I'm Not a Fan, But... Batman: Cacophony (2008)

Uh, yeah. Hi. Me again. You know how I always warn you that I'm not a Batman fan, but here's my review of a certain story? That goes double for this one. I don't even really know where to start. In 2008, Kevin Smith and Walt Flanigan put together Batman: Cacophony. It was a very short 3 issue miniseries but it got lots of fanfare (you may recall an obscure little film called The Dark Knight was also released that year). When a co-worker let me borrow his copy of it this weekend, I knew I had to review it for the site.

Batgirl Contest!

It's not from us, it's from our good friend over at DC Women Kicking Ass! On one of our favorite Tumblr blogs focusing on DC Women and how they kick ass, they are holding an exclusive and awesome Batgirl contest to celebrate their first year anniversary, as well as the release Batgirl: The Flood! But let's move on to what you get and what you have to do.

I'm Not a Fan, But... Batman #251 (1973)

Greetings, Good Gothamites! It is I, Frank of the non-Bat Believers. Here I am once again to give a non-fan's perspective and desecrate the name of Caped Crusader whose image is printed all over those flanel pajamas you're wearing! (Very becoming, by the way.) In case you missed it, last time I talked about my introduction to Batman with the 1966 Adam West feature film. This time around, I've been given an assignment by the man with the bearded FAC3: Batman #251 a.k.a. The Joker's Five Way Revenge! It's a classic tale of the Joker's merciless ways and Batman's perseverance in chasing him down.
