jason got addicted venom to in red hood arsenal
You think it would be Roy to do something like that because… You know.
roy talks about that a in that story saying I can’t believe you would do this after I told you what its like
man jason really is a lot like bruce in his younger days
I’m terrible thinking there was a time where Roy had confessed what his past drug problems were like with Jason and I’m just reminded of this scene from Walk Hard.
sometimes who you need to be afraid of is the normal guy
what a spooky batman short story and the way this man reads it makes it really chilling
I’m rereading the return of bruce wayne its been its been years since I last read it man the art in that book is good
I also like how ram v and chip are both using grants work at the same time they must have enjoyed his writing to and it ties all the stuff together nicely
I look so beautiful.
Unrelated to Batman, but I’m enjoying the Superman books a lot. Action Comics and Superman are consistently good and it’s incredible how rare it is to have both great runs.
yes its wonderful to see superman doing so good right now his comics are good he has a new show and a movie coming up worlds finest is back its good to be superman fan right now
When it comes to the Batman titles, Ram V Detective Comics run is it’s own beast when it’s exploring Gotham Gothic history. Batman and Jim Gordon dynamic is back and it’s great. With Demons, reform Two-face, and ten eye man involved. What’s not to love in a mystery saga like this. It’s best to read it as volumes because the single issues always leave me wanting more.
It’s also the only series where Renee Montoya is rightfully put in her place as commissioner and it might be the series to give her a proper return as question.
Chip Zdarksy Batman run is not always perfect but I do enjoy many parts of it. Even when it lacks originality. It’s a lot of fan service and critique of Batman as a hero. It’s stuff like this that would work well in motivating new type of legacies, but considering where past that stuff I do wonder what’s going to happen next for Batman. The only thing I wish was improved was the the art.
Do you know how disappointing it is when you have Jorge Jimenez during Failsafe arc and the next it’s the pencils of Mike Hawthorne. It’s almost unreadable.
I agree I’d rather see her in the mask
I’m loving ram v’s run as well did you read the annual? it ties into the return of bruce
I’m really enjoying chips run as well even if I hate seeing the batfamily fight chip isn’t working on his own with this one so I understand he does not have as much freedom as he normally would I look forward to him bringing them back together
its also a great time to be a batman fan the comics are good batman and robin is back batman has a movie coming up as well worlds finest is still selling well
batman has two shows just around the corner the batfamily and the caped crusader
and he has that holiday movie coming out merry little batman
I get what you mean but the story in that one wasn’t bad and we have really good art again
oh and another good thing is batwing is gonna be in a book again I know you didn’t forget that @Samsonkillingtime
the batfamily book I’m looking forward to most right now is the one where santa trained batman I love that idea so much
alfred has been dead for four years now time sure flies
so did you enjoy venom @Samsonkillingtime its the story that made o neal one of my favorite writers
My thoughts on that story? Well let’s see:
I think the story is really memorable and while somewhat dated, I think Venom is one of the most important Batman stories to read about.
After failing to save a child and being unable to stop a big crook, he decides to visit an callous scientist whose creation of a enchantment drug intrigue Batman. Being unable to live up to his own standards of worth does decide to take the venom drug and become stronger than before. However the drug also increases his emotional volatility and violent tendencies that Batman realize the true dangers of the drug when the doctor and a rogue general take advantage of that weakness.
The way Batman portrayed while addicted, it’s usually is him being more confident and the increase frustration he has when he doesn’t get his way and more drugs does ring true to most drug addictions.
I think what I found interesting is between the Venom storyline is the withdrawal effects of the drug. Batman has to detox himself for six months and even while temporarily captured by the scientist, his tempted again to take the drug. As well as the general son being this sensitive and intelligence person to later be used as a Guinea pig for Venom and become a brute. There something there about the father enforcing the drug on his son to embrace that toxic masculinity. I’m not entirely knowledgeable about that subject. Let me just say that after a previously ego-tripped Batman realize he needs helps, he cries to Alfred on the phone.
Lastly, while a serious storyline, I think there are a few chuckles I had that were intentional and not intentional.
Batman saying he’s been eating healthier cereal is just my favorite.
As well as Batman being scary when he laughs
I like the part where the drug dealer uses the child’s death to get batman on the drug
I’ve always thought children were batmans greatest weakness and his strength
I always wondered why none of the bad guys who want to kill batman never turned themselves into a child he would never see it coming might even take them in
we have o neal to thank for the trade story format as well it was his idea
