Gotham City NAMBLA Art Show

Yeah, it's a clichÉ to dredge up the homoeroticism of the Batman/Robin relationship, but I still get a kick out of seeing it done well, especially when there's something more than a cheap laugh driving the images. Artist Mark Chamberlain made a lewd and lovely set of watercolor drawings that connect the dots between Golden Age comics and Bel Ami videos, as portayed by the Impressionists. Saucy, but yet sweet.

So do you think that’s Dick, Jason, or Tim?

1) david z.: I think it's Dick--his relationship with Bruce had a depth that the other Robins lack. In addition, Tim has better hair, and Jason Todd probably thought Bruce was too vanilla for him. (May 27, 2005 5:48 AM)
