it’s Miller Time in our “Batman: Morrison vs. Miller” series as we read the seminal “Dark Knight Returns” by Frank Miller. This beast of a comic creation ages Bruce Wayne to his latter years after a 10 year sabbatical from the Batman. We talk about the changes the villains undergo, the debate on whether Batman should have even returned, and Beef Supre– err, I mean President Camacho.

It’s Darkseid’s turn in our Thanos vs. Darkseid competition as we read “JLA: Rock of Ages” by Grant Morrison. This Justice League “classic” from the 90’s flings some of our favorite heroes all over the time stream and lands them in a dystopian future where Darkseid has conquered the earth. But hey, it’s not easy writing a book full of so many characters and just tossing in more Deus ex Machina machines than you can shake a stick at won’t solve the problem even though old superheroes are the best superheroes.

We wrap up our sidekick series with an open discussion on the role and function of sidekicks in comics. Are they necessary anymore? Why were they around in the first place? Is there a reason why there’s always some kind of implication of pedophilia with Batman and Robin? C’mon, Tumblr, tell me why.
