Drunk Comic Book History: The Robins
Last week, I saw one of the best things that I have ever seen on the internet. And mind you, I’m say this as an Internet Professional who is provided with an ever-changing kaleidoscope of amusements from the internet each day, like manna falling from a great series of tubes in the sky. This most wonderful thing is called Drunk History, and it is essentially a video series where they get historians very, very drunk — like falling down and puking drunk — have them narrate the stories of notable figures like Alexander Hamilton, and then reenact those half-slurred tales with actors like Jack Black and Michael Cera. It is, as discussed, amazing.
I’ve been trying to figure out a way to work this into ComicsAlliance — Michael Cera stars in the upcoming “Scott Pilgrim” flick, while another concerns Nikola Tesla, a major character in Matt Fractions “Five Fists of Science” — but thanks to a tip from CA reader Jess Kaiser, I’ve got an even more on-topic way to hit these videos. Because someone out there decided to make Drunk Comic Book History about on the many incarnations of Batman’s sidekick, Robin.
Check it out after the jump — along with every single Drunk History video that I could find. Constant swearing unsurprisingly follows.
