Welcome to the fifty-third episode of The Overlooked Dark Knight. The is a non-index index show where the hosts, Andrew Leyland and Michael Bailey, look at Batman comics that rarely, if ever, get talked about.
This time out Andy and Mike continue their series of episodes where they talk about the Batman: Under The Hood trade paperback. To be fair, they continue that talk about 40 minutes into the episode because they spend the first 2,400 seconds on the longest tangent in the show’s history. It’s quality conversation. They promise.
Anyway, the guys continue their trek into this trade by talking about Batman issues 646-648. There are explosions, a little bit of the ultra violence, and betrayals as the Red Hood ups the ante of his war on the Black Mask. Deathstroke enters the picture and offers Black Mask a membership into The Society, which makes perfect sense if you were following the larger DC Universe at the time these books came out but is probably bewildering to those that are reading this book in the here and now. There’s a fight with some mid-level super villains and it all ends on a major cliffhanger.
Below are the covers and select pages from the comics discussed in this episode…
