Ask me anything

I can’t make words work. If I could say the right thing to you maybe you could tell me what it is that’s killing me. I wouldn’t mind it if you saved me. I’m sure some would hold it against you. Turn it on you. Try and take all your good and ram it into your gut so hard that the whole world turned black and all you could see was scar tissue.

I think of you a lot. I think of you and me walking along in a parking lot at night. Our shoulders rubbing against each other as we listen to our voices. We’re both damaged and beautiful. We know the order of order and the order of disorder. We’ve both been hunted and nearly destroyed by weaklings with big ideas. We know the night.

I was hoping that you would turn out to be strong, stronger than I ever had thought possible. I was hoping you’d be able to save me. That you would be able to stop time for a second. That you would be able to make a miracle happen and show me. That you would take the pain away.

“ It is sad that the things that we saw in each other are no longer there. It is a shame we tore each other apart looking for things that we needed desperately but could never find. It is tragic that we only wanted to give to each other but only stole from ourselves and blamed each other for the emptiness in our lives. ”

So I Read Today… Batman: Venom (1991)

If there’s one Bat-book you can enjoy without worrying about the long arm of continuity it’s Batman: Legends Of The Dark Knight which was an anthology book that rarely crossed over with any other batbooks in his day. A team of creators were given a certain amount of issues to tell a particular story they wanted to tell with the Dark Knight. A lot of them comes from Batman’s early days at the job. “Venom” which was told in issues #16 to #20 by Deniss O’Neal, Trevor Von Eeden and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez works really well as a prelude to “The Knightfall Saga” since much of the defining elements comes from this arc.

The Story begins when Batman fails to save a little girl named Sissy Porter from drowning in a sewer after being kidnapped. Although Batman did the job to find her, he failed because he wasn’t strong enough to pull her out of the cave she was buried while water slowly poured in. When he goes to the family to break the news, he finds a very unaffected Dr. Randolph Porter explaining how he wouldn’t give up his life’s work in design drugs meant to improve stamina and strength. Not even for his daughter. After almost 96 hours without sleep or rest Batman goes after the men who pulled the kidnapping and gets his ass handed to him, so he receives a little help from the good doctor.

After taking a pill of Venom a day for three months, Batman loses the edge to act as a detective and relies more on brute force and enforcement. Intimidating and punishing criminals well before they even do anything. He stops wearing the costume, he behaves aggressively towards Alfred who goes as far as resign from service after seeing Bruce become more and more of a monster while losing sight of his mission and true purpose. It’s only when his supplier cuts his dose and makes him face a very though choice  that Batman will realize how far he’s gone in his addiction and like any junkie who faces a moment of clarity he chooses to do what he must to make himself sane again: he locks himself up for nearly six months in the batcave until his body goes in remission and cleans the drug out of him. When he finally comes out of the cave, It’s payback time and he’ll go as far as Santa Prisca to find the man who wronged him and stop his mad purposes for the Venom of his making.

This is one great tale where we get to see a very humane Batman deal with a problem anyone could have when it’s dealt with pressure to give his best and no matter how hard he tries he’s unable to. I highly recommend it!
