For those keeping score, The Essential Batman Encyclopedia weighs in at 1382 double-spaced manuscript pages. Minutes ago, I completed the final notes in response to the copy editor’s queries.A daunting concept to be sure. Feels good to have it off my plate before Christmas.Meantime, I see that Amazon is listing Hellboy II: The Golden Army as having a May 28 release date. Guess I better finish it.Also, You Said What?, which was due out this week will be out next week. I have three essays in that and should make for entertaining reading for one and all.
