So I was going to do a Batgirl retrospective or something to as a framing device, but screw it, it's New Year's, I'm lazy, and espanolbot is probably going to get to that that sooner or later. Anyways, I made this about a month back, spent many precious hours I could've used studying for finals, and when all's said and done... I regret nothing.

As first posts of 2017 go, I could do worse.

One of the big names when it comes to Batman villains, the Riddler has worn a number of different variations over the years. From egotistical violent criminal to relic of a more innocent period of supervillainy to Batman's Smartest Foe, Eddie Nygma is curious as he's often subject to far more internal analysis than you'd expect for a man who wears clothes covered in punctuation.

Continuing our look at superheroes and villains of times past in comparison to their modern counterparts, we come to one of the more consistantly popular Bat Family characters from the Silver Age: Barbara Gordon!

I posted this a little over a year ago but found out today Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald on Gotham) cited it as his favorite Batman comic (along with 'The Killing Joke') and figured some may be curious to check it out again.



Warning for some violence/gore.

So, uh, there's this Youtube guy called hbomberguy...

I don't know how to start threads.

Anyway, this guy did a video on the Killing Joke movie and why it's bad and how Alan Moore inadvertently helped kill comics. I thought it'd be interesting to post for obvious reasons.



Though what he does say that I haven't heard anyone say before is how the adaptation ignores a hell of a lot of the stuff that made the Killing Joke feel alive and interesting, and how Liefeldian sparse, nonexistent backgrounds are really fucking shitty for a comic and not just bad art. Background detail can really add a lot to a work.

He talks about this subject in other videos, and it's something I've been noticing in media in general. I recently replayed Chrono Trigger and noticed how the pixel thin strings in Marle's crossbow thwip when she fires it.Or watching a Jackie Chan movie and seeing how there's a clear rythym to the kicks and punches that don't exist in a lot of less awesome American action movies.

TL;DR details are hella important.

I guess that's one explanation why Bats values being the Smart Guy so much. Also, what's the over/under for Bruce verbally acknowledging he loves his family? Three years? Five? Ten?

Plus, one of the best Superman moments in a Rebirth that's been full of them. Check it!

I look at his little face and see yours )

"Boys, you know how you weren't in trouble for wrecking Mister Wayne's Batcave? Well, that may no longer be as true as it was a few minutes ago."
Also, fun with Alfred and brick jokes. Check it!
