Re: If Batman wore contact lenses...

Being a B&L lens wearer for 40 years now I sure could have used this product in the past. With the throw away dailies and 2 week lens these days I don't think at least for me that cleaning is an issue. The design is fantastic and I may just contribute. How interesting that it looks like a Pokem...

If Batman wore contact lenses...

...he'd probably have an ultrasonic Bat-lens cleaner in his utility belt. (Obviously Batman has perfect vision, so this is a nonsensical hypothetical proposition! Maybe Robin needs vision correction? One can never be too prepared?) A couple days ago I launched a project on Kickstarter to make such a...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #170: Power Bat-Records

Great episode. JB was the perfect guest to discuss this with. I'm sad to hear his own podcast is ending soon, though.

When you think about it, I don’t think the villains would have taken Batman seriously with thoses costumes
Of course, one would have to assume that Joker, Riddler, etc would wear something similar?

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #169: “Instant Freeze” script: We don’t love a parade

You gotta admit, Sanders looks pretty darn cool in that space suit. Not literally, of course. I'm sure he's sweating up a storm in there. Imagine if they'd added some colored lights, maybe baby blue, into the helmet just below his chin. Maybe some Darth Vader-ish knobs and colored switches on a ches...

Re: Hatter moll Jean Hale passes away

The Contaminated Cowl/Mad Hatter Runs Afoul were two of the handful of episodes I that I had on VHS having taped off of an early 90's broadcast. I wore those tapes out over the years, they were how I fell in love with the show. I must have seen Jean's performance hundreds of times at this point. Re...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #168: “Dick Tracy” and “Wonder Woman”: The Dozierverse Stumbles

I think the inherent problem with the Dozier office in regards to made-for-TV creations is that their writers were not comic book writers and the production team didn't even understand comics, comic readers and what made a lasting comic villain character work in the first place. That's interesting....

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #167: Tom Peyer talks “Batman 66” and “The Wrong Earth”

He was generalizing about all comic books--not just Batman, Hmm, I didn't hear it that way. I thought he was talking about Batman comics specifically, and not including contemporary Marvel comics of the 60s. But to take your side for a bit, I do think it's fair to say that Batman comic books of 65-...

What did you make this with? Is it laser cut?
Mine's an altered (photoshop) version of the one posted above it. I don't know how the ones that are advertised for sale are made.
Your changes to engine and transmission are perfect.

Re: Famed designer Nolan Miller freelanced on Batman

I would add this is more evidence that Joan was not a last-minute addition if they were calling in someone from the outside. This is my biggest take-away, too. Nice detective work!

Actually, he did say, "...honest portrayal of what comic books were at the time..." I still find his statement to be accurate? Batman stories of the time served as undeniable inspiration for many of the episodes..? Detective Comics 341 became 'Death in Slow Motion'... Zelda the Great was ...
