Book designer Chip Kidd, photographer Geoff Spear, and translator Anne Ishii will appear at the Rocketship comic store in Brooklyn, New York for a presentation and signing for their Bat-Manga! The Secret History of Batman in Japan book. The book compiles Jiro Kuwata's 1960s manga re-interpretation of DC Comics' costumed detective hero, and also looks at Batman's presence in Japan when the live-action television series was released. Kidd has designed an exclusive bookplate for people who get their books signed at the event.

On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
Can a series that sometimes gets tremendously gory also be tremendously fun? This one seems intent on proving that a series can be both. Its plethora of converging story threads, combined with the ongoing antics of Isaac and Miria, make watching this an involving and highly entertaining experience.
