Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

We're left to guess just how intimate Yvonne's "dating" with Elvis was, or whether she backed off from it once she was convinced that Elvis was secretly married. As a participant, it would have been easy for her to clarify that. Instead, what we were left with is the strong impression tha...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #139: "Batman Meets Godzilla" #2 and the Battle Over the Batmobile

Fascinating show, guys. I'm not sure you need Barris paperwork to get his side of the Batmobile matter, since the responses from Fitzsimons, et al., also serve as a view of what Barris was trying to pull. For all of his well-known ego, Barris really produced some shoddy work, if the car's ignition, ...

Same here. I love the 1940s style of publicity shot in an era where that was no longer the norm.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

Interesting episode, guys. Some fans have complained about the nature of some of the stories in Ward's book, but Craig's book was in extended orbit of that "world" by claiming that she dated Elvis while he was married. Some might say "well, she's just telling the truth" , but the...

Re: Holy New Trading cards Batman!

SketchCardsAndCovers, that's an interesting take on the series. Very appealing. Do you have any intention of taking a deep dive into guest stars from the rest of the series?

Re: TO THE BATPOLES: #136 Freeze/Penguin teamup and Dozier's ten rules

Another winner, guys. For all of the flack Dozier gets from fans, his "Ten rules" memo was largely the right call, especially his asking directors to watch the pilot. If the series held to the suggestions of his memo (including Dozier having to listen to his own advice), we would have a ve...

Re: Hornet Gas Mask Prop

Nice work! My only criticism would be the logo is a bit too large on the mask.

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

Tim and Paul, Batman referring to Robin as "The Boy Wonder" is not a mistake or flub. Respectfully, I believe the point they were making was the same as what is seen in that clip--Batman only would use that moniker when introducing Robin to someone else, not in a direct conversation with ...

Re: GH on Blue ray

Thanks for the post, Ben. The default thought for anyone interested in seeing The Green Hornet released to the home video market should be: "Did Fox (and/or whoever owns the GH property) make an official announcement?" It won't take long to find the answer, which is no at this point, which...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

I finally found the little DC Nano 66 Penguin figure to go with the Batman and Joker figures. Glad to have them all. Also picked up a Jim Gordon from the Animated series. https://static3.tcdn.com.br/img/img_prod/460977/nano_metalfigs_pinguim_penguin_dc_comics_dc49_jada_toys_39301_2_20181217184607.j...

Re: New Batman Movie

Batman has changed several times over his published existence, so it should come as no surprise that movies treat the character the same way, although there were comic versions that were bad from the start, like the latter half of the Golden Age and into early Silver, where the character almost took...

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

Great show, guys. Tim, you were right about the high number of characters dying on 1960s TV series; think of Star Trek --far beyond the old joke about all of the "redshirts" dying, a large number of guest characters met their end in the Final Frontier. On Batman --specifically "Better...
