Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Great model, he did a great job on it, Keith. Chuck-- There are a lot of great items from the original '66 Batmania-- the push puppet, the Marx Figure, the Ideal Figures, the belt, but I think the Helmet is the best of the lot. I'll never part with mine and it looks like you got one in nice shape too!

Re: Bringing the Bat Boat in line with the Batmobile: The Aqua Bat

It's pretty sharp-- I don't know how much time was put into the development of the Batboat since it was for the movie, but this wouldn't have filmed well on the water-- it would have virtually disappeared which is why you have bright vibrant colors on the real thing. Personally, I'm a traditionalist...

Re: 100 years of Zorro in 2019

As a kid Zorro was my favorite, Lou-- I think he even passed Batman for a time. The 1975 movie with Alain Delon was my favorite as a kid, today I'd probably go with the serial Zorro's Fighting Legion. I have the Guy Williams series and it's good but slightly kiddie oriented (as would be expected). I...

Re: Fans of The Shadow?

SprangFan and I are brothers from another mother. The Spider was indeed The Shadow on steroids. By the third issue of his pulp series there would have been no one left in New York City because the populace had been wiped out. The only thing I didn't like about The Spider was his disguise-- on the co...

Re: Fans of The Shadow?

I've always been intrigued by the shadow, but never have read any of the pulp stories...this thread might inspire me to do so! Start with the early ones-- in fact I'd go with THE LIVING SHADOW which is the first story. Around the first 12-15 stories have loose connections to each other as agents co...

Batman owes a great deal to this pulp character and the very first Batman story from Detective Comics #27 was a direct riff of an earlier S...

Re: New packaging for the Batmobile snap kit

I have the previous release, wifey put it together for me-- she loves model kits. I liked the old packaging, I like this packaging, but I don't like when they do this. It's like when a comic collection gets re-released with a new cover-- you don't know if you have it and now you have two copies of s...

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

Nadda.
The one I go to usually is pretty stocked with comics in the trading card section and those were wiped out. Checked every end cap and the books and magazines~ nothing.
I give up.

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

They don't make these easy to find. The regular monthly Batman comic book that is a Wal*Mart exclusive right now is displayed at the registers in the trading card section. If you didn't know Wal*Mart still had a trading card section you are not alone.

Re: THE TOP 13 GREATEST BATMAN STORIES EVER -- RANKED

You had me until #9-- while Burton's Batman film is important because it's the first time since the Adam West show that we see a "serious" Batman the movie itself just doesn't hold up. The Prince music, Nicholson's way too over the top (although if you compare him to Jim Carrey's Riddler it's brilli...

Stopped in my local Wally World to see if I could find that comic, no luck-- was it with the regular Wal-Mart Batman comics, Keith?

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

For Batman's 80th Anniversary I did a Variant Cover which will also be released as a limited edition print-- the image is based on his first appearance in the comic book. Colors are done to be primary and simple as an homage to 1939 era comics printing. I think it came out OK. https://images.squares...
