ART – Chris Mason’s JOKER STEALING THE 1966 BATMOBILE Painting

OK, I know I’m on sort of a “Batman-inspired Art Kick” recently but we have been getting a ton of cool submissions from Bat-Blog Fans. Plus, I can’t help it that my readers are smart, creative, talented people ( ha! ). Here’s a great example of that creativity in action. This Pop Art Painting was done by our good friend Chris Mason. It shows “The Joker stealing the ’66 Batmobile”. You know the car, it’s the George Barris Custom, otherwise known as the 1966 TV Show version, a total fan favorite! It’s done in that famous Ed “Big Daddy” Roth style that was originated in the Hot Rod Culture of the 1960′s. Just think about those old vintage “Weird-O’s” toys & model kits. Then you’ll know what I’m sayin’! But regardless, the artwork here is just totally great! Actually, I mean to say… completely beautiful! The pictures shown here sort of explain their selves but basically you have a close-up detail shot ( the 1st pic ), a nice picture showing the work in progress, then some photographic proof of Chris actually doing the painting ( in case you don’t believe us, ha ha! ), & finally the completed work. Now the last graphic, showing the final artwork, it’s BIG enough ( if you click on it ) to be made into a Wallpaper Background for your PC. Yes, that’s a bonus! Not only do you get some beautiful eye-candy to look at but you also receive a souvenir of the special moment. Yeah, the Bat-Blog is pretty awesome, I know ( just kidding ). Actually if you’d like to see more of Chris’ work you can visit his Facebook page by clicking HERE! The only problem is I think you have to be a member to sign-in to see it but it’s all worth it.

Oh yeah, if you’re a serious Batman Fan then you’re gonna totally love this new statue coming out! It’s inspired by the 1989 Tim Burton BATMAN movie. I know I really loved that film, it’s a Classic. DC Direct will be coming out with this special art statue as a part of their “DC Comics 75th Anniversary” event. It shows Michael Keaton, as the Caped Crusader, in a full-body pose. I say that because they’re also releasing a small BUST figure too. That piece was featured here at the Bat-Blog awhile back, to see it just click HERE! Anyways, this newer statue is AWESOME!! It was sculpted by Joseph Menna & measures about 13 1/2″ tall, a pretty good size! It comes with a special base that’s in the shape of the Bat-Symbol. Basically it’s hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, & will be a Limited Edition. I really love this thing. If you would like to pre-order it ( as a gift for me or yourself, ha ha ), & save 20% off, then I suggest the following link:

Dave Meets 1966 BATMAN and ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER ( Adam West & Burt Ward )

Here’s a great set of vintage photos sent in by our buddy BatDave. Back in 2001 he was lucky enough to meet both Adam West & Burt Ward! Of course we all know them as Batman & Robin, The Boy Wonder from the 1966 TV series. Thanks to Dave for sending this photo, it’s very cool! Actually, I’m sort of jealous a little bit because I have never got to meet these guys, ha!

Photo – David’s Vintage 1970′s Batman T-Shirt!

Here at the Bat-Blog we love to get Vintage Family Photos from readers that show actual Vintage Batman Products. I mean, it’s really neat to see these special moments of bat-history. This photo was sent in by our friend David. It’s from the early to mid 70′s & shows him wearing a great Batman T-Shirt! Looking in my bat-files, I was able to find the original art of this shirt’s graphics ( shown in the upper right-hand corner ). Thanks to David for allowing us to post this wonderful pic, it’s really cool!!

Hong Kong BATMAN Comic Books

Super Happy Fun Time! Here’s an assortment of some wacky BATMAN BOOTLEG Comic books from Hong Kong. I say “bootleg” because I don’t think they got publishing rights from DC Comics. The artwork is totally crazy & done in a very Manga-type style. I’m not sure what year they came out but I have to guess 1960′s or at least 1970′s. I say that because the monster on the 1st cover reminds me of Jack Kirby’s art. Plus, is that Ultraman on one of the covers? Weird! I also like that they ripped-off Superman, ha ha! Either way I totally love the graphics!


Some brand new comic book art has been leaked from the upcoming BATMAN: ODYSSEY project. Of course it’s done by legendary Batman artist and comics pioneer Neal Adams. Now, we have seen one of these pages before ( the train scene ) but not in color…WOW! The next one features Aquaman & a Giant Whale ( Also, if you look closely, you can see MAN-BAT ). They look amazing!! The 1st issue is set to go on sale July 7th, 2010 so look for it then. In the mean time, click on these pics to make them larger & enjoy some beautiful artwork!
