    #75: The Man Who Broke The Bat: An Interview with Chuck Dixon

    Your Dark Knight Archivist is back from her summer hiatus with new episodes! Londyn talks with prolific writer Chuck Dixon! Dixon has contributed so much to the Batman mythos, starting with Tim Drake's solo publication "Robin" to his run on Detective Comics introducing the character Stephanie Brown! Dixon also gives amazing insight into the creation of The Man Who Broke the Bat - Bane (my favorite!!) - and the crafting of the epic saga "Batman: Knightfall". Chuck Dixon helped make the modern Batman family foundation what it is today in current comics and other visual media.

Mediocre at best.

I continue to listen because of my love of Batman, but lately its becoming more and more difficult to make it through an entire episode. I dont have as big of a problem with Londyn as some reviewers, my issue id with the male cohost, Mason Booker. He should go back to just producing. The interviews tend to devolve into arguing about who is a better love interest for Batman, when in reality, who cares? I think my time has come to leave this cast for greener pastures. Good luck.

Great show with a very knowledgeable host

I’ve really like History of the Batman with Londyn. I’m not sure how I was first introduced to this podcast exactly. I am a big fan of Batman but I have never heard someone as knowledgeable on the subject as Londyn is. Her discussions are very in-depth. Londyn holds with her a lot of information about the Dark Knight and I don’t know how she remembers it also. This is a must listen for any Batman fan.
