THE BOF CREW
Bill "Jett" Ramey
Born, raised, and still living in the great state of Texas, Bill “Jett” Ramey is the founder and editor-in-chief of BATMAN ON FILM.
Jett created the site in 1998 for one reason and one reason only: The lobbying of the long-term continuation of the Batman film franchise and the production of quality Bat-Movies.
Via the 1960s BATMAN TV series and the Denny O’Neil/Neal Adams and Steve Englehart/Marshall Rogers Bat-Comics of the 1970s, Jett was reeled in and became a lifelong fan of The Dark Knight.
Jett’s favorite Bat-Movie/Story/Animated Series/Video Game/Graphic Novel/Website are…
BATMAN BEGINS/“The Joker’s Five-way Revenge”/BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD & BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES (tie)/ARKHAM CITY/BATMAN: YEAR ONE/BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM.
Besides following all incarnations of The Caped Crusader, Jett enjoys spending time with his wife Rachel and their three kids, working out, traveling, Elvis, Howard Stern, Rock-n-Roll, and The Dallas Cowboys. He is also a longtime high school/junior high school football coach and history teacher.

Robert Reineke reviews comics and films for BOF. He is a Civil and Environmental Engineer residing in Wisconsin. He earned a BS and MS degrees from the University of Wisconsin and has been reading Batman comics since the 1970s. He’s of the firm belief that there are plenty of Batman comics written before Frank Miller that are worthy of discussion.

Chris Clow is a student at Western Washington University majoring in Political Science, and an employee at Bellingham, Washington's oldest and best comic book store, The Comics Place. A Batman fan from a young age, Chris was introduced to the character through Tim Burton's 1989 film -- the first film Chris ever saw at a drive-in theater in Bakersfield, California -- and attributes the characters of the JLA and Batman's profound effect on his youth with many of his passions in entertainment, social and political interests, in addition to providing him with an informed moral outlook.
Clow began writing for BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM in 2006 by contributing monthly comic book reviews for the NIGHTWING title, and has grown his participation in BOF by helping founder and webmaster Bill Ramey cover the San Diego Comic-Con for two consecutive years (2008-2009), writing opinion pieces on current Batman topics, and by being a "BOF Roundtabler" for periodic podcasts conducted by the site. He now regularly reviews DC's flagship title JUSTICE LEAGUE, BATMAN AND ROBIN, and Grant Morrison's BATMAN INCORPORATED on a monthly basis. Grateful to Jett for the opportunity to give his input on topics regarding his favorite comic book character on The Dark Knight's premiere web presence, Clow is an enthusiastic contributor to BOF.
Chris is also a regular contributor and podcast "Gentleman" on BOF's sister site, Modern Myth Media. To check out some of Chris' other writings, visit his blog, The Clow Context. Follow him on Twitter @ChrisClow.

After College Tone Purzycki began teaming with long time childhood friend Mike Wills to film Landscape and Green Industry projects as tutorial videos. Mike & Tone sold the videos at tradeshows throughout the east coast. The collaboration led to the formation of Mikrotone Entertainment. It wasn’t until Mike Wills passed away that Tone made the decision to ride full steam ahead into the world of entertainment. In 2007 the dawning of the brand new genre known as Transmedia Entertainment fascinated Tone. He began seeking out ways to integrate the concept into all of his projects. This eventually led to the creation of Find Me Event, a ground breaking Transmedia franchise of which Tone acted as a hands-on showrunner in all aspects of production. 2012 will mark the debut of his next creation, The AlterNET Reality. Behind the scenes Tone is a Batman fanatic who de-stresses by reading the comics of his legendary hero.
