Holy crap, Batman!

The caped crusader swoops in for a live show in October.

In the late ’70s, I once saw Batman and Robin appear at some circus at The Myriad. It was just two nobodies in costume as part of the show, but I was a first grader and, therefore, didn’t care. I was such a Batman nut back then that when one day, when our family sheepdog was about to die, I chose to watch that afternoon’s rerun of the Adam West TV show instead of saying goodbye.

Yes, I’m heartless. This has not changed.

Now I have a heartless first grader of my own, and sure enough, he flipped when I told him that the Batman Live worldwide arena tour is coming to town. More specifically, to Chesapeake Energy Arena for eight performances, Oct. 10-14. I mean, take a look:



It’s like a mix of Cirque du Soleil, the Joel Schumacher movies and hallucinogens.

Tickets are already on sale by calling 800-745-3000. —Rod Lott

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1

And stumbles.


Action

Rod Lott
In 1986, writer and artist Frank Miller changed the comic-book industry forever with the four-issue series that became the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. Its sour disposition and gritty attitude was arguably the darkest depiction of Batman the world had seen, paving the way for the caped crusader’s move to big-screen blockbuster three years later.
