In Which Batman and Robin Spank Alien Children

I was bordering on technical difficulties, but it looks like they're resolved.  You can't keep a good blog down!

Let's celebrate by taking a look at Batman #137.  You say you aren't familiar with Batman #137?  There's a reason for that.  Several reasons actually.

Like this guy:

To be fair to Batman, I don't really see the "Robin" portion of "the Team of Mr. Marvel and Robin" doing much, either.

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

Ah, those teenage years.

The word "boner" always makes for good comedy.

And just in case Mr. Marvel wasn't awful enough, check this guy out:

Well, thar be fussin and feudin' words, pahdnah!  Ah'll make catfish stew out'n yer clues and show ye thet AH'M the smartified one herebouts!

It was as bad as the premise sounds.  But just when I was about to give up, along comes this:

Yes, it's aliens on a field trip to Earth.

I repeat: Aliens on a field trip to Earth!

Hijinks ensued, of course.  This one was the dud:

Um... they're balloons.  If you can't figure that out, you probably shouldn't be in the workforce.

But we end with Random Spankings! (tm!), so there's that:

Ah.... comics.

See you tomorrow!

I'm gonna have to read this issue for myself.
"The Brand". Wow.

The Brand was one of the worst characters ever. He reminded me of the original Vigilante (the cowboy version). Oddly enough, The Brand makes his escape in this story on a motorcycle... and the original Vigilante would ride one in his later years.
