The Flight of the Sharp-Billed Woodpecker Wednesday!

From Detective #278.... it's a Giant-Sized story!

Get it? Giant-sized.

Hey, I don't make you read my blog. How much do you pay to read this thing every day?

That's what I thought.

Anyway, the Comics Code is in full swing, so we can't be too scary, so let's have Batman fight a giant!

Dang! One of the drawbacks to being a giant is that woodpeckers apparently mistaken you for a tree and poke you.

That is one pretty stupid giant. I mean, didn't you notice that Batman's lips weren't moving? And that he was just kind of bouncing around and seemed really susceptible to wind currents? I'm always surprised when stuff like that works at all.

Hey, going back to Detective #276! It's another giant penny!

Nope, that isn't the one from "The Penny Plunderers." That's in the Batcave. Apparently, you can't hardly go down the street in Gotham City without dodging a giant penny.

What do you do with giant pennies? Well, if you get enough of them, you can buy a giant stamp!

And what are you supposed to do with a giant stamp? Pick it up with giant stamp tongs:

Do you want me to keep going? Because I can do this allllll day.

Check out the villain:

Apparently, "working out at the gym" is not one of the hobbies the Hobby Robber has gotten around to stealing just yet. And does he like to rob hobbies because some hobby of his gave him those Mr. Spock ears? If they do a reboot of him, I'll totally buy it just to see how it turns out.

See you tomorrow!

well a giant bat blimp is pretty lame, but to be fair during wwII we had inflatable tanks to help fool german spy planes.

That is profound . . .

I didn't even know Stamp Tongs existed. But those giant ones sure do look like fun...

In that first panel, Robin doesn't look that much smaller than the two supposed giants. Did whoever drew it ever hear of perspective?
