Norm has suffered paralysis on his left side (and is left handed). As an artist...that is devastating! Norm now needs months of extended care in a Nursing Home facility with daily therapy that will hopefully enable him to once again, continue his skillful art and regain his mobility to be able to walk again.

This is sort of cheating the theme a bit - the Ventriloquist isn't really my favorite comic-book villain today, but he was the first one I ever developed an obsession with, so I thought it fitting to pay a small tribute to him today.

Here are some pages from old Arnold Wesker's debut story, courtesy of John Wagner and Alan Grant (the two-part storyline was in fact their very first Batman story, which is quite impressive; not many writers create an instantly memorable villain on their first try). Even now, rereading it gives me a surreal sense of vertigo. It's not easy to believe that such a silly-seeming villain had so much violence surrounding him.

Don't ever ask him for a gottle 'a geer. )

For my tenth anniversary post, I waffled back and forth on what I was going to post. The greatest Joker story ever told (not written by Chuck Dixon)? The two most depressing pages to ever be shown in a My Little Pony comic? The pilot chapter of the gory-yet-intriguing manga known as Detective Conan (AKA Case Closed), one of my favorites to this day?

Eventually, I decided that old Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot ought to get a little more of the limelight lately. But even here, there were choices aplenty. Would I post his debut story? His first team-up with the Joker? The time he disguised himself a nun? The magnificent three issues that chronicled his transformation from outright supervillain to shady racketeer?

I was going to go for that last one, but then I remembered that part of that story happened to be written by That Guy Whose Name Rhymes With Schmeter Schmavid. And without that part, the rest of the story doesn't have quite as much punch to it. So instead, we'll turn to a much shorter Penguin story that came out in 1987, smack-dab in the middle of the post-Miller era.

(This story was printed in Batman Annual #11, alongside Alan Moore's much more famous Clayface III story. It was written by Max Allan Collins, drawn by Norm Breyfogle, and ran for fifteen pages.)

Expecting tons of grim-n-grittiness behind the cut? Neither am I! )

Later this month, I hope to post some sweet Joker-y goodness for the current theme. However, for now, we'll have to make do with the issues I have on hand. Like this one: Batman #471.

Waylon Jones has never really been the top Bat-villain in threat level or popularity, but like just about any other character, there are always a few diamonds in the rough to be found. The one I bring to you today is one that (I believe) served as the inspiration for the BTAS episode "Sideshow"... and is, IMO, far superior to said episode.

A requiem for a killer, behind the cut! )

The best Elseworlds stories utilize the alternate reality format to gain fresh perspective on the characters and themes they represent. I've always loved the mantra which used to accompany the earliest books in this imprint:

"In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places--some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't, or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow."

I've always loved that last line. "As familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow." So why are there so many mediocre Elseworlds stories? Why do so many follow the formula of "plug in X character in Y time setting, tell basically the same origin"? Asking "What If?" doesn't really matter if that question isn't followed by, "So What?"

That is not the case with Alan Brennert's last (and only) major DC story, Batman: Holy Terror, the first alternate universe DC story to carry the Elseworlds brand. It's that rare Elseworlds (hell, that rare story) which actually has something to say about its lead character and the alternate reality he inhabits.

In this instance, it's Batman in a Puritanical theocracy.

You may remember that in addition to adding a gay cast member, Archie Comics had a publicity stunt where they finally allowed Archie to choose between Veronica and Betty, and followed the two separate paths for three issues each.

Evidently, it did well for them, since there's now a new newsstand magazine called "Life With Archie" which continues the stories of the Andrews, both versions. Technically, these are interquels, between the second and third issues of the original storylines. Four pages from #1, where conflict is introduced by means of a villain....



In Riverdale's darkest hour, a hero will rise... )

And now, over to Betty-World.

Surely things aren't as bad there...right? )

3 pages from The Spectre Vol. 4 #19 by John Ostrander and Norm Breyfogle. I wasn't really a fan of the Hal Jodan Spectre series but it did give us this awesome Darkseid moment.

So, in response to this thread and subsequent posts by [personal profile] benicio127 on Jason Todd and [personal profile] icon_uk on Dick Grayson, I thought I'd add a few scans of Tim Drake for comparison purposes along with a couple more of Jason. I hope they don't mind me butting in.

Ouch, these butt puns are getting worse and worse! :P )

Now co-starring Jubilee )

Now here are some Jason scans. Onyx is also in them.

Flashpoint, a 1999 Elseworlds, gave us a world where the only superhero was Barry Allen.. yet Vandal Savage's the villain, and J'onn J'onzz is kind of important to the plot.

(Well, okay, I guess it's not too hard to imagine a universe where the Last Son landed anywhere else, Joe Chill fired three bullets, Paradise Island sits undiscovered, Abin Sur never crashlanded, and so on....)

Key to the premise? Was...  )

so, the Human Defence Corps.

Currently the unit General Sam "Wade Eiling 1.1" Lane's in command of, they were created under the Luthor administration to be the one armed gov't group gunning after non-baseline threats that was actually public.

And they know what they're doing, surprisingly.  )
