Re: BAT 77 Episode #09 - On The Record

Unlike JB, I got the Staked Cards book & record set before I got the album with the story. In fact, it was one of the first few Batman items I got as a kid. I don't remember if this was my first exposure to Neal Adams's artwork or if I got Staked Cards after the Ra's Al Ghul treasury. Don't laugh, b...

Re: SCRIPT: THE FUNNY FELINE FELONIES

This may get me kicked off the board, but I don't hate Stanley Ralph Ross's writing as much as a lot of other fans of the series do. He wrote all of my favorite all of my favorite season 3 episodes. However, this treatment and script are a mess. Thanks for posting the scripts. I enjoyed reading the ...

Re: BAT 77 Episode #08 - The Dark Mite Trilogy

Hi JB, Sorry to be so late posting, but this has been a busy week. Maybe its because I'm from the south, but every guy my age that I know lists Smokey and the Bandit among his favorite movies...as such, the Joker's CB conversation was my favorite part of the episode. Heck, it was one of my favorite ...

Tour of John Byrne's studio

If you ask me, one of the reasons that Byrne's comics were so good is that he has an obvious love for the characters. Please make sure to check out his Dick Sprang Batman piece. That is so cool!

Re: Telly Savalas

I heard he was gonna do a cameo as Kojak in the movie , believe it or not (might be bogus rumor though) I don't think it is bogus. I've heard interviews with either Tom Mankiewicz or Richard Donner (maybe both) where the referenced the scene versions of the script before they came on board as evide...

Re: Bill Finger - RIP

Glad to see that he is remembered today, but it is a shame he didn't get this recognition when he was alive. We already know of all the great contributions Finger made to Batman's world, in addition to the fact that he really created Batman. He also created Lana Lang and Lori Lemaris, so Finger also...

Re: Telly Savalas

He was my favorite Blofeld.

Bruce Timm and company used Mr. Savalas as a model for Lex Luthor on Superman : The Animated Series. I thought Savalas would have made a great live-action Luthor.

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

That looks very cool. Thanks for starting the thread, Andy.

So far, I've pre-ordered 5 of the Detective Comics 1000 variants. I'm very angry with myself for getting five versions of the same book. I got the 30s-70s covers, if anyone was curious.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #101: Egghead and Olga are back… Or did they just get here?

Thanks for the insights into the episode and for stating that this was intended to be the first part. That makes more sense, although the episodes are still pretty terrible. I enjoyed the first Egghead two-parter from season two, but he was an entirely different character here. Originally, he was su...

Re: BAT 77 Episode #07 - The Cat and the Clay / Freaky Friday

I agree the Catwoman and Clayface were a pretty weird idea for a team up. Having them at odds, ala the Joker vs Clayface story in the early 60s might have been more interesting. Really, I wonder if the episode would have worked better as a Clayface solo story. With all the wild stuff that Catwoman's...

Re: NEW BATMAN CATWOMAN STATUE

Thanks so much for posting photos of your actual statue. I've been scared off from buying anything from Bradford Exchange because of all the bad stuff I've read, but that statue looks pretty nice. I'm seriously considering getting one. What type of packaging does it come in? Normally, I like boxes w...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #100: Adam West's Signature Role

Sorry to be so long replying. I thought I had listened to these interviews, but I don't think I had all of them. I didn't remember the story about how Adam West met Bob Kane. Kane really seemed to want to use the show to promote himself. Did either of you read the 60s Batman newspaper strip books? O...
