- Jason is hanging out at World of Bats this week, too. Batman needed a little help taking down Deacon Blackfire in The Cult, and the best Robin ever was willing to oblige!
These issues coincide with Crisis on Infinite Earths. Jason appears in issues 9-12.
Jason also appears in the final story of Blue Devil #19. It turns out that Jay has a pen pal!
In addition to skipping a story recently covered by World of Bats (see below), we will also skip Batman #392 and Detective Comics #559 because they leave out Jason Todd and act as standalone stories. The important thing to know is that Catwoman is once again working with Batman.
Mirror Master was introduced in Flash #105, and as a member of the Injustice Gang, he’d faced off against the JLA. Captain Boomerang was introduced in Flash #117, and he’d previously faced off against the Dark Knight in Batman #322.
Bruce poses as gangster Matches Malone, which he has done on occasion ever since the death of the real Malone in Batman #242.
"But where’s his pink unicorn?!"
Here’s our schedule: 2020-02-03T06:00:00Z → 2020-02-16T06:00:00Z
Week 8 Reading (Nine Issues)
Note: the crossover issues with Crisis on Infinite Earths were very recently covered by World of Bats, so a link will be provided to that discussion to avoid redundancy.
I. Bullock & Robin
II. Dark Rider
IV. Film Freak, Pt. 1 (To Be Continued Next Week)
- Doug Moench loves teaming up Jason Todd with Harvey Bullock. Do you enjoy this dynamic?
- How do you feel about the appearance of Mirror Master and Captain Boomerang? What other non-Batman rogues do you want Jay and Silent Bruce to face?
- From Darkwolf (in last week’s issues) to Dark Rider, we’ve been seeing an increase in international terrorists lately. Do you like these kinds of stories, or are you a “local villains only” person?
- How do you feel about the addition of Catwoman to the team? Do you think she meshes well with a Robin (in this story or others like it)?
- Speaking of superhero partners who also happen to be legacy characters, Black Canary has a new costume and a new outlook. Do you see any parallels between Dinah and Jason?
"Alfred, he’s been doing this ever since he left the Fortress of Solitude."
Poll Question: Who makes the best dynamic duo?
- Batman & Robin
- Batman & Catwoman
- Bullock & Robin
- Catwoman & Robin
- Arrow & Canary
If you listen closely, you can hear the fourth wall breaking!
And see the long-awaited debut of the Damian Wayne side of our club right here: “Father. I imagined you taller.”
