The Coolest BATMAN Collectible on the Web Right Now

This is something different.

The other day, I posted a piece about artist Andy Fish and his wonderful Batman project — an unauthorized, full-length comic that pays homage to the Golden Age. (Click here to check it out. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.)

From The Death Ray of Hugo Strange

One aspect of Andy’s comic — The Death Ray of Hugo Strange — is its use of elements from the ’40s Batman serials. It’s a passion within a passion near and dear to Andy’s heart. So much so that he’s self-published another project: The Batman Pressbook, a collection of news materials related to the serials.

The publication reprints the 1954 re-release press book for the 1943 serial, starring Lewis Wilson and Douglas Croft. It also includes original ads, lobby cards and an article from a 1963 issue of Screen Thrills Magazine, which covered both serials.

Just check out some of the pages:

This is a great piece of Bat-ephemera. And it’s dirt cheap. Andy’s selling it at cost: $2.38 a pop, plus shipping and handling. He’s selling it at cost. He just wants to spread the word about these underappreciated chapters of the Caped Crusader’s history.
