This guy has done his home work!!!!

Batman Short Film: The Rat

Here is a cool little fan film, done well.
The following is taken from the films YouTube site;

This film initially was made with the good hopes of gaining the attention of the esteemed filmmakers of the most recent Batman film franchise. The actors only hope was to submit themselves for consideration in ANY role that may be required. What began as an audition reel resulted in this promotional piece that all felt ownership in. From the Director to the Writer, to the camera man and PA, we all hope you enjoy, THE RAT. - And Chris Nolan, please give us a call!

Captain Marvel and the Lie Detector-Canada-1942

 In my quest for Canadian Comics, here's some news about an "exclusive" Captain Marvel comic sold in Canada during WW2

BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY: Captain Marvel and the Lie Detector-Canada-1942
Odds are that unless you were in Canada in 1942 or a subscriber to THE BUYERS GUIDE FOR COMICS FANDOM in 1973, you have never seen this CAPTAIN MARVEL story no matter how big a fan you might be of the Big Red Cheese. In the early seventies, around the time DC brought back SHAZAM, TBG began running some old stories in their entirety that DC would never have printed. 
Lots more pics of the comic at the link above!!

READ the whole article here.

A new LIVE ACTION show that's is premiering in England this year....and hopefully touring the world soon!

It’s a play of sorts, but it’s going to be performed in Britain’s biggest, grandest arenas rather than theatres. There will be acrobatics, pyrotechnics, stuntmen, supervillains and screeching Batmobiles on a 100ft-wide, 60ft-deep performance area. Behind them, a giant video wall will flash panels from comic strips and special effects, and give the appearance of interacting with the live performers on stage.
