Batman Day Posts! - Batman: The Neurotic Knight

For my first post (hopefully), here's a delightful scene from the Batman: Reborn era!

I'll post a decent Bruce one later, promise - I just miss Dick!Bats a lot.



The password is 'Kevlar Ballgown' )

Food for Thought: Jason Todd is in Arkham Knight! A story DLC, though, but I'll take it. Sad Rocksteady won't be overstaying their welcome - I'd have loved to see their versions of the rest of the Bat-Famiy.

Sometimes it's tough to be a bird boy... Batman 370

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! :)

MY PARENTS ARE DEEEAAAD!!! (But that's ok!)

[personal profile] espanolbot 's post about Martha Wayne's underrepresentation in Batman stories inspired me to post pages from Greg Rucka's and Klaus Jansen's 2003 miniseries Batman: Death and the Maidens.



Rucka's run on the regular Batman titles culminated with Batman realizing that he's still Bruce Wayne at his core, and that he should be nicer to his family for the x time.

When Rucka came back to write "Death and the Maidens" he simultaneously reinforced his previous points while attempting to plug one of Bruce's other persistent wells of angst and drama: the perpetual mourning over his parent's death.

And in doing so, he gave Martha one her most extensive roles in a Batman story that I can think of.

BATMAN #26: Bruce dislikes Jim

The first page of BATMAN #26 has Young Bruce Wayne watching a Zorro movie in a theater... by himself. He is confronted by uniform officer James Gordon. The rest of the issue in the present (which is also the past) is Doctor Death fighting Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox and Gordon rescuing them. Bruce wakes in the hospital with his foot handcuffed to the bed.

Important coat. )

A holiday classic: Tim Drake versus the Joker! (Part three)

In our last installment, Tim failed to stop the Joker for a second time, allowing the Joker to complete the next step of his plan. Now the Joker's put a serious cyber-bug into Gotham's mainframes, making the oncoming holiday season look more nightmarish than ever.

How bad can it be, you ask? Well...
See for yourself, behind the cut! )

A holiday classic: Tim Drake versus the Joker! (Part two)

When we last left our young hero and vile villain, the latter had just kidnapped a respected computer expert out from under the former's nose. What does he plan to do to this respected genius? Well...

More holiday hijinks behind the cut! )

Batman: The Deal



This is a fan story that was posted online at Moonhead Press (I.E. not affiliated with DC) by Gerardo Preciado and Daniel Bayliss. It's gotten a bit of attention from various news sources. Here is an interview with the creators (don't read until you finish). I'm posting the whole thing given its free nature.

Warning, it's pretty gory.
