Sub-Urban Poems, Lynda Hawryluk.

Lynda Hawryluk, who I met tutoring the same course as me this semester, and who is a fine poet and person*, is having a launch for her collection, Sub-Urban Poems on Saturday.

It's at Gleebooks at five thirty.

I'll be there, and if you can, so should you.




* Though, y'know, totally wrong about Batman's cape and its function.

Batman's cape has a function? o.0 And I thought midgets were the only ones who could pull off capes.

a midget can do anything.

anyhow, some people (not me) think that batman's cape helps him in flight, or when he is leaping buildings, y'know? me, i figure it's just all part of looking bat like and freaky.

You are correct, Ben. Batman's cape is essentially part of his image and arsenal-something to convey a dark menace. I have never seen it used for anything else, and I have read a fair bit of Batman.

Artists definitely use it for this purpose.

However it wouldn't be impossible that somewhere in the "cheesy" Silver Age it was used as like a "parachute" or soemthing in an emergency.

Hey, I'm a comic geek :-)

i knew i was correct, for i am a geek, too :)

(though i don't read the batman comics much (the lapham run does interest me, though). i have seen the cape used as a protective device from fire on the cartoon, though.)
