For no reason other than I found this issue in a longbox not long ago, I bring you one of my favourite "bits" of Bat business from.... oh bloody hell... over 30 years ago Now I feel old....

Batman 370


LOVE that cover with layouts by the legendary (and underappreciated IMHO) Ed Hannigan who did a LOT of very clever and striking cover layouts. Look at the larger image in the link to see if you can spot where he appended the title to include the co-star! :)

Couldn't resist posting this one page from this weeks "Batman and..." Guest Starring Ra's al Ghul. Batman tracks down Ra's who has stolen Damian's Corpse in order to use to Lazarus Pit to revive him. Batman stops him and is loading the body on the Batwing when Ra's following behind threatens vengeance on the Bat-Family and Gotham if he leaves with Damian, Batman turns and they duke it out...

Over in my neck of the woods, there's still a few hours of Father's Day left, so let's celebrate it with one of my favorite Bat-writers of all time: Chuck Dixon! And this obscure little character he created named... uh, what was it again? Oh yeah - Stephanie Brown.

Jokes aside, I'm one of *those* Steph fans. The kind that basically lost track of her as soon as Dixon left DC, I mean. To this day, I'm still not sure whether I like the character in and of herself, or whether I just really liked the way that Dixon could spin an engaging, at least half-decent story out of literally any concept (the guy once wrote a Robin comic that was 22 pages of not-Barney vs. not-Mr. Rogers, for crying out loud). I hope to get to the bottom of that mystery soon, by finally diving into Steph's Batgirl series, but for now, let's take a gander at Steph's debut arc.

A girl and her scumbag father, behind the cut! )

Lately I've seen people complain that the situation in Gotham City is so terrible that they've started asking "What good is Batman if it never gets any better?". Since has been shown to not be the case, I thought that I'd do a brief series of posts about the positive changes the various versions of Batman have made to their city over the years.

First up, Batman meets his inspiration!

Given how... unimpressed I've been by what I've seen of Nightwing #30 (Don't have the issue myself, but there are enough pieces of it poppping around that I've put it together), I thought that rather than complain (well, right now, I might complain later) let's do something a little more positive, so here is Fanart Thursday special!

A Batfamily special )

A little trivia bit: a while back DC had an event called "This issue: Batman dies" across the Bat-titles which basically amounted to villains fantasizing about killing the Dark Knight. The issue of Gotham Knights was told from the perspective of Victor Zsasz but the issue was pulled at the last minute because it was too gory. Recently the artist posted some of the pages on his Facebook here.
