The Batmobile - Chicks Dig the Car - J.D. Coughlan

Set just after Bruce Wayne "died" and Dick Grayson took over as Batman, Dick has invited his best friend, Wally West (The Flash), to the Batcave to talk.

Panel 1: Wide shot. Wally stands next to the Batmobile on one side of the panel, blur lines trailing from the other side where Dick stands. Both are in costume (Dick as Batman).

WALLY: So, I guess that means you get to drive the car now, huh? Pretty cool.

DICK: I've driven the car before, Wally.

Panel 2: Close on Wally. He leans over the car's hood, gesturing at it like it's a priceless artefact.

WALLY: Yeah, but now it's yours.

WALLY: C'mon, let's take it for a spin.

Panel 3: Dick walks over to Wally and the car, a slight grin on his face.

DICK: Why do you want a ride in the car? You're faster than its top speed just jogging.

Panel 4: Wally opens the passenger door and gets in.

WALLY: Sometimes, man, it's not about speed, it's about cool.

WALLY: Trust me, I'm a mechanic, I know cars.

Panel 5: Dick, still grinning, gets in the driver's side.

WALLY (O.P.): Now, let's go cruising for chicks. They love cool cars.

DICK: You're a married man.

Panel 6: Another wide shot of the Batmobile. Dick and Wally's speech bubbled come from inside it.

WALLY: We're not gonna pick any of 'em up, we're just cruising, like "'sup, ladies?"

DICK: Is this a mid-life crisis?

WALLY: Shut up and drive.

  1. I'm just smiling to see Wally again. I'm also happy to read Dick in the Bat suit again. Fun script that makes reminds me why I have so little love for the nu52. Cool piece.
