*taps microphone* Hellooooo? Any Harvey fans still here?
I love Aaron Eckhart's Harvey Dent from THE DARK KNIGHT as much as anyone else, but for me, my heart lies with the original character from the comics. I've been a fan of Two-Face since I was a wee sprat, and while I was overjoyed to see the character get an influx of appreciation, it saddened me that there still wasn't a site dedicated to everything related to Harvey Dent, especially
from the comics.
So I went and started my own.about_faces
about_facesHopefully that got your attention. ;)
It's my own still-in-progress fanblog dedicated to all things Two-Face!
Right now, it's been pretty expressly focused on in-depth analysis and scans of specific story lines, including "Eye of the Beholder," the definitive Harvey origin story (whose influence can directly be seen in THE DARK KNIGHT)
, the mysterious new vigilante known as "Janus" (whoever could it be?!)
, and the first two posts in a series exploring how Harvey is the Trial by Fire for the Robins: Part 1 is dedicated to Jason and Tim
, while my newest is the first of several to focus on Dick Grayson
Other things I plan to include:
--news on the latest neat Harvey-related comics and merchandise
--exploration on the themes of duality in literature and philosophy
--links to fanfic and fanart of note
--opinion pieces on other Batman rogues: what they represent, what makes them great, and how they could be better used in comics
--and much, much more.
So yeah, if you're a fan of Harv from any iteration--be it the comics, the animated series, THE DARK KNIGHT, or hell, even BATMAN FOREVER (I won't judge! Much!)--come on by and share your thoughts, opinions, diverging opinions, whatever! All you need is a love for the character, because let's face it, the poor crazy bastard needs all he can get.
