Welcome to the twenty-third 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 things return to normal and Mike and Andy travel back to the late seventies to talk about two solid Batman stories. In Batman #317 Robin continues to hang around and the Dynamic Duo take on the Riddler in a plot where…”shockingly”…the Riddler leaves clues and Batman and Robin must solve them to catch the villain. The commentary on this issue includes a lengthy discussion on where the Riddler fits into Batman’s rogues gallery. Then in Brave and the Bold #156 the Dark Knight teams up with Doctor Fate. Sort of. It’s complicated but still a good read.
Below is a gallery of images from the comic covered in this episode.
