It Turns Out that I am NOT the Man!

Sorry, people, but I've been absent for a few days due to GODDAMNED Computer problems! Whew! I am therefore issuing a new ruling in my house, that Nobody touches this fershlugginer computer except to check their e-mail, except ME!!!!! I bought it, I set it up, I get it repaired, and certain teenagers who shall go unnamed then start cruising for porn or gaming sites, and fill it full of viruses and stuff.

So...did anything exciting happen while I was gone? I went to the comic book store yesturday, and all that they had, was the new Batman: Odyssey, and a different Batman book that reprinted some lost stories or something. Oh, and the book about Kevin Maguire that I had ordered. No new Brightest Day, no new JLI, no NOTHING! I don't know if my store got shorted, or if that is all that there was.

I do have to say that I'm enjoying the heck out of Neal Adam's Batman book though. It's absolutely terrible, the plot has Batman being a nervous Nellie, and going emo all over the place, making stupid mistakes, and in general NOT behaving like an omnipotent creature of the Night. Frankly, I'm laughing myself sick. It's just so much fun watching Bats run around making a flaming ass of himself, that I'm just delighted. I would imagine that the hardcore Batman fans are simply horrified. Oh, and the art is pretty too.

Man, I've got to get back into the swing of things, and finish reloading all my music and favorite sites, and all that important stuff.

I also like the concept of hardcore Batman fans being horrified. I've been known to enjoy Batman & Robin, I mean everything ever put out with that name.

I was wondering what happened to you! Darn computer.

There's a book about Kevin Maguire? Is it the "Modern Masters" series?

Nothing too exciting is going on in the comics world, it seems. I'm glad you're enjoying the Neal Adams book in all its so-bad-its-good glory. I didn't think to buy it, but now it seems tempting. Or is that going to reinforce DC putting out shoddy material?

Just what IS a hardcore Batman fan? The ones who think Batman is omnipotent are NOT hardcore Batman fans, in my opinion.

HOWEVER, there have been so many incarnations of Batman, I'd have to say that a TRUE hardcore Batman fan is one who knows about and accepts ALL of the incarnations -- including Neal Adams' current efforts.

Liss, it IS the Modern Masters book, and it's quite nice. It's amazing how good his stuff was even at the beginning.

I don't know about hardcore Batfans, except that they seem to get awfully cranky whenever Bats isn't being portrayed as the Be-All and End-All of Everything. I don't care if he IS the World's Greatest Detective...nobody is that good. Besides, I rather like the idea of Ralph, Ted and Barry being pretty damned good detectives too.

But having Neal Adams portray him having hissy fits is simply delightful.

Neal Adam's batman book sounds wonderful! I like anything that'll mock ol' Btasy,
