To everyone who thinks that the ninja bats currently found in the Grant Morrison-written Batman comic book (the cover on the left, Batman #656) are a wonderful example of the mad ideas of the God of Comics, we would like to refer you to the Stan Sakai-created Usagi Yojimbo (cover of issue #44 on the right).
The Komori Ninja (komori is Japanese for bat) have been part of the rabbit ronin’s universe since 1990, first appearing in this comic (in a story called Blood Wings).
The Management does not dispute the greatness of Grant Morrison nor the wonderfully bizarre nature of ideas he brings to modern mainstream comics; the management exists solely for the dispersement of correct information to the public. Thank you for your co-operation.
(With thanks to the Usagi Yojimbo Dojo for the cover scan and information on storylines.)
