Got my photo signed thru the mail from the 1966 Batman screen test of Lyle Waggoner and Peter Deyell. These are the finalists who lost out to Adam and Burt.
THAT is an awesome piece to add!

With a little research it was pretty easy to do. The digital photo is online and I had it printed out locally. Waggoner owns a company called "Star Waggons" which leases upscale movie trailers for celebs. Deyell is a production manager who is president of American Biograph Films.

Now that is some detective work! Did they just sign it, or did that add any commentary.

Solo 1 by Ian McLean, on Flickr

I noticed a recent mention of the 2004-2006 “Solo” series from DC Comics. The Michael Allred issue, with 60’s Wondergirl on the cover, dancing the Batusi, is definitely in my collection but away In storage. I had totally forgotten that the issue contains a “Batman ‘66” tale, “Batman a-Go-Go”!

So I searched out the 2013 hardcover omnibus of the whole “Solo” maxi-series, which actually has two covers: one with modern Catwoman and the really cool one: with art originally intended for the Wondergirl issue, with the classic Adam West’s TV Batman performing the Batusi! (It wasn’t able to be cleared for rights when originally published as a single comic.) I was sure I had ordered the Batman cover via eBay, but suddenly the site was telling me it would be Catwoman arriving!

The book arrived this week - and it’s the Batusi version! Yay!

Here are the familiar steps of TV's Gotham City Police Headquarters:

A couple of T-shirts. I already have too many Batman shirts and really shouldn't have picked these up.

The Neal Adams Joker shirt was a little more distressed than I would have liked. I don't really like distressed stuff.

Both just signed the photos - however Deyell enclosed a short note "thank you for remembering me"

That note is wonderful. I wonder who is more flattered, you or Peter. I had a similar experience with an artist I heard in the early 70's. I found his email address in the late 90's as asked if he had a greatest hits CD. He said he didn't but owned all his masters, and he sent me a CD and a similar note. Every time I play those songs, I remember his hit bound songs while mowing lawns in those days.

I got mine on eBay "Buy it now". 5 x 20 bags should help me out. They are "Star Stands Type 1", made to fit the original Kenner "Star Wars" figures. They work well with the Funko lines. (The pegs are too thick to fit Bif Bang Pow! figures.)
