New Batman Book - First Look

I was at the St. Charles, IL toy show this past weekend and met up with Joe Desris who had an advance copy of the new book on display. I flipped through it mainly looking at the photos, and I have to say it is stunning! Hardcover, full of photo (and not many of the "common" ones we've all seen dozens of times). I can't wait until it is available in the next month or two.

Does it have a chapter on the 1966 Batman Topps Cards?

The book deals strictly with the show and doesn't get into the merchandising. That would be a whole other book unto itself!

Looking forward to checking this out. It's fairly similar in concept to a book I put a pitch together for around two years ago minus a couple of sections that were going to feature new photography too.

Looks like it will be worth the wait from August of 2015 when I pre-ordered it after all.

Pardon if it's been mentioned but why am I seeing the cover with and without the utility belt in various images?

Thanks.
Brett

The utility belt is a thin cardboard wrap that is not attached to the book, just an accent
