A Year of Cool Comics – Day 339
Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!
We continue the Cool Christmas Comic Countdown with a fun Batman and Robin Adventures story by Paul Dini, Ty Templeton and Rich Burchett as the Riddler tries to answer the true meaning of Christmas…well…maybe not THAT, but he’s going to try to find the answer to something ELSE important – the identities of Batman and Robin!!!
In Batman and Robin Adventures #3, “Christmas Riddle,” a Gotham society gath’rin’ is having its Christmas party…
But is Riddler here to steal stuff from the club? It appears not, as he tells the world (after capturing a news reporter) his “real” motivation – to reveal the identities of Batman and Robin!!
I LOVE the fact that Gotham City is so messed up that there are multiple rich people with motive and ability to be Batman and Robin. I thought that that was an inspired bit.
But of course, our first twist of the night is revealed…Batman and Robin are NOT at the event!!!
There are a lot more twists where that came from, just like there is a lot more awesome artwork by Templeton and Burchett. It seems almost wrong to have two excellent pencilers working TOGETHER! Plus Linda Medley was the colorist on the issue! Three great pencilers on one comic!! Wow!
