Glen Weldon: "The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture"

source: Talks at Google   2016年5月4日
In *The Caped Crusade*, Glen Weldon lays out Batman’s seventy-eight-year history and his multitudinous iterations: from his dark beginnings on the comic book page through his introduction to Saturday morning cartoons, from toy shelves across the country to the silver screen and beyond.

Since his creation in 1939, Batman has been many things. He's helped make us who we are today and that's why his legacy remains so strong. Weldon shows us that each version of Batman is legitimate because he is personal to someone—he is someone’s “my Batman.”
