Again, not to blog about blogging, but I've noticed that I find more material in the bigger-named books of yore than their less-known and less-successful competitors. For example, I read some Golden Age Ray stories and got nothin'. But then, I get my mitts on a reprint of Batman #1, and it's an embarrassment of riches.
Let's start with a little detail:
Batman's villains are kept in an insane asylum located in Metropolis? I would think Superman would have had Hugo Strange eating that gun before he made it anywhere near Gotham. Surely that's just an editing mistake.
Hey! It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!)
This one is so amazing, it takes two panels:
Meanwhile, I know I've mentioned this before, but it always kind of surprises me when Batman has no problem killing people:
Yeah, I don't think he hates it that much, because he does it a lot.
He also doesn't mind putting Robin in danger just to make a point:
That's a good (albeit fourth wall-breaking) message, but isn't he actually encouraging children to pick fights with mobsters? I mean, he just had Robin do it and then he tells the readers to start fighting them, so... I guess you just have to do the best you can, Timmy! Batman says so!
See you tomorrow!
