When you think about it, Batman and the Ninja Turtles have a lot in common. They’re orphans, they’re well-trained in martial arts, they thrive in darkness. I think they’re all aliens too but I could be wrong about that.
We read their DC/IDW co-published 6-issue crossover from 2016.
Then, Peter Parker starts making that money in Amazing Spider-Man #2
For Valentine’s Day, we wanted to cover a comic book couple that we haven’t spent much time with: Dick Grayson & Barbara Gordon. Turns out Nightwing: Year One didn’t have quite as much Batgirl in it as we thought it would, but don’t worry…
In 1988, DC Comics urged the American people to exercise their right to vote by calling a 900 number and deciding the fate of Robin #2, Jason Todd.
The people were not kind to Jason.
We read “Batman: A Death in the Family” from issues 426-429 by Jim Aparo & Jim “Infinity” Starlin. Does anybody actually call him that? Anyways, this book doesn’t get very cosmic, but we do get the Joker/Ayatollah team-up we didn’t know we needed.
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!
75 years ago, if you had told us that a guy who runs around in clown makeup stealing jewels would one day become the most iconic supervillain in comics, then we’re afraid we wouldn’t have heard you because we weren’t born yet.
In this very special episode all about The Joker, we take a look back at his first appearance in Batman #1 and then read what has been called the greatest Joker story of all time, Alan Moore’s controversial The Killing Joke. Join us, won’t you?
In 1997, frustrated with struggling sales, DC cancelled all four of their Justice League titles and brought the original “Big 7” back to the team for the first time in a decade. But that wasn’t enough, they also brought on superstar writer Grant Morrison to turn the reboot into a huge bestseller.
In this episode of SOMFRC, Vince, Chris, and Kia take a look at JLA #1-4 to see what the hype was all about, compare the JLA to the Avengers, and explore Morrison’s jump from writing counter-cultural indie comics to superhero icons.
