans soon
even if I really hate this mini-series.
It's not the greatest story - but, we're writing events based off of this. It's important. I will post scans ASAP.
Countdown to Infinite Crisis - A big duh here. However, you don't have to read it, it's still kind of suggested so you can understand a bit about the scarab and crap. Edward has already made scans. I will make links soon. I will also post up any other scans that might be important.
O.M.A.C. Project - I only suggest scans of this so we can appropriately address this during the Mavericks storyline. I haven't bought any comics of this myself. If anyone has it, please make scans so we can comprehend what exactly the O.M.A.C. Project is about. I've only been making guesses so far and B.S.ing my way around it
which seems to be working because no one's called me out on this yet, thank God!
Villains United - Well, probably not heavily essential. I'm just curious - what's Dr. Light's role in this?Does anyone know? I'd like to. Oh yes, would I ever.
Any information we can have about Checkmate? I don't actually know much about it, just that it's a government program, and that's it. I've been B.S.ing my way with this too. I know it's existed previously, but Countdown was actually my first time reading about it.
I'm ignoring the Rann/Thanagar War thing. This is JLA business. However, if someone wants to address it, I'm not stopping you.
I promise to make links soon. For now, be on the lookout, and plan. BWA HA HA HA.
If you guys have any questions and can't get ahold of me by AIM, start posting them here. The community's here, we can start using it, even if Mavericks isn't even technically started yet.
