Of all the writers who have tackled the Dark Knight over the past seven-and-a-half decades, none has written more individual issues, miniseries, or one-shots than Chuck Dixon -- he has over 300 Bat-stories under his belt.
I'm not exactly sure when Miles saw Batman for the first time, but the Caped Crusader's message resonated with this young boy so much that when asked by the Make-A-Wish Foundation what his wish would be, it was simple: "I want to be Batman."
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan gave us a trope we're used to seeing in tights and a hood, and dressed him like our high school chemistry teacher.
I was in the darkness. The story of Batman helped me realize I could wrap it around my arms like a security blanket. Or a cape. The yellow symbol on my chest was my light defended by a black creature more powerful than anything crime could throw at me.

Well, summer is over, folks, so now it's time to hang out with our real best friend: Television. I'm always interested in what could be the next big show, and even interested in a show that is not only big, but actually good.
