Welcome fellow agents of Precinct1313 to our sensational seventh year of existence! That’s right, it’s been an ebullient eighty four months since the majestic mansion of mystery materialised unto this plane of existence. Our mission (which we chose to accept) was to provide you with some decidedly delectable DC Comics documentation, whilst behind the scenes we continued to map out the labyrinthian corridors, herculean hallways and colossal comic crypts that encompass this runic and recondite residence. And as we make our way merrily down through the interminable depths of this endless edifice on our way to commemorate at the infamous Halls of Quaffing to celebrate in style, why not join us in geeky remembrance of some of our favourite past posts emanating from the zenith of this arcane abode.
Our first port of call shall be the abstruse anomaly known as The Scrying Chamber, whence sits, upon a single stone table, a stygian black crystal ball, so join me fellow agents as we stare deeply into its sanguine depths and re-live our personal favourite posts from the past seven scintillating years…
Ace, Krypto and Streaky Too!
Our most recent and without a doubt most fun to write fictional foray was this post dedicated to the awesome and adorable animals that populate the DC Universe. These super-powered pets include such dynamic delights as flying felines, detective deducing dogs and, yep, even a Bat-Cow! And you can peruse (and pet) this perky post – Right Here.
Mister Miracle – Tom King/Mitch Gerads Review
Emotional, poignant, groundbreaking are just some of the superlatives we used to describe this phenomenal piece of comic-book fiction by King and Gerads, a fitting return to Jack Kirby’s Fourth World saga, and a superlative homecoming for our personal favourite Kirby created character, the titular Mister Miracle himself. In fact we loved this series so much we hailed it as – The Greatest Comic-Book Series Since Watchmen! – visit the post – Right Here – to find out why.
Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed Review
As you’re all probably bored of hearing right now, ’cause we never, ever shut up about it (and never shall!) we love Wondy here in Precinct1313, she is our favourite comic book creation of all time! And just recently the glorious gods of Olympus once more bestowed upon us mere mortals yet another thrilling tale of the Themysciran Titan with the fabulous Laurie Halse Anderson penned opus – Tempest Tossed – a sublime celebration of the wondrous one, and you can read our rapturous review of this titanic tome – Right Here.
The Bat Loves The Cat – Comics’ Greatest Love Story
The Bat most assuredly does love the cat, in fact they’ve been dancing around each other emotionally for the past eight decades! Yep, that’s eighty years of perfect passion procrastination! No character has had a more emotive impact on the Dark Knight’s melancholic life than sultry Selina Kyle aka -Catwoman! Why not re-live their tender tale of romance – Right Here.
Phew, thanks for sticking with us as we shared some of our personal favourite posts we have submitted to the WordPress world over the past seven years, and as we near the great Halls of Quaffing for mucho merriment, allow me to say a massive THANK YOU to all of the Precinct’s followers, readers and fellow bloggers… it is YOU that makes this joyous journey worthwhile. Hopefully the majestic mansion will be here for another seven years, so we can continue to share our love and passion for DC Comics and general geekdom!
Oh, And As Ever – Make Mine DC!
