Batcon 2019

Back by popular demand, I offer Batcon 2019. We had over 500 people come to our con last year, and with this year being the 80th anniversary of the Batman character, and the 30th anniversary of the 1989 movie, we thought we'd better give it another go on August 17th and 18th, 2019, at the Logansport...

Re: I think Dozier rolled the dice with Gorshin

This is a fascinating topic. I've wondered the same, but thought about it from a more practical standpoint: maybe the makeup shop wasn't ready for Joker's white face and green hair, or the Penguin's nose? Maybe Cesar and Burgess weren't available for the pilot shooting dates? Maybe the prop departme...

Re: I’m Sorry VICTOR BUONO, I Was Wrong About You

Nice article, Dan! I was the same way about (dare I say it?) Frank Gorshin's Riddler. It took ten years of maturing for me to appreciate Frank's absolutely incredible performances.

Re: Dec 8 , Sothebys has a Batmobile up for Auction

The first car was (probably) built by Jay Ohrberg. It was sold from the Cars From the Stars Museum in England for a whopping $233,000 to someone in the Cayman Islands, then was for sale again in Auburn, Indiana on 9-2-17. I 'think' it was bid to $110k, but I don't recall if it sold.

Re: Fiberglass Freaks 15 Year Anniversary Mini-Con

Not pictured are Buddy, Puff, Kathy, and Bobbi, who weren't able to attend Sunday. I'll post their pics when I get a chance. I'm hosting a city movers and shakers tour in about an hour, and I'm still putting the shop back together from the convention! Everyone seemed pleased with the airport as a ve...

We had 475 attendees between the two days--what a great time! It was all due to the incredible people that put it together:
