"I have no idea why Lobo took off... I came up with him as an indictment of the Punisher, Wolverine hero prototype, and somehow he caught on as the high violence poster boy. Go figure."

Since we don't have enough posts about Keith Giffen and Alan Grant's L.E.G.I.O.N, I decided to post scans from one of my favorite issues:

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. )

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! )

So... the Penguin. What a wimp, right? Some writers make him one of the smartest Batman villains to make up for it; others portray him utterly pathetic on all fronts and ride it for every laugh it's worth.

And some writers just say nuts to all of that. Like Alan Grant, circa 1989's Secret Origins Special. A cut above most of Grant's work, if I do say so myself - but that might just be a result of the wonderfully moody art, which I find to be only enhanced by the poor paper/ink quality.

One page from the Bumbershoot Bandit's past, behind the cut! )
