Welcome to the Playpen, our space for ferrety banter and whimsical snippets of things that aren't quite long enough for articles (although they might be) but that caught your eye anyway.
Great, now I can't get the image of Batman removing a batplug from his utility belt out of my head.
Um...my post keeps disappearing and reappearing.
This happened to me in the comments. I had to clear my browser history, and then it was fine.
Um...my post keeps disappearing and reappearing. Hence my doublepost. But now it's happening with both of them..
Yeah, one of the ferrets is in the wrong wheel, Rami is fixing it. I think things are posting but there's a slight delay in them showing up.
I'd say Miller thought the ears looked a bit too costume-ish but drew them ever so slightly on the cowl because without them Batman looks kind of buttpluggy.
ARRRGH SO WRONG.
because without them Batman looks kind of buttpluggy.
I think that's why I find something off about the Red Robin costume. It looks weird with no ears....
I worked at a comic store when volume 1 of Fantastic 4 was approaching issue 300. Batman's ears comes up every once in a while though not to the extent of Power Girl's tuts (I'm using a 'u' to denote volume, the general focus of that sexist discussion.) I'd say Miller thought the ears looked a bit too costume-ish but drew them ever so slightly on the cowl because without them Batman looks kind of buttpluggy.
Incidentally, look at Robert Pattinson's hair!
Cammalot: you should read the second one! The way it all comes together is just pure crowning moment of awesome. And then read Deathless (review here from yours truly). One of my friends doesn't like Habitation of the Blessed either and I haven't read it myself, but we mostly like Deathless with varying degrees of liking (I love it almost without reservation; she finds some of the things don't work but generally thought it was good).

Orion, if you're reading this, tell your friend he's got his pull quote for the back cover right here.
Feel any better now, Kyra?
