Re: BATMAN'S COMIC BOOK ADVENTURES

I love in the Batgirl story how competent she is...taking care of herself. It was reprinted in Batman in the 60s. If memory serves, I like Detective 389....it sort of points to DC maybe going in a darker direction with Batman, but is still very silver age. Plus, it is one of the few times Frank Robb...

Kane and Anderson were awesome on Batgirl. I wish they had stayed on the strip.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #122: Parade of Bat-Parodies

Unfortunately, I have a hard time turning down ANYTHING Batman from the 60s or 70s. I think I mainly wanted the Jerry Lewis issue because I enjoyed Oksner's work on the Super-titles and wanted to see his take on Batman.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #122: Parade of Bat-Parodies

I must have a lousy sense of humor, because I enjoyed the Jerry Lewis issue more than you did. I wasn't really expecting to like it, but Batman and Robin dealing with the after-effects of the show on their image was a pretty clever idea. You mentioned not having a lot of familiarity with Bob Oksner....

Re: Batman Stuff You'd Never Part With...

Well, pretty much ANY of my Batman comics from the 1960s or 1970s. The Batman Strangest Cases Treasury Edition, which I got when I was 6 and which may be my favorite comic that I own. The first Power Records Batman album. My jock dad has always hated that his nerdy son liked comic books. I asked him...

Re: BATMAN'S COMIC BOOK ADVENTURES

Thanks for sharing, Andy. That is indeed a striking cover. Novick gets overshadowed a lot by his contemporaries, but he was a darn good artist. There are some nice Brown/Giella artwork on the inside. I really like the splash page and the top panel of page 4. I may be wrong, but I think this was John...

Re: BAT 77 - The Poison Pen Puzzle (Detective #398)

I agree with you that this wasn't much of an issue. It has dated horribly because I think it was intended to be one of those "torn from the headlines" stories. Maxine Melanie was supposed to be a parody of Jacqueline Susann, who was famous for Valley of the Dolls. I've never read it or see...

I've got to admit, I always enjoyed this one. Maybe I'm not to hard to please. Anyway, the epidote did spawn a bit of merchandising. https://www.80stees.com/products/the-joker-ive-thrilled-many-a-woman-batman-t-shirt I'm glad you commented on it, because I always thought the complete line with the &...

Re: BAT 77 - Paint a Picture of Peril (Detective #397)

Hi JB, A word of warning....Pasko's letters are always pretty negative. I'm glad I didn't read them until after I had read his Superman work, because seeing how acidic his letters were might would have prevented me from enjoying his Superman stories. Pasko co-created Master Jailer. OK, this is a Bat...

The Martin Pasko that you mentioned went on to be a Superman writer during the bronze age. He also wrote an episode of Batman : The Animated Series. As you read through the letters pages, you will notice several future professionals: Mike W. Barr, Alan Brennert, Pasko, Klaus Janson and Doug Moench....

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #120: Can Superman solve "Batman's Great Mystery"?

I have a CD set of some of the Superman/Batman team-ups on the radio. Before your show, I hadn't noticed, but I think Ronald Liss portrayed Robin on the 1960s Batman records

Does anyone else think the voices sound the same?
