Memory Monday: All Talk Works, Sometimes

I know I just used something from Swamp Thing #53 last week, but this sequence is one of my favorites ever.

batman_vs_mayorI think what I love so much is that Batman’s victory in this issue comes not against the fearsome, nigh-indestructible Swamp Thing, but rather against the mayor. And it comes not due to weapons or gadgets or martial prowess, but rather…through simple smarts.

batman_vs_swamp_thingWhat I love most about this is that little indulgent, self-confident smile on Swamp Thing’s mossy kisser.
