“Anyway, the Penguin’s sudden devotion to law and order — and his theatrical declarations thereof, including an assertion that he will never again molest an officer of the law — freaks out the squares in Gotham City something fierce. It seems pretty pessimistic, but apparently Commissioner Gordon is deeply uncomfortable with the idea that someone could, you know, stop being a criminal. Then again, doing police work in Gotham City probably kills your optimism toute de suite around the third time you’re almost decapitated by a clown or strangled by a ficus.”—Chris SIms, talking about a pretty excellent Batman ‘66 episode in this week’s Ask Chris column at ComicsAlliance.
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched Clint Eastwood talk to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”—David Brooks (via thebombbag)
