It's only a few more days until The Dark Knight Rises, and I'm really looking forward to one more dose of the gritty realism that Nolan and company have fostered throughout the trilogy.
That being said, I'm also a fan of the kooky campy 60's TV Batman, so, in the spirit of both approaches to the caped crusader, I'm especially pleased to share this dark, funny, and, well, just downright odd book, It's Fun To Be A Batman! (Click the cover above to download the PDF.)
It's really sort of hard to explain. Apparently someone took existing photos, painted Batman costumes on people in the photos, and then added funny captions below.
Here's just a taste to whet your appetite:
Batman playing sexy football with a peasant girl? HIKE!
Batman at the therapist (who's apparently got a thing for Robin)? PSYCH!
LBJ, some onlookers, and Batman with a pig? PORK!
Oh, there's more. Lots more.
You really owe it to yourself to check out It's Fun To Be A Batman. Enjoy!
