All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder by Frank MillerThis was a weird one!
Not Batman-and-an-elephant-in-a-Tijuana-sideshow weird, more like a two-headed-koala-bear- preserved-in-a-jar-of-formaldehyde weird.
Frank Miller brings his unique
Miller implies that Bruce Wayne was a mama’s boy with violent tendencies before his parents were gunned down and that he used his grief to fuel a sadistic rage against pretty much anything and anyone that didn’t fit into his twisted wheel house of justice.
Fair enough, so we won’t expect Batusi lessons.
Fresh off watching his parents gunned down in front of him, Dick Grayson is “abducted” by Batman and drafted into his war on crime.
No homo-erotic sub-text here.
This brings him into conflict with a nascent Justice League which consists of Superman, a doltish Green Lantern, a lunatic Plastic Man and an overdrawn Wonder Woman.
Yep, Jim Lee. If you’re looking for objectified, flesh-baring, fan-boy-esque, ultra-cosplay depictions of women, then look no further than this volume.
Let’s empower a female character, give them intelligence, wit, abilities, super-powers and then undercut them by having them wear the cheesiest costumes a horny 14 year old boy can conjure up and sadly, the above gif is one of the tamer examples.
Miller doesn’t stop there. Batman and his brutal crime fighting methods are fetishized by women, including Barbara Gordon/Bat Girl and Dinah Lance/Black Canary (just don’t call her “Love Chunks”).
The only redeeming aspect of this book is Miller’s cracker-jack dialogue and wit. The last issue contained here – a confrontation between Batman, Robin and the Green Lantern is almost worth the price of admission.
In order to counteract the Green Lantern’s power, he has Robin, himself and the meet-up room painted the color yellow, Lantern’s one weakness. Ha!
Bottom Line: Miller’s done some brilliant stuff in the past – this one, doesn’t even come close. Jim Lee – Get a freaking girlfriend!
