Re: Batman 89 vs Batman Begins
Speaking of exposure to the Burton movie and it's sequels making fans of a generation. A funny thing is that I'm 29 and unlike most from my generation I didn't become a Batman fan because of Burton's movie. A year before the movie had already hit I was watching reruns of the filmation Batman cartoon and the Adam West TV series. On top of that I was also reading the comic books of the time and even earlier thanks to my older cousin's comic book collection. Reading Batman comics is actually how I learned how to read.
Matter of fact I even missed the movie in theaters because I went out of the country that summer. Though I was dying to see it and was engulfed in Batmania that entire year this was the age before movies were released around the same time on a global level so it wasn't meant to be. It wasn't until I received the home video as a gift that fall that I finally got to see it until I wore the tape lol.
I read: Saga, Thief of Thieves, The Manhattan Projects, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Green Lantern, Superman, Action Comics, Batman '66, Detective Comics, Batman & Robin, Batman, Red Hood, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Justice League Dark, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, All-Star Western, Earth 2, World's Finest, Daredevil, Superior Spider-Man, All-New X-Men
