Some of My Friends Read Comics 174 – Batman: Dark Victory, Pt. 2 + The Korvac Saga #3 (Avengers #168)

In this week’s episode, we check out the origin of Batman’s famous sidekick, Dick Grayson aka the first Robin!

Wait, I thought we were reading the 2nd half of Batman: Dark Victory… this episode was supposed to be issues 7-13. We were gonna find out who the Hangman Holiday killer was and how it relates to Batman, Two-Face, and all the Gotham mob families.

Oh, that all happens too, I see.

We also continue the Korvac Saga with Avengers #168 in which Captain America acts like a major asshole.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 078 – Batman: Year 3 / 3rd Anniversary Celebration!

somfrc078

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.
