This week we're joined by Dan Alonso, who is not a comedian but is comedian adjacent. What cool thing does Dan own? How would Dan describe Batman? What is his favorite Batman movie? Who does Brett prefer, Batman or Superman? Who was the original Atom? How much can comic books shape your sense of what's right and what's wrong? What Batman issues does Dan have in his collection? How much is too much to spend on an old comic book? What makes Detective Comics #33 special? How do you feel about heroes killing in the movies? Is it unrealistic that heroes in the comics don't kill? What happens in the comics when a character kills someone? Did the Lone Ranger kill people? Is The Batman Who Laughs too scary? Are new comics valuable at all? What's special about Flash #123? How about Brave and the Bold #28? Is there any money in speculating on comic books? How many is too many comics? Who is Dan's favorite Batman? How many superheroes has Ben Affleck portrayed?
