Episode 27: December 1940, Part 2

Welcome to episode 27 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 (or so) of Batman, be it comic books, television, movies, whatever, starting with his first appearance in 1939.

Michael Bradley and Michael Kaiser tackle part 2 of December 1940, and wrap up another year in the process!  This time Batman investigates “The Secret Cavern” when he takes on criminals with an overly convoluted scheme to rob a gold vault in Kentucky in Detective Comics #48.


Things We Learned:

  • Only criminals care about secret ways to get into gold vaults;
  • Batman does not work in New York City;
  • If a woman stands up Bruce Wayne, something is wrong;
  • Total Bat-Fails are really really funny;
  • Drilling through cave walls is really easy. And quiet.
