GALEXO HAS BEEN FOUND! ( 1960's Batman Comic Strip History )

OK, Regular Readers of the Bat-Blog might remember a post done in the past where we were trying to find out about a "Batman character" named Galexo. The short version of a long story is that there was once a syndicated Batman comic strip in the 1960's & 1970's but toward the end of it's run the company lost the rights to represent Batman but actually kept the thing going for a little while with a fake superhero named Galexo...yeah, crazy! The other weird thing is that they kept drawing Bruce Wayne & Dick Grayson, ha ha! But the deal is that these last few strips only ran in a very small amount of Newspapers & finding out what this character even looked like has been a goal of many Batman Historians. Well, my buddy Steve over at the BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY Blog finally found him!! He received an e-mail from a guy named Todd who runs the Barnacle Press ( a blog dedicated to vintage comic strip history ). Todd has an amazing archive of many "lost strips" & was able to find one with Galexo! So, Congrats Steve! WOW! GALEXO has been found!!
