"[In] the summer of 1993 [...] I was still new to the U.S. and I was struck by how powerfully my friends reacted to Bill Clinton, who had become president about eight months earlier. They had been so happy when Clinton was elected, as if he was going to fix everything. And when some time had passed and he hadn't yet done the things they'd expected, they were genuinely heartbroken, as if something deeply religious had gone wrong. It seemed clear to me that they were yearning for a savior, someone to sort it all out for them. So I thought I'd do a story, in the form of synoptic gospel, in which I'd give my friends the kind of president they wanted."

-- Neil Gaiman in Hy Bender's The Sandman Companion, 182

As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.

And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

"Tom [Brevoort] had suggested to me as the artist to Dan [Slott], and Dan said -- well, it'll sound self-serving if I say the kind words that he said, but I'd like to say that Dan was excited by the idea of me doing it and told me that it ruined the idea of anybody else taking it on. So of course I found that extremely flattering. I love Dan. I love him as a person -- his life force, his joyfulness, his talent." -- Mike Allred
