this seems as likely a place as any other to post my fave line about Assbats, from CBR: Perhaps this is a book that most people won't look kindly upon because it needs to be viewed in a context they're not aware of yet.

I saw that a couple of days ago. Pretty good for fan-fiction, it has to be made by industry ringers, as it is pretty slick. The take on Wesker & Scarface was pretty cool.

It's better than the 20 minutes of Smallville I watched a long time back.

Adams has always been a TERRIBLE writer, and his artwork has totally gone downhill in the last twenty years or so too (my suspicion is that there are lots of assistants doing most of the actual drawing/finishing). RIP Dick Giordano.

The 60s/70s Adams-Batmans really were something to look at tho', back in the day

skimmed thru this in the comic bk shop yesterday, even more of a trainwreck than i feared, weirdly a cpl of pages are inked by michael golden. can't believe there's meant to be twelve issues of this shit - has adams ever drawn twelve issues of anything, all in a row?

I don't quite get the venom being cut loose on the Adams' Batman. The thing is pretty much a straight up bronze age style comic, which should make sense considering who is making the thing. Clean up a bit of the language from Robin and you could drop this thing straight into a 100 Page Detective Batman Family Giant from 78. Maybe I have a heart or a soft head for such comics, I didn't think it was that bad. I just think fans now over think stuff to an extent.

Maybe they should have put on the yellow circle around the bat to make it obvious, I don't know.

As for the artwork, the guy really hasn't lost much at all, some of the pages are almost 3D. The inking style is more Klaus Janson than say Dick Giordano on a lot of the book, which is some of the difference.

I hope this comic sells so strongly that its tone gets adopted by all Batman comics so that Neal Adams can hold the distinction of being the guy who took the camp out of Batman and then 40 years later put it back.

koogs, Thursday, 4 September 2014 02:58 (four years ago) Permalink

It's also quite good, it's a proper sequel to Halloween though so it doesn't quite have the freshness of Halloween. That said it has the most rational introduction of Robin I've ever seen. Both books are really noirs borrowing from The Godfather, and are also intended to follow directly after Year One, so there are a ton of Year One callbacks, which aren't heavy handed

Brakhage, Thursday, 4 September 2014 18:43 (four years ago) Permalink

It's a shame that all this was retconned out of existence, I have no idea what the actual sequence of events are in 52-Bats

Brakhage, Thursday, 4 September 2014 18:45 (four years ago) Permalink

Oh and I have to say after the hermetic convoluted insanity of the Morrison run (which I enjoyed) it's a total breath of fresh air to read what is just a solid, well thought out mystery

Brakhage, Thursday, 4 September 2014 18:47 (four years ago) Permalink

One insane Batman book - the David Lapham series, City of Crime, which made NO sense but in a way is totally modern Batman nuttiness (grimy underclass life mixed in with bizarre mud-people dopplegangers!)

The Morrison run start to finish is fucking boss, bigger investment than 1 GN though

Nhex, Thursday, 4 September 2014 18:59 (four years ago) Permalink

oh! if you don't mind batman being more of an ominous background force (which is how i think batman works best because otherwise you're dealing with a focal character who is a dork in tights), gotham central is really really good. up there with year one (which works with batman as the focus because it's constantly pointing out how dorky he is).

Philip Nunez, Thursday, 4 September 2014 19:46 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the Morrison Bat-Opus is maybe my favorite mainstream comics thing from the past five years or so.

People seem to be pretty keen on Synder's run but I haven't read any of it. That might be a place to start.

Yeah I've been reading Snyder's run which is great (the colorist is fantastic) but this Year Zero thing totally confused me as to what exactly the Bat history is now. I don't have the fortitude to actually find out, I'm just along for the ride

If I remember right he had just gotten going on Bats Inc when the 52 rug was pulled out and there was no way Inc could have existed in continuity, so he just said 'look at least let me finish this damn book' so Inc kept right on going

Brakhage, Thursday, 4 September 2014 20:48 (four years ago) Permalink

I'm not absolutely sure about that, so please correct me. One of the hangovers from this reboot is Memento-esque brain damage

IIRC, Batman Inc and Johns's GL were the only New 52 books generally unaffected by the reboot.

they should just abandon continuity altogether imo

I think you could make a solid argument that they already have, however unintentionally.
