Bibliodiscoteque Ep 38 - Batman 1972

  • Last week, artist Francesco Francavilla (The Black Beetle, Green Hornet) released a series of images for a re-imagined Batman – one patrolling the streets of a 1972 Blaxspoitation Gotham.

    Within hours, roughly three thousand people visited his tumblr and other site – Pulp Sunday - see what the fuss was all about. No one was disappointed. This is one of those revisions that is so picture perfect its simply cries out for a series.

    Now DC, I swear, if you publish this book I will buy it. In every format possible. In fact, the teaser images were so amazing that I shelved this month’s original podcast – Colin MacInnes’ mod classic Absolute Beginners – and pumped this show out. I love this episode. I love that Fransesco Francavilla sparked such a visceral response from me. I hope you love it as well.

    This alone will make the book worth every penny
