The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 481: Batman: Battle for the Cowl #3, July 2009
I hope you'll forgive a short entry today. A slightly less-than-relaxing weekend of camping has left me with little thought and fewer words. We were rained on, in the cold, a lot. Interesting, yes. Relaxing, no.
That said, this comic plays our fairly simply, and pretty much exactly as you'd expect. Dick Grayson beats the snot out of Jason Todd, saves Tim Drake, and, in a two-page sequence that I really think pays a wonderful tribute to the character of Dick, he becomes Batman. It's lovely, and his too, too short tenure in the cowl begins tomorrow, in the first issue of Batman and Robin.
