"Emperor Penguin" &
Published: August 21, 2013
The Penguin has his own little island nation in the form of an iceberg in Gotham Harbor. Because of this, he demands ransom for any cargo ship delivering supplies to Gotham City. And how does he manage to keep this little nation afloat? He joins forces with Mr. Freeze. Plus, Chandell is back in Gotham, under the spell of The Siren who has plans of her own.
John and Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension get together in the Batcave to review DC Comics' second issue of the 66 series run. Join them every Wednesday for a new review as they go through every issue of the run and every special edition story as well.
John and Dan talk about the different art styles of the two stories, the Filmation setup of the Penguin story with a neat 66 series ending, and the various cameos in the Chandell/Siren story.
Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
