Hey, hey! I have it on very good authority that Marvel and DC legendary writer Tony Isabella is going to be checking out our little comic book funhouse! That's like Joe Montana coming to watch my flag football game! I've been a fan of Tony's since I was a small tyke, so that's a huge honor.
So, let's check out World's Finest v1 #21. Mostly because I'm pretty sure Tony Isabella had nothing to do with it:
As a concept, Robin should have been a disaster. I mean, you have this creepy guy skulking around the shadows of Gotham City with a kid in tow wearing green shorts and elf shoes. Yet it worked, because we all wished we could have been Robin. You know, we didn't actually want the big responsibilites, but we wanted to be able to swing around on rooftops, go cruising in the Batmobile, and smack the smallest henchman while Batman did the heavy lifting. It was a nice fantasy to have.
But check this out:
This is the kind of disappointment you get when the girl of your dreams finally agrees to go out with you and you learn she swears at inappropriate times and chain smokes. Hey, Bats, if I wanted my adult male role model to make me feel worse about my mistakes, I'll go sit in the same room with my old man. Jerk.
Meet Sam Garth!
Sam Garth takes himself way too seriously as an amateur photographer, Sam does.
Of course, I can't throw stones. I'm proud of this blog, so it's not like I have a life, either. Rock on, Sam!
Hey, Batman! Has your mood picked up yet?
Well, at least now I know it isn't just me. Batman is simply having one of those days.
What's the most happenin' spot in town? Wherever the amateur photographers club meets!:
I'm not surprised the girl is thrilled that someone even slightly less nerdy than the club members showed up. Frankly, I'm impressed they had a girl there at all. It's like that one girl who you spot every so often at the comic shop. Even if you're wearing green shorts and elf shoes, you still have a chance with her over the guys focusing on the Heroclix tournament.
Batman? Feeling any better?
Okay, sure. Hooray for Dick! We'll take that however you meant it.
See you tomorrow!
