TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3247:

Holy Roadmaps!  It's True!

This is the week that YOU can start pre-ordering YOUR copy of the upcoming book, 'Gotham City 14 Miles' at YOUR Local Comic Book Shop, (LCBS)!

I've been blogging about this book now for what seems quite a while...(Click here for the almost 500 links on Google!)

That's because 1 of the 14 Essays, (Mile Markers), being printed in the book is mine! (Mile Marker #10!)

So the Editor of this book, Jim Beard, started posting recently that pre-orders can be made at your LCBS starting this week using the Diamond Distributors Previews magazine.  It's easy to do, if you have a LCBS near you.  If not...then I suggest you check out the Facebook Fan Page for Gotham City 14 Miles to see how you can do so...PLUS be interactive with others who are excited this book is finally coming to press!

Matter of fact, there have been several write-ups already this week, and several people have forwarded them on to me.

Below is just one that seemed to make a big stir, so I am just posting the first paragraph of it here, with a link for YOU to read the full article from the Toledo Free Press. Written by Jeff McGinnis:

 “Biff! Bang! Pow!”  So read the screen as the Caped Crusader struck a blow for justice against an evil villain and his henchmen. For an entire generation of fans, those words and others would forever be connected to Batman, thanks to his wildly popular 1960s television incarnation." (For the rest of this great article, click here...)

I have already mentioned my multiple 'plugs' for this book, so I'll just leave you to your own devices to check out the links here that can be found on Google.  As you can see, my earlier blogs have been picked up by multiple re-posters.

So I'll leave with you something new this blog post...Here's the 'Table of Contents':

Mile Marker No. 1: “Bats in Their Belfries — The Proliferation of ‘Batmania’” by Robert Greenberger. Covers the genesis of the show and the explosion of Batmania.

Mile Marker No. 2: “Batman — From Comics Page to TV Screen” by Peter Sanderson. Delves deep into “Batman’s” comic book roots.

Mile Marker No. 3: “Such a Character — A Dissection and Examination of Two Sub-Species of Chiroptera homo sapiens” by Jim Beard.

Mile Marker No. 4: “Notes on Bat-Camp” by Tim Callahan. An effort to answer that age-old question: “Was ‘Batman’ truly camp?”

Mile Marker No. 5: “Aunt Harriet’s Film Decency League” by Becky Beard.

Mile Marker No. 6: “POW! – Batman’s Visual Punch” by Bill Walko. Looks into the impact of the show’s vibrant visual design.

Mile Marker No. 7: “Known Super-Criminals Still at Large” by Chuck Dixon. Compares and contrasts TV versions with comic book portrayals.

Mile Marker No. 8: “May I Have This Batdance?” by Michael S. Miller.

Mile Marker No. 9: “The Best Dressed Women in Gotham City” by Jennifer K. Stuller. Presents a compelling argument for its female denizens and their place in “Batman.”

Mile Marker No. 10: “Holy Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor!” by Michael D Hamersky. Addresses the topic of youth culture as presented in “Batman.”

Mile Marker No. 11: “Gotham City R&D” by Michael Johnson.

Mile Marker No. 12: “Theatre of the Absurd – ‘Batman: The Movie, 1966’” by Rob Weiner. Rolls film on the 1966 feature film.

Mile Marker No. 13: “Jumping the Bat-Shark” by William Patrick Murray. Delves into the third season of “Batman.”

Mile Marker No. 14: “Some Days You Just Can’t Get Rid of a Bomb” by Paul Kupperberg. The legacy beyond its original broadcast.

Afterword by Jeff Rovin, co-author of Adam West’s “Back to the Batcave,” offers a few personal anecdotes about the show and working with West.

Episode Guide by Joe Berenato. A rundown of episodes, with airdates and fun facts.

Again, when YOU go to your LCBS, or tell your friends that this is what you want for the upcoming Holiday Season...This is the info that you will need to tell the LCBS that you want to pre-order!

Gotham City 14 Miles / ISBN 9780578064611 / $22.95 MSRP

Of course I'll let you know more as the weeks go on about this book.  Heck, I'm anxiously awaiting for my copy to arrive!
