Childhood comics: THE ANGRY BATMAN

James / June 19th, 2011

These are the only comics I have coming up that aren’t exactly “childhood comics”. These are far more recent (2000’s). I had a job with a lot of downtime, and was bored, so I drew these. The idea was what would happen if Batman went crazy and killed people.

Surprisingly, I discovered in recent years that my version of the Angry Batman was not too far from an actual comic series “All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder” (2005 – 2008) written by Frank Miller in which Batman, believe it or not, calls Dick Grayson “retarded” and then says “I’m the goddamn Batman!” It’s become a popular internet meme, after I privately coined the phrase myself.

    OMG…I like this XD
    You were seriously pissed of that time.But I think that I can understand because I actually work in a place that piss me off ALL the time and,after a day of work,I play some game like Mad World for Wii or other games like that.
    I even swear a lot when I’m in the car going home if there are some drivers that are very clumsy XD

    You made the Dark Knight even darker! Next thing you know he will be around slapping Cat Woman because she didnt give him all the money!

    Seems to me like James has a pretty good start at a lawsuit against Frank Miller.

  • June 19, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    At first I was like : “Hey we’re not sunday !”
    Then I was like : ” “oh yes we’re actually friday”
    And then : ” GODDAM BATMAN ! ”

    I’m also famiular with the “Goddamn Batman” meme. Linkara of “Atop the Fourth Wall” did video reviews of the first 4 issues of ASBAR, and I agree that the Batman in those comics are very NOT Batman, and that guy in the batsuit prefers to be called Crazy Steve.

    Crazy Steve strikes again!

  • June 19, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    You know… I laughed my ass off at this!!! You should really make contact to Marvel or whichever company it is that makes Batman comics, and submit this to them. This is great.

    June 19, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    This is actually much better written than Frank Miller’s version

    Good comic. Homicidal Batman would be a pretty interesting topic for Over Analyzers. Good work.

  • June 19, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    June 19, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Hahah these are actually pretty funny! Yeah, when I was reading it I was like, “this is like All Star Batman and Robin.”

  • June 19, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    Still more rational than Frank Miller’s Batman.

  • June 19, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    What’s that thing in the end of the comic? Is it a Dinosaur? Godzilla? what is it? and what does that thing have 2 do with batman? WTF?

  • June 19, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    Please Give me an answer is it a dragon a reject from Jurassic Park what is it? and why does it have anything 2 do with batman?

    yay an asshole comment

  • June 19, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Linkara should see this. I bet he’d laaaugh….

  • June 20, 2011 at 2:15 am

    He is not the GOddamn Batman… He is the Motherfucking Batman, He is NUts! And he will decapitate you if you don’y pay respect!

  • June 20, 2011 at 2:17 am

    to add… the last time we saw a batman like this, he was reviewing his own games and raping the joker with the cartdridges.

    so much swearing, james this is not a child friendly cartoon, anyway I found a child friendly site where swearing is banned so if you fancy clicking here you can play TMNT and althe other NES games for free d well I think this is a goo deal and then when you post your comments you can do it from an informed perspective.

    but please as an act of kindness if you choose to sign up for free (and there are not costs anyway) leave the referrer as it is as a way of a thank you, I leave it to your rust, I must be mad trusting internet strangers but anyway its up to oyu if you click.

    Wow, this brings back a lot of memories… I used to make similar comics when I was 9/10 years old about He-Man, Hardy Boys, and Dark Shadows characters.

    As always, make sure to check out my vulgar Philadelphia architecture blog,

  • June 25, 2011 at 3:01 am

    This comic is epic!!!!!! took me awhile to stop laughin though

    When has James Rolfe ever been fucking child friendly? Are you retarded? Have you ever seen… Fuck, ANYTHING he’s ever put out? Where and when has there ever been a James Rolfe video (besides the more serious documentary videos and some odds and ends like the Generation TMNT videos) where he hasn’t cursed and fucked shit up? Go away. Nobody wants to play terribly emulated NES games on an internet browser. If I wanted to play emulated NES games in my browser, I’d go to VirtualNES. Go away now, scoot. Nobody wants to play TMNT Tournament Fighters… Yuck.

    So, face-punch by the Angry Batman always results in a head-splosion. ALWAYS.

    This is a rule I can abide.

  • July 4, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    LOL XD

    fucking amazing
