Welcome to the fifty-fourth 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. And this time out they actually finish the darn thing and boy do things go pear shaped right there at the end. Batman #649 and 650 were fine, though the guys had issues about how closely the story was tied to the then lead up to Infinite Crisis. Then they talk about Batman Annual #25 and if you listen closely you can hear the moment where Andy loses all hope in humanity (generally) and this story (specifically).
He has some thoughts.
Mike did too, but Andy was more passionate about his.
Then they swerve right there at the end and cover some listener feedback. That wasn’t the original intention for the episode, but things happened in post production and everything worked out.
Below are the covers and select pages from the comics discussed in this episode…
