Sunday Soliloquy

Filed under: batman, sunday soliloquy — Tom Bondurant @ 10:28 pm
This was going to be my Friday Night Fights entry, and I guess it would fit the current theme. After all, Batman’s been sucka-punched by love…!

The best part of this page isn’t the ghostly images of Bruce and Silver, or the cool efficiency with which Batman takes out his frustrations. No, for me it’s that closeup of one almost-wild eye in panel 3. You see that look in Batman’s eyes and you know someone’s getting a beating.

[From “The Coming Of … Clayface III!” in Detective Comics #478, July-August 1978. Written by Len Wein, pencilled by Marshall Rogers, inked by Dick Giordano, lettered by Ben Oda. Recolored by Rogers for this reprint.]



  1. Who’s that chastising Bats in the final panel?

  2. Police — they weren’t as quick to get to the crime scene as Batman was.
