I started reading Batman around the middle of part three and stopped towards the middle of part four. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

On the swipes behind those early batman comics.
A good bonus piece that helps you understand why those early Bob Kane Batman stores look so funny.

Finally, someone has realized the potential of the internet!

Seriously though, interesting blog and good post. At first I thought it was just some guy named Todd, but it is Todd Klein, who lettered about a bajillion comics.

Really cool, thanks.

Wow. Who knew Todd Klein had a blog, on lettering, no less. It's like reading about composition by Jack Kirby or something. I'm having a fanboy moment here.

This is actually my second Batman-themed post after this one about Las Onomatopeyas , which has (almost?) all of the onomatopoeic fight title cards ("Vronk!" et. al.) from the TV series.

I totally read that as "batman legos" so of course I had to find some.

Cool post.
