Re: This could lead me to the treasure of pirate Captain Manx, himself!

Remarkable find from your friend, Chuck. Its almost next to impossible to find a 50+ year-old item like that. It really be at home in the Bat-exhibit.

Re: Jackie Gleason as The Penguin

Frankly, Gleason was not as versatile as Meredith; it takes a special level of talent to create a living, arrogant, even oddly threatening "bird man" from what one would guess was not the most detailed character references. Like Gorshin as the Riddler, Sanders as Freeze and Newmar as Catwoman, Mere...

Re: is Batgirl styrene still in the works?

Oh, you bet it is! Moebius just released the Joker, and has no intention of ending things without Batgirl for the diorama. Moebius was sold to Pegasus hobbies. I spoke with the new owners, and all is well in Batmodel land. Sold to Pegasus...what prompted that? Moebius having financial difficulties?...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #099: The Kitt-y Cat Shows her Claws

Another winner, guys. Similar to third season's Joker wanting to be king of the surf, and Louie's similarly inexplicable interests among the flower children, the new Catwoman is obsessed with plans as ambitious as a teenage girl wanting to be prom queen. This is no longer the calculating Catwoman, b...

Re: Robin, Batgirl and Vietnam

Bob, that's great research, but as dell mentioned, if true, I wonder why Burt never mentioned it over the decades? Could it have been a publicity stunt only to "explain" why Batgirl was being added to the series, or taking the teeth out of pro-Vietnam critical who thought young stars should "do thei...

Just saw this. Very cool.
Not one of mine (obviously) but very well done. Was that one of Alex Ross' covers for the Kevin Smith/Ralph Garman-penned Batman/Green Hornet series?
Yes, that's one of Alex Ross' pieces for the crossover comic. Always a pleasure to revisit.

Meaning the 1968 animated car took more influences from the Gene Winfield Reactor more than that car image you posted from the 1977 cartoon..

Re: Catwoman's (Eartha Kitt's) Kitty Car is coming from Eaglemoss

I was surprised how much "The New Adventures of Batman" cartoon took influence from Eartha's Kitty Car. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4849/46020898381_21b003da02.jpg Kitty Car by Ian McLean , on Flickr Actually, the car Catwoman's vehicle took most of its influence from was the vehicle from the 19...

Re: BAT 77 Episode #05 - The Shapeshifting Felon / The Joker is Spellin'

The Chameleon was one of the better new villains of the series: he was all about business, and not a silly, Super Friends -esque baddie of the week. This was the kind of character that Filmation should have explored in terms of his full potential to cause chaos among anyone he targets or sees as an ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #098: “Three Villains of Doom”: A “Novel” bit of Bat-Merch

Another great one, guys! My older brothers bought this long before I was In the world, but by the time I came along and read it, I did not think it was necessarily "wrong" despite being a TV-tie-in, anymore than coloring books or Whitman's Bat-books which took clear cues from the TV series. In other...
