FROM THE MOUTH OF...

...Keith Giffen:

Don't get me wrong here. I'm not railing against the use of rough language. Some of my favorite films, books, etc. traffic pretty extensively in it, but in a Batman, or, for that matter, any mainstream superhero comic? What were they thinking!?

Unbelievable.

Again. Find those responsible and show them the door.

  • That was my first reaction when I heard the news. At the very least, the letterer should have used words like "cant", "fack", "shut" and "batch". And believe me when I say that I am not blaming the letterer at all. He was given a job to do and he did it. Someone in charge over there should have been the grownup and said "This might not be a good idea."

  • I don't know why, but I'm going to say Batch! from now on. haha.

  • The blame goes firmly on Frank Miller, and the editors who indulged him. I'm betting an angry parody of the "Goddamned Batman" was not what DC thought it was going to get.

    But by the same token I think my response to Keith would be: how exactly do you say "no" to the goddamned Frank Miller?

  • Oh wait a minute...

    isn't this the guy who participated in the creation of the omitted lesbian sex scene from "52"?
