I believe I have found the perfect tattoo idea for Chris Sims…

…and it’s the image from this 1995 DC ad template:

Just picture that emblazoned across the manly chest of the nerdinet’s premiere Batmanologist…Forever.

I would also like to take issue with the premise of this ad, from the same Batman Forever campaign:

As I recall, the Bat-frenzy that hit during the initial Tim Burton Bat-films release didn’t repeat itself for the following films in the franchise. I think we may have seen a slight bump in interest when Batman Returns came out, but the Batfilm-bump was pretty much no longer a sales influence by the time Forever was released. (And is it just me, or does that picture of Batman anticipate the post-Flashpoint redesign nearly 16 years ahead of time?)

And, from 1997…yeah:

“There might be Batman and Robin memorabilia in this store? We better not go in!”

    What’s really sad is that I saw all of those movies of that series in the theater. Forgive me.

    So Mike, last time I was in LA, I was able to make it out to Ventura to give Ralph’s a visit & you were kind enough to dig an issue of the Maximortal out of the back room for me.
    I’m in LA again this weekend but unfortunately Ventura isn’t on the itinerary. Is there any of your distinguished competition here in the city of angels you would recommend? Next time I’m in town I promise to stop by with my list of missing 2099 issues :)
