When Joseph Illidge wants to talk to you about Batman, you talk about Batman. Because in addition to starting his career at the creative melting pot that was Milestone Media and honing his editorial chops at such publishers as Valiant, Archia, Lion Forge, and now A Wave Blue World, he was one of the Batman group editors from 1998 to 2001. He was there for No Man’s Land, the launch of the Birds of Prey ongoing series, the introduction of Cassandra Cain as Batgirl, the Greg Rucka/Shawn Martinbrough experimental Detective Comics run, and more.

For his fifth appearance on the show, Illidge drops by the underground recording studio to chat with Greg about all things Bat: from that No Man’s Land tour of duty, to Birds of Prey, to Batgirls Gordon and Cain. He also unpacks last week’s tweet about why the time has come for a black Batman.  All that and more on today’s episode!

Greg Matiasevich

Greg Matiasevich has read enough author bios that he should be better at coming up with one for himself, yet surprisingly isn't. However, the years of comic reading his parents said would never pay off obviously have, so we'll cut him some slack on that. He lives in Baltimore, co-hosts (with Mike Romeo) the Robots From Tomorrow podcast, writes Multiversity's monthly Shelf Bound column dedicated to comics binding, and can be followed on Twitter at @GregMatiasevich.
