  1. Enjoy the 4th of July With a Marathon Featuring the People Who Really Matter in Your Life: Batman

    Every bat-time. One bat-channel.

    IFC is running a Fourth of July marathon of the 1960s, Adam West Batman TV show today! For freedom! Today has 10 hours of Batman in store for you going in order from the very first episode, so take a look at the schedule after the jump. There's nothing more American than sitting inside all day watching Batman. (Either that, or I don't understand America at all.)

  3. The Adam West Batman TV Series Actually Saved the Batman Comics, So Here’s Some More Trivia About It

    Holy trivia, Batman!

    Everyone has nostalgia for the campy 1966 Batman TV show, but without it, we might be living in a Batman-less world. It revitalized slumping sales of Batman comics at the time, despite readers' complaints that it also brought too much campiness to the book. That's just one of the little known facts we learned about the show today.

  4. Starting Today, Get a Free DC Digital Comic Every Day for a Week

    DC makes us thankful for free, because free is always better.

    If you're looking for an easy entry point into some comics, DC is giving away #1 issues of several Digital First comics for every day of the next week starting today. The Digital First comics are exactly what they sound like; they come out online before they're printed, so if you lack a local comic book store, these might be for you.

  5. Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

    What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?

    Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

  6. Holy Geeky Documentary Batman! PBS’ Pioneers of Television Takes on Superheroes. [VIDEO]

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Watch Superheroes on PBS. See more from Pioneers of Television.

    I'm a low-level documentary-a-holic (shut up, it's a thing), and when the documentaries are geeky it's even better. And yeah, this episode of PBS's Pioneers of Television, about the superhero shows of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, is narrated by Ryan Seacrest. But I can let that slide if I'm watching Lynda Carter, Julie NewmarAdam West, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and more talk about the history of superheroes on TV for an hour.

  7. Honey Boo Boo Has a Comic Book, and Now There’s Variant Covers

    We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.

  8. Michael Keaton Talks Batman, Beetlejuice, and the New Robocop on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

    WTF with Marc Maron is one of the most popular, and best, podcasts on the Internet. It's on the radar of most comedy geeks, but Maron interviews people from a few different worlds, including the world of Hollywood. The latest episode features an interview with Michael Keaton, who many forget started as a comic, and the two talked about Batman, Beetlejuice, and Keaton's role in the upcoming Robocop reboot.

  10. It’s Like Cosplay For Your Eyes: Elaborate Eye Make-Up For Geeks

    My Precious!

    We've featured the work of phantasmagorically talented makeup artist Jangsara here before. We can't help it, every time we come across more of her work we spend a good fifteen minutes just pawing at our computer screens, contemplating whether it makes any sense at all to go on a MAC shopping spree to try these looks on our own eyes, even with our less-than-steady hands. Her work is always good for filling our daily quotient of Pretty Things to Look At, and these recent efforts are no different. Click through to witness some of her geek-inspired eye-art, and make your peepers a little bit jealous.
