Growing up in New Jersey in the 1950s, Batman-obsessed Michael Uslan had to come to terms with the disappointing truth that he was not a super hero. He didn t meet any of the criteria: He wasn t orphaned at a young age. He didn t possess an armory full of Batarangs, a loyal butler, or a sports car that doubled as a tank. He would never become a crime-fighting vigilante. But even without the dark past and high-tech gadgetry, Uslan accomplished something even better: He transformed a super-human passion for comic books into the career of a lifetime. The Boy Who Loved Batman is a coming of age story of a kid from New Jersey who used his childhood love of comics to help create the Batman franchise that we know and love today. Along the way he shares his many entertaining adventures, from teaching the first accredited college course on comics in 1972 to his days as a Junior Woodchuck at DC Comics and the ten years he spent fighting to get Batman produced. This is as unlikely a Hollywood story as you'll find; behind all the laughs and adventures from Bayonne, New Jersey, to New York, Hollywood, and back there's a little kid in a Batman cape who knows that with the right amount of passion, invention, and unrelenting determination, life can be even more amazing than a comic book hero s . . .
