In the ninth episode of Gotham Outsiders: A Batman Bookclub, we discuss The Caped Crusade: Rise of Nerd Culture by Glen Weldon with professor at the University of Baltimore, poet, and bat-cademic, STEVEN LEYVA! We look at the entire Batman franchise history, examine how nerd culture has responded to it (specifically queer fans), and ponder the question... is there a one, "true" Batman?
