Great Batman Scribe Passes.

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Today I learned that one of the all time great writers of Batman comics, Denny O'Neil, died today.  Many consider him (along with writer, Frank Robbins, co-creator of Manbat) to be one of the main forces that pried Batman away from the stigma of the silly television show and thrust him into the realist world of Batman that he has lived in ever since.

     I guess in that sense, he is indeed Batman's savior.

     Denny once joked that he took pride in being born the same year Batman was...1939.

     I've shared the stage with him on more than one occasion and was treated to several meals with him when he was in Cleveland some time ago and I will share more Denny stories with you in the near future.

     Take care and remember to adopt a (Denny O'Neil) comic book today!
