Culturezoo VIII: Batman, Year One

On this week’s Culturezoo, Levi and Rosalyn back away from Star Wars for a bit to discuss the 1987 mini-series comic, Batman: Year One, by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.

  • We open with a brief discussion of the various incarnations of Batman over the years.
  • We cover the plot of Year One including David Mazzucchelli’s gorgeous ink and Commissioner Gordon’s ridiculous inner monologues. Seriously he can’t shoot a gun at a target without having an existential crisis.
  • We finally opine about everything that’s right and wrong with this comic and specifically blame Frank Miller for taking the fun out of comics and making them stupid for the past thirty years.
  • We can’t resist indulging in a bit of Star Wars: The Force Awakens discussion to wrap things up.
