If you are in the So Cal area and like Batman, you might want to head by Vroman's Bookstore 7 PM tonight (June 24th), for a discussion, Q&A and signing with Dark Night: A True Batman Story writer and Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Paul Dini.
Dark Night is a very different Batman story focusing on the hero helps a discouraged man recover after a brutal attack that has left him unable to face the world. The new work is partly autobiographical. While at the height of popularity of Batman: The Animated Series, Dini was walking home one night when he was jumped and beaten within an inch of his life. By his own description, his recovery was hampered by the imagined antics of the villians he wrote for. But the author also imagined Batman at his side, helping him deal with the violence of the world.
