None to fond of the art but the story was reasonably well written if a bit rough around the edges.

To paraphrase an internet meme:

Really? I liked the art. Particularly panel three, first page. That is some nice Bruce Wayne jerk face.

Motto. I saw that face and my fingers curled reflexively.

Really fun story I thought, with very well done art that fits it very well. Love the portrayal of Batman here too, and the nod to his early, typically over-looked days as a crime fighter when he carried (and used) pistols.

He never used pistols, plural. He used a pistol, and rarely.

Like, once.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; oh sure, he carried it around often, but before his first year of publication, it wasn't even a standard part of his costume. I think the short gloves lasted longer . . .

I like Bruce's victorious smile on the second page. it's actually kinda cute.

I really will have to get this once it's out in trade. It's looking pretty spiffy. :D

The art looks like it was done in Poser. I can't tell for sure, because Batman and Doc Savage aren't naked lesbians.

Note the reference to Batman carrying fourty fives, this is the OLD old school Batman that used guns. And if I recall... he DID kill people.

Date: 2009-11-13 09:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jcbaggee.insanejournal.com
He did, but the only one I can remember right off hand was some kinda vampire guy, I do believe.

The gun usage and his debate over whether or not to carry one was written into continuity in BATMAN: YEAR TWO, but most writers gloss it over, which is kinda sad. I wonder if he's even explained to Dick, Tim, Babs, etc. that he knows first hand carrying a gun doesn't make things any easier.

I enjoyed this but there were things I both loved and hated all in the same issue. I loved when Bruce has Doc call him nothing, at that moment the ruse worked perfectly, and it will take a lot to make Doc truly think otherwise. I hated the guns... I'm sorry but damnit they weren't even a large part of his Golden age appearance. I hope they are dumped soon.

They really weren't used that much here. He used them once as means of thorwing off other guys shooting at him's aim.

I love the exchange between Doc and Bruce on the first page.

Their later meetings are both pretty awesome, too. But the first is great.

(Although I do wish DC would let their acquired characters sell themselves, Spirit and Doc Savage shouldn't need to be crossed over with Batman to sell, dammit.)

From: [identity profile] statham1986.insanejournal.com
Therein lies the issue, though! DC tried to sell the Spirit as his own, individual property following the Batman crossover issue, and it folded after about thirty issues. This is, IMO, the major issue with a lot of new books from the Big Two, these days, that if they don't have a recognisable brand name on there then some particular properties just don't have much of a chance.

So really, it's nothing to do with DC not wanting their characters to sell, but more that some fans just aren't interested. Having an unusual version of Batman in there, though, then manages to hold some kind of appeal.

I have to say Bruce Wayne is mistaken if he thinks he's proven Doc Savage leads with his left; Doc was holding a drink in his right hand, he could strike just as well either left or right.

It's funny to see Doc with white hair (and eyebrows), but I put that up to the Bama look on the paperback reprints. If nothing else, it makes him stand out compared to everyone else.

And I'd bet Doc has figured out the Batman double identity already. He mentions that he didn't smell alcohol on Wayne's breath, which is a hint that something fishy was up. I'm biased a bit, but Doc was certainly at least as observant and analytical as Batman at any point.

I thought that Savage figured out Bruce's secret was pretty apparent.

Add me to the list of "love this art".

So in this universe, Bruce is average height, more on the spindly side, and uses guns. The name is Wayne, Bruce Wayne. Shaken, not stirred. Complete with Red Grant choking him out. XD

Are scans of this available anywhere else on the 'net? 'Cause I've REALLY been looking forward to it, but now my computer is playing stretch-and-squash with me, and none of these scans are readable.
