Because nobody demanded it, a new blog series! In this new series, I shall cover (hyuk! hyuk!) awesome comic book covers just because. This is exactly the same kind of dickery I pulled in Face Rockery with the blog series Face-Rocking Covers. So yeah, this is basically me making fun of comic book covers. High five?
For this inaugural Cover Carnival entry, we’ll be looking at a few covers of Batman. Unless you were living under a stupid rock (I mean, who does that? Really.) for the last year, you’ll understand why I find Batman covers to be appropriate for this initial offering. The Dark Knight spelunked (New word!) into theaters last week and Batman is understandably in everybody’s consciousness right now. This is how I’m celebrating this most awesome of awesome movies.
The Bat-Signal. ON THE MOON. And it’s daylight where the signal is coming from. Think about that for a moment, will you?
Most people believe that Batman doesn’t use guns to fight crime. They think the Caped Crusader doesn’t like firing them suckers. Well, they’re wrong! Look at that Bat-Smile! He enjoys this kind of shit!
Batman. Riding a giant eagle. With Robin kneeling on his shoulders. That would’ve definitely made people buy loads of war bonds and stamps. I mean, how can they not?
That’s right, Jungle Batman. Just hang there while Jungle Robin is about to get mauled by a hungry looking panther. Ass.
Check out the Boy Wonder having a great time on the pole. Yeahhh. It looks like he’s really enjoying it. Work it, Boy Stripper. Work it!
OMFG BATMAN, HELP POOR ROBIN! HE’S PLUNGING TO HIS CERTAIN DEATH! THROW HIM A ROPE OR SOMETHING! GOOD GOD!
“The Adventures of Alfred”. Huh. Do I want to know what that is all about? It looks like he’s… dancing. Seductively. Batman and Robin are seemingly pimping him out.
We’re done here.
