I’m the [expletive deleted] Batman!

I’ve been in a comic-book mood lately, and so have spent the last week or so working on a blog post about Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, the story that brilliantly redefined the Batman character and had a tremendous impact on the entire superhero-comics industry.
The Dark Knight Returns is an amazing piece of work, and the challenge has been simply trying to sufficiently convey its coolness within the confines of a blog post.
All was going well. My enthusiasm for everybody’s favorite caped vigilante had never been higher. The blog post in praise of DKR was nearing completion. And then… then I saw this [caution: strong language].
I think… I think I’m going to have to shelve that DKR post while I take some time to think about what all this means.

    Our filters won’t even let me access that link. I guess that’s a good thing…?

    It’s nothing too scandalous–presumably the bad language is setting off the filter. The linked article is an illustrated and pretty humorous review of Frank Miller’s “All Star Batman and Robin,” which apparently is not quite up to “Dark Knight Returns” standards of plot and dialogue…

    That was hilarious. My favorite caption: “Superman hates milk with the fiery intensity of a thousand suns.”

    That was indeed a good caption. But I must admit, I’m particularly fond of the part where Batman leaves a 12-year-old boy to forage for food in the Batcave.

    Hi Andy….I finally decided to enter the realm of blogdom. To think that this is what I’ve been missing! I thought the explanation for the milk carton was very enlightening. :0)
