That Time On...

That Time On Batman #3

Welcome back to Gotham City, and Word of the Nerd‘s irregular feature, That Time On Batman!

Looking at the oddball moments in the adventures of The Batman throughout the different media and continuities, this #ThatTimeOnBatman focuses on the Spirit of the Goat episode of Fox’s Gotham, written by Ben Edlund (creator of The Tick).

In Smallville they were fond of scenes where the vast exterior of Luthor Mansion was shown but the interior action was shot in one drawing-room for budget concerns.  It seems like the same thing is happening in Gotham with stately Wayne Manor, but there might be a plot-driven reason for this…

About the author

Brent Kincade

Brent Kincade was born under the sign of Pertwee and has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)

His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.

Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".

He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent is the creator of #ThatTimeOnDrWho, #ThatTimeOnStarTrek, #ThatTimeOnStarWars and co-creator of "The Magic Cantina". Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
