I hardly ever post "Context is for the weak" images, usually because in mine, context is already pretty much spectacularly evident, but these I had to share.

They're from an officially licensed DC colouring book from the 1960's, so I think they might qualify as a comic image, but I may add an image just for the heck of it!

I'm also tempted to turn these into a caption competition.

I must apologise for the quality of the scans, but they are from a colouring book that's 40 years old, and was in grey ink on a rather poor paper stock. I've tried rebalancing the colours, to limited success, but enjoy anyway.

"Our love is a different kind of love, a purer love".. (I leave it to your imagination who might be saying it to whom, as there are many variations that work just as well)

"That's the SECOND largest giant grasshopper I've ever seen"

Batcaptivity as work ethic - discuss

And this final image is an old commission from Mitch Ballard from sometime in the 1980's, perhaps showing the Joker having updated his Factory methods into a positive production line. It is also for sale over here and it's out of my price range, so go nuts! (And no, I'm not on commission!)

Robin doesn't seem so much scared in most of those as profoundly unhappy. He was hoping for better.

The last one, both Batman and Nightwing just seem sort of fed up. They've been through all this before, and they're just a bit peeved that they're not getting better.

Well, he's going a lot further with the 'insect' look than the Batman (who only has pointy ears and the pinked cape) or Robin (only the read breast) costumes go...and ends up looking more like a fly.

I'm not convinced the Joker Factory isn't turning out B and R droids in that picture. (Take 'em off the spinner! These two are almost done!)

Batman: Wow, this sidekick finder's great! Put him with the others, helpful Robot!

LOL I had to google EXO III, but that's exactly what I meant! That scene.

I bet Joker's at least watched the reruns.

It is a memorable scene in a memorable episode. (I also had to look the episode - What are Little Girls Made Of? - up at memory-alpha to get the planet name - I remembered the episode title, but not the planet.)

Heh. Me too! I couldn't remember the ep name at first, but as soon as I saw a short list and those screencaps... you know, like Lurch and those outfits and
Kirk holding the giant pink... rock.

Yeah really. It's an odd choice to have the robot's hand between Robin's legs there.

From: [personal profile] mystery
I don't know. I have this weird feeling it's tradition for when somebody gets carried that way by a robot. Like, the alternative is both legs, but that leaves more negative space in the drawing.

It's possible that I have thought too much about this.

See, I would think that if it's holding up just one leg, it should be holding the one closest to it, not the one furthest.

The Riddler looks kind of hot there. That's...not usually something I'd say about the Riddler either.

I think it's all the question marks. Like, obviously I'm not opposed to man wearing a skin-tight costume, but when it's got a pattern like that on it, it makes him look like he's running around in his jammies.
(This is partly why I prefer him as a reformed PI, not a crazy criminal! The suit looks better.)

But here he looks pretty good.

Ooo, didn't know he designed it. Frank Gorshin in the green suit was the reason I fell in love with the Riddler.

I was bored and wanted to play with my new pen tablet, so I inked/colored the second one.


Yes, it sucks. It's only the second thing I've done.

I decided bare legs are a trademark for anything that Batman is hurling a Batarang at as he's chasing it down a street in broad daylight.

It's not the best day for our hero...
