Batman and Sleepwalker


Sleepwalker was one of those heroes that emerged in the early 90's, during the huge comics speculation boom that resulted in tons of new titles, characters and even entire comics companies appearing regularly.  There was just no way to try everything out and his title was one that I never got around to checking out.  Are there any fans of the series here?  Did it make an impact on you?

He had some potential. Really dig the backdrop. How about a future Sleepwalker in The House of Mystery ( with Scooby?)?

This is my introduction to Sleepwalker, so I read a little bit on him. I think he'd be an interesting person to team up with the Golden Age Sandman.

Bob Greenwade -
Sleepy and Sandman have met twice on this blog, and he met the Endless' Sandman also.

I loved Sleepwalker as a kid, collected the whole series as it came out. I thought his rogues gallery was pretty nifty.

He was like the Martian Manhunter trapped in Mesmero's costume. But, with the m.o. of Jack Kirby's (Late Silver Age) Sandman. My favorite issue being his one-shot run-in with mutant ex-babysitter Lullaby.

As for this depicted team-up? I can see this particular Scarecrow as being Jonathan Crane diabolically occupied by the supernaturalized Ebenezer Laughton!

Mike: I stand corrected. Those covers had somehow slipped my mind, and I didn't think to check the tags (I'd somehow gotten the impression from the text that this was Sleepy's first appearance here). Thanks for the reminder!

Other than Stan Lee's "Just Imagine" Sandman, and maybe the LSH's Dream girl, I think that's just about everyone in the "dreaming" department.

You forgot the super-villain from BATMAN'66 (played by the late, great Michael Rennie).
