Why is The Flash called Detective Comics this month? And why does he look like Batman?
My first prediction about this comic book is that it's going to look much fancier than past issues. My second prediction is that Batman will crash through a window of some sort. My last prediction is that Alfred will say something sassy. Now that I've predicted shit, you have to keep reading to find out if I was right! And if I'm right about any of those things, you should probably have an alcoholic drink. If I'm right about all of those things, you should have lots of alcohol drinks and then do things in front of your web cam that you normally wouldn't do and then submit the video to this site.
First thing I notice is that the book smells good. Really good. Almost sexually good. Like the first time you catch the scent of a potential future partner's nether regions. Except more booky. Also, it fucking looks great. Just like I predicted!
Drink up, Sailors!
I want to amend my statement about the comic book fucking looking great. It's absolutely gorgeous. I would marry it.
Okay, no, I wouldn't marry it. I don't believe the government or religion has any reason trying to force itself on my relationship choices. But I would shack up with it and allow it to pay half the rent every month.
Currently Batman is capturing drug dealers and putting some little kids out of work as he "liberates" them from their jobs running drugs and messages. Also: Drink up, Sailors!
I think this counts as breaking through a window. How is it my fault that the window wasn't replaced from last time Batman broke through it?
Bruce has some million dollar meeting at a Motocross. He's meeting with Elena Aguila and her daughter. I don't know why. All I know is that they're taking up valuable pages that could house a scene with Alfred acting sassy! The business meeting is about a bunch of stuff I don't understand.
"Sorry, Miss Aguila, but I think you don't understand how gentrification works and how money gets made. Help people? For free?! I'm the Goddamned Bruce Wayne, motherfucker!"
Bruce agrees to help out Elena's Aguila Healthy Families Initiative even though he stands to make even more money by making the East End a pit of shallow material consumption. Even though he could probably afford a Batcopter and maybe a Bat Space Shuttle with the revenue, he realizes he needs to appear to be saving the city during the day while his alter ego saves the city at night. But this baffles some people who believe the only reason to do anything in life is to earn some cash.
Who named the local news show "Gotham Nighly"? I don't think that makes any sense!
You should probably drink up anyway, sailors. It's the best way to numb the pain.
Detective Comics #30 Rating: +3 Ranking. I suppose I'll give it one point for every thing the story contained that I predicted it would contain! That just means Buccellato and Manapul understand Batman! It also has some other good points like an interesting story and Bruce Wayne doing Bruce Wayne things which we don't really get to see as often as I'd like. Plus I should probably mention the art again. It's pretty good!
