Browsing through our stack of comics this week, the ComicsAlliance staff ran across this exchange between Bruce Wayne and a suspiciously Harley Quinnish Silver St. Cloud from “Batman: The Widening Gyre” #4, written by “film”-maker Kevin Smith with art by Walter Flanagan and Art Thibert:

Not for nothin’, Kevin, but when you’ve got a line in your comics about how great writing comes from just writing down things that happen to you and your friends for several years, we know you’re not talking about Batman anymore. But to his credit, it could’ve been worse, as we discovered when our own Chris Sims unearthed several unpublished early drafts of this scene!
