Lately I've seen people complain that the situation in Gotham City is so terrible that they've started asking "What good is Batman if it never gets any better?". Since has been shown to not be the case, I thought that I'd do a brief series of posts about the positive changes the various versions of Batman have made to their city over the years.

First up, Batman meets his inspiration!

I sometimes like Warren EllisMark Millar, but sometimes his reach exceeds his grasp, IMHO. At the same time as he was doing some very interesting stuff else with StormwatchAztek, he was freelancing for Marvel and doing....other things.

Did you ever wonder what Archie Comics would be like if Ed Brubaker wrote them?  No, neither did I.

Four scans from Criminal: The Last of the Innocent #1, the latest installment of Brubaker's excellent crime series.

Greetings True Believers! This is my last post for OPM week and it's one of my favorites, for two reasons.

1. This issue of "Spider-Man's Tangled Web" features one of the best parts of any comic-verse. The villain bar. I love scenes of villains just hanging out, grousing about heroes, comparing notes and relaxing. Which is why I included a few scans of just that.

2. This story is an example of the fact that Norman Osborn doesn't need a costume, glider or control of an international martial agency to be one of the scariest motherfuckers on the planet.

Enjoy!

Over on The A.V. Club, they just did a run-down of the best comics of the decade. Along with the additional suggestions made in the comments thread, it's a pretty marvelous list (the A.V. Club's comics coverage skews slightly away from the established superhero comics, compared to this community). It's certainly given me a bunch of things I want to check out.

Hey, we can all agree on this one at least. Right? )

What are your favorite comics from the 21st century's first decade?

In the last chapter of our merry tale of What The Hell, we were treated to a boatload of genetic and esoterical confusion, courtesy of the Hawkfamily, a demon, a wizard, and Dove. In this chapter, we get more build up, a lot of supposed therapy... oh, and plotholes. Big ones. But after the first two chapters, you should have seen that last one coming. Twenty three pages from six issues. I tried this time to limit the ranting. Sort of.

This was brought up numerous times in the previous Amazing Spider-Man thread, so I decided to post it once and for all. In my opinion, it's one of the better Chameleon stories out there. Not surprisingly, Marvel has all but forgotten it.

On a related note, this was the first Spidey story written by Paul Jenkins. He would later become the writer for Peter Parker Spider-Man and Spectacular Spider-Man.

So, without you guys at s_d I never would have heard of Blue Beetle, or Booster Gold, or Mr Miracle, or Big Barda. I never would have been at my first ever comics' fair, looking through boxes. I wouldn't have looked at the section labelled Mr Miracle and I would have missed

HOLY SHIT, YOU GUYS! THE MOTHER LODE!




50p each! I was very restrained and only bought 8 issues.

See some of the awesome moments from issue 7 :) Many pictures )

Eventually, we're going to run out of Bat/Cat stuff. Fortunately, that time has yet to arrive. Here's a look at Brubaker's take on the famous costumed couple from his Catwoman run.

I missed you, I missed you, I missed you!

I come bearing 5 uber-sexy scans from my favorite comic of all time (and it's barely on it's second issue!)
It's not just me! )
