Diamond Select Toys released another a new vinyl bust bank this week that you will be able to add to your Batman collection. The bad news? It’s the Penguin, and he wants your money.
It was revealed during the Warner Bros. Television Takeover panel at the New York Comic Con that Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman) has been cast to play The Penguin’s father on the hit FOX television show.
Many of you know Cameron Stewart from the current Batgril series, and today’s art moment features a character from the Bat-verse, but not the one you see in the comic pages.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 11, is a day that many Bat-fans have literally been waiting decades for! On that day, Batman: The Complete Television Series will vroom onto both DVD and Blu-Ray discs.
As a Batman fan, one might expect that I’m excited about the upcoming Gotham series just because it’s Batman. But, in reality, I’m excited to see a crime drama based in the DC universe that is as close to GCPD that we are going to get right now. Plus, with the actors that are being lined up, who wouldn’t want to check out this show? There’s a brand new trailer for Gotham that shows off the villains, and now I can’t wait to add it to my weekly subscription when it lands on iTunes.
Gotham keeps rolling out the character images to introduce us to the characters for the upcoming Jim Gordon centered show. Check out Selina Kyle and Penguin now!
