But Goosebumps started much later in 1992.

    I don't like how Jason's emotions regarding his parents' death were portrayed. Sure, there was a moment when he faltered but then he calls Bruce his new father - which is a cute scene, but it happened so fast, too fast for my taste.

    Pre-crisis Batman and post-crisis Batman don't seem so different when it comes to some bad guy laying a finger on one of the batkids.
    Some comics in the late 70's and early 80's had a slight pulp feel to them, which translates in a dark vibe in the stories and themes, I guess. Maybe it's the same case of Batman and Tec here.
    This is a signature. It has letters on it, and those letters form words. Words like these. I will not quote anything because I'm uninspired but, I read a lot: I could!

    And this is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    These scanned pages are coming really clear, are they from the various Tales Of artist and writer books?

    I enjoyed both chapters. Man-Bat and Savage Skull are two surprisingly interesting characters. At least for one or two story arcs.
    At first I thought Savage Scull was pretty bland, just a bad cop doing bad stuff and looking scary. But with the introduction of his and Bullock's past his character gains some nuance.
    I'm thrilled to see how the story around Commissioner Gordon, Mayor Hill and Harvey Bullock will develop.

    Waldo looks so damn scary in Detective Comics #528. Is there even one single clown in the (main) DC universe that one can trust?

    Batman #362 is mostly a filler story, basicaly a very typical Riddler case.

    Detective Comics #529 is the start of the Nocturna Story line, that will go on (partly in the background) for a good part of the run.

    It is nice to have with the Night Thief a Villain who can go toe to toe with Batman, even if his costume is little simple and his stick with his devotion to the Night/Nocturna is kind of wired.

    The Riddler story itself didn't spark my interest but I liked the tension between Gordon and Bullock.
    I'm looking forward to Nocturna's story line. I've already read some parts of it and found them very enjoyable.
    There is not much Jason in Detective Comics #529 but as it seems Jason and Bruce already had communication problems with each other pre-crisis.
    It's interesting to read the Waldo stuff retrospective. I wonder if readers back then had a bad feeling about the clown too.

    So according to Wiki, that's the end for Savage Skull.
    I can understand why writers didn't want to use him anymore. He's pretty much a one-trick pony. But I'd still like to know if Savage Skull shot an innocent kid or an arsonist.
    Savage Skull denies the crime until the end and his backstory, that he and Bullock trained ghetto kids how to fight, doesn't back up the claim that Savage Skull would shoot an innocent kid.

    They they streched the time a little bit before Bruce allowed him to become his partner.
