Batman #14 preview:
no don't hurt my alfred
Flamingo is indeed fab though i feel like he should actually dress like a flamingo
Also Mighty Lord Death Man needs to be brought back in Batman Inc
Him mowing down pedestrians in Tokyo whilst laughing with that insane "HAA HAA HAA, It's the kill that makes the thrill!"
Love his dialogue, it's so damned manic and lyrical.
Simon Hurt my Alfred.
"Pennyworth you remember me don't you?"
"Oh yes sir, I remember you just fine."
Hurt had the smuggest grin ever in that scene
I like to imagine he sounds like Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange
nooooooooooooo!!! not that awful story with Hush!!!
"Ivy, be my lover".
"No, I must save the kids by becoming human again, bruce wayne, I'm sure you're batman, but actually you're not, help me becoming human again"
"Ivy, you're such a wonderful person. I, Bruce Wayne, will help you. Hush, stay away from Ivy, it is me she loves".
"Bruce, I hate you, and now I have one more reason to destroy your legacy: you're trying to take away my girl from me".
"But I'm not your girl, I'm a plant and now I'm human. Oh noooes, what a mistake, I should become a plant again".
"Bruce she died because of you, I really hate you for good now".
A.J. Lieberman tried so hard to make Hurt something special, and yet, all he managed to do is make him even more pathetic. This story was nothing more than a threesome without the sex.
I don't care for Ivy either, I think she's just a bland villainess. At least she was fun when she was created and only wanted to seduce Batsy.
That story was awful
I meant the other stories with her and the Robinson park orphans not that atrocity of a story
I like to think that A.J. Lieberman run on Gotham Knights never existed.
Just read Dectective #13.....Why does Batman use Alfred's real name when he's talking to him while in the field??
On page 4 he's standing over some guys he just pummeled and talking to "Alfred".....using his name. What if some of the thugs are playing possum? Now granted...I know many will say "Alfred who?" ...there lots of Alfreds. But on the outside chance that someone is watching him using a boom mic or other tech that picks up sound at a distance, Souldnt he use a code name like Shadow one or what ever???
Paul Dini's Poison Ivy is neat. She tends to be bland and forgettable in the hands of other writers.
Finally got around to reading me copy of Detective 14 today and I gotta say it's one of the first times I've thoroughly enjoyed a Poison Ivy story. Had no idea she was in Birds of Prey either. Kinda makes me wanna go pick up some issues of it
Birds of Prey is really neat I definitely recommend checking that series out
I dug Detective Comics too
Looking forward to seeing what happens with Ivy and Clayface next issue
With Bruce Wayne publicly funding Batman, even if one of the thugs knows which Alfred Batman is talking to it wont seem strange for Batman to know/work with Alfred
He's been calling him Alfred by his first name in the field for...nearly as far back as I can remember. It's not a symptom of the new 52.
Yeah, A.J. Lieberman should have never happened to Batman.
Early Review of Batman #14
Small spoilers. If this guy is to be believed, then Snyder may be living up to his supposed master piece. Guess we'll find out tomorrow. Here's hoping.
i feel like im taking crazy pills
Batman has one look!!!
Joker invented the keyboard tie damn it
You've done nothing Bruce Wayne! NOTHING!!!!
Damn that Nightwing...he's so hot right now
That Lil' Gotham book was brilliant. One of the most entertaining Batman books I've read in recent memory.
The artwork in that comic book is so cute
It's filling the hole in my heart that Tiny Titans being cancelled left
