I like the idea that Batman names each fist a different sandwich, "Taste that reuben!" POW "Have a bite of this Monte Cristo!" BIF!

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.

Yeah, I'm making my first comic store trip for two months today. Will definitely have to get this.

wait, when did Aquaman get his hand back

also when did he start killing people

I lettered in Sam and Carl (HI DERE), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 15:37 (eight years ago) link

doesn't he get a new hand every three years or so?

also I don't know but I would assume he was killing dudes when he had a HARPOON for a hand

bitchmaid (sic), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 23:31 (eight years ago) link

like, presumably he wasn't killing fish with it

as someone who doesn't know much about comics i have to ask, did aquaman always have a mullet?

http://tinypic.com/r/s0wvar/7 (a hoy hoy), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 03:06 (eight years ago) link

not until the 90s

(maybe 80s? that Craig Hamilton mini with the blue costume?)

bitchmaid (sic), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 03:33 (eight years ago) link

I've only ever seen this ad, dunno if that's mullet or bubbles

bitchmaid (sic), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 03:35 (eight years ago) link

In my memory that's a mix between a classic mullet and a Lief Garrett 70s winged monstrosity. By the way, that's his uniform in the mini - he looks like a figure skater covered in kelp.

Despite all that, I remember liking the story. I was young and dumb, I'm sure.

Didn't Aquaman have a semi-long hair in the 90s, not a mullet? It was Supes who had the horrible mullet.

I thought Aquaman was now back to his "classic" (pre-90s) look, but apparently not, at least not in this comic.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 13 October 2010 06:39 (eight years ago) link

Interestingly, Neal Adams has no use for continuity. I think it's supposed to be an early adventure, but it's so clearly just Neal Adams doing things the way they should be. As we shall next issue when Batman meets the current president, Ultimate Warrior.

Well, because whatever happened changed him. (Dr. Superman), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 07:25 (eight years ago) link

yeah, the Hamilton mini was 1986 [xp to tuomas]

bitchmaid (sic), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 08:02 (eight years ago) link

Aquaman was iirc given his hand back by The Lady Of The Lake in return for defeating The Thirst, although this was a water filled glove kind of affair. I think his proper hand came back after he used the bones of it to pull Sub Diego back onto dry land while he was the Dweller In The Depths and was properly fixed while he was a Black Lantern.

I should get out more.

Fucking DC. Return of Bruce Wayne is running so late that he's already back in these bloody 'Road Home' things. Why don't they delay THEm so it all makes sense. And why is Return running late anyway? Each issue has a different artist and they still can't get it right. Fucksake!

Morrison's at fault there, as evidence by artists dropping out when the scripts don't arrive and rush-jobs by hacks going to print late instead.

kinda goes with morrison, but can't believe they don't make him turn in the whole fucking series in advance at this point.

DC have still blown their own scheduling on it though, dropping FOUR of the side-mini-series issues in ONE WEEK and getting the "now read X next!" blurbs wrong in at least one

I have no idea what is going on in this comic, but Mr. Adams has kindly put together a recap page like this. Now, having read it, I really have no idea what is going on.

New 52 Batman is trying way harder to share his feelings than Bat D1ck of the DC New Earth from Batman Year One on. That said, the dude goes through planes and cars like mad though in the current comics.

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 (one month ago) link

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

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

untuned mass damper (mh), Monday, 12 August 2019 00:00 (one month 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.
