Great Moments in Comics History: Detective Comics #42

Open your eyes, Picasso! Look at these cheek bones!


  1. The painter is making Bruce Wayne Asian.

  2. I am trying to imaging some kooky Golden-Age plot where Bruce is going to donate the painting to some museum where it will get stolen by the Riddler, and can be recovered by some type of advanced two-way radio embedded in the frame.

    Am I close?

  3. I wonder if Bruce subscribes to Blue Pants Weekly

  4. It doesn’t take much of a visual leap to think that Bruce is wearing a long tight skirt and a blouse.

  5. What’s so brave about having your portrait made? Does Bruce have a crippling fear of sitting still for a long time or something?

  6. Who the hell lettered this? It’s like reading hieroglyphics.

  7. This is a beautiful looking page.

  8. It will be hanging next to the portraits of Mordicai Wayne, Old Thomas Wayne, and the rest.

  9. Bill Hader would be awesome as that artist!

  10. I’m just imagining Bruce’s voice in the vein of Calculon from Futurama.

  11. I’m trying to figure out whether what the painter is doing is “Photo-realism” … :p
