AT4W: All-Star Batman and Robin #1-2

Suddenly Joel Schumacher’s Batman seems subdued and well-executed.

About Linkara

Atop the Fourth Wall is a show about bad comic books. Linkara finds the surreal and the stupid and breaks them down page by page. You'll know why they're idiotic and how they can be improved.

  1. Is there anything better to do with my free time than to look back at the original Miller Time? …Plenty, but I’m lazy at this moment.

    I still can’t believe I saw The Spirit in theatres TWICE. Thanks for the crossover review with Film Brain to remind myself why I should throw said movie out of my movie collection. But I still enjoy watching the RoboCop sequels.

    I’ve read, and own, All-Star Superman, mostly because of the then upcoming DC animated DTV film, and I also really enjoyed it.

    Even though the death of Dick’s parents was slightly altered in Batman Forever, they still fell to their deaths from a great height.

    15:10- Um, Frank, last I checked in Tim Burton’s Batman, Viki Vale LIKES bats. Just sayin’.

    16:55- Yeah, because THIS is what comic readers are interested in: SOFT CORE PORNOGRAPHY!

    20:36- Eric Theulen. Batman fan. Not believing that this thing was published.

    I also have no problem with Christian Bale’s Batman voice, cause I understand that he needed to make it NOT sound like Bruce Wayne’s, which is what George Clooney failed to do in Batman & Robin.

    I’ve read, and own, both Year One and The Dark Knight Returns, and I can think of no place in ASBAR where is fits perfectly in the continuity of those two pre-crazy Frank Miller stories.
