I should start off by noting that I'm not a huge fan of memoirs, biographies, etc. especially if they're not by Teddy Roosevelt, Andy Griffith, or some other prominent someone with a particularly adventurous or positive outlook on life. That's why Michael Uslan's book took me by surprise. I read the tar out of this memoir. I'm going to jump to the blurb and say "The Boy Who Loved Batman reads like a real life episode of 'The Wonder Years'". And that's a very good thing. It's his everyboy charm that sucks you right into his shoes retelling the stories of his first comic book purchases to his awkward high school years when it wasn't such a cool hobby.
