A lot of us preferred the old pre-The Killing Joke Joker of the 70s and most of the 80s. Unlike the version since, there was so much variety in the types of stories you could do with him. You could do dark. You could do comedy. You could do dark comedy. It was whatever the writers felt like doing, that day.

Here's a story that was published the same day as The Killing Joke. The Joker has been contracted to kill the JLI. As this is the BWAHAHA era of the Justice League, you can guess how well that's going to go.




A cold, hard look into the terror and violence of insanity. Or something.

Okay I don't want to ruin anyone's buzz, so feel free to skip this post if it's going to bring you down.

I really like the Zatanna/Bruce dynamic, and it doesn't get enough love, so here's a very bittersweet moment.

Bruce and Clark were trapped in a dream world by Doctor Destiny, and they've finally broken free to reality.

or have they? )

I admit that I've only read a fraction of Alan Moore's vast library of work (having just purchased the V for Vendetta TPB yesterday), and pretty much none of his seminal Swamp Thing run. I did, however, stumble on this little scene from Swamp Thing #53, and while it's not romance in the traditional sense... well, I don't think Moore would ever want to celebrate Valentine's Day in a less off-kilter way.

Remember, kids. St. Valentine's beheading is meant to be celebrated by couples of all kinds (except the abusive ones). Don't forget that, lest Moore's beard pull you down into the darkest depths of Hell.

God, I wish Moore had written more of Batman. )

David V. Reed is a writer I'm very... ambivalent about (for reasons I don't feel like getting into here). His work on Batman consists mostly of two runs: one during the 1950s and one during the 1970s. He's not exactly a big name among most Bat-fans (I think his biggest claims to fame are creating Deadshot and writing "The Joker's Utility Belt"), but he did get the honor of writing the milestone issue Batman #300.

While the issue itself is mostly a yawn, it is somewhat notable as a last-days-of-Batman-but-not-really story (in THE FUTURE) that came out about a decade before The Dark Knight Returns. More notably, its tone is the exact opposite of DKR's grim, gritty cynicism.

Just look at this.

A kinder, gentler future behind the cut. )

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #636 was an epilogue of IDENTITY CRISIS, and also set up some of what would become INFINITE CRISIS. It was (also) drawn by Rags Morales with the story by Greg Rucka.

None so blind as those not wearing a blindfold? )

In light of the Identity Crisis post, I personally feel the need for a bit of a metaphorical palate cleanser, some good old fashioned comics in my "Accentuate the Positive" series...

So here are two pages from Batman #1

Say it with me kids...
