History of Comics On Film reveals where Batman movies really begin !

See the adventures of the Dark Knight Detective put on the silver screen for the first time and the influence this serial had on the comic books that followed !
In the fourth part of an ongoing series that focuses on the History of Comic Books, producer Derek Crabbe views comics history through the lens of those comic book characters that are lucky enough to be adapted for both movies and television.

If you enjoy the escapades of Cinemassacre or Red Letter Media you'll probably enjoy this vast project which continues with the 1943 Columbia Pictures film serial of the caped crusader, Batman!

This is great stuff. I love all this history stuff, Just like they have on the Anime Dvd's. Ex. I didn't know the Co-Creator of the Lie Detector had a hand creating Wonder Woman--Lasso of Truth Etc.

I think Derek Crabbe has done an amazing job with this series and I'm excited we're posting a new installment each week.

He's kind of inspiring me to try and do the same sort of thing on some other subjects.

You should definitely do something Ed. I think we have similar taste in Science Fiction, at least based on the V and POTA articles I have read of yours.

Thanks for your work on this Derek. I'd heard of this one but have never seen it.
