One of the things that was so great about the first Batman and Ninja Turtles crossover was how well it was paced. It was never slow or boring, but it did take…
12 Strong knows it has an interesting story to tell with a unique perspective, and it tells it well with a collection of talented actors and some legitimately gripping action.
A few years ago I discovered 1950s Batman. To my knowledge Batman classics annuals vol 1 and 2 and batman in the 50s is about the only reprints they’ve ever gotten. They’re typically skipped over or disregarded. Like in the 75th anniversary book there’s just one story I think.
To me these stories are pretty amazing. They’re probably the most creative out of all of Batmans illustrious history. The hayes code at the time really limited what they could do. Gone were the joker, penguin and many others. The stories we all know and have seen a million times.
The comics although a different Batman are just pure fun. I dare anyone to read them and not smile. They’re akin to axe cop. I’m really surprised by how every time I go they can’t surprise me again. I’ve seen all the wackiness they have to offer and yet he says something so bizarre I burst into tears.
A few examples: Batman shows off his asbestos costume. He is very mean to batwoman. Exclaiming your place belongs in the kitchen. Even after she proves himself he just won’t let it go. They launch a space shuttle in orbit in his honor and he’s annoyed by it. He’s tired of going to things dedicated to his name.
Overall he’s kinda a dick and it’s hysterical. The plots convoluted and contrived yet charming. Plus he has all these wierd costumes. Zebra Batman, genie Batman, rainbow Batman plus a lot I can’t remember off the top my head.
It’s a shame we can’t get these properly reprinted. If you are interested tho, Batman annuals classics is among the rare reprints, the panels and line work look so crisp it’s like 4k. Definetly recommended for someone that’s a bit wore out on the joker, rhas, clayface, etc.
I know there are other extended family members occasionally, his Uncle Philip in the Court of Owls and his cousin Kate Kane but did all of his grandparents die before his parents prematurely perished?
We’re probably a week or two away from Warner Bros. officially announcing Justice League on Blu-ray and Digital HD, but Walmart beat them to one piece of big news. The giant retailer…
The post ‘Justice League’ Blu-ray includes a bonus scene that wasn’t in theaters appeared first on Batman News.
