  1. There seems to be a Mazzucchelli resurgence lately in comics with artists like Weeks, Fornes, and Aja doing their best imitation. But I recently revisited Miller’s Year One and holy mother of god, no one can come close to the mastery and beauty of David Mazzucchelli. The dude is too good.

    It’s crazy to think that those 4 issues of Batman back in 1987 was enough to cement Mazzucchelli as a comic book legend that still has an impact on modern day comics.

    So yeah, Batman number sixty fucking seven. Ugh, yeah, I’m over the Knightmares story arc. So is the Joker “the roadrunner” and Batman “Wile E. Coyote? No, wait the dead man in the beginning of the story was named William Ernest Coyote. So does that make Batman “Porky Pig”? Nope, Porky Pig was the bar owner. Ahhh, I give up.

    Thank god we have Tomasi’s Detective Comics where there’s a normal Batman story that takes place in the real world and not all inside Batman’s head. Uh… wait…. uh…. fuck.
