The Brave And The Bold: Warrior In A Wheelchair


And here's the second best Brave And The Bold story ever, from the Spectacular 100th Issue. This one's got everything, from Robin being sexist to Black Canary, to a Spider-Man in-joke, to GL & GA continuing their argument from their own book about Speedy's drug addiction. Who says Bob Haney couldn't do continuity?
And yet again, proof positive why Batman is the best character ever. Yeah, put me in a wheelchair. That won't stop me for one second.

  5. This is one of my all time favourite comics as well as my personal favourite B&Bs (although there were a lot of great issues) I recall a few Neal Adams issues that I really liked as well ie 79,81 and 99) I recall after reading this story as a kid and thinking it couldn't get any better with Aparo are cool characters etc that it did as the back up feature strip was an amazing Neal Adams Deadman - excellent book. Can't wait to see your favourite B&B issue all the same.

  6. Lots of Neal B & B on the way, Paul, as well as THAT issue of the Haney / Aparo magnificence. Did anyone ever do a better Bats than Jim Aparo? Er, that would be no...

  7. O.k., I'm a little late to this party - sorry, I was really sick earlier in the week.
    Anyway, great post: you can never go wrong with B&B. And yes, I agree, nobody did a better Bats that Aparo.
    Otherwise, the greatest B&B story ever? Well, the one I'm thinking of is also one of the best Batman stories ever, but I'm not sure if we're thinking of the same one, because it appeared in one of the few issues not drawn by the amazing Mr. Aparo...

  8. We're not, Edo, but I'm intrigued as to which one you're talking about as mine is definitely Aparo.

  9. Well, since we're not talking about the same issue, my favorite is B&B #197, featuring the excellent "Autobiography of Bruce Wayne" by Alan Brennert and Joe Staton. Seriously, that's one of my favorite Batman stories of all time - even if drawn by an artist we normally don't associate with Bats.

  10. Ah yeah, that's a good one, and George Freeman inking Staton works gangbusters.
