And I Think We Can All Agree That He Had It Coming

Remember that night? The night Batman was killed? And everybody was laughing; and slapping one another on the back; and giving out free beer, even to the kids; and putting on impromptu accordion concerts; and making sloppy, care-free love right on the streets of Gotham, in amongst the looting; and also this one guy said that his friend said that his girlfriend's brother told him he had seen some fat stoner take a whiz right on the bat-signal and it electrocuted the bastard, and everybody went "HELL YEAH MOTHERFUCKER!" and started shooting their illegal machine guns into the air?

Remember that?

And okay, so the next day freakin' Hawkman moves in and turns the whole damn town into an alien gulag, but it was so worth it because Batman the Practical Joking, Solid Gold Table Having, Hamburger Devouring Son of a Bitch was DEAD.

These two panels are so rich, I don't know where to focus...Alfred's alien shaped head ( or is it Hector Hammonds moonlighting as a butler? ), Bruce smiling, Bruce smiling cause he's eating a burger, Bruce introducing "where's the beef" years before the actual ad campaing...
The Night Bats dies is small potatoes compared to all THAT!

I thought the Leader had snuck in during thta Hulk crossover, and Bats hasn't noticed yet.

I hereby vow to try to work "medium rare aroma" into at least one conversation every day.

Something like "Hey honey I'm home. Mmmm, I love your new perfume, that medium rare aroma is pretty sexy."

I was going to comment on Alfred's Hector Hammondness, but I was beaten to the punch.

nice to see Bats love of meat, I guess Alfred knows best

Hey, who says that that's a burger? I know *I* tend to forego the old steak knife after tricking somebody with a hyphenated last name, especially a doctor (Dr. Panson-Fyre, I'm looking at you).

Stephen Rader said...

So funny. Especially after all those damn "Where Were You When Martian Manhunter Died?" ads. Oy...

I remember that day. We all got really drunk, and a buddy of mine, who used to work for the Joker, told us about this disused hideout. We went there and stole some stuff, and we ended up smile-gassing an orphanage. TOTALLY got away with it, too! 'Cos Batman was dead.

Gustavo: It is an intricate tapestry, isn't it?

Kon-El: HAW! I give you bonus points for bringing the Batman/Hulk crossover into it!

Ryan: You won't regret it, I guarantee.

Jon: I think you're doing it wrong. Unless your lady-love is fond of dabbing "A1" behind her ears.

Wonder Man: Yup! The funny thing about Wayne's place is, he has all these hot dog buns but no hot dogs...

Johnathan: I say it's a burger! DON'T QUESTION ME!

Stephen: (Yay! Stephen!) They had ads like that for Martian Manhunter? That's just... sad.

Dean: RAWK ON! WOO! *high-fives you*
