Still not as crazy as the original Batman, who broke peoples' necks with his feet.
2006-06-02 6:04:24 PM  

/I LOL'd...
//That is all.

It's Frank Miller. I think he's just farking with us.

And yeah Batman Year 100 RULEZ
2006-06-02 6:07:25 PM  
This series is definitely teh suck.
2006-06-02 6:10:35 PM  
Does Batman get in a MFF threesome with the new lesbian Batgirl?
2006-06-02 6:10:44 PM  
The new comics are--dare I say it--batshiat?
2006-06-02 6:11:28 PM  
How come Batman doesn't dance anymore?

/*does the batoosie*
2006-06-02 6:11:41 PM  
There's a certain point where he stops being a hero and turns into a caped lunatic. I think it's pretty obvious where that is.

Are the new comics as stupid and insane as people reading funny books and taking them this goddamned seriously?

I'd argue not.
2006-06-02 6:14:14 PM  
You know what's interesting All Star Superman is perhaps the best Superman comic series ever made. We have Superman the way he's meant to be, instead of a gimped/whiny/confused "former" Superhero like they often portray him in his regular series.
It's such a shame that All Star Batman ended up being so bad...

Wow...Frank Miller's gone off the deep end.
2006-06-02 6:17:34 PM  
I'm the goddamn Batman.
2006-06-02 6:18:39 PM  
artman, that is beautiful.

/Batman rules.
2006-06-02 6:18:39 PM  
Wow, Miller really phoned that series in. He must be too busy writing new Sin City stories to give two shiats.

Doesn't DC READ this stuff before penciling anymore?

//huge geek, I admit it
2006-06-02 6:18:41 PM  
That was the funniest thing I've read all day. Thanks for the Friday treat, Submitter.

This comic is awesome for all the wrong reasons.
2006-06-02 6:20:11 PM  

I'm not going to no one's taking them too seriously. It's just that if a story sucks a story sucks. And this story sucks. It's more disappointing because the author is known for his good writing.

These might be bad analogies, but it'd be like if Led Zeppelin released an album today of pop songs. A die hard Zep fan would flip shiat.
2006-06-02 6:21:03 PM  
These might be bad analogies
I had another analogy, I promise. No, really.
2006-06-02 6:21:17 PM  
Yeah, All-Star Batman is way farked up.

The regular DC Comics aren't doing to hot either. They've farked with most of my favorite characters. Batgirl, Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, Jade, Flash, Young Justice...

/Secret Society of Supervillains is cool though.

It seems like he's taking everything everyones ever said about batman being a crazed loner who keeps a young boy in a cave to the extreme. I mean, i like Batman, but he does have issues...
2006-06-02 6:21:43 PM  
After recovering from a sever comic addiction 4 years ago, I am now going to brave the comic store again, just to pick this up. It's completely awesome.
2006-06-02 6:22:00 PM  
"What, are you DENSE? Are you RETARDED or something? Who the hell do you THINK I am? I'm the Goddam Batman."

Yow. That is some pretty godawful dialogue.
2006-06-02 6:22:53 PM  
CNichols - Precisely why I ditched DC and moved to Marvel. It's a shame that there aren't more Thanos stories around.

ive never followed the batman comics. all i know are the more recent movies, but reading this article has me lol'ing
2006-06-02 6:25:49 PM  
I don't know if I've ever thought of Frank Miller as a great writer, but this makes him looks plain shiatty.
2006-06-02 6:26:25 PM  

We have Superman the way he's meant to be, instead of a gimped/whiny/confused "former" Superhero like they often portray him in his regular series.

Personally, I don't expect fictional characters to have static personalities, personalities that are 'meant to be' for the character. There are only interpretations of characters which can only be accepted or rejected by individual tastes.

I dunno, but the new Joker is just farkin scary!
2006-06-02 6:28:27 PM  
It's at this moment, running across the moonlit ocean hefting an
automobile over his head, that Superman realizes he's a farking idiot.

2006-06-02 6:28:48 PM  
Anyone read that marvel zombie comics where all the marvel superheroes turned to zombies except magneto, than the silver surfer shows up and than shiat explodes ...

/It was like wtf?! but man was it sweet.
2006-06-02 6:30:42 PM  
from the article: my rough estimate, that means that Batman and Dick have been on the way to the Batcave for, oh, about FIVE F**KING WEEKS now.

i spit out my drink laughing as i read to that part
2006-06-02 6:31:06 PM  
All I have to say is, Frank WTF??!!!...
2006-06-02 6:31:59 PM  
That article has to be one of the funniest things I have ever read. I had to close the door to my office I was laughing so much!!

...that Superman realizes he's a farking idiot.

That was priceless.
2006-06-02 6:32:04 PM  
MAN that was funny.
2006-06-02 6:34:26 PM  
I dont think he liked it

call it a hunch
2006-06-02 6:35:30 PM  
DK2 was pretty crappy too.
Elektra:Assassin, Ronin, DK1, Daredevil, & BM Year One = the good Frank books.
2006-06-02 6:36:19 PM  
why is stuperman running over the ocean ?

isn't one of his main attractions his ability to fly ?

or is Frank still trying to string out the Superman = Jesus thing ?
2006-06-02 6:38:55 PM  
why is stuperman running over the ocean ?

Apparently in the olden times he couldn't fly (hence able to "leap" tall bulidings, not fly over them). But I love that he just grabbed the dude's car, with the guy in it, and ran across the ocean. Sheesh.
2006-06-02 6:39:05 PM  
All Star = crappy.

One Year Later stuff = Awesome.

Year 100 = Haven't read it yet.
