Re: TO THE BATPOLES #132: Women of Season One: Not Just "Poor, Deluded Girls"

There certainly are obvious moments in the Season 1 that poorly reflect women and would be unacceptable today. And there's little doubt about the lack of strong female characters in the show.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #124: Penguinalysis: How would '60s comics fans have seen Meredith?

I want to go at your analysis from the opposite, mirror direction. I first discovered Batman and his rogues watching reruns of the 1960s show in 1976, The villain who was the most different was Riddler. Great thought. The TV show certainly had it's influence on the characters and Riddler is a great...

Who's the green-faced guy in the 1942 panel?
The green guy is Joe Crow. In Batman 11 (1942), Penguin teamed with Joe Crow, Buzzard Benny, and Canary in a "honest casino" story.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #116: Victor Buono: Holy Ad-Libbed Comedy!

Interesting episode! As Paul mentioned, this project has also brought me a greater appreciation of Victor Buono (and Burgess Meredith). I'm sure I'll be in the minority on this, but as a "romantic" I like Ross' original script where Batman admits his love for a villianess (and liked even more the li...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #115: Two Batman Parodies

Really enjoyed this episode! Your discussion on the "silliness" of costumes [in this and other episodes] in comics has been interesting to me. The silliness certainly never occurred to me as in the 70s... 80s... 90s... or 2000s! In fact as recently as last year I was distraught over why Luke Cage an...
