Batman at the Disco

We all know that Batman hates rock & roll, but what music does he like? Apparently, disco.

Crowning Moment of Awesome - Calling All Robins

Much to my surprise, I see that we don't have much of this quintessentially awesome issue of Brave and the Bold on s_d, where Batman teams up with... well, ALL his Robins. And in true Brave and the Bold fashion, they happily break the laws of continuity if they think it'd be FUN! :)

The preview pages were posted last November, but since then, nothing.

Now it could be down to the fact it was the very devil to find in the shops, it took me months to find a copy in my neck of the woods, and by the time I did I think I must have assumed it had been posted already, but apparently not.

I considered this for a "One Perfect Moment" post, but couldn't pick one within my own rules of the thing (one scene, no more than two pages), so decide to make this a more general crowning moment of Awesome for the concept of Robin-inity.

Robins past, present and future, but all brave and bold! )

Perhaps we shouldn't mention the time Bat-Mite walked around in Batgirl's body for several days

Alas, this is the final issue of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.



Four random pages from the story (the "plot" is "Bat-Mite gets a crush on Batgirl") below the cut.

The best thing about Bat-Mite is that relieved feeling you get when he goes away. )

But hey, Superman Family Adventures! Whee!

Batman: The Brave and the Bold #4

Wonder Woman had another appearance this week, which may be more palatable for some of you.



The "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" comic book underwent a renumbering, so we have a different look for the Amazing Amazon.

The Bride and the Bold, 4 pages from the latest issue )

"The Three Flaming Dooms!"

Hi folks!

Hope your Thursday was good, and everyone is quite recovered.

I'm using "Weakness Week" as an excuse to run a few pages of this character...



Can you guess his secret weakness?

For those of you who haven't met the character before, the Silent Knight was actually Brian Kent, son of Sir Edwin Kent. Sir Edwin was co-ruler of a fiefdom with Sir Oswald. Oswald didn't want to share, and treacherously slew Sir Edwin. Brian realized what had happened, but could not speak out against Sir Oswald, as he was now sole ruler, and Brian was not yet of age. So Brian adopted an identity-concealing set of armor to fight for the common people against Sir Oswald's misrule. One problem--the full-face helmet wasn't going to be enough. Brian had a very distinctive voice, so he couldn't go the standard superhero route of lowering it a notch and speaking gruffly; he had to remain silent or have Sir Oswald prove that the outlaw Silent Knight was the same person as Brian Kent and legally have him put to death.

This is a fairly typical story, "The Three Flaming Dooms!" It was originally printed in The Brave and the Bold #15 in 1957, but this is the 1974 reprint in The Brave and the Bold #112. 3 1/3 pages of ten.

Apologies in advance for the crooked scans. )

I know, shocking, two "Legality" posts in a week, but as ever, my cause is just...

More than just, in fact, it's both Brave and Bold... As a neglected member of the Batclan debuts in the latest animated series.

After Robin, after Huntress, after Bat-Mite and even Ace the Bat-Hound comes...
The Dominoed Daredoll... )
Enjoy!

Oliver Queen's Bucket List

Have you ever contemplated what you would do if you were diagnosed with lethal radiation poisoning?

Here's a look at how Green Arrow answered that question, in "The World's Three Most Dangerous Arrows", reprinted in The Brave and the Bold #113, originally appearing in Adventure Comics in 1956. 2 2/3rds pages of eight.

Brave & Bold #34 - 31st Century Fanservice!

2 1/2 pages from Brave & Bold #34, which teams up the Legion of Super-Heroes circa the old Adventure Comics days with the original Doom Patrol, for part 1 of a 2-part story. I just wanna know how much icon_uk had to pay the creative team here to get such a fanservice-y opening to our tale...

It's a fashion thing. )
