So I go to the Fantasy Shop, (no, not THAT kind of fantasy shop) to go and pick up my monthlys, like I aways do. Among the titles is "Batman". I pick it up, and look at the cover. It's the dark knight himself holding a few batarangs and there is a big Joker's card in the background. I'm thinkin, "cool. another Joker rampage." So I give the guy my $2.99, he bags and boards it for me, and I'm on my way. Out in the parking lot, I skim thru my haul, and I notice Batman is not a comic book at all!! It's set up like an actual NOVEL with chapters and everything!! It has a little picture here and there on the sides, but even THOSE suck! Now dont get me wrong. I read my share of novels. Fight club was amazing. But when i buy a COMIC BOOK, I expect it to be a COMIC BOOK.

Which issue is it?

And why are you  having an ultimate cow about the format of your comi.. er, graphi... er, you know, the drawings?

(Did you read Miller's _The Dark Knight Returns_?    If so, did you have a cow about how that was formatted, too?)

I'm happy to say that I kicked the addiction. I've been comic book free since 1996.  TeddyR

It's Batman #663.

The problem with the "drawings" (they are all done in c.g.i.) is that there are so few of them. Theres maybe 1 per page and its up in a corner or off to the side. The rest of the page is completely filled up with paragraphs all text book-style. No word bubbles, no sound effects, no panels, nothing.


D.K. was amazing. So was D.K.2. Frank Miller is really talented.

I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

I can understand you're being upset, I'm dyslexic (not really bad, but it can be a problem sometimes) and as a child the only way I could learn to read was through comic books, made me a big fan of Captain America, Ironman, The Fantastic Four etc. I would have been real mad if I picked up the latest issue of Spiderman and found 1 illustration per page and the rest text like a school book, at that point in my life it would have been very difficult for me to read the story and comprehend what I read, let alone enjoy it. I enjoy reading just about anything, the dyslexia seldom rears its ugly head, and I can enjoy a good book when I want to. This is all thanks to comic books, I really believe that comic books are a great form of art. Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup

Okay, now I get your reaction.  I've seen issues like that.   No, I do not like them, Sam I am.

Sorry, I didn't get where you were coming from there.

I thought the battle (involving the Plastic Man) at the end of DK 2 was just.. awesome.  =)

We had a term for that among comic collectors; we called them Marvel Zombies. TongueOut

Wait for Issue 666. Grant Morrison is writing it and he is one of the best Authors Batman ever had.

You can scratch the "Batman Ever Had" part off it, and just say best authors ever!  Grant Morrison rocks!

I just bought and read "The Doom Patrol: The Painting That Ate Paris" and loved every part of it...

Dean is right of course, Grant is one of the best.

His Animal Man story "Coyote Gospel" (in the first Tpb) about the brave being who has to suffer and endure the pain of being thrown of cliffs and  blown into pieces perpetually always  brings a tear in my eye.

Alas poor Wili E.Coyote, for I knew him well a fellow of infinite creativity and pain-endurance or as Robin williams put it: the personification of the human spirit to never give up.

Believe you can hardly go wrong with anything the man made.

As for Batman his story ""Gothi"c ranks as favorite about the Batman Stories.


By the way I am writing the newsletter for a Comic-store.
