Friendship All-Stars


BTAS gets its Frank Miller, Dick Sprang and Bill Finger on as I tackle the fan-favorite anthology episode “Legends of the Dark Knight.” First Nick Mundy (Conan, Comedy Central’s Nothing to Report, Screen Junkies, Wonder Twins) digs into the episode and how this cartoon introduced him to The Dark Knight Returns and discusses the logistics of a building that houses giant musical instruments. Then I speak with comic historian and graphic designer Arlen Schumer about his love of the Fleischer Superman, the enduring storytelling of BTAS and what it was like to design merchandise for the show. Also featuring Jacob Reed (Before You Were Funny, Buzzfeed) as The Ol’ Podspector. Sponsored by Police Blimps! Rate + Subscribe in iTunes. More at
