Batman: The Man Who Laughs


This is pretty cool, I didn't even know it existed until it showed up in a box on my doorstep. A whole box full of them, actually. Thanks to the fine folks at DC for thinking of me. I've worked in comics off and on since I was 18 and I think this is the first time I've had any of my work collected into hardcover form!* Lots of trade paperbacks and softcover reprints, even prestige format, but never bookshelf quality hardcover! Sweet! They even put my name on the cover! Which is rare, since inkers in comics hardly get any press unless it's being the butt of a joke in a Kevin Smith movie! Rodney Dangerfield got more respect than inkers! So this was a big deal! If you want your own copy, you can buy it here.

The sad thing is that I can't look at the Joker now without thinking of Heath Ledger. That's a real shame.

hey thanks, Aaron for commenting. The LJ version is pretty much my livejournal of my main blog, my actual one is at http://davidpress.wordpress.com.

Other comics I'm reading now I liked Young Liars and Scalped and like Iron Fist quite a bit. Other wise I've been mostly writing quite a bit for CBR. Stay tuned for my blog for more articles there.
