The Doctor Is In T-Shirt

“The Doctor Is In” shirt based off the “You’re The Last of The Time Lords, Charlie Brown” comic is here!
ALSO: Wil Wheaton and I got excited and made a thing! Check out our University of Gallifrey Fighting Time Lords Shirt over at Sharksplode.
ALSO ALSO: I am closing out some current t-shirt and print designs. Please check out this blog post since the stuff on closeout probably won’t be available again.

Man, running a company is hard! You’ve got to deal with supply and demand, and keeping employees motivated, and making sure the break room has the snacks everyone likes (and some of them are sugar free because that one guy in payroll has diabetes), and how sometimes your history and/or future gets rewritten by a major crossover event and also everyone has these new collars (even Wonder Woman who doesn’t even technically have a shirt, so how does she have a collar? I guess it’s more of a choker + battle bustier combo…) so that’s just one more damn thing to deal with. Plus your assistant wants a raise, but she can’t even really use Excel, and she’s always telling the dry cleaner “no starch” in your capes, but you NEED STARCH (you’ve told her 100 times) OR YOU CAN’T GLIDE from rooftop to rooftop… BUH! It’s too much! Sometimes you wish you could just start over fresh, with fresh choices and a new continuity (maybe one where your parents aren’t so dead), and a new collars and… oh wait.

COMMENTERS: Feel free to discuss DC’s “Flashpoint” crossover/event/arch/reboot/whatever. Also, what else goes on in the day to day workings of Batman, INC? Is the Batcopier out of Battoner again? Does the boss sneak up behind you and scowl from the shadows when you’re goofing off on Facebook? Does he keep giving the sweet promotions to his son, Damian, when you’ve put in WAY more hours and are TOTALLY more qualified?

  1. I hate it when that jackass in HR eats my Batlunch? We've run out of Batcreamer in the breakroom?

    • "Batcreamer" sounds like some dodgy Slashfic adhering to Rule 34

  2. This Batjob would be great if it wasn't for the fucking Batcustomers

    • It's a Batcareer, not a Batjob.

      You can get a decent Batjob for about $20 behind the dumpster at Denny's.

  3. You know that Robin is playing grab-ass with the Batgirl at the Scranton office.

  4. And someone posted that photoshop of the four mid-Western Robin's 'getting it on' on the batboard again.

  5. The Batman for Woodbury, Minnesota would probably spend his days making sure teenagers don't loiter in parking lot of the Tamarack Village mall.

    (I know this, because I provide tech support for the Batman of Blaine, MN)

    • And his nights doing security at Vali-Hi drive-in? Makes sense!

      • Oh, wow… did my random city choice hit close to home?

        • Yes. Yes, it did. :-)
          Nearby suburb of Saint Paul.

  6. Our batcountant is the batcountant this company deserves, but not the batcountant this company needs right now. Let's hunt him down and kill him!

  7. Wait…I had something for this…

    • Just the bat-tip

  8. How is it that whenever you need a name for a pudgy, generic, non-threatening, milktoast of a character, everyone always goes with Steve?!?

    We Steve's are a force to be reckoned with, goshdangit!

    Reply
    • Case in point: Steve Rogers.

      Reply
    • I consider Steve and Steven to be very different names. Steven reads very well in dialog. Steve sounds like he'd steal your girlfriend then punch you right in the face. No, wait.. thats Kent.

  9. What's the Batman equivalent of a TPS report?

    (Umm, Joel? There's a typo in panel 2 – "ever changing", not "every changing". :) )

    • A batform, of course. Someone has to keep track of the batarangs, batcaltrops, bat smokebombs, batgas for the Batmobile, and then re-order all that stuff.

  10. Hmm…about that…I'M THE GODDAMN BATMAN!

  11. The job was a sham anyway…half the pay was in Wayne Enterprises stock, and it takes four years to become vested!

    • And there isn't any Accidental Death/Dismemberment insurance, or long-term disability.

  12. Everyone hates the games they play at the annual company Batnic.

    • The '500m Relay Race while Surviving Attack Dogs' wasn't so popular, but it was better than last years when they set off a nuke behind everybody.

      • Still beats the "Jump From 10 Stories Up Using Only Awnings, Flagpoles, and Porch Furniture to Break Your Fall" race.

  13. 'PC Load Batarang', WTF does that even mean?!?!

    Also….the last time a bunch of men who skulk in the shadows and recruit young boys formed a group they called it NAMBLA.

    • Or Log Cabin Republicans…zing!

  14. I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll put on my electromechanical Batsuit and kick Superman's ass…

  15. They'll definitely need new tech support, since Barbara Gordon's getting "demoted" from Oracle back to being Batgirl (which is strange because she's gotta be the same age as the current Batwoman, Kate Kane). to think, it takes all of time and space rearranging to return the use of her legs, instead of plain old high-tech braces or a dip in the Lazarus Pit.

  17. It was really lame when the fuel expenses were getting out of control and they started replacing the Batmobiles with VW Beetles with the corporate logo on them.

  18. He put my bat-a-rang in bat-jello again! Damn it Bat-Jim!

  19. The Joker keeps beating my administrative assistant to the brink of death, and the customers have to vote on whether we take him to the doctor… and just when I get him trained to get the coffee right!

  20. For some reason I also saw Woodhouse as Two-Face rather than Alfred. I guess he got tired of putting up with Sterling's shit.

  21. Man, I'm glad I'm not the only one who caught the bizarre collar/half-shirt thing Wonder Woman has goin' on.

    Reply
  22. IOC this DC reboot thing doesn't work, Batman can always sell his soul to the Devil to make things go back to the way they were. I'm sure that would never piss off any comic book fans.

  23. Man, OG Gordon Freeman Batman ruined hella unicorns for Earth so that he could take it away from the tyranny of the combine and repair the triangles. Why are you so pissed?

    Also deez nuts are not a snackrifice.
