Hello everyone, and welcome to the latest installment of the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
This week we’re going to continue the celebration of our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY holy crap I never thought we’d make it this far – ahem, anyway. We’re continuing with some more anniversary stories with Detective Comics #598-600, “Blind Justice,” written by Sam Hamm (writer of such little indie films like Batman '89) and drawn by Denys Cowan.
What starts as a strange mystery of a brutish foe who somehow comes back to life after each deadly heist turns into a true test of Bruce Wayne’s morality as his past is investigated. How far is Bruce willing to go to protect his secrets?
You can find the links to the three issues down below:
And while we’ve been kind of going away from the discussion questions, probably mostly to give us a little less work, I thought of something a little different.
Within each of the three issues there are several “In Homage” writings from writers, directors, critics, everyone who’s life has been touched by the character of Batman and his world. Some of it is funny. Some of it is profound. Some are a little of both.
So my question is this: If you were asked to write a homage or dedication about Batman, what would you write?
This and any other thoughts, questions, and dubious admissions of painful truths can be said down below!
