The Weirdest Silver Age Batman Comic Panels

featured

For as much as I love the madness that was the comics of the 1990s, I cannot even imagine how incredible it must have been to be a comic-loving kid (or weird comic loving adult) in the 1950/60s period known as The Silver Age.

Within this gallery, I've put together only the smallest of fractions of some of the entertaining, out-of-context fun that Batman's 75 years of non-stop published stories have afforded us. Try your best to make sense of them.

Geof Darrow Unveils New ‘Shaolin Cowboy’ Cover And Upcoming Art Book ‘Lead Poisoning’

Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art of Geoff Darrow, Dark Horse Comics

If you've been suffering from a lack of Geof Darrow in your life, then folks, I have some very good news. In addition to the current Shaolin Cowboy mini series Who'll Stop The Reign, for which we have an exclusive look at the cover for issue #2 below, Dark Horse is publishing an oversized 128-page art book in July reprinting some of Darrow's best wort. But unlike most art books, there's a bit of a twist.

Rather than presenting readers with finished pieces, Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art Of Geof Darrow is stripping away inks and colors to show Darrow's intricate, incredibly detailed pencils, lifted from the work he's done at Dark Horse for over 20 years.

motorg33

Terry Moore continues to make some of the best and oddest comics found on store shelves --- odd especially in their merging of genres, such as in Motor Girl, which seems to stretch from PTSD sufferer's story to spy thriller; and best in that he really has an understanding of conveying character and moments.

Strip Panel Naked: Music Notation as Storytelling

musicspn

It's Music Week here at ComicsAlliance, and I wanted to take some time to dive into a very particular relationship between music and comics. Comics obviously are silent, so musical numbers are particularly tough to pull off. Getting the actual sound across, the lyricism, the melody - it's a challenge.

I want to take a look at three examples of music in comics that all use a particular approach with notation. By using the staves of sheet music, and placing notes on the page, these three comics manage to provide an extra depth to their storytelling.

Image Homages Image With 25th Anniversary Variant Covers

Walking Dead #164, art by Ryan Ottley

The fact that Image Comics is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year has made me feel so old that I'm worried about just deteriorating into a vaguely person-shaped pile of dust any second now, but there's one thing that's really helping to take the sting out of it: An amazing roster of variant covers where current image titles like Sex Criminals, The Wicked + the Divine, The Walking Dead, and Invincible homage the classic first issues from throughout the company's history, like, uh, Sex Criminals, The Wicked + the Divine, The Walking Dead, and Invincible.

Azrael Returns In ‘Detective Comics’ #950 [Preview]

Detective Comics #

Say what you will about his ill-fated tenure as Batman, but Jean-Paul Valley always finds his way back into continuity somehow. It was only a few years ago that the original Azrael --- well, the original comic book Azrael, anyway, not the Angel of Death with four heads and a thousand wings whose body is made of billions of eyes and tongues --- returned to the page in Batman and Robin Eternal. And in February, he's making a pretty grand return in the flagship title of DC's Rebirth Era as Detective Comics hits its milestone 950th issue.
