What made Bat Lash so great? Well, besides the mind-staggering caliber of the strip's creators, Bat Lash was a deep, well-developed, extremely likeable character. In interviews O'Neil calls Bat Lash a "charming anti-hero," and that's dead-on. Lash is a peace-loving, violence hating, poetic soul trapped in a gambler's body. And he's a trouble magnet. Then there are the heart-moving, action-packed, sometimes hilarious stories crafted by writers Aragones and O'Neil. And finally, the masterful, fluid art of Nick Cardy.
