Spider-man: Homecoming

I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming Spider-man: Homecoming movie from Marvel Studios and Sony. After his debut in last years Captain America: Civil War, I'm fairly certain that new Spidey actor Tom Holland will carry on the fine tradition of those valiant crime-fighters of the past, who paved the way for today's blockbuster superhero movies...

UPDATE: I've just added an alternate version featuring the 1970's live-action (and my personal favourite) on-screen Spidey, Nicholas Hammond. So, turn up that Dana Kaproff soundtrack, and enjoy!

Bat-Photoshopped by yours truly.

The Mighty World of Marvel!

I received a comment last night on Twitter saying that my Hulk piece had a classic Mighty World of Marvel feel to it. The Mighty World of Marvel is of course, the classic 1970's Marvel UK title that started my love for comics (and of course, the Hulk!) in the first place. So, I decided to put this together... just for fun!

UPDATE: I've also added an 80's style Marvel UK version below. Still only 10p!

Yes, True Believers... at one time, you could get all this for 10p!!!

Adam West: 1928 -2017

Adam West, known and beloved by many fans across the world as the legendary Batman sadly passed away this weekend. Many, like myself, grew up watching the adventures of Batman in the classic 1966 TV series, where, alongside Burt Ward as Robin the Boy Wonder (and later joined by Yvonne Craig as Batgirl), fought the dastardly delightful gallery of villainy, which included the Joker (Caesar Romero), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), and the feline femme fatale Catwoman (portrayed by the beautiful Julie Newmar, with the equally beautiful Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt later taking on the role). In 2016, Adam reunited with both Burt Ward and Julie Newmar to reprise the role in the highly entertaining DC Animated feature Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders... as well as providing the voice of Batman in Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

My first memory is actually watching Batman, and to this day Adam West is still my favourite portrayal of the character. My thoughts and condolences go out to Adam's friends, family, colleagues and fans at this sad time.

My tribute to Adam West, who will always be my favourite Batman.
