[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.

I took advantage of Image Comics 50% off Digital Comics sale and splurged on a few series I've been meaning to get into.

Since Greg Rucka is one of the S_D community's patron saints, I thought I should post some scans from the first two 2 issues of his and Michael Lark's new ongoing series, Lazarus, which is only 4 issues old so far.

Yeah. I had a bunch more "Villains Being Awesome" moments to post, but there are so, so few days of October left. Ergo, I decided to lump several of them into one post!

As a last-ditch effort to establish some kind of connecting theme beyond "Batman villains", I chose the three villains featured in what popular opinion has deemed the worst Batman film to date, Batman & Robin. If anyone deserves to have their awesomeness trumpeted and the reputations that that movie gave them destroyed, it's these three. And I say that as a guy who's usually apathetic (at best) to two of them.

Behind the cut: What Ahnold, Uma, and Swenson should have been! )

Based on chat in another thread, I got to wondering how many posters here are blessed enough to be either British or living in Blighty. Can we have a quick British roll call, if you'd be so kind? (And by using that phrase, I got myself lost in an hour of watching Bioshock videos. Oops).

(People from other countries should feel free to comment in this post too. It's got drinking, singing, open top sports scars, a man pissing in a field... it's got EVERYTHING!)

In the interests of posting something in a British spirit I had a little rummel through my collection. I've already posted Clubbing and somebody had beaten me to the punch for Gerry and the Fucking Skrull Pacemakers. So, how about some more Queen and Country engaging in that most British of activities; getting pissed and indulging in some quiet vandalism. )
