It’s our 3-year anniversary, so we had to continue the tradition by reading Batman: Year 3 from 1989 by Marv Wolfman with art by Pat Broderick.
No really, we had to, we’re thankful there’s no Year Four.
Originally from issues 436-439, it appears to be a story retelling Robin’s origin. And then they pasted the “Year Three” title on it. Then they changed “Three” to a “3” for some reason. Look, we don’t know.
Next Time – Annihilation: Conquest
Batman’s not the only hero to get a Year One.
This time around, the gang reads Robin: Year One to see how it compares to the Frank Miller classic.
We’ll discuss how easy it is to mix up all the Robins, the merits of attacking random little boys on the street, and whether or not Two-Face has a law degree.
On this week’s Batman Super-Spectacular, we rank all nine of the theatrically released Batman films! That means the 60’s Batman: The Movie, the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher quartet, and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, plus the animated Mask of the Phantasm.
Our panel of Bat-experts decides the best Batman movie and the worst Batman movie. We also decide the best & worst Batman actor and the best & worst Bruce Wayne actor (and they’re not necessarily the same!). And…find out which Batman movie taught Richard about the existence of the United Nations!
Also mentioned in this episode is the always hilarious Bat Labels Twitter account.
