Is Shirtless Batman Sexier When He Speaks or Stays Silent? Batman #82 [Preview]

Tom King’s Batman run continues to its early conclusion as Batman #82 hits stores from DC Comics this week. Last month, we got an early, unlettered look at the big fight between Batman and Bane which saw Batman take off both his mask and his shirt. With Batman #82 in stores tomorrow, DC has released a fully lettered preview, giving it to compliant media partner Den of Geek as comics media continues to mistake access for journalism.

Do words make shirtless Batman even sexier? Let’s find out.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
