The city calm, and the night is dark, but there’s a gloom on the horizon of the newly fallen snow. It’s with this that you realize that there are very few shopping days left until the holidays are over. Well, chances are you’ve got a Batman fan in your life on some level whether they be hardcore fans, new comers or simply a casual gent or lady that enjoys the movies. Well, have I got some last minute, easy as pecan pie solutions for you! Below are several gift ideas that can be presented to your loved ones. One thing that should be mentioned about the below list is that pretty much nothing needs deep understanding of the character’s history. These are pretty safe gifts for any Batfan that you may know, no matter how hardcore. Anyway, let’s get on with this gift guide, shall we?
The thing about Absolute Editions is that, even if I personally don’t like the story, I want the Absolute Edition. Does that make sense? Let me explain. Absolute Editions are presented in the giant hardcover that basically is the same size as the original art, but it’s completely colored and printed on extremely high quality paper. So, any imaginable detail in the art can be experienced, and usually only the most high profile stories with incredibly talented creative teams get the Absolute treatment. Plus, in these editions, there are loads of bonus features that liken them to the most ultimate editions of movie releases. So, with that, let’s move on to the two Batman specific ones on this list.

Each and every week “All DC, All The Time” MK2Fac3 and “There’s Another Publisher Besides Marvel?” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of November 9, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
What day is it? Wednesday? Well, I’ll be chicken feathered! It’s time for new comics! And this week, well this week… is kinda light! Especially on the indie front. There’s a lot of DC and a lot of Marvel this week, so forgive us for going mainstream for the most part this week. But just because they’re mainstream comics, it doesn’t mean that they won’t be good. There’s loads of talent and interesting characters out there, and it just so happens that we’re going to talk about them even if they are a result of the corporate publishing machines. Wait, what are we talking about, comics? Never mind, let’s do that! Here’s a bunch of new comics that are coming out this week!
DC Comics posted a few preview pages on their official site of the upcoming The All New Batman: The Brave and The Bold #13. And it looks like it could be the greatest comic of the year.
You see folks, I’m a bit of Batman fan. And as a fan of The Bat, I don’t just have a love for what some consider to be the sole protector of Gotham City. Of course I don’t, I love all of Bat family. Huntress, Batwoman, Nightwing, Batgirl, all of the them. And the most obvious member of the Bat Clan is Robin, but what a lot of non-comic obsessed folks might not know is that there has been more than one Robin. In fact, there have been several. And with the release of The All New Batman: The Brave and The Bold #13 brings all of the Robins from the past, present, and future to one comic. And that is the greatest thing.
Batman: The Brave and The Bold Season One, Part Two DVD
Starring: Diedrich Bader, John DiMaggio, Will Friedle, James Arnold Taylor
Warner Home Video
Released date: March 15, 2011
Finally, the second part of Batman: The Brave and The Bold Season One has hit store shelves, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Previously, I mentioned how much I love this show, but my love for the show didn’t really develop until the second half of season one. This is really when the show came on my radar, so I’m excited to finally get my hands on this DVD.
This DVD set features some incredibly awesome team ups and voice acting that will make any geek’s heart beat just a little faster. Some of the dream teams that we see are Batman teamed up with Etrigan The Demon, and Sherlock Holmes in “Trials of the Demon!”, Batman and a depressed Aquaman in “Mystery in Space!”, and an AWESOME team up featuring Bat-Mite in “Legends of the Dark Mite!”, which is just as crazy as it sounds. Also, in this season we have the legendary appearance of Neil Patrick Harris in the musical episode, “Mayhem of the Music Meister!”, which is just as awesome as it sounds.
