Fan Expo Canada 2016

So it turns out, neither myself or Denis had been to Fan Expo before, this year we changed that. What follows is a factual if not a little too shaky look at our day.

Recorded on Lumix GH4 and LG G4

While it might be known as one of the more important stories in the rich history of the character, Batman: The Killing Joke can be a dicey topic for some fans.
