Cram Session: Death of the Family

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.

Sure, you’re reading Batman. Did you realize there are like 20 other issues that contain Death of the Family stories? How can you possibly understand the mind-bending reveal in Batman 17 without those volumes of additional content? Here’s how: we collected every single issue of the Death of the Family — all but the very last — so you can be totally, 100% caught up. (All of our coverage of individual issues can be found here.)

    • No joke, I maintain that chainsaw fights are the closest thing reality will ever see to a lightsaber duel. I desperately want to see a (fake) chainsaw-on-chainsaw fight. It would automatically make any movie THE BEST MOVIE EVER.

  1. This was fantastic, great job.

    …I hadn’t realized how many chainsaws were actually in this crossover. I’d also completely forgotten that the Suicide Squad crossover even happened. Why did I have to remember?

    • Hey thanks for that Piv. Given unlimited time, I would just make us do these things all day and all night. Someday, we’ll have a video team, and that’ll be that.

      What Drew and I were most struck by in writing this thing is how frequently these characters get knocked unconscious. Everyone gets it at least once (Jason gets it like 4 times).

      Also, we cut like 100 Suicide Squad jokes for time, but there easily could have been a 10-minute video making fun of SS and Catwoman. It would have been the easiest thing in the world.

    • Aw, shucks, thanks Zach! These videos are great because they’re such a fun collaboration. There’s some combo of writing and image cutting between Drew, Patrick, and I, narration by a college friend, music by a childhood friend, animation by a coworker friend…it’s the sort of creative teamwork that I just adore.
