As Valorum alluded to in a comment, "Bats, Books, and Crazy Crooks", in Batman '66 #18 has Bookworm seeking out an occult book. Entitled "Bats, Books and Crazy Crooks," this Jeff Parker-written, Richard Case-drawn comic is a lot of fun.

People with such genetics belong to the Homo magi subspecies. This was shown for the first time in JLA #165, from 1979 (as seen in the link). Homo Magi are naturally adept at ...

The dialogue is meant to mimic an episode of "You Bet Your Life." Groucho was the host. He wasn't called Groucho in any of the movies. But the "reflected" figure has Groucho wearing a fez, which is a nod to A Night In Casablanca. Notice the Native American Chief at the end of the clip, as the station is signing off for the night. A lot ...

I suspect that this was just created for the film. However, what it is clearly trying to sound like is a clip from the television quiz show Groucho’s hosted, You Bet Your Life. There are several reasons for coming to this conclusion: The person addresses him as “Groucho.” In the Marx Brothers’ movies and other narrative productions, their characters ...

They weren't oil, they were diesel. Dent’s chair wouldn’t move—stuck on a raised board, probably. Dent shifted all his weight to one side and . . . that was a mistake. He began to topple. It was too late to regain his balance, and he fell into one of the barrels, knocking it over, falling on top of it and slipping to the floor. The concrete was cold against ...

Presumably he used trucks On a more serious note… (Why so serious?) Buying them probably would not have raised any flags drums of oil are not really a controlled substance, stealing them may have raised flags but flags ultimately dont matter if no one connects the dots in time.

If we assume the five Robins to be Dick, Jason, Tim, Stephanie and Damian, then they meet in the same comic at least two times. The first one is Detective Comics #1000 (2019) where the whole Bat-family is gathered up on a roof for a group photo. It's unclear whether they all talk to each other, but not unlikely. The second one, much more on point, is ...
