Nightwing Hoses Himself

I believe that Nightwing is the DC Universe's biggest slice of beef. He's all about the gratuitous shirtlessness! Smart boy, he knows how to make his fanbase happy. Here's a perfect example: in Azrael #13, Dick shows up to spar with a recently injured Azrael to see if he's recovered. In the middle of a conversation he takes of his shirt, faces the reader and starts hosing himself down. Nice! The only drawback is that this was during the ponytail years, but we'll take any Nightwing beef we can get.



And as a bonus, I bring to you the Dick Grayson Estrogen Brigade. Some guests at Donna Troy's wedding drooling over Dickie Boy. I wonder why they're not ogling Bruce's ass too. He's no slouch. (New Teen Titans V1 #50).

Do you know those female guests are real people? Members of the Titans APA who worship Dick Grayson, known as Wingnuts. I was friends with the blonde for many years and she does look like that, and it was she who told me George Perez, who had met many of the Wingnuts, drew them into the book. Just a bit of interesting trivia.

Wow, that's so cool! Fangirls immortalized in a comic book! George Perez rocks. Thanks for this interesting piece of information, Shelly.

So I was right, there really is a Dick Grayson Estrogen Brigade in real life!

You're welcome. :)

I guess the Wingnuts are still around. I was a waitlister on the Titans APA, but never got elevated to member status (limited membership plus a limited number of waitlisters), so I quit.

And it answers the question: Why aren't they ogling Bruce, too? Because they're Wingnuts! ;)

BTW, George Perez lived in Queens, NY when I was friends with the blonde and she was visiting from her home down south and asked if I'd like to meet him. Fangirl that I am, I jumped at the chance. George was very nice and agreed to do a program for me at the library where I worked. He ended up doing 2 programs for me, for teens looking to break into the comics industry. The kids loved meeting him, too.

I believe I did a post on it on my blog: http://shellyscomics.blogspot.com.

Nice to know a big shot artist like that is so nice, specially since I just read something about another less known artist who was a total ass to a fan (not gonna mention the name because it's really just hearsay).

Wow, that's some spectacularly gratuitous fanservice there Dick.

I've met a few comics creators at cons over the years and while some weren't all that friendly, most were and no one was rude. Given that fans buy the comics that provide them with jobs and that without us, they wouldn't have the jobs they do, you'd think they'd realize it hurts them when they're rude. Unless, of course, they're so good, no one cares. ;)
