Best of SON: Michael Uslan

Listen
AIR DATE: April 21, 2010

If you're a fan of Batman comics, you might find a kindred spirit in Michael Uslan. He collected 35,000 comic books when he was a kid. And no, his mother did not throw them out. He's also one of the producers of the Batman movie series, and is largely responsible for the shift to the darker, brooding Batman that we see on the big screen today.

We spoke with Michael back in November, when he was in town for the Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival. He told us the story of growing up as a kid who loved comic books... and how that made it really hard to be labeled as "cool." Rebroadcast.
