The Wilton Yearbook of Cake Decorating 1982 had been on TVTA’s ‘to get’ list for a few years …

Mainly because of this cake-tastic Star Wars ad …

Batman TV Series by Starburst

UK. Starburst. Vol 10. Number 7. March 114. 1988.

UK sci-fi magazine Starburst devoted its March 1988 cover and an article to the popular 1960s Batman series. The article, written by Jon Abbott, talks about the initial success and then decline of Batman’s three series run on the ABC network airing between 1965 and 1968, in particular to the relation of other hit fantasy shows of the time such as Lost in Space, Bewitched, Jeannie, The Monkees, Star Trek, The Time Tunnel, Land of the Giants and The Green Hornet to name some. The article also discusses the erratic and out-of-sync airings on British TV, and some of the actors to play in Batman. Below are some pics I scanned.

The Dark Knight Chirashi

This special six page fold out chirashi features portraits of Batman, Joker and Harvey Dent each presenting the viewer with a ‘signature’ item.

The front page is the movie poster of Batman standing below the burning bat logo. The reverse pages are a mixture of screen stills, info and character pics typical of chirashi.
