There's a story behind this book. I barely remember how I came in to the comics world, but I think it all started after watching Batman Begins, leading up to reading Marvel's Civil War.

I remember looking up Batman art online and came across All-Star Batman and Robin's Jim Lee Black/White Variant. I wanted it. Didn't know where to find it. So I came across a small comic book shop and talked with the owner. Very knowledgeable. I inquired about the Jim Lee variant, but of course that was unavailable, but he managed to find this gem. Batman 655 had a really cool black and red retail cover by Andy Kubert. Still a favorite of mine, but he also said this book had a variant by Adam. Snatched it up for $10.

Fast forward 8 years later, I find myself at MegaCon. And wouldn't you know it, Adam Kubert was there. I managed to win an online contest and won a print of his version of Wolverine signed in gold at the con, then I stood in line to meet the man himself.

It was crazy. Meeting any comic book artist is pretty cool, but meeting Adam was a genuine experience. While he was signing my book, I explained to him that this particular book was my first variant I ever bought. At that moment he switched pens and personalized my book for me. While signing he explained, "...and it won't be your last." I was in shock.

After that moment, I met J. Scott Campbell, signing my Black Widow 1. I was on a high. Haven't stopped collecting since...
