    It's time to appreciate this great writer! His "Brave & The Bold" stories are all quite good. And when he wrote a bad story it was still enjoyable.

    He didn't care about continuity and even contradicted his own stories!

    He rocked.

    I just got the newest Showcase TPB reprinting Brave & The Bold stories by Bob Haney, some of them are pretty funky seeing Bruce Wayne with long sideburns and turtleneck sweaters.

    I've been wanting to buy the Showcase books, but since I have a lot of the originals I haven't yet bought 'em. But in time I will. I don't like it that they aren't in colour though.

    Bob Haney could put so much into 22 pages. Modern writers would need a big crossover for the things he did in one issue.
