Batman Europa #4

This book ends exactly how we all knew it would with Batman and The Joker exchanging bodily fluids.

Rating: No change.

For some reason, Bane was behind this entire virus thing. Why? I don't know! I'm not smart enough to figure out shit like that! Bane wanted to prove to Batman that he can't live without The Joker by making them run around Europe together for a week. It seems like a lot of work to teach Batman something he already knows.

I don't think Bane went far enough. It's obvious The Joker and Batman are engaged in an intimate relationship that nobody else can penetrate. If I were Bane, the cure would have been in their semen. It's only fitting and it's possible Azzarello and Casali wanted the reader to go there themselves since they obviously couldn't write that particular ending. It definitely reads like Batman and The Joker have to fuck each other to live. I guess that's why Bane sent them on their romantic tour through Europe. It was to get them in the mood. And how better to accomplish that then walking through Rome at night? That's fucktown, baby! Probably.

I guess they're also in Rome because Rome has history and is called The Eternal City and is half ruin and half modern architecture. So it's Batman and The Joker and their history together. Plus it's romantic.

Overall though, I didn't really see the need for this story. So Batman keeps The Joker alive because The Joker, in a crazy way, gives Batman a reason to live. Is he really that depressed still?! Didn't DC Fans already know this from that other Joker story? You know the one I'm talking about? You know? All of them?
