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?

Re: ‘66 poster promoting the yet to be released show

That being said, I think that people claiming that Miller’s Batman is the “only Batman” have taken it too far. It is one of the many interpretations of the character, and should be treated equally with the others, like West’s Batman or the Batman of the golden age. Its worth noting that "Dark Knigh...

Re: ‘66 poster promoting the yet to be released show

That's an interesting take, but indifference and/or ignorance isn't the same as active dislike or even hate. Among the older crowd (the only one, alas, I can speak from), anti-Kane sentiment stems from the revelation that Kane engaged in a lifelong campaign of disinformation, promoting his own (not ...

Re: ‘66 poster promoting the yet to be released show

I’ve noticed there’s not a lot of love for Bob Cane in the Batman world nowadays. Is that because there’s a feeling that he ripped off Bill Finger? Like the song says, it's "more than a feeling," but yes, that's a big part of the general anti-Kane sentiment. Probably not the ideal forum to get into...

Re: ‘66 poster promoting the yet to be released show

You have to wonder who would promote a show using an image of the star getting conked in the head. And with the only " ad copy" being written in small text on the sole of a shoe. Not exactly the most inspiring piece of Batman or advertising art ever. On the other hand, it certainly seems to be in gr...

If it's any consolation, he did get to play Superman.

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

I suppose there's a "cute factor" with little "babyfied" superheroes, Darth Vader and other characters defined by masks, but unmasked Funko figures all look identical. This "James Bond" is Sean Connery and that one is Daniel Craig? Sure, whatever you say. (At least "Roger" has a mole). "Oddjob" has ...

Yeah, but it still looks like a Funko Pop, so no thanks.

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

Like Andy, my Superman was George Reeves, even though he was dead seven years before I was born. His portrayal of Superman as a wise, patient, fatherly figure defined the character for me, and fit with the comics of my childhood. Interestingly, I didn't want to BE Superman so much as I wanted to bel...

Re: CW Crisis Event

I'm sort of curious about the cameos, but I figure it's inevitable some Youtube poster will edit them all into a super-cut that I can watch later, and it'll only take 5-10 minutes of my time as opposed to hours. Frankly, I'm not sure it's a good idea to remind us of all the better versions of these ...

Re: THE RED DRAGONS--New Bond Book I'm Working On!

Actually, the literary rights to the James Bond character passed into the public domain in Canada and several other nations in 2015 (strange but true!), so if you could find a publisher, it could see print there. But you'd have to be careful to include only elements from the Fleming novels, and not ...

Re: Someone made a Kelley Jones Batman mask

That first Supes isn't bad. It has almost a Steranko vibe to it. Not sure how he could stuff those arms into a shirt and sportcoat as "mild mannered Clark Kent" but that's typical of most depictions these days (and soon to be irrelevant, apparently). Spidey seems a logical leap, as he can "do" horro...

Re: Someone made a Kelley Jones Batman mask

Yeah, there's a lot of wiggle room with Batman: you can distort him pretty far towards what looks like a junkie's nightmare vision without necessarily losing the reader. But if, say, Aquaman or Superman were to show up for visit, it would all fall apart. The Flash could never run with Jones-drawn le...
