That's a bearded Bruce Wayne
up above telling (the unseen) Alfred the Butler
to "Take me to my cave!"
For about a year now the current DC Comics
have had Batman
out of costume (and Superman
also, for that matter). Heads should probably roll in the DC
editorial offices because whichever honcho ordained that the public wanted a non-Batman
and a non-Superman
for a year could not possibly have been more off-base! Put two of the most internationally recognizable icons in mothballs? Seriously?
Anyway, the long wait is over, and Bruce Wayne
will once again be donning his costume in next month's Batman
#49. The one panel shown above and the great line in that word balloon almost make up for the many months I've been subsisting with non-Batman.
"Take Me to my Cave"
