I’ve been meaning to finish a short story that has been sitting cold in my hard drive for a few months now, but for some reason I could never get around to doing it. Most probably that reason is that I’ve kept on reading digital comic books on the side, and as soon as I go back to the story my thread of thought has gone poof.
And it’s not like I have not been reading a lot of comic books the last few days either. In my internet-less and cable-tv-less home the past week I’ve done nothing but read the funny books. I’ve tried to catch up on my late 80’s-early 90’s Batman, Catwoman, Detective Comics, and Birds of Prey, because I still can’t read… bleeech, the New 52.
There are a lot of oddities in old comic books, but one in particular almost made me snort the Coke I’ve been drinking at the time. This one is from a late 80’s issue by Moench.
HUH?! AHAHAHAHAHHAH! Not to be malisyoso, but come on.
To Dick Grayson’s defense this is not Dick Grayson. This is Jayson Todd, the 2nd Robin who took the mantle after Dick Grayson had a falling out with Bruce and decided to become Nightwing. Jayson Todd died horribly in A Death In The Family and was later resurrected in 2005’s fantastic Under The Hood.
