...and remember that the World's Finest isn't two people, it's three.

The first time Superman met Batman, Batman was in full on "early days lone avenger" mode, terrifying everyone who saw him, whether they needed to be scared or not.

The second time though..

That it is, according to current DC lroe, the birthday of one Richard John Grayson, who is perhaps better known by at least a few other names; Robin, Nightwing, Batman, Agent 37, Hunk Wonder, Acrobatic Ace, Boy Hostage

Since he first appeared in 1940, that means that, for a man of 76, he's looking pretty spry IMHO.

And in this blast from the past well 1970's Detective Comics 402, with art by Gil Kane and Vince Colletta (no less) we see young Mr Grayson, during his now erased college days, ponder anew what it means to be Robin as he considers;

I realise it's beena while since I posted a Fanart Thursday kind of a post, and also I never got around to posting the pieces I picked up at last months London Super Comic Convention

I was sort of selfsoulfriend-centric this time around, but there are some exceptions, and I'm very pleased with my crop! :)

JOKER: LAST LAUGH #1 had Dick Grayson take Barbara Gordon out so she wouldn't focus on the Joker (locked up in the Slab). Being a superhero story, Barbara will blame herself for the Joker escaping (with a gang of Jokerized super-criminals) since "She only looked away once."

Anyway, two pages of Dick and Babs have them discussing if what the Bat-family does counts as revenge.

As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.

And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

'Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!' a worldwide phenomenon )

Since it was on January 12th 1966 that the Batman TV series started, I had an idea to make a post, and I probably will too, before the day is out, but I've niow discovered that one of our most beloved fan-artists has beaten me to it.

So it with great delight I present The Black Cat's

Holy 50th Anniversary Batman! )

"I don't think you can write comics without trying to reflect what's going on in the real world. I mean, that's kind of our job. I believe we have two jobs we have to do simultaneously: We have to reflect what's going on in the real world and we have to entertain you.

So I wouldn't say it was, like, wanting to go after that. It was more like, we can't write without doing that.

And we wanted to show that this movement, this thing, this idea that Lee Bermejo had, which was brilliant, of all these people being inspired by these Robins, is kind of a double-edged sword. It's inspiring and wonderful, but it's also a bunch of kids on the street trying to do jobs they might not be prepared for. And we wanted to examine whether that was a good thing or bad thing. Not come down on one side of the other. It stays a little bit gray.

Light warning for violence.


Now here was a mini-event I was looking forward to. Tom King's first crossover event? That sounds like fun, especially with the previews and small brief bits of info I heard about. However, warning signals went off in my head the moment I saw the amount of people working on the first issue alone...
