Hey, it’s part two of an epic conversation about the legendary The Dark Knight Returns. Joining me once again are Donovan Morgan Grant, who is a reviewer over at the Spider-Man Crawlspace, panelist on the Spider-Man Crawlspace Podcast, panelist on the Batman Universe podcast and co-host of The Next Dimension: A Dragon Ball Z Podcast and Michael Kaiser, the former co-host of Legends of the Batman, The Mighty Shield: A Captain America Podcast and the New 52 Adventures of Superman. In this second installment we spend a lot of time talking about Superman’s role in this story. Like, a lot of time. And there isn’t as much yelling and screaming as you would think. We also talk about the last two issues and the cultural legacy of the series.
I want to thank Don and Mike for coming out to play. It was such a blast and they are welcome back to the show anytime.
During the course of the episode I mention two other podcasts that have discussed this story. The first is the Batman-On-Film podcast, which covered the series back in 2001. You can find that episode here. Also Jim Moon has been doing an entire series within a series over on the Hypnobobs podcast called The Natural History of the Batman and while I recommend you listen to all of the Batman related episodes he touches on Dark Knight Returns during this episode.
