Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Found the newsstand issue in a comic shop dollar bin. Direct market issue arrived today from Evilbay. https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Detective_Comics_Vol_1_554 Congrats on the pick-up, Keith. I remember buying Tec 554 off the spinner rack and being....well, less than enthused with Black Canary's new lo...

Re: RIP Denny O'Neil

I started collecting in 1976 and first discovered some of Denny's great earlier stories via Treasury Edition. DC picked some really great O'Neil stories to spotlight in those, and he quickly became one of my favorite Batman writers. I got to collect some (and would have collected all, if not for spo...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #135: Batman ’66 Comics, the Gray Ghost, and Nostalgia

Hi Guys. As always, thanks for the show. I had no idea how long traffic cones have been around, since I've only been around since 1971. According to this, cones have been around since the 1940s, and I think they've been on the highway I had to drive to get to work since then. Yes, I love working fro...

Re: One:12 Collective Superman - 1978 Edition

Thanks for sharing. I have fond memories of seeing the first two Christopher Reeve movies in the theatre.

Just because we're Batman fans doesn't mean we aren't Superman fans, too. After all, if Superman hadn't been so successful when he debuted, there probably wouldn't be a Batman.

Re: BAT 77 Podcast - Asylum of the Futurians (Batman #229)

Sorry to take so long to comment. I'm not surprised that Barr wrote a letter praising this story. Barr wrote a text piece for my favorite treasury, Batman's Strangest Cases. There he highlighted "Other Strange Cases of the Batman" and this is one of the issues he mentioned. He made the story sound v...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #134: What’s My Crime? Bob Dozier’s Joker Drafts

In the "Joker's Utility Belt" comic, the Joker has a conveyor belt that leads into a giant Joker face, and the Joker mouth is a furnace. His utility belt is also red in the comic, which may be where that bit came from. Joker managing to take off Batman's belt and replace it with another belt must m...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #134: What’s My Crime? Bob Dozier’s Joker Drafts

Thanks for the show and for posting the scripts. I always enjoying reading them and seeing what changed before filming. The Joker's Utility Belt was reprinted in Batman 176, which had a December 1965 cover date. According to comics.org, the on-sale date was October 7, 1965. Dick Sprang was the artis...

Re: Catwoman 80th Cover

Hope this isn't against forum rules, but the cover with the masked Julie is an exclusive available at J. Scott Campbell's website. Just an FYI, before anyone pays three prices for it on eBay.

Re: BAT 77 Podcast - The House That Haunted Batman (Detective #408) w/Ken Holtzhouser

I think the jarring shift in tone was probably due to the fact that Wolfman & Wein wrote this early in their careers, when they were still learning how to write comics. Not to say the story isn't entertaining, it just isn't among either writers' best works. I wonder how they co-wrote it...If one plo...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

A couple of more comics that came in this week. I did these as an additional post so it can be deleted if these aren't considered Batman items. Lois Lane 14 January 1960 Cover pencils by Curt Swan, inks by Stan Kaye - Batman's picture is on the cover but he doesn't appear in the issue. I knew that w...

Batman issues that I have added to my collection this week. This pushes my consecutive issue run of Batman back to 124. I have the Pizza Hut reprints of 122 & 123, so I won't be buying the originals of those. Batman 120 December 1958 Cover pencils by Curt Swan, inks by Stan Kaye Batman 130 March 196...

Re: Batman Ratings

Thanks for the work that has gone into this thread.



I'm surprised Batman's ratings had dropped to this point. I didn't think any of the later first season episodes weren't entertaining.
