    an awesome looking batman in that first panel. and so what if bats is pukeing a little…at least he’s (involuntarily?) flipping off guy while punching him in the face.

    Well, for me anything that Kevin Smith write is non canon so…who cares?

    What the deuce, man? I was thinking about buying that in trade…No more. I like some of Kevin Smith’s work, but not this drivel.

    Jason – I was trying to make him doing one of those Bugs Bunny-holding in the puke with your index finger-moves.

    And everyone, Jason is a great artist, so go check out his blog.

    Kevin Smith REALLY should’ve quit with “Guardian Devil” while he was ahead, huh…this isn’t even jumping the shark; this is like, jumping the shark, tripping on its fin midflight, then skipping across the ocean on your chin like a well-flung pebble.

    @Jordjevic: Ooh wait – it should go, “And right when Bane drove his knee into my back…”

    so…. wouldn’t training your body to peak physical condition also, you know, give you control over your bodily functions?

    “Worse off for it”?

    I’d say anything that knocks Batman (a character with no real powers aside from “reads the script beforehand and thus looks clever”) down a few pegs is a solid plus in my book.

    @ chris haley: yeah i knew EXACTLY what you were going for with batman’s look in that last panel as i am a huge old school WB looney toons fan (see my hellbunny and the fudd art on my blog for proof. SHAMELESS PLUG!) but that pose always looks like an involuntary bird flip to me especially with characters with only 4 fingers!

    Quiff should at the very least be mentioned in the next strip

    No premature ejaculation joke? I’m oddly disappointed.

    @Jordjevic – Also, I have to commend you for making a comment that was able to get Curt to chime in.

    Cody – Is that something you do when you’re scared?

    Chris – I think I’ve shared too much.

    Chris, this is probably the best-drawn Batman strip you guys have done. I especially dig the differences between the Morrison/Porter panel and the JLI one.

    Also, fuck Kevin Smith.

    The kind of people who seriously care about this are the kind of nerds that nerds look down upon.
