National and local press features, articles and reviews. Film and entertainment magazine articles and reviews. Exclusive content on major movie/TV websites and key entertainment blogs. Cross promotions with film/TV distributor. Batman and all related characters and elements are trademarks of and (c) DC Comics. (s14). At last: the book Bat-Fans have been waiting! For the first time, the classic 1960s Batman TV show receives the lavish coffee table tribute book it so richly deserves. The show, starring Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin, was nothing less than a cultural phenomenon in the mid-60s (even the Pope was a fan!), and it is still in worldwide syndication today. The show featured an all-star Rogues Gallery of Villains, including Burgess Meredith as The Penguin, Cesar Romero as The Joker, Julie Newmarr and Eartha Kitt as Catwoman and Vincent Price as Egghead. The book will feature both classic images and rare photographs and production art from the show, and will be the definitive companion to the series.
Garcia has written for the magazines: Filmfax, Locus, Kitbuilders and Cinefantastique. At CFQ he developed two double-issues. Both have become known as primary reference works on their subjects. The first featured the Batman 60s TV show, written with Joe Desris. Garcia conducted hours and hours of interviews with both cast and crew: talking to executives at ABC and Twentieth Century Fox and Greenway Productions.
