Giving advice to Batman: NEVER a good idea.

I'm sure The Spirit has nothing but good intentions here. However ...




Really, I suspect that ALL The Spirit did was to give Batman advice on how HE gets tough with people. Well-meaning advice to the WRONG control freak.

I tried to sum up The Spirit to the Roller Girl the other day. To distance Will Eisner from the expected Frank Miller version, really. I went in to far too much detail and history, style and how Eisner used the whole thing as a story telling engine when she really just wanted to know who he is.

"He's like Batman. 'cept not rich. Not as smart, but with a sense of humor. And he gets beat up a lot."

I think that did it.

Batman's problem, is that he always takes things JUST a little bit too far.

Hee!

Well heck, I stole it from Scans Daily. But it's a whole lot funnier in your context.
