Evan Carroll, poet and comic enthusiast

Evan Carroll is a New Jersey poet who performs his poetry with a slow cadence that he compares to Jim Morrison.

In some of his works, he subtly references DC heroes in his works.

From his poem “Flecked with glass,”

“Your jaw and features are ragged, cut like a goblin sword, jagged

Retinas dull and reflective, scanning like the Detective’s”

This is a reference to Batman being known as the world’s greatest detective or just “detective” by most notably Ra’s Al Ghul.

A big fan of the Dark Knight, that is to say the character, not the film, Carroll considers the Bat as a big influence for himself.
