A Month of... There Is No Hope in Crime Alley, Night 30: Spread the word around / The rat is leaving town

Panels from Happy Birthday Gnatrat one-shot (1986); script, pencils, inks, and letters by Mark Martin

Based, of course, on this.

Panels from "The Legend of the Batman — Who He Is and How He Came to Be!" in Batman (1940 series) #1 (Spring 1940); script by Bill Finger, pencils and inks by Bob Kane, background inks and letters by Sheldon Moldoff

Which takes us full circle. So we bid farewell to lonely, terrified, tragically scarred Bruce Wayne, and tell him "See ya next year, Bruce!" Hope you'll join us then! Oh wait...there is no Crime Alley! BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!

Next month: pancakes are up!

I never noticed that Kane "borrowed" the same face for Bruce seeing his parents murdered and Dick seeing his parents murdered.
