Together with inker Klaus Janson and colorist Lynn Varley, writer/artistFrank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in his saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot, ten years after the Dark Knight’s retirement.

Gallery 1988 Announces Crazy For Cult 9 Opening On November 20, 2015

1

Gallery 1988 announces their most explosive, and technically biggest, show of the year: the annual art exhibit that spawned a million galleries – Crazy4Cult. Entering it’s 9th year, this installment may just be the best ever. With a line-up that consists of 219 artists, the pieces for this show are outstanding. Even with almost 10 years in the books, artists are finding new and creative ways to put a creative spin on their favorite cult movie classics.

The exhibit, originally the first of it’s kind, will feature paintings, prints, sculptures and plush depicting characters, scenes and iconic imagery from your favorite flicks. This year the show standards are still represented, like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands and The Goonies – but new additions like Spaceballs, Clueless and Weird Science found their way into the hodgepodge of influence.

The tradition will open this Friday, November 20th, from 7-10 PM at G1988 (West), 7308 Melrose Ave. This show will be on display until Dec 5th. Artwork will be available first at the gallery Friday night, but then online to purchase, at gallery1988.com, Saturday, November 21st.

MONDO is doing something unprecedented for their next event, “Originals: A Fine Art Show.” Their gallery has celebrated Disney characters, Marvel superheroes, Universal Monsters, Game of Thrones, Cinematic Villains, Batman, and now they turn to the artists themselves for inspiration, unleashed to produce original works of art and screen prints with complete artistic freedom. “Originals: A Fine Art Show” will open on Friday, November 13, 2015 and run until Saturday, December 5, 2015 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX.

MONDO loves movies, comics, TV and have equal passion for the artists that produce beautiful representations of the pop culture things they love. For this show they’ve set the artists loose to create anything they want with only one rule – no pop culture allowed. The result is one of the strongest lineups of artist the gallery has ever produced.

“We’ve become known for showcasing artistic interpretations of licensed properties, but we also want people to know that these same artists are sometimes even more exciting when they are presenting their own narrative. Our gallery will always be focused on films, TV, comics, etc, but that is all off limits this month,” said Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

The show will feature dozens of original artwork and screen prints.

Bob Kane To Receive Hollywood Walk of Fame Star On October 21, 2015

1

Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame includes stars devoted to such luminaries as Humphrey Bogart, Jack Nicholson, Audrey Hepburn and Steven Spielberg… and soon, Batman creator Bob Kane.

As revealed this morning by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Kane will be receiving a posthumous star in the category of Motion Pictures for his creation of Batman—a character who has successfully made the leap from comics to film more times than any other Super Hero.

The ceremony will take place on October 21, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PST and will feature both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice filmmaker Zack Snyder and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee as guest speakers, as well as the Batman v Superman Batmobile.

Bob Kane

While a star on one of Hollywood’s most famous landmarks is already an amazing achievement, it’s actually not the only one that the Dark Knight will be earning that day. The character will also be awarded the Guinness World Records Title for “Most Film Adaptations of a Comic Book Character.”

Unique giveaways are planned for fans in attendance and costumes are encouraged, especially Batman costumes. If you’re a Batman cosplayer or just happen to have an old Batman Halloween costume in your closet, feel free to wear it.

The ceremony will be located at 6764 Hollywood Blvd. in front of the Guinness World Record Museum.
