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!
If you're like me you're really getting excited for The Dark Knight Rises, but what to do with all that bat-excitement until then? How about drawing your very own Batman!
Just follow the 10 simple steps below and impress your friends with your own Dark Knight.
Not bad, huh? You should try out my other how-to-draw tutorials too:

Over the years I've been sort of a casual collector of superhero coloring books. Either flavor (Marvel or DC) is fine by me, as long as they're goofy. And,frankly, the goofier the better!
So when I find a good silly uncolored one on Ebay, I snap it up, scan it in, and share it here at the blog.
Here's some of my favorites! (BTW, click the images to download the PDFs.)
I've got more coming to share soon, but that should keep you coloring and entertained for a good while! Enjoy!
In years past I've posted some really great superhero themed Valentines, so just in case you missed them:
Don't miss the SuperFriends Action Valentine Playbook! I scanned 'em in nice and big so you can download 'em and print them out for your own use!
And here's some great old Batman ones too! Happy Valentine's Day! ZOK!
