Batman’s Most Ordinary Adventures

Who He Is and How He Came to Be


It was David Willis, so far as I know, who first postulated that if slapstick comedy becomes more funny as the intelligence of its victim rises, then Batman is the greatest straight man in the world, capable of making anything funny. That’s probably why the Joker likes him so much. That’s probably also why Sarah Johnson‘s Ordinary Batman Adventures series is so popular, so check it out when you’re done looking at this small sample here.

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.
