The past couple of months I have mentioning an upcoming book that I have written a chapter (essay) for.
That book is pictured above with a provisional cover, to show you what the book is all about.
The book is titled 'Gotham City 14 Miles'.
This blog post is titled 'Mile Marker #10...'. That is a neat way of saying that Chapter (Essay) #10 has been hi-lited at the Facebook Fan Page for this book, as seen here: 'Gotham City 14 Miles'. And yeah...Mile Marker #10 is 'marking' my essay / chapter I submitted to this book!
The really cool thing is that even after my chapter is hi-lited...we've got 4 more Mile Markers to go to list all the chapters! Great promotional idea, Jim Beard! Jim is the Editor of this project, and asked me if I would like to get involved in submitting an essay.
Well...Do the photos that I've published above from the 1996 San Diego Comic Con and the 2010 Wizard World Anaheim give you the idea that the Batman TV Series from the mid 1960's holds some interest for me??? LOL!
The series does hold interest for me, and I've been embarking on covering more pop culture type of comic cons since last year. Mainly to see the stars of that TV Series to blog about here in my blog. I've already posted a few, and this is just one more in a series of those to be published before the 'Gotham City 14 Miles' is finally released at the end of 2010!
Here's the promo that Jim posted on yesterday's wall post at 'Gotham City 14 Miles' Facebook Fan Page:
"Mile Marker #10 - “Holy Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor!” - by Michael D Hamersky. Veteran blogger and comic book showman Hamersky address the topic of youthculture as presented in BATMAN '66, zeroing in on Robin's presence and education as well as other examples of youth in the show and adult perception of them. Hamersky uses personal anecdotes to skewer a few teen-age 1960s tropes".
Thanks Jim for the great write up! I do appreciate that, and I also look forward to reading the other 13 essays / chapters that are being shown as 'Mile Markers' at the Fan Page!
So, I'm going to wrap this up for now, by displaying a few links related to the Batman TV Show and / or TV Stars that had a role in the series:
