Morrison’s Batman vs Miller’s Batman

December 2nd, 2007 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Once again, Geoff Klock’s blog is the place to be, as there’s a great discussion of Morrison’s Batman vs Frank Miller’s Batman.

I really liked this comment, in fact:Voice of the Eagle said:

Gonna go out a limb and saw it off:

Between this and DKR, Miller not only has the definite Batman, but the definte Joker.Yeah, better than Moore’s.

It occurs to me that he switches the traditional readings of these two characers even as early as DKR- Batman is the laughing lunatic and Joker is the grim, “sane” one.

I can’t go into detail on it now, but I’ve got a foolproof way to make Misty Knight a Marvel heavy-hitter ala Luke Cage or Daredevil. I’ll save that for another post. I’m going to give those in the know a big hint on how I’d approach it, though.

Who want to battle the Don?
I’m James Bond in the Octagon with two razors
Bet y’all didn’t know I had a fake arm
I lost it, wild and raw before rap, I was gettin’ it on

  1. What does the fake arm thing mean? Does Ghost actually only have one arm and I’ve never noticed?

  2. No, but Misty Knight does.

  3. Oh.

    Oooooooooooooh! Yeah, that makes a lot of sense too.

  4. That was honestly the first time I’ve ever enjoyed an issue of ASBAR, and it had everything to do with Robin and Hal and nothing to do with Batman.
