Welcome to the tenth 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. They mostly stick to the later part of the Bronze Age but just about any era of Batman is fair game for their discussions.
First up on the docket this time is Batman #310 where the Dark Knight goes up against the Gentlemen Ghost, who is apparently a bit home sick. There are also accents and plenty of them. Then, in Detective Comics #483, we are given a sequel to the classic story There’s No Hope In Crime Alley which has some lovely art and some problems on a story level. Finally there’s a second Batman story that involves a kangaroo race, which is as silly as it sounds.
At one point in the episode Mike mentions that podcaster and all around swell guy Chris Franklin devoted the first episode of his Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys podcast over at The Fire and Water Podcast Network to the history of the Gentlemen Ghost. It’s a great episode of a great show, so please check that out by following this link.
