About The Author

Jeff Hill is a moderately reformed frat boy turned writer/teacher living the dream in Lincoln, Nebraska. He does freelance work and writes fiction, none of which is about corn or the husking of corn. His work has appeared in over a dozen publications and his mom has a binder full of printed copies for any doubters. Plus, he's the Chief Creative Officer of Comic Booked. So that's pretty neat, too.

    My favorite Batman story ever took place not in the New 52 or in the old DCU… but Gotham by Gaslight has to have been one of the best Batman stories I've ever had the opportunity to read!
