Cosmic Treadmill, ep. 23 - Batman #681 (R.I.P.)

May 25, 2017

 As requested by esteemed comics enthusiast Matches Balone, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) read Batman #681 from 2008! They give some details on writer Grant Morrison and penciller Tony S. Daniel, and provide a synopsis of the entire Morrison run on Batman that led to this issue--and beyond! They also speculate on the true identity of Batman's nemesis Doctor Simon Hurt, a character we may never see again. Join us for the monumental death of Batman...then his resurrection, then his death again, and another resurrection!
