Legend of the Bright Knight: History of the Adam West Batman TV Show

   The Nerdsync team has outdone themselves on this tribute video. If you watch, and rewatch, only one Adam West tribute then it needs to be this one.

Adam West, and the Fate of “BATMAN VS. TWO-FACE”

Here’s what’s going on with the animated sequel…

   Adam West’s last performance. I cannot wait to see this. We are finally getting the Batman (66) / Two-Face face off  that we’ve, and by “we’ve” I mean ME, have always wanted. Bill Shatner as Two-Face? This is going to be Bat-Tastic! Adam and Bill started out on a pilot for “Alexander the Great” in the 60’s. This will be a wonderful send off for a very kind, fun, and funny man.

Farewell, Old Chum…

   Growing up in the 1970’s, Adam West was the only Batman I knew. There was no other. Sure there was Olan Soule, from the Super Friends, but still. I was one of the few who didn’t make fun of the original series when the 1989 movie came out. Everybody I know did. I still loved it. There was room in my fandom for both, and there still is. Thanks for the memories, Bat and otherwise, Adam. You shall be missed.

That Time DC and Marvel Joined Forces

   In 1996, something happened that most superhero comics fans thought was impossible: DC Comics and Marvel mashed their characters together into an all-new fictional construct. The Amalgam era was truly a once-in-a-lifetime event, because the comics published during this brief experiment probably aren’t getting reprinted anytime soon.

   I remember when this all happened. I was 26, and I was still collecting with a passion non-stop since I was 9. This was an exciting event, at least it was to me. Since the very beginning I had always been a “Big Two” fan. The stables of DC and Marvel had always been a mainstay in my collection. Sure, I had several titles like Shuriken, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Beast Warriors of Shaolin, and Vampirella, that I would pick up from time to time. But I digress… the Amalgam universe was special, I didn’t get into all of the pairings, but I really enjoyed the concept. There wasn’t an issue that I would miss. It was incredible, here was a set of monthly books doing what I had been doing since I was a child, fusing my favorite heroes into all new characters.

   In 2006, I ceased collecting. Occasionally I have dabbled in an issue or two, but nothing to involved. With the digital age of comics being ushered in, I felt it was time to check back into the worlds of DC and Marvel. I’ve replaced much of my physical collection with digital issues, except my original X-Men (Jack Kirby through Jim Lee’s run). Recently I’ve collected Future Quest and the Superman titles, Marvel hasn’t piqued my interest. Now if they would bring back the Amalgam Universe, or even another round of JLA/Avengers, then I would be all in… again.

   Oh Internet, is there anything that I can remember that you can’t locate? I was thinking back on an eraser set I had back when I was 10 (1980). Lo and behold I found them. Not only did I find them, I also found this awesome blog post that,is very informative, about them. The only thing I had to go on was the name on my favorite piece… HORTA. I have fond memories about these erasers. They were toys that were acceptable in the classroom, so it was as if I was getting away with something 😉

    Looking at them now, I am more drawn in by the blue Cyclops Robot.

MOONBASE CENTRAL: FOCUS ON S.T.A.R. TEAM


   Being someone who’s extremely fond of the Zeroid  robot  range by Ideal Toys, which appeared in 1968, it’s not  surprising that I also have a soft spot for some of Ideal’s S.T.A.R. Team action figures.
