The Batman TV show wasn’t just popular with the kids. It was popular with adults, too.

So, it only went to follow that somebody — or more than one somebody — was going to find a way to sex up the phenomenon.

Enter “Batwoman.”

  1. Rene Cardona’s The Bat Woman is an absolutely wild ride. Powerhouse Films in the UK recently released a limited edition blu-ray set, with a gorgeous, vibrant picture and neat extras, including an 80 page book. I picked it up and can thoroughly recommend it.
