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.

John Carpenter is also writing a Joker comic, which is kinda neat.

Neal Adams' artwork has all those thick lines, it looks more Kubert than himself in a way. I'm guessing he works on a digital board probably drawing on top of scanned thumbnails now. That modern style has altered the look of quite a few comic artists earlier works.

earlnash, Sunday, 11 August 2019 23:00 (three years ago) link

I know he’s a consummate professional, but I’d buy a Batman series where Neal incorporates his growing earth theories

untuned mass damper (mh), Sunday, 11 August 2019 23:59 (three years ago) link

I mean, professional and wouldn’t throw personal causes in

untuned mass damper (mh), Monday, 12 August 2019 00:00 (three years ago) link

"Neal incorporates his growing earth theories"

You know he could just do a Warlord series and be able to make it work 'kinda' in-continuity.

Probably could somehow work it with K'un-Lun in Iron Fist perhaps too.

I always thought that one could easily do some AM radio crank character in the Marvel Universe reading into all this madness always going on in the comics upon the people. I'm kind of surprised that someone like Bendis did not do it, as it would have worked in some of his story lines.

A tribute character to Art Bell would be cool, but I think that would work better in the DC comics.

Just to say Cliff Chiang‘s Catwoman miniseries is friggin DELIGHTFUL and I recommend it HIGHLY. It’s a standard DKR “what if but old and more dystopia” miniseries setup, but the execution is wonderful. WHY ARE NOT MORE COMICS LILE THIS, THINKS OLD MAN

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 17 January 2022 00:04 (eight months ago) link

Heard a lot of good things about this! Also about gentrification supposedly?

Daniel_Rf, Monday, 17 January 2022 11:52 (eight months ago) link

Yeah it feels like the first DC comic I've read since the 90s that was **about something** instead of the usual self-regarding DC bullshit about **what I means to be an icon** etc etc

But it wears all that lightly - mostly it's just a delightful, grounded, fun "one more heist" story with a good villain, and makes a couple staple characters (Croc, Riddler) more interesting than I've seen them before, possibly ever. It's **really** good if it's Chiang's first writing job.

Kind of reminds me of the Cooke runs on Catwoman and Spirit in the '00s

It's fun. Really love his artwork

Nhex, Monday, 17 January 2022 18:12 (eight months ago) link

(surprised by how much this was, £5.60 for 50 pages on comixology, but then wonder if that's just inflation for you)

(TDKR was $2.95 in 1986 which would be $8.84 in 2020, about £6.50, physical copy, so maybe ok)

(but i will wait for a sale)

I’m mostly still a shameful stealer but this is the first time I’ve read and enjoyed something enough to buy it in print

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 17 January 2022 21:32 (eight months ago) link

Lonely City is a Black Label book, so it's being printed in oversize magazine format. That's probably why the digital price seemed jacked up, to match the physical

Nhex, Monday, 17 January 2022 21:46 (eight months ago) link

This does look cool, thx for the rec

Yeah the two physical issues (so far) seem to be $8.99 / $11.99 for 48 pgs. (each); vs. $2.95 cover price for my 1986 copy of TDKR 3 (46 pgs.) = $7.50 in 2021 dollas… I’ll wait for the collection, I guess.

Rockin’, and rollin’, and whatnot (morrisp), Monday, 17 January 2022 21:52 (eight months ago) link

my 20th anniversary hardback copy of tdkr now goes on ebay for less than i paid for it, even before inflation. and i don't think i've actually read it, other than the extra bits.

but every 5 years that seems to have an anniversary edition. or they decide to reprint it without the colouring or some crap. did they ever fix the swastika tattoo on that one woman's chest?

Nhex, Wednesday, 13 April 2022 06:08 (five months ago) link

The first arc is a little stiff, but after that it gets better and better.

Greg Rucka is a good influence on Ed Brubaker but an inferior writer in almost every way. One Brubaker leaves, it gets less interesting, but it's still worth finishing.

It exists in an interesting space where crime writers still wanted to riff on Homicide: Life on the Streets (a huge influence, even down to the colouring) but no one was really watching The Wire yet.

Allen and Montoya were two fun characters that DC lost sight of because of racism and editorial carelessness
