DC Comics has released the cover images and solicitation information for titles arriving in February 2013, that kicks off Justice League of America, and Vibe!
Or – “Batman! Always Batman! Always Driving Us Bats!”
The saddest part about the popularity of Batman comes in the fact that the various incarnations of the Dark Knight (from Dick Sprang to Adam West to Deidrich Bader) get short shrift in favor of whatever is the latest and most badass. (Witness the Major Spoilers Podcast’s inability to talk about Batman without mentioning Christopher Nolan.) While I like Batman, I think that one of the most awesome parts of the character is his flexibility, and how he is as much at home fighting Ras Al Ghul as he is dog-fighting the ghost of the Red Baron. Will Detective Comics impress or distress? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
With plenty of Batman statues released over the years, Gotham city’s most evil is out to take revenge on the world. Joining the ranks of such greats as The Dark Knight Returns Batman vs. Joker is another classic Batman story come to life in BATMAN THE KILLING JOKE THE JOKER! A 1988 graphic novel by Alan Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland, The Killing Joke is a story about Joker and how he came to be the Clown Prince of Crime. Other than an interesting origin story for him, the book also features one of the most famous scenes in the history of comics: Joker shooting Barbara Gordon (which would in turn lead to her becoming the hero Oracle). Almost as famous as its contents is Joke’s iconic cover image, captured for the first time as an ARTFX Statue!
This past weekend, The Batmobile Tour made a stop in Dallas at Cowboys Stadium, and we’ve got a collection of pics from the event.
There’s a new Batman fan film that has been unleashed, and it is worth checking out.
If you are looking for an ego-breaker, try this one on for size – the Batmobiles are more popular than you (yes, including the Batman & Robin movie car). The movie and television cars are so popular that they are going on tour, and your first chance to see all the cars is this weekend in Dallas, Texas.
The hit video game series is coming to a Lego aisle near you! Join up with Batman and Robin as they try to take down the likes of Poison Ivy, Joker, and Penguin! You really need to take the jump and see all of what this set has to offer.
When I see the words “Lego”, “Fan made”, and “Batman” all in one sentence my days becomes brighter. Hopefully these pictures of a fan made Lego Batcave will brighten your day as well.
Holy bad back, Batman! A guest lineup change and a personal message from Adam West himself:
