Gotarugrat ,

A fun analysis of a neglected era

The 1970s era of BATMAN tends to fall between two stools . It’s neither the Campy Crusader of the 1960s, nor the Frank Miller inspired Dark Knight of the 80s ( and beyond)...
But it’s my childhood era of BATMAN.
Mego Toys,Superfriends , Colorforms & Power Records kept the torch lit for Bat fans and is a worthy subject of this excellent podcast! Be nice to Bat Mite, though. He’s only trying to help!

Love it!

A total delight to listen to. Host JB knows his stuff, and it’s really cool to dive into a kind of forgotten era of Batman.
