I don't add blogs to my links bar lightly (not because I'm mean or snooty, but because it brings down my valuation on Blogshares; sad but true). But I simply must add "Blockade Boy"!
First reason: anyone who even remembers Blockade Boy gets a modicum of respect from me. "Ah," I nod, concealing an inner smile, "the royal we recognize you as one of the Comicscenti; in the New Regime, you shall not merely survive, but occupy a Place of Privilege; carry on."
So, imagine my joy upon discovering that the blog is written by Blockade Boy himself, who apparently faked his death in Adventure Comics #345 (hah, take that, Nardo!).
THEN imagine how I nearly fainted when I saw that Blockade Boy does costume re-designs on the fashion ill-favored! An obscure dead Legion character comes back to life, moves to the 21st Century, and reinvents himself as a costumer who helps others reinvent themselves. It's like ... like a beautiful dream come true. It's so--*sniff*--inspiring!
Learn Who Blockade Boy Is and How He Came To Be!
I, sadly, can only criticize the costumes of others, which is a destructive power; I am, in essence, a Fashion Supervillain. Blockade Boy, however, harnesses godlike powers of Costume Redesign, making him a Fashion Superhero. He makes me feel so.... ashamed.
Therefore, BB is the Absorbascon's new fashion consultant, and I hope at some point to be able to convince him to put forward some designs for some deserving characters. Is there anyone you can think of who needs a new superwardrobe?
