Batman: Ascending Knight

One:12 Collective’s Batman: Ascending Knight by Mezco Toys

   This Batman is gorgeous. It updates his original 1939 look, perfectly. At only $80 (US) it seems pretty affordable for what you get. Will I pick one up? Probably not. I don’t usually go in for higher end collectibles. Vintage is where my money usually ends up 😉  As they say, never say never, though.

   Remember those awesome days when crossing from one dimensional plane to another was as easy as turning a page?  I miss those days. At times the cross-over stories were bat-shit crazy, and that was half the fun. Check out Dave’s Comic Heroes Blog for some in depth detail on the Heroes of Quality Comics, and how they ended up calling on the JLA to help them in their struggle against nazi scum.

   You can find this issue of the classic JLA at Comixology.

   This issue of DC Special Series is a treat. Head over to “A Superman Collector in Hawaii” to read his entry on the issue.

   When I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of Superhero Secret Lairs, and among my favorites were Batman’s Batcave and Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Other than the Cool factor of the X-Men’s Danger Room, I cannot think of any other hideouts that I would rather visit.
