Fanboys in Gotham City
The Star Tribune has a triple threat of Dark Knight coverage today, including a review by Colin Covert and two features I put together. First, I looked at the darker and more blemished superheroes making it onto the big screen in "Achilles' Angst," and then did a quick turn story on the midnight and wee-hour opening night showings of the film throughout the metro. That feature, which includes a 23-year-old fanboy, landed on A1.

Blogger JHitts: I like the comment that says:

"A Triumph the Insult Comic Dog episode waiting to happen."

Did you actually go to talk to people in line? It didn't seem clear from the article.

Blogger Tony Gonzalez: No, I did not go to the lines. I wrote the story for the morning before the lines began. But I was able to track down a bunch of pre-sale buyers anyway.
