BTW, I've already blogged about this upcoming comic con before, but my main reason on choosing Adam West / Batman / the Batmobile to feature here today is because....
Of the upcoming Batman Book that is being published this Fall of 2010 with a chapter that I have written in it. The title of the book is: 'Gotham City 14 Miles'! The publication is a book of essays on the Batman TV Show from the 1960's by multiple authors, and it will be published by 'Sequart'! That would be the Sequart Research & Literacy Organization!

Okay... enough about me, LOL! I just wanted to let you know about the 'connection' as I have been dropping 'hints' in this blog for a while. My thanks to Jim Beard, Editor of the book for the original invite to participate in the project!
