BATMAN GOES TO A RESTAURANT! the Batman. A grim avenger of the night, he dwells in the shadows of Gotham City to strike at the vicious and cowardly criminals who threaten the safety and well-being of Gotham's law abiding citizens.

Sometimes, the Batman has allies in his war against crime. But more often than not...

Batman watches over Gotham...alone.

Batman stands alone.

Batman fights alone.

And sometimes...


Batman must dine...alone.

And now, I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You presents the tale of what happens when the Caped Crusader decides he wants a pork chop from Gotham City's finest dining establishment.

"I am VENGEANCE! I am the NIGHT! I...could use a quick bite to eat."


Hostess: Hello! Welcome to the Gotham Club.
Batman: Good evening! I'm Batman.
Hostess: How may I help you?
Batman: Yes, I have a reservation.

Penguin: Wauk! Wauk!

Hostess: Buttman, let me see...

Batman: No, no, no! Not Buttman. Batman!

Hostess: Batman, Batman, Batman...

Batman: Is there a problem?

Hostess: I don't see a reservation for Batman.
