From Gotham Sirens, a series that I didn't really give that much of a chance back in the day, but actually turns out to be pretty fun, now that I'm making my way through it via the Comixology website.

Ah, Jervis Tetch. Generally regarded as little more than a third-stringer in the Batman mythos, with a nauseating appearance, a creepy personality, and an utterly stupid gimmick. Batman: The Animated Series is rightfully remembered for turning him into something more: a pitiful and sympathetic creature who was nevertheless just as creepy (perhaps even moreso) than his comics counterpart.

But once in a while, some story from the mainstream comics will rise to the challenge. Case in point: Detective Comics #841, in which the mastermind behind the BTAS version of Jervis, Paul Dini, sees if he can make lightning strike again.

The result? Well... it's not quite as memorable as the BTAS Hatter episodes (though that might be because the former sadly lacks Kevin Conroy and Roddy McDowall). Nevertheless, I regard it as one of the high points of Dini's hit-and-miss run on Detective, and the art from Dustin Nguyen doesn't hurt, either.

Warning: Spoilers for the issue's big twist ending, for those who haven't read it yet.

Remember the Trenchcoat Brigade? John Constantines rather sarcastic name for the assorted mages from "The Books of Magic"?

Well, there's a new team in town.... meet the Fishnet Brigade

And no, I don't mean this, because that's a rather specialised and personal form of "Awwww!"

So instead I offer this, which "Yes", IS another BTAS story, and from the same issue as the Mr Freeze story.... but I make NO apologies for that. (It's also a three page story, which leaves me ONE page to tell the story, so bear with me)

It's also appropriate (for me) that it has as it's title an old Scottish folk song associated with this night of all nights.

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.

Batman Adventures Annual #1 features five short stories by Paul Dini, about various Batman villains trying to go straight and how and why they fail (mostly)

One of the beauties of Batman: The Animated Series, was that it could handle the light and it could handle the dark.

Now the series, in the early years, was limited by what was permitted to be shown in cartoons at the time (Which is why, for example, the Joker never killed anyone in the early episodes). The comics, however were not. They didn't go to the "grim" often, which made the times it did all the more powerful.

I juts got a new piece of original art, and since it's my second piece from the same issue, I thought I'd share it, and the fun story it comes from.




It wasn't until I thought about it that I realised that, aside from one mass purchase of pages, I've only got two instances of owning two pages from the same story, and in both cases, it's Paul Dini writing stories which feature Robin as a hostage (one way or the other). Coincidence? Actually, quite probably, but that's neither here nor there...

Approximately 7 pages from 22 under the cut
