Happy Father's Day

It's been a pretty bloody awful week all things considered, the tragedy in Orlando, the murder of a British MP, the general political situations on both sides of the Atlantic (and elsewhere in the world of course) and my mood is definitely not helped by the latest news about Anton Yelchin passing away.

As such I am using the BIG guns to celebrate Father's Day because I think I need to.

The Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade



"Alan Moore and I once had about a six-hour argument about the Joker, back when he did comic books -- because he believed that the Batman and Joker were almost parallels that were separated at birth. Alan had a much more, a sort of attitude of moral relativism about what was good and what was evil. I took a much more arched view, because I believe that the Joker is not so much insane as satanic. He's evil incarnate, and he's so malicious that it goes beyond anything we could understand. That's what's so terrifying about him, is that he simply wants to do as much harm and damage as he possibly can." - Frank Miller

WORLD'S FINEST #10: Almost

WORLD'S FINEST was a ten issue miniseries that covered Batman and Superman's friendship over ten years in the post-Crisis post-Zero Hour DC Universe. For most of that decade, they thought their refusal to work together resulted in an innocent man dying. They find out they were wrong.

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.

Where the personal taste of the creators throw everyone under the bus )
