The Whining Joke – Batgirl #41 Joker Variant “Scandal”

This week, the comic book world was buzzing about the upcoming Batgirl #41 – by which, of course, I mean #41 since the “New 52” relaunch in 2011; the character of Barbara Gordon first took up the moniker in 1967 for Detective Comics #359, “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl.” Of course, you can hardly […]

The Batman/True Detective Mash-Up You Knew Was Coming

http://youtu.be/s2Mmw7WTIX8 How about the True Detective opening involving the world’s greatest detective? Even the Yellow King doesn’t stand a chance. I am now thinking of McConaughey, with handlebar mustache in full Batman garb, giving exposition on the need for villains to make heroes worthwhile. Alright, alright, alright.
