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. ...

Batsy Gets A Little Dandy

dc81intro Issue #81, Detective Comics (November 1943) Batman & Robin: “The Cavalier of Crime!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! I trust you all had a pleasant weekend, filled with all sorts of awesomeness that is unique to you? Fabulous. We did too. There was Prototype 2 playing and writing and show-catching-up-on. There was Cabin In The Woods and Avengers and fangirlish squeeing. All in all… a typical weekend around here. ...

Batsy and Boobs!

dc80intro Issue #80, Detective Comics (October 1943) Batman & Robin: “The End of Two-Face!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As I do every year, I encourage you to take this time to feel up the boobs in your life and do your part to keep this cancer at bay. And I’m looking at both men AND women for this. Breast cancer isn’t just an exclusively female problem. Men, you have nipples. (It’s well documented, in fact!) So don’t forget to feel up your own man-titties and get thee to a doctor if you feel anything out of sorts (aside from a delightful tingle, perhaps). ...

Batsy Gets Curiouser and Curiouser…

dc74intro Issue #74, Detective Comics (April 1943) Batman & Robin: “Tweedledum and Tweedledee!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! We’re baaack! There’s nothing quite like a vacation to refresh your creative juices and remind you of how much you love being home… hot water heater issues and arachnifoes notwithstanding. Texas didn’t implode from the immense amount of awesome that our trip afforded it and really? I’ve come to appreciate the state in a new way. A way that doesn’t include us living there. Lessons learned (warning: This is about to get real long, y’all): ...

Batsy Gets A New Hat

dc73intro Issue #73, Detective Comics (March 1943) Batman & Robin: “The Scarecrow Returns!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! Happy National Chocolate Pecan Pie day! (Or, y’know, Tuesday and post pie day.) Sorry about the delay, getting back into the work week is always a bit of an adjustment after our thrilling weekends, during which we quest so far, conquer so many lands, and flat out face-stab those who oppose our will. All from the comfort of our living room. Air conditioned to protect against the screamingly hot Pacific Northwest summer. Two whole days in the mid nineties, y’all. It was bedlam. I think I saw a neighbor spontaneously combust. ...

Batsy Gets His License

dc72intro Issue #72, Detective Comics (February 1943) Batman & Robin: “License For Larceny!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! It was another glorious weekend here in greater Seattle, with balmy temps and sunlit skies. And do you know what we did? We spent it inside our cave here at Hus Af Snark, being antisocial geeksters. Because that’s what we do around here sometimes. Well, okay, so maybe not entirely antisocial. But our interactions with the populace at large were mainly abbreviated and punctuated by long stretches of “I don’t wanna be around people right now”-ness. ...

A Crime A Day Keeps The Batsy At Bay

dc71intro Issue #71, Detective Comics (Jan 1943) Batman & Robin: “A Crime A Day!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! Summer officially descended upon our fair city, bringing with it temps in the low 90s and the overwhelming panic that generally accompanies such dramatic changes in weather. Thankfully, most of the city was too busy spending time out at SeaFair to really have a chance to indulge in their hand-wringing antics, but true to form, on the news this morning, the anchors were all, “OMG! SO HOT! CAN WE HAVE THE COLD BACK NOW PLEASE?” And my favorite weatherman, Sam, was all, “LOL! NO! JUST KIDDING!” ...
