Episode 25: Annuals and Sequels

Welcome to the twenty-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.  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 the guys review at the first annuals of the two animated tie-in books they’ve been looking at over the past year.  Batman Adventures Annual #1 turns the title into an anthology book as Batman examines his rogues gallery and wonders if he ever came close to having one of them walk the straight and narrow.  Then, in Batman and Robin Adventures Annual #1, we are treated to a sequel to the greatest Batman film ever released into theaters.  No, not Dark Knight.  Not 1966’s Batman: The Movie.  Not even the 1989 Batman film.  No, this story is the sequel to Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and features the return of Bruce’s lost love, Andrea.

It’s pretty keen.  Then again all of the stories are pretty keen.  This was a good episode for Batman stories.

Below is a gallery of images from the books discussed in this episode.
