Batman by Grant Morrison, Episode 02 - Tales of the Demon | Crushing Comics Book Club

Crushing Comics

Welcome back to Crushing Comics Book Club for Batman by Grant Morrison! This is the second of three episodes of pre-reading to catch up on some of the themes, characters, and influences on Morrison’s run. In this episode, we read the first 2/3rds of the Tales of the Demon TPB, which includes the debut of Talia al Ghul and R’as al Ghul. We didn’t know what to expect from these Bronze Age stories, but we wound up falling in love! Harry is our expert – he loves Batman and Morrison, and he has read this run multiple times. Fariha is our intermediate – she has read plenty of Morrison and DC. And, Peter is now the novice – he’s read some of this run before, but otherwise this is his FIRST TIME reading pre-New-52 Batman! The stories are: Detective Comics #411 – “Into the Den of the Death-Dealers” (May 1971) Batman #232 – “Daughter of the Demon” (June 1971) Batman #235 – “Swamp Sinister” (Sep 1971) Batman #240 – “Vengeance for a Dead Man” (March 1972) Batman #242 – “Bruce Wayne – Rest in Peace!” (June 1972) Batman #243 – “The Lazarus Pit” (Aug 1972) Batman #244 – “The Demon Lives Again!” (Sep 1972) Tune in next week as we wrap up our pre-reading by finishing the final four issues in Tales of the Demon, as well as the Demon Trilogy of Son of the Demon, Bride of the Demon, and Birth of the Demon.

Batman by Grant Morrison, Episode 01 - Intro to Batman & The Black Casebook | Crushing Comics Book Club

Crushing Comics

Welcome to a new season of our Crushing Comics Book Club, where we discuss a classic run of comics together as both fans and critical readers. For the next few months we’ll be reading Grant Morrison’s Batman, but before we get started we’ll be doing a few weeks of pre-reading to catch up on some of the themes and influences of the run. Harry is our expert – he loves Batman and Morrison, and he has read this run multiple times. Fariha is our intermediate – she has read plenty of Morrison and DC. And, Peter is now the novice – he’s read some of this run before, but otherwise this is his FIRST TIME reading pre-New-52 Batman! Today, we start with a discussion of how we first found Batman (and Morrison), plus a read of Batman’s debut in Detective Comics (1937) #27 as well as Batman (1940) #1 – the first appearances of Joker and Catwoman. Then, we all read The Black Casebook for the first time! It’s an unusual book – 12 of the most-outlandish Golden and Silver Age stories as selected by Morrison to hint at, explain, or reflect the themes of their Batman run. We’ll talk about our FAVORITE Casebook story, the WEIRDEST story, plus give a rundown of EVERY tale in this tome – with a few hints from Harry at how they might be relevant later. The stories are: Batman #65 – A Partner For Batman! from June, 1951 Batman #86 – Batman – Indian Chief! from September, 1954 Detective Comics #215 – The Batmen of All Nations from January, 1955 Detective Comics #235 – The First Batman from September, 1956 World’s Finest #89 – The Club of Heroes from July, 1957 Detective Comics #247 – The Man Who Ended Batman’s Career from September, 1957 Batman #112 – Am I Really Batman? from December, 1957 Batman #113 – Batman – The Superman of Planet X from February, 1958 Detective Comics #267 – Batman Meets Bat-Mite from May, 1959 Batman #134 – The Rainbow Creature from September, 1960 Batman #156 – Robin Dies at Dawn from June, 1963 Batman #162 – The Batman Creature from March, 1964 Tune in next week as we read the Tales of the Demon TPB.
