    The Adam West Batman TV Series Actually Saved the Batman Comics, So Here’s Some More Trivia About It

    Everyone has nostalgia for the campy 1966 Batman TV show, but without it, we might be living in a Batman-less world. It revitalized slumping sales of Batman comics at the time, despite readers' complaints that it also brought too much campiness to the book. That's just one of the little known facts we learned about the show today.

    Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

    Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

    Honey Boo Boo Has a Comic Book, and Now There’s Variant Covers

    We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.

    Your Worst Waking Nightmare: Remote-Controlled Flying Sharks

    No, we're not talking about something from Axe Cop. Or Dr. McNinja. This is an honest-to-god RC airplane that looks like a shark. We can just see a gaggle of them chasing Adam West across a theme park. Also in our nightmares. We see them in our nightmares. (via Neatorama.)

    Why Remaking The Wizard of Oz Is a Really Bad Idea

    Fresh on the heels of Alice in Wonderland's box office success, rumors are flying about not one, but two feature film remakes of The Wizard of Oz.  Now, there's more than one way to retell a story, and there are a few ways to redo Wizard that would probably work.  The odds of Hollywood actually finding those particular ways is unlikely.

    More and more often these days, I find myself shouting at movie trailers and announcements: "WHY would you remake that?" Clash of the TitansThe Karate Kid? My Fair Lady?

    I'd like to take some time and explain when a remake generally isn't a good idea, and when it generally is, and whether or not this means that The Wizard of Oz is something we should revisit.
