Interesting Things On Batfriends Forever

Since I started this group on Ning,  Batfriends Forever, I have come across some genuine stuff that people have posted. It can range anywhere from pictures to videos and yes, even tattoos!
Here's a few of my latest favorites.

                                          Paul Johnson's comic book drawing and Joker Tattoo

Batman Art by Billy Gilson

By far, this is one of my most favorite works done by Billy Gilson I love the most!  His color scheme is wonderfully done, and bringing out Batgirl's true personality.  Here, she looks as if she is saying, "Come on bad boy, give me your best shot!"  He added a nice finishing touch with the shadows of bats flying in the background.  It kind of lets you know that Batman may be lurking around the corner to give a helping hand if needed. You can catch Billy Gilson's latest work here: http://powermasterjazz.deviantart.com/#
Be Sure To Check It Out! 

I find this picture fascinating for several reasons.  Firstly, I love the colors Billy chose which gives it a vintage look.  The next thing is the flow of his work.  The way Batman is clutching his cape shows his hidden strength.  And last of all, Gilson has his unique way of lighting and shading in the background.  I always find this appealing.


I like this piece of work mainly for the fact Billy has captured the feeling of teamwork in this.  Another thing, I like the look on Robin's face.  Here he was able to shed that Sissy Boy look that seems to get tacked on to Robin. Great job, Billy!

Batman - The Darkest Hero of Comic World


Batman - what an important part of pop culture in the world. Batman is the darkest hero of the comic world, and perhaps his popularity is due to the fact that he is not a meta-human; he has no special abilities or powers other than his strength and intelligence, which have been developed through hard work and training.

Perhaps Batman's obsessive behaviour gives us a glimpse of what would happen if our little obsessive behaviours became overwhelming. Or maybe his dark side brings out the dark side of every person.

Maybe Batman's motivation is what draws us to him - his parents' tragic, senseless murder, and a man trying to make sure that no one in Gotham City has to undergo what he did as a child. Whatever the reason, Batman seems to be the most compelling character in comics, ever.






Bruce Wayne (Batman)
Bruce Wayne is a very rich man, who resides in Wayne Manor, on the outskirts of Gotham City. Wayne is the owner of Wayne Enterprises, a very large and successful company. Bruce's parents were killed by a mugger when Bruce was six, and the money that his parents' had was placed in trust, eventually becoming worth a lot. Bruce decided that no one should have to lose their loved ones to crime, and became Batman. During the day, however, Bruce effectively fools people into thinking that he is a rich, stupid fop.

And Driving A Batmobile Makes You Batman?

Here are a few Batmobiles that caught my eye today. I hope you will enjoy them!

Like all the Batmobile models before it, the Super Friends Batmobile came heavily equipped with several on-board computers and a military-grade weapons artillery rivaled in coolness only by the machine-gun equipped Jeep in the The Rat Patrol.


Here's a guy in Sweden, that took a 1973 Lincoln Continental, a cool $1 million spent, and about 5 years crafting a full scale replica of the Batmobile. Now, perhaps we’ve been spoiled by years of high-resolution studio photographs of some of the most beautifully engineered cars in the business, but to our discerning eyes the Swedish Batmobile looks a little, uh, shop class. It took the guy 20,000 hours to build though.

Styled with black painted chocolate fondant Batman resting ontop of the cake which is frosted with yellow special buttercream. One of the cool aspects that I love about this cake is that the maker gave the Bat symbol a face! I find this very original and unique. Hats off to Cupcaketastic!

Comic/Cartoon Batmobile

I found this on Flickr.com and this is what Kenntzel had to say about it, "During the run of the classic series, the comic books and a cartoon series was loosely based on the live action show. This was the Batmobile. It is somewhat based on the Barris Batmobile. A few years ago Polar Lights wanted to release a kit of the Barris Batmobile...but with all the legal wrangling, they could not do it, so they released this one. At the time, this was the closest we could get to the classic car. Not as fancy as the Barris car, but still sleek."

Robin -[Batman 60s TV Series]-

I found this on Flickr.com.
This is what the photographer had to say,

"I dressed like Robin from the Old Batman 60s TV-Series, this picture is taken on the AnimagiC 05 in Koblenz - Germany.

I didn't knw how :
-many people like Robin, there were so many of them screaming "ROBIN! You're my childhood hero!"
-hard it is to find Robins tights. Finally I had to bought these ones which don't have the Robin glimmer but the perfect one had an example in the mall, but not the whole one.. argh.
-many hours it takes to learn that it's nearly impossible to sew gloves."

Batman 1989 - The First Is Always The Best!

The Dark Knight of Gotham City begins his war on crime with his first major enemy being the clownishly homicidal Joker.
I often have wondered that if this movie wasn't such a big success in the first place, would we still be churning out more Batman movies?   You must admit, like all series of movies, the first is the best!  And I think that the same could be said about the 1989 flick Batman.  Not to mention that it won an Oscar, 7 wins and 17 nominations.

Also, this movie has my two most favorite characters played by my two most favorite actors!  Although I must admit that I'm partial to Michael Keaton due to the fact he was born in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, the hometown of my mother and I was born.

And Jack Nicholson has been my favorite actor long before Batman ever came out! Jack did a wonderful job using his seasoned talent to portray the most evil, deranged, and flat out psychotic killer of all comic book villains, The Joker, the complete opposite of Batman.

If these two weren't in the first Batman movie, who is to say that there would be all these other Batman movies to follow.

CAGE CHANNELS BATMAN ADAM WEST for Movie



NICOLAS CAGE channelled TV BATMAN ADAM WEST for his KISS-ASS character, BIG DADDY, because the costume he had to wear was just like a vintage Batsuit.

Nicholas Cage is quaoted as follows, "Big Daddy is my ode to Adam West
who, for me, is the only Batman.

"I grew up watching Adam West and he still has yet to be topped, in my opinion. He had this odd rhythm to his delivery, and I just wanted to tip my hat to him a little bit - to actors like him and William Shatner - who I think really started a whole cultural movement.

"The costume looked like the old Batman outfit and I thought, 'Well, why don't we just go the whole way and my character, Damon, channelling Adam West because that's his Jungian muse - to help him accomplish the things that he accomplishes."

Batman for Duncan

Here is a get well gift that was made by a lady named Carleen. Her little 6 year old nieghbor had to have surgery so she made this 8 x 5 stained glass plaque to help speed up his recovery. I think it is wonderful to know that people like Carleen exist in this world!
Be sure to check out her Flickr profile and see the other wonderful pieces that she makes!

superman vs. Goku, Kalashi vs. batman

I came upon this on Flickr. I think that it was the vivid colors that caught my eye in the first place, but when I read the caption under this picture, " the only manga vs. comic matches that makes sense", I thought to myself, "Ya, they are right!" So that alone is a good enough reason to post this on my blog! Be sure to let any comments on what you think about this.

Cartoon Art Museum - Batman: Yesterday and Tomorrow

This would be great to go see! Cartoon Art Museum, located 655 Mission St, San Francisco, CA, 94105, has an exhibition going on right now!  And it will be running until June 6, 2010. You can contact them by calling: 415-CAR-TOON for more information.

Cartoon Art Museum exhibition: January 30 – June 6, 2010

For over 70 years, audiences have thrilled to the adventures of Batman, one of the most popular and enduring fictional characters of the modern age. From his first appearance in Detective Comics in 1939 to the blockbuster Dark Knight film of 2008, Gotham City’s Caped Crusader has taken on many forms, from cartoonish and campy to dark and disturbed, from daring detective to grim force of vengeance.

The Cartoon Art Museum’s new exhibition, Batman: Yesterday and Tomorrow, showcases six strikingly different interpretations of the Dark Knight, representing some of the boldest visionaries to illustrate the DC Comics icon. Featured artists include Bob Kane and Bill Finger, who created Batman in 1939; Neal Adams, whose detailed artistry redefined comics in the 1970s; Frank Miller, whose graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns pioneered the modern, mature concept of Batman; Pepe Moreno, whose Batman: Digital Justice was the first graphic novel with entirely computer-generated art; and acclaimed artist Paul Pope, whose Batman: Year 100 pays homage to the original Batman comics and looks ahead to Gotham City of the year 2039.


In 1960s Japan, the popularity of the Batman TV show starring Adam West and Burt Ward sparked demand for new Batman comics. The weekly magazine Shonen King secured the rights to publish original Batman manga, which artist Jiro Kuwata wrote and illustrated from 1966 to 1967. These comics were virtually unknown in the United States until author and designer Chip Kidd’s award-winning 2008 book Bat-Manga! The Secret History of Batman in Japan. A selection of Kuwata’s art from Kidd’s personal collection will be featured in Batman: Yesterday and Tomorrow, marking the Cartoon Art Museum’s first extensive exhibition of original manga artwork.

Batgirl Shoes

Here is a pair of shoes that I think even Batgirl wouldn't be able to resist!  I'm sure that they would be a dress up or a dress down that any Batgirl fan would want to use to accessorize her wardrobe. The cutest part is the finishing touch of the lace. It gives it just a little bit of girly to it.
