The Caped Crusader. The World’s Greatest Detective. The Gotham Guardian. The Dark Knight. Bats.
He’s known by many names, but everyone knows him as Batman. Bruce Wayne takes on this identity to solve the city’s mysteries and deal with its denizens of criminals and underground organizations. Thanks to his many vehicles and arsenal, Batman is able to carry himself through thick and thin, though at times he may have some enlisted help.
This week, we’re celebrating Batman Day, which happens on September 16th. We’ll be listening to tracks from several Batman-related games: a game based on a movie, a follow-up to the first game, and a series centered on Arkham. We’ll also have covers and remixes to follow each track.
Prepare to don the caped coif and tighten the utility belt as we follow Batman on his journey for justice, redemption, and meaning.
