Snark Free Corner for 7/16

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

GREAT SUPPORTING CHARACTERS

Harvey Bullock is one of those amazing characters where, once they are introduced, you really do not know how the comic made do without them.

As a brash, boorish but ultimately heroic Gotham City cop, Bullock serves as both a POV character (pointing out the subtle absurdity of the concept of a vigilante dressed as a bat) and someone in the police department other than Commissioner Gordon that Batman can turn to for help.

At the same time, Bullock also serves as the comic relief.

While it probably did not make any sense (and I do not believe we were ever shown HOW it happened), Bullock’s return to the Bat-titles after an….ahem….unfortunate departure from the books awhile back was most welcome.

I wish he would be used more in the various Bat-titles, though, because he is a valuable member of the cast.

What’s your favorite Bullock comic book story? Mine would probably be the one-off issue of Detective Comics that Chuck Dixon wrote spotlighting Bullock.

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover from either Batman, Detective Comics, Legends of the Dark Knight, Batman: Shadow of the Bat or Batman: Gotham Knights that features Harvey Bullock on it.

For example (and you can’t use this one!), this Detective Comics cover…

And remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
