Ohhhhh Cuphead. The talk of the gaming interwebz worldwide for good reason. Not only is the game itself a (mostly) fun experience, but “Cuphead” is one of those games where any gamer (or any person who glances at it, honestly) can easily see the love and care that went into creating it. Most game designers enjoy what they do regardless, but you have to 100% believe in a game to draw it frame-by-frame just like the cartoon movies of old (aka Walt Disney-style).
Greetings from the silence, guys! In the past, I mentioned that I have quite a few interests outside of makeup and beauty (some that may even combine with those two focuses), but I’ve yet to make any posts revolving around them. So welcome to my first Batman Banter post! I will make this the names of my talks about everything and anything Batman-related, since he is my absolute favorite superhero and Batman comics are amazing. Hope you enjoy!

As most avid Batman fans knew, whether from previous news announcements or from cast talks at this year’s San Diego Comic Con a few weeks ago, director Sam Liu and renowned past Batman writer Brian Azzarello created a movie rendition of Alan Moore’s infamous Joker-focused comic titled The Killing Joke. Now, The Killing Joke is one of the most influential comic books in the history of comics (even outside of the Batman community) and gives fans some sort of canon backstory of the Joker while still never truly knowing his origins. With this comic being so well-known, Liu and Azzarello had some high expectations to uphold. So…did they succeed?
