    This is just hysterically funny. Do yourself a favor, read the whole
    thing, including the picture captions.


    Sample: "It's at this moment, running across the moonlit ocean hefting
    an automobile over his head, that Superman realizes he's a f******
    idiot."

    Ugh. Funny and godawful at the same time. And I thought the Adam West series made the character seem silly! What goes through Miller's mind??

    Well, Joe, I was going to ask if you recommend JMS's comics work, but I guess you aren't reading it.

    That's way better than Michael Keaton's "I'm Batman". [​IMG]

    His rant was pretty funny. Miller definitely didn't bring his A-game to this particular series.

    I guess you mustn't watch movies then either. Right?

    Or the internet dub of the 90's X-Men cartoon: "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!"

    Or Vinnie Jones in X3 as the Juggernaut: "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!"

    For future installments, I figure I'll pick up All-Star Batman and Robin in the dollar bins soon enough. I also couldn't justify buying it on release week anymore after it became obvious that the writing was going to just be horrendously bad, and not improve at all. But there are good books being published, you just gotta find them.

    The Superman titles aren't awful these days. All-Star Superman is the bomb.

    AS B&R is terrible beyond belief. It's like watching a poor imitator try and do a Miller Batman.

    My God! And I thought the last Astérix was bad! But this Michael Jackson-like Batman takes the cake! [​IMG]

    There are some great comics being written today, but yes, All-Stars Batman & Robin isn't one of them. All-Stars Superman is okay, but not fantastic. I hope DC figures out what they're doing with this line, or just cancels it.
