Comic Review: DC Showcase Presents Batman Volume 6

GalleryComics_1920x1080_20160120_SP_BM_V6_5693f086a6dbb1.81164692

I’ve long been a fan of DC Comics Showcase Presents line.  These inexpensive reprints of old comics in black and white allowed people like myself who enjoyed Silver Age comics to get a lot of issues without breaking the bank.  These stories were often written in an age where the average reader’s (and writer’s) knowledge of real world science may have been questionable, so pure imagination and outright silliness became the rule.  DC originally put out a volume every two weeks, often alternating between a well-known property (Superman, Green Lantern) and then a more obscure one (Metamorpho, Jonah Hex).

Sales must not have been too good, as over time volumes went on to come out once a month and then less.  I suspect that the sixth volume of Batman stories may be the last one.  I had ordered it from Amazon over a year ago when it finally showed up on my doorstep last February.  Having just finished it, I can review it.  And I will…after the cut.

ICYMI: Tom Recommends: Batman: No Man’s Land

Gabbing Geek Tom Recommends v2I was thinking recently about how maybe we here at Gabbing Geek should consider a regular recommendation to readers along the lines of similar storylines or genre or something, and the first thing I thought of was Batman.

Now, to be fair, the first thing I think of in many instances is Batman.  What should I have for lunch today?  Batman.  Where did I leave my keys?  Batman.  Why is Watson such a perv?  Batman.

Batman has been in many classic incarnations, and some of them have been very well known.  So, which Batman storyline from the comics am I recommending?  Well, I’m going with No Man’s Land.

Straight Outta Gotham

I don’t think this would have made $60 million at the box office this past weekend, but Jenny voiced Bane along with his partners in crime Joker, Two-Face and The Riddler have a rap message for Batman and Robin after the break.

(NSFW language.  The language is not sufficient for work.)
