This was the first summer in years that I watched some of the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. It’s not that I don’t love sharks–I do (JAWS is my favorite film). But by the time I was a teenager I’d already watched a lot of shark nature shows, so I suppose I figured there wasn’t much new to learn. Still, I enjoyed Shark Week this year, especially Jaws Comes Home, which examined the recent appearance of numerous great white sharks off my native Massachusetts coast.
More importantly for you, I was inspired to create Bat-Week! I’ve got over twenty unopened Batman-related toys, ranging from 1989 to 2011, and over the next seven days I’ll be reviewing as many of them as possible. So sit back, put on your cape and cowl, sandpaper your vocal cords and enjoy the Batmania.
