This time out I present the second part of my Bat Villains Year One two-parter, which is really just me finally putting out audio from the now ended Bailey's Batman Podcast. Andy is still with me and we finish the series by looking at Batman: Shadow of the Bat Annual #3 (which has the origin of Poison Ivy), Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Annual #5 (which has the origin of Man-Bat), and Detective Comics Annual #8 (which has the origin of the Riddler). We also shake things up a bit and talk about Robin Annual #4 (which has the origin of...well, it has the origin of Robin). The show turns into the Chuck Dixon Appreciation Society for a bit, which is not a bad thing because Dixon's writing is awesome. Andy and I also discuss why the '90s was such a good decade for Batman and other fun stuff pops up along the way.
I also announce the new podcast Andy and I are putting out, which begins its run in May!
During the episode I read an email from Ryan Daly and mentioned the awesome show he co-hosts with Chris Franklin called Knightcast. You can find that over on the Fire and Water Podcast Network site by clicking here. On the same network you can find Ryan's amazing Secret Origins Podcast, which you can get to by clicking here.
While I'm pimping stuff check out Robert Meyer's podcast Robin: Everyone Loves the Drake over at The Batman Universe.
And be sure to subscribe to Andy's various podcasts, which include The Fantasticast, Hey Kids Comics, The Palace of Glittering Delights and Listen to the Prophets: A Deep Space Nine Podcast.
Next Time: The Irredeemable Shag stops by to discuss the greatest year in comics...1987!
