Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

I added 9 comics from the late 50s and 60s to my collection this week. Since Batman is my favorite character, six were Batman issues. I also got two Superman issues and a Spider-Man issue. Let me know if anyone wants to see those and I'll post them. Batman 126 September 1959 cover by Curt Swan and S...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Finally added the 1984 Oreo Giveaway to my reprint collection. Congratulations on that. I remember what a thrill it was getting it back in 1984. Back then, we didn't have access to a lot of golden age Batman stuff. I was also quite shocked to see Batman chucked crooks off roofs and knocking them in...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES: BAT-ANNOUNCEMENTS

Good luck with everything that is going in.

Plus, you never should have watched the two Legends of the Super Heroes shows back-to-back. I knew it would kill your enthusiasm for the podcast.

Thanks for letting us know. Hate that so many from the show have passed.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #128: Roast Godzilla

Considering what a turkey of a show the roast was, I'm sure there is a roast turkey joke somewhere, but I can't think of one....at least that wouldn't be as bad as some of the jokes in the show. Even though I suffered through the first show, I tuned in for more punishment by watching the roast. Some...

Re: New Batman Cover statue Sideshow

Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes these look better in hand or after they've been released. I don't think I'll pre-order, but I'll still check out an unboxing video to see it it is something I would want. I love that cover and that Batman logo.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

gothosmansion: I've read a few of the Wein/Wrightson Swampi stories and own reprints of the Englehart/Rogers DETECTIVE run (the highlights, anyway), but we are moving into post-'66 BATMAN/DETECTIVE as a podcast topic right now, so I'll finally crack those reprints open! I know, I know, we're just a...

Re: Ralph Garman's Batman Collection on MeTV

Thanks for the heads-up. I encourage everyone to go by metv.com after the show airs. They usually have a couple of scenes on the site that were cut from the show for time. I know we'll all want to see more of Ralph's collection. I was blown away by what we saw on the TV show blu-rays.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Haven't been able to get on in a while. Most people have already covered what I thought. I remember being highly disappointed with the show when it originally aired. The laugh track bothered me. I didn't like that my comic book heroes were being mocked. Now, I'd be ok with it if the show was funny, ...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Not sure why he's in combat mode in the Batcave, but I'm getting an awesome Neal Adams vibe off that second one. Are they pricey? It doesn't specifically say Adams on the packaging, but it has one of his drawings on the inside flap, although it from Odyssey and not the Bronze Age. It was a Gamestop...
