I never did think Batman Inc was going to be awesome, or so richly involved in the world and lore of Batman.

Wow was I wrong. And I am happy to confess I am a convert (despite already having a love for Bruce). Trippy, cracky, icon making pics behind the cut.

Lets do the cha-cha.  )

Following the first of these stories, I thought I'd go straight to the "Son of the Joker" story, but a bit of research and ferreting through back issues led me to realise that there were more of these stories than I'd thought, and in the spirit of getting things in the right order, this is from Batman 135

Oh, the endless toil of banquets and honours... )

With "Interlude on Earth-Two," Alan Brennert was the first DC Comics writer to ask the questions, "If you go to a world where an alternate version of yourself got older, married, had a full life, and died... wouldn't that be kinda upsetting? Not just for you, but the people who knew and loved your alternate self?"

They're questions that no DC writer had considered by 1982, and Brennert answered them by throwing in an additional question: "What if that alternate Earth's Hugo Strange didn't escape unscathed from his final Golden Age adventure?"

This is one of the finest comics by Alan Brennert, who wrote only about nine DC stories over twenty years, including the wonderful Batman classic, To Kill A Legend, the great Deadman christmas story, and the post-Crisis origin of the Black Canary.

It is a testament to his abilities that I've had an insanely hard time editing these scans, so forgive this insufficient cut of a fine story. At least, until such time as DC reprints it someday (probably in a theoretical fourth or fifth volume of DC Showcase Presents the Brave and the Bold).





When even the cover has to ask that question, you know it's either gonna be a confusing mess, or something awesome... )

As I said before, Alan Brennert only wrote nine stories for DC Comics over about twenty years. His career there rivals only Alan Moore's for most prolific body of work over a very limited tenure, and if there were any justice, fans would be clamoring for DC to publish a Complete DC Comics Stories of Alan Brennert collection. Doing this past makes me want to write about them all in a Brennert Master Post. Perhaps I will, once I've tracked down the last three I have yet to read.

A while back I mentioned the allusions to the original Batwoman in Grant Morrison's Batman issues. Someone asked to see scans, and I answered that didn't have them at the time. Well, I did, but my hard drive contains many mysteries.

something about her I don't trust )

[personal profile] sandoz_iscariot requested scans of the original Batwoman. No, not dark, edgy lesbian Kate Kane. The woman who fought crime like this:



I only have one Batwoman story, from Batman #105, and unfortunately it's 10 pages long, so I can only give you 3 1/3 pages. But it should give you a taste of that Golden Age flavor.
The Challenge of Batwoman! )
