CLASSIC UBA #2 - Detective 411 & Batman 232

Some of our early episodes have fallen off the iTunes feed, so here is another of our old classic episodes, back when Em did her solo show. It's Uncovering the Bronze Age #2!

-------------------------------------------------------
Em dives back into her coverage of the Bronze Age as she discusses two stories featuring The Dark Knight Detective, and the introduction of two favorite Batman antagonists.

"Into the Den of the Death-Dealers," by Dennis O'Neil, Bob Brown, & Dick Giordano, from Detective Comics #411.

AND

"Daughter of the Demon," by Dennis O'Neil, Neal Adams, & Dick Giordano, from Batman #232.

Can Batman topple an international crime ring, headed by a villain with a ridiculous name? Where exactly is Thailayinam? Will Batman be willing to work with the clearly villainous Ras al Ghul to rescue Robin and Talia?
