Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[ on 'Back to the Future'] I don't know that part one was necessarily hugely cutting-edge. It was a very good melding of mechanical effects, where you can't tell where one ends and the other begins. So we're proud of that. This was way before we had computers or anything digital to do this stuff.. It holds up really well, and is probably the best time-machine film ever made.

Trivia:

Wrote first chapter of Batman's "No Man's Land" crossover and will eventually write some Daredevil comics. See more »
