Welcome to the forty-eighth 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. Back in episode 39 they started a series covering Jim Starlin’s run of Batman and they are going to continue with that until they get through all of his issues, up to and including Batman: The Cult.
This is, folks. Andy and Mike have reached the end of their look at the Starlin run of Batman. The guys only have one book to cover this time and it is far from the explosive finale to a run that you might expect. Then again, after you kill Robin there are few places to go. In Batman #430, Batman has to stop a man with a rifle from killing more people while at the same time trying to keep the man from getting killed by the police. As the Dark Knight goes about his mission, he is reminded of his past and details of Bruce’s father’s life are revealed. After that, Andy and Mike go through the comments left over on the main Fortress site about past episodes.
Below is the cover and select pages from the comic discussed during this episode.
