Your favorite nerdcore rapper is at it again. Adam WarRock, a.k.a. Eugene Ahn, is putting his deft blend of lyrical skill and comic knowledge into a brand new album, titled The Middle Of Nowhere. We've written in the past about the connections between hip hop and comics, and Adam WarRock is at the forefront of the next wave of emcees to hone their craft while inspired by the comics and characters they love. Simply put, WarRock is dope, and he's just debuted the video for his first single off the album, titled "B.S.F.X." (Batman Sound Effects). You can check out the video, featuring WarRock flanked by ComicsAlliance's own superhero sartorialist Betty Felon and fellow cosplayer AK Wood, below.
It just was only last week that we got word that actress Yvonne Craig had signed a licensing agreement with DC Comics parent Warner Bros. to allow the production and sale of new merchandise and other products -- the first in literally decades -- based on her likeness as Batgirl, one of the most beloved figures from the great Batman television series of the 1960s. It would seem that preparations were well underway before the announcement, because today DC has confirmed the first appearance of Craig's Batgirl in the pages of its startlingly good comics series Batman '66. On sale this week, the story will be written by the book's ongoing writer Jeff Parker and feature artwork by ComicsAlliance favorite Colleen Coover, who joins cover artist Michael Allred and storytellers Jonathan Case, Joe Quinones and Ty Templeton in making Batman '66 one of the very best looking Bat-books DC has published in years.
Warner Bros. Games Montreal has released a new trailer for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins game, revealing two alternative looks for Batman that will only be available for Sony's PlayStation 3. As announced at E3 earlier this year, the Knightfall pack will allow gamers to play as classic Adam West Batman from the 1966 TV show, or as goofy light-up-armor Azrael Batman from the 1993 comic crossover Knightfall.
The Batman '66 dynamic duo portrayed by Adam West and Burt Ward made their Hot Toys debut this past summer at SDCC 2013, but thanks to official promo images fans can get their best look yet at the classic crime fighters in all their 1/6 scale action figure glory. Sold separately, the 12" Batman and Robin figures each come with swappable hands, radio communicators and batarangs, plus character-specific items like shark-repellant and a giant bomb that Bats just can't seem to get rid of.
It's the brand new Internet trend of late-summer 2013: Making your own versions of the 1966 Batman TV series' opening credits, a phenomenon I'm dubbing "Westing." (Maybe we can call the Jeff Parker-written Batman '66 comic part of the trend, too.)
We've enjoyed the work of stop-motion animator Kyle Roberts here before, but he's really stepped up his game now. Check out his fully-realized take on the opening credits to the 1966 Batman TV series, that comes with a Dark Knight Rises framing device, its own recreated music, and cameos!
