Batman, Master of Timing!

I was inspired by this classic panel of The Batman's display of keen and cunning strategy and expert, unparallelled tactical skills...
Batman #1 panel
Panel from Batman #1 (Spring 1940), written by Bill Finger,
art by Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson


...to create the following comic strip, which I call

Batman: Master of Timing!

I didn't even realize there was a limit on the length of alt-text, but I guess there is. You work it, li'l bull!

Chris Sims said...

There is nothing I genuinely love more than comedy that commits to an extended silence as the joke. Wonderful.

Y'know, it's really hard to type admiring comments when you're laughing hysterically. Just sayin'.

Bless you, Little Stuffed One.

That is all.

BRAH-VO!

Brilliant. And Subtle. Yet not.

Thanks for the larf!

I bet young Dick Grayson is one of these kids who starts singing along with the music on the radio a full measure before the chorus actually starts.

It's like an episode of The Office starring Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson.

Bully, you're the smartest Bull on the Net!

Fortress Boy said...

When the moment is right, I'll tell you how awesome this is.

Adam Barnett said...

That's one of the funniest things I've ever read.

Mike Lynch said...

Thanks for this, Bully. Very funny!!!!

SallyP said...

Oh Bully...you have absolutely MADE my morning. And it's ok, I can make another pot of tea...it was SO worth it.

Philip said...

This was fantastic, but it does leave me wondering why Bruce can't keep his pipe lit. It looks like he went through an entire box of matches in a single evening.

Blockade Boy said...

Exquisite.

Decompression has never been more fun! Huzzah, Bully!

The text-less panels had me verily breathless in anticipation! Bravura work, you master scribe.

Gregory Zura said...

Good Gosh, is there nothing that this bull doesn't excel at?

Steven A. said...

Brilliant! Honestly had me laughing 'til tears were shooting out my eyes!

Nimbus said...

I'm surprised they're not bothered by the fact that Bruce's hair is on fire. That must hurt!

Or is Bruce wearing a smoking jacket in those panels? ;-)

Rich said...

Frickin' fantastic!

A bear walks into a bar. He says, "Give me a bourbon and a ....

The bartender says, "Sure thing, but why the big pause there?"

The bear says, "I don't know, I've had them all my life."

Say, Bruce. Would you care for a little smoking jacket with that pocket hankie?

Funny stuff, Bully!
