BATMANOLOGIST GUIDE TO COMIXOLOGY’S MASSIVE 99-CENT BATMAN 75TH ANNIVERSARY SALE
By Chris Sims
Okay, so there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that ComiXology is having a massive sale on Batman comics, and has knocked a bunch of them down to 99¢ each, which means that you can grab some great stories on the cheap. The bad news? Since this whole thing is in honor of Batman’s 75th anniversary, they’ve put 750 comics on sale, plus a handful of graphic novel collections. All things considered, that’s a pretty good problem to have, but still, that can be pretty overwhelming.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. As the World’s Foremost Batmanologist, I’ve sifted through the sale to bring you safe bets for what you should be grabbing during the sale. Assuming you’ve got the obvious ones — like The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One and the recent runs by Morrison, Snyder, and Capullo — here’s what to grab next!

SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE EXAMINES ELIOT R. BROWN’S MAP OF GOTHAM CITY
By Chris Sims
Whenever I talk about my status as the World’s Foremost Batmanologist, one of the jokes I always go with is that I’m more familiar with the layout of Gotham City than I am with certain sections of my own hometown. It’s only a slight exaggeration, too — ever since I first saw the map depicting the battle lines in the pages of the 1999 No Man’s Land crossover, I’ve been obsessed with the cartography defining Batman’s hometown.

What I didn’t know until the recent article posted by the Smithsonian Magazine, was that the map of Gotham City that’s been in use for the past 16 years in comics and movies was originally created by Eliot R. Brown, the artist previously best known to me as the man behind Punisher Armory.
