With the current release of a brand-new DC Comics Batman Comic Book title called RED ROBIN. I thought I would make this special “RED ROBIN VS BATMAN” Desktop Wallpaper that you can use to brighten your desktop or use as a background in a MySpace layout…enjoy!
For these week’s “Wacky Wallpaper Wednesday” I thought I’d go with a POISON IVY theme. The 1st image is a photo of an original animation cel from Batman: The Animated Series. I have always loved that cartoon & still do. The art direction on that show was top-notch! The 2nd wallpaper is an incredible drawing of Poison Ivy sent in by a Bat-Blog Reader ( & amazing Graphic Artist ) named DC Miller. He really drew this & I think it’s great! She looks more like the comics version than the cartoon series but I love the clean sharp lines & great coloring too. Be sure to stay tuned to the Bat-Blog because every week we have feature more backgrounds!!
OK, I know that yesterday was the official launch of the brand-new BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM Video Game! But awhile back I made a promise to join-in on a special event on August 25th where 14 Comic Book Superhero Blogs teamed together to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of SUPER POWERS Toys! Maybe you noticed all the craziness yesterday, ha ha! It’s still going on but I knew I had to take a little break to talk about this awesome new game! So, to honor the new bat-game I created these 2 new ARKHAM ASYLUM Desktop Backgrounds. These babies both feature one of Batman’s coolest super-villains KILLER CROC ( or is his name Killercroc? )!! Either way he’s very scary & I hope you enjoy them!! Also, if you would like other AA wallpapers or info just click on the word “Arkham Asylum” down below in the “Labels” area. That will pull up all the recent posts about the game. There are many more backgrounds & video to enjoy. Plus, I’ll be doing more posts in the next few days so keep an eye out for those, whew!

I thought this image would make an extremely cool Desktop Wallpaper! So, please be sure to check it out. It’s the Classic Bat-Boat from the 1966 Batman Movie & TV Series. Here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:
“The first appearance of the BAT-BOAT was in the 1966 film BATMAN. It was subsequently used in the 1960’s BATMAN TV Series.
It was created by Glastron Industries.
Mel Whitley and Robert Hammond designed the Batboat from a Glastron V-174. They added a red flashing beacon, glowing eyes, batzooka hatches, seats for both Batman and Robin at the front of the boat, twin wind screens, a center console, an outdrive jet cover, and an aft to deck cover with a glowing Bat-Signal on the tail fin. Although the boat was powered by a Merc Cruiser Chevrolet V-6 and Attwood Corporation manufactured the hardwire, a water squirter and a jet nozzle were added to make the Batboat look like it was nuclear-powered. It took 31 days to build.
Eventually, a replica was built of the Batboat. When the Batman television show was cancelled, Glastron used the two Batboats for promotions on tours. After much touring, the boats were sold. One boat went to a Glastron dealer who was a Shriner. He used it in various Shriner parades. This Batboat was then moved to the Car Stars museum in Gatlinburg, Tennesee.”

OK, This week I thought I would post 2 Batman Wallpapers that celebrate great comic book artists. The 1st one ( Harley Quinn ) is done by our friend BroHawk & the 2nd background is by Classic Comic Book Artist Berni Wrightson. Yeah, I like these a lot!! If you have any suggestions for future wallpaper ideas then please let us know….we aim to please!
A friend of the Bat-Blog, named Jeffery, sent us some really wonderful high-resolution art the other day of a few brand-new Batman Comic Book covers. The artwork features a lot of really great characters: Batman, Penguin, & even Batgirl! So, I thought I would make some Wallpapers you can use as a background in a MySpace Layout or as cool graphics for your desktop. Yes, I know, & it’s NOT even “Wacky Wallpaper Wednesday”, ha ha! ( Thanks Jeffery! )
OK, Does everybody remember when we showed our friend Leon’s amazing 1966 Batman Bat-Suit Costume he made & the cool manikin he found to display it? He even went on to create a wall mural as a background for the thing, it’s really cool! Well, it looks like he hasn’t stopped there! Shown here are 2 extremely awesome POP ART Paintings that have been done with imagery from the classic 60’s TV Series. One of them looks like a color photo showing Adam West & Burt Ward in costume on the set. The 2nd one is an image from the animated intro to the TV show. They’re both really well done. Thanks Leon for keeping us up to date on this project, you guys are doing super-great stuff here!
(( Important Side Note: The Bat-Blog made the 1st image of Batman & Robin as a Desktop Wallpaper Background, enjoy! ))

To celebrate Warner Bros’ excellent choice of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle ( Catwoman ) in the next BATMAN movie, “The Dark Knight Rises”, I decided to make this Cat-Tribute Wallpaper. OK, it does look kinda cheesy but I promise to make another one that’s better… for now, you’ll have to use your imagination. MEOW!

Here are a few BATMAN LIVE “World Arena Tour Batmobile” Wallpapers I made last night to brighten your desktops. They feature the amazing photography of David Ellis, one of the Official Photographers for the UK show. They’re very minimal, just the car, but they make really great backgrounds. Please give them a try! Also, don’t be greedy & please share them with all your friends, ha!

OK, Long time Bat-Blog Fans know the drill. Every Wednesday we post a few custom-designed BATMAN Wallpaper Backgrounds for you to enjoy….so, enjoy! The 1st one is an homage to 1970’s Batman. I think this artwork was originally the comic book art of Neal Adams, a Bat-Fan favorite! Then, the 2nd one is a parody of the 1960’s TV Series Logo. It says, “HENCH”, referring to “Henchmen”. This is all about some characters on the modern day TV Cartoon, The Venture Bros. On that show there’s an evil Super-Villain named “The Monarch” & he has a very large team of Henchmen. This graphic design is actually from a T-Shirt & if you would like more info on that then just click HERE!
