    Great episode! Thank you so much for taking so long to read all of the listener feedback. It's very much appreciated! I was curious to hear your how satisfied with the current characterization of Batman? What elements do you want them to bring in the Bat titles or take away and do you care how it would effect continuity? I don't know what's with me lately, but something really snapped when I read the last issue of Death of the Family. Forget about me saying I want reprocussions anymore. The way Snyder wrote Batman in that last issue really got under my skin. I already wrote about it on the main cast, so I don't want to bring anymore negative,but now it's been effecting my enjoyment of Snyder's run. It made him unlikable the way he's wrote him like he's got this special relationship with the Joker that he wants to continue, rather than trying to help him like Killing Joker. And now with Batman and Red Robin 19 and Batman and Red Hood 20, Peter Tomasi's portrayal has made him really unlikeable. I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on #20, because I was really hate how Peter Tomasi's Batman treated Jason. Even when Batman was at it's most campiness like in the 60's or trippy like in Grant Morrison's run, or like your recently reviewed Gotham by Gaslight, I would refer to the character as Batman. It doesn't seem like what Batman is to me. It's kind of like when Bane was written like a meathead or Spider-man sold his marriage to the devil. As much as I disliked it, I'd still say Batman was transported through time by Darkseid and then came back and became like Iron Man and created Batman Inc.  It just seems devoid of anything what the character means to me, therefore it's hard for me to refer to the character as "Batman", and not whatever author's name Batman. I'm probably way overreacting, but it's because the character means so much to me.

    Thanks again. Keep up the awesome work!
