How Did Bruce Wayne Kill Alfred Pennyworth? Batman #83 Spoilers

How Did Bruce Wayne Kill Alfred Pennyworth? Batman #83 Spoilers

Pennyworth is by far and away the best adaptation of a comic book into a TV show to date. A crazy remix of Michael Caine‘s Alfie and The Ipcress Files with both The Prisoner and The Avengers TV shows, as well as an alternate history that has more in common with Joker than with Gotham […]

The Return of Kite-Man in Tom King’s Batman
