That Is Not The World’s Smallest Violin, Alfred ಠ_ಠ

“I should note that the subsequent panel, not pictured, reveals that Alfred is not actually showing Bruce how to bounce the ol’ pogo stick, but instead is playing the “World’s Smallest Violin”… I ask you, is this how you would draw the act? Is that how you would draw the person on the receiving end?… This is craziest comic I’ve come across in years. Please, someone smarter than me, review this series.”

Eric Reynolds of Fantagraphics, noting a particular page in Batman: Odyssey #4.  (Click for bigger image.)  Related.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
