Batman and Clint Eastwood

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  During this 80th year of Batman, I've been running across a lot of old comments from the Burton/Schumaker Bat flics starting back in 1989.  I kept reading how certain people wanted someone "tough" like Clint (who's name was also brought up with Burt Reynolds for Superman a decade earlier) Eastwood.  This had to be a joke since "Dirty Harry" was 59 years old at the time.

     BUT years later his name along with Paul Newman's for the role again, this time as Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond.  Many radio hosts thought this was ridiculous, thinking that both Clint and Paul were WAY too old for the role.  Only they did not understand the concept of Batman Beyond, being that Bruce was now an old man, guiding a new Batman through the new century about 20-30 years from now.

     Oh well, the media does not understand the true, deep, details of the comic universes, they only skim over the gloss, looking for sound bytes as they go.

Batman and his hound...Ace

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Well I said I would be talking about Batman for the rest of the month on the occasion of his 80th birthday.  So here goes.

     When Ace, the Bat Hound, puts on his mask (why, to keep his identity secure for the safety of his loved ones?  He's just a common looking German Shepard for Pete's sake.) to help the Caped Crusader on a case, does he afterwards find a grassy spot and use it as a facility?

     My real question is, is there a special spot or pouch big enough on Batman's utility belt for a pooper scooper?

     Take care and adopt a comic (one with a super pet in it) book today!

Caped Crusader Event...His 80th!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  In the last couple of weeks, the world has gone so Avengers crazy, that they have forgotten that this month is Batman's 80th birthday.  And to celebrate, Barnes and Noble in Mentor is hosting an event featuring the release of my new book..."Everything Batman."

     May 18, 2019, (Saturday) from Noon -4pm, I'll be signing copies of my new book "Everything Batman" (which includes a bonus book in the back... "Caped Crusader Quotes.").  As the event wears down around 4 o'clock, we will be giving away dozens of old Batman comics (while they last) at a free drawing.  Also there will be some cosplay people there so either look for a favorite hero or dress as one.

     Free Batman coloring sheets for the young at heart and sales on Bat trade paperbacks will be available. 

     Also check out the Batman museum pieces I will be displaying from my personal collection including old toys, comics and statues.  So come on down, talk about Batman with me and remember, wearing Bat costumes will be appreciated.

Is It Safe to Talk About The Avengers Yet?

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Now that everyone on the planet has seen "Avengers: Endgame," I hope I can talk about the flic a bit.

     SPOILER ALERT- I AM going to talk about Avengers!  What was your favorite part?  Mine you ask?  It was when Captain America lifted Thor's hammer and blasted Thanos while Thor chimed in, "I knew it all along!"

     Yes, for only those who are worthy may be able to lift the hammer of Thor.  And we fans of Cap also knew it all along that Cap was worthy, we just never thought about it.

     Take care and adopt (a worthy one, that is) a comic book today!
