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.
