Here’s something that may or may not need an explanation, but I’ll offer one nonetheless. It’s basically a sight gag that occurred to me that I thought would be amusing to draw. The original inspiration was from the latest issue of Batman Odyssey by Neal Adams, a comic that I’ve been enjoying for it’s madcap portrayal of superheroes and the expressive drawings. The story reads a lot like a Mad Magazine movie parody, a narrative style that I enjoy. It jumps from scene to scene and the characters talk to each other a lot, but they don’t really seem to listen to each other, and they often talk directly to the reader. It’s nutty and I like it. The first page of issue 5 depicts Bruce Wayne eating a banana and drinking raw eggs. The banana reminded me of Leonard Cohen who I’ve been listening to recently on the home stereo. The cover of the album I’m Your Man is a real cool pic of Cohen in sunglasses … eating a banana. It tickles me, and so there you have it. Batman, Leonard Cohen, banana. Beyond that I don’t know what to tell you.
