Great Moments In Overly-Complicated Death Traps!!

Because Batman and Robin are not very good at their jobs, the Joker has captured them...so it's time for a overly-complicated death trap!!



Wait...not just starving vampire bats--but starving vampire bats with poisoned teeth and claws!! 

Geez, Joker, why not infect them with the Clench, too, and give them switchblades, and...

It makes me incredibly sad that neither Joker nor the Dynamic Duo comment even once on the irony of Batman about to be killed by bats...

Oh, don;t worry--they escape just fine.





We never find out what happened to the bats. The probably escaped and killed dozens while Batman was off playing robbery games with Joker...

From World's Finest Comics #19 (1945)

Brian passed away either Friday or Saturday. The police checked on him after a friend became concerned that he was not answering his phone. His family has been notified and no services are planned. The police stated his death appeared to be of natural causes. He was only 55. :(

Oh man. I did not know Brian beyond this blog, but I came here almost every morning for a dose of his enthusiasm, generous goodwill, and wry wit. I will miss his presence enormously. We all will.

What ?!?! I hope this is a bad joke, but I fear it is not. Snell = Brian?

Gosh, this was THE best comic book blog on the internet, bar none. Oh no !!

Sadly, not a joke. I grew up with Brian, my parents still live near his. I didn't really know him past early adulthood. Even as kids though, Brian had hundreds and hundreds of comic books..he and my brother shared that interest:) He was always a unique guy..incredibly intelligent, a master debater in high school. I have nothing but fond memories of him. I knew he had a blog, and wondered when he had last posted. I was shocked to see it was just this past Friday. I hesitated to post about his passing. I realized though, that if I followed someones blog faithfully, I would want to know why things just stopped.

Your memories of him and your explanation of what happened are important and helpful. Thank you for posting.

Thank you for letting us know.
I only knew Brian as Snell. I never met him in person or shared more than a passing remark about comic books on this site. However, I will miss him. He had a strong passion about his writing and his insightful posts and humor were never juvenile. He managed to elevate the comics above the medium itself and audience they were originally intended for while at the same time recapturing for me the sense of joy I had when I used to read comics in my younger days. Thank you Brian. Rest in Peace.

I've enjoyed this blog for years and I'm so sorry to hear of Brian's passing. If only Kid Eternity to could summon him back for at least a little while to at least let him know how much Slay, Monstrobot of the Deep meant to me and others who followed this blog. Rest in peace, Brian and my condolences to his family and friends.

Such great humility and decency. Snell will be missed

The community just got a bit colder and a bit lonelier. He will be greatly missed.
