Review of Hulu’s “Batman and Bill”

MasonicVader here with another review, this time about a phenomenal documentary about a real-life David vs Goliath story. A documentary that rewrites an origin story of one our most beloved superheroes: Batman. Not the story that we all know about Bruce Wayne/Batman, but of who created that origin. I give you Hulu’s 2017 documentary Batman and Bill. For 75 years when we watched, read, or listened to anything about Batman, you would always see Batman by Bob Kane.

Sure, I’ve read a bunch of Walking Dead, continuing stories from Buffy and Angel, all of Preacher (after watching the first season of AMC’s awesome show), but only after being drawn in by other media. If I like a property enough, I’ll go back and check out it’s origins. Looks like I need to check if Amazon has these books on Kindle.
