For our final image this week, here is another series of panels from the Mad Hatter story. Bruce remembers throughout the plot of the night his parents were killed, but mainly that before the evening, his mother had read him "Alice in Wonderland" on that particular rainy day. The entire story he is in emotional freefall whilst pursuing the Hatter. A truly chilling story, and also a heart-warming one, by the end. Cheers, Bat-fans.

For our next image, we have a splash page of Batman chasing Jervis Tetch, the Mad Hatter on top of a train car. I'm always impressed by any artist that can show movement like this in one panel. Jim Lee did it several times throughout the Hush series, and Tim Sale never fails to impress with his own ability at this. Just more proof that comics are simply films on page.

Getting into the character of Batman must seem like a tall order these days, for one, where does one start? Do you go for the animated series or for the video games or worse yet do you even dare to go near the comics, with it’s near seventy-five year history and dense continuity. While the initiated would recommend various stories that range from The Long Halloween to The Killing Joke, if I was asked by a newbie to the character, I would recommend “The Beginning and My…

Throughout the story, Batman encounters several members of Gotham’s assorted Rogues’ gallery. Pictured here are Solomon Grundy, the Joker, the Mad Hatter, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harvey Two Face, and the Scarecrow. Not pictured are Calendar Man, and the Riddler. Each play a unique and interesting part in the story, and are ultimately acting in response to the holiday killings in some way or other. Except for Catwoman, whose involvement does revolve around Carmine Falcone (which is explored more in another book by both Loeb and Sale). My favorite moment with a Rogue…

Racing to the British batmobile with Robin and Alfred, the boy wonder questions where they are off to. The Dark Knight explains that during their recent battle with the Hatter and his hovercraft he noticed that Big Ben (the giant…

You probably have noticed that we kicked off a couple of new episodes of The Batman Universe Villain Wall over the last couple of months. We promised awhile back that we would show off where all of the villains we ranked are on a chart as well as the villains that automatically were placed. So here it is, the current TBU Villain Wall.
