the backstory starts out as always in part 1 of Shadow of the Bat’s God of Fear
yeah he likes scarin the birdies and studied and became a professor
in the next panel after accepting his position at GU
aRE YOU KIDDING ME CRANE YOU DID THAT IN FRONT OF THE GUY WHO JUST HIRED YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUE
stares at the camera like in the office
THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS COMIC OMG
THAT DUDE’S FACE
JON FREAKING STRAIGHTENING HIS TIE LIKE nah im cool now let’s go
"Now, are you gonna come quietly, or do I have to muss you up?"
from Detective Comics #571
professor, I can’t help but notice that you are peripherally obsessed with how handsome your rivals are.
I’m not saying that you’re gay. I’m just saying that you’re not straight.
What I like most about this is that here you have a guy clawing at the air and begging for his life as Crane ominously approaches through the fog of fear gas….
And then two panels later he pops up like some deranged jack-in-the-box, but just look at his face
That is not a face that inspires terror.
Update: Jon looks like a dead fish while unconscious.
So.. I was just reading up on some Batman comics, and eh.. Does anyone else agree that, out of context, this really looks like Batman is glomping Eddie?
