The Penguin’s most humiliating defeat. Well, at least now we know why his romance with Dovina* fella apart.
From Manhunter #1, written by John Ostrander and Kim Yale, at by Doug Rice and Sam Keith. Ostrander, it’s worth noting, eventually makes it up to Ozzie by writing the best Penguin story ever, Penguin Triumphant. Between that book and this page, Ostrander is one of the very best Penguin writers ever.
*Really, internet? There’s not a SINGLE SCAN from the cute Penguin story where he strikes up a pen pal romance with a woman and promises to go straight, but Batman’s a total dick and is all like, “MEH, you won’t ever change, I’ll be watching and waiting!”? I used to think that you could find anything on the internet, but being a fan of Batman villains has really tasted that theory. Why for nobody like Penguin? Feh!
