I somehow managed to not pay attention to the fact that DC Comics have declared July 23 "Batman Day", to celebrate 75 years of his publication.... I feel slightly embarassed about that, as I should have thought to propose an event in advance.

On the other hand, nothing to stop me declaring one now! :)

Batman and Sons has a few words to say on the matter )
So, to celebrate the admittedly impressive milestone,  if you have a favourite Batman moment, image or story, let's see it (Or you can request one if there's one you've always wanted to see!)

Happy Batday!

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! :)

As may, or may not, be known, the planned issue of Nightwing #30 by Kyle Higgins and with guest art by Meghan Hetrick was set aside to make way for the King and Seeley Nightwing #30 that came out last week, and despite having Bruce and Dick half naked for much of the time... did not exactly set the fanbase aglow with positivity.

Meghan has now posted all the approved, though unlettered, art pages, and has put them up for sale, so we can see what the original issue would have looked like

And it would have looked bloody spectacular! )

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 )

For my tenth anniversary post, I waffled back and forth on what I was going to post. The greatest Joker story ever told (not written by Chuck Dixon)? The two most depressing pages to ever be shown in a My Little Pony comic? The pilot chapter of the gory-yet-intriguing manga known as Detective Conan (AKA Case Closed), one of my favorites to this day?

Eventually, I decided that old Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot ought to get a little more of the limelight lately. But even here, there were choices aplenty. Would I post his debut story? His first team-up with the Joker? The time he disguised himself a nun? The magnificent three issues that chronicled his transformation from outright supervillain to shady racketeer?

I was going to go for that last one, but then I remembered that part of that story happened to be written by That Guy Whose Name Rhymes With Schmeter Schmavid. And without that part, the rest of the story doesn't have quite as much punch to it. So instead, we'll turn to a much shorter Penguin story that came out in 1987, smack-dab in the middle of the post-Miller era.

(This story was printed in Batman Annual #11, alongside Alan Moore's much more famous Clayface III story. It was written by Max Allan Collins, drawn by Norm Breyfogle, and ran for fifteen pages.)

Expecting tons of grim-n-grittiness behind the cut? Neither am I! )
