Batman 1943 - Chapter 14
October 15, 1943
"The Executioner Strikes"
As always, you can check out what writer Jim Beard and I thought of the chapter in our podcast. The player is attached here. But here are a few other thoughts I had as I rewatched it for the blog.
Have to admit, this is one of the better cliffhangers if not the best because you have a double peril. And it really looks like neither can easily be resolved by walking away. Of course, we do have Robin who finds Bruce (yes, he calls out in the bad guy's hideout, Bruce) and tosses him a crowbar to jam the closing walls, allowing Batman to climb out, by standing atop the knives. (I guess only the tips are sharp?). In any event, it's a very "in the nick of time" moment as the walls get pretty close.
Linda doesn't fare as well, unfortunately, and is turned into a zombie. Daka is not a happy man when he sees Batman once again has escaped, but he has an another trick as he mined the roof which should trap the two. It doesn't.
No sign of Batman in the back seat.
