The eightieth anniversary of Robin continues here on the show as this episode goes back to school. We are joined by special guest Professor Alan Middleton and he is handing out detention slips to Rob with Detention Comics #1 (1996) from Denny O’Neil and Norm Breyfogle! Follow along to learn why the Professor chose this book and what the idea of Batman and Robin still means today. School is in session!
In 1982, Rob received a book that changed his life. The book and cassette set was called “Batman and Robin, the Teen Wonder: The Case of the Laughing Sphinx.” While Batman was a big deal, Robin is what stood out and connected him to the world of Batman. Then came Batman (1989) and how could you not love Batman? Shortly after joining TBU to do some action figure reviews, he got the podcasting bug and since then has launched two shows on the TBU Podcast Network. He also plays drums and collects comics, CDs, vinyl, and KISS merchandise.
