JLA 14 Rock of Ages CoverThis week on Fat Man on Batman, Kevin Smith tries something new in lieu of having on a guest. Rather than the usual interview with a Batman writer/artist/creative, Smith reads one of his favorite Batman stories – JLA #14 (1997) written by Grant Morrison. It follows the “Rock of Ages” story line, where Darkseid has taken over Earth and Lex Luthor has formed “The Injustice Gang. to take on the JLA” For those who haven’t read the series, and plan to some day, be warned of spoilers.

Smith describes the issue as, “the best that a comic book can be,” and, “The best that a portrayal of Batman can be.”
