Sholly Fisch is proving, again, what a master he is of the genre of the completely ridiculous team-up, and that's a fine thing to be.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'm an old fashioned type. Whilst I'm all for nuanced and grey area heroes, when push comes to shove I like my heroes (and heroines) heroic and my villains (and villainesses) villainous, and my extra-dimensional imps mischevious. Simplistic? Maybe, but it can be terribly satisfying!

Case in point... )

In the past, I've posted from the original ending of Dick Grayson's Robin career, a long organic process of growth, told across both Batman titles, and primarily in the Teen Titans (Where Dick was a much more prominent character than in the Batverse at the time).

I've detailed telling the Titans, telling Bruce and Jason and putting on his Nightwing costume for the first time

And it struck me (and also following a post by [personal profile] lego_joker that uses one of the panels herein) that in the interests of fairness and comparison, I should post from a couple of other iterations of the story. Starting with the first revamp... such as it was.

Apparently, Batmite is the reason by Brave and the Bold is getting cancel, not the CN's odd habit of canceling some of their newer shows after 3 seasons, or the the occasional fan favorite that is canned because no toys can be made for it... or if they change the name of the show like it was Coke... (cough)BEN10(cough)...

Let take a look at our favorite 5th-Diemsional fanboy last attempt to hijack a Batman show in his "New York Adventure" in Detective Comics #482.

and God bless them for that! Another couple of episodes of this most magnificent of shows has aired and has a couple of comic-book geek moments making this worthy of a legality post (Anyone notice how most of my legality posts feature "Brave and the Bold", because I just did!)

First up, "Emperor Joker"

The pre-credit sequence has been long promised! A case from the files of the Bat-Computer



I won't spoil the explanation as to why he's wearing the costumes, but it's not the same as the one in the original comic (Which I don't think has been posted here, may have to do something about that)
When Batman was more colourful than his sidekick )

Emperor Joker! )

And another episode - The Last Patrol )

First post at the new place, thought I'd do my part.

This is from World's Funnest, and I think I actually got these scans once upon a time from Scans Daily 1.0, but it's well worth reposting!

Enjoy...

www.worldsfinestonline.com has images and videoclips from "Legend of the Dark Mite" up. This is due to be broadcast May 29th, and has Pee-Wee Herman as the voice of Bat-Mite...

See all the images here. The images there are HUGE, wallpaper sized without any problem at all, and do include some very nice "oil-painting" style splashes of notable Batvillains...



Oh this is going to be FUN!

The relentless stagflation of the 70's was not kind to comics. 50 cents for a 100 page super-spectacular became 60 cents, then became 60 cents for a 64 page giant, and finally 60 cents for a 48 page "giant." (back then, comic companies were actually reluctant to raise cover prices, you see). Then came the "Dollar Comic," at 80 pages for a dollar, with all-new content. But 80 pages was just too much paper to be affordable, so after only a few months of 80 page dollar comics, the page count was cut back to 64 pages.

But again, this was an era when comic publishers felt a responsibility to deliver value for your dollar, so DC eliminated all advertising from the 64 page dollar comics. 64 pages with no ads was nearly the same number of story pages as 80 pages with ads, so they could tell readers that nothing had changed except a lower printing bill for DC. And it gave the artists the opportunity to create pinups for the back cover.Read more... )
