268 – Batman: Ego

Batman: Ego

We conclude our tribute to Darwyn Cooke by reading “Batman: Ego.” In this tightly-written book, we see Batman returning to the cave after a long fight and a jarring encounter with a low-level thug only to be confronted with hallucinations of self-questioning. We talk about the Batman/Bruce balancing act, the depth of the Batman character, and the sacrifices of Bruce Wayne.

Plus: Warcraft expansion spoilers! The Ego talk begins at about 10 minutes in.
