Figures Toy Company Reveals Its Mego-Style ‘Batman ’66′ Line

Batman 66 Figures Toy Company Batman main
Figures Toy Company

The Mego-meisters at Figures Toy Company have been making 8" action figure waves with their faithful recreations of vintage Batman toys, but this week's image rollout hits like cartoonish onomatopoeia reading "Rad!" A new line consisting of Batman, Robin, Riddler and Joker figures is set to arrive in April, sporting all of FTC's Mego-like style and some very modern touches -- and that's a good thing. After all, these Adam West, Burt Ward, Frank Gorshin and Cesar Romero likeness seem a bit more accurate than what Mego might've manufactured four decades ago.

Robin African American Sean Murphy Scott Snyder Detective 27

So this is pretty cool. Artist Sean Murphy (The Wake, Punk Rock Jesus) is working with longtime Batman writer Scott Snyder on a story for next year's Detective Comics #27, a special 96-page book celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight's first appearance in the 27th issue of that series' original volume in 1939.

The Comics Alliance Halloween Costume Countdown: Robin, Part Two

Robin Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just around the corner, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for a night of costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.

But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’m spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we’re taking a look at Batman’s sidekick as we rifle through the bizarrely popular line of Robin costumes -- and this time, it's for the ladies.

Mike W. Barr On Batman: The Comics Alliance Interview, Part One

Barr01

With a run on Detective Comics in the late '80s that includes some of the best Batman stories of all time and other work that includes Son of the Demon and the co-creation of Batman and the Outsiders, it's no exaggeration to say that Mike W. Barr is one of my all-time favorite writers. Recently, he returned to Batman alongside artist Tom Lyle for a three-part tale of Batman, Robin and deathtraps in DC's digital-first Legends of the Dark Knight, and ComicsAlliance decided to mark the occasion with an extended interview about his long history with Batman.

Today, in part one of the interview, Barr discusses Son of the Demon, the importance of Robin, and his views on whether or not the Batman should kill his enemies.

Ask Chris #160: Gettin’ Older

Q: Does it ever bug you that comics characters don't age in any significant manner? --@sackobooks

A: I'm not gonna lie to you, Sacko: The first time I looked at this question, I dismissed it almost immediately, because to me, the answer seems pretty obvious. I mean, I am a guy whose career is defined by being super into a guy who's been in his early thirties for the past 74 years, so it's clearly not that big an issue. But then I got to talking to Matt Wilson about it, and he made me realize that there's actually a lot there to talk about.

After all, some characters do age. But do they need to?
