Summer dead heat

It has been hot before.. a review of newspaper headlines from decades past reveal that we have had heat waves in June. but when they happen, and when they happen so early especially, they feel brutal.

They also always remind me of the Frank Miller BATMAN comic, especially this piece of art of a hot and steamy Gotham City baking in a summer heat wave.

The art pictures Gotham’s magnificent twin towers in 97 degree heat.. No relief was on the way. As a matter of fact, later that day the Joker was going to do much more damage on the “David Endochrine Show” …

Heat.. Hot.. hotter..

It is like staring down a barrel of a constant stream of oppressive heat..

Days like today feel like the midnight sun from the Twilight Zone is really happening..
