Wednesday, September 29th greets the arrival of the October issue of PREVIEWS in comic shops everywhere, wherein you will be able to pre-order GOTHAM CITY 14 MILES.
For those of you new to the party, Gotham City 14 Miles offers the 1960s Batman TV series the critical reevaluation it deserves. Its essays examine Batmania, camp, the role of women, the show’s participation in ’60s counter-culture, its many celebrated actors, its lasting cultural effects, and other critical subjects.
And I did the cover for it.
I ask very kindly and humbly that you consider ordering a copy and also that you may also ask your comic book shop manager/owner to order one or two copies of the book for their shelves. NOTE: please don’t assume your shop will automatically order the book – PREVIEWS has thousands of items and too often good stuff gets lost among all the clutter.
“I now have a new book for my ‘Five I’d Take to a Desert Island’ list. Gotham City 14 Miles is the perfect companion to my favorite pop-culture phenomenon of all time!””
– Mark Waid
