Batman - Legends Of The Dark Knight

Post by MLP* on Fri May 18, 2012 8:44 am

Picked up the new hardback reprinting Jim Aparo's early Brave and the Bold issues.

Read the first couple of issues and it's a hoot.

I love the fact that Batman turns up to a funeral in full costume and also has a godson. (So presumably he turned up to the christening in lycra as well !)

In the second issue, Batman is shot and the bullet lodges in his heart. Which the doctor's treat by putting a bandage over his costume. scratch

Glorious stuff ! lol!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes his Batman funny. I'll have to check that book out.

I still want a reprint book of the stories where Batman went Sci-Fi. I really do.

There is far too little Bat-Mite material available these days.

In the third issue, a blonde heiress's life is in danger but she wants to sneak out of the house anyway.
So she places a life sized dummy of herself in bed and then sneaks out of the house wearing a life size suit that makes her appear to be a male chinese waiter. Simples ! Very Happy

In issue 4 Deadman's girlfriend is going to to be sent to prison, so in order to spare her that he shoots and kills her. Shocked

The Teen Titans turn up with some toe curlingly "hip" and "groovy" dialogue too. Very Happy

As you would, naturally...

See, this is what I miss about the old days-those books had a unique logic all their own! Remember Bruce Wayne's insane elder brother, Thomas, who had been locked in an asylum for years as a dark family secret? Then Deadman decided that since Thomas was out of his mind anyway, he might as well lay permanent claim to his body... Laughing

I've reached the issue where Batman dies and the Atom has to climb inside his head and steer his corpse like one of the Numskulls.

There are not words... Shocked

And it's still more believable than 90% of modern Batman stories! Razz

What you need to find are the Super-Sons stories from the 1970s that Bob Haney wrote for World's Finest.













And there were a few more after those.

I still don't think I can recall ever reading a Super Sons story.
