Welcome to the fifteenth 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.
Well…that’s what Andy and Mike normally do. This time out they are jumping on the holiday bandwagon and celebrating Christmas with two fantastic Yuletide themed comics and a classic Power Records…record. First up on the docket is Batman and Robin Adventures #3, which sees the Dynamic Duo taking on the Riddler at a fancy Gentlemen’s Club. His goal; discover the true identity of Batman! Or is there something more going on? Then the guys play the previously mentioned Power Records classic The Christmas Carol Caper where Batman does something he rarely ever has to do. What is it? Listen and find out, already! Finally Andy and Mike talk about The Brave and the Bold #184, where Batman teams up with the Huntress, which should be all kinds of fun if Bruce’s father wasn’t accused of bankrolling a gangster!
All of this and more Christmas cheer than you can stand!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!
Next Time: Things go back to normal…with Batman and King Faraday fighting Two-Face and then the Teen Titans fighting Batman!
