Good episode? Give it some love!
After the cancellation of the Batman 1966 live action television series, DC Comics wanted to bring Batman comics back to its gothic roots Bob Kane and Bill Finger created in 1939, issuing in the Bronze Age of Comics in the 1970s. One of the essential tales in this era is Dennis O'Neil's "Tales of the Demon", introducing Ra's al Ghul and Talia al Ghul. On this week's episode, Londyn and co-host / engineer Mason Booker dive into this story arc in 'Batman' and 'Detective Comics' from 1971 to 1972 introducing the Demon's Head and the Daughter of the Demon, the relationship established between Bruce and Talia (Mason's #TeamTalia!) and how these stories returning the Dark Detective define the Batman of this decade. Join us on this fun journey with our hero in the groundbreaking 1970s!
