OVERLOOKED DARK KNIGHT EPISODE 66 – BATMAN: EGO AND OTHER TAILS

Episode 66 – Batman: Ego and Other Tails

Welcome to the sixty-sixth 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.

This time out Andy and Mike look at the trade paperback Batman: Ego and Other Tails, a criminally underrated collection of stories written and, in most cases, drawn by the late Darwyn Cooke. After a brief discussion over the recent three-hour The Batman film (which Andy has seen and Mike still hasn’t found the time to watch though he wants to) they dig into the collection and talk about the one shot story EgoSelina’s Big Score, and the other one off stories from various anthology titles and Batman comics. The episode devolves into a love letter to Darwyn Cooke as both Andy and Mike have such an appreciation for not only the man’s work but the man himself.

Below are the covers and select pages from the comic discussed during this epiosde.
