Random Great Moments in Batman History

And we're back!  Back to the only blog where you can see Batman fight a gigantic winged snake!


Or maybe he's dancing with the winged snake.  He and Robin look awfully choreographed there.

And I double-dog dare you to find Batman arguing with a .... well, what is that?


Is that a leprechaun?  A gnome?  An elf?  I'm really not sure what the difference is, and I don't want to offend any readers I have who may be leprechauns, gnomes or elves by getting it wrong.  I think it's a gnome, but someone will say I'm a bigot if it's actually a leprechaun or an elf, so I'm afraid to really cast a vote on it.  I'm not trying to be insensitive, but I really can't tell for sure.  I guess I'm just not a very good person.

And there's.... whatever that was:


Actually, that was kind of a sad story, so we're not going to make fun of that creature.  Although you do have to wonder how much time and energy was spent on his design.  But it was one of those "the strange-looking creature had a huge heart and sacrificed himself for us" stories, and those always make me weepy.  Have you ever seen The Iron Giant?  That makes me bawl like a baby with colic.

These panels were from Batman #142 and 143, by the way.

Good to be back!  See you tomorrow!

Shamelessly self advertising when relevant is my forte

What? You never even considered it could be a dwarf?

Nah, I know a dwarf when I see one.

What's the deal with Batman's cape in the not-dwarf panel?
