My dear cowhatninja insisted that I draw Batman for Baman Day. And so here I have recreated a climactic panel from one of my favorite Batman stories, “The Two-Bit Dictator of Twin Mills”, a 1944-45 tale from the newspaper daily, written by Al Schwartz. The inking and tone was by Charles Paris, and the pencils are credited to Bob Kane, but I don’t believe he actually drew the story.
Anyway, this story features what is my personal favorite Batman villain, JoJo the Flinker. He’s an arrogant hitman who never misses with a gun, which he calls a flink. (One flinks with a flink.) His “mannerism of speech”, as they say in the story. And his name is JoJo. And he was drawn to look just like Peter Lorre, who is probably my all-time favorite actor.
This would unquestionably be my favorite Batman story, but not too long after, the daily also had Batman and Robin dressing up as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, respectively, in order to infiltrate a criminal’s fancy masquerade party. So there’s that.
