Name: Jonathan MacFarlane

Bio: I'm just a guy, standing in front of the internet, asking it to love him. Or at least tweet at him. Or glance at him. Anything, really. Please. I'm...I'm so al--wait, is this thing on? Is this broadcasting to the world? #$%&!



I’ve long felt that the Mad Hatter is Batman’s most under-appreciated villains. The guy is creepy as hell. A lot…

Gotham City Sirens continues to be my favorite book of the Bat-line, and continues to be better than it actually…

May 13, 2013 6:10 pm That's correct. But only because I've become blind to their existence.
May 13, 2013 12:19 pm As regards Gotham, specifically the types of Gothamites Bruce Wayne/Batman pals around with, not realizing, this is as much a part of Bat-history as the Batcave is. From the get-go, Bruce Wayne would be somewhere, usually some sort of social get-together, something would go down, Bruce would roll under a table and emerge from the other side as Batman and no one ever batted an eye. Batman had an obvious working relationship with Bruce Wayne's butler. Bruce is the only person in Gotham rich enough to afford to be Batman. Bruce gets a new ward just as Batman gets a new sidekick. Bruce is crippled and in a wheelchair when there's suddenly a new (crazy) Batman running around. Batman disappears when Bruce is in prison; Batman reappears, nutso angry, when Bruce breaks out of prison, yelling that he's been framed. Bruce admits publicly that he's been funding Batman for years, standing next to his sons. Batman's tied with Spider-Man for my favorite character, but this part of his stories is ridonkulous. The only unreasonably secret secret identity that should be more obvious to everyone around him is Superman's.
May 10, 2013 1:56 pm My favorite thing in comics is characters that armor up their arms & legs, then leave their guts & necks & heads exposed. "Stabbed through the belly, but at least I've got my kneecaps!"

April 15, 2013 2:15 pm Getting told that he's so scared because he was chin-deep in lava kinda ruined the mood of the page for me. WHAT IS THAT COSTUME MADE OF?
April 11, 2013 8:14 pm An airplane killed Banshee. By running him over mid-air. I guess technically the airplane was Vulcan's fault, and Banshee's powers not working properly was Mystique's?
April 10, 2013 3:46 pm Also, even if they weren't now putting it up to be purchased via iDevices, you could still purchase it on their website--along with the Marvel MAX titles, and almost all of the other things people were yelling about Apple not allowing yesterday--and download them onto your iThing through the app. Rabble rabble rabble!
