And that's the reason why Batman is the world greatest detective! (sorry Sherlock...)

I love the Roses reference
NeoArchiteuthis Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
That was brilliant. I really love that the characters can switch between child logic and adult concept with fluidity. Well done.

That last panel!!!!!!!!
dariofprsia Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
Oh my gosh, the roses panel...
This is not simply comic, this is ART!
Tumas-Muscat Featured By Owner May 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The symbolism has always been brilliant in this comic, but the case here was both sincere and somewhat heart-breaking. As emotive as all good art should be.
WaterFaerieNaomi Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
You are beyond brilliant when writing this. These comics are amazing. xD
andyx181x Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
Oh man the roses remind of Tim Burtons batman, such a beautiful reference.

YaleStewart Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
Thank you!
eregnar Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
I'm not sure I noticed the rose symbolism the first time I read this...

It almost brought tears to my eyes this time.

YaleStewart Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
Shoot me a note.
goldenavatar Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
That last panel just touches this off perfectly.

Your strip is great. I can totally see this in the newspaper. DC should pick this up and make a daily or weekly newsletter with your strip as part of it. By the way what size are you working at for the original art? Your strips always look so good on the computer. I've seen a lot of strips who try to emulate the newspaper strips and they are difficult to read. You have done a great job drawing and keeping it readable. By the way this is my favorite to date. Keep up the great work.
YaleStewart Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I work on 11"x17" bristol. I'll generally get two strips to a board, but if they're longer ones (like this one), it obviously takes up the whole sheet.
MelvinSchlock Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
Is it just my imagination or are those Amazons, apart from Hippolyta, missing their right breasts (as per the legend of the warrior women)?
agenthush Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
Great moment of characterization, and wonderful bit of humor at the end that pulls us out of the heavy. masterfully done sir.
xxanARTchistxx Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Student Filmographer
Ho, dang, did we just have a legit reference to the death of Bruce's parents within JL8? Did that just happen? Woah...that's...that's dark. Also, Bruce was supposedly 8 when his parents were murdered so he literally just saw them die maybe a year ago. Dude. I don't even know how to react to that. I guess within the confines of this universe I just assumed that Bats never actually met his parents and that Alfred had just always been his semi-foster-dad. So,for me at least, when I saw that it was almost like learning Bat's backstory again for the first time. Just-ack. Heartstrings. Dang it , Yale, I was't prepared for that.
RenkonNairu Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Oh, Bruce...
furbelows Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Bruce your rudeness is forgiven because it was for Clark and mostly because...the two roses...very tragic reminder Bruce is an orphan and (does he blame himself for it?) . BUt LOL at the defect comment.
Chazzwin Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow sir, the way you draw Bruce just keeps getting better and better, bravo sir.
MelvinSchlock Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Wow, just wow.

"I was caught unprepared once" should be a part of the Batman canon, like "I shall become a bat".

And on a purely selfish note, I love Greek women. Your Hippolyta is hot, Yale.
BlueBlolz Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Loved this, but that last panel seems like it needs the "My Parents Are Dead" meme.
YaleStewart Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Strips like these are in direct response to that stupid crap.
BlueBlolz Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Because Batman doesn't smack people?
EveryDayArtist Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Student General Artist
I think someone just earned major respect points...oh cute.
Shirokou Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
"I was caught unprepared once". OMG I started crying. You monster I love you. *wants to give Bruce so many hugs*

lionhert00 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
i think that Bruce just earned serious kudos from Hippolyta and amazing work adding the roses for Bruce's parents since he lays down two of them on the anniversary of their deaths every year
