LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #44 has quite a cover. Batman could grit his teeth like that, but only in the 1990s. This was Steven Grant and Sean McManus's first Batman story.

The end of BATMAN: ZERO YEAR had Batman comparing himself to a lightning rod for Gotham City. I had read that before, in PENGUIN TRIUMPHANT. It was a 1992 graphic novel about the Penguin out the same time BATMAN RETURNS was released.

It's been too long since I did a Fanart Thursday, to the point where I'm not sure if this is six days late or one day early...

Now when I say Bear Robin, I don't mean Dick Grayson as a hairy gay guy... though if that image gives you a warm happy feeling, far be it from me to diillusion you... you can come back later and join us if you'd like to savour it for a while...

No, I mean that a little more... literally.

Belated! Now, HERE's a decent Bruce post:



But seriously, for my probably last Bat-Day post, here's one of, if not the, saddest Batman scene from No Man's Land ('Tec #275): Read more... )

It's been months since I posted the question, but now I finally know where Alfred was the night the Waynes were killed.

Next post, a decent Bruce one, I swear. But right now, B&R #32 and Robin Rises: Omega:

Food for Thought: They just released some previews for Batman Earth One: Volume Two at SDCC. Apparently Croc is in it, although no news for the Riddler.

It's the latest issue, so only four pages.

It's Batman day, and I've come out from lurking to post this entry that features a special (and long missed) guest star teaming with Bruce on a case.

Mention "Batman" and "the nineties" in the same sentence, and most Batman fans will run away screaming unless you happen to be talking about Batman: The Animated Series (or one of its excellent tie-in comics). I've come to realize that 90s!Batman's reputation for being a coldhearted asshole isn't completely undeserved, but even still, I continue to find that the era contained some of the most underrated Batman tales of all time.

Case in point: Detective Comics #638, written by one of Batman's most under-appreciated scribes: Peter Milligan. Now, Milligan is typically far more famous in Marvel/Vertigo circles, but pound for pound, the handful of Batman stories he did are almost all treasures. Even "Dark Knight, Dark City", decried by many as being a needless grimdarking of the Riddler, has its charms as an old-school horror story, and the Riddler's atypically violent behavior is not only explained, but pretty explicitly temporary.

But we're not here to talk about that today. No, we're here to talk about a far more obscure story known simply as... "The Bomb".
