Big thank you to Dustin, and everyone at TheBatmanUniverse.net for two tickets to see Batman: Live at my chosen venue, The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow on August the 3rd of this year, which was the opening night, for Batman: Live here in Glasgow.
Batman: Live is the retelling of the origin of Dick Grayson, from boyhood acrobat, to the boy wonder. A classic story that anyone who has seen the movie “Batman Forever” can tell you about, so it was certainly a mighty task…

This month finds Peter Tomasi, not quite fresh off his Brightest Day run, taking over Batman and Robin, along with Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray on art duty.
The story opens with the family, minus Bruce, in the kitchen, preparing smoothies and popcorn, clearly getting ready to spend a night in. The family makes its way to the den, where a large screen TV is set up and ready to be used. Out of nowhere, Bruce appears and commandeers the remote, setting…

Batman Orphans part two opens exactly where part one left off. Bruce is suffering the effects of the fear toxin, still envisioning his parents being gunned down in a filthy alley. Unfortunately, Samantha Locke is on scene to see the whole thing happen. In his vision, Bruce is dressed in the Robin outfit and Samantha is playing the part of Joe Chill. He begins to attack her, before Sam Jackson fights him off.
Fortunately, Alfred intervenes and takes Bruce away, though not before Samantha exposes the…

After watching the new Brave and the Bold episode, the chill of the night, I wanted to express my opinion on the latest installment of the series. I have probably been the greatest critic of the show on the podcast, but I have also ensured the show receives praise from me when they've impressed me.

So another week has past and we move into the very last week of September. We know that October will not only bring cold weather, but also a ton of new Batman books. But today isn’t October, so let’s see what September ends with.
Batman: The Black Glove
