Awhile back, here at the Bat-Blog, we featured some Batman/Joker Tattoo Art Photos that had been sent in by a reader named Luis. If you read that post then you might remember that I said he sent us more photos & here are 2 more. The 1st one is a picture of Luis with his lovely wife. For their wedding day he designed some special wedding rings that he had custom-made. OK, you might have to click on the photo for a larger version (where you can see the details) but the 2nd picture is a close-up photo of the actual wedding rings. If you look very closely you can see THE DARK KNIGHT Batman Movie Bat-Symbol Logo on both of them. Now, how cool is that?! Any woman who would allow "Batman" on her wedding ring is certainly worth marrying, ha ha! I wanna wish them all the best & really, they do seem like a very nice couple. Luis, hang on to her, she's a "keeper"!


Over at my Facebook account I have a friend named J.R. Williams. Recently he loaded a few pictures in his gallery showing some recent artwork he did for an art show. Two of them were "Batman-related" so I thought I would share them here. They look like paintings done in watercolor. The coloring is done very well. I know Bat-Blog Readers will love them because they feature Batman! I really really like these & every time I see them I totally crack-up, they're hilarious! ( Oh yeah, since I mentioned Facebook I gotta ask that if you're a member there then please send me a friend request. My "Facebook Button" is located on the top right-hand side of this age ).

Original 1997 BATMAN AND ROBIN Movie Costume Prop on eBay!

OK, I never post links to eBay auction items but this is a very RARE opportunity to get an actual piece of Batman Movie History! A friend of mine, named Markus, is having his friend in Canada sell an item for him from his movie memorabilia collection because he needs some quick cash. He's selling the original screen-used "Robin - Ice Suit Gloves" that Chris O'Donnell wore in the 1997 Batman and Robin movie by Joel Schumacher. The photos here are of those items & then there's a reference photo showing how they looked in the film. You might remember an older post here where we showed his Batman Cowl & Robin Mask that he also owns. For more info, or to actually bid on this item ( the auction ends on April 20th ), click on ROBIN ICE GLOVES.

Our friend Guenter sent this amazing video showing a new villain in the BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM Video Game, it's Harley Quinn!! Of course we all know & love her as Joker's sidekick girlfriend. She looks pretty good in this version. I can't wait to play this game because it just keeps looking better all the time!

Let's Rebuild Len Wein's Comic Book Collection!

Some of you may know about this already, but comic book legend Len Wein's home was recently destroyed by a fire, along with most of his and his wife Chris' possessions. The entire family was saved except for their pet dog, who died in the fire. Len's entire comic collection is now gone, so Mark Evanier is helping spearhead an effort to replace all the comics Len wrote ( and that's a lot! ). So please click the banner below to read more about the project, and if you have some books you can donate, you can email Mark and tell him which books you plan to send. Len Wein has given many of us untold thousands of hours of entertainment, so please make a donation if you can. He wrote many Batman & Detective Comics plus not only created Wolverine ( shown in photo shaking movie star Hugh Jackman's hand ) but also invented the Swamp Thing too! Like I said, the guy is a legend, but more important than that he's a pretty nice guy.

First Look at Batman's WEDNESDAY COMIC Newspaper By DC Comics

You might remember awhile back here at the Bat-Blog we announced a new format of comics that DC Comics is undertaking called "Wednesday Comics". Basically it's gonna be like a Large Newspaper with 16 pages, printed on broadsheet-size newsprint, featuring weekly stories by the best comic book creators out there. This example shown here of the "Batman Section" was written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Eduardo Risso. The artwork looks terrific & this whole "newspaper thing" sounds like a very cool concept. Now, DC Comics seems to be kinda vague right now as to the exact release date but keep an eye out because it should be arriving soon. When we get more information we'll let you know so please stay tuned to the Bat-Blog! ( Thanks Brian for sending the link ).
