BOY WHO LOVED BATMAN NEW REVISED ED
RED LIGHTNING BOOKS
(W) Michael Uslan
Growing up in New Jersey, Michael Uslan was obsessed with comic books. He'd be the first to grab the latest issues off the shelves of local stores. His favorite superhero was the brooding, crime-fighting vigilante, Batman. Despising the campy 1960s TV show, Uslan became determined to bring the real Batman - dark, serious, burdened by a tragic past - to the silver screen. Undeterred by Hollywood's initial lackluster response, Uslan went on to become Executive Producer on every modern Batman film, beginning with Tim Burton's Batman in 1989 to Christopher Nolan's celebrated Dark Knight trilogy and beyond. Warmly told and inspiring, Uslan's remarkable story is a testament both to the profound imaginative power of comic book heroes and the tenacity of the New Jersey boy determined to bring one of them to life.
