Timothy O'Neil does an epic liveblog while watching the notorious "Batman and Robin"...and concludes that Joel Schumacher may not be Satan after all:

A Twitter account devoted to cataloging all those helpful signs and labels that were plastered all over everything in the 1966 Batman TV series. Because why not:

What a shame. The Batman show was a huge part of my childhood, and a genuine cultural touchstone. And Yvonne Craig was a big reason why it was so memorable.

It's another round of Friday Night Fights, courtesy of Spacebooger.com (head over there after 11 pm to vote for your favorite fight)!

(art by Bob Oksner, from Jerry Lewis #97, 1966. Yes, Jerry Lewis used to have his own comic. Yes, it lasted over 100 issues. No, I don't know why, either.)

Batman #224
Neal Adams

And here's the obligatory Neal Adams cover. ;) His work combines meticulous draftsmanship with an eye for dramatic composition, and his covers always command attention. Here we have a classic cliffhanger: A battered and helpless Batman, about to be thrown to his death. The massive figure of the bad guy dominates the scene. He's scary and formidable, rippling with muscles as he hunches over the defeated hero. There's no elaborate death-trap or intellectual puzzle involved here... this guy just beat the crap out of Batman, and is about to finish him off! Adams' artwork announced to the world that the tv-influenced "camp" era was over, and Batman was now Serious Business.

This one has personal significance... it's the first Batman comic I ever remember owning. The interior art by Novick and Giordano is pretty sweet too.
