On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the publication of the first Batman story
current location: Park Row, Gotham
current mood: hopeful
current song: "Tom Traubert's Blues (Four Sheets to the Wind in Copenhagen)", Tom Waits
I remember nellorat once saying words to the effect of, “Christianity would be much better if it focused on the image of La Pietà instead of obsessing on the Crucifixion.”
I feel the same way about “There Is No Hope in Crime Alley” vis-à-vis The Dark Knight Returns.
Happy Batman day, Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff, Denny O’Neil and Dick Giordano, for all we, the superstitious and cowardly lot.
(This is not the most pretentious thing I have ever written about comics.)
