Happy St. Patrick's Day

Have a green, sheen kinda' day! Remember everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day... even Batman!

Cover from Batman: The Long Halloween #6 (St. Paddy's issue)

The Long Halloween, along with Batman: The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One, and various comics from the 1970s, all served as inspiration for the 2005 film release Batman Begins, as well as the upcoming sequel, The Dark Knight. It is also a personal favorite of current Batman star Christian Bale. Dan DiDio has said there is a possibility for an animated adaptation during a Q and A at Wondercon.

I'm half Irish even when it isn't St. Patricia's day.

Happy St. Patricia's Day to you!

Batmam vs. St. Patrick

Batman lands a vicious right across St. Patrick's jaw. A leprechaun henchman dumps a Pot O' Gold over Batman's head knocking him senseless. Batman is suffocated with a handful of colcannon and corned beef fat.

Game Over. St. Patrick wins.

How about Batman vs. the Leprechaun dude from that bad series of horror flicks! On second thought, that just might be a leftover from last night's spirits.

POP – Thanks a lot and Happy P to you too. I’m about 2/5 Irish myself, or something like that.

Dr. S – Heh heh,

Snab – Of course he wins, but I would sure like to see a comic like that!

LB – They have the Long Halloween in a trade paperback!

Dean – It’s supposed to be one of the great Batman stories.

Randal – Hah Hah, but that actually seems like a real Batman villain from the Silver Age.

Well, ye must be French-kissing the Blarney stone to convince anyone that Batman is Irish!

May Saint Patrick forgive ye.

Dr. Zaius said...

Something else that is very Irish - Green Kryptonite!

Swinebread said...

panda - I sure hope he does!

Dr. Zaius - Now that's a present that Superman wouldn't forget
