Happy Birthday, Batman

I have mostly foresworn superheroes because they seem to have lost their way, like US.

But I’ll always step up for Batman, the dark cipher who rises with our aspirations and sinks with our capitulations, as I did recently with comics lifer, Gail Simone. In honor of his 80th birthday, please check out some greatest hits from my extensive Batman beat, featuring interviews with other lifers, like Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, and more.
