"Gotham City 14 Miles" Review

If you're a Batman fan, I totally recommend checking out Gotham City 14 Miles, a searching and multi-faceted collection of essays on the Batman TV show.  Writers as diverse as Paul Dini, Jeff Rovin and Chuck Dixon check in with chapters covering what made the show different, what made it a hit, why we still remember it (and even judge other Batman versions by it) and why many fans have a distince love-hate relationship with it.
I think I enjoyed Dixon's essay most of all; the comic writer discusses how he tried to add back tips of the hat to the TV show in his comics writing-- and also dishes on just how hard it is to write a Riddler script.

Comics-to-screen afficianados should check this one out!
