EPISODE 19: BATMAN 75th ANNIVERSARY OF JUSTICE PANEL…DRAGONCON 2014

Episode Graphic 019Episode 19: Batman 75th Anniversary of Justice Panel…DragonCon 2014

Hey, everyone!  Long time, no see.  Sorry about that.  It wasn’t my intention to be away this long but that’s they way life works sometimes.

Anyway, this time out I have the audio from a panel I was on at this year’s (2014) DragonCon.  Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel, the directors for the American Sci-Fi Classics track at DragonCon, were nice enough to invite me to be on the Batman: 75th Anniversary of Justice panel that took place at 8:30 AM on Sunday, August 31, 2014.  My fellow panelists were John S. Drew (who is the award winning co-host of Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast as well as hosting The Batcave Podcast), Mike Gordon (creator of the Tiki Zombie comic as well as a podcaster at Earth Station One), Will Price (contributor to the Seantastic Podcast), Michael Faulkner (writer and host of The Weekly Podioplex  podcast) and Geena Phillips (who writes a fun column on the sixties Batman series over at the Revolution SF site called Batman 66 Bat-Probe).  For an hour we took questions from the audience and talked about all things Batman.  Why doesn’t Batman kill the Joker?  What is our favorite Bat-gadget?  What did we think of The Killing Joke?  All these questions and more are asked and answered.

Be sure to check out the sites and shows of the people that made this such a fun panel to be on.

Below are some pictures I took at the panel.  The first three are the line I found when getting to the panel thirty minutes before it started.  Keep in mind that Sunday morning at DragonCon is not known for being busy what with the the drinking and the partying the night before, so seeing this many people was a bit a surprise.

Next time:  No idea.  Hopefully I’ll have something soon.
