Hello! I got super intrigued by your Duela Dent cosplay I saw somewhere, I'd never heard of her and would like to read some of the comics she's in etc, but I'm also super new to comics and things so I've really got no idea where to start! What would you think? Sorry if this seems like a really vague question :/ thank you!
playstationgirl playstationgirl Said:

That’s perfectly okay, I actually did the same thing - I saw the costume on a cosplayer and went WHOA WHAT IS THAT and started reading from there.

The version of Duela Dent I cosplayed is from DC Comics Ame-comi Girls

The ame-comi universe is slightly different to what you’d normally know of Gotham, but keep an open mind as you read and learn as you go. I know you said you’re new to comics but as long as you have an idea of the main DC women (Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Powergirl, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Batgirl etc..) it won’t be too hard to jump into since these are brand new ‘reimagined’ versions of the characters. This is where you start, I found it as a book at my comic book shop :)

You can find different versions of Duela Dent throughout the Dc Universe but they’re all slightly different versions depending on where you see her, and she goes by a few different names and back stories - most recently she’s appeared as “Jokers Daughter” in the New 52. The Ame-comi version is majority of what I know of her so far.

A hint for getting into comics is start with the Trade Paper Backs. I find it SO much easier to start with a book labelled #1 rather than jump into the middle of whatever event is currently occurring, and then try and keep up each week. Do a quick Google on an artist or writer beforehand if you don’t recognize the name to save yourself buying a book from a writer you don’t like. And don’t be afraid to ask an assistant at a shop - If you’re not sure where to start, they can help point you in the right direction. That’s what they’re there for anyway :) Have fun!

Shout out to all those people who still laugh at my terrible jokes even when I punch up the screw line πŸ‘

Whatever your opinion about Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian and their work or character may be, it’s unlikely that you agree that death and rape threats, personal intimidation, hacking of public accounts, etc. are legitimate means of responding to personal grievances you have with them.

There has been literally no institutional repercussion whatsoever (beyond the above & similar articles) against the gamers who’ve made these threats, creating a culture in which it’s okay to continue to make such threats.

To be silent in the face of this is to choose secure profits over the safety of prominent women (or prominent anyone, frankly) in the games community.

Do you ski? or Snowboard?
playstationgirl playstationgirl Said:

I do both! I had my Ski boots fitted poorly last year and ended up in terrible pain just standing in them so I started snowboarding instead.

This year I had my boots fitted properly and am a fairly competent skier, and still trying to figure out how to snowboard (lord help me I can’t go backwards, so I can’t turn…) :)

Just so you know... Some sharks roll in the wash nice and close to the shore chasing the schools of fish there...

This is one of the most terrifying moment in the silent hills playable teaserΒ 

My partner insisted we play with the lights off and the sound up. We began bickering about something, entangled in each others limbs on the couch and not really paying attention to the game and then THIS was on the screen.

I have never screamed so hard at a video game in my life.

Majority of these (if not all of them) are young adult fiction.

I worry for my angst ridden 15 year old soul.
