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… ...

Emo!Thor Gets His Mouth Slapped Clean Off

tmt191intro Issue #191, The Mighty Thor (August 1971) The Mighty Thor “A Time Of Evil!” Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! Also? Happy 10/11/12! Sorry this is a little late. We had a plumber in the house most of the day because we’ve been playing Russian Roulette with the hot water heater for almost 2 months now. We now have consistent hot water. This is made of awesome and win. And there was much celebration to be had! ...

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. ...

Emo!Thor Grabs A Blanket

tmt189intro Issue #189, The Mighty Thor (June 1971) The Mighty Thor “The Icy Touch of Death!” Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! The weather has taken a turn for the chilly around here again (FINALLY). Some of our favorite shows are back on the toob, with a few newbies making it into the mix, so we’ve been playing catch-up. Surprisingly, there are a few of the newer ones that weren’t horrifically as bad as I thought they would be, thus saving them into the “3 episode” queue. A quick explanation: We have what we call the “3EQ” wherein new shows get exactly three episodes to impress us. I try to rarely make the decision based on just the pilot because there have been plenty of shows that would’ve been snipped after seeing the first episode. ...

Emo!Thor Sees The Unseen!

Apologies. It’s been a long, tough day full of all sorts of emotional stuff. So I’m going to keep this part short and sweet. Life is about two things: ...

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 Mental

dc70intro Issue #70, Detective Comics (December1942) Batman & Robin: “The Man Who Could Read Minds!” So it’s late. And I apologize. But it must mean that I love y’all something fierce if I’m able to put aside my cranky pants about server outages when I tried to post before and give you some premium Bat!Snark on this fine, fine Tuesday evening. Let’s not dawdle. I’ll be all chatty on Thursday. ...

Batsy Gets Pranked

dc69intro Issue #69, Detective Comics (November 1942) Batman & Robin: “The Harlequin’s Hoax!” Moody!Monday Tempestuous!Tuesday, Batfans. Apologies for being a day late. A migraine yesterday put me out of commission. I have to admit, I was a bit trepidatious about doing this post. For those of you who haven’t already heard, at a Friday morning premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, one of the dregs of society decided it was time to gain his 15 minutes of fame by tear gassing and opening fire in a packed theater in Aurora, Colorado. He claimed 12 lives and injured 60 more theater goers, including children, and effectively sucked the joy out of going to see TDKR for many fans. Warner Bros was stunned, hell, the whole country was, and now there’s another gun control /violence in comics and movies debate raging in the media. ...
