Batman Contagion

by pure coincidence, I was just reading batman contagion from the mid 90s. I just found it funny how it kinda relates to our current crisis. A fast spreading virus that kills a lot of people. Weird huh. Anyone else thinks so?

It is weird, and now I want to go back and read that storyline.

I mean, it was much more a response to Ebola and terrorism in the late 90s than it is a response to globalism and SARS/COVID. But yes, there is a similar reaction you can get.

Yea I pulled the trade off my shelf last week. Some good stuff in there when Tim gets sick. Armand Krol sure was a heck of a mayor, huh?

Yeah, he was a real ass. Tough time for Jim Gordon because of him.

I just read legend of the Dark Knight (1989) & read an arc where Ra’s & Joker combined to create a virus for population control. Was thinking the same as u when I came across that.
