Welcome to the twenty-fifth 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 Andy and Mike talk about some…weird stories. In Batman #318 we are introduced to Firebug…became the name Firefly was already taken. In all seriousness this is an interesting story that once again feels like it would have been home on one of the action/super-hero shows that were on television when this issues was on the stands. A man dressed in an amazing red and yellow costume is setting fires to get revenge for his family. What happened? Listen and find out. Then they talk about the Batman story from Detective Comics #487 where Batman has to protect a writer that has gotten into the cross-hairs of the League of Assassins because they just happened to hear him talking to himself as he was jogging by.
Seriously. That’s what caught their attention.
Below is a gallery of images from the books discussed in this episode.
