“Get that kid!”
“You’ve got to get me first!”
“Well, yeah, that’s… that’s what we just said. Didn’t you — HURGH”
More Bob Kane art weirdness. Does Batman’s left pectoral muscle extend all the way into his left deltoid?
Okay, what? Batman’s saying crims use guns because they’re cowards? And then he uses this as a reason for kids to fight them? There’s a break in logic here somewhere… oh, and he’s also breaking the fourth wall, which I don’t believe he’s done before. So, so weird.
Robin is suspicious. Has puberty kicked in for him at this stage? There’s really no way to be sure. But I will say that if he’s prepubescent, all this crime fighting is doubtless stunting his growth.
Hey, here’s a thing. This cop is killed by the Joker by means of a DART hidden in the phone’s earpiece, activated by the Joker on the other end shouting “JOKER”.
SURELY there are easier ways to kill someone, yeah? Did kids reading this think this was scary or cool? I’m no historian, but my instinct is: FUGYEAH.
Is the Joker just kind of trailing off here? Having a bit of a think about his lifestyle choices maybe? Pining for the fjords?
Without knowing it, Robin is mimicking the ‘leap of faith’ we’d see decades later in the Matrix. MAN, this kid is ON POINT.
Not true, Robin! You’ll very shortly catch your death! BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh man *wiping tears away* it’s so good. THIS is why I have a website.
I wonder if this kind of quippery translated into kids doing it in real life. But, like, bullies on the playground. Which led to the victims being afraid of puns and wordplay the entire rest of their lives, becoming chartered accountants and living lives of quiet desperation.
DAMN YOU BATMAN
CLIFFHANGER… and the moment is broken a half-second later with this ridiculous “Robin’s Regulars” bit. IT’S ABOUT TIMING, YOU GUYS
Cut out and frame these grinning devils. DO IT OR THEY’LL HURT MY FAMILY
And that’s it for Batman and Robin… FOR NOW. Join us on Wednesday for a brand-new comic!
