Wanted: One Iconic Clowny Nemesis. Must Love Bats.

Issue #4, Batman (Winter 1940) Moody!Monday, Batfans! monday You have Dragon to thank for this post. I’ve been so busy the last couple of months, I was unaware how desperately my comedic snarking upon CL was needed. Especially considering the awfulness of the day we’ve had. imissya (Not like the man lives with me or anything, so he gets the totally undiluted, BTTW version of yours truly. A “Best of Snarkstress” album, if you will. Daily.) imfab Either way, I have been informed that I need to do an update, and so, an update you shall get. lovespray Let’s. Do This. ...

Batsy And Cat, Sittin’ In A Tree…

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

So let’s see if the technology around here is planning to stick around and work a little longer, eh? Last month was a wash in the Snark department for precisely that reason.


And there towards the end of the month, especially, I just was SO frustrated and annoyed that my Snarky nature took a vacation.


But I’m back. *fingers crossed* Provided the tech holds out.



It’s Getting Downright UGLY Up In Gotham.

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)

Moody!Monday, Batfans!


Here’s hoping you had a lovely weekend. We spent ours celebrating Dragon’s Birthday, wandering a farmer’s market, having awesome breakfast with awesome friends, and glutting on Deadpool gaming goodness, with a side order of Sly Cooper for good measure.

Now it’s back to the old grindstone, as it were. At least for a few days before the holiday.

Not that that’s stopping our neighbors from celebrating with fireworks on Sunday night, apparently.

What THEY think they sound like: (wait for it…)


In reality:



And so, in order to distract myself from the overwhelming urge to go out and get all bent out of shape, let’s take a look at what our favorite Dynamic Duo is up to this time, shall we?


Batsy Goes Back To Basics

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940) Moody!Monday, Batfans! batcats I promised the first Monday of the month would be Batsy, and I’m determined to deliver. Now, let me explain a bit about what I’m gearing up to do. We’ve been following, thus far, Batsy and Robin through the Detective Comics line. That’s all well and good, but the stories have, of late, devolved into B&R v. gangsters. Which, frankly, I’ve been having a hell of a time snarking. There are, of course, the Batman annual issues, but those are HUGE (like, four to five comics per issue). However, some of them have introduced the most colorful of Batsy’s rogue’s gallery, and so, that is where I’m going. I mean, hey, if I’m only rolling out Batsy once a month, might as well make it interesting, yeah? I’ll break them into bite sized chunks (the same size as a standard issue) and work my way through. So strap yourselves in. We’re pressing the rewind button and snarking Batman #3. ...

Batsy Keeps It Close

dc94intro Issue #94, Detective Comics (Dec 1944) Batman & Robin: “No One Must Know!” Moody!Monday, Batfans!

It’s one hell of a gloomy day out there! I don’t know what it is… perhaps it’s just the darkness of the day. But it’s certainly not a “Dark” day all the way around! I’m still dealing with all of last week’s craziness, but the weekend was not a complete wash. And I have to say… ...


Batsy Lets it Rain!

dc87intro Issue #87, Detective Comics (May 1944) Batman & Robin: “The Man of a Thousand Umbrellas!” Tumultuous!Tuesday, Batfans! It’s a lovely grey day here in Soggy!Seattle. It’s Election Day. The day when polls are guaranteed to be clogged with peeps getting out to cast their votes. Luckily, here, we get our ballots mailed to us so we can mail them back or drop them in the box at our leisure, so Dragon and I already did our civic duty and made our voices heard. Here’s hoping every American who *can* vote, does. Because, remember… ...

Batsy Finds A Fishing Pole!

dc86intro Issue #86, Detective Comics (April 1944) Batman & Robin: “Danger Strikes Three!” Moody!Monday Batfans! For those of you who were paying attention, I did a little surprise update on Saturday via voice post. Hooray for randomness! If you haven’t listened to it yet, you should. Particularly if you’re wondering about my excursions into Dishonored and my mini review on Mockingbird Lane. I also explain just why I was absent last week. ...
