A few thoughts:
— It only goes to figure that Sean E. Ali’s cover for Season 3 would be purple. Batman, Robin, Batgirl — get it?
— On a personal note, I’m incredibly honored to have contributed to this series. Writing about Surf’s Up! Joker’s Under for the final edition, in particular, was a career highlight. Hope you folks dig it.
— The book, from Crazy 8 Press, is due by March. Keep coming to 13th Dimension for updates. Meanwhile, you can click here and here for the first two volumes. You’ll love ’em! (And don’t forget — Jim is also a 13th Dimension columnist!)
