Movember Batman

Movember Batman

Just When I thought the very talented Tim Baron (Any child of the 1970s/80s will want to check out his creations here) could surprise me no further, he pulls out the funniest Mall Appearance photo I’ve seen in years.

 Seriously, whose older brother is playing Batman here? 

Also,  I know it’s a pen but I wouldn’t bat an eye if it was a Virginia slim in his hand, it totally would fit. 

 This is the kind of thing I’m looking for in my next book “Mall of Justice”. 

 How you can get involved: I’m looking for your photos and your recollections! 

Even if you’ve submitted them to the site before, I would likely need higher resolution and I’d want to talk to you. 

 What am i looking for: Appearances of costumed characters during the 1970s and 80s, be they from comic books (Batman, the Hulk) , cartoons (, toy lines (Masters of the Universe, GI Joe) or movies (Planet of the Apes, Star Wars) , a date and place and a description of how you felt meeting these iconic characters. Did you think they were real?

Does it have to specifically be in a mall:

HECK NO! Car shows, county fairs, grocery stores, heck I’d even accept birthday party shots. It’s all fair game.

    Tom Skerritt is Batman!!!

    Wish I had some photos. I remember a life-size R/C R2D2 visited our local mall back in the early '80s but none of us had a camera… 🙁

    Imagine that….going through life without documenting and photographing EVERY single moment.

    What a concept! 😉

    I'm more weirded out by the hideous tuber-like giraffe plush. IS this the last known picture of these people? (No. It isn't. The giraffe is just an ugly toy, not a man eating demon from the ninth circle of hell.
