Only time my dad ever wanted to attend a comic-book convention was when he heard Adam West was signing photos. And this was, oh, two years ago maybe? Batman returns Saturday and Sunday to the Dallas Comic Con at the Richardson Civic Center, where he'll be joined by some dude from Twilight: New Moon and the X-Men movies, Young Indiana Jones hisself, the amazingly named Charisma Carpenter of Buffy fame, some supporting players from the original Battlestar Galactica and Chewbacca, natch.
