Like many comic book fans, Batman has a special place in my heart. Growing up watching the 60s television series and the animated series based upon the tonally different Tim Burton films, showed the diversity in the character as his interpretation changed with the time.

When you’re a kid, there’s a lot to be scared of. From bullies, to homework, to even that one girl/boy you like for reasons beyond your limited life experiences most kids are little balls of fear at some points in their lives.

Let’s hope in kids. Continue reading
