Summary
In the 1990s, legendary writer Paul Dini had a flourishing career writing the hugely popular Batman: The Animated Series and Tiny Toon Adventures. Walking home one evening, he was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including the Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side, chivvying him along during his darkest moments
Summary
A semi-autobiographical graphic novel details the author's recovery process after a vicious beating, detailing how he imagined Batman at his side, keeping his most dangerous villains at bay and protecting him during his darkest moments
