Reading Comics? Spot a Batmobile? Post It Here!

I like it! And I don’t know why Batmobiles always have to be all black. I could see a white, red, and yellow one with a puppet.

Why that’s no ordinary puppet, that’s.

Huzzah for Gerry Anderson!

The very first Batmobile was just a regular red car Batman drove around in. I think a couple designs in the 70’s were very dark blue too.

Oh yeah, now that you mention it, I think it was blue through the '80s-'90s, too. I’ve always loved how uncoordinated the '66mobile is with Batman himself . Blue (purple?) and gray with black and…red? It looks like someone else’s car.

That’s true. I never thought about that before. George Barris was a master designer, so he gets a pass.

The Dark Knight Returns style bat emblem is interesting, and in that one profile shot it looks like it’s hovering, rather than…wheeling.

Norm Breyfogle, I salute you!

The interior’s really interesting, too, with one central seat basically encircled by a computer bank.

@biff_pow Bravo work good sah!

I’m also admiring your use of “howdy doody”. Quite capital, yes.

Thank you, Vroom, I was freestyling. A more conventional person might just say “boy howdy,” but I like to innovate.

Also I fixed the Official* Batmobile Spotter graphic because it was sucking the life out of me.

OK, but here’s the real question: does the arm in the tattoo on the arm in the tattoo have a tattoo?

Well, we know all cars DO fly in the future, so I say yes, Spotter Don-El. I’m gonna have to read this issue.

Talk about developing your brand…I can hear the trumpet rapidfiring beginning of the later “Batman” theme as I look at the odd upper left Batman circle as well as the Batman Bat logo!!!
