Read full description of the books Batman: Collected Legends of the Dark Knight:And most of all would I flee from the cruel madness of love
The honey of poison-flowers and all the measureless ill
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1955)
Three short stories about Batman and villains. With writers like Alan Grant and illustrators like Tim Sale and Co. At first I didn't expect to enjoy this collection, but I warmed up to it later.
Here is what we get:
Gotham has a new crime-fighting champion! But is this new hero as righteous and heroic as he appears to be?
Basically this story is a tragic Gothic melodrama with B-rated mystery story line. I'm not so impressed by the mystery part of the story but I can live with it. Somehow by the end of the story I got a bit emotionally involved with the story when it reveals more of how the burden of being a vigilante can destroy a person, tragic love and men forced to do bad things.
(2) Legend of the Bat-Mite
Okay, the artwork is so colorful and so much fun! Bat-Mite, the funny looking elf from another reality and Batman's number one fan! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkXAW..., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eT7d...)
I really love the artwork, although the story is just too silly.
OMG a young Batman getting hot and bothered with a 'reformed' Poison Ivy, a.k.a Dr. Pamela Lilian Isley! It's the best short story in this collection!
'Hothouse' has a decent murder mystery and some really crazy chemistry between B-man and Ivy! The artwork is good too, a bit dark and gloomy but still colorful enough when the plot and the mood needs it to be!
Trust me, I'd never given much thought about Batman/Poison Ivy (still...a Batman who once believed he was in love with Ivy and she loved him in return? How young much he be back then?), and I tended to overlook Ivy's character as a seductress and men-eater (I always remember her as a woman with a mission), but much to my surprise she works it all out so well! Although I still have difficulty to wrap my mind around Poison Ivy as a troubled, sort-of love-sick young woman.
Aside from the romantic plot line and the mystery, I also like Batman's sense of dry, dark humor in this story (e.g. the lines about a man's personality and his car and the Batmobile) and these killer quotes:
There's a no man's land between love and hate--
between passion and obsession
-where it's easy to lose all sense of reality---
and in doing so, lose yourself.
Somewhere in that emotional minefield Pamela Isley wanders---
and I wonder if she'll EVER find her way home.
"Consider the type of women your custom attracted, Master Wayne."
