Bruce Wayne has batwing-shaped eyebrows?




I'm currently reading (and disliking) Batman Incorporated. In issue #6, Bruce Wayne is a zealot with ridiculous Batman logo-shaped eyebrows.

  1. Oh I'm all for Bat-logo eyebrows. Haven't read the comic though.

  2. I may have to look for this. Gaah! haven't got the time for my comic fix for so long.

  3. I think the Bat logo eyebrows actually started in the Batman animated series redesign. http://cdn.static.ovimg.com/episode/3498891.jpg

  4. I like the idea of Batman being actually happy, more of a swashbuckler than the brooding grouch he's been since Frank Miller got his hands on Batman a quarter century ago.

    Also, bat-eyebrows really hit an all time high with the Superman/Batman series, even Superman had them: http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg95/dioszine/SupermanBatman1.jpg

    Oh, and skip the issue of Batman Inc where he saves the internet. I actually like the series and I still think that issue was one of the worst comics I've ever read.

    1. I bought all the 99 cent issues from comixology, so I guess I can look forward to that one

  6. I know you're typically not into "serious" comic books, but the first issue of Brian Wood's THE MASSIVE is great. I recommend it highly. Probably can't get it for 99 cents yet though.

    1. I like serious, I don't like depressing.

      I'm actually waiting to read Northlanders b/c I'm a big fan of Staples.

  7. I don't understand the last issue in that arc at all, until i remember the infamous last episode of the prisoner. Morrison is a dirty bastard writing a story that doesn't click unless you get the reference, it's like writing an homage to Lost.
