TV Review: Comic Book Men S4E6 Bat Prints

comic book menIn this episode of Comic Book Men, Walt considers buying hand and footprints of Adam West and Burt Ward from the “Batman” TV series. Then, a customer sells a rare set of “Star Wars” comic strips.

In the sixth episode of Comic Book Men, things get back to basics, as there’s no campy adventures, or trips places, this is just simple people coming in to sell items and a bit of history of things. And when Comic Book Men gets simple, it also gets much stronger.

This episode has an interesting mix of items including the comics, some Batman memorabilia, and a G.I. Joe toy. Mixed throughout is the usual jokes and ribbing that makes these guys seem like fun folks to hang out with. Each item has a nice explanation as to what it is, and why it’s significant. Yes, the show then comes off as a Pawn Stars for geeks, but it’s the jokes and humor that makes it stand apart. There’s also the fact I actually like this stuff.

Overall, the episode is a back to basics one after some recent episodes that had a theme throughout, and that’s not a bad thing.

Overall rating: 7
