Welcome to the eighteenth 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. In the second episode of the month they discuss the various books that were associated with the animated Batman shows of the nineties, though just about everything is fair game.
This time out the Joker proves that he’s just a big jerk. Actually, he’s more than a jerk, but the guys try to keep this family friendly. Oddly enough the Joker is not the main villain in either of the books the guys discuss during the course of this episode but he definitely sets things in motion. In Batman Adventures #1 the Penguin hatches a crime thanks to the prodding of the Clown Prince of Crime while over in Batman and Robin Adventures #1 the Joker gets bored and uses his criminal genius to make Two-Face believe that Bruce Wayne and Harvey Den’t fiance Grace are having relations. Either way, the Joker is a huge jerk even though he’s kind of funny at times.
Below is a gallery of covers and pages from the comics we discussed this time out.
