Welcome to the twelfth 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. They mostly stick to the later part of the Bronze Age but just about any era of Batman is fair game for their discussions.
This time out the guys present their first Halloween themed episode in fine style by looking at two Batman stories that are far from overlooked but they’re talking about them anyway. First up in this Gothic filled episode is The Secret of the Waiting Graves from Detective Comics #395. This story has immortal villains, hallucinations and, most importantly, Neal Adams artwork. After the break the guys look at The Demon of Gothos Mansion from Batman #227, which doesn’t have Neal Adams artwork but the Irv Novick pencils are pretty dang cool. This story features Batman trying to save Alfred’s niece from a cult and includes death traps and a ghost! Perfect for Halloween!
Next Time: It’s back to normal with Batman #312 and Detective Comics #484!
