1970s Batman - Missed Opportunity

I recently finished watching the entire original run of the Mission Impossible TV series. Every episode I couldn't help but notice that actor Peter Lupus would have a made a perfect live action version of Neal Adams' Bruce Wayne and Batman. He was a good actor and was a weightlifter as well as stand...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

The wife gave me a Thomas Kinkade Batman 1,000 piece puzzle for Christmas. I'm over the moon on this one as I'm a big fan of both and to have my favorite painter artist doing my favorite comic character is just awesome. Some of you may know how famous his style is for the lighting effects in his pai...

And then there's the real life Elf on a Shelf as shown here by WGN Chicago's Pat Tomasulo on his Man of the People comedy show (now over unfortunately).

Re: So were any of the 66 villians destined to be awful?

Actually, I didn't find the Minstrel episode too bad what with the disguises and computer rigging and all that. For me, it was one of season's 2's bright spots - one of them...

Re: FUNKO 1966 Batman 18" POP! LE 700 Figure Released and SOLD OUT!!!

I have two as well I bought way back at the beginning - a Batman and Joker. After that I got fed up as any comic store I walked into, and even the comic-cons, all started pushing a gazillion of these identical figures. I understand and accept that there are fans of the line, but I just can't get int...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Nice haul, Keith. I especially like the Batgirl art. Looking at it makes me pose a question to you and everyone else. She started out in the comics with a black outfit (as we see in this introductory image) and then later moved to a grey one. What's your preference? I, myself, prefer the later grey ...

Yeah, but it still looks like a Funko Pop, so no thanks.
I'll second this.

Re: Superman: The Movie Anniversary This Sunday 12/15/19

I remember seeing it in 1978 like it was only last week. The theater was sold out and the audience sat in silence with extreme curiosity watching the opening historical comic narrative. Then, cheering and applause as the opening rumbling notes, like a countdown to detonation, built the anticipation ...

Re: CW Crisis Event

Funny how DC Comics and their TV "shows" are always a one-trick pony with that overused buzz word 'Crisis' that they've beat to death since the '80s. Anything and everything is always a crisis with them except for the real one when DiDio & Co. took over. In any event, the CW is nothing but a playgro...

Re: The forgotten 1994 Batsuit from DC's "Troika"

SprangFan, Holy Automotive Dentistry! You're right. The grill and headlights do look like Speed Buggy. This makes Jones' take on Batman more of a joke. As for 'Team Batman' in the comics it's team everything now. In comics, superhero TV shows (the absolutely horrid CW) and movies, even regular shows...
