I may have just named a color....

If I can figure out how to trackback. I've just been told I must ping. Good thing I have the machine that does that. So that this doesn't slip into the dreaded morning pages random type post, I'll simply say that it's good to be home, after five days away. Where was I? Same place Carmen was, or is, or whatever....

I've always maintained that how Batman is perceived in the DCU is relevant to how he styles himself.  In the early days, his color scheme was black and grey, but as the years progressed, he got progressively more into it, until he's colored and drawn how you see him today. He'll always be Batman, AND more importantly, he'll always be Bruce Wayne.

Remember when superheroes wore their tights under their clothes? Me neither :) I met a costumer at Con, who agreed with me on several points. Maybe I'll ask her if it's practical to return to that trend.

So, where were we? You know where I am. Or by now, you should. Just attended crashed a party wherein I met some really cool people, and that may change the direction of whom this is a job for....

In any case, over the next few days, I'll give my random rants on what took place while I was otherwise involved with what has become hashtagged #SDCC, or, for the right-handed people, Comic Con International, 2010 edition. You can probably find most of the same opinions elsewhere, however, you won't get my unique take. Hilights include, an interview with @ActionFlickChick herself, Katrina Hill.

Or, is it? :)

Why is, This a Job For???

Some might wonder what the title of this blog means, and I'm here to tell you, that it harkens back to the days of radio, when Bud Collyer, doing the voice of Clark Kent, had to let his listening audience that he was in fact taking off the glasses, and about to fight for truth, justice, and the American way. As Superman. The phrase even made it to the TV version starring George Reeves, and the any of several incarnations of the animated adventures of Superman less than a decade later. I'm sure you could probably find it in a current issue, if J. Michael Stracynszki remembers his history.
Of course, Superman can't be everywhere at once, and if you've been paying attention, Batman is my favorite Comic Book Character of all time, and that's not going to change anytime soon. So, the reality of what I'll focus on here is all things Batman, when I'm not dealing with the rest of my life that takes up well, the rest of my life. I may talk about other things, however, there will be a relationship to at least comics in general, and most likely, Batman specifically. Feel free to let me know how I'm doing, as I hope to expand with reviews of the current Bat titles I read, if nothing else.
