167 - It Was In The Happy Meals - Week of 7/3/19

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Tim Burton's Batman on or near the 30th anniversary of its release. This is one we all remember, including all of the merch, all of the cultural impact, and all of the controversy. There's clearly no such thing as an easy Batman, but we pull out some opinions on this one, along with a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual goofy behavior and our picks of the week.
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
What we're up to this week:
Music documentaries - one on the Beatles (not so good) and one on Black Sabbath (better but kind of weirdly dated)
Not much this week - deferring to Les for his report (we were giving him a hard time pre-show)
Traveled to San Antonio last week for a big "celebrity" con - lots of fun, long hours, and rubbing of celebrity elbows 🙂 
Discovered Pluto TV this week - latched onto the Classic Doctor Who channel

Sorry about the sound quality - I cut as much of the storm noise out as I could, but the way we record makes it tough. Also, I can't believe we're still having spring storms this late in June here, but I guess stranger things have happened.
Picks for the week of 7/3:
Bettie Page: Unbound #2 (Dynamite)
Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds #1 (DC/Young Animal)
Analog #6 (Image)
Ignited #2 (Humanoids)
Dreadstar Rare Limited Definitive Edition Signed by Jim Starlin (Dynamite)
Lois Lane #1 (DC)
Postal: Deliverance #1 (Image)
Star Wars: Target Vader #1 (Marvel)
Honorable Mention: Cons de Fee: The Erotic Art of Wallace Wood (Fantagraphics)
It's official now that DC is shutting down the Vertigo imprint - it's been a huge influence over the years and will be sorely missed
