"Batwoman is the professional who is trying to find out what is the greater path for herself. What is the endgame for being Batwoman? What does being Batwoman mean in the larger sense?" - James Tynion IV

"You see this with a lot of Batman's villains -- he wants them to recover, he wants them to find the positive path, because the worst thing in the world happened to Batman when he was eight years old. That's what sets him on the path to become Batman. He knows that a dark moment can send you spiraling in different directions, but he has to believe that you can pull yourself towards the light. Having a character on this team that as fun to write as Clayface, and as fun to play with because of his abilities, is great. I also love that he used to beat up Batman all of the time. There are some good lines coming up in the next few issues. Honestly, putting Clayface on the team is what glued the book together. It's that one extra thing that shows that while Batman is not the friendliest guy in the world, he is an optimist who wants the best things for the people around him -- even his villains. When he sees the chance for redemption, he pushes for it." - James Tynion IV

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.

"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

"She is Batman's equal -- she is not a secondary figure. They're cousins, so they are very similar, down to their hearts. I wanted that moment of equalization. ........... That was a turning point in writing that first issue and understanding their relationship together. It really presented itself on the page, and once I wrote it, I knew this was the way to handle it moving forward." - James Tynion IV

Just a fun scene from the new issue with an amusing surprise.

It's just occurred to me that I have not yet bored you all to tears with what my favorite take on Poison Ivy is. This shall not stand.

Like most of Batman's rogues, Ivy's portrayals in most of fandom - if not always the comics themselves - are usually based on the BTAS take. Green-loving, misandrist, and the no-nonsense straight-man (... wow that sounds wrong) to Harley Quinn's antics. I suppose there's nothing wrong with this on paper, but the executions have always left me cold (even Harley and Ivy - the original episode, not the zillion spinoffs Dini's written - only worked for me as an analysis of the Harley-Joker relationship, with Ivy as an outside variable).

Instead, I've always been a sucker for the Gaiman/Moore interpretation, the Ivy that rose from the seeds Saga of the Swamp Thing had planted back in the '80s. You can see Gaiman's contribution to Ivy's right here, but today, we concern ourselves with what Moore brought to the table.

What's that, you say? Alan Moore never wrote a Poison Ivy story in his life? No, no he hasn't. John Francis Moore, on the other hand...
