ROBBY DIALS "V" FOR VILLAIN
All-Scarecrow Issue!

Hello, Blog readers. Happy "Flag Day." My name is Jonathan Crane, The Scarecrow (a.k.a. actor Cillian Murphy). Some call me the Prince of Panic. I will soon be a major movie star, and all I can say is... it's about fucking time. That's me below, with my gnarly mask on. .Intimidating! You might not know this, but I have been here since the very beginning. Ever hear of a little title called World's Finest Comics? Well, I first appeared way back in WF #3, Fall 19?? issue! True fact.

As The Scarecrow, I'm all about fear, intimidation and terror. That's what I do. I intimidate. I terrorize. And mostly, I intimidate and terrorize Batman. Don't believe me? In this issue, you will see HARD PROOF that even the mighty Batman is intimidated and terrorized by me.

And reader, after making the Dark Knight himself intimidated and terrorized, doing the same to YOU will be a piece of cake. And I will do just that, unless you enjoy my issue of Dial B for BLOG! Now read on ... unless you're ... afraid ... heeheehee.

MY AWESOME ORIGIN
My First Appearance!

See that cheery, colorful cover pictured left? It's World's Finest Comics #3 by Fred Ray. This is the unlikely issue where I, the fearful and dark Scarecrow, made my debut appearance! Did they bill me as "the Sensational Super-villain Find of Autumn 1941"? Hardly. I wasn't even MENTIONED on the cover.
Oh no, they were too busy shouting about some morons named "Red, White & Blue," and that idiot Zatara, father of the blundering, buxom, brainwashing Zatanna. You know, the chick in the fishnets who lobotomized Batman? Well, her asshole father gets billing, and I get nada. Can you blame me for wanting to strike FEAR into Batman's heart? And I do it so WELL! Face it, reader ... Batman is INTIMIDATED and TERROR-STRICKEN by me! You will be too, if you click on the pics for BIG versions!

.MY NON-EVIL TWIN
Dr. Syn: The Disney Scarecrow!

Who's THIS Scarecrow? He's my non-evil twin, "Dr. Syn," aka Walt Disney's The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh. This Scarecrow starred in three TV specials and a handful of comic books, starting in 1963. He was a Disney character, sort of like ""what If Robin Hood or Zorro had lived during the American Revolution, and dressed up as a Scarecrow?" Pictured above are the covers of the first three issues of the comic. Click on actor Patrick McGoohan (right), who played the Reverend Doctor Christopher Syn, to go to the ULTIMATE "Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" Web site! OK, now let's get back to how I terrorize Batman...

INTIMIDATED AND TERROR-STRICKEN?
Fright of the Scarecrow!

Batman here. Look, I'm not saying the movie Scarecrow isn't intimidating. He is! I mean, come on. But the OLD Scarecrow seemed pretty intimidating too, at least before I kicked his ass. In the vintage DC house ad above, he's about to toss me off a cliff. I woke up in time, though. But hold on... the ad copy says, "Once again, the Dynamic Duo is intimidated and terror-stricken by the Fright of the Scarecrow!"

That is such bullshit! Who wrote that? Even if it was true, WHICH IT IS NOT, do they have to put it in the AD?!?!? And what do they mean, AGAIN?!?!?! Sometimes I think people enjoy watching us get tortured. I'm telling you, Robin and I were not terrorized by this shmuck. Just look at my abs! THAT is a six-pack. Who the hell could intimidate and strike terror into ME. You know what? I just decided to go find whoever wrote this ad and beat the living crap out of them. Later!

THE END
COMING TOMORROW:
BAT-MANIA CONTINUES!
