Written by Tyler Lamb. Recently I went to the world tour arena show Batman Live. After seeing this play, I realized that I have experienced the character of Batman on every single medium he has been offered upon. This got me thinking, which one is the best? Of course, the comics are the classic source material, but I would be lying if I said they were all good. The same goes for the movies and especially th ...
