Sensational Superhero Shirt! Spider-Man! The Madness of Mysterio!

Back again with another terrific tee, featuring classic graphics! This time, it's a shirt that spotlights the colossal cover to 1968's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #66! This famed cover featured art by jazzy John Romita, Sr., and even sports a Silver Age super-foe, Mysterio (say that three times fast)! Click below to enlarge!

ZOWIE! Hot Wheels Batmobile Custom Packages! Batman! Robin! Riddler! Adam West!

One of the major recent events for Bat-fans has been the detangling of the many rights issues pertaining to the 1966 BATMAN TV series! The first salvo that signified that the years-long legal thicket was being cleared, was the release of all new die-cast "TV Batmobile" toy cars, from the collector-friendly Hot Wheels folks! Originally designed for the ABC-TV show by car customizer George Barris, this iconic vehicle was eagerly snatched up by fans far and wide, then and now! But, the recently-released beautiful Batmobile came delivered in some very un-beautiful packaging! The remedy? My own custom packages on which to display the Dynamic Duo's die-cast deity! Feast your eyes on my own eye-popping presentations below! Click images to enlarge!

Above: An example of the deadly-dull packaging in which
the long-awaited Batmobiles were presented!


Above: I used the captivating cover to 1968's BATMAN #200 (by Neal Adams) as the
basis for this one pop-art package! Add a re-closeable "clamshell," and a dynamic
 display is ready!


Above: I always loved this image of actor Adam West as the Caped Crusader, and
here it is (along with added logos and graphics) used as a custom card!




Above: No other 60s BATMAN cover screams "Silver Age" quite like this
one, and it even features a main Bat-foe, the Riddler! Using elements
from the cover of BATMAN #179 (from 1966), this great
Gil Kane/Murphy Anderson art works like gangbusters!


Above: Another great Adam West BATMAN pose, this time I used an "alternate image" from
the famed 1966 TV GUIDE cover photo shoot from the show! Here is another use of
this wonderful action shot!



Above: The first image I ever saw from the BATMAN TV show (even before ever 
viewing the actual program) was the wonderful View-Master set of 3-D reels. 
The above custom Hot Wheels package uses much of the same memorable 
graphics, but with added logos and new formatting!



Above: Using the cover to a sensational '67 coloring book, here is a fabulous
custom Batmobile display! Sure, that's actually the Batboat the Dynamic Duo
is piloting there, but...See this incredible image re-purposed here, too!
