A refreshing take on the Batman catalog

Michael and some English guy dig up the unsung tales of Batman - and I’m here for it. Thoughtful, positive, analitical, and fair! Great show!

Great listen

A terrific podcast if you were a fan of Batman back when he wasn’t a miserable leg-breaker. The host are very knowledgeable and clearly enjoy each other’s company. Michael and Andrew really welcome in the listener like a comfy easy chair. Every time Michael mentions Walden Books it instantly brings me back to my childhood in Lancaster, PA! Keep up the great work, guys.

My favorite bat comics podcast

This retrospective of overlooked highlights of the Bat canon is my favorite Batman comics podcast. It’s thoroughly researched and well produced and presented by 2 incredibly knowledgeable hosts. I learn something new on every listen and really appreciate that. If you’re looking to dig deep on some of the best Bat books ever published listen in.
