Havenites in the news yet again

From Free Comic Book Day to "Revenge of the Sith" and now "Batman Begins," Haven just can't seem to stay out of the news.
Andy Price is going batty.

A Bat-fan for almost four decades, Price is excited and anxious waiting for the latest "Batman" movie to hit the big screen: "Batman Begins." ...

"I'm scared to death," said Price, an artist who has worked for Innovation Comics on the "Quantum Leap" (based on the cult-favorite TV series) and "Dark Shadows" titles, as well as various books, trading cards, catalogs, storyboards and much more. His primary work is classic comics.

"Four times since the '80s have we been told we would have a 'Batman' movie, only to have an on-screen train wreck each time," Price said. "As a devoted and die-hard Bat-fan for 36 years, I have many high expectations - as can be seen in the size of my comic collection, bat-memorabilia and my artwork - many demands that no movie could possibly meet. But so far, none of the films have met even a minority of them." ...

"I think this movie is finally going to get it right," said Josh Olive of Haven Comics in Madison. "The previews have certainly led me to believe that the director this go-around understands the nature of the character, and that's what is going to drive this movie, I think. Everyone loves the cool gadgets that 'Batman' has - they're a lot of fun - but he'd still be 'Batman' without them. And, I think this director knows that."

John Burgess thinks this could be the best "Batman" movie made.

"I'm terribly excited about this one," Burgess said. "This is 'Batman' as he has never been and as he should always be in films. No cartoon noises. No hyper-colorful baddies. As far as being better than the last 'Batman' movie, that won't take much at all."
