Guardians of the Galaxy #13 by Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli, and Dave Marquez.

Scott Summers: Badass at any age.

Hey, good job sourcing that Awkward Zombie comic. For this kind gesture, did you know there's a show called "James Bond Jr."? It's about Bond's nephew fighting his old villains in a kid friendly way. Oddjob is a villain's henchman in it and wears a purple and green tracksuit.

I have had a surprising number (read: not zero) of conversations about James Bond Jr. recently! Derek Charm brought it up when I was out in Seattle, and the other day we were talking about it on Twitter and I talked about how I never saw the show, but I had a novelization (I’m pretty sure it was “Live And Let’s Dance”) and I once saw this toy at an outlet mall in Myrtle Beach that was a CD player, like a discman, that had A HIDDEN GUN.

It was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.

Seriously choked on my lunch laughing at “Live and Let’s Dance.”

SUPREME by Alan Moore is the best comic that nobody ever really talks about. Its ALL-STAR SUPERMAN level good.

One-quarter of the year down and I figure it’s time for a report on the best of what I’ve read, seen, and heard in the first leg of 2014. Someone has to make sure you’re all properly entertained. I feel like if I don’t take action you might wind up sitting at home in your Captain Caveman jammies,…

Wait, wait, wait, BRUCE COVERED WHAT?!

Brought this with me to read on my commute today. Forgot that it is goddamn terrifying.

I didn’t know those were things that existed!!!! How could I not know there were these things?????

kingsquotes, it was a series of motion comics webisodes (or “mobisodes,” because they were meant to be downloaded to mobile devices) first, then a miniseries. It’s collected in hardcover, trade paperback, and probably digitally. It’s *really* good.

Here’s An Idea I Had About Batman 

So as you may already be aware, I like Batman a lot, which means I think about Batman all the time, and ever since I started writing comics, I’ve been thinking about what I would do if I could do a Batman story. That’s pretty common, right? I mean, surely everyone has a Batman pitch in their back pocket just in case it ever comes up. One of mine, the one that I think could actually work really well, was The Batman of the 30th Century.

The basic idea comes from two things: One, that the Legion of Superheroes is founded as a Superman spinoff, which means there’s a lot of Superman legacy stuff that shows up over the years, and there’s a lot of Flash stuff that shows up from XS, Impulse and the Tornado Twins, but there’s nothing in the Legion’s future that indicates a legacy for Batman. (There’s also nothing involving the Wonder Woman legacy, but, you know, that’s a discussion for another time.) And yet, if you skip ahead to the 853rd Century of DC One Million, the Batman legacy is definitely alive and well.

Second, and the reason it’s so weird that there’s no Batman tie-in for the Legion, is that there actually was a “Batman of the 30th Century.” His name’s Brane Taylor, and he appears in a one-shot story in 1954. It’s not all that obscure among people who read a lot of comics, and with creators’ love of tying things together, it seems mystifying to me that there was never a reintroduction of that character as part of the Legion’s future. Maybe it was the name? “Brane” is, to be honest, kind of awful. But it’s all there, and looking at it as a fan, it seemed natural that you could tie it together. The only thing that you’d really need would be to tweak Brane so that he’d fit in with the teenagers of the Legion, and when I saw (and bought the original art for) Cliff Chiang’s Gatchaman-inspired “Science Ninja Hero Batman,” it all seemed to fall into place. I really wanted it to have a strange feeling of the retrofuturism of the original Legion and its Silver Age roots along with Batman’s darker, more modern aesthetic (there’s a lot of the Morrison run in this, for instance).

So I thought about this for years, and I ended up mentioning it to J. Gonzo, the artist of La Mano Del Destino, and he really loved it and wanted to draw it, and came up with a few ideas his own along the way — Robin and Bat-Mite were his ideas, and I love ‘em. We ended up making a full pitch document with character designs and summaries that I think is really cool, but at the same time, I know that there’s a roughly zero percent chance that it will ever actually happen. So we showed it around to a few people, and now I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy!

That giant pink space alien Robin is top notch stuff.
