  1. This is excellent. The late 80s ones are dreadful, aren't they?

  3. Typenerd, indeed. Things are pretty bad when you can't even thrown in friggin' Bat symbol behind the type. And those "New Adventures"-era comics? Man, they sucked.

    GSB, thanks.

  5. That 1972 Batman looks a little like the X-Men's Wolverine, especially with that subtle drop of off-white/yellow on the crown of his head.

  8. Since your blog is hosted with blogspot, you should be able to post your photos to them. Cut out the middle-man and pass the savings on to uhhhhhh me.

  11. heard a lecture on graphic logos. one sample they used was the batman emblem (on his chest). this ph.d dude said that the circle was (a) actually a sillhouette of a bat flying across the moon as backdrop; (b) it represents the bat signal refracting from the clouds and (c) the dark knight is nocturnal. any truth to this, batgeeks?

  12. According to Jeph Loeb when asked this in an interview it's for 2 reasons.

    1) For the comics the yellow makes a godd contrast against the black of his batsuit (this is why the belt is yellow too)

    2) It makes a target for criminals to shoot at, deflecting attention from his head which is quite vulnerable.

    Hope this helps
