As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.

And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

'Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!' a worldwide phenomenon )

Since it was on January 12th 1966 that the Batman TV series started, I had an idea to make a post, and I probably will too, before the day is out, but I've niow discovered that one of our most beloved fan-artists has beaten me to it.

So it with great delight I present The Black Cat's

Holy 50th Anniversary Batman! )

"I don't think you can write comics without trying to reflect what's going on in the real world. I mean, that's kind of our job. I believe we have two jobs we have to do simultaneously: We have to reflect what's going on in the real world and we have to entertain you.

So I wouldn't say it was, like, wanting to go after that. It was more like, we can't write without doing that.

And we wanted to show that this movement, this thing, this idea that Lee Bermejo had, which was brilliant, of all these people being inspired by these Robins, is kind of a double-edged sword. It's inspiring and wonderful, but it's also a bunch of kids on the street trying to do jobs they might not be prepared for. And we wanted to examine whether that was a good thing or bad thing. Not come down on one side of the other. It stays a little bit gray.

Light warning for violence.


Now here was a mini-event I was looking forward to. Tom King's first crossover event? That sounds like fun, especially with the previews and small brief bits of info I heard about. However, warning signals went off in my head the moment I saw the amount of people working on the first issue alone...

I bet you might have already guessed what mine was )

Like all characters that exist for any extended length of time, Catwoman has undergone a number of changes over the years. I thought that it would be interesting to look at what Selina Kyle was like back in the day, in order to see what's changed about her and what's stayed the same.

Let's Begin.

Oh, hai Denny! )

"In this series, nothing is what it seems. We keep saying this and we’re going to keep saying it: our goal is 100% to surprise you. We never want you to be relaxed and to be like, okay I know where this is going, I’m going to sit down and read another villain of the month–I don’t like those kinds of comics. I want the stakes to be high, I want you to be blown away by what you’re reading. So I can’t spoil what’s going to happen, but it’s not what you think is going to happen." - Tom King

"When Grant Morrison first wrote young Damian, he was being thrown into his father's lap by his mother Talia Al Ghul. We saw a little boy assassin on a journey that eventually led to him taking his first steps away from his old life and down the narrow path that Pete and I tackled as he was becoming the Alpha and Omega of Robins.

Now the question is, where does he go from here? In #1, Damian finds himself at a new precipice, and he has to make the choice to step out on his own and risk the unknown yet again. Only now he has his father's voice, and others, ringing in his ears.

Damian is on the next leg of his journey to find out what his future holds and whose legacy he'll ultimately inherit.

Well, it's 31st October, and in some cultures, that makes it the eve of All Hallow's in the Chritian calendar, perhaps better known as Hallowe'en.

Some celebrate it as a solemn festival of remembrance, others see it as a time celebrate all things spooky and scary.

So with that in mind, let's make today the day you post from your favourite scary comics or stories. The ones that made you want to sleep with the lights on afterwards... if indeed you could sleep at all.

Tomb of Dracula? Sandman? The Spectre? A Junjo Ito tale? Something we've never even heard of before!

I'm starting with something truly horrific )
