"But I don’t fear them. There’s a big difference."
I miss when Bruce was allowed to smile.
I always liked the idea of Bruce making sure the Bat Kids could handle any number of weapons, including guns. I think that says a lot for how seriously he took safety.
Just a little apropos to agent Grayson and the potential use of guns as per that panel that’s going around. I really hope that gun he holds only stuns.
Hey folks, here’s a look at my process for the cover to Detective Comics 32. I had a lot of fun coloring this piece, specially since I got to play around with the logo. It’s placement was integral to the composition and selling the idea of Batman getting pulled under water. Enjoy!
The Bat-Man first appeared in Detective Comics #27 seventy-five years ago (March 30th, 1939).

This is the Justice League display I have on my computer desk in my room. This weekend I’m babysitting an eleven year old girl and an eight year old boy and when they saw this both of them immediately said, “Ooooh, I can name all of those characters!” And proceeded to name them all, and name them correctly. Well, save for the Atom who they thought was Ant-Man. The boy even said “Wow, that’s Red Tornado! I like Red Tornado! He’s cool!”
Needless to say, I was dumbfounded. But before I could ask them how the hell do they know who Red Tornado, Firestorm, Black Lightning, and Captain Atom are I remembered all of the characters here have been featured on Justice League Unlimited, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Young Justice, and DC Nation shorts.
I can’t say how happy this made me as a longtime comic reader. So now whenever I hear someone say “Oh people don’t know X character,” I will calmly ask them to go choke on a bag of dicks. Kids watch cartoons and to my surprise cartoons of today (both Marvel and DC) are starting to use obscure and lesser known characters. And that is a fantastic thing.
They even spent most of the afternoon reading trades off my bookshelf or on a Kindle. So I let the eleven year old read Batman: Year One and The Killing Joke. I’ve done Primus’ work this weekend.
