Demon knights was an underated series and it sucks that its gone. Are there any similar series around? Or did they ever do anything else with the best version of shining knight?

Ystin got introduced in Seven Soldiers and I'm pretty sure that's her only other appearance

All Star Western was similar

Would have been better if Etrigan spoke exclusively in rhyme.

The worst part about reading Morrison's Seven Soldiers. Yes I read Kindt's Frankenstein and yes I liked it.

>>78295440
It was good but kind of went downhill when Vendetti took over.

This is pretty much the only time Vandal has even been shown in a semi-heroic light, or at the very least, in a protagonist role as opposed to the big bad that other heroes fight.

If you want more swords 'n sorcery shit with a wacky group of adventurers, I HIGHLY recommend John Rogers' Dungeons and Dragons series.

Within DC, the Willingham Shadowpact series is pretty fun and has some similar character dynamics and magical shenanigans.

That's like every Morrison run though

>Tons of women, disabled people, muslims and gender queer, only main character who was a normal white straight dude spent most of his time as a demon
Demon Knights is one of the most diverse series in the last few years, why didnt the Tumblrfucks do something useful for once and save it?

Al Jabr should have been Ra's.

He fucking should have been.

You and I both know the answer to this.
>>
>>78301038
It came too early and this is DC. When DC tries to be diverse, it's fake.
>>
>>78301038

Same reason why Vibe was killed after only 10 issues and Earth 2 only gets praised for having a black Superman and not the huge global coalition of characters that Robinson built originally.

These people don't fucking read comics, just news blurbs and cropped panels that get reblogged on tumblr.
>>
>>78301038
It's really infuriating that they only support the worst books instead of the genuinely good ones.
>>
>>78301038
Because it wasn't Marvel.

Because they didn't have a movie.

Because most tumblrinas don't read comics other than the panels than the ones that do post in tumblr.

Because there weren't enough cute white guys for them to slash.

Take your pick

Ystin was a very unique character, possibly trans or hermaphrodite (did they ever say?) But he viewed himself as a man.

He wasn't cis that's for sure and probably the only developed non cis character in superhero comics that doesn't play sidekick or supporting character to the hero.

But I think also it's because Ystin wasn't a transwoman, tumblr only cares about transwomen.
>>
>>78301232

I kind of appreciate that the comic never went into huge detail over it and how literally "male" she is supposed to be. She considers herself male, and can certainly hold her own against other men, so that's that.

Seven soldiers shining knight very much identified as a girl. Demon knights ystin is the gross tranny.
>>
>Demon knights was an overrated series and it's Ystin was the worst version of shining knight.
Fucking fight me you nerds.
>>
>>78301416
You're welcome to your opinion but I disagree with you.
>>
>>78301232
I always got the impression he was Ftm trans for sure. I had always figured the line about being both genders author not having a clear enough idea on trans stuff or the charcter not having modern ideas on gender identity. As they woudnt
>>
It genuinely surprised me how much I enjoyed this considering I very much disliked Cornell's Captain Britain.
>>
I dropped Demon Knights after the first writer change, how was the rest of the run?
