Batman: Master of the Fighting Arts. And Tickling.

Let's start our week off with... well, let's face it: This blog is a bunch of nonsense, so let's start our week off with a bunch of nonsense, starting with Batman #49!

Well, if you gotta kill somebody, why not Weasel?

Issue 49 gave us the first appearance of the Mad Hatter and Vicki Vale:

Vicki apparently had one of those magic cameras that could photograph sound effects.  Thusly: 

Hey!  It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!):

I'm not at all comfortable with where that is going.  Doc, do you have any ideas?

Well... You can't argue with that.  Thanks, Doc Buzzkill.

On to issue 50.

Hmmmm... Let's not be hasty, Robin.  How MUCH money are we talking about here?

More with the camera that photographs sound effects:

and then there was this:

I've seen quite a few panels where Batman and Robin are locking up the criminals themselves.  Was there just no room for detention officers in the Gotham City Police budget back in the day?

Anyway, I'm afraid we're going to have to put up with Vicki Vale for a while.  She's there to get in the way, become a hostage, try and discover Batman's secret ID, and just otherwise be a complete impediment to getting anything done.  But that's what happens in some regard when you have a woman in your life, boys, so get used to it.

See you tomorrow!
