The Dark Knight Dissected: An Interview With Batman Expert Dr. Will Brooker


Batman is the most enigmatic of all superheroes.  He exudes the most pathos, and invites the most analysis.  He’s also the most enduring.  He’s survived any number of incarnations over the past seventy three years, to varying degrees of success.  Amazingly, his mystique has remained intact throughout.  A number of different artists, all working in various mediums, have tried to pin him down.  None of them have been able to conclusively answer the million dollar question:  Who is Batman?
