Welcome back to I Am Gotham, the show that explores Bat-family history from 1939 to the present. In this episode, Martin sits down to address some of the controversies cropping up around the Batman books. First up, a discussion about the petition over whether the Joker should be made gay. Then, people are up in arms over the similarities between Batman #39 (2016) and Action Comics #761 (1938). Finally, Batman is getting a new costume and people are...confused? Thanks for listening!
