We are NOT going to review Dark Knight here, since it is one of the most discussed comics ever. We will, however, be putting it into context both when it comes to sales as well as its place in comics and pop culture history. Cory!! and Joe were there when it came out, in different ways, and they talk about that as well!
- They discuss early pandemic shortages
- What were Batman sales like before Dark Knight?
- How the format of the comic was new and changed comics printing
- Why were comic shop owners mad at the collected edition of the complete Dark Knight series?
- How did Dark Knight Returns tie into the death of Robin
- Dark Knight start the “Grim and gritty” movement in comics in the late 80’s?
- All of this, the usual shenanigans and much, much more!
