The Pulp Corner returns! I apologize for its (and my) absence but I recently bought a house and it turns out stripping the walls of the Evil Lair isn’t as simple as one may think. Anyway, the Silver Screen Heroes art series has been making the rounds lately and it’s one that immediately caught my eye. Artist Joe Phillips has taken blockbuster comic book movies as well as imagined ones and reenvisioned them as period films of yesteryear. He also designed retro styled movie posters and cast them with the era appropriate actors. It’s a lot of things I love all wrapped into one package.
Today’s Panel of the Day comes from Batman and Robin #17 and I’m kind of cheating because I couldn’t limit it to just one panel, but I think that you’ll understand and enjoy it. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that recently Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo gave us a helluva story with Death of the Family.

Today we review Batman #17 in our Evil Geek Book Report!

Good morning, Evil Geeks! If you’re a Bat-Fan like most of us are, you know that today is going to be a killer for the Bat-Family in an all too tragic and literal sense. The Joker’s been wreaking havoc across the Batman books for the past few months and the Death of the Family storyline is finally coming to a conclusion today with the release Batman #17. Mr. J has been more terrifying than ever during this comeback of his and all we know for sure is that SOMETHING bad is going to go down. So in honor of the Joker and his devious plan, we’re dedicating our Panel of the Day to him.
Good Morning Geeks!
