Batman: Tenses is not one of those comics that anyone - even the ones into all the really obscure Batman stories - likes to discuss. And for good reason.

This story is ugly in every sense of the word, with Cully Hamner's art being perhaps the only saving grace. One of my buddies over on tumblr flat-out called it "the worst Batman story I've ever read", and I'm tempted to agree. The entire thing is misanthropic, violent, and pessimistic in all the worst possible ways. Frank Miller wishes he could write a Batman like this - ironic, given that this is apparently supposed to be a follow-up to Year One. And tellingly, both Alfred and Jim Gordon are absent during the whole thing.

But don't take my word for it. Let's see what this story's take on Bruce Wayne does upon his return to Gotham!

Writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s net big Batman story is called "Endgame." Some covers and one final page were at MTV.com. This isn't the only time there's been Batman story called "Endgame." With the same major villain.

Certain creators not liking certain characters is nothing new. But sometimes it is hard to tell.
In GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH, it certainly seemed Geoff Johns doesn't like Batman. Specifically, the post-Zero Hour Batman. John Stewart said Batman never liked Hal Jordan because Hal wasn't afraid of him. (Because Batman's just that petty.) But let's move on to INFINITE CRISIS.

BATMAN CHRONICLES #6 were flashback stories. The first was about Ra's al Ghul in the 1500s. The last was about the founding of Gotham City. The middle story was about the "education" of Bruce Wayne.
After the cut, some thoughts about the "education" of Bruce Wayne.

LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #44 has quite a cover. Batman could grit his teeth like that, but only in the 1990s. This was Steven Grant and Sean McManus's first Batman story.

The end of BATMAN: ZERO YEAR had Batman comparing himself to a lightning rod for Gotham City. I had read that before, in PENGUIN TRIUMPHANT. It was a 1992 graphic novel about the Penguin out the same time BATMAN RETURNS was released.

It's been too long since I did a Fanart Thursday, to the point where I'm not sure if this is six days late or one day early...

Now when I say Bear Robin, I don't mean Dick Grayson as a hairy gay guy... though if that image gives you a warm happy feeling, far be it from me to diillusion you... you can come back later and join us if you'd like to savour it for a while...

No, I mean that a little more... literally.
