icon battle  

So who wants to do a Batfam comics icon battle?


participants:
[livejournal.com profile] sucksucksmile
[livejournal.com profile] geckoholic
[livejournal.com profile] sietepecados


how should we do this?
i'm thinking an icon per character, and we choose our own caps?
we should break down who we want to include.
and we can always supply a selection of random caps if people unfamiliar with all the characters want to join.

i know i'll probably need some caps for damian and jason, i think the only thing i've read them in is random batman comics and death of a family.

THOUGHTS, ETC.
COMMENT.

characters:
bruce wayne
dick grayson
jason todd
tim drake
damian wayne
stephanie brown
barbara gordon
cassandra cain
kate kane
???

extras??
selina kyle
midnighter
harley
alfred

Hmm. OTOH I like to pick my own caps so I'm all for that option, but on the other, there are characters I probs wouldn't have much material lying around for too, like Tim or Steph.

And yes. Who do we consider batfam? We should indeed pin that down.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 08:40 pm (UTC)
so there's the obvious.
bruce
dick
babs

i'd include
damian, tim, and jason.
i would include kate kane bc she's my love.
steph should probably be included. i could dig through her appearances in birds of prey i guess......... or google lol.
i was born difficult for myself: DC RedHood[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:08 pm (UTC)
Yep. Bruce, Dick, Babs, Damian, Tim, Steph, Jason, and Cass is what I consider actual batfam. I have nothing against including Kate. What about Harper Row?

Edit because I totally forgot to put Jason in there, omg don't tell anyone. XD

fuck i forgot about cassandra. agreed.

harper is literally just getting introduced in the shit i'm reading.
i'd be down with it. so far i just know her as harper but i know she becomes a robin right?
i was born difficult for myself: DC DickBats[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:20 pm (UTC)
Alfred? Do we want to include Alfred?

Well she kinda becomes... an aborted Robin? Telling you exactly would spoil you for Batman & Robin Eternal. I'm okay with leaving her out, though, she's a New 52 creation and while I like her, a lot of people don't consider her ~actual batfam.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:26 pm (UTC)
i really don't want to icon alfred lmao. only if i have to.

i dont know that i'm going to read batman and robin eternal. i'm not even reading batman and robin as is. just the ones that tied into death of the family.

she seemed alright in the issues i've seen her in so far.
i was born difficult for myself: Arrow Sara[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:33 pm (UTC)
Yeah I feel you there. He totally IS batfam but... most I icons his face? So let's just... not. Unless someone else feels strongly about him.

I love B&RE because it gets all the batkids together, and also, you know, Midnighter meeting the fam and also Dick feelings aplenty. XD But yeah let me know if you want me to spoil you to explain how she ties into it.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:36 pm (UTC)
so like really i should just suck it up and read it?
i was born difficult for myself: DC Grayson1[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:38 pm (UTC)
Yep. You should. :P
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:41 pm (UTC)
sigh. i may be acquiring it right now.

[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:45 pm (UTC)

Yessssss thank you so much! BRB grabbing.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 10:06 pm (UTC)
v2 #1 - 40 is still syncing. but it should be done by the time you finish detective + v1 #000.

Alright. Got 'em. :D
i was born difficult for myself: POI1[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:46 pm (UTC)
Batman Eternal has some nice batkids stuff too (NEAR-CANON BABS/JASON) but as a run it's.... eh. It has some canon elements that tie into other runs and storylines, but in all honesty, I mostly skip-read it.

And lol whoops, I have... not read a lot of that, tbh. A few of the events, yeah, but, mostly the batfam side of it and not much more. XD

i was born difficult for myself: Arrow Speedy[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, and also, I keep a list of what I've actually read here though that doesn't include aforementioned skip-reads.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:12 pm (UTC)
WHERE SHOULD WE PROMOTE THIS TO SEE IF ANY OTHER PEOPLE WANT TO PARTICIPATE.

besides my pal lissa who i tagged on twitter.
i was born difficult for myself: DC B&R[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:22 pm (UTC)
I thiiiiiiink there's an actual DC icons comm? Maybe? Did I dream that. Wait a second, I'll go check. Also, you know, icon talk and stuff? Does either of us know the mods of the comics icontest, so we can ask there for a pimp?
i was born difficult for myself: Marvel Jess2[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:24 pm (UTC)
Nope no DC icons comm, but, [livejournal.com profile] comicbook_icons. Ohh and the newsletter, we can ask them to pick it up, [livejournal.com profile] comicstore_news.
[identity profile] sietepecados.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:34 pm (UTC)
There is a DC icons comm - [livejournal.com profile] dccomics_icons. I'm a member, if you want I can post the promo, also I'll post it @ [livejournal.com profile] comics_ic :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:40 pm (UTC)
excellent plan.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 08:40 pm (UTC)
DO WE INCLUDE CATWOMAN BY ASSOCIATION. OR ONLY THE BATS AND BIRDS.
i was born difficult for myself: DC Dick & Dami[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:04 pm (UTC)
MAYBE? HMM. I'd say only bats and birds but I'm currently breaking my brain to get Midnighter in here since I NEED more icons of my boy (not like I can't make my own literally whenever I want but that's not the same) and like he was in Grayson and Batman & Robin Eternal so it totally COULD COUNT so I am conflicted. XD

Hey new thought what if everyone gets to pick an associated non-bird to throw into the ring? :D?

Edited 2016-11-02 09:05 pm (UTC)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:10 pm (UTC)
i'll allow it. lmao.

i haven't read any of midnighter outside of grayson.
so if you want to supply other caps, thats down with me.

at least with steph and tim, there are multiple incarnations i can choose between. (or at least steph. i think tim and jason are the people i know the absolute least about.)
i was born difficult for myself: DC Midnighter[personal profile] geckoholic on November 2nd, 2016 09:17 pm (UTC)
Ohh I have read everything he's been in since the reboot, so yes, I got that covered. XD And Jason, ah. I have read a lot of him? But mostly don't, uhm, have the issues at hand for iconning? Though I could probs grab some stuff. But yeah, Tim I mostly just read when he happens to be there in a thing I'm currently reading, so, errrr.
[identity profile] sietepecados.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:23 pm (UTC)
YES! PLEASE! Hello I'm here, sign me up!
Just let me know who and when's the deadline :)

I'm all for Batsy and Birds, also I'm all for Batgirl and Batwoman :)

[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:27 pm (UTC)
yes excellent. and geckoholic just mentioned comics_ic, so would you like to promote there?

so far, i think we're at bruce, dick, babs, damian, jason, tim, cassandra, kate, and maybe more. lol.

anyone you feel strongly to include?
we're also thinking about including people who have random appearances. like midnighter and catwoman.
[identity profile] sietepecados.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:36 pm (UTC)
My sweet deadly bby Catwoman? Would be great. We could make all the Bat characters and make an extra whoever we choose, or sth like that :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 2nd, 2016 09:40 pm (UTC)
thats what we were thinking.
so if you choose catwoman, and geckoholic chooses midnighter, i could choose harley.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 3rd, 2016 05:22 pm (UTC)
harper row? yay or nay.
[identity profile] sietepecados.livejournal.com on November 3rd, 2016 05:37 pm (UTC)
Honestly I'm indifferent to her. We could, but I won't miss her if we don't include her :)
Can we make icons of characters even when they are in a different comics. I mean there is a lot of Kate Kane in DC Bombshells, so can I use that? :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on November 3rd, 2016 11:10 pm (UTC)
i would say yes. a lot of the characters are in a bunch of different comics, so there should be lots to choose from.
(Anonymous) on November 4th, 2016 11:12 pm (UTC)
I found this through one of the icon comms. If you're still trying to find more participants you could try fandomcalendar (http://fandomcalendar.dreamwidth.org/) on DW.

OKAY. ITS BEEN LIKE A MONTH.
LETS REVISIT THIS!
[livejournal.com profile] geckoholic [livejournal.com profile] sietepecados

I was so incredibly busy this past month.
i think we should do ALL the batfam.
as much as we can manage.

and if someone needs caps i'm sure between the three of us and maybe some other people, we can accumulate a little selection of caps for whoever needs them.
like i would need caps for tim and jason and cassandra.
but i could supply people with kate kane and maybe even steph.
i was born difficult for myself: DC BatBoys[personal profile] geckoholic on December 3rd, 2016 01:16 pm (UTC)
As many icons as we can manage sounds good. Soooooo. I can definitely scrape together some caps or Dick and Midnighter. Jason too, though from a more limited range of books. I will definitely need caps of Tim and Cassandra and Babs and Steph. Maybe Damian. (Oh fuck I have a very limited selection of digital comics here, don't I. I have more in print. What is this sorcery.)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on December 3rd, 2016 11:33 pm (UTC)
I definitely have access to Babs. Oodles of Babs.
And Steph showed up a few times in Birds of Prey. And Tim and Damian showed up in Death of the Family and other eventy things.

Cassandra I have literally nothing.
i was born difficult for myself: DC B&R[personal profile] geckoholic on February 5th, 2017 01:55 pm (UTC)
Cassandra's in B&R Eternal, so I could get her from there? Not sure I have much else of her.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on February 5th, 2017 11:47 pm (UTC)
I'm finally on the convergence event. So I have officially seen Cassandra in the Batgirl two parter. For the first time. I figure I can just google her if need be.

Although B&R eternal is shortly after convergence so I should be there soon.
