CA – Dark Night: A True Batman Story Signing

Meet writer and producer Paul Dini when he appears at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Saturday, September 23rd at 5:00 PM to discuss a Batman story like no other-the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of his courageous struggle to overcome a desperate situation.

Pictures Animation and DC Comics animated series, including Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond. Dini is also the creator of Jingle Belle and co-creator of Harley Quinn.

Walking home one evening, Dini 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. A gripping graphic memoir of one writer’s traumatic experience and his deep connection with his creative material, DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is an original graphic novel that will resonate profoundly with fans

Join Paul Dini for this Very Special Discussion and signing of Dark Knight: A True Batman Story on Batman Day.
