Follow The Penguin’s latest quest for power as he prepares to undermine one of Gotham City’s most powerful politicians. What does the criminal mastermind stand to gain?
In “Once Upon a Midnight Dreary” three of The Dark Knight’s greatest foes unite in to tackle the threat of Batman head-on! Will the diabolical scheming of Scarecrow, Mad Hatter and The Penguin be too much for Batman to handle?
This writer’s favorite of the DC Relaunch titles so far draws to a close as the Penguin’s penchant for pervasive punishments prevents peace.
DC Comics has released a sneak peek of this week’s Penguin: Pain and Prejudice #2, that you can check out, after the jump.
Today’s entry comes from Chris Uminga.Â Why do I like it?Â There’s something oddly appealing about his big headed drawing of super-heroes and their villains.
Batman #689 continues Dick Graysonâ€™s incremental takedown of the Penguinâ€™s many underworld schemes, thanks to tips from an anonymous source.Â But like any good would be kingpin, Oswald Copplepot isnâ€™t going to take these attacks lightly.
What do you get when you take an illegal bootleg movie that features, Batman, Robin, the Penguin, and “the Joker”, a dancing midget in a Spider-Man suit, and a bunch of other randomness?Â A bonus Major Spoilers Friday Sing-along.
AAAAHHHHHHHHHH!Â IT BURNS! IT BURNS!
It’s just so bizarre, the hypnotic melody and gyrations, had me watching this at least three more times before my mind exploded and I blacked out.
It’s a slow day today, so how about a sneak peek of Batman #688 from DC?
You know where to look.
For most of Battle for the Cowl, readers havenâ€™t been privy to the actual gang warfare between Two-Face, the Penguin, and Black Mask.Â In The Underground, The Riddler and Catwoman get a first hand look at what is going on, and for Gotham it isnâ€™t pretty.Â It may not even be pretty for those who pick up the issue.
Woot!Â Woot?Â (chirp)
Rev up your excitement meter, because the biggest Bat event of the season is here, as anyone and everyone is stepping up to fill the boots of the man that saved Gotham City more times than that other guy.Â Wow!Â This is going to be the bestest thing in the world, right?Â Yeah… about that…
When I was younger, I loved Bloom County.Â When it ended, I was a tad sad, but thought everything wrapped up nicely.Â When Breathed launched Opus, I read it of and on, but never felt it captured the crazy spirit behind Bloom County.Â Perhaps it was the Sunday only appearance that left me feeling all “meh” inside.
Berkeley Breathed contacted the Los Angeles Times, announcing to the world, that now Opus will be ending its five year run on November 2, 2008.
â€œ30 years of cartooning to end. Iâ€™m destroying the village to save it. Opus would inevitably become a ranting mouthpiece in the coming wicked days, and I respect the other parts of him too much to see that happen. The Michael Moore part of me would kill the part of him that was important to his fans.â€
Opus will end with an online contest asking readers to guess the fate of the fan fave penguin.
Seriously, when Christopher Nolan hasn’t even signed to direct the third film, and while no announcements have been made about Warner even greenlighting another Batman movie, did you really think the reports about Philip Seymour Hoffman playing the Penguin were true?
This is one of those silly rumors that have been around for a many years, and it took a quick interview with Hoffman to put it to rest.
â€œNo one has talked to me about it ever â€” never,â€ replied Hoffman. â€œIt happened, like, five years ago, too. It was a rumor back then and itâ€™s still a rumor. [laughs] Itâ€™s just in the press. Itâ€™s funny.â€
We reported on this rumor up a couple of years ago, and learned our lesson from it.Â There’s a reason why we haven’t been running all those wild rumors lately- because that is exactly what they are – wild rumors, that serve no purpose but to further push nonsense.Â Sure, it’s fun to speculate, or to get a really good laugh, but too many surfing the webs believe everything they read.Â I would have thought people would have learned their lesson after all those insane Justice League movie rumors IESB was link baiting to all those months ago.Â And for those who still think Johnny Depp will play the Riddler and Cher is set for Catwoman, I have a Will Smith Captain America movie script I’d like to sell you.
