Sidekicked Issue #64 – Did DC Kill the Joke? (Spoiler review of Batman: The Killing Joke)

July 27, 2016 at 2:22 pm

Every major comic book hero has a handful of stories that define them for better or worse. For Batman, ‘The Killing Joke’ is one of those stories. DC has chosen to animate this iconic tale, reuniting many of the company’s star talent. But how well can a 48-page story transition into a feature length movie? David and Vincent aren’t laughing at this topic. Contains Spoilers!

David Gimnich

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

Vincent Powell

He's a mean, lean, nerding machine. A comic book reader since he was 6 years old, Vincent has developed a true passion for the inner-workings of what makes comics great. He has now been drafted by the Uncanny Pome Magazine to unleash his thoughts and views. Along with his partner, David, the two of them analyze the comic book industry for a new generation of fans.
