Dennis, Johnny, and Frankie review Dark Night: A True Batman Story, written by Paul Dini and illustrated Eduardo Risso. In this episode the gang discusses the non-Batman Batman story that was born from a brutal assault suffered by Dini; why Dennis’s son gets mad when he goes “off script” while playing together; if Paul Dini had feelings for Arleen Sorkin, the original voice of Harley Quinn, or not; the dichotomy of a person that is a highly successful in their professional life but failing in their personal life; and the brutal honesty Paul Dini uses in telling his story.
