It's official: Best. Batfilm. Everrrrrr.

Check it out, if you haven't already:

Uploaded by Batinthesun. - Classic TV and last night's shows, online.

For me this works as a straightforward narrative, AND this Batman remains as hot as he was in his earlier fanfilm appearance. Woof!

PS. Yeah, I know it's been a while since I posted here. I"m sure I've warned you this would happen now and then. For now, here I am again ... Feels good to be back.

I am a sucker for this kind of image.

Four months pass, and all I give you is another lazy repost. Thank you, Daily Batman:

OK, OK, you deserve more from me after such a long silence.

•From Cracked (which I remember as a second-rate Mad, though its online incarnation seems to work blue fairly often), a list of "The 20 Most Ridiculous Batman Comics Ever Released". It's a nice trip through the Caped Crusader's more embarrassing adventures (the kind Grant Morrison made such mind-blowing use of in killing off Bruce Wayne). Again, a beltless Bat:

•Finally, a link I've been saving for ages now (and I see it hasn't been updated in years): a YouTube channel devoted to Live Action Comic Book Superheroes. It's a grabbag of trailers and clips from Hollywood movies, fan films, TV commercials, vintage serials, and various odds and ends. There's some Bat-stuff, all of which I think I'd seen before, but what really caught my eye was the only fan film devoted to Hourman I have ever seen. The outfit is a bit cheesy, but there's plenty to recommend it to perverts like me 'n' you:
