    On this episode of Batman Knightcast, Ryan Daly and Chris Franklin wrap up the two continuing story arcs they've covered since the beginning of the year.

    Batman Knightcast 35: DETECTIVE COMICS #402 and BATMAN #453

    Batman Knightcast 35: DETECTIVE COMICS #402 and BATMAN #453

    A new episode of Batman Knightcast: NOW WITH WINGS! Ryan Daly and Chris Franklin continue to chronicle two different trilogies starring the Caped Crusader and some of his deadliest rogues. First, in DETECTIVE COMICS #402, Batman encounters Doctor Langstrom again, whose monstrous transformation into the Man-Bat will bring him right into Batman's home. In BATMAN #453, The Riddler doubles down on the evil, endangering more babies and now dogs, too. What's his goal? Why is he so much crazier this time? And what does it have to do the Ceremony of the Bat? So many questions--that won't be answered until next episode.

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...
