On the Beat with Bruce Scivally at C2E2

I had to go to a convention in downtown Chicago to discover a talented writer who lives a couple miles form me.  How about that?
Bruce Scivally is a Chicago area historian, teacher and author.  Bruce's latest book is Billion Dollar Batman, a history of Batman in movies and television.  This book is full of interviews, pictures and fascinating stories covering the history of the Caped Crusader.
When I saw Bruce would be at C2E2, I really wanted to meet and talk to him.  I have a fascination with learning the history and behind-the-scenes info and Bruce's three years of research certainly delivers everything I would want to know about Batman.
Bruce kindly gave us a few minutes of his time to discuss Billion Dollar Batman and to give us a few nuggets of Bat-trivia.  Watch the interview below to learn more about Bruce and his book and to get a special surprise visitor near the end!
Previous to Billion Dollar Batman, Scivally wrote a book about Superman, entitled Superman on Film, Television, Radio and Broadway.  With the big two super heros done, the next logical choice (at least in my biased eyes) has to be Aquaman.  Come on Bruce, make us Aquafans happy!
After you watch the video, please check out and Bruce's Facebook page to learn more about this talented author and his books.
