Batman faces a showdown when
Shame arrives in Gotham City! This swaggering
cowboy is after… hot rod parts? This somewhat odd arc by
Stanley Ralph Ross is full of references to both
the old west and drag racing; what’s going on here? Looking at
Cliff Robertson’s first Batman appearance, we also
touch on the mysterious Roy Gleason, several ways
that times have changed since this one was shot, the problem of the
cowboy being a bad guy, and THE one and only Little Old
Lady from Pasedena!
Plus: a country-fried cover of the Batman theme, Batman/Room 222 links, and… is Batman “bigger than Jesus” now?
