E&E #014 - Anatomy of a Collection, pt 2

Alan's Eyes & Ears #014 - Anatomy of a Collection, pt 2

In this second episode of this podcast mini-series, Alan continues his attempt to talk about EVERY comic in his collection. Picking up where he left off last time, he talks about Batman and related comics, Blitzkrieg, Camelot 3000, Blackhawk, the legendary Captain Canuck ... and more!

What embarrassing bits about his comic book life does the Professor reveal? Is there a significant difference between which comics end up on the bookshelf versus the boxes in the basement? Just how inconsistent is he about books related to Batman. And just WHO is the actual world's greatest detective?
