The 75 best Batman comic book covers, according to the Comic Book Resources site. A lot of great picks, to be sure, and from every era. Batman was never better than when he was in those "funny books."

I'm looking forward to the big comic con here in Detroit this year. Guest artists include Jose Louis Garcia-Lopez, Arvell Jones, Kevin Maguire and Frank Brunner.

In the earliest days of the Nickelodeon cable channel, "Video Comics" was one of the programs I remember being hooked on. This was circa 1980. Thankfully, someone on YouTube has posted one of the programs. This one is Swamp Thing but I also remember them doing Adam Strange, as well:

Here's the program promo. Probably the first time I ever heard "Ride of the Valkyries":

I've droned on about this before, but I feel like doing it again. smile

My brief return to regular comic reading began in 1997, where I caught the excellent run of Batman by Doug Moench, Kelley Jones, and John Beatty. I loved the "ugly", Expressionist look of the art and I agreed wholeheartedly with a letterhack who predicted that their run would be remembered in the same breath as Len Wein-Bernie Wrightson's Swamp Thing. It may never reach those heights, but the Moench-Jones-Beatty Batman stands tall in my memory. I think it's a "Love it or Hate it" proposition, however.

Read about it here:

Now it's being reprinted in this fine hardcover. Here's vol. 1:

Sad news to report on the Batman artist front, as Norm Breyfogle has suffered a stroke.

A few months ago I had picked up his entire run on Detective Comics, as I enjoyed those books which were published right around the time I finished high school. It's an unheralded run but one that has gotten some overdue attention in recent years.

Norm also was the artist on Malibu Comic's Prime.
