In this week’s ball-shattering episode, Magnus puts Rite of Passage from Detective Comics #618-#621 and Identity Crisis (not that one) from Batman #455-#457 under the microscope. These two classic stories written by Alan Grant, pencilled by Norm Breyfogle and inked by Steve Mitchell served as the final lap in Tim Drake’s journey toward becoming Batman’s sidekick.

In the process, Magnus waxes nostalgic over how much these stories meant as a wee ol’ comic book collector in training.

What ensues is seven issues of character-driven awesomeness with one brand new villain, one very old villain, awesome art and engaging characters.

For those of you who regularly fall for click-bait tactics “Here are five things Magnus used to cherish about Batman comics. #3 will make you smile.”

After it’s all over, Magnus stretches open the sack of mail once again to accept fawning praise from his loyal subjects.

What more do you need to hear? Start listening now, lest a deranged voodoo witch doctor kidnap you.

You lowly beggars and miscreants shouldn’t feel left out. You commoners and peasants are always welcome to pay your pathetic attempt at tribute to Magnus. DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept bribes to present your missives to His Excellency for review. The email address to use is excellency@trentusmagnus.com, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!

In an act of nearly inconceivable charity, your leader permits the lowly rabble such as you to kiss his ring regarding this or any other episode. Thus, notes of homage may be sent to excellency@trentusmagnus.com for DiManzocorp interns to review.
