Comic Book News: BATMAN AND ROBIN # 1 Cover Variations

Just a quick post, DC Comics just recently released BATMAN AND ROBIN Number One the other day & so far it seems like a total success. Now, I have not read it yet but all I have been hearing is really great things so that’s cool. One thing I wanted to mention is that this comic book has three different covers to collect. The 1st one photo shows the regular cover. The 2nd one is the variant cover. The 3rd is the special “Sketch Cover”. Personally, I have always hated when comic book companies do this. I mean, they’re just trying to get everybody to buy multiple copies. But I gotta admit that these are pretty cool! Just wondering, has anybody read this thing yet? If so, then please leave a comment down below & let us know what you thought about it, thanks. ( Oh yeah, click on the small photos up above for larger pictures ).

Holy Bootleg Toys, Batman!

Awhile back a good friend to the Bat-Blog, named Andreas, sent us a few photos of his “Bootleg Batman” Collection. I posted some back then but decided to wait a little bit before releasing more. You see, he collects both new & Vintage Batman Toys but one thing he likes to focus on are the wacky-crazy bootleg toys that get made all over the globe. The 1st toy is actually a pin-back button with candy attached. I think he got this in the UK where they don’t say “pins” but call them badges. ( Or was it Mexico? Sorry, forgot ). It’s a rip-off of the Bat-Signal Symbol. The 2nd photo is a “Super Heroes” Action Figure. The Blister Card features graphics with DC Comics, Marvel Comics, AND Power Rangers characters…strange. Also, if you make Batman RED & SILVER, then I guess it’s not copyright infringement, ha ha! The next photo is also an action figure but this one is from Greece. They gave him a trident which is more of a weapon for Aquaman, ha ha. The 4th pic is sort of an action figure. Well, it’s a “Marble Shooter”. Which is kinda weird because kids don’t really play with marbles much anymore. This bootlegger must have been in his 80’s, “Kids love them marble games, aahhhh”. The other weird thing is a Power Ranger makes an appearance on the card & isn’t that small picture of a monster a villain on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The figure is kinda nice though, an “Animated Series” Batman. The last picture is the best. Yeah, I saved the best for last! This is a Batman Theme Song Tribute Vinyl Record with AWESOME Batman Graphics. If I remember right these were made in France, or maybe the UK, & they’re extremely cool! Plus, these are great quality unlike most bootlegs. Now, the main reason for posting these, other than a good laugh, is to show the history of the Batman Toys. I love the bootleg stuff but don’t go out of my way to hunt it down or pay for it. If I come across it at a flea market or garage sale really cheap I’ll get it for a funny display piece. I wanna thank Andreas for taking the time to shoot these photos & for sharing, that’s great, thanks!!

No exact date has been set yet but it’s something to look for in the future.

THE JOKER: Batman Desktop Wallpaper Backgrounds

It’s Wacky Wallpaper Wednesday again & this time I thought I would go with a Joker Theme. Everybody loves the Joker & I also thought it would be nice to do “something old & something new”. First, the “old”. This graphic was sent in by a Bat-Blog Reader who has really great taste. Why? Well, for one, He enjoys reading the Bat-Blog ( ha ha ) & two, because he loves the old Golden Age era artwork by Dick Sprang. This art shown here was a 2-page spread from some publication featuring Sprang’s awesome style. The Joker is prominently featured in the center so I thought that was enough so that it could pass as “Joker Wallpaper”, right? OK, on to the “new” background. Right now you can’t get any more “new” than the soon-to-be-released BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM Video Game. This graphic, showing the Joker’s large evil grin with a picture of the Arkham Asylum building in it, is going to be the cover to the next issue of Playstation Magazine. They have a World Exclusive Story on how the Joker will be a special character you can play only on the Sony Playstation 3 Console.

BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD Musical with Neil Patrick Harris

Yes, you read the title correctly. In the next season of Batman: The Brave and The Bold animated cartoon series they are going to do an episode that is a musical! In other words, all of the characters will sing their lines, YES! This sounds totally wacky crazy & could turn out to be a very artistic & fun thing. We’ll just have to wait & see. I just hope they do it well. The actor Neil Patrick Harris with play a villain named “The Music Meister”. The title of the TV show will be “Mayhem of The Music Meister”. I, nor anyone else, have not received any video trailer footage of this yet but as soon as I do you know it will be posted both here & on my YouTube account, ha ha! So, stay tuned to the Bat-Blog for more future info!!
