A bit of a triple whammy for me. Like all of us, I was obsessed with the Burton Batman film and one of the greatest heartbreaks of my life was my brother explaining Batman wasn't real. Second, the first girl to let me stick things in her head bought me The Dark Knight Returns (Tenth Anniversary Edition) for my 13th birthday and it is still one of my all-time favorite books. Lastly, for some reason my idiot five year old is madly in love with Bat-Mite, so, he's kind of her childhood hero right now. END.
