I became a Batfan as a child growing up in the 80’s watching reruns of the 60’s Batman series. From '89 through the mid 90’s Batman solidified his spot with the classic Tim Burton/ Michael Keaton/ Jack Nicholson “Batman” and BTAS, even now when I read a dialog bubble for Batman the only voice I hear is Kevin Conroy.
I like other characters and titles, but no one is better than the Bat!
I didn’t read many comics growing up. It was easier to watch the episodes on tv. Now as an adult I take a lot more time reading the stores. Like many movies based on books, the book is better. I’m just glad this platform has come about to give me the opportunity to read the breadth of DC comics tittles that I may not have the chance to read otherwise.
