In an alternate universe, or rather city, lives a Batman that does not have the luxury of gadgets and expensive Bat mobiles. In Rio, Argentine photography collective M.A.F.I.A. has made a kind of sad, kind of humorous series about a homeless and penniless Dark Knight. The series is a simple but interesting perspective on the […]
We just found out about Daniel Kish, a Californian who has been blind since he was a baby, but then went on to lead a fairly active life — he hikes and cycles — thanks to some sort of mad human echolocation. All he has to do is make repeated tongue-clicks to build a mental […]
Francesco Francavilla has an awesome name, which is befitting as he is also an awesome artist. Re-imagining Batman in a 70’s exploitation cinema style, with its pulp stylings, seedy characters and muted oranges, Francavilla has made The Dark Knight, well, not so dark. Batman and his rogues gallery lends itself well to the exploitation style, […]
Lamborghini unveiled this sleek new car that bears a striking resemblance to the iconic Batmobile. Revealed at the auto maker’s 50th birthday party, the car seems to be a little birthday present to itself. It’s a ridiculously beautiful, high performance car that doesn’t leave room for a passenger. As strange and egotistic as that may seem, it’s true. The car can […]
We don’t know how we ended up at this gem online with these unlikely mashups of Japanese and US pop culture. We don’t know what kind of demented mind thinks of something as random as Kawaii Batman, Doreamon Alien or, yes, even a Pika Fuhrer — but we dig it.
So apparently Batman is not only working hard to keep Gotham safe and orderly, but he’s also picked up a side job keeping the US Army in line. Bagram Batman shows up in several of their training videos to combat laziness, sloppiness, bad manners, and idiocracy. Dressed in a US Army uniform, combined with his […]
What if Batman left his movie and invaded all the other classic movies? Imagine him as the little boy from Home Alone, or Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz. I love Batman parodies, and this is quality stuff!
If sympathy for Batman could be captured and sold in any one product, the Batman Family Car Decal would be it. It features two gravestones, one for Bat-daddy Dr. Thomas Wayne and the other for Bat-mommy Martha Wayne, as well as one Batman with a sadface. Fine, so this Thinkgeek product was an April Fool’s […]
Spotted via io9: a graph of the popularity of the name ‘Bruce’ from the 1880s to today. Somewhere in the 30s, parents really dug the name and named their kids Bruce in masses, propelling the steep ascent of the name to super-popular usage. Then, usage of the name spiked in the 50s with micro rises […]

So, that Batman guy. He fights crime, zips around in a Batmobile and lives the high-flying life as billionaire Bruce Wayne when he’s not all caped up. No reason why he can’t guard our hard-earned money as well. The Batman money clip by Think Geek — essentially a matte black rubberised batarang that folds — will see that you never lose these cash wads in a fist fight.
Heading over to Metropolis for a vacation to check out Superman’s stomping ground isn’t quite feasible yet, and the shuttle to Gotham City hasn’t yet commenced. But you can get these vintage travel posters for your wall. Dave Ault’s illustrations, covering Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and more DC Comics heroes, give you a minimalist mid-century travel feel.
