The frosting of justice should be applied evenly.

So this past Sunday was employee Timmy’s last day of working here at the shop, as he leaves us to pursue his dream of becoming a professional flamenco dancer. As a result, the Official Comic Shop In-House Baker and Morale Chief pal Dana brought us the above spongy delight in honor of Tim’s firing leaving. A little bit of the icing came off in transit, which you can see on the wax paper there, but that’s okay as Batcake is too busy fighting culinary crime to worry about such niceties as a flawless fondant. And Tim and his pals certainly liked the cake well enough, as they basically inhaled it before poor ol’ Mike could get a bite. But, that’s okay, since 1) I’m still sick, and 2) I’m still working on the phalanx of cupcakes Dana gave me for my birthday.

I’m pretty sure Dana is fattening us up for something nefarious. Well, good luck with Timmy, since he has the metabolism of a hummingbird, but just typing the word “cupcakes” made me gain three pounds, so I’m clearly an easy mark for whatever she’s planning.

Anyway, while at the store Dana said that while she was putting it together, she was pondering what flavor a Batman cake should actually should be. She decided on chocolate, but I told her a Batcake could only have the flavor of justice. (You know, whatever that tastes like. Probably something with blueberries.)

    Geez, I thought I was the only one up this early.

    This makes me think Batman’s lips should always be black. It would strike terror in so many more places!

    It’s the cake’s subtle little smirk that wins it for me.

    “Criminals are a superstitious cowardly lot, so my disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. I must be a creature of the night, black, terrible…”

    Swampy sighting.

    What does justice taste like? Just ice.

    Mike, you can still make me laugh even when you’re not feeling well. I can only imagine a world where you mete out justice with squeeze tubes of icing.

    I never get any comic shop snacks! Oh, and justice tastes sweet.

    Don’t go near the bookshelf! That new graphic novel? “To Serve Batman”? It’s a cook book!

    Somewhere in Scotland, Grant Morrison has suddenly become mysteriously inspired…

    I don’t trust that smirk. The cake knows something.

    Hey Mike,

    First time commenting, but I thought you should know about this. The comic lose #1 by Michael Deforge is not only pretty nifty, but features, in the underworld a bar on top of a giant Nancy head, inside of which Swamp Thing makes an appeareance.
