The Blue, the Grey, and the Bat

Well, these Elseworlds titles are fun—but sometimes strange. This one, written by Elliot S. Maggin and with art by Alan Weiss and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez is drawn very much in the old Classics Illustrated style. It manages to throw in Lincoln, Samuel Clemens, and Wild Bill Hickock. These latter two are very appealing, though Bruce Wayne himself is a bit of a nonentity. As ever in a Western, a good horse is proven to be more important than a woman, which is a bit of a shame.
