WHERE DOES HE GET THOSE WONDERFUL TOYS?
When Warner Bros.' Batman hit theaters in the summer of 1989, director Tim Burton's masterpiece of action, atmosphere, and art direction smashed box office predictions and rewrote the conventional wisdom on what comic book movies could achieve--both financially and artistically.
In the wake of the film's success, DC Comics--keepers of the Dark Knight Detective's foundational four-color adventures--set out to bring as many of those moviegoers as possible into comic bookstores, and their first step was an official comics adaptation of Burton's newly minted blockbuster.
Crafted by comics legends Dennis O'Neil and Jerry Ordway and released at a time when home video was still in its infancy, Batman: The Official Comic Adaptation
of the Warner Bros. Motion Picture became the "rewatchable" version of the movie for countless fans--and for many, it opened the door to a whole new world of sequential storytelling. Batman: The 1989 Movie Adaptation Deluxe Edition
presents this celebrated retelling of the Academy Award-winning film for the first time in a dedicated hardcover volume. This comprehensive 30th-anniversary collection features the complete original title as well as high-quality scans of Ordway's original, never-before-seen, black-and-white artwork for every page.
