Episode 10: Year in Review 1939

Welcome to episode ten of Legends of the Batman, the show covering everything Batman — from the beginning! The show’s premise is a simple one. Each episode, we cover a month of Batman, be it comic books, television, movies, whatever, starting with his first appearance in 1939.

This week, Michael Bradley and Michael Kaiser take a break from their normal monthly coverage format to look back at their first completed year, going over the pros and cons, the ups and downs, the lefts and rights of all the Batman material released in 1939. And at the end of the show, the two give their votes for the bests and worsts of the year!

    I just finished listening to your 1939 Year-in-Review episode and I absolutely loved it. Wrapping up the year in Batman and incorporating real-life events, entertainment highlights, and music of the era was a brilliant idea. As someone with an interest in history, particularly the mid-20th century, I may be a little biased, but regardless, I’m looking forward to many more “Years-in-Review”. Along with your regular episodes, of course. Keep up the great work. It’s been motivating me to open up my Golden Age Batman books again.
