    I just said somewhere else that I never liked Infantino except when inked by Murphy Anderson but I must admit that that Man With Animal Powers page looks good, if that was him, as GCD says.

    Deathman was a pretty cool visual as well. What was the story on that character? I read somewhere a while back that Grant Morrison was resurrecting a villain from a Japanese Batman comic who was called "Lord Death Man", which I thought was a great name.

    Long story short: Deathman only had one appearance state-side (Death Knocks Three Times--Deathman haunts Bruce's dreams, dies and comes back seemingly from the dead twice--one of the scariest stories I read as a little kid); this story was adapted (rather faithfully) in Japan, although extended for many more pages, with Death Man being called Lord Death Man there; Grant Morrison thought that was cool and decided to bring back Lord Death Man as a Japanese villain.

    This simply shows that "interesting" is very much in the eye of the beholder.

    The Harriet Cooper on the TV show and the one in the comic seemed very different to me. Neither seemed particularly maternal--given she was Dick's aunt, you'd think she'd show the boy some more affection. And where had she been all these years? I wish that she could have been more like Bruce's Aunt Agatha (who guessed their secret identities right away). But still an intriguing figure of a woman. She would mysteriously disappear from the pages of Batman or Detective for months at a time--I think she was hold up in her room--a drinking problem no doubt, also a yo-yo dieter. After falling off the wagon one two many times, Bruce must've barred Aunt Hattie from access to her nephew. Mrs. Chilton had to clean up the mess Cooper had left behind--throwing out the vodka in the closet, and the chocolate cupcakes under the bed.

    From the Chipp Kidd Bat-Manga book, a glimpse of Jiro Kuwata's adaptation of the Deathman story, circa 1966:
