The Penguin is released from prison and comes up with a perfect scheme for his next crime - let Batman figure it out for him.  Can Batman figure this out before it's too late?

Wonder Woman, Star Trek, Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman, and The Omen - for a poor kid growing up in Boston (where there wasn't much to do except watch TV or go outside and find trouble), they were doorways into the worlds of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics.  And they remain the cornerstones of Paul K. Bisson's inner Fanboy.


Today, Paul is an actor, writer, independent media producer, and all-around Geek.  He still collects comics (mostly DC and definitely Wonder Woman); he founded the member-rich Bionic Fan Network  (http://www.bionicfans.net) and an ambitious online Bionic encyclopedia, The Bionic Wiki (http://www.bionic.wikia.com); he's the webmaster of The OmenChronicles, the only fansite devoted to the Omen film series (http://www.omenchronicles.com), and he's developing http://www.fancommentary.com -- a social networking site where people can upload their own audio commentaries for their favorite movies and TV shows.


Paul is currently the narrator for Food Network's Restaurant Stakeout, the co-host of Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast, and the voice of The Chronic Rift Podcast.

As with the first episode, William Dozier went not only to the comics for inspiration, but from recent (1965) issues as the issue 169 story, "Partners in Plunder" is used.

Legendary screen actor Mickey Rooney was the producers first choice to play The Penguin, but scheduling conflicts wouldn't allow him to participate, so the role went to Burgess Meredith.
