The Man who watched Batman was originally created as a blog series. stuck in between jobs, Writer Ken Johnson had an idea to make a project out of watching the entirety of Batman: the Animated series for the first time. as he would watch it, he cataloged his thoughts and analysis on each episode. as the episodes started to add up, the idea of releasing as a review novel was created. in 2013, a much more primitive version of The Man who Watched Batman Vol. 1 was created for the first ever Midwest Media Expo in Detroit, MI. shortly after, the book gained the attention and admiration of Michigan based comic creators and publishers like Kasey Pierce, Travis McIntire, and Dirk Manning. Comfort and Adam were brought on after a successful Kickstarter campaign to create the original cover with subsequent covers all being created by Michigan based comic creators. in 2017, The Man who watched Batman: Ultimate edition, containing all 4 volumes combined alongside other bonus materials, was released to coincide with invitation to be a guest at the 2017 Grand Rapids Comic Con and hos ta mini BTAS reunion to mark the 25th anniversary of Batman: The animated series.
