This week we're talking about BATMAN!

With the upcoming Dark Knight Rises film in 2012, and the recent release of Batman: Arkham City, Wayne and The Boys try to understand why Batman has worked as a character for more than 70 years. Why has this property always been a huge success and been able to make profit?

From the black and white serial films and the campy Adam West show of the 1960s to the Dark mind of comic writer Frank Miller and the recent work of director Christopher Nolan, Batman has been a success across the board. Listen to the thoughts of three artists and why they think it has worked for so many years.
