All Hallows Eve may once have been a favorite occasion for creepy costumed crime-busters… However tonight seems not so much, as somewhere on the grungy side of town – taking solace in a beer and um… a friendly sheep…
And what about the Bat Temp? Is she also – “Dead Jim”? Will we be needing to reboot a new comix? And if so, who will star in it? Katz? Moxie? or maybe the Sheep??
Find out all this and perhaps other perplexing developments – well… probably not next time… but soon… maybe…
Quite a downer from the man that once faced down a super-guy from the stars.
What money problem? If he would sell part of his bat-cave gear he could get a new start in something else. His super-bat mind came up with nuclear batter technology to power his impressive bat-car. A lot of people might pay handsome rewards for almost any of such bat-tech. He is heavily invested in crime fighting, but I bet that could very easily figure out how to fix Bunz space craft. For a couple of decades now, he also has his own version of computer AI’s and the like. Money is there for him, if he wants it.
As to who we might bring back. Moxie of course. The story needs a person as good as the bad guys (the invaders at the story’s start) are bad. And maybe Franky. A gun shot will not permanently bring him down. His lightning kick-started healing factor will certainly re-boot him as needed. And tough as she is Moxie will need some help.
And consider some sort of restart for Glueface. Yeah he was a shake-down criminal. But rather than run from the murderous clown, he actually barehandedly took him down. Courage he has got. With the whole earth in trouble — give him a second chance.
Ummm… I think perhaps you might be thinking of some other HEAVILY COPYRIGHTED flying rodent themed, somewhat gravelly voiced and night-shift working, crime stopping, vigilante anti-hero guy. This one’s just a lonesome loser with dog poop on his boot who has been reduced to whining into his beer in a sheep-shack. Even the trollop won’t give him the time of day. Sad.
Be that as it may – I imagine that all those bat gadgets cost a fortune in research and development – also are likely not in compliance with public health and safety standards for marketing… leaving the remorseful rodent guy up to his utility belt in debt…
Franky is most likely repairable… that is, if he wasn’t buried under the congealed goo… Still, as anyone who’s watched the old Universal movies knows, you should never count Franky out, when it comes to seemingly impossible survival…
I agree with you. He might have learned the wrong lesson from his trip to the failed nuclear reactor. Yes we humans can most certainly do very stupid things. But the other lesson was finding the limitless courage to contain that same reactor. He is presently a lost soul of a hero — that’s for sure. But that’s why our story has other characters in it. Someone might somehow save him in some small way, that he might save us in a bigger way.
Hey, hey, hey! More to the point here people – where the heck is Li’l Bunz! Against all odds she cleans up the town and then vanishes in a puff of electrons. Where oh where has our underdog gone? She didn’t even leave a silver bullet! And Katz – we haven’t seen katz in ages – seven panels at least. Where did he get off to too?
Hey, guys… even aside from the fact that Batz is NOT The B**man (copyright attorneys please take note), in this particular (not to say peculiar) cartoon universe, dead is dead… face it, with his flip-top permanently flipped, and encased in a glob of glue, Frankie ain’t coming back… ditto the Clown, Glueface, et al (especially Al…) and no doubt a new batch of nefarious noodniks will eventually replace them… but as for that li’l invading alien charmer, Bunz, who knows?
Dead is dead sometimes. You do recall a certain story mime run over (maybe more than once) by a truck. He was back in the story called to do jury duty.
Ah, but you also remember, in a page just previous to that, that a guest appearance by the immortal Fearless Fosdick turned out to be a cardboard prop. You’ll note that the mime and other characters in the jury box, except Bunz & Katz, seemed oddly motionless. No coincidence.
Poor B-Man! As usual, nice hot chick from you,JQ!
I can hear in my mind the Adam West version of Bat-guy in Josh’s version of the hero. Nice channeling of dialog.
