    Batman Family Reunion #5 - A Princess, A Vagabond, and A Hound!

    At the Reunion this month, you can see Shawn and Paul try a double back flip - not a pretty sight!  But stick around for the goulash and the discussion about Batman Family #5, which has a great Batgirl-Robin team-up, the somewhat silly debut of the Signalman, and the first appearance of Ace, the Bat-Hound!

    Batman Family Reunion Episode #4 - Merry (Very) Christmas!

    Happy Holidays!  Robin and Batgirl are spending them apart, but you can join Paul Kien and Shawn M.

    But most importantly, we have a special guest star - Chris Franklin! He drops in to talk about one of his favorite holiday stories (but we are mostly glad that he brought the casserole made by Cindy!)

Holy awesome bat-man

Enjoying show hosts do a wonderful job can’t wait till the demon shows up I didn’t know he was part of the Batman family .

More Excellence from the Fire and Water Network

Just what I've come to expect from the F&W Network: Middle-age comics geeks exploring superhero nostalgia thoughtfully and with laugh-out-loud humor, and zero toxic fanboy nonsense. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Batman or comics.

Terrific Hosts

I only joined up after Ryan and Chris stopped doing an index and started doing just the comics they love, so I can't speak to the first episodes. Listening to these two talk about the Batman comics they enjoy (and commenting on the site) is like having a conversation with two knowledgeable, funny friends about your favorite Bat-comics. Also, their production values are excellent. Check out the prose stories! I hope this comes back soon, but Ryan and Chris are producing plenty of other great material in the meanwhile, so I can't complain too loudly...
