Batman anthology

Went to a Gurgaon mall for the first time in my life yesterday; most exciting. Watched fat aunties and their fat kids eating fattening food, and bought this book which is a collection of the first 10-11 Batman comics. Excellent stuff, full of old-world charm. Batman (The Bat-man, I mean) kills people and fights off his first few super-opponents - Doctor Death, the mad Monk and Boss Zucco, and falls for his first femme fatale, a burglar named The Cat, who made him forget his fiancee Julia for a bit. Also got to see Robin, Alfred and the Joker make their first appearances. My favourite was this one where Batman foils a fake conspiracy to steal a ruby statue of Kila, the Hindu God of Destruction, beating up mobsters, turban-toting Hindu henchmen and a fake Chinese triad boss in the process.

What IS it about men who wear their underpants over their leotards? And bedsheets knotted round their necks, yet.

Not to mention faux nipples on their body-suits. Gross.

Me, I prefer Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. So ME!

And have any of you seen the TV series Batman with the "Biff", "Wham" (if you have seen it you know what I am talking about).......and the "
same time same bat channel" sign-off ? That was priceless.
