silverzeo: Chaud thinking "No way!" (WTF?)
[personal profile] silverzeo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Went on to  CBR last night and just stumble onto 3 different comics about the cast from classic Batman show and... and.... just look...

First: The Secret Lives of Julie Newmar #1

It starts out with Julie enjoying her life, watering her plants and creepy lawn gnome from Goosebumps, when this happens...

Did she really just said "A blood curdling 'Oh My God!"?  There is a page where she falling trough a vortex of tear-able desktop calenders through the years, screaming all the way, when we get this page

.... ugh... the dialogue does not match the artwork AT ALL in this page!

Next, Adam West's Book. The Mis-Adventures of Adam West #2

I didn't left any pages out that were in between these, those are the first 3 pages, not including the western intro that recaps the last issue. Please tell BlueWater previews are shown out of sequence....

Next, we have Burt Ward's comics: Burt Ward: Boy Wonder for FCBD. And compare this cover to the others posted here and tell me whats wrong with it.

... I am not sure if this is either a Bluewater bio comic, or just another "adventure" comic with the celebrity's name tagged on the title, like their "Vincent Price: House of Horrors", but either way, this has to be the blandest cover of theirs ever! I would post some pages of comic to help resolve this question. But CBR has 3 pages, and two of them are just pictures of Burt as "NOT Robin" and himself today, and an purple alien Not Robin. Closest thing to a page is this!

... tell me, just tell me! How do they make these comics? Do they get people's permission before using their images and likenesses for these comics? How do they get money. Do schools buy these comics in bulk for the younger Grade school kids? Are all their adventure books are just has poorly done and jarring as these? Some one explain this for me! I need to vant and rant with the right info to go on!

The Burt Ward one hasn't been released yet so I wouldn't bet on that being the actual cover. It's another "Adventures of..." comic, not a biog, as Burt seems to be headed more down the route of a spin-off cartoon (Hence the animals) than the live action the Julie and Adam ones were.

I should imagine they do get the actors permission in cases like this, since they are featured heavily, and are not "biog" pieces.

By law, they *have* to get the actors' permission, since they're using their likenesses--which are considered intellectual property. Most likely, Newmar, West, and Ward are all getting healthy royalty payments for each issue.

Which, IIRC, is more than they ever got out of the TV series reruns.

Celebrity comics were pretty big back in the Golden and Silver Age. DC had a long running one series for Bob Hope, so did Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

I'm half tempted to pull out the scans for Dorthy Lamour, Jungle Princess.

George Perez has always said he used Burt Ward's appearance as a guide when drawing Dick/Robin, the slightly rounder face Burt had made for better contrast with the likes of Wally West's more angular features.

Oh, you mean the grown up Burt and Tim Drake? Yeah, I see what you mean.

Why is Julie Newmar falling through the Time Tunnel? It was Lee Meriwether that was on the show, they got the wrong Catwoman!

Don't be silly. They should've gotten Eartha Kitt!

I hear this all the time from people who've likely never seen the show or haven't seen it in twenty years. While Eartha was a perfectly competent Catwoman insofar as playing a villain goes, when she took over the role they eliminated every iota of sexual tension and attraction between her and Batman (I'll give you three guesses why). Lee Merriwether was great in the movie, but Julie was most assuredly the best of the Catwomen from the TV show.

brandiweed reminds me that no, they are correct. It was Lee Merriwether in the movie, with Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt on the show.

They got it wrong! It's supposed to be the Mis-Adventures of Adam We!

The Misadventures of Adam West is actually pretty enjoyable. It's kind of a Quantum Leap premise, but it's working pretty good if you ask me.

And Adam West is receiving a writing credit. I'm not sure why this is a problem.
