Proud Owner Alert: Birds of Prey #8 Comic

The Birds of Prey #8 is a really special issue, following Nightwing and Oracle on their very first date. In conjunction with the story, the pages and their colorful artwork are positively glowing. I’m now the proud owner of the physical copy and wanted to showcase it to the DCU Community. :relaxed:

Awesome advertisement for Jnco Jeans!

One of my favorite spreads in this comic

An advertisement for the first Blade movie - on VHS (also available on DVD :laughing:)

One of the most heartfelt comic moments ever imho. I was blown away by the trapeze moment.

JNCO Jeans: Because every teenage kid needs to carry around a 40oz bottle of King Cobra in their pocket.

The skater crowd at my high school sure thought so. Of course, they allegedly carried other things in those pockets too…

Me, I went for the reasonably sized wideleg JNCOs. I never stuck a beverage in 'em though.

I had one pair of the super big ones that I wore to Punk Shows every Friday nite just because they would carry two 40oz bottles in the pockets.

Other than that it was below the knees Dickies or Ben Davis. It never gets too cold for shorts in Southern California!

I always said they were the most adorable couple in DC. Also, it is really awesome that you were able to find that.

I couldn’t agree with you more, @Behemoth.Ravenlord! Thank you! I’m so happy that I managed to get this paper copy. After I read it, I knew how much it would mean to have it be a part of my comic collection.
