Although the only child in the house, his loneliness eventually changed during his fourth birthday, when his parents brought in other children for him to befriend, but most spent his party running around and yelling. Despite having play dates with the other kid over the next three years, he secretly wished to stay away from some except Rachel, who was the friend he saw the most.

Werner Klemperer, in character as Colonel Klink. Howard Duff in character as the hero of The Felony Squad, another 20th Century Fox show airing on ABC at the time this series started its run a few months before Batman, which would make this a plug for the other show. In a particularly memorable example, the Dynamic Duo encountered The Green Hornet and Kato in the window, greeting them as fellow heroes.
In a later episode, these heroes were full-fledged guest stars, but now Batman and Robin believed them to be criminals, as they pretended to be in their own series.

Several new things to add to the site, many of which were on my want list for some time. Gorey, Eduard – not comic art but a favorite and long term want list item. Quirky, odd and macabre.

Bernet, Jordi – 3 nice Corto Maltese themed pieces which are the end result of a larger commission that didn’t quite work out as planned.
Also a nice little Torpedo sketch recreating a cover. Williamson, Al – Flash Gordon 5 page 2. All Flash, all Al. A long coveted item finally found its way into my collection. Hewlett, Jaime – Tank Girl pages from Deadline 4 and 25 page

Mild spoilers for Episode 2 follow. Fractured Mask gets Season 2 back on track and makes the previous episode look like a fluke.

Also, is it just me, or does Selina look like a dead ringer for Uma Thurman here? We even get to meet and interact with longtime GCPD detective Harvey Bullock, who has a quick cameo while forcing Bruce to make a quick and potentially punishing decision.
Unfortunately, the ending of Fractured Mask disappoints even more than the previous episode. Regardless, Fractured Mask renews my enthusiasm for the episodic Bat-series. The Verdict Rebounding from a weak second episode, Batman:
