Welcome to the twentieth 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.
It’s a shorter than usual episode this time out because someone (Andy) had a train to catch.
Seriously. He had a train to catch. The man was going to find comics.
It’s a noble endevour.
Anyway, things get animated this time out as the guys look at the second issues of two of the animated tie-in comics from the ’90s. In Batman Adventures #2 the Joker draws Catwoman into his plot and she leads Batman on a chase to England. Big Ben is involved but it actually has to do with the plot and isn’t just a prop to let the audience know that the characters are in London. Then in Batman and Robin Adventures #2 the Two-Face two parter concludes with a bunch of people getting kidnapped and Dick Grayson being kind of a jerk to Batman.
There is a time and a place to tell someone, “I told you so!” and being tied to a chair after a scarred criminal kidnaps you is not that time.
Below is a gallery of covers and pages from the comics we discussed this time out.
