One of these things is not like the others.

Maybe Fredric Wertham was on to something after all...

Pop Culture Within Pop Culture – Part 1

Alfred Pennyworth‘s acquainted with the classics. All of the classics.

And here I thought being able to tie a bow tie backwards, without looking, while driving a limo was impressive. :)

I Love You, Uncle Batman

2014/07/15

Enoch Birnam is living the dream of every ten-year old boy out there.

I would've loved to see how this kid's baptism went down.

Studies in Douchebaggery – Part 6

2014/06/21

The amount of contempt that Batman has towards his friends and allies is dwarfed only by the size of his own insufferable ego.

Well, someone certainly has an unhealthily narcissistic sense of self-worth.

I’m guessing this was before you came up with the idea of Batman Incorporated?

This hypocritical view of forced retirement comes to you courtesy of The Brave and the Bold #113 (June-July 1974) by Gardner F. Fox, Bob Haney, Ed Herron, Jim Aparo, Bob Brown, Joe Kubert, and George Papp.

Heavily Armed Robbery

2014/06/13

All I can do is reiterate what I said in a previous blog entry: I don’t think that the criminals in Gotham City can do anything normally.

Three bets that he blows all his ill-gotten gains on ammo for his next heist.

The Annals of Superhuman Law – Part 1

2014/05/07

Vigilante hippies who bring their own legal counsel are the worst kind of hippies.

Don't try and confuse the goddamn Batman with your legal mumbo jumbo you filthy tree hugger.

Our Father Who Art In Heaven…?

I don’t know who young Bruce Wayne is praying to and I’m not sure I want to know.

Sounds like he's praying to the Dark God DiDio to me. :P

The Lunar Archivist’s Sketchbook – Part 14

2013/12/30

As my final blog entry for 2013, I thought I’d post something unique from my original artwork collection. And here it is.

What’s so special about this drawing of Batman, you ask? The fact that it was done not by a comic book artist, but a comic book writer, and a pretty big name at that: none other than Grant Morrison.

As anyone who’s seen the sketchbook for the 2005 reimagining of the Seven Soldiers of Victory – which contains Morrison’s own concept art, character redesigns, and liner notes – knows, he’s actually a pretty talented artist. But when I originally received this sketch from him at San Diego Comic Con way back in 1998, this wasn’t something he openly advertised “because then everyone would want one”, as he jokingly put it.

And that’s all for this year, ladies and gentlemen. See you all in 2014! πŸ™‚

Presidential Assassination, DC Universe Style

2012/11/25

You know that free pass Batman always seems to give to the Joker that allows the latter to keep on living no matter how terrible the things that he does are? It apparently doesn’t apply to Lex Luthor.

This is what happens when Batman puts the “dark” in “Dark Knight”.

This hypothetical scenario courtesy of Superman/Batman #5 (February 2004) by Jeph Loeb, Dexter Vines, and Ed McGuinness.

Talking Things Through, Batman Style

2012/08/09

I think someone needs to brush up on his hostage negotiation skills.

So you’re pro-police brutality and anti-death penalty, then? Got it.

This questionable technique has been brought to you by Batman #423 (September 1988) by Jim Starlin, Dave Cockrum, and Mike DeCarlo.
