Christmas Comes Early: Here's the Hilarious Frank Miller Cover to Detective Comics #27

Good lord! We can't stop looking at it.

Wow. Just... wow.

Normally, I'd write something sarcastic about this, but it's Christmas Eve, so instead I'm going to give you this article in its rawest form: the text conversation I just had with Outhouse Ace Reporter ThanosCopter (he's on an expidition to the North Poll to snarkily interview Santa Claus) after seeing this cover:


Jude Terror: Can we reset the counter for Frank Miller's Detective Comics #27 cover being so awful?

Jude Terror: Catwoman is wearing a fishnet shirt with no bra.

ThanosCopter: That is a hideous cover. Jesus.

Jude Terror: I can't stop looking at it. She's presenting.

ThanosCopter: My cat does that too. Also, Didio called it beautiful in a video.

Jude Terror: Is that Didio's ink spatter all over the cover?

ThanosCopter: You can't put that in the article.

Jude Terror: I'm planning on this conversation BEING the article.

ThanosCopter: In that case, I really appreciate the detail that he put into fishnetting her boobs. True artistry.

Jude Terror: As a composition of shapes and colors, it's visually attractive and somewhat provocative, but the subject matter is so absurdly juvenile you can only laugh at it.

Jude Terror: You know what? I'm back in the camp that Miller's a genius.

Jude Terror: Should I call you ThanosCopter in this article, or use your secret identity of... Oooh! Psych, readers!


ThanosCopter stopped responding to me at that point, having encountered some strong winds that were causing ice to build on his rotors. Stay strong, buddy! You're gonna get that fat, jolly bastard and make it out of there alive!

So, Merry Christmas, everyone!

There's only one logical path forward here.
