I bought into the hype, the news coverage, the coverage of the spoiler in the other coverage and all that stuff. I went to a comic shop and bought the special, first-print, non-alternate cover of “Batman #50,” aka the “Batman and Catwoman’s Wedding Issue.” And I bought the one before it, #49. So first thing, […]

The internet doesn’t need more arguments, yet that won’t stop me. I’m going to weigh in on some (young)age-old Batman debates: Issue 1.)

Henry has had a couple days of Batman-fueled energy. He can’t stop talking about it, or like it, or quoting it. It’s like he’s reading my mind. It’s never easy understanding a toddler. Here now are his translations for Batman-related phrases. “Bat-nand” = Batman. “Wah-din” = Robin. “Bat Cabe” = Batmobile. It sounds like “Bat […]
