Here’s the topic; you can read the entire announcement at the link.
Tomorrow, I will be hosting aFeminist Friday Discussion, which will be aboutchildren and youth media, mostly television and movies, but also literature.
I know the notice is a little short, but I encourage everyone who’s been contributing to our Friday discussions here to check out Natacha’s post and discuss it tomorrow. I’ll reblog it with a brief comment once it’s posted, and will join in on Natacha’s thread.
I’m excited that the discussion is being hosted on another blog this week. When we started this, I hoped we could keep it going long enough to move it around a bit; and it seems we have done that.
Good day, everyone! I want to give you a brief rundown of the character of Dick Grayson in the years since he stopped being Robin. For most comics readers under the age of 40, Grayson has always been Nightwing, a moniker (oddly enough) originally associated with Superman in the form of a Kryptonian street vigilante in the Bottled City of Kandor (pre-Crisis). Again, weirdness thrived in the Silver Age.
Originally drawing on interactions with Superman (it gets convoluted), Dick Grayson served as Nightwing pretty much continuously from 1984 (pre-Crisis)/1985 (post-Crisis) until 2009 during the Death of Bruce Wayne storyline. (Please check the links if you’d like a rundown of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths story that sought to collapse many of DC’s various eras and parallel earths into a single, cohesive continuity; it is far too complicated not to give it its own series of blog posts).
