Batman's Shameful Secret is our forum all about comic books and "graphic novels" (which is just a fancy way of saying "comic books for people who think they're smart"). What up with it, muscles like this?

Manga for BSS Japanese comic books? Why they aren't about superheroes! They aren't about superheroes at all! What could we possibly be talking about?

Costumes that are NEVER cool The good, the bad and the ugly. Costume talk goes HERE. Also, fan favorite ChickenSuit does some redesigns of classic heroes.

Webcomics Megathread 12: All Goons Have One, Not All Goons Have Good Ones Pushing the limit of how long a thread title can be. A brand new webcomic discussion thread for a brand new day.

The Achewood Thread 10: Rude Titties and Rad Chillies. This thread starts out pretty normal, just a regular discussion of the webcomic Achewood. Recently however the creator of the comic Chris Onstad was given a forums account and posted. Oh, how he posted! There was much rejoicing as well as some creepy damn questions sent his way.

me how spiderman would be able to swing around like he does Spider-Man, Spider-Man, something something Spider-Man. Uh something about bub and radioactive blood? Alright, so I don't know the song. However this guy doesn't know how Spidey goes about his webslinging ways. Lets all teach him, shall we?

No Music Discussion. Don't discuss music here, ever, for any reason. If you attempt to discuss music, you are subject to the fury of thousands of angry nerd fingers lashing their keyboards at lightning speed to disagree with you. DON'T DO IT, I BEG OF YOU!! But first, pour a 40 for Sir Tonk.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
