New York Comic Con 2019

 

See you at New York Comic Con! I’m only going to be there Saturday, but I’ll see you at the Insight Editions booth (#1946) as I sign copies of Batman: The Definitive History of The Dark Knight in Comics, Film, and Beyond!

Batman at Comic-Con!

Had a great time at the 50th San Diego Comic-Con! I spent most of my time at the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth, raising funds and awareness about the museum, but also talked a lot about Batman, as we’re gearing up for the release of Batman: The Definitive History of The Dark Knight from Insight Editions this fall.

Photo #1 is me at the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth at Comic-Con, photo #2 is me at the DC Comics booth, where they had a preview copy of the book on prominent display. Really pleased with all the effort that DC and Insight have put into promoting the book.

 

I also spent some time at the Comic-Con Museum’s Batman exhibit, and gave a slideshow presentation on Batman’s 80-year history, followed by a quick tour of the museum.

A whirlwind, as Comic-Con always is, but lots of fun. I’m hoping to have a full slate of convention appearances this fall, so if you’re a convention organizer, bookstore manager, librarian, educator, or have any other reason to bring a Batman historian to town, please drop me a line!
