Cram Session: Batman: Dark Knight 1-8

It can be hard to keep up with all the comics you love. But it’s damn near impossible to keep up with all the comics you’re interested in.

Retcon Punch got you covered.

We read a lot of good Batman books. We also read a lot of bad Batman books. This series falls firmly in the latter camp. It’s aggressively goofy and has more cameo appearances than a Robert Rodriguez movie. The Night of Owls issue was unremarkable, but not a total disaster. Catching up on the eight issues that came before it is totally unnecessary as there’s almost no over-lap in the characters, and a huge writer shake-up between issues 8 and 9. Still, there’s something charmingly dumb about this series, so it’s hard not to pay attention to it.

  1. It’s my fault. I told Patrick this title was so hilariously bad that we had to make a video for it.

  2. The Cram Sessions have been amazing. Thanks so much for putting them all together. I hope you continue to make them – a full NotO recap, once the final pieces are out, would be awesome.

    • We’ll have to see where all the pieces land, but I could see jamming all the events of the Night itself into one video after Batman finishes working his way through it. That’ll be a couple months from now. In the meantime, we will absolutely keep up the Cram Sessions. Thanks for watching!
