Batman ‘66: The TV Stories cover by Amanda Conner
I have been tinkering recently with a ElseWorlds story/take on Batman set in that 70s styling. So, from the pages of PULP SUNDAY, I give you BATMAN 1972!
To keep him in “the part”, my Batman smokes, wear a leather coat and a turtleneck, and drives a cool 70s BatMobile (an OldsMobile maybe? ;) I still need to decide on brand and model.
Of course, as usually it happens in these cases, I start to flesh out all the other characters/stars of the story. Pictured above we have Selina Kyle, aka Foxy CATWOMAN, Lieutenant Jim Gordon (with period appropriate ‘stache ;)) and Ed Nygma AKA The Riddler.
Yes, you are witnessing the first case of BATPLOITATION. Hope ya dig it.

This could be great, but it would be even better if Mike Allred was drawing it.
As an action figure guy, I’ve been pretty stoked on Mattel’s upcoming line of 6” Batman action figures based on the 1966 live action TV series starring Adam West. If you’re a Barbie collector, however, you may want to make sure you’re sitting down to look at Mattel’s newly revealed Lee Meriwether/Julie Newmar/Eartha Kitt-style Catwoman Barbie and West-flavored Batman Ken. Each of the cosplaying dolls can now be preordered through the official Barbie Collector site for $34.95 a pop. They’re not expected to ship until June, so if you’re desperate for an in-scale Barbie Batmobile for these two to cruise around in (or, say, a Skipper doll dressed as Robin), now’s a good time to start letting Mattel know.
