Nice haul, Keith. I especially like the Batgirl art.

Looking at it makes me pose a question to you and everyone else. She started out in the comics with a black outfit (as we see in this introductory image) and then later moved to a grey one. What's your preference? I, myself, prefer the later grey one as it seemed to have a better overall fit, color-wise, with the rest of the costume - especially the blue of the cape and cowl. Even though I prefer the grey I will admit the black costume makes a nice contrast to the yellow of the boots, gloves, belt, and emblem and I wouldn't have been disappointed had they originally chose to stick with it.

The wife gave me a Thomas Kinkade Batman 1,000 piece puzzle for Christmas. I'm over the moon on this one as I'm a big fan of both and to have my favorite painter artist doing my favorite comic character is just awesome. Some of you may know how famous his style is for the lighting effects in his paintings. I love that he captured that with Gotham City's moody look and feel along with inserting Batgirl, the Batmobile, all the main villains, and even Commissioner Gordon and Dick Grayson's Nightwing in the distance on the rooftops. Lots of associated names written in as easter eggs as well. It's about 26" x 20" so it's going up on the wall when it's finished. For those interested she picked it up at Wallyworld.

Black Batgirl Costume for me, I love Infantino's original design-- striking against the blue and it makes her stand out from Batman's then blue and gray while paying homage to the Detective Comics 27 first Batman's blue and black cape.

Great puzzle-- really well done.

Snagged this t-shirt with the art from Michael Cho's variant cover of Detective Comics #1000 on it at GameStop.

I looked for that shirt at my Gameshop and couldn't find one. Still, good pick-up, Keith.

I've only been in Gamestop a couple of times. I didn't realize they sold toys. I did pick up these two Batman statues while I was there.

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?
