So another Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode has aired. Wait. Did it? No, you are not looking at your screen and thinking you missed it. Actually, if you live in the UK, a frequent internet user, or went to San Diego Comic Con, you probably have already saw the episode. But nonetheless, the episode officially airs tonight at 7:30 PM EST. Warner Bros. sent us over a clean version of the episode to review ahead of time so that we could get you hyped about it. We mentioned during the podcast after SDCC that the episode was…

Ok Bat-fans, you can breathe a sigh of relief. The awfulness that has been Judd Winick and Mark Bagley's run on Batman has finally come to end…..at least for now. Tony Daniel returns next issue. And while he is a better artist than a writer, the change should prove to be positive.
Batman #691 wraps up the Long Shadows arc in the same muddled mediocrity as it began. Without going into too much detail: let's just say that Dick convinces Two-Face that he is the original Batman; Dick again realizes that…

When we last left our masked crusaders they were careening out of control and heading for a crash landing in a cemetery at the outskirts of Gotham city.

Some e-mails we got convinced us to extend "Silver Age Batgirl-scans of the day" another week. So here is something that wouldn’t fly in a comic today. They sure didn’t know how to write women back then. This originally appeared in Detective Comics issue 371.
