Hello everyone, Gary from Bat-Fans here! It's been a real busy couple weeks, but I wanted to take some time to share with you my Batman experiences from this year's Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia! As a more Sci-Fi/Fantasy heavy convention there wasn't a whole lot of Batman comic guests, but TV's dynamic duo Adam West and Burt Ward, were both in attendance this year! in fact, the mayor of Atlanta gave commendations to both and declared September 1st "Adam West and Burt Ward Day!" How cool is…

Ever wonder about how Batman came to be? Well, this quick history lesson should catch you up on why Batman is as popular as he is.
Batman was created in 1939 by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger as a response to the success of Superman. Although Kane is considered to be the creator of Batman (and receives credit on all Batman comics published to this day), Finger did make several important contributions of his own. For example, it was Finger who influenced the look of the character. Not many…

I must have been six years old when Batman: The Animated Series first aired. It immediately had my attention. I’d already seen Tim Burton’s Batman and was eager for more. Burton’s film and the series were my only real exposure to comics and to Batman for a long time after this, and it still surprises me that the series was so good. In the years since it’s left the air, I feel a twinge of sadness. Nothing will ever be made like that again….

James Batman (1966)
During the last Batman Across the Globe, we looked at the 1973 unauthorized Turkish Batman film, Yarasa Adam Bedmen. Which if you got a chance to search the internet and find the film, was quite an explicit interpretation of the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin. However, I bring up that film because I described the character and the villain as being very similar to themes that are present in the James Bond film franchise. And in this segment, I will be looking at the 1966 unauthorized Phillippino film, James Batman.

Recently, there has been a surge of rumors that have hit the inter-webs that after, The Dark Knight Rises is finished, that Warner Bros. is looking to keep the Batmania alive with a live-action TV series.
Now, I encourage you to take this with a great grain of salt but the rumor is that Warner Bros. has put an unidentified executive in charge of overseeing the development and production of a new live-action TV series. The series is being described as a continuation…

What can be said about this rare release from Warner Bros.?While a part me wants to say how amazingly horrible this series was, the other part can't help but to think how great it is to have it released on DVD.
Legends of the Super Heroes was a very short-lived show on NBC in 1979. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera. It was meant to be a TV special and not a series. When it aired there were two parts. The first one…
