Batman: Year Fun
This is fucking awesome. So Bruce Wayne discovers that his father Thomas Wayne won a costume contest in 19.. something, and while dressed as "Bat-Man" he happened to fight off a few criminals. That's some full circle revelatory shit right there.
Interestingly enough, this story sort-of-but-not-really-at-all inspired the Darren Aronofsky-Frank Miller script for Batman: Year One, in which Bruce wears a ring his dad owned that had the letters "TW" on it. The "T" went over the "W" (kinda like the NY Yankees logo) and when he punched criminals with the ring on, it would form what looked like the bat logo.
Still can't figure out why that film never got made...
