Tragedy of Batman

Batman 49 came out this week, setting up Bruce Wayne's return as Batman for the big next issue. And what a path it was to that point in this issue, so much that I kind of felt the need to post that return in the last three-ish pages because it was a thing of art.

Batman 66 50th Anniversary!

Since it was on January 12th 1966 that the Batman TV series started, I had an idea to make a post, and I probably will too, before the day is out, but I've niow discovered that one of our most beloved fan-artists has beaten me to it.

So it with great delight I present The Black Cat's

Holy 50th Anniversary Batman! )

Creeptastic Moments in Superheroism: When Steph Became Robin

The 2000s weren't a great time for Batman. True, there were a lot of good stories and creators with a lot of good work at the time, some of which is still influencing work to this day (such as Gotham Central and the Brubaker/Stewart/Cooke Catwoman run), but as for the character himself? ...Well you know how a lot of the bullying behaviour from Silver Age Superman stories can apparently be traced back to one particularly unpleasant editor or something? Same goes for Batman's behaviour in a lot of these stories.

Happy 75th Birthday Dick Grayson!

So Robin is 75 years old this year, having debuted in Detective Comics #38, dated April 1940



That means it would have been on the shelves in Feb/March. According to current continuity, Dick's birthday is "the first day of Spring", which would be 20th March, but he's had a few other dates cited as his DOB over the years, so this seems close enough... ish.

So let's celebrate!

And how better than with a costume party?! )
