Batman 1939 by AndyFairhurst Batman 1939 by AndyFairhurst
My first of 3 contributions to the Poster Posse's week long 75th birthday celebration of Batman. 2 more will be revealed during the week. In the meantime go and check the rest of the cool posters in Phase 1 blurppy.com/2014/07/07/the-pos…

This is inspired by and represents the 5 eras of Batman that have meant the most to me during my lifetime. From top to bottom,and in no order of preference, the bat signals are, Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, Tim Burton’s two Batman films, Rocksteady’s ‘Arkham’ series of video games and last but not least the 1960 Adam West TV series.

So, this is a homage to the Batman of 1939? Yeah, I'd buy that. I have a feeling THIS was the idea Bob Kane and Bill Finger had in their head when conceiving the character ;)

Oh, this is good. You have to study it for a moment to note the changing Bat Signals, but how you blend them with motion and lead up to a leaping Batman about to settle on that gargoyle is great! Batman's my favorite superhero. I have to agree with the other commentators: This really captures the mystery and strength of Clap The Batman.

Yay….first comment to me!!!
I'm not a huge fan of these muscled dudes in rubber but you do them with great style…the amount of action you've caught with so much hidden in shadow is beautiful. Plus of course the inclusion of the Adam West logo makes it an instant hit…that show is still the only Batman I never get tired of!!!!

You will also probably be the only one to comment haha! Yeah it's funny how when I was a kid I just thought...it's Batman! But now I love the tongue in cheek campness of the whole thing.
