Here we are! Day 01 of our 31 Days of Scans to celebrate the winter season (and for that matter the end of the year)!

What better way to start this off than with one of the most idiosyncratic ladies of the DC Universe?

Oh yes! We are talking about *this* lady! )

Scowly McBatface is from an actual quote from the issue, by the way.

Food for Thought: This might be an odd time to ask this, but where was Alfred Pennyworth during the night of the Wayne murders? Not accusatory, just curious.

[personal profile] espanolbot 's post about Martha Wayne's underrepresentation in Batman stories inspired me to post pages from Greg Rucka's and Klaus Jansen's 2003 miniseries Batman: Death and the Maidens.



Rucka's run on the regular Batman titles culminated with Batman realizing that he's still Bruce Wayne at his core, and that he should be nicer to his family for the x time.

When Rucka came back to write "Death and the Maidens" he simultaneously reinforced his previous points while attempting to plug one of Bruce's other persistent wells of angst and drama: the perpetual mourning over his parent's death.

And in doing so, he gave Martha one her most extensive roles in a Batman story that I can think of.

Previously in Streets of Gotham (sorry for the gap, I moved house and only just got my scanner set up)...

Martha Kane's dad was bankrupted by a gangster, Judson Pierce, who now wants to shut down the clinic that Martha and her friend Leslie Thompkins work, so that he and make a mint by knocking it down as part of his plot to gentrify that area of Gotham.

And now the (trunkated) continuation... )

After the nonstop epic of the previous comic strips, we get a fresh start with the introduction of Dick Grayson in this continuity.

I have pretty much no commentary nor insights to offer here, as it's the one story in which I have the least interest, but I'm posting it here both for the sake of completeness and for the Dick fans. It's a standalone story with no references to the previous arcs, as will be the next part. After that, the grand finale with the Mad Hatter in Arkham.

These days I don't often make a comics score at thrift stores - if I do find any they're marked according to Overstreet - but I did come up with a 12-page "special collector's edition" issue of Batman done in partnership with Kemco and inserted with the "Batman: Dark Tomorrow" game. It has lots of villains - Poison Ivy, Ventriloquist and Scarface, Killer Croc - visits with both Gordons, and guess what? Batman's 1878597879876724th Crime Alley Flashback. Two pages of 12.

Shortpacked! style!

Two images from the Shortpacked! webcomic under the cut. One giving Batman exactly what he wants, and the other pondering ever-shifting timelines and what it means for the night his PARENTS BECAME DEAD.

Santa, you're kind of a jerk. )

A recent post sparked some comments on the role of good and bad parents in the bat mythos, and how Thomas and Martha Wayne are almost always shown as damn near perfect. I thought I'd post a few scans from Batman 430 (an issue about a rooftop sniper about to go on a killing-spree) which contains a flashback to Bruce's childhood and casts the Waynes in a different light.

seven pages from Batman 430 )

You know we need to get more stuff from the old lj mentioned here.

This is from Superman/Batman 50 where we discover that improbably Jor-El and Thomas Wayne met.

It's a 38 page book I've got twelve and 2/3's below the cut. Basically Thomas's entire Kryptonian adventure.

So I was drafting up my second post when the comm got suspended. Fortunately it was already under the new "one-third of the comic" limit. [Mods: How's the balance between the commentary/the scans? I'm still vague on where the balance is supposed to fall.]

No 'My parents are DEAD' here, nope.

"The SAGA of Superman vs. Batman!"

Published November, 1963, complete with those awesome old-timey ads and one-pagers.

page2 ) page3 ) page4 ) page5 ) page9 ) page16 ) page17 ) page18 ) Cape and Cowl Comments )

The issue finishes off with more ads, more shorts, and "The Boy Who Changed The Future!", wherein one of those omniscient 1960's computers that talks to you in punchcard binary predicts the imminent destruction of life on earth (6am, June 1, 1952--mark your calendars). But since the kid used the computer without permission, he has to keep THE END OF THE WORLD a secret lest he get into trouble, so he sets to save it himself. It takes about two pages, naturally.
