Time now for the latest issue of Teen Titans. You'll recall that the team 'ported back to the 21st century to find Bunker and Beast Boy fighting for their lives on Tim's yacht, which is apparently the worst-guarded secret headquarters ever.

It's kind of a long story. )
...so, all that happened. *shrug* Reboot, anyone?

Hi ho, gang! Yes, i'm still alive. I got ill in February and was either in hospital or recovering and not allowed to drive til recently, and so missed the last couple issues of Teen Titans. But! Now I have both the ones I missed and the latest in hand! So I figure i'll do one post on the back issues and a separate post for the new. I have here six pages each from Teen Titans #28 and #29 - sounds like a lot, but there's at least one double-page splash from each ish.

You'll recall that when we left our merry band, the remaining Titans had joined Kid Flash and Solstice in the 31st century, where Bart was apprehended and put on trial. Being in the future enabled Bart to break through his Echo-created "witness protection" personality and become the evil revolutionary Bar Torr again, and submitting to the trial was part of his scheme - with all his world's power brokers gathered to watch him hang, his forces were able to strike at all of them at once, to the Titans' dismay.

We now join the battle already in progress )

Stay tuned, gentle readers! Same Titan time, same Titan channel!

and the there's Poison Ivy's level of Seasonal Affective Disorder

The art in this is so beautiful it makes me regret my scanner is such a poor qualty one... or it might make me wish I went in for digital comics more, but in any event, I recommend seeking out these issue for yourself, if only for the first four pages, which are amongst the loveliest I've seen in ages.

To everything there is a season... )

When we last left the story, our fearless hero was facing impossible odds: a city in turmoil, an apparently unstoppable supervillain behind it all, and his trusted mentor nowhere to be found. He's got one shot: a counter-stratagem that might turn everything around...

... or it just might crash and burn, leaving Tim to join his predecessor in the line of Good Soldiers behind glass in the Batcave.

In our last installment, Tim failed to stop the Joker for a second time, allowing the Joker to complete the next step of his plan. Now the Joker's put a serious cyber-bug into Gotham's mainframes, making the oncoming holiday season look more nightmarish than ever.

How bad can it be, you ask? Well...
See for yourself, behind the cut! )

Ah, the New Year! New beginnings, new opportunities... and for me, a chance to (finally) kick off a series of reviews centering around my favorite comics character and my favorite comics creator!

The story we'll be looking at today is one that pits Tim Drake, AKA Robin III, against a certain green-haired Clown Prince of Crime. Said story also happens to take place around the holiday season - complete with oodles of that good old Gotham snowfall - and has Batman be mysteriously absent so that Tim can face down the big bad Joker all by himself. I think you all know where this is going...

Yes, folks... it's time to dig into 1991's Robin II: The Joker's Wild!

Tim and the Joker.

Yeah. I had a bunch more "Villains Being Awesome" moments to post, but there are so, so few days of October left. Ergo, I decided to lump several of them into one post!

As a last-ditch effort to establish some kind of connecting theme beyond "Batman villains", I chose the three villains featured in what popular opinion has deemed the worst Batman film to date, Batman & Robin. If anyone deserves to have their awesomeness trumpeted and the reputations that that movie gave them destroyed, it's these three. And I say that as a guy who's usually apathetic (at best) to two of them.

Behind the cut: What Ahnold, Uma, and Swenson should have been! )
