The Boy Who Loved Batman: A Memoir provides the true story of a comics- obsessed kid who came of age in the 1950s and transformed his passion to the Hollywood screen. Michael Uslan's passion for comics and superheroes didn't end with adulthood: instead he transformed it to create the modern Batman franchise. Chapters document this process in a pick highly recommended for collections strong in comics, Hollywood film, and autobiography alike.
