Batman Detective Comics #19 (comic-book review).

I’ll confess from the start that other than the LSH, I’m not fully up to speed with all the changes that DC initiated with ‘The New 52!’ Reading this issue of ‘Batman Detective’ and the references within, the Dark Knight has lost another Robin already and his other Bat-associates aren’t exactly happy with him over […]

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down.

And the Infographic of the day is this Spiderman versus Batman financial slap-down. Of course, Peter Parker could never outspend Bats when it comes to the folding green stuff, but is Bruce Wayne happy, I ask myself? All that misery and speaking in a growly voice. I’d rather be a hip young teenager with a […]

The Batcave Companion by Michael Eury and Michael Kronenberg (book review).

I should say from the start that ‘The Batcave Companion’ isn’t actually a look at the various versions of the Batcave, although there is indeed some reference to it but a look at how the down-in-sales Batman leading up to the early 60s was rejuvenated into the Earth-2 version most of you are familiar with […]

The Dark Knight Rises by Hans Zimmer (album review)

No film this year polarised peoples’ opinion quite like ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. It was the cinematic equivalent of Marmite. Fans and laymen alike slammed it, while at the same time the box office takings grew and grew showing that some people enjoyed it. I fall into the latter camp. I recognised the film’s faults […]

The Art And Making Of The Dark Knight Trilogy by Jody Duncan Jesser and Janine Pourroy.

You know how it is. Those nice people from Abrams & Chronicle send me a selection of books and glancing through them, deciding which to read first, when I got to ‘The Art And Making Of The Dark Knight Trilogy’, I started to read first rather than just look at all the pictures. It then […]

Good Knight?

The graphic novel that re-sparked Batman from being a camp crusader against crime into a brooding vigilante, Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, is now coming back at us as a Warner Brothers animated ‘toon. It feels slightly old hat after all the growling Batmen of the big screen, but this is still a classic […]

To the TV room, err, Batcave.

Now here’s a TV room to die for! Elite Home Theater Seating have just supplied seats for this Batcave-themed TV room for a rich client in the USA. It even has a secret bookcase that opens up to display the Batmobile and entrance to the Batcave. We’re taking bets just who this rich client is. […]

The Dark Knight Returns cartoon. Frank Miller happy?

In case you missed it, there’s an animated version of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns coming our way soon. Here’s its trailer. Is Frank Miller happy over this? Well, he’s not Alan Moore, who would automatically have a face like a slapped hobbit over anybody who makes one of his properties into a movie […]
